Description of the painting via Youtube:

Against the background of a darkening sky, all of the past Presidents of the United States gather before the White House, as if to commemorate some great event. In the left hand corner of the painting sits a man. That man, with his head bowed appears distraught and hopeless as he contemplates his future. Some of the past Presidents try to console him while looking in the direction of the modern Presidents as if to say, "What have you done?" Many of these modern Presidents, seemingly oblivious to anything other than themselves, appear to be congratulating each other on their great accomplishments. In front of the man, paper trash is blowing in the wind. Crumpled dollar bills, legislative documents, and, like a whisper—the U.S. Constitution beneath the foot of Barack Obama.

Jon McNaughton is an artist focusing on religious and patriotic themes. He resides in Utah. View his site here.


  1. The trampling of the Constitution began a long time ago. Tiny amounts at first, and with each and heavier footprint others were emboldened. Until now, under Obama, the Constitution can no longer shield us from the smoke and mirrors.

    But as I said, it began a long time ago. Some historians might even say it all began before the ink was dry.

    1. Les, I noticed that the top progressives (including Bush, etc) are on the right side cheering Obama on.

    2. I think the depiction of GWB holds a lot of truth. He looks a little conflicted, but ultimately, he stands on the wrong side of history.

    3. Exactly, I noticed the same thing.

  2. The first time I saw that picture it gave me chills.

    1. Chilling indeed. My last sentence was for effect, obviously the drafters and future lawmakers and presidents did not trample their work.

      The point is that BHO was preceded by others that trampled the Constitution, including GWB who gave us the patriot act.

      All that aside the underlying inference is chilling as well.

    2. Yes, the founders struggled with the same issues we struggle with. The conflict between liberty and tyranny goes as far back as the historian's eye can see.
