They warned us in 1964 that if we voted for Barry Goldwater that thousands of American boys would die in Vietnam, there would be riots and our cities would be burning, and economic turmoil at home, and millions of Americans voted for Goldwater and SURE ENOUGH, it all happened!!!!
Yes, they sure did warn Americans. I recall hearing something completely different than what Goldwater is quoted above saying.
That's the advantage the leftists still use when taking one comment and making it into something entirely different.
The leftists' strategy have tragic consequences.
