#062: Made In America
With this year being an election year, I've decided to give my characters some new designs. Anarchist now looks more like a libertarian hipster with his “euphoric” fedora and scarf, and Red Statist still looks like a redneck with his Trump 2016 trucker hat.
Speaking of which, as trite as this observation may be, isn't it ironic that the candidate promising to “Make America Great Again” has most of his campaign merchandise made in China? Meanwhile, Bernie Sanders is preaching equally protectionist policies, but at least he walks the walk while he talks the talk by having his campaign stuff made here in the good old U.S. of A.
Then again, logical consistency means jack diddly squat when protectionism is pure B.S.
