    He would not recognize the wacko R now.

    And, he sure as hell would not be allowed in today's GObP.

    We need to get religionS and money out of politics.

    Leave it to the fuckchop hacks who hate Goldwater for anything and everything else he stood for, to cherry pick this one isolated quote.
