Dear XXXXX,

I am guessing you have seen the t-shirts for sale around town with that slogan and image on it. The image was actually created as part of a postcard series by an artist named Greg Leichner in 1994. The artist moved here from New Mexico and according to reports tried to use the image to launch a campaign for President. I can't find any evidence of a real group or organization by that name.

Here are some links that discuss the artist and his work:

Thanks for the very interesting question!
