Revisionism always looks one-sided. In this case, it is.

Goldwater was the father of the Reagan Revolution, but its impetus was the LBJ legacy - escalation in Vietnam and the disastrous programs of the Great Society. Goldwater's loss was a moral victory for conservatism, but it also led to many of the societal problems that bedevil us today.

Choose Ron Paul for a moral victory, and help the Left continue their march towards cultural domination unfettered by a united Right. I'd rather win for real.

You make an excellent point. Goldwater brought us Reagan but LBJ, Nixon, and Carter happened first. That was a long sixteen years. I’m not sure I’m comfortable with the slogan “Victory in 2023!”
