What gets to me more than anything with these election ads, is these people are allowed to be liars when talking about who they are running against, and that should be illegal. It's against the law for the average person to lie about another when it causes them harm, but it's OK for politicians to tell ball face lies about the other, and that is how we usually elect the wrong people for public office that serves the taxpayer. There should be a law about twisting the truth to obtain the upper hand over the person/persons running for the same public office. If they use public TV to twist the truth about the others, how are we supposed to elect the best person to serve us in public office when it's OK for them to lie about, and twist the truth about each other!!!

Simple fix is Law that states no Candidate for any office can discuss his opponent; he can only talk about himself and his ideas. Would be short ads and not very many tying up the airways.

Agree, but so many of these ads are not put out by either

Money = Speech. For what it is worth....

However, while I dislike them and negative adds don't work on my preferences (because what negative add would attack the Lib party... we are like a platypus, we don't do much)

Still, it is freedom of speech in its purest form. Don't want to step on that for any reason.


I strongly believe

That if a candidate led off their campaign by announcing they would do everything they could to convince me why I should vote for them and pledge to not mention the other candidate, they would have my vote. Negative campaigns and a two party system that are backed by these super pacs are absolutely killing America.

to announce my candidacy for Dictator of the planet Mongo. My opponent, Ming the Merciless, has been known to kick puppies, pinch babies and order pineapple on pizza.


He crossed the line with the pineapple***

of context at best. The Jamie Harrison commercials where he is sucking up to Pelosi and Hillary are just mind-blowing.

I agree but this has to grow to the entire platforms. The social media Twitnet, FB, sports forums, Instaslam, etc, extra etc, we must shut off any social media that includes Politics. There is no equality in the distribution of information!!! Trump wants social media throttled towards agendas and I wish it happened a month ago! Its all media driven.

Lets get our lives back, lets protect the top 20% of needy for disease, and let the other 80% live their lives. Most 70+ yr olds are retired and dont need to get in crowds. Then once we have vaccines then we move forward!


Ads? Yes. Political Crap? No

But I’ll be happy to lose all this politics crap too!

If you like Star Wars, and I’m talking about the original trilogy, you should watch the Mandalorian. It strikes the right balance between action, drama, and comic relief without being Soapy or silly.


Ha! Can’t wait!

Just imagine....

... if all the candidates helped pay off the debt of an elderly person, or the medical bills of a child with leukemia, or the funeral expenses of a fireman killed on the job.

Instead, they spend millions, and millions, and MILLIONS of dollars trashing their opponent and driving us (the voters) bonkers by clogging up our TVs, radios, and computers with this garbage.

.... and these are the best we have to represent us?

Wow.

You are probably watching ads paid by foreign governments. Surely the Founders intended this.
