I Will Watch No Political Ads

I, Alden Loveshade, vow to neither watch or listen to any political ads this campaign season. I might catch bits and pieces without meaning to, but will avoid them.

I am tired of seeing ads that show that everyone who wants to represent me is both the perfect American and should be locked up in prison. If you’re tired of it to, join me.

    That’s a great idea Alden! I’m doing it too!

    Wonderful idea! I always try not to watch but will make a special effort this time.

  3. Pet Girl says:

    I hate those ads. They make you feel like you shouldn’t vote at all.

  4. Christian Andy says:

    It is sad that so many ads are negative. But it’s important to know about the candidates so you know who to vote for. We do the voting, but God chooses the winners.

  5. Dharma says:

    That’s brilliant! I will join you!

  6. Fairy Princess Yoshikyoko says:

    I blew it I saw an ad. Now I’ll have to see one by his opponent so I can balance out.

  7. Miley Spears says:

    I would totally do this if I wasn’t writing satire about the ads. 😛

  8. Tom T. Trucker says:

    So getting bits and pieces is better than seeing the whole thing? I got to question your thinking there.

    • I appreciate your point. Yes, if I were getting nothing but “bits and pieces” of information that would be a problem. But by watching ads, that is what the viewer/listener is getting. On top of that, those bits and pieces are often heavily biased, highly misleading, and can be outright lies.

      I try to look at what the candidate has actually done and how, if they’ve been in office, they’ve actually voted.
