Wow, are your commericals ever nasty! We see them of course because we get US feeds from the satellite, and so we see the mudslinging going on . It is almost comical, and I noticed in the last election that we had, there was a little mudslinging going on there

I am just happy it is over with

I dont even Vote which makes it more irritating to see these mudslinging ads constantly on TV radio and billboards!!

Im just about sick of it and for this very reason is why i dont vote. I think politicians are fake, and I can see right through them as if they are transparent.

They say one thing, then do another once their in office.

Amen to that. I can't agree more. Lets base it on their actual achievments and not the twisted version of the other party'* doings.

I know, only in a perfect world would such things happen. We all have more of a chance of living happily ever after than politicians not bashing one another.

i dont care if the antichrist ran at this point, if he ran a campaign and didnt sling at his opponents, id probably vote for him.

im sick of it. and heres the kicker: it doesnt matter. were all sick of it but it doesnt matter. and do you know why it doesnt matter? because theres too many of them. cut one down and two more replace him.

what more, ive called back on the number provided on two of the answering machine messages. by law, theyre required to let us request not to be called. called them back, got a machine and no information at all about how to contact them. just trash about so-and-so.

Either I was exposed to it more this year (dunno, been very busy) or It'* MUCH worse then I remember. But I did stick with the smoking ban that'* up for referendum, and the bill that allows all new car tax to be spend on road work.

How can they be allowed to call mobile phones which do not have free incoming minutes like a land line? Can I send each part a bill of my used up minutes at the end of the election season?

P.*. is it an election the same way it'* deer season now? Can we shoot a lot of them because they're a local pest?
