    I am tired of them also. I'm glad election day is tommorow and we'll get a break for awhile. What did yall think of that one Herman Walker did on so much money being put in a race?

    I'm making it a point to vote AGAINST anyone making those phone calls.

    I would seriously hope nobody bases a vote on a recorded mudslinging message. There are other ways to run a race, even one that the slinger previously lost.

    I'm with you Shelly; even if I'm planning on voting for a particular politician, if they waste my time with a phone call, they're off my list!

    Please, please base your very important vote on something other than a phone call, folks. Much is at stake. One thing all the campaign managers and advisors emphasize is that any candidate MUST go door to door and also make those phone calls. In fact, in local races they maintain that the phone calls are the most important thing. I know it is a hassle. But vote for the candidate, not for the ring!

    I just turn my voice mail on; the phone ringer off; and know that anyone I want to talk with has my mobile phone number! and even it has caller ID.

    I disagree. The best candidate shouldn't have to be making a sales pitch via phone calls. The phone calls I've received are nothing more than putting down the other candidate(s) and begging for my vote. I get turned off by candidates who put down the rest in order to build themselves up. I read up on my candidates; don't need them disturbing my dinner or taking me away from my family so I can listen to their phone spiel!
