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...

Top Political Donors

Gee, with Harry Reid's all-nighter to appease Tom Steyer so that Steyer would then agree to spend $100 million dollars for Senate Democrats...but that's ok right? He's not part of the .0001% or anything...and what about this lovely list...how many of these are part of the so called 1%'ers...and give a vast majority to "Progressive" candidates and/or Democrats?

As you can see the boogiemen, the Koch brothers rank no higher than 51st. Now, count how many individuals/organizations ONLY donate money to Liberal/Progressives...they outnumber those who donate to Conservatives by a significant percentage.
