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...

Democratic Control Of Congress

For the most part since 1932, the Democratic party has controled Congress.  Not just one house occasionally, but both, as well as the office of the Presidency.  From the comments section on "what the little people think" about the recent downgrading of US debt by S&P.  The article the comments come from is linked here.


Iceman, the Dems are not blind, or stupid. They just want job security: their own. Carville says in his book that the Dems will rule for 40 years. The Dems have been the dominant party since 1930. Here's some facts on that since 1930:

The Democrats controlled the House:
1930-46
1948-52
1954-94
2006-present
R-16 years, D=60 years

The Democrats controlled the Senate:

1932-46
1948-52
1954-80
1986-94
2000 (a week)
2001-02
2006-present
R-21 years, D=55 years

The Democrats controlled the Presidency
1932-52
1960-68
1976-80
1992-00
2008-present
R-36 years, D-40 years.

There has been Democratic control over both houses of Congress and the Presidency:

2008 to present
1992-94
1976-80
1960-68
1948-52
1932-46.
That is, 28 years in the lifetime of most Americans.

There has been Republican control over both houses of Congress and the Presidency:

1952-54
Jan. 20-June 6, 2001
2002-06.

See what I mean. And don't forget, Congress makes the budget, not the President. If it wasn't for Brown's election, followed by the November 2010's election, this Country would be closer to bankruptcy than it is now, the Constitution would be a memory, and our Democratic government would take care of everyone, via taxes, and the beginning of our new socialist form of living, like eastern Europe.
Don't think the Dems are blind, or stupid. They know what they're doing
What Democrats are truly afraid of is that "the little people" will finally figure out that the vast majority of US debt stems from Democratic party policies that were passed and larded upon through their control of Congress...and that they will be blamed, rightly, for what we are now going through.

After all, from January of 2007, when the Democratic Party took control of Congress, they passed the largest of "Bush's" deficit budgets ($400 billion dollars)...once Mr. Obama took over the White House,  the deficit spigot became gusher, and they have in the past several years added fully 1/3rd to the US debt...it's so bad, that in 2010, neither the House of Representatives, under Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) or the Senate under Harry Reid (D-UT) passed a budget bill, because they were terrified of what would happen to their rather slim majorities if they did...they're still playing politics...and We The People will end up paying for this.
