Political slogan

A political slogan is a slogan used in a political context.

A political slogan generally expresses a goal or aim ("Workers of the world, unite!").

Slogans are effective political devices especially in a heavily mediated context.

They often summarize the essence of a platform effectively, as in 1884 when the the United States Republican party attacked the Democrats as "the party of rum, Romanism, and rebellion". The Democrats were anti-prohibition, many were immigrant Roman Catholics, and southerners.
