It is needless to say that original Uncle Sam from 1812 was one of the most successful propaganda examples in modern history. We’ve collected some original variations of Uncle Sam’s personality performed by modern artists. Hopefully this will become a good inspiration for you guys to go vote in tomorrow’s Elections.
