Join or Die 2.0 by ElizabethBarndollar Join or Die 2.0 by ElizabethBarndollar
This is taken from the historic Benjamin Franklin "Join or Die" [link] After seeing all of the trouble in Washington and this debt ceiling crisis I wanted to illustrate the magnitude of how this situation will effect our future.

Just added the making of video here: [link]

You might like as of recently that some of the states, about 35 so far, are having a petition to succeed from the corrupt government.

franklin's philosophy was correct- in terms of uniting the states= the "united states" of america (u.s.a.).
>the civil war was not fought over "slavery." the war was fought over "nationalism vs. federalism."
>had the south won the war- france & the british would have surely waged war against the "confederate states of america."
>france would've had the perfect opportunity to reinstate the "louisiana purchase" & take-back the (c.s.a.) south.

uniting was the only option. southerners that take pride in the "confederate flag" have no clue that the south once belonged to the french. this symbol means more than sovereignty or our modern political system (nice touch btw). it was a map/plan for the security of this countries future.

all the while- women, africans & natives were being oppressed- it's a cruel joke for white-males.

:wow: My jaw just dropped, literally.
As one who has recently looked into such history, I find this very fitting.

Each cut represents the Shadow Government, the Lobbyists in Washington, and the bosses of both parties.

I hadn't thought of that but it makes a lot of sense. I really like the idea of doing another picture that represents that. Thank you for commenting!

The irony is that after Ben Franklin drew that political cartoon the colonies didn't unite for decades.
