The reason we need the seat belts and had better be ready is that when and if all this commentary and bantering back and forth regarding the presidential candidates and the election is over, there will be a vacuum as large as the largest black hole in the universe. When all the political advertisements are dropped from being aired. It might create a vacuum so large and forceful that it implodes the whole of the western hemisphere into the eastern hemisphere.
My fear is that if we are not secured properly when this happens, we’ll be sucked into our big screen televisions and end up along with all the advertising where ever it ends up when it is all said and done.
I cannot even begin to fully grasp the total amount of money that has already been spent on political propaganda on the part of both parties. We could probably pay off a good portion of the national debt with those funds.
Not only can’t I believe the amount being spent, but I can’t believe the number of people and businesses donating to the various campaigns either. All those donations and the amounts tell me is that the President and his or her entourage must really carry a lot of clout in various circles of influence that would warrant the giving of that much money for a political campaign fund to try to see to it that a political candidate’s campaign is successful.
I think the amount of time that has been spent campaigning coupled with the amount of money spent is absolutely ludicrous. We, as a people, should demand change in this area especially. The candidates are all harping for change, well; here is a place that really needs big-time change. I am waiting for the day when all these ads are finally turned off for good. Each party is forecasting its eventual outcome, but the American public has been so bombarded with all the campaigning, that it will cause a lowering of voting as a result of people being so turned off to the whole process.
I’m sure there are some advertising companies that would say I’m all wet with my idea as they struggle to deposit their earnings from all their advertising efforts for the various candidates, but that still doesn’t make it necessary for all of the public relations expenditures.
Mark my words; we had all better be ready for the end is near. Have you got your seat belts yet? Time’s awastin’.
