'Just a little bit down and the rest of your life
to pay. Why, friend, you can't afford not to own
one!' March 11, 1969 This cartoon used two of
Bill Sanders' favourite characters, John Q.
Public and a fast-talking salesman in a plaid
sports coat, to represent the debate in Congress
over the Sentinel Antiballistic Missile System.
First proposed during the Johnson Administration,
the system would deploy antiballistic missiles
(ABMs) to protect the nation's intercontinental
ballistic missiles (ICBMs) from attack as well as
protect several large urban areas. Emphasizing
its "defensive" purpose, the Nixon Administration
announced plans to add ABMs to two Minuteman
Missile bases in Montana and North Dakota and to
eventually construct ten other ABM sites around
the country. The opposition in Congress was
two-fold. Several senators, particularly Senator
John Sherman Cooper (R-Kentucky), were concerned
that the system would escalate the arms race and
perhaps violate a pending nuclear weapons treaty.
Others felt the estimated cost of 6 to 7
billion dollars over the life of the program
would siphon away money urgently needed for
domestic programs. The Congress ultimately
approved President Nixon's request for funding.

    Japan, and to limit the number of American
    casualties in bringing the war to a close.

Senator Joseph McCarthy
  • Joseph Raymond McCarthy (November 14, 1908 May
    2, 1957) was an American politician of the
    Republican Party. McCarthy served as a U.S.
    Senator from the U.S. state of Wisconsin from
    1947 to 1957. During his ten years in the Senate,
    McCarthy and his staff members became notorious
    for aggressive accusations against suspected
    Communists in the U.S. government during what
    came to be known as the Second Red Scare. His
    controversial actions resulted in the word
    "McCarthyism", which specifically described the
    intense anti-communist movement that occurred in
    America from around 1948 to the mid-1950s, when
    people in the media, in the motion picture
    industry, politics, the military and elsewhere
    suspected on disputed evidence of communist
    sympathies were subjected to what were regarded
    by many as aggressive witch-hunts. The term
    "McCarthyism" has since come to mean a government
    witch-hunt seeking to punish unapproved thoughts
    or political stances.
