Political opinion shaped by the likes of Barry Goldwater, Ronald Reagan, Milton Friedman, and Ayn Rand, among others.

Why I Am A Goldwater Republican

  • “And here we encounter the seeds of government disaster and collapse — the kind that wrecked ancient Rome and every other civilization that allowed a sociopolitical monster called the welfare state to exist.”
  • “Those who seek absolute power, even though they seek it to do what they regard as good, are simply demanding the right to enforce their own version of heaven on earth. And let me remind you, they are the very ones who always create the most hellish tyrannies.”
  • “When you say “radical right” today, I think of these moneymaking ventures by fellows like Pat Robertson and others who are trying to take the Republican Party away from the Republican Party, and make a religious organization out of it. If that ever happens, kiss politics goodbye.”
  • “You don’t have to be straight to be in the military; you just have to be able to shoot straight.”
  • “I think every good Christian ought to kick Falwell right in the ass.”
  • “I would remind you that extremism in the defense of liberty is no vice! And let me remind you also that moderation in the pursuit of justice is no virtue.”
