About Me

In writing the "About Me" portion of this blog I thought about the purpose of the blog - namely, preventing the growth of Socialism & stopping the Death Of Democracy in the American Republic & returning her to the "liberty to abundance" stage of our history. One word descriptions of people's philosophies or purposes are quite often inadequate. I feel that I am "liberal" meaning that I am broad minded, independent, generous, hospitable, & magnanimous. Under these terms "liberal" is a perfectly good word that has been corrupted over the years to mean the person is a left-winger or as Mark Levin more accurately wrote in his book "Liberty & Tyranny" a "statist" - someone looking for government or state control of society. I am certainly not that & have dedicated the blog to fighting this. I believe that I find what I am when I consider whether or not I am a "conservative" & specifically when I ask what is it that I am trying to conserve? It is the libertarian principles that America was founded upon & originally followed. That is the Return To Excellence that this blog is named for & is all about.

The Needed Mindset Change - Dependence To Prosperity

For years I have written about the general deterioration of employment in America including specifically the reduction in median income as well as less seemingly relevant matters to some like the misuse of federal agencies such as the IRS, EPA, NSA, & Justice Department, the cover up of the truth concerning the murders in Benghazi, Libya on 9/11 2012, & BO's planned destruction of America's oil, gas, & coal industries under the widely held but manmade pseudo science formerly known as global warming.
Many Americans are concerned about the employment & income topics because they can see how they directly affect their lives – the other topics are not of immediate concern, or of any concern @ all to the citizenry of a nation floating somewhere in the final two stages of Death Of Democracy – apathy to dependence & dependence back into bondage.
At this point in people's breakdown in the ability to make a living their interest & attention is not held by airliners shot out of the sky over Ukraine with Russian made missiles, the al Qaeda offshoot ISIS (Islamic State in Iraq & al-Sham) army taking over a significant portion of Iraq & Syria setting up a caliphate, Hamas & Israel shooting rockets @ each other day & night, or the advancement of the Iranian nuclear bomb capability.
The root cause of the country's economic decline is that the majority of people prefer to redistribute wealth than to create wealth - 150 million Americans live in households that receive some kind of government assistance.  This deterioration of the work ethic has torn the heart out of people who live on a combination of part time jobs, receiving government checks, & spending down the wealth their families accumulated over their lifetimes. The choice regarding creating wealth or redistributing wealth is really a choice between prosperity or poverty for America – & BO, the Democrat controlled Senate, & the establishment Republican controlled House, that can't get out of its own way, all side with redistribution.
There are faint signs that people may be catching on to the mismanagement & dereliction of duty of our elected representatives.  The increase in the public's awareness of wounded veterans dying in poorly run VA facilities is a crack in the politicians' armor.  After all what politician would not @ least make it look like they respect & support the troops even if they know nothing about the troops & have no intention of ever becoming a member of the troops themselves.  This VA disgrace did not escape BO who continued his feigned facade of concern by attempting to move the VA scandal off the front pages by negotiating with the Taliban for the exchange of five terrorist generals held @ the Guantanamo prison for the release of private first class [later promoted in absentia (desertia?) to specialist & in turn sergeant] Bowe Bergdahl. 
Following a disastrous rose garden ceremony with Bergdahl's parents it quickly became obvious that BO thought his image had jumped from the frying pan into the fire trading the VA story for Bergdahl's release story – but this too has faded into the distant or non-existent memory of a citizenry whose family budget meetings around their kitchen tables dominate their attention.  (Further complicating BO's image pickle is the fact that Marine Sergeant Andrew Tahmooressi is suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder in a Mexican jail after serving two tours of duty in Afghanistan.)
To counter all of this BO captured Ahmed Abu Khatallah, the suspected leader of the Benghazi murders.  Now Khatallah had been interviewed several times in the last 21 months by journalists who sat inches from him but he was only captured when it was convenient for BOlike right now.
But simultaneous to much of this, reports started coming in from our southern border that unaccompanied children from several Central American countries were not only crossing the border from Mexico, but were handing themselves in to border agents immediately after doing so in order to obtain sanctuary under BO's lack of enforcement of immigration laws & specifically BO's encouragement to come to America through his Deferred Action For Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program that is purposely being misinterpreted by all concerned.
Chris Cabrera, 13 year Border Patrol veteran & now a vice president in the National Border Patrol Council Local 3307 says children are being prompted to say -  "Obama will take care of us."  "We are going to get amnesty when we get here. Where is my permiso? Where is my permission to go north so I can get my medical care and my schooling and all that? President Obama is going to take care of us and make sure we're all OK."
In brief, the children are being used as pawns & the following poll results show that the American people have sympathy for the children but also recognize that we are being played for fools.  Seventy-seven percent of those polled do not want the children to stay in America – to one degree or another.  And an even larger 81% finally have met an issue they think is important other than their livelihoods.

Can Americans who are not making ends meet be concerned about lost IRS e-mails & destroyed computer hard drives – we know not.  But elevate the problem to the citizenry realizing the NSA is spying on them while the country simultaneously provides more privacy rights & free legal representation to people flocking to our southern border than it does to them & you have a chance that the country can be turned around.
The above list of problems show that we are & have been @ the same point since before the 2012 presidential election campaign – namely, that the type of issues that used to be important (& really still are) to the citizens of a strong U.S. now mean nothing.  With BO's manipulated contrived lackluster economy people vote for the politicians who promise & provide the welfare they need.  This explains how BO won reelection in 2012 with the weakest pro-American record of any previous incumbent president.  It also explains why a Democrat will win every future presidential election in our lifetimes if a change in mindset from dependence to prosperity is not made.


  1. You do not like BO. I also do not like him, but he is a "sly fox."

    By admitting immigrants or favoring immigrants to come to U.S through Mexico, he is paving the way for Democrats to win elections by large margins in U.S., maybe this year but certainly in future years.

    By permitting immigrants to enter U S, they will get most of the Hispanic vote (they are fastest growing group of voters, if they vote, in U.S.).

    I might be wrong (hope so) but BO is no fool, get the Hispanic vote together with regular Democrats, and you have a very good chance of winning. This does not mean ALL states will go for Democrats, but they will get most votes in large population states, and as of now, Republicans have no solution to this problem.

    BO not liked now, but when next presidential election is held, he will not be running, and that is where Democrats will push for Hispanic vote.

    Republicans have to come up with solutions to cater to the "masses", not to the few.

    You most likely will not agree, but as of now - I say BO is a "sly fox."

    1. Not only do I agree but that is the reason I ended the post “. . . also explains why a Democrat will win every future presidential elections in our lifetimes if a change in mindset is not made from dependence to prosperity.”
