Help me win some money, won't cost you anything but a little time.

I entered a contest sponsored by the Illinois Humanities Council and The MacArthur Foundation called Looking At Democracy, and reworked one of my Blog Against Theocracy cartoons.
The Looking@Democracy challenge is offering a total of $100,000 in prize money for short, provocative media submissions designed to spark a national conversation about how we can all come together to strengthen American democracy. Here’s how the competition works: Create and send us short digital media content that either: (a) Tells a story about why government is important to our lives, or (b) Tells how we might together strengthen American democracy. Your submission can come in many formats such as short videos, audio stories, animation, music videos, public service announcements, infographics, graphic art, even Facebook and iPhone apps. They all just need to be digital so they can be shared electronically– the rest is up to YOU!
There's a "People's Choice" award of $5000, and I'd really, REALLY appreciate your vote."People's Choice" voting for entries begins May 6 and runs through May 16. Be sure to spread the word, and only vote once.

Voting is free and easy, and won't take much time. Visit the page with my submission, "Truth or Consequences". On the right side of the page is a red button that says "VOTE". Click on it, and they will ask you sign up and log in with your email address. I'd really appreciate it if you'd vote for my cartoon and spread the word! Thanks!

Tells how we might together strengthen American democracy.

I guess they're not asking for pitchforks and tumbrels, but that's my opinion, man.

Its not very clever,insightful or anything like that. I don't fear a theocracy in America. I doubt any mildly in touch with reality sorts fear that. We won't lose abortions,we will likely get gay marriages, and gay ppl can join the military and kill and rape 12 year old Japanese/Korean girls just like straights can. I don't see no theocracy here.
