Ann,

I'm really not enamored of either candidate nor do I intend to vote for either.

But a few years ago, when I called Dole's office to complain about the insane cost of insurance for the self-employed, one of her flunkies told me I should "get a real job" such as she had.

The polls seem to indicate that Hagan has the election in the bag, so it appears as though Liddy may have to get herself a real job.

Too bad.

Jeff - You don't have to be totally enamored - look carefully at the candidates (not the ads) and vote for the person you think is best for the job. Don't let someone else make this very important choice for you.

As a NC state senate 'budget writer' Hagan has helped to INCREASE NC TAXES by 51% along with Sugar Dumplin Status Quo Bev Perdue. Hagan is a pompous biotch, much like Carol Peterson, who will not answer simple questions. AND, she owns OIL WELLS because of which she wont support offshore drilling. She IS a major CORRUPT democrat in the NC Senate. She IS NOT good for NC, as NO democrats ARE!

The Rawleigh News and Observer called Hagan's budget writing 'an embarrassment' to the state.
$900 MILLION in new taxes and spending.

WHY do democrats tax your food in NC? And the poor people keep on voting for those who OPPRESS them...why?

Ann,

Pay attention, Jeff. Munger is running for governor. Christopher Cole is the Libertarian running for US Senate. Look at his web-site before deciding to vote for him.

Hagan and her husband own small shares in oil companies. Dole and her husband have way more money invested in oil wells. Both candidates have reversed their opposition to offshore drilling in NC.

I would be interested in a copy of the News and Observer article. The State of North Carolina does not tax food. There are exceptions like candy, soft drinks and prepared food, but no grocery store food state tax. There can be local taxes on food - that is up to the individual counties.

I respect your decision to vote for who you please, but please check your facts. Thank you.

I tried to look this information up - could not locate anything like it. However I did come across the Raleigh News and Observer's endorsement of Sen. Hagan:

From The News & Observer of Raleigh, Oct. 22

Endorsement: Kay Hagan

Kay Hagan has moved through the good old boy network that rules the N.C. General Assembly on the strength of her grit, her intelligence and her imagination. In 10 years in the state Senate, the Greensboro Democrat has become an effective legislator with a broad vision of statewide issues. Now, she seeks to oust incumbent Republican U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Dole, elected in 2002, and to be a change agent in Washington.

The News & Observer is giving Hagan its editorial endorsement in this campaign.

Hagan, 55, an attorney who has worked in the banking field, is at ease with a variety of individuals and groups that represent the diversity of North Carolina. She has traveled nonstop in the state since deciding to seek the Senate seat. She has made this a competitive race - something other potential candidates in the Democratic Party, including ones who were better known, didn't think was possible, which is why none of those big names decided to challenge Dole....
Imagination, and a belief that change is possible - there are some cornerstones in Hagan's campaign. She is well-informed, not just well-meaning. She is astute. Her record in Raleigh indicates she knows how to make a legislative system work. It forecasts a promising career in the U.S. Senate.

Nope. However, on the face of it, teaching children the importance of their civic responsibility is probably a good idea.

it is, except that Kids Voting is slanted very
democrat/socialist to suit the government school indoctrination agenda.

Ann,

Since there is not (yet) a choice of "None of the Above" at the ballot box, the reason which I would vote for Cole (might as well be a write-in for Munger) is to effectively send that same message to the party higher-ups.
