I posted this last time and ill post it again:

Shall I explain?

This picture shows President Obama stepping on the Constitution of the United States. Scattered about are other bills and famous documents that all gave the US its current rights, and the money, displaying the US dollars current worth (Even though its still the most globally used currency and in the top 5 strongest). About him are presidents of both the political left and right. We see Washington, Lincoln, Adams, Reagan, Author, and other politically right presidents glaring and shouting at Obama for his desecration of the US constitution. On the other side, we see the political left applauding Obama for what he has done, at last the more left, such as Jimmy carter, Bill Clinton, and (for some reason) Teddy Roosevelt. In the back other presidents seem to show no opinion, or a slight option (JFK with a hand raised, HW bush glaring). The man on the bench represents the American people, confused, disgruntled, and angered.

It represents the way other presidents would feel about what this nation has become under the rule of Obama, and, the more forward you get to him, recent PODUS's rule.

Really, think to yourself. How would George Washington feel if he could see this country today? Or Abe? FDR? Adams? All these men worked their asses off to protect, make, unite, and pull this nation into what it was, and in 16 years it went down.

Politics aside, may I just say that that was obvious? This painting is about as far from subtle as humanly possible.

Check out the link.
Last time, an entire ************** ********* from the very bowels of posiden himself merged with a assclown rageparty forged in cthulhus colon.
I'm here to halt that hit like the third Reich.

well Lincoln and the first republican party were liberal, and teddy Roosevelt was too. I think it's just a mistake that people nowadays think the other way. The problem is political parties.

Pretty sure somebody already has addressed this but Washington would have seen Obama's presidency the same way he would see a mule's presidency .

No offense, but I think that if they saw the country today they would be sad, but they wouldn't blame Obama, yes Obama didn't reverse everything that was bad, but the ship was already going down, I think that they would look at the past presidencies to see where all these problems started.
When you look at the war on terror, that started way back in the cold war, because most of the extremist groups that hate the USA hate them because they are living off of snippets of Communist propaganda, and they believe it, so the previous presidents would probably look at that and blame whatever president was responsible for cold war escalation.
As for the economy, previous presidents would probably blame the outsourcing of work and the fact that business ran themselves into the ground with bad choices.
As for social unrest that is commonplace now, I can't see any single cause for that.

As for what obama is doing, i think it is a slippery slope to go down, but I honestly think that at this point, it's an all or nothing gamble and if the USA comes out of this in one piece, it's going to come out stronger than before.

Lincoln was left. He represent the Republican Party in his time, but parties switched their views completely in the 1930s, so old republicans were actually very liberal.

in 16 years? how long have you been around? This country has had multiple declines and reinvigorations and more than 75 percent of these presidents would find the country unrecognizable from when they served. and most would be shocked at a black president. the point of the constitution was for it to be amended with the changing times, to insure the viability of our country in the future. Trying to hold on to archaic principles stands in the way of progress.

the point clearly went past your head.

Andrew Jackson is standing close to the Reagan/Lincoln/Washington/Jefferson combo and away from Obama, but he was very "federalist" and is considered the "first" Democrat. He would be with the clapping guys.

I'm confused as to exactly what went down.
I don't live there, but America of now seems pretty ******* good compared to a lot of the world.

Basically, you are correct. I'm from Ukraine originally, and I go back very often to kick about Europe. I do a lot of traveling, and honestly there really is no place like the USA. All the people bitching about how much they hate living in america, I just let them. People have no idea how good they have it here.

I'm very happy to live in america (not that I think any less of any other country or whatnot).

Doesn't mean I exactly agree with the way people are managing it, the directions they're taking and the changes they're implementing. There are a lot of things that we're unhappy about that have implications, of which we see as being negative, towards future generations.

Of course I don't speak for all Americans, it's just my own political beliefs.

Hey, I am from Ukraine as well, and I agree wholeheartedly with what you said.
User avatar #138 to #132 - youarenotspecial (02/18/2013) [-]
I'm American and I agree with you. I think a lot of is that it's kind of the "cool" thing to do. If you say you love America or mention all of the amazing things that go along with living in America as an American, people will assume you are a fat extreme nationalist who loves colonialism and hates "the coloreds." Then on the other side of the coin you have the extremely conservative people who refuse to believe that there has ever been anything wrong with America ever and everyone who says otherwise is a lying nazi.

I think the people need to find the happy medium between "yes, these things were/are wrong" while still being damn grateful for all of our privileges.

little white kids just like to whine, let them be. It's not like they suddenly have police kicking down their doors or some shortage of food. Hell, most of these ******* live in big, nice suburbs and still complain about how **** the country is. ******* appreciate the absurdly high standard of living you have ffs.

There were different times, Washington lived during slavery and would probably **** bricks if he saw a black man as president. Actually a lot of those presidents would probably **** bricks and shot him on the spot.

Once upon a time Republicans were called Democrats and Democrats were called Republicans. Lincoln was called a Republican but ideologically was a Democrat. Thus, this picture sucks.
