#TRUTHCAMPAIGN AD

BACKGROUND:
These days the political ADs fuel the political games and rhetoric.
Rhetoric has become this dramatized and quite ugly persuasive
style that has 1) spur strong feelings against the other candidates
2) rally followers for the candidates political cry 3) Polarize the
Nation 4) demonize the opposer
The ADS themselves are constructed with such dramatic flair that
some critics have come up with the template design to mock the
current campaign advertisements. In our #TRUTHCAMPAIGN ad
portion of our Election, we are going to IMPROVE THIS.
We are going to DISRUPT this and present a new version of
campaign ads.

Why is our trade deficit a

problem? Because the deficit income people
subtracts from U.S. GDP and
hurts the lower middle class.
By outsourcing jobs, it has
relegated millions of U.S.
workersespecially the lowskilled onesto the
underemployment rolls. As

the country imports products

relegates many more to
poverty (45 million
Americans), and to food
stamps (46 million

poverty (another 15 million
Americans). Welcome to the
land of the American Dream.

Tax Plans

Is it fair that the wealth


of the top 1/10 of 1%
has gone up since the
past decade? While they
get tax cuts via capital
gains.

The top 1% took heavy hits


Partially true
from the dot-com crash and
the Great Recession but
recovered fairly quickly:
Saezs preliminary estimates
for 2012 (which will be
updated next month) have
that group receiving nearly
22.5% of all pretax income,
while the bottom 90%s share
is below 50% for the first
time ever (49.6%, to be
precise).

Jobs

move 100 percent


renewable energy by
2030, and still ensure
unemployed workers
from fossil fuel jobs and
subject them to full
income and benefits
with the transition to
alternative work

New research has shown that


it is possible and affordable
for the world to achieve 100
percent renewable energy by
2030, if there is the political
will to strive for this goal. It
won't be a simple task to
transition to 100 percent
renewables in 14 years, but it
is not a challenge outside of
our technological grasp; it
solely remains outside the
realm of the mainstream
political imagination.
Implementing that
technology requires
overcoming obstacles in
planning and politics, but
doing so could result in a 30
percent decrease in global
power demand, say Stanford
civil and environmental
engineering Professor Mark
Z. Jacobson and University
of California-Davis
researcher Mark Delucchi.

Mostly true

Government
Spending

Jill will establish


Medicare For All
which will save the
government $400 billion
annually

Analysts generally panned


Sanders's health-care
proposal, saying it would
force the government to
borrow trillions of dollars to
cover Americans' medical
expenses. Similar singlepayer systems in other
countries typically place
restrictions on the treatments
and services that are covered
to keep costs in check, which
Sanders's plan did not.

False
