    The Mute button on my TV remote is getting a real workout.

    Then just perhaps it would be better to do something besides being a couch potato (or chair, as in this case). Read a book, make something with a hobby, go for a walk, or even just get some sleep, at least until the next election. Heck, you could even get on the internet and make comments on sites such as this one!!

    Last night was a virtual landslide of sleazy political commercials. They put the National Enquirer to journalistic shame. The media is probably making money hand over fist but I think I am going to live in a cave for the next week and a half.

    No wonder folks don’t vote! The ads make all of the candidates look like Satanists!

    32 individuals contributed more money in the last presidential election than all other donors combined. That makes it seem like it is impossible for the middle class to have any say in what happens in this country. Nothing could be further from the truth. Those 32 people only have 32 votes. The Middle Class has millions…………………………………………………………………………….
    ………………The only thing that is going to save the Middle Class is the Middle Class. We are the 99%—- that means we have the votes to elect people who will actually represent middle class workers and provide a safety net for those who are trying to get into the middle class.We all need to know WHO is supporting the candidates. That is who they will be working for. They have no choice if they want to stay in office. You have to do the bidding of whoever is paying your way, just the same as we all do in our jobs. So, before going to vote, look it up on the internet. Open Secrets is a good site, but there are plenty ………………………………………………………………………….
    ………………….. If the candidate is getting their money from small donors or from unions, they are going to be working for middle class working people. If their donations are from corporations or from 1%ers, that’s who their votes are going to be working for. They are not going to go against them and do anything to help the middle class……………………………………
    ………………………………………………………………………………….
    It would be political suicide.

    If you really want to eliminate negative ads, vote against anyone who runs one. The campaigns have people who determine what works. They run those ads because they work, and they work because most voters don’t do enough research to make logical decisions, they actually believe what they see on TV. If enough people voted against those ads, they would disappear just as soon as the politicos realized they weren’t working.

    There you go again, being logical.

    Seriously, though, it will be almost impossible to eliminate those ads, even assuming that voters will actually vote their best interests, which is a large assumption.

    It is easier to tear another person apart than to build yourself up, especially if you are a newcomer against an incumbent.

    As an illustration, count the number of posts here on this site stating how bad Mr. Obama was, and contrast that to the number of posters who state why Mr. Romney would have been a better choice.

    Inhofe of Oklahoma calls for small government and large military. He may be looking for a military coup to advance his priorities. He may also be wanting a large military to protect us from the effect of his international policies in other countries.

    I only watch about 4 hours of television a week. The TV is on far more than that but I largely am not paying attention. I am doing other things, and I do spend time on the internet. But I am seriously fed up with the campaign ads. Every single ad from a republican candidate or in favor of a republican candidate is either filled with lies, yes actual, easily proven by thinking adults, lies or it is so self-serving of the candidate that you can’t help but hold them in contempt. The Democrats aren’t much better, but at least their ads are manipulations of the truth, not outright lies like the republicans. Neither is ethical, both are dishonest, but if that’s all I have a choice of, I’ll take the manipulation of the truth over the outright lies. I’ll hold my nose, I’ll cast my ballot with utter contempt for the candidate and for the system, and especially for the Supreme Circus that gave us Citizens United. I will cast my ballot anyway because if I don’t I have acquiesced my government to the special interests and loudest voices. Even by casting my ballot I’m not doing much to oppose the corruption that has become campaigning, but at least I can say I did something to try and make this country great again.

    The ads are unfair to those of us who have voted already.
