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...

The Trump Inside Their Head

I don't post much any more. That's mostly because there are far better people who blog, who are much more facile in the use of language. That being said, I have a pretty good idea what Democrats keep losing in the past 4 special elections. 

When someone lives inside your head, you'll always have problems. Trump lives inside all the talking heads of the Left. He owns them. Until they have a message beyond "The Resistance" (as if they were like the French "resisting" the Germans) he will continue to own them. "We're not Trump" didn't work in 2016, its not working now and it won't work in 2018 or 2020. Until they can come up with a coherent message, and economic plan that doesn't showcase Socialism (just look hard @ Venezuela now, and what is happening in Illinois) they will continue to fail. Americans rejected Obama's sub 2% annual economic growth by voting against Hillary. Untl they can do more than scream like spoiled brats "its not fair Hillary lost", or "the Russians did it" they will continue to lose, by ever growing margins.

When you toss in the ever worsening tantrums of "children" in our universities, you begin to see what is happening. The Democratic Party in general and Leftist Liberals in particular have gone completely off the rails. They've done a 180 degree reversal of what Classical Liberalism used to be.

Unless they get a grip on reality, Middle America will continue to kick them to the curb. Right now, the Democratic Party is maginal. Their only majorities are in metropolitan areas, and both coasts. They are in danger of becoming irrelevant in the grand scheme of things. Thats not good as our system of government NEEDS two effective parties to work.
