He'd probably marvel at the advances in technology, civil rights, medicine and communication. If he doesn't he's an idiot.


As for Hollywood and politics? They've always been a cesspool and he was pretty vocal about it during his life

I think he would have made a great president. They say americans are cowboys right? I could see him walk into the un go up to the podium and say,"Listen up and listen good. Theres a new sheriff in town,and if you dont like it theres the door pilgrims." I would love to see him lambaste irans supreme leader in a debate.

John Wayne's not dead - he's frozen! And when we find a cure for cancer, we're gonna thaw out the Duke and he's gonna be pretty pissed off. You know why? You ever taken a cold shower? Well, multiply that by 15 million times. That's how pissed off the Duke's gonna be.

It has been over 30 years since his death. IMO politics haven't changed much, just some of the faces. If he just popped back into the living today he would probably be overwhelmed by the technology. I have lived through the changes since 1979, and there are times when I feel overwhelmed. But I also remember the politics at the time and it seems the same. I even remember conversations about the Government's intrusion into our privacy.

Yeah we had a guy named George W Bush try to act like a "cowboy" already...we all saw how that worked out.

We need more intelligent people in politics...and less cowboys

Dennis Leary... niiiiice


That being said, I think John Wayne would be happily married to some dude, living large in CA and making guest appearances on 'Off Their Rockers' with Betty White.


I kid... I kid!!!

Haha yeah he'd probably feel comfortable enough in today's society to come out publicly as the flamboyant homosexual he really always was.

Must have been hard putting on that tough guy act for so many years

Ronald reagan was a cowboy. Teddy rosevelt was too. Sometimes you need a Cowbow to make them see you mean business and who will not mince words and kiss the saudi kings hand. We are too political correct now a days. I want a president with some BALLS dang it,And no not hillary clinton with a testicle lock box.

I don't think he would like anything about it. John Wayne was known for being racist and in that era porn, drugs and gambling wasn't in your face but then John Lennon would not like anything about the present day either. So we wouldn't measure up to the expectations and hopes of either of them - How do we manage that?

George W is the one who was in bed with the Saudis.

And no, we do not need more "We're gonna get those turrists!" speeches from some backwoods idiot standing at a podium.

It's amazing how this nation glorifies stupidity

Actually it's quite interesting how many of the so called American Heros of Hollywood avoided the draft for WW2 and Vietnam by emigrating or other means

I disliked GW. He was too texan for me. Mayby he should have taken speech lessons? LOL. Anyway all presidents are just figureheads anyway so usually its the Congress and senate who are the real dummies. Personally reagan was not stupid though. HE was actually well thought out on almost all his speeches. He even asked the russian..tear down this wall. greatest moment ever in his presidency well except all the jobs he helped create that was pretty good too.

He did NOT avoid the draft, he was too old to enlist during WW2, he DID try to enlist a number of times but couldnt:

Did you know "John Wayne" was just his stage name?

His real name was (get this....) "Marion"!

Marion Robert Morrison, as I recall.
