    a trigger-happy warmonger, a nuclear madman and the candidate who couldn't win," Mr. Goldwater recalled.

    However, nothing could be more than the truth.

    As he had been during the Korean War, Mr. Goldwater was bitterly critical of what he considered to be a "no win" policy in Vietnam, and he was an early advocate of bombing Hanoi and laying mines in the harbor at Haiphong, positions that were called outrageous at the time.

    He ended racial segregation in his family department stores, and he was instrumental in ending it in Phoenix schools and restaurants and in the Arizona National Guard.

    A fascist? Hardly. He was another pro-liberty freedom loving person who was attacked unmercifully by the left.

    Barry Goldwater -
    On gays in the military:
    "Everyone knows that gays have served honorably in the military since at least the time of Julius Caesar."
    "You don't have to be straight to be in the military; you just have to be able to shoot straight."

    Gulf of Tonkin led to the Wars Powers Act which gave the President more power and leeway to wage wars on whims. It actually legalized war for 90 days.

    The War Power Act allowed people like this to wage fucked up wars for his cronies' gain at the expense of liberty and economic prosperity.

    Then a hero came along and said this.

    Yet, use the War Power Act for another war for oil.

    Goldwater a warmonger? I don't think so. His opponent, LBJ was, and his actions has led to even more useless war for profit by the bureaucrats, bankers, and corporatists at the expense of the people.

    AuH20's character was savaged by the media, without doubt.

    Who knows how this nation might have been different had he been elected?
