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 Tea Party Is Growing In North Georga

As I've spoken of in the past, the Tea Party IS North Georgia at least. Historically speaking, this is exactly how the Republican Party started in the old "NorthWest Territory" (i.e. Ohio, Mich, Ill, Ind, Wis, Minn)...a small group of disatisfied voters who banded together and started a new party.
There's a political movement percolating in North Georgia, and it's picking up steam.

Catoosa, Gilmer and Walker counties have tea party groups, and new ones are forming in Dade and Whitfield counties.

"My desire is to go through all of the (Georgia's) 9th Congressional District and organize tea parties," said James Groce, a leader with the Tea Party of Walker County.
They're starting small, but building...I wouldn't be at all surprised to see them begin to elect people not just locally, but nationally next year.
But if their candidates do not win Republican primaries, will Tea Party activists support their own third-party candidates in the fall elections, prompting what Republican strategist Bill McInturff conceded would be a "disaster" for the GOP? Will their supporters simply not vote? Or could their movement, born of concern over government spending even when Republicans were in control, end up taking down incumbents of all political stripes?

"Right now the Tea Party movement has higher favorables (in polls) than either the Democratic Party or the Republican Party," said Democratic pollster Fred Yang. "Eleven months from now, the enemy could be all of us."
In other words, either you support the goals of the Tea Party, or they will actively work against you...Go Tea Party!
