Dear Candidate for (Fill in the Blank):
I hate your automated phone calls.
I am not influenced by your friend, party associate, or name-in-the-headlines endorsement of your candidacy.
I decided quite awhile ago whom I would vote for, from our state governor to our local school board representative.
Nonetheless, in the past two weeks, our family has received 52+/- robo calls for various political candidates.
We're on the "do not call" list, but evidently that doesn't prevent this constant bombardment by office wannabes.
For anyone else, this would be a form of cyber-stalking.
But it's political season. So you are allowed to interrupt our homework time, dinner hour, and bedtime rituals with your incessant, loud, insistent pleas to VOTE FOR fill in the blank.
Please go away.
