    Satan (AKA Emperor Palpatine) is located between Alexander Hamilton and Mr. Hollywood.

    The backdrop of the Capitol and the Supreme Court building is impossible. It would take some sort of reality-warping power to move the buildings into that alignment.

      You've got Jesus, Satan, and the undead Ben Franklin wandering around and THAT'S what broke your suspension of disbelief?

    I like McNaughton's comments on the criticisms his painting has received. This quote – "Not only have I received flack for this painting from Liberals, but also from the Right as well. Why did you include JFK? Why Lincoln? Why Teddy Roosevelt? I painted this picture to reflect my personal feelings about America. This is not a Republican painting." – is hilarious to me; he's all but admitting that the Republican Right aren't claiming Lincoln and TR anymore, if he's getting criticism for their inclusion.

    In commenting on JFK, Mr. Willis asserts that right wingers – such as the artist fought against the civil rights movement tooth and nail. In actuality 70 percent of republicans in congress voted FOR the civil rights amendment – as opposed to the mere 30 percent of democrats that supported it. Don't forget, the south was largely DEMOCRAT at the time… I hate stereotypes! (AND revisionist pseudohistorians…)

    Awesome painting I love it. What a blessing to be able to live in a country that truly was founded under God's hand.

    I wonder how many of the right wing Christians will stop praising this artwork when they find out that Jon McNaughton is a mormon.I admit the painting is very detailed and Mr McNaughton has some obvious talent. However, I question his interpretations.

    A little late, but it should be noted that, prior to the passage of the Civil Rights Act by a Democratic president chased away Southern Democrats who were then deliberately lured over to the Republican side by Nixon's blatantly racist Southern strategy (chasing away the Northern Republicans and effectively causing the parties to each do a complete 180), the Republican Party was the party of Northern, college educated, civil rights promoting liberals who were trying to keep big business/plantations from having an undue say in government, while the Democrats were the Southern slave/plantation owners who attempted to seceed from the Union because the tarriffs designed to protect American businesses was hurting the trade of Southern Plantations.IOW, the Republicans were Left Wing and the Democrats were Right.

    I thank God, for this great artiest and for showing him what to paint. This most beautiful painting is indeed an act of God! This painting depicts the total truth as to how this Republic came about. It was indeed Christ, that raised up these great men to bring about the Constitution that made this country so great!! There are so many of you out there that are totally anti Christ. Why? Can't you see that it is because so many has turned away from God, that this world is in such decay!! God bless this great man, Jon McNaughton, for his great work. I look at this painting and I can feel the spirit of God, flow through ever fiber of my body and sole!!!!!!!!!! If you people won't to save your self's and this great country, than you' need to turn to God! Other wise this country is going to be swept clean and it's destruction is going to start soon. Repent people or you will surely see much destruction and death such as the world has never seen before. You will pay for all your immorality! The seventh seal is about to be broken!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
