An Attempt at Political Satire

These are just a few satirical takes on popular political slogans.

"Don't Tread on Me"

In a 2010 poll, only 16% of Tea Party members supported gay marriage and over half believe that too much has been made of the problems facing black people in recent years.

"Yes We Can"

Obama completely followed through on only five of his top 25 campaign promises as rated by PolitiFact.com.


 31% of the American population are both pro-life and pro-death penalty (Gallup 2010).

"God Bless America"

This one's pretty much self-explanatory. 

"One Man, One Woman"

Same-sex or other "non-traditional" marriages are often regarded as immoral by conservative Christians for "Biblical" reasons. The Bible, however, contains multiple examples of marriages that differ from the "one man, one woman" tradition (Skeptic's Annotated Bible).

  1. It's true that there are many kinds of marriages mentioned in the Bible, but one man to one woman is only kind that God instituted. (Genesis 2:23-24) The rest are simply people straying from His plan. There are Bible examples of what to do and what not to do, and taking them out of context or assigning new meanings to them like the verses mentioned above, isn't helping anyone. (eg Matthew 25 is a parable about 10 bridesmaids not brides. 1 Samuel 1 shows the strife that resulted from polygamy just like in the stories of Abraham, Jacob, Solomon etc.; Polygamy is never endorsed.)
