Is anyone else tired of this election season? If you watch television at any time during the day, you can’t avoid the latest attack ads designed to embarrass and humiliate a candidate. Is this necessary?
I did a little unscientific research and uncovered a shocking statistic. One article I found suggests ad spending of over FIVE BILLION DOLLARS. A large percentage of this spend no doubt is on attack or negative ads.
I think it would be a rational proposal to ban attack ads in campaigns. That should take the ad spend down, and maybe that money could be used for something productive. Anyone have ideas on how we could invest that money?
