Regarding voter suppression

Ordinary people forget, or they didn’t pay attention in their high school civics classes:

“Governments…deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, —That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of their ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it….”  –Declaration of Independence

In other words, citizens are being denied a basic right by the very institutions they’ve created, and by the leaders to whom they’ve given certain rights and the privilege of representing them. Wake up people: Government is your creation and serves at your pleasure. Politicians are your servants. Go into your polling places. Overturn their tables. Shove aside their lackeys. You decide, not them! Vote the beggars out!

I used a reporter's techniques to create documentary comic strip series including "Stan Mack's Real Life Funnies," for the Village Voice, "Stan Mack's Out-Takes," for Adweek magazine, and "Stan Mack's Dispatches," for The New York Times. I graduated from the Rhode Island School of Design, and was the art director of The New York Times Sunday Magazine. I've written a number of non-fiction graphic books including "Janet & Me," "The Story of the Jews," "Heartbreak and Roses" (with Janet Bode), and, with Susan Champlin, two historical graphic novels, "Road to Revolution!" and "Fight for Freedom." "Taxes..." was fun because i approached it like a reporter traveling back in time to cover the Revolution.
