If a third world nation's people were to elect the president of the US, how would ads change?
Hypothetical question: If A third world nation's people were to elect the next president of the U.S. as president of the U.S (not the third world nation) how do you think the political ads would change? what do you think the running points would be? This is a critical thinking question... please use your brains and not just your emotions... thanks... no real right nor wrong answer... have at it people!
I'm going to think outside the box here and say that ads will change mainly in the way they are delivered: People in 3rd world countries do not have televisions, Facebook, Twitter, or Time Magazine. Well maybe we could mail them all copies of Time. But you might see advertisements more in the form of people actually coming and talking to the voters. More of the door-to-door kind of thing, and less of the hate-filled TV advertisements about how the other candidate will 'lead us to our demise and blah blah blah...' The good thing about door-to-do political people is they typically cater their pitch to what's important to you. Usually the first question I get after the "Are you registered to vote?" question is "Is XYZ important to you?"
Exactly the same way you see them in the U.S. After all aren't we just about the same status as any other 3rd world nation? Looking at our economy and the corruption in government with dictators taking over every state, exactly how does this country differ from other 3rd world nations other than its size? The same technology is present around the world and soon our news media and the w.w.w. will be totally government (corporate america) owned and operated.
To a degree... Ecologically speaking... the difference between a third world nation has a lot to do with infant mortality death rates and birthrates, distribution of wealth, and education of the masses.... so we are kind of the same... yet not quite
we are getting there rapidly. After november elections the GOP will take over and make this a corporate run theocratic government. Canada never looked so good
I think third-world nations, and many first-world nations (like Spain, Poland and others) would push the following points.
We want one big happy family of independent individual and sovereign nations.
Elect Dr. Ron Paul as President of the great United States
* No more wars of Corporate aggression and greed
* No more endangering the world economy by a never-ending deficit spending
* Leading the world by example, by restoring the Constitution of the United States
* No more murder by presidential Executive Order
Like the wise man said 2000 years ago, you can tell a tree by the fruit it bears. Return America to bearing fruit worthy of the land of the free and home of the brave.
Restore America's sanity
It would depend on the specific nation doing the electing. The US could end up with a sub-literate religious lunatic (Iran) or a power-grabbing dictator (Zimbabwe) or any combination thereof. Again, depending upon the population, ads would have to be informed by political and social perceptions; i.e., they would be aimed at what the candidates think the people will believe, very similar to what happens now only with an understanding that what Americans want doesn't necessarily conform to what citizens of developing countries want. Bottom line, the people would probably vote for the candidate who would help them feed their families and provide long-term security and stability, some sort of safety net, including health care, to treat the ravages of diseases and disasters with which they have had experience. In other words, they would be convinced by ads that advocated being nice to everyone, not only the privileged few. A provocative question.
They'd look like they were produced by Telemundo, featuring big-breasted, heavily made up women sighing breathily over the macho candidate.
