The War on Poverty and the Civil Rights Act of 1964
His birthday is a state holiday in his home state of Texas. As of 2012, he was the last incumbent President eligible to run for reelection who didn't. He was the last Vice President to vacate the Vice Presidency before ratification of the 25th Amendment to the U. S. Constitution, so he was the...

What inspired Johnson's war on poverty was that he knew what it was like to live in poverty from his childhood, and he understood suffering and he believed in social action. He felt that a wealthy, powerful government could and should try to improve the lives of its citizens.

The Vietnam War took attention way from the aims of his GreatSociety.
LBJ was born near Stonewall, Texas
Personally, I don't think that he was a good president. Now, I base this opinion on more than his presidency; I also base it on his political life as a whole. Although he may have made good decisions politically at times, I don't like him at all. He was all about power and politics and not the...
Every US president has to do some "one" thing to establish his legacy, a few examples: 1. Washington was the FIRST US president; that's his legacy (no one can ever claim that one). 2. Jackson was the ONLY US president to ever pay off the US national debt. 3. Lincoln preserved the union; but people...

Johnson was re-elected in 1964 but could have run again in 1968 . He declined to do so because of protest about the Vietnamese War even within his own party. Anti-war candidates Gene McCarthy and Bobby Kennedy were doing very well in the early primaries and Johnson could see that even if he was...
