"Both of our decks function
in the same way that the Pentagon's "Iraqi Most Wanted" cards
do, but in this case, they relate to conservative politicians and failed
presidential policies that effect citizens, children, veterans, and
the members of our armed forces." Jerry says. Every card contains
a quote or news item so that people can look up the facts themselves
and understand why this President and the representatives surrounding
him should not be re-elected."
The couple has also
begun documenting their efforts on video, hoping to collect enough footage
to produce a documentary about their experiences as they promote their
cards and interact with voters at rallies and other events thoughout
the election year.
The couple utilized the four
suits of the deck to identify the most pressing issues of the upcoming
"The Spades in the deck
reveal the President's alliance with the extreme right, special interests,
claims he served in the military when he was actually AWOL and the fiasco
in Florida where his allies helped seal his theft of the presidency. Hearts
describe Bush's budget slashes that effect children, families, veterans,
health care and the victimized families of 9/11. Diamonds recount the
cronyism, corruption and sweetheart deals granted to big campaign contributors
and corporate interests while U.S. citizens foot the tax burden. Clubs
cover the war in Iraq resulting in thousands of combined U.S. and Iraqi
casualties while the U.S. credibility hangs in the balance regarding the
unfound "Weapons of Mass Destruction." As for the Jokers, they
expose Bush's biggest failures regarding the "War on Terror"
and the security of all Americans.
"As the Pentagon's "Iraqi
Most Wanted" cards proved, there's no better way to "out"
the enemy than to depict it on a deck of cards," says Vasilatos.
"The playing card phenomenon has become a great way to educate
and inform people in an entertaining way. We believe our deck provides
a great resource for Democratic, Progressive and Moderate activists
to identify why regime change must begin at home this November, and
hope that they can help Senator Kerry's efforts at replacing President
Bush and restoring the honor and integrity of this country."
