For the People, Not Buy the People

For the People, Not Buy the People

Describe your work and why you think it could inspire people to act on this issue.

The piece is an homage to Lincoln and a positive affirmation that the voice of "the people" should stand above moneyed interests.

With iconic symbols and a phrase that represents the American ideal, I have created an image that can be instantly understood and widely applied.

What do you think is the biggest issue of money in politics today?

A healthy democracy exists to further the interests of its citizenry. Big money in politics has the potential to interfere with this primary function by placing the interests of large donors over those of the people.

Corporations are not people and moneyed interests should not be allowed to pollute the democratic system.

Citizen United is for Plutocracy (Government rule by the wealthy) and not Democracy. I my eyes this is nothing short of treason against our country.

This design is very sophisticated and smart. Most of all the message is important!

I really appreciate the directness, and the simplicity. As you said, it is right to the point and both words and image are immediately understood. Nothing superfluous or ambiguous. Great design!

Thanks for the kind words! I designed it to be as bold and simple as possible, so it could work at button-size and up.

Our forefathers tried to keep this country from being controlled by big money by setting up three parts of the government meant to prevent the others from becoming influenced by them. We succeeded for many years, but are now failing with the House overrun by corporate bullies, the Supreme Court in their pocket, most of the Senate as well, and a president who wants to "compromise": with them. Also a candidate who is one of them himself. The love of money is still the root of all evil.

I can't tell if this is spam or just bad etiquette. Why don't you post this on the Flannagan page?
