#TRUTH CAMPAIGN 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 #TRUTH CAMPAIGN 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.

topics and reveals the Validity of the topics behind the smoke screen of political
rhetoric.
OUR #TRUTH CAMPAIGN will Present the VALIDITY of the Candidates Statements

Verdict

Abortion

Hilary also has the same stance


as Gary Johnson. She has stated
multiple times that she is
pro-choice and supports Planned
Parenthood

What I found with this factcheck is that


most of what the candidates have said
is in fact true. Hillary has said that she
is in support of women rights and will
help them with anything possible. I
found it interesting to learn more about
the Hyde Amendment and how this bill
could affect women in the future. Many
women choose to abort for many
reasons, but to strip them from the right
of that and make them pay for a tough
choice, is heartbreaking. As for Gary
Johnson his stance on abortion is clear
as well. He supports the choice of the
women and believes that making the
choice of abortion is a personal choice
and shouldnt be made by the
government. He also believes that the
banning of abortion should be a
decision made by the state. As
president he will also help women keep
their health care benefits if they do
decide to abort and will not be
prosecuted. But that health insurances
should make the choice if theyd like to
provide free birth control. But is all this
a good plan? No. Attempts to restrict
and ban abortion at a state level is still
restricting women from their rights.
Laws that restrict women from abortion
could hurt their health and possibly put
them in danger.

TRUE

Gary Johnson will respect the


choice of the mother. He says
that the choice of abortion should
be up to the women involved and
not the government

Education

Gary Johnson will revisit our


education and give more power
to the state and local
governments. He also wants to
eliminate the Federal Department
of Education

On the topic of education what the


candidates have stated is true. Gary
Johnson plans on eliminating the U.S.
Education Department. He has also
states that the federal government
should have no role in our education
system. While his universal voucher
plan will be used for the better. It will
help children get the better education
they need. There are studies that claim
that everything that has been promised
by vouchers has not happened. Yes it
will help a child get the better
education but most of the time vouchers
fail to expand choices for parents.
Sometimes schools who do accept
vouchers dont have space, forcing the
parents to look even further for school
that does accept vouchers. On the other
hand, Hillary believes that the Common
Core system not only helps children but
it also helps better our education
system. But fails to recognize the

briberies behind the common core


system.

it as easy as possible.Just a

should be making it easier for
people to enter the United States
rather than building a wall between
the two countries. Gary Johnson
opposes building a wall between the
U.S. and Mexico. A wall would be
useless because Immigrants will
still find a way to come to the U.S.

else without access to

Politicians have criminalized

the wall. The U.S. would spend


millions of dollars and this is why Gary
Johnson thinks it's a waste and there's
other ways to protect the southern
border. Citylab.com agrees with Gary
Johnson because the wall would be one
of the largest infrastructure project
since the U.S. highway system. And
they think the project makes no sense.
Trump cant build a wall across the
entire border. Its a moon-shot without
a rocket. (citylab.com)
Politifact.com shows How Donald
Trump plans to build the wall.

According to Politifact.com we are the


highest incarceration rate in the world
and accrodring to aclu.org the U.S. has
more than 20% of the world population
which makes us the the worlds biggest
jailers.
According to drugpolicy.org The drug
that most Americans use today is
Marijuana and it has the highest
incarcerations rates for
African-Americans and Latinos.
Gary johnson thinks that the reason we
have the highest incarceration is
because there's too many unnecessary
laws. (ontheissue.org)

Healthcare

Gary Johnson wants a


free-market system so it is more
affordable and for health
insurance to be accessible across
state lines. He believes that the
government should not be
involved in health care for the
public.

According to next avenue.org, What


Gary Johnson said is true. As the
governor of New Mexico, he oversaw
the reform of Medicaid in New Mexico
and changed it from a fee-for-service
model to a managed care model. It
improved on the delivery of health care
in New Mexico and saved hundreds of
millions of dollars. He said it would
probably cost one fifth of what it
currently costs. Johnson wants to
Devolve welfare & medicare and to Cut
Medicare/Medicaid by 43%, as part of
$1.675 trillion cut. You dont know
what cost it is for hospitalization or
surgery, you will know with his free
market approach.

TRUE

Paid Leave

Gary Johnson believes that the

According to procon.org, Ted Cruz


states that, "I think maternity leave and
paternity leave are wonderful things. I
support them personally. But I don't
think the federal government should be
in the business of mandating them."

TRUE

private business should be the


one to decide how much time an
employee has on their leave and
how much they get paid. Ted
Cruz also agrees that the
government should not be
involved, the employee who
needs to leave isnt working for
them.

The U.S Bureau of Labor Statistics says


that, Access to paid sick leave for
full-time workers (73 percent) was
higher than that for part-time workers
(26 percent). There were also
differences in access by wage
percentile: eighty-one percent of
employees earning wages in the highest
25 percent ($24.22 or more per hour) of
the wage distribution had access to paid
sick leave, compared with only 33
percent for employees in the lowest 25
percent ($10.50 or less per hour).

Healthcare

Gary Johnson disapproves of the


Affordable Act Care.

While Clinton & Stein want to keep


Obamacare, Trump & Johnson do not.
Trump wants to change it and Gary
wants to completely get rid of it.
Ontheissues.org, He has stated that
obamacare is unconstitutional and its
promise of a lower cost simply isn't
happening (Jan 2016).
Obamacare is constitutional according
to the supreme court and legislature
since it was passed. According to
politifact.com, Obama said he was
going to cut the cost of a typical
family's health insurance premium by
up to $2,500 a year. No cut in
premiums for typical family have been
made yet.
