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...

America Rejects Socialism

Yesterday's election results will be spun in various ways by various groups, but what it comes down to this this:  America has rejected the socialist agenda of the Democratic Party.  Even a dullard like our current Vice President, Mr. Biden understands this
Vice President Joe Biden on Monday said if Republicans succeed in winning back the House in 2010, it would be the "end of the road" for the White House's agenda.
My real concern is that the GOP leadership in Congress won't understand the very shakey "mandate" they've  been given by an angry citizenry.  They must, without hesitation, begin rolling back both the enormous size of our current federal government, but also must vastly reduce it's intrusion in both business as well as that of they people. 

American government is designed around one small but significant idea, that our government must be,  
“A wise and frugal government, which shall restrain men from injuring one another, which shall leave them otherwise free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned. This is the sum of good government.”  Thomas Jefferson, First Inaugural Address, 4 March 1801.
That's by the founder of the Democratic party.  A party that's forgotten it's roots and drifted so far away from what the founder's intended that's it's nearly indistinguishable from European socialist parties.  Indeed, here's video of important members of the Democratic party saluting and declaring solidarity with the European Socialist Parties at their EU convention last year.

But, the leaders of the GOP must understand this:  If they fail to even attempt the task for which American has entrusted them, they too will be swept aside in 2012...take heed!
