Already sick of them on TV!

You know what... I feel strongly about a lot of the political issues in our country but you know what I feel even more strongly about? How disruptive those political ads are on television! It's not JUST that they're airing, no, that's fine, it's their content. Negative, negative, negative. Buzz kill! It's like you're watching a great episode of Modern Family or whatever you like, commercials come on and of course first thing is a political ad. Is it a message of inspiration, hope, etc? No way. It's always taking a dump on the competition. And it's really sad to me that crapping all over the other candidate is how we campaign in this country. Instead of focusing on the great things we might do, we instill fear in people about the other guy. Boo. Not sayin' we should wipe them from the media... heck no! Part of running a campaign is getting the message out but this year in particular, it just feels like every single message is all about instilling fear. Maybe that's how it has always been and I'm just starting to pay closer attention but meh. Makes me sad. Do you feel the same way?
