Fraiku: Republicans

Sheep who’ll vote for a wolf
because he promises to eat
the Black ones first

Have you voted yet?
Early voting began in NC yesterday.
Check your state
and don’t vote for wolves.

    You’re in good company…..

    The whole idea – or ideas – around sheep voting for wolves is such a strong one.

    So many messages……Don’t be a sheep – make your own choice. Don’t vote for wolves – they are predators by nature. It’s plain to see what happens when sheep DO vote for wolves – and so on, and so on……

    A very, very strong concept which I hope gets picked up on widely.

    Indeed. The Public Order Bill which has just been passed here means that any ‘black sheep’ can be tagged – as livestock are…..

    And there are the wolves who prey on the people desperate to get away from danger.

    So much there Bart, in so few words.

  5. Is it any wonder that countries are more often than not governed by wolves…? since the populous are bred to be sheep… easily fleeced… heads mostly down, munching on ‘grass…’ kept in line by dogs… and if they try to leave the flock… are turned into mutton…!
