I can't wait until Wednesday.

Monday, November 05, 2012

Every day I get 4-6 pieces (or more) of political mail. I probably watch less than 10 hours of television a week and still have seen more tv ads than I would have thought possible.

Too bad there is nothing I can put on my tv that deletes all those ads because I am not an undecided voter and no ad is going to change my vote. I have found a series I like but am watching it On Demand until the election is over.

It disgusts me that candidates tell lies without hesitation or conscience. It disgusts me more that so many voters are accepting the lies. And I am not even referring to the misrepresentations that both sides are spouting.

At least I don't live in Ohio.

  Back to reality as it is over! I stayed away from the regular TV stations and watched movies with no interruptions! It's the same with reality shows which I don't watch however, the news stations feel it's news! If you send the political ads and anything else you don't want, back to them in their free postage envelopes, it may stop or slow down a bit. Oh, well, it is, what it is! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    As you know, I DO live in Ohio.

Its been insane with all the back-to-back(stabbing) ads over the past month. My mail has been a storm of propaganda garbage. I'll be glad to get back to a mostly empty mailbox and normal ads on TV.

    And what about those constant robo-calls on the answering machine? Sooooo annoying.

    I finally started using the mute button. We also DVR programs and then skip through the ads.

    Long wait at the polls. I arrived before they open and the line was out the door.

    In South Texas the ads are few. Guess the candidates know it's a solid Republican state so, no need to drop the $$$.

    I am so looking forward to Wednesday, and I agree 100%, it is who tells the biggest lies, and spends the most money, smething should be done, but what, and yes, these electoral votes are weird this year,

    Can't wait for Wednesday. I live in Texas and unless something extremely radical happens the electorial votes for Texas were decided long ago. I don't watch any TV but am very tired of all the remarks on FaceBook that are so dehumanizing to their opposing side.

    You're right on, Ray.

It seems that we're going to get the best president that buying advertising can elect.

    Agreed. It was tough watching the Steelers game. All those political ads, and all for the same candidate.

Not to mention the messages on the home phone (currently at 9 unheard.)

    Haha I was just going to say, you must live in Ohio! But I have to say, even when the ads annoy me and the brazen-ness of the lying astounds me, I get almost teary-eyed about democracy and how amazingly radical it was when our founding fathers (and yes, even then some mothers too!) came up with a system where sovereignty resides in the people. Not perfect, but better than the alternatives. However, that being said, I too will be glad when Wednesday arrives!
