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.

Independence Day Quiz

To have some fun with American history over the Independence Day holiday click here to take the subject quiz.  At the end of the quiz you will receive your score & a note letting you know how you did compared to other quiz takers.
Unlike the other quizzes that I present from time to time the answers & an explanation appear after every question so this is not just a quiz but an excellent refresher.


  1. I got an 89. I missed a couple where I knew the answer as I hit the wrong one. Its what I get for trying to go too quick

  2. I got 32 out of 35...thanks for sending...fairly easy on the whole , I'd say. but some tough ones mixed in.

  3. I hope everyone does well on this quiz, then we will know that maybe, just maybe, American History is being taught in our schools. I scored a 94%, 33 out of 35! I like this type of quiz way better than the math quizzes!

  4. Dumb mistakes on those I was iffy about - 80%

  5. Happy 4th of July. Quiz was too easy but fun. Hope all is well with you two!!

    Keep Smiling!
