:bulletred: Do you live in the United States? (Or have an interest in US politics?)
:bulletblue: Do you hate having liars in positions of power?
:bulletred: Want to do something about it?

:new: New rules! See below! (This is the contest formerly titled F*ck You, Nazi!)

The KeepThemHonest group is holding a contest!

What you'll win!

Draw a simple comic strip (stick-figures are fine!) for a chance to win 200 points and a feature!

If you'd like to contribute, but don't want to enter a comic, note me (woohooligan) about contributing points, features or whatever other prize you'd like to contribute.

How to Enter!

It's easy! :happybounce:

1. Create a funny comic strip about one of these three articles: :new:
:bulletblue: Death Panels! Obamacare will kill us all!
:bulletblue: Tenessee Senator says AIDS came from sex with monkeys!
:bulletblue: Lamar Smith on SOPA!

2. Link to the article you chose in the artist description

3. Submit it to the Stick It To the Man folder of the KeepThemHonest group gallery

Anyone may enter. You do not need to be a member of the group. Your political affiliation also doesn't matter : left, right, center, whatever. Submissions will be checked just to make sure they meet the very minimal requirement that they are comic strips and include one of those 3 articles linked above.

Spread the word!

Fav this announcement and share it with your friends! And check back here for further details like the deadline, etc.

Awesome, Thanks! :D

I unfortunately haven't had much time to promote this contest recently because shortly after I posted it, our bank told us we needed to buy a house like NOW and that it had to be under $65k cash and need no major repairs... and there's no way for me to get any kind of a mortgage because I have no credit, so we're in a really stressful situation trying to find an impossible house that doesn't seem to really exist. But hopefully once this insanity passes, I'll be able to promote this contest again. :nod:

FYI: Contests with end dates tend to get more entries!!

Hello, I am writing to you on behalf of #AnotherContestGroup to inform you that due to the influx of ‘pending ending’ contests (contest with no set end date) our staff are having problems keeping track of the updates and there for we have decided to terminate featuring such contests. We are going through these contests today informing their hosts of the situation and requesting that once a set end date is set please let us know so we can feature the contest in our other journals. We thank you for your understanding and apologies for any inconvenience this may cause. We wish you luck with your contest.

Regards =missimoinsane on behalf of

Thanks, Skulkey. Yeah, it's still ongoing. I wanted to make sure there were a couple different artists in it before I set a deadline on it. I've got 2 more artists who've promised to submit something soon. I'll assign a deadline once I've got a 2nd person submitted.

I'm pretty sure notes to groups don't show up in the admin's personal notes in general. Seems like something that could be improved, maybe one of us should go suggest it in the DA forum.

wow, I haven't drawn anything in so long. But I sure got fired up about SOPA- I'll attempt a stick-figure something. Thanks for dragging me out of my fractal comfort-zone. ^^

Not yet. I wanted to generate some interest before I set a deadline... and now I'm about to change the rules of the contest and limit it to just 3 specific topics. Are you thinking about entering?
Reply
:iconzabani:
zabani Featured By Owner Feb 7, 2012  Student General Artist
Yup have some ideas in my derpy head :) :D Especially if it involves ACTA or SOPA. I am not so into the rest of the topics except maybe the economy crisis. Partly:P

I can appreciate your motivations, Ike, but I gotta be honest ... whenever people lament how "extreme" and "aggressive" modern American political dialogue can be, I always wonder: in comparison to what? People seem to be laboring under the misapprehension that political dialogue in this country was actually "civil" at some point, which is not entirely accurate.

Not trying to put down your contest, but I figured it was worth pointing out.

Thanks, Dennis.

I'm making a comparison to other countries like Canada and/or based on recent research that shows public opinion becoming increasingly polarized over the course of the past 30 years. [link]

I'm not talking so much about what is being said (which is what the video you posted addresses) as I am about the fact that it's being said with greater frequency and over much smaller issues. People in Canada laugh when they hear things like Sarah Palin referring to "death panels" because their politicians would never dare say anything like that for fear of being laughed out of office. Here in the US, Palin's "death panels" comment was met with open arms not only by the news media, but by a large swath of the public, including my mother. :stare:

So I honestly believe that if polarization can be put down in other countries like it is in Canada, then we can do it here too.

Fair enough. I don't think Canada is exactly the paragon of political kumbayaism, but I take your point.

I don't need it to be kumbayah, but it'd be nice to get to a place where the news isn't describing "Armageddon! A total government shutdown!" every week (particularly when there's never been an actual threat of a total government shutdown)... I do remember a time when, even within my lifetime, it would have been surprising to hear that statement... now it's like "oh, is it Thursday already?"

This is *meganwayxo from #AnotherContestGroup, and I'd like to inform you that we've found and added your contest to our listing! The group also features results and offers prizes so note #AnotherContestGroup if interested in more information.

=missimoinsane does a monthly news article, which contains all current contests each month. You can find these listings in our main journal, “Welcome & Contest Information.” We try to post this information in our poll once the news article is up so our watchers are notified of this – perhaps join the group if you're not already a member for this and more information.

Your contest, as far as I can see, does not have a deadline – that is, not an actual day but an approximation or an unknown date. Therefore, it will be featured in our “pending deadlines” journal. This means that your contest may not get as much exposure as a contest with a deadline, as people tend to look at contests with deadlines more than contests without. When you have a deadline for your contest, please let the group know.

I hope your contest is a success!

*meganwayxo
