'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!'-- Marcus Tullius Cicero, Second Oration Against Catiline, as Quoted by Barry Goldwater.

I was there too, working as a Youth for Goldwater volunteer. I was in the public area, during the roll-call, sitting one row in front of National Reviews Magazine's William Rusher, one of the founders of the Draft Goldwater Committee. A great day for the country and the conservative movement. The nation has paid a terrible price for rejecting his candidacy.

To: Lucius Cornelius Sulla; Congressman Billybob

Since you two were there for the speech, as was one Miss Hillary Rodham (if her story is to be believed as a Goldwater Youth volunteer), just think what you could have done for the future of America had you been able to catch her eye, keep her away from BJC and all that came to entail. It would have been a service beyond even getting Goldwater elected, I tell you!! Sacrifices needed to be made, extreme measures were needed, moderation was not the order of the day!!

All kidding aside, I thank you for being there to hold up the lantern for those of us who would follow later. I envy you for the experience.
