Uncle Sam is hoping to return the GOP

This will be my last post on It's been great to share my work with this unique and engaged audience.

It's sort of fitting that this is the last cartoon I'll be posting. When I was asked to contribute to BestThinking, it was because I was more conservative than many political commentators. While that remains the case, most of my cartoons over the last several years have mocked Republicans, and especially Donald Trump. That's not because I've become more liberal, it's because what has become conservationism has become so radical, there is little room for reasonable pragmatism.

I feel like Uncle Sam in this cartoon returning the defective party to the store. Fiscal conservatism, responsible foreign policy, limited government and strong moral values are principles I believe in. I just wish the modern day GOP believed in them too.
