This is Johua A. Norton, Emperor of the United States and Protector of Mexico. He ruled from San Francisco until his death in 1880.
Although he was a self-proclaimed emperor, he took himself seriously, and he was popular enough in his "capital" that currency was issued in his name and accepted at several local businesses.
His grave was marked in accordance with his imperial title.

And I'm only in favor of an Emperor if it means we reorganize our army into cohorts and outfit everyone in lorica armor. Suitably updated with Kevlar, etc. for the modern battlefield, of course.

So Dusty you ever going to try and make a cogent argument based on facts and evidence or are you just going to keep spamming us with silly images that aren't going to change anyone's mind?
I mean I am cool with seeing the crack pot bullshit that you think is real it gives me an incite into how fucking far gone some people are.

He must be doing something right. Even foreign leaders would support him.
Hugo Chavez Says He Would Vote for Obama
By Seth Cline
October 1, 2012
President Hugo Chavez, the Venezuelan dictator who once called President George W. Bush "the devil," has endorsed Barack Obama in the 2012 presidential race, according to the Associated Press.
"If I were American, I'd vote for Obama," Chavez said in a televised interview Sunday. "And I believe that if Obama was from Caracas, he would vote for Chavez, I am positive."
Like his preferred presidential candidate, Chavez is running for re-election this year in what is expected to be a very tight presidential race for the incumbent. The Venezuelan leader—who called Bush "a drunk" who oversaw a government Chavez saw as the "first enemy" of Venezuela—has warmed towards America with Obama at the helm.
Chavez has consistently praised Obama, calling him an "intelligent man," comparing him John F. Kennedy, and dubbing him "a good guy."
"I wish we could begin a new period of normal relations with the government of the United States," Chavez said in a television interview Sunday.
For his part, Obama has maintained a safe distance from Chavez. He has approved of Venezuela's "fair and free elections" and said the country has not posed a "serious national security impact" on America, but has not gone as far to endorse its leader.
Chavez is running for re-election despite continuing health concerns—he has spent much of the past two years undergoing cancer treatment. Venezuelans will determine whether he reigns another six years as president at the polls on Oct. 7.

perhaps you should consider applying some of that focus, as you analyze national politics. Putting up nothing really, but paranoid propaganda, that doesn't speak to reality, makes you look like a tool. Not just to a liberal like myself, but all across the board.
Bullshido has plenty of conservative types. You don't have to act loopy to gain their approval. Just being full of ****, without substantive content, doesn't endear you to them, b/c if you're cooking, no one needs someone else to come and take a **** on the stove, even if there's a disagreement about recipes.
Bush wasn't a nazi, and Obama isn't a communist. There's a more rational sensible middle ground, within the bounds of commonly observable reality, within which to critique these men.
