2. I've been barraged with those Epoch Times ads!!! Soooo annoying and probably doing a lot of

damage with "the base"

I rec'd your post. If you rec your own post (which you can), that will bring it to 5 and put it on the "Greatest Threads" page

4. I find them depressing

Knowing full well that there’s a segment of the population that buys that epoch times whole cloth, and then starts parroting it back.

And the lies they spout in that ad are so obviously false, that you wonder if the brain of the person who believes that crap is capable of autonomous function?

3. Google owns YouTube

I guess their 'Don't be Evil' slogan is crap.

7. True, but the republican ads are nonstop everytime you want to play a youtube clip

They are literally carpeting the place with their propaganda. Dems don't even come close with this tactic.

8. Unfortunately they have a hundred times the money we do.

Plus Putin WANTS them to win. The more weakened we are (and he knows Republicans weaken us), the less resistance he has to expanding Russian influence in places with warm water ports and cheap raw materials the Chinese haven't yet grabbed for themselves. A weakened and dumbed-down America won't even put up token resistance, which is what he was probably planning all along.
