Why do people put political signs in their yards?
I don't vote according to how many signs I see or whose yard they're in. And I certainly don't vote for the largest sign.
These signs are nothing but eye sores.
Not again, another sign, ugh. I understand. They are well- like litter on metal stakes sprouting all over town , mostly on yards, sometimes in fields. But they express the will of someones interest or honest feeling. Hopes and dreams. Free speech. First Amendment rights! Democracies are not perfect; kinda messy but the alternatives are dreadful! Thank goodness we are in a "democracy" that allows these annoying, sometimes insightful messagaes on metal legs to be seen. Only for about 8 weeks every political election cycle. One reminder, please disgard them (PROPERLY) into recycling or garbage after the outcome has been voted on. Live life again-
Winner or loser, a clean and tidy "yard" will be welcomed by all!
I agree that the signs are an eyesore but I also agree that we are lucky to have the right to put the signs up. My opinion is that if your vote can be changed by yard signs or bumper stickers, you should not be able to vote at all. I don't put up yard signs because they are ugly and because I'm not arrogant enough to think that my opinion is going to have an effect on how anyone else votes.
I agree on the yard sign thing, but that said, GET A LIFE AND MOVE ON TO BIGGER ISSUES. If you insist on having a hissy on signs, what about the yard sale signs that litter the poles on the corners of streets all over town.
I don't like them either but I am thankful that I live in a country that won't chop my hand off for doing it.
Find a real issue to keep you up at night- like the fact that 1/2 of Lincoln schools student population is homeless, Walla Walla's uncontrolled gang issue, or I don't know ANYTHING else.
