    I can't take 55 more days of these ads. They're on all the time. Ugh.

    I've tapered off local television. It's way too toxic. I watch movies, documentary and history type channels.

    When I follow the news it is mostly off the internet and this forum. Following an alternate reality is not on my agenda.

    I just turn on an old sitcom while I'm making dinner and am just barraged with these ads. They're sure spending a lot of someone's money trying to convince me a brown person will kill me if I vote for a Democrat.

    Racism is alive and well in the Republican party.

    I was a huge Dean Heller fan then he voted for Devos and now his ads against Rosen are so full of lies I’ve lost all respect for him.

    I’ve never voted all D or all R but this election I think it’s going to be Democrat across the board.

    Well, the implication that she believes in child prostitution will convince enough people with their heads in the sand not to vote for her.

    It's crazy how much can be taken out of context today.

    I know this will never happen, but I sure do wish candidates would tell me what they stood for rather than tear others down. And, yes, I realize that McSally's campaign did not create this ad, but still.

    The Arizona GOP is an embarrassment to themselves and our state.

    These ads appeal to the lowest fears and prejudices in our society.

    Is the average Arizonan this naive and gullible?

    It only took 24 years before Maricopa county figured out Joseph Arpaio wasn't necessarily the best option for Sheriff. So, we've got potential. :blush:

    There are many across the country who are that naive and just plain uneducated. It is so easy to just see a meme on facebook and share away, even if it makes no sense or is entirely untrue.

    I have an aunt in Florida who does this all the time. She sits home, is in her 70s and just shares crap that drives me nuts. "We remember. Share if you think Obama should be in prison." Um, for what? Hello? What are you talking about?

    Chris Sanders gets into it all the time with her. It used to tick me off, but now it's kind of comical. I mean, really, someone needs to educate people, right?
