"Give me money to fight the establishment!"
"Oops it looks like I gave all your money to the establishment!"

So you delete comments and will possibly block any users that dissagree with your political views? I am sorry but for someone so talented that is incredibly hypocritical. I hope you'r view of the world changes with time and age but seeing as you are Canadian that probably won't happen. So go ahead and delete this one too. Just know: In my own oppinion you are better off donating money from your art to charity organizations that actually do charity, not some rich asshole who thinks everybody without a six digit sum in their debit card are worthless. Cheers mate! Also I dont plan on comming back or spamming your gallery any more so you choosing to hide this further proves how irrational the Left is.

Actually I deleted you comment because it's sole purpose was to start a fight. I have my political views as you do - which is our right. I do not have the right to start fights with people because I don't agree with them. I wish you the best.

Actually I need to fill that blank in: I could really care less and starting a fight was not my intention. I merely wanted to give my two cents on this since I dont like the guy. Again you'r oppinion is your own, dosent really hurt or benefit me. But again you are better off giving that money to people who need it.

Thank you. You don't have to like Mr. Sanders. I can donate and raise money any place I choose and for any cause (which I do in numerous cases). You have that right as well. Good luck to you and I wish you the best.

YAY. You brought a smile to my face today. He is the only hope I have--although I haven't always agreed with his choices--for the future.

Thank you:) I don't agree completely with all his stances. I believe we do have to slowly get off fossil fuels but not building pipelines (as long as they are environmentally monitored) is not the answer until you can make electric cars financially feasible. Set a deadline date - maybe 20 - 30 years - to stop producing gas cars and give the technology a chance to be realistic. I love everything else he stands for - I think the grass roots approach is the only way to do it and thank god we are seeing it. I think we are going to see very good results in the next 2-4 years.

Amazing tribute to an amazing man. I really like how you drew him with the headphones off, as if he is listening for the voices of the people, which is further underscored by the button reading "For All." Excellent work; I really love how your "Listen" series holds profound meaning. :)

His donations website is still up and is geared towards small donations. Keep him inspired and give him support. Social media is well and good but we all need to take the grass roots approach.

I am so with you on that, Brent.  I've given a fair amount of money, attended his rallies and have invested time in local efforts.  But, your reminder is always welcome.

Canada is the most together country on this planet.  As your climate warms up from all the global weirdness I just might have to escape this madness here in the US and move there.  <g>

I don't know about that. We just has a mass shooting in a mosque in Quebec last night. The attitude of racial scapegoating (which is now encouraged by the US president) is on both side of the borders - made acceptable to certain factions. Sad time - keep fighting up there, we'll do it down here.
