    My mom gave me this button which is marked "1976 SWIB Industries, Inc". I wear it on the 4th of July and also when I vote. My polling place is one block away (so great!!) and in 2008 they asked me to remove this button because it had political party reference. Actually, they were just testing me and I passed. I knew when George Washington was elected our first president in 1789, there were no political parties!

    Political parties first emerged during Washington’s first term in office with the Alexander Hamilton’s Federalist Party in 1791 and in the following year, the formation of the Anti-Federalist Party or Democratic-Republicans under the leadership of Thomas Jefferson.

    And the rest is HISTORY!

      Yes Caperkid, I've always been a Geo Wash fan. My mom loves to embarrass me when I was 5, opened the birthday card and said "wow 2 pictures of George!" Will I ever live that one down? Anyway, after those 2 dollars....Mom started giving me George Washington stuff. I had a large print of him by Samuel Parkman that was in every school in the 1950's. A metal bank, and some cool books with history about him and Mt. Vernon. Yes, my Mom was pretty cool too to give me all that.

      Thank you aka John - I didn't realize it was old until just now. It is true that I wear it on 4th of July and when I vote. I can tell you love history too.

      yeah 1976 seems like... well not 41 years ago lol, I'm happy to hear you wear it.
      I do like History and part of the reason for liking buttons as they show a tiny snap shot of history, Some almost gets lost in time Like a RFK button that reads "Trade Bobby for the Pueblo" or Reagan Laughing that reads "We begin bombing in five minutes" many like that if you weren't around or didn't pay much attention to the news the quotes wouldn't mean anything but are little snap shots.
