Goldwater was praised by Ted Kennedy and Hillary Clinton.
Yet, he advocated cutting welfare, agriculture subsidies, and laws permitting unionization.
He supported abortion and would have supported gay marriage.
Yet Reagan's stump speech for Goldwater in 1964 included his saying this:
"You and I are told we must choose between a left or right, but I suggest there is no such thing as a left or right. There is only an up or down. Up to man's age-old dream-the maximum of individual freedom consistent with order or down to the ant heap of totalitarianism...
"The Founding Fathers knew a government can't control the economy without controlling people. And they knew when a government sets out to do that, it must use force and coercion to achieve its purpose. So we have come to a time for choosing."
An economic/capitalistic conservative and social liberal is what I'd call him. He had the conservative part down pat, however. Still an enigma of sorts.
real Conservatives want the government to stay out of their lives.....

evangelical faux-conservatives want the government to control their lives....

that is Galt's last word to you on this subject.....

Hobby Lobby IS NOT making health decisions for their employees!
They are making a business decision to not cover "added" birth control coverage etc. to their employees Health Insurance Coverage based on their moral & ethical Religious principles.

It's a Faith-based issue.

It was better explained in my last post.
But Goldwater was the liberals' conservative sweetheart because of his social liberalism and the economic conservative conservatives' sweetheart because of his strong stance against big government.
But the liberals on here can't demonize his stance on states rights during the passing of the Civil Rights Act and claim he's one of their own at the same time.
You see the problem with that, I'm sure. Even though I understand you're also an economic conservative and a social liberal too.
Even the conservatives are laughing at you.

It's time for you to leave. For good, as you've repeatedly promised.

You make a fool of yourself and embarass true conservatives.

Dave, independents don't like Obama's policies according to the polls.
You need to stop your simplistic us v them.
Independents give Republican policies (Congress) a 13% approval rating.

How does that compare with the Independents view of Obama's policies?

Hobby Lobby is offering to pay for 16 birth control methods.

We all know the ACA is limiting the drugs that are paid for under their plans. It seems bogus that any Progressive would complain about just one set of drugs being limited by a few businesses while others which are life supporting are not covered.

The Dems added a religious exemption to ACA and now want to whine that their exemption is anti-women. Good grief-folks.

Confidence In Supreme Court Hits Record Low, Poll Finds

"A new poll released just as the Supreme Court dealt significant blows to women and workers finds that Americans' confidence in the judicial branch is at a record low.

The Gallup survey released Monday found that just 30 percent of respondents have a "great deal" or a "quite a lot" of confidence in the high court, down seven points from the 2012 survey and marking the lowest approval number for the court since Gallup first started tracking confidence in the court in 1973. The court has not received approval ratings above 40 percent since 2007, one year after George W. Bush appointee Samuel Alito's confirmation.

The poll was conducted June 5 through June 8, well before Monday's high profile decisions were handed down."

If we no longer seek a greater power to govern ourselves and society can no longer draw a clear line between right and wrong or distinguish common sense between PC correctness, we have nowhere else to look but government.

The direction of this country will depend on who - and what - the majority chooses.
Greater power? An invisible greater power? Kinda like the one that the crazy azz fundamentalist Muslims subscribe to? By way of the Old Testament__do da name Abraham ring a familiah note babe?

They have to re-do that poll in July with their recent rulings there should be a significant jump up in their standings! When our government follows the U.S. Constitution freedom loving Americans WIN.
