IIRC, Goldwater was very strong on national security issues. Perhaps a little TOO strong, more than the people in 1964 could handle, which is why he didn’t win.
Ron Paul is no Barry Goldwater.
You’re confused. Barry Goldwater never supported LBJs Vietnam adventure. He said declare war and win it, or get out. Ron Paul has already demonstated that he will support and fight a defensive war. Declare war and get congressional approval. Just like Goldwater. Thanks for the reply!
