Last Friday, high school students from the United Nations International School (UNIS) took on presidential campaign ads as part of The LAMP’s Break the Election program. And just in time, too – voters in Hawaii, Michigan, Mississippi and Idaho are heading to the polls today to cast their votes for who should represent the Republican and Democratic parties.
We especially love that the breaks from the UNIS students aren’t so much taking on the individual candidates, as they are challenging the artifice of political campaign messaging. Why does Hillary have to be someone she (probably) is not? Why is it more important for us to know Marco Rubio’s Super Bowl pick than it is to know how he might run the country?
