21. DAYUM, Dustlawyer - did you see this post from Stryst?

"It's got to be part of the big game plan. Marriage equality, gender equality, racial equality, a woman's right to choose, an adult's right to put whatever substances into their body that they choose... We must be able to choose our own paths."

This is IT! We can't splinter up the pie and then go for all the slivers - when we need the whole pie!!! Seems to me that just absolutely nails it. Just boils it down all the way. And I just realized something rather ironic: it's OUR version of "Don't Tread On Me," isn't it!? "Don't Tread On ME, EITHER!!!" Now - to find a graphic... ? I'm trying to think... praying mantis or scorpion maybe? Maybe an avenging angel would be better? Sure wouldn't be one of the figureheads (Washington, Jefferson, etc) since those have been appropriated by too many of the bad guys and nut jobs. Maybe Ben Franklin? He was certainly enlightened, literate, and intellectual - and intellectually curious enough. What image would be best to depict or suggest liberals/progressives/people who believe government can/should be a force for good?
