Stars n' Bars

By proz
Hi folks, so basically this upload is pretty much going to appeal to me, maybe one or 2 others but I doubt it will set any records of any sort.

It is a presidential election year in the states again. Each time one of these rolls around I think more and more that the movie "The Matrix" could be real. This recent republican convention really made it seem that way.

God, if you are up there and paying attention, it's time for an intervention in the good ole USA!

Okay, stepping off my soapbox now.

Strong, graphic work with a slight slant...
Look you're a country of however many million inhabitants, all you have to do is find one honest, competent individual every few years. Just like we manage in the UK...

Well spotted Proz, and a very topical subject. You dont suffer alone however; for some reason or another we in the UK seem to hear more about your election than we do of our own !! It will pass however and the world will still keep turning.

It must be scary stuff to vote for one of the most powerful man in the world. Especially if they are a couple of ''woosies''!!!
I think Sarah Palin looks sexy with these glasses on tho,but realise that perhaps you would need a stronger reason to give her a vote.
Oh well,best of luck to you Proz.( I think you will need it !!)

Excellent semi-abstract with powerful message, included and attached. I suspect my soapbox is much the same as yours. My problem is that the only apparent cure available to us at the moment is not self-evidently better than the disease......imho, of course....
