The causes that Paul has advocated over the years have shown him to be a lifelong supporter of progressive causes. Unlike many of his peers, Paul has never forgotten where he came from, and this humble everyman nature has kept him artistically grounded.
In an interview he once gave, Paul discussed his old songwriting partner John Lennon and revealed that one of Lennon’s songs should have been sung by fans to oust the notorious US President Richard Nixon from The White House, as he was the antithesis of McCartney’s generation.

During the 2002 interview with Hot Press, Paul was asked if he was satisfied with the message of peace and love contained in his music. “I realized that somewhere along the way this idea of giving a good vibe off, giving a good message, crept in,” he responded. “I’m not sure where. It just crept in — we didn’t mean to do it — just something in the ’60s.”

He then suggested that this message might have been subconsciously influenced by Elvis Presley. “‘Cos we’d been listening to Elvis and ‘Heartbreak Hotel,'” he explained. “It felt great but there wasn’t necessarily, like, a message.”

The Liverpool native then turned his attention to how the fraught political atmosphere of the ’60s bled into The Beatles’ songs: “But then with ‘All You Need Is Love ‘and ‘Let It Be’ and things like that, I think it was probably the turmoil that we were going through and which the generation was going through, that suddenly there came this need for these songs”.

Of this need to spread the gospel of peace, Paul specifically mentioned The Plastic Ono Band’s 1969 single ‘Give Peace a Chance’, which was written by John but originally credited to the Lennon–McCartney partnership. 

Paul said: “And then when John did things like ‘Give Peace a Chance’ there became very much this physical need for people to have something to sing at the White House and get Nixon out and end the Vietnam War”. 

"So, I am very happy about that. I really like that. It makes you feel good. People come up to me in the street, no matter where I go, y’know, and they’ll say, “Oh, you saved me with your music”  Or whatever – y’know, some kid, some college kid. love that, but it wasn’t anything we planned really".
