I watched all three movies when I was a kid.

They are...sort of like a time capsule. They were renegade then and I would imagine still are. Very hippy commune type stuff but definitely a statement against abuse by police and abuse toward American Indians. A message of pacifism on one side and also the symbol of a super protector Billy Jack who can fight back.

There were three movies if I remember. Haven't seen them in a good long while.

I believe it was 1967. It was

I believe it was 1967. It was the hippies against the establishment back then. Back then the liberals wanted to stop the viet nam war and use drugs. Now they want more free stuff, more war, and less freedom.

Ah, the memories

Holding hands with the incomparable L.L. on my first date, ever. I don't remember a lot of the movie, but the song and the hand holding were unforgetable.

I did not know

you and LegalizeLiberty were dating! ;)

Love or fear? Chose again with every breath.

Now you know!

One of my first acts of rebellion

Told Mom I was going to some other movie and watched "Billy Jack" instead.

Love or fear? Chose again with every breath.

ha ha

you rebel

I loved the movie

But Billy Jack was a commie statist.

He just thought the wrong people were in Charge.

Kung Fu was more of an individualist

Well...

Tom Laughlin is a commie statist.
Billy Jack is a cartoon idealist.
I aspire to be more like Jean and the kids at the Freedom School.

I don't think he is a statist

He was against the Iraq war,said it was worse than Vietnam, always critical of Bush, even Obama.

A classic liberal in some ways like universal healthcare, but conservative in taxes, property rights and in elections.

He was on Perots campaign once he figured out the Democrat party was a scam, then the GOP

Regarding Palin: I believe we are watching in real time the rise of the third party, which will be controlled by the powers that be from its' inception.

A great time to be a teenager!
I just watched the whole movie with a friend a couple days ago.
The song by Coven was aired quite often as I recall...

When Fascism goes to sleep, it checks under the bed for Ron Paul!

I think most requested

song between 1971-1973

Once you've seen this crap once, twice, three times...over and over again, you know how the story ends if we do nothing.
