Pinback button promoting Wendell Willkie for president, 1940.

Republicans in 1940 sought to portray the contest between President Roosevelt, who was seeking an unprecedented third term, and corporate executive and political newcomer Wendell Willkie, as one over liberty and democracy itself (with the implication that Roosevelt was after dictatorial power). This button expresses the sentiment, comparing 1940 to 1776.
