Goldwater was a giant ahead of his time.

Ron Paul is a wild shrimp by comparison.

Except no one in the party listens to Goldwater’s example anymore. I’ve even see so called conservatives on this site label Goldwater a “liberal” because well, as a true conservative, he could no more well tolerate federal intervention on the side of right-wing issues than he could for the intervention on left-wing issues.

That being said, I don’t see 2008 as an offhand loss for the Republicans. The Red-Blue dynamic is not about to break up, unless the Dems do something bold like nominating Biden or Edwards, which seems less and less likely. The truth is, there are 10 states that will decide this election, as it has been since 2000, and we have just as good a shot as we have previously.

You just made me realize who Ron Paul reminds me of.
Plankton from Spongebob Squarepants.

Goldwater was a giant ahead of his time.

But, apparently his younger bride turned his heart to semi-liberalism before his death in 1998.

How the might are fallen.
