Could it be us that makes Citizens United effective?

I think all that dark money is spent on TV ads. I know that when I see a repuke ad it never convinces me to vote for the repuke. I don't think it has much effect on an independent who is left leaning either.
The thing the ads do is get out the repuke vote.
So to counter the effect of the ads or the dark money we have to see the ad and decide to vote against it or cancell out a repuke vote generated by the ad.
We out number them. We could overcome the dark money by voting against it.
Forget about needing something to vote for, but vote against something. It would have a better outcome then not voting.
