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.

Yair Lapid - The Last Train To Lodz

Thanks to my dear friend whose family has been charter members of RTE for sending this dynamic speech by Yair Lapid, the Alternate Prime Minister of Israel (Prime Minister-Designate) who will come into office on August 27, 2023 - if the government survives.

The cite of the speech is the Berlin train station where 1,251 Jews boarded the first Holocaust train to Nazi concentration, forced labor, & extermination camps.

During the speech Prime Minister-Designate Lapid questioned how Germans in Berlin in 1933 could lower their heads & without raising a finger hope the evil they knew Hitler embodied would somehow pass on its own.  

But Yair Lapid doesn't stop there; he asks how could 1,251 Jews board a train heading east to the Lodz, Poland ghetto - all destined for their deaths, without one of them "attacking the guards in black uniforms," all knowing that hard labor, overcrowding, & starvation were their future.  And he answers the question saying, under his leadership, "we will never board that train again."

As I listened to the above speech I saw the parallels of the evils then in Germany & today in America as evil is transforming America, right before our eyes, as Americans lower their heads & hope our current evil too will pass.  I liken the Germans with lowered heads described above in 1933 to the silent majority in America today.

Either we want to defund/disband the police & let criminals run wild & teach critical race theory to our children in our schools that America is rotten to its core or we don't.  

Now I know people who are so disengaged, really oblivious, that they do not understand what I just wrote & that is unacceptably irresponsible regardless of how busy they are trying to make a living or raise a family.  Many of these oblivious people never have thought of not having a police force because they always have had one when it was needed or have never heard of critical race theory that is dividing Americans including their own children from themselves.  Unless the silent majority speaks up very soon to swat down these doctrines one can only conclude that what is happening in America, in both these regards & others, is what the majority, who are engaged, want.


  1. Last paragraph, they are mostly "truth deniers"; they will not believe anything but the lies from the left.

  2. Thanks for the latest post, greatly appreciated. Keep them coming.

    Your points in your post must be well heeded by all Americans. Those who do not learn from history tend to repeat mistakes that can be deadly. Hence we must all confront and challenge the growth of American Marxism ( with CRT main driver of Marxism class struggle ). We must all lead by example and live the classic American dream. And we must in civil ways make clear to many of our friends who are oblivious to Marxism to understand the consequences of not challenging this trend.

    Also, contact your Congressman and Senators via web email of your concerns. And point out where their policies run counter to your interests. And suggest ways they can improve their support for policies that will unite Americans and support our Constitutional freedoms.

  4. So sad!

    In Philadelphia, car accidents get no or many hours later police response. People drive w/o licenses, insurance, registration, then leave the scene. Stop signs are ignored in many instances.

    The majority at the pool are rightly disturbed by our country’s situation and leadership but some refuse to acknowledge that there is an incompetent, corrupt group in leadership. I cannot even talk about it!!!! I am praying - Our Lady is the patroness of our Country and I trust that she will not allow us to be destroyed! My heart aches for those in Afghanistan, Haiti, and the flood and wildfire victims. Please God, may our country come to its sense!
