I saw this commercial for dividedwefail.org twice last night, and I find it pretty disturbing. Now the AARP (it’s actually an ad by them promoting their agenda) is using kids to scare us with health care and social security. I’m sure the AARP’s big concern is kids. After all, there is nothing to be gained for older people, right? I’m only posting it here because I can’t believe how manipulative and sneaky it is.
It’s bad enough that the AARP is using kids to hide their true motives. But the worst part of this ad to me is what it implies:
1) If you have a problem, look to the government to fix it.
2) You only have two choices when you vote.
3) We’d be better off if these two choices were narrowed down to a singular entity (no choice). I’d argue that we’re already there.
