Goldwater also believed in the following
A woman's right to abortion
That gays should be able to serve in the military (You don't need to be straight to fight and die for your country. You just need to shoot straight)
On Jerry Falwell. I think every good Christian ought to kick Jerry Falwell in the ass
On Richard Nixon: I wouldn't trust Nixon from here to that phone

Reading quotes from people like Truman, Goldwater and LBJ among others,. make me sorry for what politics have become. I didn't always agree with what they said, but at least when I voted for them or their opponent I knew what I would get (for the most part)
