...You’re nothing but a pack of cards...
The image standing alone would be something that I'd buy. And would love to see 30' x 45' hanging off of the front the Wall Street Stock Exchange.
I think it would have made the point much more effectively without the text.
Just one opinion. Tomorrow I might feel different depending on how much TV I'v watched.
Yes. Great image.
btw, i hate bush, have from day 1, so your my new best friend.
Quite frankly, the symbol on the cards could be a donkey as well--it in fact could be both. I'm a registered republican, and I as well as anyone else know that nobody lives in perfection, nobody can uphold all of their promises, and sometimes nobody wants to tell the whole truth. The leader of our country is human, thus is no exception, no matter who he may be. We are not human without mistakes, and unfortunately, the President is subject to that as well. I agree it shouldn't be that way, and it's wrong.
I've always thought of this quote from Jack Lemmon in My Fellow Americans as the definition of "the voice of the people:"
"The voice of the people? There is no such thing. You've got 300 million people all screaming for something different and the only thing you seem to agree on is lower taxes. The voice of the people, my fanny."
Sad, but true. It's pretty sad that we just don't have a definitive voice of the people, either democratic or republican. I myself don't believe in everything that Bush has done while in his term of presidency, and I don't believe there is a miracle cure residing in Kerry's camp, either.
We are AMERICAN, thus, we have a CHOICE. This is our freedom, to express ourselves in words and in art, as pseudo-manitou has done here. I hope everybody who has seen this piece of art goes out and votes for your respective beliefs. I know I will.
I hope I have not offended anyone with this post; that's not what I was shooting for. I truly appreciate your art and your message, pseudo-manitou. Well done. May others have your courage in the future. Just remember--
America is the worst country in the world....except for every place else.
Quite frankly Myoozik, that does kind of offend.
It is a careless statement; it is lazy, and worse yet - cynical.
Republican politicians have full control of the system, and this is what they have done with it. It was policy - it was four years of policy; not mistakes - and certainly not four years of mistakes. If it was accidental, then one would think that any individual would turn things around after even only one year of mistakes...
But after four years? NO - these 'accidents' were deliberate. It was everything they wanted, and to say anything else is to excuse some of the most horrendous abuses of power and trust know in the past 100 years on whimsy alone.
Then... to point around and say that everyone is just as capable of making the same 'mistakes'... that is equally cynical. The majority of people in America are better then Bush and the current state of Republican doctrine; they want a nation that works for the people, not just themselves. Kerry and others may not have the immediate solutions, but they have the desire to set things right, and we just have not seen that from most Republicans in a long time.
The minds that created our problems will NOT solve them. So don't you go and give them a free pass from the decisions they've made.
then do something about it. Perhaps you're on the wrong site.
If you've got the motive behind those words you might actually do something great for our wonderful country.
I don't feel like instigating or fueling any battle, or creating any more "lazy" statements. So just look at my comment and read
"I like the tangible courage in this piece; bold use of color. Keep up the great work."
I hope to see your work going somewhere.
Way ahead of you. The art is just is my hobby...
Most people that ever talk about politics are just jackasses with shoulda coulda woulda written all over 'em.
I appreciate your comments, though--very rare to stumble across intelligence like yours, and I'm honored to have chatted with you, however indirectly.
I'll be watching! Hope to talk with you again sometime. Best wishes! And keep up those scathing comments too--it actually makes people think, y'know.
I know it made me think. (gasp!) lol No matter how stupid THAT makes me look.
Best of luck in all that you do.
When you reach your conclusion about that, apply whatever emotion you like to it; so long as it is a fair assessment.
For myself, I am frustrated, and I will not allow this self delusional/self destruction to go on without voicing my frustration back at it. Am I wrong for that?
You are right - not all conservatives are ugly people. Still, it's not like I can comment on the Republican platform - but avoid insulting those who are self described republicans. Propaganda just doesn't lend itself to that kind of complexity.
I'm a registered republican. I'm a libertarian, and I'm not a Bush supporter. I don't appreciate being deemed an idiot and some "fucking republican bastard" because of a small choice I made - a small way to define -some of- my views and beliefs.
As I said, I'm not a Bush supporter. I dislike him as much as any democrat would, although I don't run around throwing insults back and forth. Please realize that two different titles CANNOT accurately define the personalities and thoughts of all of America - far from it. We go for whatever suits us, and doing so doesn't make us right-wing or left-wing "wackos."
Don't be prejudiced against the people that belong to one political party simply because of that. Hate them for what's on the inside, once you actually know them.
Nice art. Offensive, close-minded message.
Now... if you truly believe that your political choices do not define the person you are, then perhaps you can also believe that these insults are not meant for you?
Just an 'open' thought...
Keep up the awesome work.
Awesome work, comrade. It takes a lot of guts to do political art. And very well-done art, at that! Good vector art is always a treat. Thank you for saying what needed to be said! Hopefully, it'll be better around this poor country of ours.
*I'm* a Republican...
*huggles her Bush plushie*
Even though I don't agree with the message, I do enjoy your work, artistic-wise. ^_^
...hug your lies if you find them comfortable. Just don't be upset if we feel that supporting such lies is just as damaging as the lies themselves.
