Why I Support (Most) Political Advertising
Political candidates have to pay for their advertising. In so doing, they subsidize stuff I like to do--YouTube, Facebook, various news outlets, radio stations, etc. I am directly benefiting from their appeals, so they can do that all they want.
However, direct mail is a wasteful, inconvenient pile of pure awfulness. I should e-mail any candidate that mails me something and tell them that I don't support tree murderers who use direct mail.
