Longhairs gave way to Republicans with long hair

Remember back to the days between the late ’60s to mid-’70s. The days when longhairs called themselves freaks, and music was alive and inspirational. It was a time when you could trust another freak. It was a communal feeling of us against them.

Then, in 1974 or 1975, Republicans started growing their hair long and grooming it. The freaks died out along with their music, and disco ruled the land.

For those who were wondering, now you know.
