to “Fearless”—find out what you need to know about Ron Paul, who is a classical racist and who would abolish Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid. Then defend your position that Obama has wrought us into a banana republic, when we have defended the development of democracy abroad. Then support whatever else you said. Give reason for saying it. Then you might be “fearless”. Or maybe you will still be ignorant.

That’s a great point Mike! Lobbies have waaay too
much influence on the government. But there are
lobbies that are even bigger and more influential
than the NRA. Would you dare replace the labels in
your comic above with the “AIPAC”?

There is a great difference between the two major US parties. While Democrats in campaigns promise what they may not be able to deliver, they at least work on the side of hope of what should be delivered. Republicans maliciously say one thing, then do another. For example, in the 2010 congressional elections, the Republicans were all about “jobs, jobs, jobs”. After winning the majority in the House, they did nothing with regard to jobs. They simply obstructed a Democratic president on everything—including the creation of jobs. Republicans stand for enhancing the privileges of their own elite, the very wealthy and the most selfish people in our country. Democrats try harder to progress the country. Republicans impede voting; Democrats stand for democracy. I have only just begun to describe the differences between these very different groups of people. ~ Dale Reynolds, free lance writer and editor

Good point dale, I remember not just the republicans
though i keep in mind the democrats as well. both
parties serve us empty promises that are only upheld
until after the election is over

Guns don’t kill people. Poverty, mass consumerism,
and a lack of education kill people.
@Dale Reynolds - On election day, I’ll remember how
both mass and alternative media disappeared Ron Paul,
and how their half-dead ‘market’ did what they were
told. I’ll remember how Barack Obama officially
ushered us into a Banana Republic, and how brand
Obama™ made war, the surveillance state, and
widespread poverty digestible if not completely
acceptable. I’ll try to remember what it feels like
to have dignity, and I’ll vote for the best candidate
by staying the f*ck home.

This cartoon should say lobbyist instead of NRA

On Election Day, remember the Republicans. Remember what they have been doing to our country. ~ Dale Reynolds, free lance writer and editor
