The May 6 Republican Senate primary in North Carolina will decide which candidate will face Democrat Kay Hagan in November — and if there will first be a runoff election. If a single candidate gets 40 percent of the vote, he will become the nominee. If not, the runner-up may request a runoff election, to be held July 15.
The Founding Fathers created the U.S. government for the express purpose of securing the God-given individual rights of Americans, according to the Declaration of Independence. A poll released last month, however, confirmed yet again that a majority of voters now view the perpetually expanding Leviathan as a threat to those rights and individual liberty. More than one in three Americans even fears the federal government, the recent poll showed, confirming other surveys finding broad public agreement that Washington, D.C., has become dangerous and out of control.
