draft-resistance

An old button from 1967 when the U.S. war on Viet Nam was raging. LBJ, who had run as a “peace candidate” in 1964, was president of the US. Once elected, LBJ dropped his peace candidate drag and advocated escalation of the imperialist slaughter to “save face” in Asia. Young draftees responded with the slogan “I’d rather save my ass than Johnson’s face.”
