If you came of age in the '90s, your life was shaped by turmoil. The Gulf War stared, the USSR ended, a compound in Waco was sieged, the Federal Building in Oklahoma City was bombed, and AIDS became an epidemic. In the face of all that, we learned the importance of living for NOW...and our culture reinforced that, perhaps no better than in the smash musical that taught us there is "no day but today."

Sensing that the American public felt pushed-aside by the outgoing Democratic administration, the GOP made a push during their 1972 convention to convince voters that they -- and, in particular, Richard Nixon -- were in tune to the everyday plights of the populace.

During the 1976 primary, incumbent President Gerald Ford faced a surprisingly strong challenge from former California governor (and actor) Ronald Reagan; so strong, in fact, that the GOP candidate had not yet been decided going into that year's convention (something that has not happened again in the 40+ years since). Eventually, Ford became the nominee and lost the general election to Jimmy Carter; Reagan, meanwhile, ran again in 1980...defeating Carter in a landslide and becoming one of the GOP's most prolific and popular Presidents.

The '60s were a wild time to be alive! The sexual revolution was in full swing, and a generation distrustful of the government formed a counter-culture the valued art, music, and free love over and above norms that would make them tools of the traditional capitalist culture. At the same time, not all was well in the world. The war in Vietnam raged on, to mixed sentiment at home. "Make Love, Not War" became a rallying phrase of the anti-establishment peace movement much to the chagrin of the older generation. Upon seeing young protestors take the slogan to the streets of California, Ronald Reagan famously remarked: "Those guys look like they can't make either of both." Ouch.

Prior to entering politics and becoming the 39th President of the United States, Jimmy Carter was a simple peanut farmer...a fact used both for and against him during his 1976 campaign. This image -- that of a big-toothed, grinning peanut -- was pervasive in the run-up to the election, used on all types of political paraphernalia from buttons to signs and everything in-between. The newest member of our STUMP by HOTBUTTON retro tee collection, this shirt bears that original design replicated to the smallest detail.
