Historical Question

I have a question for those of you that are older than me.

Why did so many who opposed the Vietnam War, and disliked the government, vote for the Democrats who started the war, continued the war, and were in favor of more government rules and regulations?

  3. AS someone who has seen this, by reason of my age, I have asked the same question.

    1. Although that is undoubtedly correct, my question is what is their rational for their seemingly inconsistent positions.

  5. And the ones who were protesting back then NOW run the government.
