The American

"I have little interest in 'streamlining' government, nor in making it 'more efficient,' for I mean to reduce its size. I do not undertake to 'promote  welfare,' for I propose to extend Freedom. My aim is not to pass laws, but to  repeal them. It is not to inaugurate new programs, but to cancel old ones that do violence to the Constitution, or have failed their purpose, or that impose on  the people unwarranted financial burden. I will not attempt to discover whether  legislation is 'needed'  before I have first determined whether it is  Constitutionally permissible. And, when attacked for 'neglecting my  constituents interests,' I shall reply that I was informed that their main  interest is Liberty, and in that cause I am doing the best I can." --Barry Goldwater, 1960


This is what being an American means.

  1. This is a great quote.

    I hope the fire I see amongst conservative bloggers, writers and town hall go-ers can really turn the tide and America can be saved from the progressives hell bent on destruction.

    I enjoy your blog!

    Cheers, LisaGinNZ

  3. There's a documentary by his granddaughter C.C.,called "Mr.Conservative".Check your local library for dvd."Consitutionally permissive" IS the key phrase,the core of his philosophy,and was what confounded his adversaries,whether "Big Government Libs" or Ralph Reed/Jerry Falwell types.A "Western Man" in the best sense,like Jimmy Stewart and John Wayne.Libertarian,without the nerdy factor...

  4. I thought you might enjoy this quotation. Which explains an awful lot. I do think that the two party system is just an illusion to make us believe that really we do have a choice, when in fact they are both working the same agenda - just with a slightly different slant.


    "The argument that the two parties should represent opposed ideals and policies, one, perhaps, of the Right and the other of the Left, is a foolish idea acceptable only to doctrinaire and academic thinkers. Instead, the two parties should be almost identical, so that the American people can throw the rascals out at any election without leading to any profound or extensive shifts in policy. Then it should be possible to replace it, ever four years if necessarty, by the other party, which will be none of these things but will still pursue, with new vigor, approximately the same basic policies."

    Sorry if this upsets any die hard Democrats or Republicans.

  16. Removing farm subsidies, depletion allowances, specialized depreciations, private health insurance, and many other loopholes would save orders of magnitude more. A portion of that saving could be reinvested in America, not exporting it to foreign workers & products where its multiplicative effect on the economy would be negligible.70-247

  27. I supposed you may like this citation. Which illustrates an appalling part. I do feel that the two gathering framework is simply a dream to make us accept that truly we do have a decision
