    Re: Endorsements

    Personally, if an entertainer in whatever field publicly endorses a candidate that either I don't like or don't agree with, politically, I'm more inclined not to support that entertainer than I am to change my political views. "Celebrities" who believe their views are important enough to share nauseate me.

    Now, if a celebrity wishes to endorse a charitable cause, I'm all for that.

    Re: Endorsements

    Nope, not at all. I pay no attention to advertising, it doesn't affect me in any way, whether you're talking about shopping or politics or anything else. I completely filter it all out and don't remember any of it. Advertisers probably hate me.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Re: Endorsements

    It depends on who is doing the endorsement and what they are endorsing. If, while endorsing an issue I haven't been focusing much of my time on, the person lays out a reasonable argument, I will likely look further into the argument. While endorsements rarely change my mind on how I would like to vote (can't register until after my next birthday), depending on who it is, they can easily make me more interested in looking further into the issue.
