This question is for landowners only. No poor apartment dwellers need reply.

im seeing a lot more political signage the last few weeks. Do you typically allow signs in your yard or nah?

for me, no. I feel like my political affiliations are mine alone. I do t need to broadcast to the world.

anyone else?

I did one year for a school bond initiative and a local prop to allow for the sale of liquor within city limits.

No. It's doubtful I would influence anyone with a yard sign, and I wouldn't want to make myself a target for crazy people. Besides, I rarely agree with anyone more than about 30% - 40% anyway. There's the tax and spend nanny state left, and the war mongering morality police right.

No.

And I think its even more stupid to put a political bumpersticker on your car. Esp if you supported the loser and your years old sticker is old and faded. Just lets me know you supported a loser and are too lazy to remove the evidence of it. But it would be funny AF is someone collected the losers for each presidential race and slapped those on their car. Like their support was the kiss of death.

No way. Not anymore.
I did maybe 20 years ago but I was in Texas and it was for Bush, so friendly territory.
Never ever on my car,

Anymore it is only when I support a candidate who knows me personally.

No. I have no idea on the political affiliation of my neighbors and I talk to most of them frequently.

I don’t want to know their politics and I really don’t care.

No. A yard sign would be a giant waste of time. No one’s mind is changed by a yard sign. Just like political discussion on HROT would change no one‘s mind.
Thank God we keep political and religious discussion cordial and at a minimum on this site.

No.

And big LOL at most of these replies. Looking at who’s responded I’m guessing at minimum half of these posters do.

Yes. I live at the intersection of 2 paved roads out in the country with hundreds of vehicles going by daily.

I may allow a sign for Reynolds, Miller-Meeks, State Senator Koelker and a couple friends who are county supervisors.

Chuck's too old. Franken is a left of Cali Socialist who thinks he's an Optometrist.

Only when it's someone we know. For instance when my sil ran for the school board or the guy I worked with ran for mayor.
