Can I request a political cartoon?Submitted by Benjamin Vander Jagt on Wed, 10/30/2013 - 23:45
I have zero graphical artistic ability. I want to draw a political cartoon, but what would take a novice sketcher a minute would take me days. I'll just tell the Daily Paul community what's in my head, and if someone wants to run with it, then please feel free.
I imagine a well-dressed big-brother-figure, like a stereotypical FBI agent, tightening thumb-screw torture devices on an average American Joe Schmoe, who is sitting in a rickety-looking chair that one might imagine people get strapped to in overseas torture camps. The chair might have straps and stuff on it, but Joe is simply sitting in the chair, positioned as if he's restrained but with nothing actually holding him down. The official guy is tightening the thumb screw while Joe shows obvious agony at the torture. However, on Joe's hip, next to his completely unrestrained hand, is his holstered pistol, showing that there's no reason he should let this continue.
Anyway, just a thought.
