    Liberty Strips: She's hiding from US Gov't

    There is so much going on in the world that we really can't do much about. I would create strips in direct reaction to the daily issues but I just don't feel like following the mainstream media narrative so I will stick to storytelling about what I wish could happen.

    Picture this: Lady Liberty hiding from the gov't unwilling to pretend that her role as the icon of freedom is of any real substantive meaning anymore.

    Remember when we used to frown on China's human rights violations with a little moral authority behind us? Those days are over.

    Remember when we could tell a leader like Putin that he has no right to occupy and orchestrate regime change in a sovereign land. Well since our regime change activity in Libya, Iraq and failed attempt in Iran we can no longer hold a Putin to moral account.

    Post illegal drone wars, NSA Spying, wiretapping of journalists and activist has completely annihilated any moral authority our gov't had left to hold the world community up to the standard of Democracy we no longer abide by.

    Yet Liberty, she waits in the shadows... she has an idea and of course because I can write whatever I want in my strip her idea will work masterfully :)

    Peace and hair grease!
