  •  Pat Paulsen for President, 1968,72,80,88,92,96 (6+ / 0-)

    His campaign rallying cry, "We Can't Stand Pat".
    Presidential campaign slogan: "I've upped my standards. Now, up yours."

    When asked if he believed in the right to bear arms: "No, I believe in the right to arm bears."

    And from this video, "If you're old enough to get arrested, you're old enough to carry a gun"

      to the address at the end of the clip.

      There is truth on all sides. The question is how much.

        This was during the peak buildup of Vietnam. We DFH's were the enemy. Literally, we were Communists; dirty Commie Pinko Communists.

        1967 was the year that shaped my social and political positions for the rest of my life. I had forgotten just how good and bad things had been. A quick review of the Wiki machine for the events of 1967 reminded me all too well. The summer race riots were the worst ever. This is how and why we DFH's are so passionate about these very same issues that continue to infest our country.

        Hundreds of people died at the hands of our government inside our own borders. But little was done because most of the victims were poor or militant Black citizens. Or DFH's. "Love it or leave it" was the mantra of the Right. This doesn't include the thousands who were dying for the illegitimate war in Vietnam. And the assassinations that happened before and after 1967. MLK was murdered in 1968. Kent State students were murdered in 1970.

        The Smothers Brothers TV show was VERY controversial. The right wingers threatened the brothers and Pat Paulsen. These were not good times.

      Should The Use Of Firearms Be Restricted?
      March 19, 1967

      Many people today are suggesting that restrictions be placed on the purchase and ownership of firearms.

      No one questions that these are good solid citizens which combines to this adherence. But they are grossly misguided for these tools or else they are trouble-making Communists. But we respect them...and we will fight to the death against their right to express their opinions.

      First, let us define our terms. We are merely talking about simple firearms...pistols, rifles, and bazookas. So let's as not to the parges for slare all.

      Secondly, I ask you what is our most cherished right since pioneer days? The right for every man, woman and child to carry a gun.

      This is not a statement of kration but has a man to meetings that even a child could understand...if you are old enough to get arrested, you're old enough to carry a gun.

      A gun is a necessity. Who knows when you're walking down the street and you'll spot a moose? I feel these instructions are a plot in the sporadic turn for a listing. We at the Smothers Brothers Corporation consider this a personal on our integrity. Now personally, I myself carry a gun.

      DO I LOOK UNSTABLE????

      Let us not be ledmess by those who would mislead us. Let no man take away our liberties.

      Stand up and be counted...Let's preserve our freedom to kill.

          Thank you,

          Patrick L. Paulsen, V.P.
