: LHIA , with all due respect, that was a long time ago and since you were around then you must recall that it was a liberal democrat by the name of LBJ who imitated the Vietnam War Draft so most of the long haired men opposed him and his party at that particular time. how many young men had their gorgeous manes sheared by a military barber at that time. probably hundreds of thousands.
: I would say that the 1960s long haired men were probably the first wave libertarians, not liberals or conservatives. they believed in freedom.
I would mention that you should do some research.
There were a number of republicans today who, when it came
time for them to serve in Viet Nam wiggled out of it.
Look up the Chicken Hawk data base.
(check out how Dick Chaney, Rush Limbaugh, etc.
got out of going to Viet Nam.
Also, when you're not eating lunch, look up how Ted Nugent
got out of being drafted.
