Nemo me impune lacessit

No one provokes me with impunity


No Title of Nobility shall be granted by the United States: And no Person holding any Office of Profit or Trust under them, shall, without the Consent of the Congress, accept of any present, Emolument, Office, or Title, of any kind whatever, from any King, Prince, or foreign State.

Article 1, Section 9, Constitution of the United States

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...

Instapundit's Poll

Glenn Reynolds put out an expanded/updated poll, with twice as many choices as before and STILL Sarah Palin is far in the lead with nearly 10,000 votes cast so far...

Who would you most favor as GOP nominee in 2012?

Selection Votes
Bob Corker 3% 267
Mitch Daniels 4% 396
Mike Huckabee 2% 146
Bobby Jindal 8% 815
Sarah Palin 31% 2,988
Ron Paul 4% 357
Tim Pawlenty 11% 1,018
Mike Pence 2% 201
David Petraeus 16% 1,504
Mitt Romney 15% 1,426
Other 5% 474

9,592 votes total
Sarah has just about twice as many votes as anyone else...yet the National Party still ignores their peril.
