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...

National GOP Ignoring Brown In Massachusetts

Rasmussen now has Scott Brown (R) within 9 points of Martha Coakley (D) in the special election for the now vacant senate seat in Massachusetts. This is stunning considering the MA is a blue/blue state. To have a Republican challenger that close is unimaginable! Yet the national GOP leadership has all but ignored and abandoned this race to the Democrats. The stupidity of this is readily apparent.

By making this race a referendum on the Democratic national leadership, we on the right can in effect show the disenchantment of the populace in a blue state, and at the same time...kill off the very unpopular "health care reform." By not doing this, the GOP is being monumentally stupid. Buy you can see why they lost control of Congress...they've forgotten just who they are...fiscally responsible...
*"Twenty-one percent (21%) of those likely to vote in the special election have a very favorable opinion of Coakley, while 22% have a Very Unfavorable view. For Brown, the numbers are 25% very favorable and 5% very unfavorable."
*"Special elections are typically decided by who shows up to vote and it is clear from the data that Brown’s supporters are more enthusiastic. In fact, among those who are absolutely certain they will vote, Brown pulls to within two points of Coakley. That suggests a very low turnout will help the Republican and a higher turnout is better for the Democrat."
*"Brown leads 65% to 21% among voters not affiliated with either of the major parties."
Perhaps the national GOP is irrelevent. I wouldn't be at all surrprized, after all, they are the reason the GOP lost control of Congress in the first place.
