Ban political mailers. I must have been sent the better part of 100 of those in the last 30 days.
I live in VA and voted in the Republican primary and get tons of them as well, that and they some how got my cell phone number. GEERRR
Just another reason I'm voting Gary Johnson to stick it to the idiots running the republican party right now. Hopefully they will be kicked out and better minds installed.
I'd just be happy to add them the the do not call list.
And the USPS needs the $$.
They should be charged full price instead of bulk mail rates as it would help the USPS.
I agree, what a waste. I throw them into the recycling without even looking.
Need to break a few forests to make a stimulus. Those trees being turned into mailers created jobs.
i do wonder how much election spending contributed to GDP growth over the last couple months
GDP is what, $15 trillion? and I think the total spending of the campaigns was $2 billion, so that's 0.013%. Add in the superpacs, maybe it gets to 0.03%?
collect them and stick em all in your neighbors mail box.
With every political mailer you get, if there is an envelope included, tear up their ad and mail it back to them at their expense. They'll get the message soon. Besides, it's fun to screw with them.
I throw away easily 99% of the mail i get. Mail is a dying breed (outside of packages)
They should ban political TV ads too. By the time election day rolls around I wish they were all dead, democrats and republicans alike.
Yes, they need to ban these idiotic ads and letters
So, how many people have you gotten to sign? :sneaky:
I've been annoyed with all the political flyers I've received in the mail lately too, not to mention there are three registered voters in my household so it ends up being 3x whatever flyer happens to be sent.
I get an importand piece from democrats telling me how to vote.
How are they supposed to reach the independent, undecided voters in swing states?
The post office needs the money. I don't think that such mailings should be restricted to some arbitrary date before the election. I would not be opposed to charging an extra fee for political/advertisements to support local paper recycling routes though.
