Rock the Vote
Contest Directions: With less than 120 hours remaining till the election day, Obama and McCain are campaigning hard to earn all the votes they can. Remaining campaign money are used to produce the ads which explain to American voters why they should vote for one candidate and not vote for another. Campaign speeches are pretty much based on the same formula "vote for ... because..., and don't vote for... because..."
Photoshop motivational or demotivational posters encouraging (discouraging) American people to vote in this election. You can focus simply on participation (to vote or not to vote?), OR go further and create "VOTE" posters to give motivations to vote for your candidate (McCain or Obama) OR create VOTE posters with demotivations which would discourage people to give votes for the other candidate (McCain or Obama). For example your message at the lower part of your poster may say: "VOTE McCain (Obama), IF (Because) ..."
Your posters should follow the format of classic "motivational / demotivational posters" - black background, image in the middle, followed by the title word(s), and the text message below. The image in the middle has to be photoshopped, so you can not just take unaltered photo and add text to it. To recall such kind of poster design, take a look at the good examples from our demotivational poster contest. NOTE: as an exception to our rules, in this contest you are allowed to recycle any of your previous entries of FN to use it for the central image in your (de)motivational poster.

        • Simple, but effective. A couple of technical points: Clean up that fuzziness around the bangs and try giving the face a plastic look like the body (try "noise reduction," some area work with the blur brush, more red with the color balance, maybe even play with the "plastic wrap" filter).

          SACRAMENTO,California--In America, it has long been held that there is a sacred bond between the United States Government, and the People of the United States.

          That bond is the unbendable document called the Constitution of the United States, and, as I am about to embark, this bond has been broken by the Corruption of Our Central Bodies of Government, Executive, Legislature, Judiciary, Agency, and the Press.
          This means that while Americans have been kept busy with the non-essential, info-tainment of the Press, both Print and Broadcast, these bodies along with all key positions in the Government of the United States, have been subverted and replaced with loyalist Felons and Street Prostitutes as legitimate Journalists, Political Appointees, Judges, and even Entertainment Personnel.

          This means that along with the Silent Subversion of the 1st Amendment of Our Constitution, a facade of disinformation has cloaked the atrocity with unfounded fears of the necessity to increase the National Security risks assessed to convince the Citizens of the United States that loss of their personal freedoms, restriction on travel, and the production of “Fake News” in warranted to maintain the Secrecy of the Criminal Enterprise Our Government has become.

          I became aware of this situation in quite an unconventional manner.

          As I have described over the past 8 years, to United States Government agencies including the Department of Defense, Department of Justice, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Congress, the United States Senate, and News Media alike, without material response, I met over 150 Pimps, Prostitutes, and Individuals involved in criminal acts in the related to the before mentioned street crimes on the streets of Sacramento, California during the late 1980’s and early 1990’s.

          Since my involvement with these persons over a 7 year period, 2 of the persons involved in narcotics use and prostitution have become Presidents of the United States of America.

          With the addition of a First Lady, a Supreme Court Justice, State Senator, City Mayor, and County District Attorney of Sacramento, there are nearly 150 persons that have been placed, appointed, hired, or infiltrated into the Newsrooms of America.
          One could look at this as a miracle of some great proportion, but in fact, the pattern sings of racketeering, espionage, and the criminal manipulation of All Avenues of Control and Command of the United States Government and the Media.

          And, after engaging in the Pledge of Allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America ...I find this UN-Acceptable!
          The Red ‘X’ Society was formed as an Idea, to redress this wrong, and hold those accountable for this Horrific Tragedy of United States Government Miss-Management, and urge All Americans to display the Red ‘X’ until this matter is resolved in accordance with the written word of the U.S. Constitution.
