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...

Health Care Reform: An interesting point

I saw the following point on Real Clear Politics:

"Of the ~ 45 million uninsured, about 1/3 are citizens of other countries (almost all breaking US law by being here), about 1/3 have chosen not to buy insurance, or are already eligible for other programs (Medicaid, etc.) but have chosen not to sign up. This leaves about 15 million charity cases to address. Obama plans to disrupt the current arrangements of about 250 million people to "solve" this problem. Of course the real goal is not health care, but to put 18% of the economy under Government control. As people become aware of this, they are not happy."

Therein lies the dichotomy of the problem. Mr. Obama wants to completely disrupt economy, to merely cover less than 6% of the population. The only way to do something to halt this insanity is to write you congressmen and senators and simply ask them if they will accept the coverage of the public option if they vote affimatively
