Sen. Goldwater, R-AZ: Leftist?

"Our tendency to concentrate power in the hands of a few men deeply concerns me. We can be conquered by bombs or subversion; but we can also be conquered by neglect - by ignoring the Constitution and disregarding the principles of limited government. Our defenses against the accumulation of unlimited power in Washington are in poorer shape, I fear, than our defenses against the aggressive designs of Moscow. Like so many other nations before us, we may succumb through internal weakness rather than fall before a foreign foe," - Barry Goldwater, "The Conscience of a Conservative."

LSB: Anyone that was conscious in the 60's knows about Barry Goldwater. He was the Conservative's Conservative. This makes this long forgotten quote is remarkably on target.
