If this is the law of the land...why in a republic (little r) and as republicans, do we allow mere POLITICIANS to the right to use a "title of office" for the rest of their lives as if it were de facto a patent of nobility. Because, as republicans, this should NOT be the case...just saying...

I'd say the results speak for themselves. The GOP leadership has gone far astray from what the rank and file would like to see done. They've become, in and of themselves, the party of expediency...not the GOP. This follows from my post below about three women we in the "grass roots" would like to see become de facto leaders of our party, and not be ignored by our "elite leaders".
