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...

Generic Ballot: GOP 45% - Dem's 36%

Rasmussen Reports has a new poll out on how the parties stand today.  The GOP has made huge inroads while the Democratic Party continues it's slide...
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 45% would vote for their district's Republican congressional candidate, while 36% would opt for his or her Democratic opponent. But support for both parties is down two points from last week. Still, since the beginning of the year, the Republican lead hasn't dipped below seven points.

Three weeks after Congress passed its new national health care plan, support for repeal of the measure has risen four points to 58%. That includes 50% of voters who strongly favor repeal. Also, 47% of voters believe repeal of the recently passed health care law will be good for the economy.


Come November, I won't be at all surprised to see the Democrats lose 100 seats in the House and 12 in the Senate.
