Political Graphics - aka Propaganda
« on: September 08, 2012, 11:26:33 PM »
New thread for images that are political, but that aren't directly related to the election; images that are not so much partisan as existential.  The next post contains an image that, I hope, illustrates the concept.

Oceander nice.

Dramatic, sharp hard edged like NAZI symbolism was.

Was it done with PS,FW or AI ?
I'll believe liberals are sentient when Obama starts attacking them with drones.

Thanks!

This was done in GIMP.  I have CorelDraw for doing vector graphics, but I do all my raster graphics in GIMP (can't afford any of the Adobe stuff).

Just a nice little bumper sticker.  As the federal government becomes Leviathan, tax evasion becomes a patriotic duty.

In "honor" of Mr. Biden's brief moment of clarity and truth (and an allusion to the Soviet-style economics the democrats intend to visit on all of us):

Nikita Biden. Very nice.
Liberalism isn't really about making the world a better place. It's about reassuring the elites that they are good people for wanting to rule over it.
