The Elections Can't Come Soon Enough For Me

I can't remember ever being so SICK of political commercials, phone calls, junk mail and then turning on CNN to hear even more dirt flying around in all the other states.  I thought for a while that it was just in my state.  No....seems it is in many states.  I wish each candidate would tell us what their experience and accomplishments are instead of whatever crap they can dig up on their opponent.  Grow up you idiots!  The world is in a mess...and we are much more interested in what you can do to help get us back on track.  When we hear you tattling about all the sins against your opponent and your opponent dishing it right back....we don't want to vote for either one of you! 
My little vent for the day....

At any rate, I agree!!! We are having the same "school yard" problems here, and recorded phone stuff going on for elections... Enough already!!!

Got to boogie! Have a great day.

I've totally given up. As far as I can tell, even if I get the person I want into office they're unable (or unwilling) to do anything to speak of. Oh, I'll vote - but I just do party lines because I don't really think looking at this person or that person means a thing anymore.

ditto ditto ditto to that! We have Meg Whitman and some other gufus..I can't remember....oh yeah, Jerry Brown running for govenor..I can't stand either one of them. Most of them are crooks anyway, always having special interests and reeling in the dough.

I have one thing to say: DVR. I record everything I want to watch and then fast forward through the ads.

I listen to no news on the radio--except traffic on the eights.

I'm effectively editing all of the morons--from whatever political ideology they espouse--from my life. Their ad dollars are lost on me.

Try it. It's liberating.

HERE HERE!!! I don't even care ALL that much on their experience... Just tell me how you're going to vote on issues and don't promise to END illegal immigration or lower my taxes you idiot!!!
Thanks Brenda!

I agree with you, grow up fellows and ladies ( well for lack of a better word). LOL

We have had our phone ring more these past couple of weeks, but I have caller ID, and I don't answer it if I don't know the number, most of the time, they won't leave a message, apparently their machines aren't set up to respond to an answering machine, which is fine with me.

Thankfully in the UK we don't get as much political junk as you seem to. Each party is limited to the time they can have on telly and each candidate is limited to the amount of money they can spend. I have never had a phone call don't know if they're allowed to. I've noticed a lot of billboard adverts that we never used to get. We still get sick of the political programmes though and it's never off the news.

Like you I just wish they'd focus on the issues instead of getting at their opponents. Leave the media to do that, they're very good at it!
