Negative Ads

28 July 2010 2 Comments

As we approach the elections, under 100 days I believe, we can expect the frequency of the negative advertisements of one candidate bashing the other to continue.  Where I live, it’s already begun to a high level of intensity.  It honestly makes me sick.  When I look at the multiple full color printed items that arrive in my mailbox on a daily basis (of which I throw away without looking at them), I think of all the wasted resources that go into these ridiculous elections.  What a joke.  Talk about an unproductive allocation of resources.  Have they started already where you live?

    I'm thinking of employing a new philosophy to decide who I'm going to vote for in the event that I'm undecided. It would involve driving around, looking at yard signs, and looking at the house/yard of where the sign is located. The candidate who can get his/her signs in the nicest and best kept up places would get my vote. I mean, it can't be any worse than voting based off the awful TV and radio ads that don't tell us anything, right?

    I live in Texas…so I never get to see much political banter, at least on the national level. I actually find it all a little amusing. It's like wrestling for politicos…fake punches and all.
