So I read that experts estimate $10 billion will be spent on campaign advertisements in the U.S. presidential election this year.

Most of it, I feel sure, will be spent on television commercials consisting of insults, lies and half-truths about the “other side.” It’s been proven that those are the kinds of ads that deliver results.

Woe to those who watch television and live in purple states.

I keep thinking about that mind-boggling number.

Ten. Billion. Dollars.

Think of how much good could be done with that amount of money.
