Barry Goldwater Jr. Endorses Ron Paul

by Doug Mataconis

The son and namesake of Mr. Conservative has endorsed someone that most conservatives are ignoring:

ARLINGTON, VIRGINIA—Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul today gained a public endorsement from Barry M. Goldwater, Jr.

“America is at a crossroads,” said Mr. Goldwater. “We have begun to stray from our traditions and must get back to what has made us the greatest nation on earth or we will lose much of the freedom we hold dear. Ron Paul stands above all of the other candidates in his commitment to liberty and to America.”

“Leading America is difficult, and I know Ron Paul is the man for the job,” he added.

Mr. Goldwater is the son of the late former Republican presidential candidate and Arizona Senator Barry Goldwater. Barry Goldwater, Jr. served in the House of Representatives for six terms with Texas Congressman Paul, and is currently on the Board of Directors of the Goldwater Institute. After representing northern Los Angeles County in Washington, D.C. for 14 years, Mr. Goldwater retired from politics in 1983 to pursue a successful career in business and humanitarian ventures.

“The Ron Paul campaign is exceptionally honored by Mr. Goldwater’s endorsement,” said Paul campaign manager Lew Moore. “Dr. Paul and Congressman Goldwater fought together in the Congress for the ideals of limited constitutional government that Mr. Goldwater’s father so tirelessly advocated. The Goldwaters have left an indelible mark on the Republican Party, and theirs is a legacy which Congressman Paul will certainly inherit as President.

The Goldwaters, it seems, have a thing for long-shot Presidential campaigns led by men who actually believe what they say.

  1. Barry Goldwater was a true Republican. Unlike the Neo-Con Fascists that try to pass themselves off as Republicans now.

    Ron Paul is the only hope for the Republican party at this time. Ron Paul is in fact a “top tier” candidate regardless of the perception projected by the main stream media. I have gathered the evidence and created a website.

  2. Actually, if the Goldwater family are interested in offering support to the Paul campaign, I’d just as soon that C.C. Goldwater do ad campaigns for Paul that are as flattering and well-done as the documentary she did about her grandfather.
