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...

Tea Party 48, Obama 44.

Scott Rasmussen has a new poll out showing that a more people support the Tea Party view than that of Barack Obama...
On major issues, 48% of voters say that the average Tea Party member is closer to their views than President Barack Obama. The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey found that 44% hold the opposite view and believe the president’s views are closer to their own.

Not surprisingly, Republicans overwhelmingly feel closer to the Tea Party and most Democrats say that their views are more like Obama’s. Among voters not affiliated with either major political party, 50% say they’re closer to the Tea Party while 38% side with the President.
This is supported in my own observations around my suburban Baltimore, MD area.  When I talk to people around Pikesville, I get pretty much the same response.  Mr. Obama ran a campaign as a moderate...and won large slices of moderates and independents...after the election he turned on those who elected and has attempted to implement policies that these small business people see as contrary to their interests.  My Congressional district is MD-3 and hasn't had a serious GOP challenger in 3 decades, now there are two.   These guys are running on an anti-government platform...reducing the size and scope of government and eliminating whole departments that really are nothing more than Democratic jobs programs as they really contribute nothing...
