The community of independent voters active on our Facebook page has been very vocal around several issues, but one that there seems to be near universal agreement on is that the money prevalent in our political system from corporations and special interest groups makes the two parties nearly indistinguishable. The parties are loyal to their corporate financial backers, and those corporate backers hedge their investments in influence by spreading their money across both parties.
This is the first in a series of political cartoons we are developing at Independent Voters of America with illustrator Damon Lacey. The goal is to provide the community of independent voters with images that represent issues/beliefs/concepts that most independent voters can agree on. Images that independent voters can share as a representation of their thinking, POV and/or indignation with the two-party status quo. Please feel free to share this. More to come.
