I believe providing the information was necessary. People don't get informed any other way because they won't take the time to do their homework and find out exactly what their candidate's voting record is, etc. So, an ad telling them these facts is helpful. But, the way they were done was attacking, rather than educating. I wasn't too crazy about that, either.
People don't seem to listen to ads explaining RP's positive positions when they have their mind set on "he is unelectable and my candidate is great." But if they are educated on the real issues their candidate is not great at, I think it helps.
However, we would have to spend a lot more TV time on education to override the major brainwashing they get the rest of the time.
The lip of truth shall be established forever: but a lying tongue is but for a moment...Lying lips are abomination to the LORD: but they that deal truly are His delight. Prov 12:19,22
