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...

Dana Loesh Pasting Bill O'Reilley

And Roger Pilon of the Cato Institute,
The symbolism of the Democratic left’s hostility to the “tea baggers” should not go unnoticed. The tea party movement’s roots are in the American Revolution. These ordinary Americans are protesting the Washington ”Establishment” — which presently is the Democratic juggernaut – much as American Patriots were protesting the oppressive British Establishment that was “eating out their substance” with “a long train of abuses and usurpations.” The Democratic left should think long and hard about those parallels. The times they are a-changin’
.That's exactly the point.  The Tea Party movement are the ideological descendants of the men and women who fought against the usurpations of the British Paliament.  The Democratic party has taken on the onus of the the Redcoats.  Fortunately, we now have more than three dozen states preparing to file legal action in regards to this bill.  What  very few have noted is that if 37 states either send formal requests to the US Congress for a Constitutional Convention, or pass an amendment to the US Constitution, there is not one thing that this Congress can do.  That would become the law of the land, no ifs, ands or buts.
