Government of the People

1. The issue is the unlimited spending on campaigning for elections.
2. No real people are in this cartoon.
3. Man in Orange Hat represents Average Citizens.
    Men on Left represent The Rich, Big Corporations, and Lobbyists.
4. The cartoonist's opinion is that our government is only for the rich.
5. I agree because without spending limits, the rich are able to buy influence for the        candidate of their choice. Average citizens don't have much of a say in this                      anymore.

Russia

1. The event is Russia invading Georgia, Crimea, and Ukraine.
2. No real people are in this cartoon.
3. Big Doll represents Russia.
    Small Doll represents Moldova.
4. The cartoonist's opinion is that Russia will take over Moldova next.
5. I agree because Russia is a very large and powerful country. However, Moldova has     a population of less than 4 million. Russia has already taken over bigger, stronger        countries so I don't think Moldova will be much a problem for them. It doesn't seem    like the U.S. is doing much to help either.
