I like it. I agree with it.

Painting is an art form that often allows the artist to present an opinion. The latest work by artist Jon McNaughton does just that, portraying President Barack Obama burning the constitution in “One Nation Under Socialism” which has drawn its far share of detractors. McNaughton describes the new painting on his Facebook page:


“’I pledge allegiance to the United States of America,
And not to an ideology, which can never stand,
One nation under socialism, divisive,
With no liberty or justice for anyone.’

This November, you will make a choice. Will you choose One Nation Under Socialism?”

Good likeness. The Constitution is only safe if protected by all. I have no fears.

Which is ... ? What's the gripe against the constitution? It's a nice illustration, although you shouldn't judge a book by its a cover.

So do people think that if they keep saying Obama is a socialist it will eventually become true? Because in most countries in the Western world he'd be labled as conservative or centeralist.

War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things: the decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth a war, is much worse...A man who has nothing which he is willing to fight for, nothing which he cares more about than he does about his personal safety, is a miserable creature who has no chance of being free, unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.

When people don't know what they are talking about, much less what others are talking about, they can label everything as they want, you know: Goods are carried by 40 ton diesel sausages lately.... :devil:

Painting scenes like that is really extreme IMO - someone has way too much time on their hands coupled with an unhealthy obsession.

"I warn you, whoever you are, oh you who wish to probe the arcanes of nature, if you do not find within yourself that which you seek, neither shall you find it outside.
If you ignore the excellencies of your own house, how do you intend to find other excellencies?
In you is hidden the treasure of treasures, Oh man, know thyself and you shall know the Universe and the Gods."

You must admit he's talented though. To a great artist, going from imagination to canvas may not take too much time at all. It's just probably easy for him. I wouldn't say it an obsession. If you check out his web page he has many different types and styles of painting and only 5 out of 260 or so are political. That's not really obsession. He just conveys into art what we do here in words. I'll agree on the extreme part though only because it's visual. How many times have you heard or read here in these forums what he shows in art? I've probably said those things and have been called several things probably but I don't recall being labeled extreme. Just uninformed, conservative, slave driver and racist and even a 1%er once, all from folks uninformed about me. Anyhow, since I agreed with you, why do you think seeing a message is more extreme than hearing or reading one? I'd guess it's because it brings the issue to life in a sense...

He's got talent. The paintings are ridiculous but they will get attention and I'm sure that's what he's looking for. Attention and the money that comes with it.  :rolleyes:

I am outraged that someone would portray the PRESIDENT of the U.S.A. in an unfavorable light.  This man, whether you agree with him or not, deserves the utmost respect...

OUT-RAGED!!!

err...  wait a minute.

Not sure I agree with the depiction of Clinton and the Roosevelts as being complicit in the misuse/ignorance of the Constitution.
Also, white Jesus is starting to annoy me.
