Bio
I was a slacker before slackers were cool. I play bongos in a hip band, and we're planning to hit the road, but only for a three-hour tour. Some people call me "Little Buddy," but I have no idea why. I keep up with Dobie and Zelda on Facebook.

Guess the Politician Who Said This?

Rate: 3 Flag

     

Which famous politician made the following statements?

   

    

“The rights that we have under the Constitution covers anything we want to do, as long as it’s not harmful. I can't see any way in the world that being a gay can cause damage to somebody else.”

    

“It’s time America realized that there is no gay exemption in the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness in the Declaration of Independence.”

    

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

    

"A woman has a right to an abortion."

    

“That's a decision that's up to the pregnant woman, not up to the pope or some do-gooders or the Religious Right."

    

“I'm frankly sick and tired of the political preachers across this country telling me as a citizen that if I want to be a moral person, I must believe in 'A,' 'B,' 'C,' and 'D.' Just who do they think they are?”

   

"Every good Christian ought to kick [Jerry] Falwell right in the ass."

    

“You are extremists, and you've hurt the Republican Party much more than the Democrats have." 

   

   

 

   

    

  

  

   

 

 

   

 

              goldwater

    

Yes, Barry Goldwater. he man who was too extremist to be elected President in 1964 believed today's Republican Party had become too extremist. Note to the phony "libertarians" of the GOP: when Goldwater said to keep the government out of our lives, he also meant out of our bedrooms, out of our wombs and out of our houses of worship.

Barry G, especially as he aged and mellowed, was what I like to call a "true conservative". He wanted Government out of our lives where ever possible. Very difference from the loudest speaking self-identified conservatives we hear from these days.
I remember it was his foreign policy ideas that really freaked people back in 1964.

His opinion on H-bombs:

""Let's lob one into the men's room at the Kremlin."

Talk like that scared the crud out of me when I was a little kid.
I had no idea Maynard.,. but I have slipped this bit of information in the old noggin.

Yes, and Nixon not only went to China but created the EPA. I loathed them both but compared to the so-called true conservatives of today they seem level-headed.
He was corrupted by the party system and then he got full of himself. Back then, the Republican Party was irrevocably moving toward the extreme right and Goldwater got caught up in it all.
