most of the political ads don't even touch on the issues. it's ridiculous that you have to search for how some politicians feel about some issues. it's all just mudslinging
What's truly astonishing is that there is no law regarding the honesty of political ads. They aren't required to be honest. They could literally run ads saying something along the lines that there is evidence that their opponent is a baby killer and could get away with it. We have truth in advertising laws for products and services but not for politicians.
I hate political commercials because all they are is "This person does this...you should vote for me" Without ever saying what 'me' would do for 'us'? WTH? Are they campaigning on what we don't
I don't care for political signage either, they tell you nothing about the candidate, just that they're out there. We have enough crap distracting drivers from driving
without trying to read a sign that doesn't tell you anything. I see them as a legal form of vandalism...especially since they're left up so long after
I remember when we only got Canadian TV and we were seeing political ads for their presidential election. They were so nice in comparison to the US ads.
