NEW Gary Johnson's campaign ad: 'Dream A Little'

Two-term Governor, Gary Johnson, says the people running America have a different idea than the people who founded it. We can't count on the two-party system to act responsibly and fairly for us, the people. In order to put government back on the side of the people, we have to elect one of the people. Gary Johnson has a proven ability to cut spending and make government fair and efficient for everyone. Let's try that in Washington for a change.

Powerful ad

I agree with others that it got really good halfway through when he started talking about American decline and dreaming for a restored America. I'd start with economic despair and moral depravity rather than privacy concerns. That probably makes me a liberty Republican.

Im

lovin' it

I don't think this is the

I don't think this is the most effective ad... civil liberties and personal privacy are important issues, but I don't know that enough of the general public/voters are informed enough/care enough about those issues for this ad to do much of anything in terms of convincing them to support Johnson.

It does at least attack BOTH republicans and democrats.... but if it's going to focus on a single issue, it'd be better if it focused on say, foreign policy (given the recent news and the wars- everyone is all too familiar with that issue), or the economy/jobs, or spending/debt.

Hopefully they'll make more ads soon- even if just for youtube/the internet.

Another piece of advice: include more facts/specific information and less scare tactics (eg, showing big-government type secret buildings stuffed with files on citizens- comes across as semi-conspiratorial, even if it's true). The goal should be to appeal to as many as people/broaden his appeal.... and risking coming across as cooky won't help.

They should consider attack ads that combine attacks on Romney and Obama in the same ad- demonstrate (with facts) how they're the same or similar on important issues, that they're hypocritical- and then juxtapose with Johnson's record.

Good points

Not sure if you watched the previous ads.

Solid

One thing I really like is it clearly targets Obama voters.

It would be a waste to just go after Romney people.

GJ has a great campaign team

Great point.
And polling done in several states point that GJ takes about as much people from Romney as he does from Obama.

Individualism-
To be nobody but yourself in a world which is doing its best, night and day, to make you everybody else means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight; and never stop fighting.
