Recycle Your Politicians

There seem to be no green politicians round here. It’s pissing me off and driving me nuts. This is only two days’ worth, and there are duplicates and triplicates in the pile:

A couple people I’ll be voting for are in there. A couple people I’ve never even heard of. A few others I wish would disappear. Regardless, they’re all pissing me off.

Listen up, politicians:

I do my own political research. I read and listen to news, look you up online on your site and others, evaluate what you have to say against your track record. I do not need a flyer or two from you EVERY DAMN DAY.

You can talk all you want about how green you are and how you care about the environment, but your countless flyers are going out to others who are perhaps not like me: they won’t recycle them, they’ll just throw them away. I know people like this, and they don’t care about recycling. Half of them don’t even vote, and your polluting flyers are not going to change that. Your flyers aren’t going to change my mind, either — unless, of course, you send me so many that I decide not to vote for you because of your negative impact on the environment. And you can talk about how you’re providing jobs for Americans through the design, printing, and distribution of your flyers, but get this: if there is no America left after it’s been buried under trash, you personally contributed to that.

Damn, I’m pissed off.

A few weeks back I sent e-mails/sitemails to every politician and party that started filling up my mail box with this crap, telling them to stop. Never heard back, of course, and the pollution just keeps rolling in.
