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...

Tea Party To Become Majority of GOP?

Rep. Michele Bachmann told Bill O’Reilly on his show tonight that the tea party movement will become the dominant movement within the Republican Party.
She added that if the Republicans are smart they will embrace them.
Yep...I'm much less conservative on social issues (more libertarian that is...I don't give a damn what you do as long as you don't impinge upon me while I'm doing mine), but fiscally, I'm very conservative. I'd like to see those federal departments that are just jobs programs masquerading as "something important" were eliminated (education, "Homeland Security"-isn't that what DoD is for?, labour, just to name a few) and those people put to doing something productive, like working for a living, instead of sucking off Uncle Sam's hind tit.

But reader, Reader Paul Lee has a great suggestion:
Regarding your link about whether the Tea Party becoming a dominant force in the Republican Party, I offer this suggestion: when giving money to any candidate going forward, make sure you to accompany the cash with a note that says, “Tea Party strings attached to this contribution.”

If enough people do it, politicians will begin to understand that fiscal conservatism isn’t something they can give meaningless lip service to.
If enough people do that, maybe the damn politicians will actually begin to pay attention. The best suggestion I've heard is simply don't send money to the RNC...send it directly to the politician...with the above note. That way, pol's will REALLY know what you think.
