Nobody cares that the Founding Fathers founded a Republic, though, anymore…(sigh).....

Yes, but, the “eyes on one side of the head” on COWS?!

And that’s what DEMOCRACY is illusive and abstract.

Perfect. Is it not “Democracy, Inc.” which is dropping Hellfire (missiles) onto remote Pakistani villages, in the name of “freedom”, or, possibly, “women’s liberation”? Was it not the same ideology which excused and justified last month’s Guernica operation on the Gaza strip, where new urban counterinsurgency weapons were tested in “real-time”? This is what we’ve come to, as we celebrate the lame, empty election of an African-American to the presidency, a leader who already has made it clear he will continue the kidnapping, torture and murder of anyone deemed a security threat (except not at the public relations liability, Guantanamo, and not by Americans, who will revert to “observer” status in foreign interrogation dungeons).

Mr. Fish, this is the best yet. The American people have as of yet, not the true nature of an autocratic and despotic regime.
The shrub, limited as he was by the Constitution, even for the record stated that, “Everything would be better under a dictatorship, If only he was the dictator.” How dare he assume that the people would want him and his brain, Karl Rove, and Darth Vader, to be the cabal of leadership that would control the US.
Somehow, someway, the people of the shrub’s administration and the shrub himself, must be prosecuted for the war crimes and crimes against humanity that occurred under his “Kingship,”
Enough ranting, this cartoon speaks to all despots and autocrats, even the ones in power in Congress and the Executive Branch. Stop Now What you are doing, We the people are the power and you our servants.

Powerful, Mr. Fish. I keep wanting to move the text low, low, lower.

Awesome. People have to remember that every war or even dictatorship were put up with the pretext that what they were doing was for the good of the people. Every dictator is popular, and one has to paint an atrocious movement as good.
That’s the same thing when politicians talk about the democratization of X, the means don’t justify the end (we didn’t even accomplish the end).
