Uncle Sam: “I Want YOU!”

As I was reading various news articles and contemplating the recent laws and executive orders that have been enacted, this image came to my mind:

This truly does seem to portray what the powerful elite have transformed the American government to be and do and seek.

I find my self wondering how I ever was duped into believing that the government was about serving the people.  How many generations have accepted this stern and even vicious image and its slogan as a portrayal of the United States and her government?

It is really quite frightening to realize what it actually says.  It is perhaps even more frightening to realize that by and large we all have accepted this.
