With elections coming up the phone calls are beginning to get very annoying. I do not vote for people who bother me, so I choose, instead, to block all political calls including surveys etc. It is none of your business who I voted for or when I voted or even if I voted and I will not discuss candidates or issues with anyone - especially on the phone.
I believe political calls should fall into the category of telemarketing scam calls and should not be allowed. I also throw away all political ads that come in the mail without looking at them. I believe politicians waste so much money that most do not deserve to be elected. Most voters are perfectly capable of reading the voters pamphlet and making decisions according to their own conscious without being bombarded with trash that is sent to try to sway their decisions.
After 50 years of voting, I am ashamed to say there are less and less reasons to vote at all. I will still vote, but it really would be nice if there were a few candidates worth the trouble of a check mark.
