Political ads are a waste of money

September 29, 2010

The millions that politicians are spending for campaign ads is not only annoying to TV audiences but also a disgraceful waste of money that could be used to feed homeless, fix the Maryland budget shortfall, or last but not least, fund medical research into cures for cancer or some other disease.

Most of these ads do not even pertain to me. I can't vote for Andy Harris or Frank Kratovil, and I don't live in Anne Arundel County, so I can't vote for or against Question A (slots at the mall). Most intelligent people make up their own minds and are not swayed by these mud slinging and accusatory ads.
