  1. I’m a conservative voter. So, I only watch political ads that promote truthful, proven accomplishments a presidential candidate has done FOR the my COUNTRY and for my fellow tax-payers use of our tax money.

    Our current president is an UNPAID Commander-in-Chief. We should leave private citizens alone with their hard-earned money on how they want to use their money– such as in support of their candidate.

    Google’s bias is a bad move. Nevertheless, public campaigns and packful well-attended rallies can’t be stopped. Good riddance, Google!

    DuckDuckGo is my search engine. 🙂

  2. WOW! That’s a fantastic cost-saving! I mean for the people who are running for political office. I always thought political ads were a waste of money. I never really listened to them or rather never attached much weight to them.

    But now … my question is … since the money doesn’t need to be spent on advertisements, what are the politicians going to do with all that extra money? Feed the poor? Improve educational institutions? Set up a charity foundation similar to the Ronald McDonald House? Give it back to the donors? Put it in their bank accounts? The money has got to go somewhere.
