Mud slinging ads

The Republican primary season has been underway for some time now, and it's really been getting nasty. I have a message for the candidates still in the race, and all their supporters (SuperPACs, this means you, too!): Stop the mudslinging! As I've mentioned, I live in Florida. Our state has been inundated with negative ads. I listen to talk radio during the day and I hear back to back negative ads ad nauseam.

Don't tell me why your opponent is a bad guy. Tell me why you're the right guy for the job. What do you see as the answer for the stalled economy? How will you get a dysfunctional Congress to work? What should be done about Iran? There's so much I want to hear from you. I want to vote for someone, not against someone.

I know there's a school of thought that negative ads work. And I'm sure the Democrats are going to throw every bit of mud they can find at the Republican candidate. Please quit giving them ammunition.
