    I prefer allowing all political ads than banning all political ads.

            I would suggest completly banning all political advertisement in ANY media at all. Nothing in radio, TV or newspaper... that will solve the problem.

              Political Ads should be banned completely from the Internet. Too many idiots are allowed to vote and are easily brainwashed.

                As much as I dislike trump, these past three years I'm starting to dislike Colbert just as much. With the frequent lengthy vacations, the "reverse talkshow guests" where colbert is asked all the questions, gets all the attention, and gets to talk about himself, I'm quickly losing interest. Just being honest here, when trump is finally, FINALLY out of office I think Colbert's show will quickly start going downhill. I'd much prefer to see craig ferguson in his spot. He is much more entertaining

                  Facebook's job isn't to be the thought police. Unless Sean Hannity and Rush Limbaugh have to explain their conspiracy propaganda to Congress, Facebook still has a right to free speech

                          for all of you who think this is a good move by twitter, you don't know how badly this will impact progressive candidates who don't have voices in the MSM, and will have one less platform to show their true colors on.

                                I have not seen political ads in my FB newsfeed. How can anyone help it if users actually make their own memes, write their own stories or share political pages? Facebook has done a great job cleaning up all forms of advertising. I only see what I want to see. But, since I don't care for the drama or the disappointment of people I have known, turned Trumpster, I've reduced my time signed in on FB. At least they have tried to keep FB running fairly! . And it is great that Twitter has finally joined the cause. But, now, it is time for YouTube to clean up their act. I don't see advertisements on issues that Trump and the government are working toward, I see self indulgent polls and approval questions concerning Trump and his long line of antics! I could do without THAT drama! I think America has been punished enough!!

                                    I wonder what they edited out about marky mark. It was so shocking to hear "facebook founder - mark zuckerberg." Dont censor the jokes, especially when it's that obvious.

From what I've seen, the vast majority of his campaign seems to be volunteer or Yang Gang driven. He's kinda like a crowd funded candidate. Say what you will this crazy long cycle is allowing for a never before seen type of race. I think the same will apply for Donald Trump, he already has a twitter army as well.

He has every bit of info on future Presidential Candidates, and will sell that information to the highest bidder world wide. Do yourself a favor, ween yourself off Facebook cred, and invest in something that makes a difference in your community. Self promotion is desperation of a life sans purpose.
