The Cartoon Romney Should See

Here from 1943 is a blatantly propagandizing cartoon created by Disney to aid the war effort:

That was back during WWII, when everyone had a stake in the fight and nobody knew a family who hadn't lost a loved one. It was patriotic to pay your taxes and near treason to try to find ways to weasel out of it (are you listening, Mittny?)

In fact, this was one of the very last times this country was truly united... Sadly.

Wow, to think Americans were actually PATRIOTIC about paying for wars with their own money at one point. Now China loves lending us money to keep digging our grave in the catboxes of humanity... So sad.
