    and what Democrats love him for that?
    It would be more correct to say RINOs hate Goldwater

    One can only hope wish Perry will be more like Goldwater
    in some values

    Hardly.

    I think you fail to realize what has changed.

    In 1964, you had a generation that grew up beleiving in government, from the New Deal to World War II to the New Frontier to the Great Society. Of course, back then, we had the economic prosperity created by free enterprise and a healthy middle class to support that kind of thing. America exported more than she imported, and therefore was drawing wealth from the rest of the world. So we could afford to be charitable with entitlements, and have big government programs.

    Goldwater in 1964 was out of sync.

    Today we are witnessing those chickens coming home to roost. The jobs have vanished as a result of globalization, corporate greed and driving down of salaries. In short, the middle class can't carry an increasingly large entitlement class on its back anymore, as the costs of those entitlements spiral out of control. Social Security and Medicare are unsustainable.

    Something is going to have to give..

    Ridiculous.

    What we are witnessing is the result of Ronald Reagan's vision which set this in motion.

    Low taxes, soft regulation and massive extraction from the economy by crony capitalists have led us to this state.

    The New Deal was working fine for some 4 decades. There was no real middle class in this country until it's advent.

    Sorry, Guy, I grew up in the 1970's, before Reagan got there. The "New Deal" wasn't working anymore.

    I remember my dad showing my mom how to use a gun in 1970 in case rioters attacked the house while he was at work. I remember during the Carter years, when we had to put locks on the gas caps in case people siphoned stuff out. The whole thing was starting to turn to shit a lot earlier than Reagan. If anything, Reagan gave us a slight boost out of it and even bought your beloved Socialist Security a few more decades. (It would have collapsed in the 1980's if he hadn't)

    And if you think Obama and Clinton aren't in bed with the Corporate Cronies as much as Reagan and the Bush's were, you are deluded. At least in Reagan's day, these guys thought of themselves as Americans first.

    If you want to change corporate behavior, change your habits as a consumer. If you don't like McDonald's business practices, don't eat there.
