Can you think of a better caption for this "Angel"?

Hope & Strength? The Governor has called this communist-themed art an 'inspiring image of leadership' and a symbol of hope for our state.

Here at The Gaspee Project... we don't see it that way.

The larger issue is that this image parallels the Governor's heavy-handed, government-controlled approach to re-opening our Ocean State's economy.

The free-enterprise system, which allows businesses and employees to innovate, is the true path back to prosperity.

The portrait's official title is the "RI Angel of Hope & Strength", but we think YOU can do better. So, here's what to do:

1. Submit a better caption for XIna's poster - keep it pithy.

2. Share this page on social media.

Best caption will be announced on Friday, May 15th. Winner will receive a $100 Amazon gift card.

Make your voice heard and submit your caption today or before the submission- end-date of May 12.

    This is bad news. It’s all wrong. Clearly Communist theme with the shirt collar, hat, and facial expression. Should be “The Independent Man” with the anchor & Hope in smaller font.
