Too many political signs?

I mentioned in another thread that my husband recently retired from a long-time job. It was in journalism. I, too, am a former journalist.  So for all our lives we have been unable to have political signs in our yard or sign petitions, etc.  For ethical reasons.... journalists must remain neutral in public.  
But now that he's no longer a journalist..... oooooooooboy!  I'm putting up all kinda signs in my yard! So fun and so liberating!

    Plz, don't take offense, but I hate all the signs around town & all the ads on tv.  

    From Michael Berg:

    Every person has a unique connection to the Creator that can never be extinguished, and every person has a great soul that can manifest important things in our world. To make a person feel less than they are because of something inside themselves, be it faith, race, or sexual orientation, is the greatest sin of all."

    I'm afraid I'm with Lotsa on this one. they drive me mad! We have local council elections coming up and the amount of signage is ridiculous. 
    I think things are different here though - no-one puts up signs in their yards.

    I pull them up if they are in my vicinity if they don't have a permit. Politicians are the only ones who seem to believe they can skirt the rules because its election time. Yes, it's a losing battle.

    I believe Texas and the United States are in such dire straits that I will put up with the clutter of signage and political ads if it helps effect change.

    Yay for you @Gretchen!  Being super involved in politics for many decades (and having designed many signs over the years), thanks for putting up signs in support of your candidates!
