“A chicken in every pot.”oSentimental AppealsThis slogan said by Herbert Hoover is an example of a sentimental appeal because Hoover is trying to gain votes by making people feel obligated to vote for him. Hoover is promising to give every person food, a chicken in every pot, therefore touching their hearts by promising them and their family food, sentimental appeal. “No taxation without representation.”oFaulty Causality This slogan is an example of faulty causality because it’s describing a “after this, therefore because of this” event, this slogan is saying no taxes will be created because nobody is representing the people.
“No Payne, your gain.”oFaulty AnalogyThis slogan is an example of a faulty analogy because its being compared to a common phrase, “no pain, no gain.” Most people believe that a person can’t gain anything without first feeling somepain, so when being compared to Payne the arguer is saying that Payne is similar to pain but instead of helping others gain, Payne would only make things worse. “Loose lips sink ships.”oFaulty Causality This slogan is an example of faulty causality because its saying that loose lips will cause a ship to sink, therefore “after this, therefore because of this.”“Guns don’t kill, people do.”oEquivocationThis slogan is an example of equivocation because it’s a half-truth,guns do kill but people use guns so it’s trying to make it sound likethe people are killing instead of the gun and its ammunition. “If you can’t stand the heat, get out of the kitchen.” oAd HominemThis slogan is also an example of Ad Hominem because it’s attacking another person by telling them they aren’t talented enough to understand what’s going on therefore they should just leave, which is an attack to the other person.
