Politics in the United States of America is the most followed system of government in the entire world and these political posters say it all.
The classic Uncle Sam with the pointing finger has been re-created into a ghoulish monster from hell, as well as the evil Shredder from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. The Barack Obama “Hope” Poster is often parodied and here, includes cameos from the Pope and Luke Skywalker. The strong female who boldly says “We Can Do It” has been modernized into a real women in photographs.
The U.S. certainly has the most entertaining system of politics to watch and the effect it has on pop culture can be seen throughout these political posters.
