Address America: People's slogans about long-term issues

September 4, 2012 by NCC Staff

 

As the GOP convention wrapped up in Tampa, we caught up with people who had some catchy six-word slogans that spoke to long-term issues in our society.

Address America: Your Six-Word Stump Speech asks people to create a “stump speech,” in exactly six words, that sums up their thoughts on key election issues.

We took our portable campaign stump to the streets of Tampa and got some slogans that truly address big issues that even transcend the current presidential campaign.

Here are some examples:

"Education should be a bigger issue. "

"Constitutional rights. Once forsaken, never returned."

"Respect the religious beliefs of others."

"One thing makes dreams impossible: fear."

"Really true freedom comes from within."
