I lost numerous signs to thieves and it didn't change my vote. It just made me put up another & make me work harder to get my candidate elected.

The author said your signs were stolen by domestic terrorists.

I almost spit out my coffee when I read this line!


"...but when you steal or deface the sign you are trying to force them to vote your way and are violating their freedom of speech. To me the criminal who thinks it is just a prank to steal political signs and/or deface them is no better than the terrorists of 9-11.

Now to get to more joyful things..."

I don't think that people should be stealing or vandalizing political signs, but don't you think you're being a bit extreme? I mean really - stealing a political sign vs. killing thousands of people and participating in senseless violence and devastation. Really?
Also, whether right or wrong, freedom of speech goes both ways.

Is someone trying to plug their church fundraiser in this letter, what is going on? Does the author need something for a bipolar disorder... jumping from gratitude to whatever you want to call the sign stealing part, to plugging the church fundraiser. I can't take much more of this. lol.

All the vandals and sign stealers are terrorists, by the way come to my church and have turkey and all the trimmings for a small price which is donated to charity. W.T.F?

Does anyone wonder why the day after the election was over almost everyone took down their Obama
yard signs????
If my candidate had won I would have been proud and would have kept my sign up for a least a couple weeks.

Alloway reportedly took John Weyman's campaign signs to Weyman's office when he ran against Weyman and then made a smart remark to Weyman. I guess that was terrorism too. Isn't it a violation of a federal rule or regulation when someone does something to a campaign sign?
