If Republicans Still Believed...Like Barry...I Would Be One
Barry was a man before his time. He rent the Republican party in two in 1964 with his belief in American liberty and freedom from the intrusions of the federal government. The result was a landslide for Lyndon Baines Johnson. If we had listened then, we would not have the present mess and debt and corruption in Washington DC. It was Johnson and the moderate Nixon after him that gave us the monster that is the present US government. In 1964 we still had a chance to turn from the path of empire and live as a republic. Instead, Americans voted for their welfare check. So be it. Now you are paying through the nose.
All of you flower children that fought so hard for social justice are still blind to what it has cost you, your children and your grandchildren. You will be dead when the empire expires. Your progeny and legacy will be living on the streets in poverty or in prison camps. Socialism always ends this way. Ask the Russians. Eventually the bills have to be paid morally and actually.
I would be Republican again if there were a man or woman like Barry in the party that would look directly into the camera and say, "extremism in the defense of liberty is no vice...and moderation in the pursuit of justice is no virtue."
I get chills thinking about it.
Donald Trump, you are no Barry Goldwater. I miss him.
