Political commercials on the people’s airwaves

It hasn’t taken long for me to become sick of the commercials this political season. I don’t care for politicians. I think those at the national level should be hanged for treason. All of them. I hold the smaller time models in only slightly higher regard. They should be sent somewhere, China maybe, to be re-educated.

That politicians sell the people out so their rich buddies can make money in the stock market is bad enough. But coming into my house, uninvited, in the form of television commercials, and subjecting me to their bullshit? For the most part, I like commercials. It’s obvious the truly talented are working in advertising, and not writing scripts for the crap passing for entertainment these days. Political commercials, though, are insulting. Degrading. Infuriating. They suck the big one, just like the candidates themselves!

It’s high time the American people did whatever it takes to rid the airwaves of the political bullshit sold to the simple in the form of campaign commercials. They are a detriment to something, if only my fragile peace of mind. We the people own the airwaves. We need to do away with this bullshit, even if it means amending the constitution. Should hunting the politicians down and killing them prove more practical, that option should be pursued.

  1. these things drive me nuts too…but sometimes, i just have to laugh at how ridiculous they are. and then i laugh at how ridiculous the people are that fall for that garbage…it must be the same people that click on the emails promising bigger penises and breasts. there’s got to be a study about that somewhere…

    Well, I have a friend that clicked on one of those bigger weenie spams. Luckily his credit card was maxed out, or he might have…

  3. Thanks for you comment on my site. I couldm’t disagree with you more there are some excellent public servents. J.D. Hayworth, Newt Gingrich, J.C. Watts, Condeleezza Rice among many others who work hard without any hint of corruption. What is interesting is that you talk about amending the constution but you seem to have a distinct distrust of the very politicians necessary to vote for said amendment.

    Dont misunderstand i hate corruption in public office and i beieve it is a serious problem but i dont believe all politicians are corrupt.

    telli777,

    Glad you stopped by. I’m primarily concerned with politicians of the elected variety. I don’t recognize the name Hayworth, but I’ll check him out ASAP. Watts and Gingrich are out, at least today. Rice may have the decency never to get in.

    I wasn’t necessarily writing about “corruption”, at least not of the illegal variety. It’s the legal variety I detest, that being politicians enacting laws, or refusing to, at the behest of the corportations that place them and keep them in power. Term limit, one term, would solve the problem immediately. As is, the system is hopelessly flawed. The corporations and politicians are playing by the rules. We the people lose. If you have any doubt as to how or why they vote like they do, visit Open Secrets and read for a few minutes. It’s all in the public record.

    Your point about amending the constitution is well taken.

    Peace.
