Homework Help: English- Fallacies

Posted by Anonymous on Sunday, September 7, 2008 at 10:34pm.

Decide which, if any, fallacy might be used to describe the following political slogans or phrases:

the fallacies are:
-scare tactic
-slippery slope
-sentimental appeals
-bandwagon appeals
-appeals to false authority
-moral equivalence
-ad hominem arguements
-hasty generalization
-faulty causualty
-begging the question
-non sequitur
-the straw man
-faulty analogy

1. "Leave no child behind." (George Bush policy and slogan)
I would say that this one is a sentimental appeal.. ??

2. "It's the economy, stupid." (sign on the wall at Bill Clinton's campaign headquarters)

3. "Nixon's the one." (campaign slogan)
would it be dogmatism??

4. "Remember the Alamo."

5. "Make love, not war." (antiwar slogan during the Vietnam War)

6. "A chicken in every pot."

7. "No taxation without representation."

8. "There's no free lunch."

9. "Loose lips sink ships."
scare tactic??

10. "Guns don't kill people, people do." (NRA slogan)
umm hasty generalization??

11. "If you can't stand the heat, get out of the kitchen."

I have looked all of these fallacies up, but I am just having a hard time deciding which one goes with each political slogan.
