Politics in Bizarro World

Politics in Bizarro World

A local candidate is trying to give her salary back to tax-payers. Perhaps she chose a method that’s a bit too… creative, but what’s really absurd is that politicians engage in bribery all the the time and attorney generals don’t make a peep. It’s gone on so long that it’s considered normal in the bizarre world of politics.

Here’s a quote from Free Keene. Read the whole article here.

Ward 4 City Council candidate Julia Miranda has been threatened with one to seven years in state prison by the New Hampshire Attorney General. In a “Cease and Desist Order” sent to Miranda today, the Attorney General alleges that Ms. Miranda’s offer to give away her $500 city council paychecks to randomly chosen Ward 4 voters amounts to “a direct or indirect bribe”.

Cartoon Text ( Why is this here? )
Julia Miranda: I’m going to give my own government salary back to tax-payers whether they vote for me or not!
Some Typical Politician: I constantly bribe potential constituents with money stolen using government force!

    Government does not approve of taxes being returned to their rightful owners.
    I wonder which local candidate running against Julia called the AG to complain?
    This is why America is falling. I hear it all the time “If yu want to change it then run for office.” As if that’s the only way a citizen should try to seize liberty back from the government.

    The system is the problem. Freedom lover’s can’t win the game by following the rules when the fancy-hats at the top constantly change those rules.

    Great cartoon! Once again, Dale succinctly captures the THE point of the issue at hand.

    The subtle allusions to crookedness and the NH AG as a hero in his/her own mind add a great finishing touch.

    Keep the great work coming! :)

    I finally got around to fixing the spelling error. I was getting self conscious since several other sites are now reposting the cartoon including The LRC Blog.
