I have a love-hate relationship with them.
Driving down the road and seeing a sticker that pithily states my beliefs raises my spirits and makes me laugh.
But seeing a series of stickers making snarky comments misrepresenting something I agree with makes my blood pressure go up.
I kind of want people to put the kibosh on bumper stickers. What would our world look like if people stopped throwing out unanswerable one-liners as they barreled by at 70 miles an hour? Do you think we might have less road rage? Or do you think we’d be more able to separate assholes from the political positions they espouse if the car with the “Hope” sticker (or the “Sorry Yet?”) hadn’t just cut us off in traffic?
Maybe taking the time to debate our beliefs and politics with each other would be better for our nation than trying to piss each other off with passive-aggressive and often misleading words plastered on our cars.
