This library in Michigan took the Teabaggers efforts to their logical conclusion, and won!

Imagine tax breaks for off shoring using images of Dickensian England of beggars fighting for jobs that pay a bowl of food.

Reductions in taxes showing the bridges collapsed due to lack of maintenance.

Cuts to regulation showing the destroyed towns from fertilizer and petrochemical explosions.

Cuts to Federal budget via sequestration showing contaminants going into our food as there are no inspectors to stop them.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
