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.

Merry Christmas & Happy 2018 From The Trump White House

Shortly after Thanksgiving First Lady Melania Trump unveiled this year's Christmas decorations @ the White House saying "The President, Barron, & I are very excited for our first Christmas in the White House."
The 2017 theme is Time Honored Traditions as shown in the White House Christmas booklet, which features Barron leading guests on a tour of the White House.  See below.

The Trumps returned to another tradition in that the White House Christmas Card actually says Merry Christmas.  See below.

Below Melania hugs children in the East Room during her tour of the decorations.  One boy asks "Are you the first lady?!" as he embraced her.  "She seriously looks like an angel," another child said.
