Politicians and the DO NOT CALL LIST

By
Real Estate Agent with Coral Shores Realty

I just got home and checked the answering machine like I always do and we had "9" calls today from political groups.   Romney called twice, Ruddy called twice, Huckabee called once, McCain called once.   I also had people call and ask me to vote "for" Amendment 1 and "against" Amendment 1.  My machine was full and my home phone is on the Do Not Call List.  (Guess you figured out that I'm a registered republican).

 

What bugs me is, if I made calls like this I would be subject to $11,000 fine each.  Isn't funny that the guys who write the rules don't include themselves?

 

Let me know what you think!!

P.S. Vote yes on "1"

Hi Cary,

Don't you just love it--you got a call from someone that may be the President of the United States!  LOL, seriously, I just delete them--even the ones that are playing while I answer the telephone.  Can't see how they help get votes.

The law excludes charities, phone surveyors, and of course "political organizations".  The politians seem to exclude themselves from all laws, including sign ordinances. 

It kills me, I can't put up an open house directional sign for one hour, however come election time there are political signs on every and between every corner.

 I agree.  But, what can we do.  They will never put campaigning on the Do Not Call List.

Thanks for your comments. Seems we're all on the same page... do as I say not as I do... Jo Ann, you really kill me with the signs... I lost 4 on Sunday and the election signs at the same intersection were still standing...

Thanks again,
