The symbolism of chains on the backs of everyday Americans in this artistic depiction of America's slavery to debt is very accurate, as are the smiling faces of most people who unwittingly smile at and cheer on the very leaders who continue to destroy America with massive debt, refusing to curtail their own greed. Why are we smiling and patting leaders on the back? If we want reforms in this country, doesn’t the squeakiest of all wheels get the grease? Wake up America- your country has been stolen from you. Your country has been infiltrated while we blindly sing the National Anthem and talk about how patriotic we all are. Your country has been filled with corruption and greed while we remain silent so we don’t offend anyone and possibly tarnish our reputations. Wake up America; your country which was the home of the brave and the land of the free has been overrun by criminals, by thugs in suits that have been educated by elitists wielding scepters made of lies whose goal is to further enslave you while you sleep. Wake up America, you and I are following leaders that are marching us off a very high cliff as we smile and laugh and think everything is fine, that someone else will do the necessary heavy lifting. Where is the call to arms? Where is the outrage in the public square that refuses to let the elite media shut us up, because we surround THEM. Where is the modern day Paul Reveres warning us that the Democrats have been completely infiltrated and are Progressives which is a code word for Marxist, and they are acting subversively with great cunning and skill in the MSM, in the largest Corporations in America and in Congress and at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. Their main weapon, like the "father of lies" himself, is DECEPTION.
The enemy is inside the camp.Everyone needs to join the fight then we must enlist others to pledge their lives, fortunes and sacred honor as we have become willing. The time is past short, it is the bottom of the ninth inning, and we are ALL up to bat. - W.E.
We are enslaved to our debt. Wake up, America! Before it is too late...
Every man, woman and child in America is enslaved to the national debt. As an artist, I have painted my vision of the dire circumstances that surround us. Now, more than ever, each American must make a choice: we must unlock the shackles that enslave us, or will we lose our freedom. It is my hope and prayer that America will "wake up" before it is too late.
Those who are familiar with my work know that I like to use symbolism and metaphor to engage the viewer. See if you can find and decipher the many symbols in this image by visiting http://www.jonmcnaughton.com
In the painting I have intentionally hidden six keys that represent solutions that will release us from the chains of economic and political bondage. Find these keys and share them with as many Americans as you can. If we don't "wake up" future generations may not know what it means to be free.
