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...

Rand Paul Wins GOP Nomination in KY Senate Race

Rand Paul has won by a comfortable margin against the estalishment's pick, Trey Greyson...the Tea Party was his margin of victory in that race.  Conventional wisdom is that he has inherited much information from his father, Ron Paul, (R-TX), but as a good friend of mine who has worked on his campaign for the past several months tells me, that just isn't so.  His campaign manager had previously worked on a successful county commission campaign, and Rand had never run for anything, nor worked to any significant extent on his father's campaigns...

At this time, Rand has 59% of the vote to 37% for Mr. Greyson...a significant hammering if these numbers continue to hold...
