Now bumper stickers can be useful. I would hope that one could get a sense of popular support 's for a candidate by seeing how many stickers you see on the roads, but with the dearth of these stickers, you really can't and you wonder what is wrong with you for wearing your own heart on your sleeve. Furthermore, bumper stickers have been maligned: if it says something too short and trite, it is said to "make a bad bumper sticker." It makes you wonder what is a good bumper sticker.
I for one think that bumper stickers are good, that we should be willing to express ourselves and tell the world what we stand for. We talk so much about freedom of speech and expression but we hide behind a wall of anonymity. We do not seek self expression but privacy. This can only lead to a diminution of democracy.People are willing to contribute to campaigns The Supreme Court says money is speech, but the people who give the most money want to remain anonymous. Does that make any sense at all? Let's all put our mouths where our money is and revive the use of bumper sticker.
