The Liberal Attack Ad: A Good Start But...
I am glad the Liberals have finally released an attack ad. And I like it because it tells the truth about the sleazy Cons who are stinking out our government.
But I also think it could be more hard hitting. Because it's one thing to call them bad people. Or the mob.
But to be truly effective in a country as disengaged as Canada you have to link truth to consequence. Hit the dumb masses between the eyes and show them what it means to THEM.
Like Dominique Leblanc did the other day during Question Period.
The Parliamentary Budget Officer has confirmed our fears. The Conservative fighter jets are really going to cost double what the Conservatives have been telling us. The amount of $30 billion is how much money the Government of Canada transfers to provinces for health care. No wonder the Conservatives continue to hide the real cost.
Do Conservatives seriously believe that 65 stealth fighters are as important to Canadians as every doctor, nurse and hospital in our country?
And of course they must be darker. Because the threat of a Harper majority is a very dark thing. And in the end this election will come down to this one question:
Would YOU trust Stephen Harper with a majority?
And if you want Canadians to pay attention you must create a mood of menace. Because a lot of people don't vote for a platform, their vote is determined by how they FEEL about a leader.
Which is what I'm trying to do with this slightly revised new/nouveau version of a video I made the other day...
You know I don't get much feedback on my videos.
But after my last one, a guy sent me a comment saying they were LOWER than the Con ads. And he was SHOCKED.
But I was totally flattered eh? Because now I know I'm on the right track, and they ain't seen nothing yet.
Good for the Liberals. Let's go NDP. Come on YouTube Warriors.
Hit them where it HURTS...
