Barry Goldwater   Category:

The income tax created more criminals than any other single act of government.
Barry Goldwater   Category:

When I'm not a politician, I'll be dead.
Barry Goldwater   Category:

Where is the politician who has not promised to fight to the death for lower taxes- and who has not proceeded to vote for the very spending projects that make tax cuts impossible?
Barry Goldwater   Category:

You don't have to be straight to be in the military; you just have to be able to shoot straight.
Barry Goldwater   Category:

You don't need to be straight to fight and die for your country. You just need to shoot straight.
