I'm afraid I agree. I have been flooded with political phone calls.
Common sense says politicians should voluntarily honor the Do Not Call
List, but they don't.

What are the risks? A strongly pro-life person isn't going to go vote
for Hillary to punish a politicians for an unsolicited phone call.

I'm being very principled about this. I will not vote for Rick Perry
for Texas governor. He's blown it. I asked to me removed from his
list and never was. Let's hope the other three candidates do not

BTW, I read a recent article that predicted the Democratic candidate
would finish FOURTH in the Texas gubernatorial race behind the current
Republican governor and the two independent candidates. I don't know
if that's funny or sad.
