The day before the election, I was flipping through the channels in order to escape the incessant drone of poll numbers and pundit prognosticators in order to wrap my sleep deprived mind around anything that wasn’t election related.
The attempt wasn’t very successful. But the effort did reveal a splendid HBO documentary every down-in-the-dumps Republican needs to watch; “Mr. Conservative: Goldwater on Goldwater”.
The bio is put together by AuH2O’s granddaughter, CC Goldwater and goes into detail about the personal life of not only her grandfather but the grandfather of the modern conservative movement from his rise to power, his humiliating defeat in the 1964 Election to his ultimate redemption in 1980.
Learning from the past is the best way to prepare for the future.
