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.

On Saturday night of Independence Day weekend, as part of the Celebrate Freedom Rally @ the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, the choir of the First Baptist Church of Dallas (pictured above) premiered a song entitled "Make America Great Again" – written by the church's former minister of music.
to hear the real version of the performance that President Trump tweeted @ 6:38 AM on July 4.

Note July 29, 2020 - the original video was taken down by the owner.  The new one I inserted above was very close to that original.
