This just finished airing on CSPAN. I hope it was widely viewed.

In 1964, they said, "If you vote for Goldwater, we'll end up in a war."

So, I did....and they were right!

And I can see this Atlantic civilization galvanizing and guiding emergent nations everywhere. Now, I know this freedom is not the fruit of every soil. I know that our own freedom was achieved through centuries by unremitting efforts by brave and wise men.

And I know that the road to freedom is a long and a challenging road, and I know also that some men may walk away from it, that some men resist challenge, accepting the false security of governmental paternalism.

I heard Obama mock the republicans concept of "Pulling one self up by their bootstraps" ...even if they don't have boots!

Than in the next breath Obame saying Americans believes in self reliance and etc He flounder and stumbled at that rally pointing out in minds of many who are already are negative thinking of what they feel they don't have (instead of what they do have to build upon that.)

Thanks for posting the speech. I have not read or heard it before. I may need to read more about Goldwater.

Sad, those were the days of a truly great republican party. I fear that Goldwater would not recognize his party if he were alive today
