NH is a state where politics is an industry. If it wasn’t for the ‘mute’ button, the TV would have been turned off until after November.
In January 2012, Forbes magazine ran an article estimating there would be approximately $4.9B spent on ads in 2012. This was in comparison to a record $2.7B spent in the 2007-2008 election period which surpassed all previous records.
Wow – all that money spent on ads, and I turn the volume off.
If they asked my opinion about what to do with almost $5B, I’d say what about giving it to Type 1 Diabetes Medical Research, Feeding America, Wounded Warrior Project, Salvation Army, Red Cross, or paying down some of the national debt.
On the first Tuesday in November, vote like your future and the future of your family depends upon the results of the election because it does.
There – I’ve had my say until election day.
Now back to grandchildren, gardening, traveling, camping and other pursuits I have ‘some’ control over.
