North Carolina Sen. Kay Hagan is sitting on the most expensive hot seat in Senate history.

Spending in her Senate race against Republican State House Speaker Thom Tillis topped $100 million, according to the Sunlight Foundation—$10 million more than the second most expensive Senate contest this year in Colorado, and roughly $30 million more than the priciest Congressional race in history before 2014.

Hagan and Tillis have been running neck-and-neck for months. In the latest CNN/ORC poll Friday, Hagan’s lead was within the margin of error, 48 to 46 percent. But the closeness of the race doesn’t fully explain the costs. Across the map, endangered Democrats and Republican hopefuls are locked in competitive contests within the margin of error.

The truth may be something that the media may be finding hard to swallow and in fact with all the media spin voters may be feeling a little beligered with all the switch and bait ads as well as the outrageous contention that seems to be a big part of this race.

With Millions and millions of dollars being poured into this election you have to wonder what the voters will do, many expect to see a different result that what the media is churning out.

That might make for a great Crow Eating News cycle in the coming days but the truth is that the media hardly ever admit when they are wrong.   In the words of Stephen King ” they have forgotten the faces of their fathers”  The media appear to be so out of touch with the people that they cannot identify with the mood of this nation and that is why it is more important than ever to get out and vote.

 


What we know?

What if what we think we know may not be what it appears to be?

What if it is just exactly what it appears to be.

Over the last four years, and if you believe the biased media the last 12 years, then you know that we have experienced a loss of faith in Washington, we have politicians, that will tell you what ever they think will convince you to vote for them then after they are elected they go about doing the exact opposite of what they said they would do…

I believe that the Voting Public be they Republican or Democratic are a little weary of all this bait and switch politics. The thing is this, how long will this go on, because you cannot campaign for one year and make promise after promise and then spend three years breaking every promise you made and then expect the voting public to have any faith in anything you have to say right? How can that work?

The answer to that question is it cannot work at all…

When you cater to the minority of the voting public, then that is what you get when you run for re-election, the smaller part of the vote. Sadly that is where Washington finds itself now, they will likely try to make it appear as though what they have done is working but all in all trust has been broken and once you break that trust it is almost impossible to stop it and reverse it.

The time to have taken action was in 2010, when the tide shifted, the time to change was then.

A great example was and still is, that 88 percent of the public is in favor of the oil pipeline. Yet, the will of the people is ignored and the Senate led by Democrat Harry Reid, is trying to make it an issue of the few over the many, the few being those that do not want an oil source that would reduce the dependance on over seas oil.

Yet, still we find that Washington is doing the very wrong thing….
