If it weren't for that damned First Amendment, I would want all political attack ads to be illegal. It's sickening how politicians win elections by focusing 90% on their enemies' flaws and 10% on their own values and goals. Honestly, I almost feel like if you have to insult someone else to promote yourself, you are too immature for public office. I only understand the position because it seems that our voting society requires candidates to attack each other like some giant political gladiatorial arena.

I agree. If I am going to elect someone, it will be based on their own merits, not on how "bad" the other person is.

I know what you mean. The problem with attack ads is it means that the candidate with more money will win, because they can pay for more ads. Soooo yeah, fuck this voting system.

The stupid thing is the spend 100's of MILLIONS of dollars and if you look at the statistics- all that money may only influence a fraction of a percentage point of the population to vote for you. Obviously you want your name to be known, but when it gets to the point of spending 50 million or so more, it doesn't even give you as big an advantage as you may think. You can look this up, usually the candidate's initial appeal has a much much bigger factor in weather they win.

It's been like that since when John Adams was running for President. Plus, no one is going to take the time to listen to issues. it's all about who did what to whose mother.
