Advertisers are held to relatively strict standards with regards to marketing their products. For the longest time, they weren't even ALLOWED to mention their opposition in their ads, giving birth to the name "Brand X" over a similar-looking logo. And if they furnish FALSE information about their product, or their opponent's product, then lawsuits come a-flying!

Think of the possibilities if our POLITICIANS were held to the same standards as our advertisers.

There is a thin, ethical line between ADVERTISING and PROPAGANDA. Advertisers try to get you to buy something that you don't necessarily need. Propagandists try to sell you something that you definitely don't want...

HOPE AND CHANGE was a brilliant propaganda campaign to sell you a turd sandwich called SOCIALISM.
