Freedom of Choice by darthhorus Freedom of Choice by darthhorus
We need more than 2 major parties in the United States if we as a country are going to survive the next 100 years.

Our Masonic forefathers had wanted an eventual dictatorship ruled by the educated and funded by the rich, to keep our poor citizens where they belong. And while it would appear that they suceeded, we belittle ourselves in thoughts of 'Our leader cares'.

The Utopian principals of a Marxist society are vastly misunderstood and unfortunately no better a solution to the capitalist regime we live under.

In the end it doesn't matter who is in the grande chair in the oval office. Both Democrats and Republicans have throughout history proven that they will only do what we as individuals agree to 50% of the time.

There needs to be a better choice than 'Damned if you do and Damned if you don't.'

This sprung to mind from a doodle I did at work. The majority of it is done in Tablet (if you can't tell how crappy it kinda looks). I did use a mirror effect for the gun toting hands but not on the girl, though looking at it, she sorta looks like a mirror image...hrm.

Ah well.

Again, anyone with some tablet suggestions on anything, more than welcome to drop me a line.

Indeed we do. That's why I'm all for the support of either Ron Paul or Gary Johnson.

Are you referring to the crony capitalistic system we currently have? Y'know the one that said "We're too big to fail" and got bail outs by the fools in government(Democrat and Republicans alike)using the working dollars of our tail busting tax payers. The stupidity of our government and the foolishness of the "Too Big to Fail" corporations is what screwed us over and put the economy in a coma.
I'm sorry, I understand if we had just let them fall it would result in job loss but I think we would've recovered faster because new companies(hopefully learning from the mistakes of their predecessors ) would have replaced the fallen ones and provided new and more jobs. Those CEO's who fell from being the top are gonna have to deal w/ being the lower man again or for once....

Things that are killing us
1)Crony Capitalism
2) Our Broken Welfare System. We would probably benefit if we replaced it with job skills training system.
3) Policing and interfering with the working of other nations when it has nothing to do with us.
4) The divide between Democrats and Republicans.
5) Thinking w/ emotion before logic...
6) No Child Left Behind Act.
7) Drug War on Marijuana(I wouldn't ever smoke that crap but as long as you ain't smoking around me I'm good...)

These were in no particular order...

I don't mind Ron Paul, but a lot of his supporters are FUCKING CRAZY if you don't mind my french.

I would have prefered Santorum or ..oh crap I can't remember his name all of a sudden. Herman Cain. Yeah. Herman would have mopped the floor with Barack.

I agree, some of his supporters are beeping nuts and that's a bit of a turn off. Ron Paul does have most of his head and heart in the right place.

I didn't really like Santorum but I did like Herman Cain and I agree he would have mopped the floor. Cain's 9-9-9 plan sounded nice. Now if only he hadn't put in the gutter.

Now I'm stuck between Ron Paul and Gary Johnson. Mr. Paul has some good ideas but Gary Johnson's seems like a more potential winner considering he was nominated as the Libertarian Candidate. He already has a sound position. Plus considering his success in New Mexico and his ideas seem more appealing (His and RP's are actually a lot similar to each others) because they're are more modernized. More fit for this era.
Here's a link to the Gary Johnson website: [link]

I respectfully disagree. I will say that ALL politicians are idiots who will say anything to get (re)elected, but there is no "good" form of government period. I am not an anarchist. It really is a choice of the least of evils, but humanity has survived *this* far, which given the state of our technology and the intelligence of our leaders over the past couple decades, is really quite impressive.

heh technically speaking our country is more of a Republic then a Democracy. Socialist in economy, and Democratic in government would be the way to go I think.

Heh I do love your "doddle". I think it explains what really happends. But all we can do for now is vote for the lesser evil of the two...

yes, the desc deserves a fav itself- I follow you view but I think instead of the two parties branching into many popular parties we should just stop hating each other for the fact we fall under seperate catagories and try to communicate and share our ideas instead of becoming even divided. Its almost racist, our descriminating against the opposite party

You're absolutely right about the two major parties. The Libertarians ought to win an election.

I recommend that any artist not intimately familiar with guns use references when drawing them. See World Firearms and Ammunition for pretty good references for basically any gun you could wanna draw.

Uhm. Real guns don't look primitive... There are so many guns on the market right now with sleek contours, polymer stocks and frames, anodized or coated metallic slides and polished steel triggers and other such futuristic and traditionally sci-fi looks to them that it's a little scary. Seen a Sig or a GLOCK or an HK or a Walther or a Smith lately? Polymer grip frames, matched frames, ergonomic design... Modern firearms are by no means primitive and are, in fact, much more complicated and futuristic-looking than the weapons you have illustrated in this piece.

Argh. Exactly. I had someone ask me, "Are you republican or democrat?" To which I replied, "I'm independant." They replied: "That's not a party."

People.

Great piece, though. The blank look on her face is so well done, showing that she's just willing to accept the two parties; after all, that is what this country has been for so long.

I agree with you completely. Amen for multiple parties in Canadian politics. Unfortunate for the US that there really isnt much in the way of choice when it comes to the political system.

As for your piece, it definately captures alot of emotion and the expression on her face just says it all, either way she turns is not going to be a way she wants to. Stunning work, i definately enjoy it.

This is quite the peice of work. Especially with how the way that the guns are constructed and that the names of both political parties are marked/etched into the sides. ALl of them aiming at the person in the center whose expression is rather hard to gather because it's not clear what she's feeling, whether she's afraid or rather she's apathetic about the whole situation. Of course teh American flag in teh background does add to teh affect of the patriotism as well as teh oxymoron of freedom of choice in this situation. Goes to show that when it comes to unimportant things like cereals, cat food, dog food, and so on, the choices are unlimited, but when it comes to political parties, the choices are very few and far between. Going back to what I was saying, this is quite the peice of work.
