Cartoon Represents How Many People Feel
In a day and age when elected officials in Washington, D.C., seem to be treating the American people more like turkeys than bosses, I offer the Thanksgiving Day cartoon above as representative of how many Americans feel on this special day.
Though I’m not advocating violence against elected officials (at least, not yet), the thought crossed my mind that the turkeys in the cartoon represent taxpayers who are angry over the fact that their elected officials seem to be dragging the country toward socialism. Conversely, the pilgrim tied to the table is a member of Congress who ignores the will of the people and votes in favor things like government-run health care, bailouts for automakers, banks and insurance companies and so-called stimulus packages.
I’m thankful on this day for all I have. At the same time, I’m not eager to give it up. That’s why I will continue the good fight for truth, justice and the American way…INSTEAD of socialism!
