This article is about how todays campaigns are run by money more than ever before. It explains details of the watergate scandal and how it has formed the way campaigns are run today. The author asserts that super PACs make todays election corrupt. The author uses logos, ethos, pathos, as well as kairos. Almost all of the claims are logos, with less ethos and much less pathos. And kairos is important too because campaigning is happening right now. It is a good time to bring up this argument. There are tons of examples of logos, close to the whole article is logos. Almost everything he says appeals to logic. Ethos can be found when he says that the campaigns are corrupt. And pathos is used a little when he describes what our political system will be like if things keep going the way they are. Most of the claims are fact claims, but a few were policy and value. He says what kind of reforms our government should enact. That's a policy claim. He also says things are corrupt and immoral, which are value claims.
