If I Were 21 I’d Vote for Willkie — Wendell Willkie, the 1940 Republican presidential nominee, who lost to FDR.

Guns Don’t Kill People, People Kill People — The NRA slogan.

A — I will use this Anarchist button forever if I need it for a ScuttleButton puzzle.  And it seems like I have been.

Where’s the Loot? — Presumably, a play on the “Where’s the beef” Wendy’s commercial.

So, when you combine 21 + Guns + A + Loot, you kinda get …

21 Gun Salute.  The longstanding military honor.

And the randomly-selected winner is … Jeff Katz of Brookline, Mass.  Jeff gets the coveted Political Junkie button.
