    Give cash directly to the voters and don’t wast it on advertising.

    Regarding panel 3: This is why Herbert Hoover wasn’t reelected in ‘32. When a man is drowning, you toss him a life preserver; you don’t just say, “Well, I hope you learn how to swim in the next few seconds.”

    We can see in panel 4 what the honest approach in panel 3 will gain any politician. The only people who understand panel 3’s message are the immigrants.

    If Trump would give out free money like that, I’d vote for him…

    VOTE GARY JOHNSON! He’s not a crook, and he’s not a moron, and he’s not a cartoon character!

    Clever. Give the people what they want… and then swindle them from it. That’s one of the oldest tricks in the book, and people still fall for it.

    Are the stars intentionally done incorrectly on this? They should be staggered, not directly under each other in line.

    I feel sorry for the American people, Seriously this is a train wreck. Trump is a buffoon, a pervert, has no mouth filter (which is what can start wars) and is unfit for the office. Hillary and Bill both belong in jail for numerous criminal offenses too long to list here…maybe even including having their adversaries bumped off. Gary Johnson is totally ignorant of everything outside of his own little world, and he wants to raise the retirement age to mid ‘70s. Jill Stein has her pet agendas — LGBT, alternative energy, women’s rights, etc. — but not much else, and she doesn’t stand a ghost of a chance of winning anyway. I just shake my head. Are you kidding me? This is the best your nation can come up with? None of the above. Do Over!

    Read a great article this week saying that if Evan MacMullin takes Utah—and he might well—and if Trump and Clinton tie in the Electoral College, throwing it to the House, which is run by Republicans but who have no love for Trump, it could actually happen that they vote in MacMullin as President. And the day after, three hundred million people would be going, Evan WHO?!

    I guess Pig is trying to look like a wise adviser to the Rat campaign with those glasses. Or has his eyesight deteriorated?

    Rat’s crowd of admiring voters seems pretty like any gang of voters: what’s in it for me?! Alas….

    @Phatts California:I’m voting for Gary too. Good to see someone else who’s not afraid to vote for the one candidate who has consistently been honest with the public and has some solutions to the issues our country is facing. There’s a reason he’s polling so well with the military, independents, and young college graduates. Just ignore the Clinton-bots and Trumpsters – the best vote you can make is the one for the candidate you truly believe in.

    Whoa I think he be a Democrat or even more liberal.

    Problem is, I NEVER get any of this free stuff Democrats talk about. I guess cause I work is my problem, so then just having a job means I don’t qualify for free stuff.
