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...

National GOP Absent In Mass Senatorial Special Election

The National GOP committees are completely absent from the Massachusetts Senatorial special election.
GOP U.S. Senate candidate Scott Brown has been all but abandoned by the same national Republican committees that pumped hundreds of thousands in campaign cash to former governors Mitt Romney and William Weld during their long-shot bids for U.S. Senate.

The snub has outraged local Republicans who say national conservatives should be jumping at the chance to nab the first open Senate seat in decades despite Brown’s tough odds in the Jan. 19 special election.
This is a shame given that the national committees backed Scozaffava in NY-23, even when she was far less of a Republican than Mr. Brown is. This is why I've become very disenchanted with the various national GOP committees.

Hmm. So what is it about Brown that scares the GOP? I am just starting to follow this story, so I know very little about Brown at all.

Is he not moderate enough? Is he too Conservative? Is he not GOP material? Apparently it is something offensive or scary to the GOP, now isn't it?

Inquiring minds want to know.

From what I can see it's more a case of "gee wiz, we might not win this one." So they don't even try. But if they made it a referendom on Obama's policies, I think they could put a Conservative in for the first time since Henry Cabot Lodge held a seat. I think they're making a mistake...but, that's what the GOP does, FUBAR.
