Businesses are not the only ones who advertise to Americans. Politicians also advertise their services to us; *they* are the product. America's politicians should be held to the same "Truth in Advertising" standards as any other business attempting to sell goods or services to the American public!
American citizens have a RIGHT to be able to trust that their candidates & representatives are not lying to them in the same way that the businesses selling them potato chips or lawn mowers cannot lie to them!
U.S. Truth in Advertising Laws state:
>>Advertising must be truthful and non-deceptive
>>Advertisers must have evidence to back up their claims
>>Advertisements cannot be unfair
An ad is considered deceptive if it contains a statement - or omits information - that:
>> Is likely to mislead consumers (voters) acting reasonably under the circumstances; and
>> Is "material" - that is, important to a consumer's (voter's) decision to buy or use the product (or vote for the politician).
To ensure the aforementioned, the American People demand the creation of a Truth in Political Advertising Act by Congress, and the implementation of a non-partisan Voter Protection Agency for enforcement of that Act and to help protect the rights & interests of all American voters!
