    Lies. That's all they're full of. Lies, lies and guess what? More lies. They don't seem to stop doing that and usually it's all polititions do. Lie to get votes. How sad.

    I hate them, especially this year.  I am over all of the banter and just want to move on.  I can not stand the slander and the constant need to cut another person down with lies and deceit.

    Wishing For Something Better.

    Argh!  They always seem so negative.  We don't do ads of 'here's what I've done, and how I will be a better choice".  We do, here's why the other person stinks.  Let's see what dirt we can dig up on them and air it.  OR here are my promises that I...

    Negative Ads

    This is the time of year when the smear campaigns are out in full force. Some swarmy voiced man telling us on the television sordid tales of politicians running for office like the town gossip spewing venom. Back and forth it goes and the lines get so muddled over who is a good...

    I get so I don't even really see them, my eyes gloss over.  They just seem to be slamming the other guy, rather than talk about themselves.  If they are talking about themselves, they're so sugar coated that it sounds unbelievable.

    They're boring and biased.  Not that articles aren't but I'd rather seek out information knowing what the source is.

    Apart From Being a Lie..

    They're dangerous! They always put them onto tress where I live. And if there are trees next to the street you can't see any pedestrians or cyclists, so it's dangerous for them, because cars can't see them coming!

    They Get On My Damn Nerves!!!

    All it is is mud-slinging.  Instead of talking about their positive things, they would rather dig up dirt on their competitors.  Well, guess what?  Everyone has things in their past and don't want it brought up, I don't think that should use that to win votes.

    I especially hate attack ads.

    They don't increase my hate for who ever they are attacking, they increase my hate for who ever put that crap on tv.

    They are more revolved around spreading negative messages and lies about other political parties rather than focusing on their own agenda and ideologies. When someone focuses on negativity as their message of others, that is often to detract that they have nothing of value about...

    They are so fake... I don't trust politicians. What candidates promise to do when they are running for office should be uheld as a contract. If they break the contract, they ought to be impeached.
