So how many political phones calls did you get?
« on: November 01, 2004, 10:01:50 AM »
Since early last week the phone at home has been ringing off the hook with political phone calls.

Yesterday (Sunday) I counted over 10 calls to my home.

Why can't political phone calls be part of the "Do Not Call" list? 

I can handle a call or two, but several calls each day is intrusive. Its enough to turn people away from voting all together.

I did not get a single political phone call.  I also barely saw a television commercial from either candidate. NJ was ignored by both candidates, and that was a terrible disservice to all of us here.

Freedom of political speech is the most important of all Freedom of speech issues, and I cringe at the suggestion by anyone that it should be limited in any fashion, including DO NOT CALL lists. I'm more interested in limited Freedom of Commercial Speech (i.e. billboards).  If people don't want calls from candidates, then they should move to some private island somewhere and not have a phone.
