That sentiment is common - but wholly out of whack with the law.

Going back, before national socialism (1935) and even to the 18th century, you will find numerous court decisions that recognize that :
  1. American people are sovereign, and
  2. Government is their servant.
Yet, you will also find that citizens, by definition, are subjects. There is no such thing as a sovereign citizen. A sovereign is not a citizen. (The Queen of England is not a citizen of England - she's the sovereign!)

What was originally designed, was a government populated from a small subset of the people, voluntary subject citizens, property owners, who had PAID taxes, and thus were quite frugal in expending public monies.

But America was infiltrated and warped from the republican form into the democratic form and now, into the democratic socialist form.

There is no way for "the people" to control a government they are subjects of. The only way is for the people to extricate themselves from submission to the socialist state. Then the government ceases to be their master, and reverts back to servant.

I distrust all these stories about the catastrophic, massive defeat the dems will suffer at the polls next week.

Like this story;

Midterm blowout: 50 or more Dem seats set to fall in the election - TheHill.com (http://thehill.com/house-polls/thehill-poll-week-4/126001-blowout-50-or-more-dem-seats-set-to-fall - broken link)



Isn't this a bit over the top? Remember who these people are - Leftists to the core, in the newsrooms, the pollsters, the reporters, the editors - the vast majority are Lefties and will do all they can to aid obama and the dems.

They should not be trusted!

Predictions like this;

New Polls Suggest Sizable GOP Landslide - Hotline On Call



Or from the election "gurus";

Cook Political Ups Projected Democratic Losses To 48 to 60 - Hotline On Call
Larry J. Sabato's Crystal Ball
Morning Jay: Special "Penultimate Predictions" Edition! | The Weekly Standard
House Ratings | The Rothenberg Political Report
G.O.P. Now Favored to Win 50-Plus House Seats - NYTimes.com

Remember, these people have an agenda to see that conservatives are damaged as much as possible and for the dems retain their majorities. What better way to deflate the conservative brand than to manufacture such high expectations only to see the opposite on election night.

This "consensus" by the pundit, experts and media is suspicious, they cannot be trusted!

Just get out and vote.
I love it when all the excuses start coming out. Who really knows how many, if any, House or Senate seats are won or lost next week? We know our hopes, that is all we know. But I do find it amusing to see the hedging start.

What hedging? Now if all the pundits and gurus were actually hedging, you might have a point, but I'm just stating a suspicion of mine about the MSM and the narrative they've created.

I guess Rs are outperforming registration numbers in early voting. 35% registered Rs to 33% registered Ds...and that doesn't count those Indies.

According to the news reports, independent early voting numbers are much lower than their registration numbers.

So as I said, we are currently seeing a higher turnout of registered Democrat voters in this election in key areas.
Maybe a higher turnout of early voter FRAUD which is typical in the demorat party.
