What They Should’ve Said

2016 Presidential Debates

Politics aside, we can guarantee that this year’s presidential debates will be full of opportunities to talk about key issues facing Americans this fall. 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.

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 some of these statements and transform them into good, compelling arguments from a liberty-minded perspective. We did our best to stay true to the candidate’s intentions. As TFM focuses on messaging and policy, we do not endorse either candidate.

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.
