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.

Patriotic Air Show

Click here to enjoy the video sent by a frequent contributor to RTE that shows the 49 airplane flyover @ Arrowhead Stadium in KC during a football game after the federal government put a hold on such flyovers by the Air Force as a result of the sequester spending cut law in the early 2010s.
Forty nine patriotic pilots from all over the country volunteered to perform during the game to bring attention to & raise money for breast cancer research.  Watch for the pink smoke from their planes.


  1. Glad you mentioned that the law was passed in 2010. One less knock on Trump.

  2. Wow! What team sponsored this?

    1. They were all volunteers from all over the country.
