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.

Venezuelan's Appreciation For America

Over the past several weeks Carol & I have had a continuing working relationship with a person I recently found out came from Venezuela only a few years ago - I sent this person the post Venezuela & America Provide A Definitive Comparison Between A Socialist & Capitalist Economy.

I received the following respond from this person with direct experience with Venezuelan socialism:

"I think the research work you have done is excellent, I totally agree with you.

'"Wherever the free market has been permitted to operate, wherever anything approaching equality of opportunity has existed, the ordinary man has been able to obtain levels of living never dreamed of before.  Nowhere is the gap between rich & poor wider, nowhere are the rich richer or the poor poorer, than in those societies that do not permit the free market to operate. 

"This paragraph expresses very well what happens in socialism.  You as American citizens cannot allow socialism to take hold or that way of thinking to spread."

I was very pleased to receive this response from a Venezuelan who obviously appreciates the United States but then saddened when I thought of all the things Americans are working double time to throw away. 


  1. Last year I posted this video at least a dozen times and never had any return comments. Does it tell a good story or is it too complicated for most to understand or just unbelievable. I really think most Americans do not understand or don't want to. They still believe the lies the politicians say.
