What They Should Have Said

To be a truly effective communicator, we believe it’s important to use emotionally compelling storytelling to capture the heart of the listener. We also believe in taking the moral high ground, being hopeful and optimistic and putting the other side on defense.

This is not an easy task, even for the most prepared and skilled communicators.

We’ve decided to take statements made by influential individuals in politics, business and culture and transform them into good, compelling arguments from a liberty-minded perspective to show and encourage effective communication of our ideas. We do our best to stay true to the speaker’s intentions. TFM focuses on messaging and policy and does not endorse or oppose any candidates we focus on.

Unfortunately, the debates are likely to be full of missed chances to communicate clearly. While some statements may be downright false, others will probably based on good logic and sound policy, but just not communicated well.

Some of today’s brightest minds and best communicators gave us their thoughts on what the candidates would say if they could go back again. We enjoyed it and think you will too.
