Extremism in the defense of liberty is no vice…and that moderation in the pursuit of justice is no virtue.
~ Paraphrased from Barry Goldwater, Born on this Day in 1909 (d. 1998)
Republican Barry Goldwater was a five-term United States Senator from Arizona. In 1964 he unsuccessfully ran against Lyndon Johnson for the Presidency. He is most credited for the flames that began the conservative political movement in the 1960s.
Goldwater died from complications of a stroke in May 29, 1998. He was 89.
365 Things I Believe is a revisioning of a year long web project. I initially launched the blog 365 Things I Believe because I think there are important things I have to say. There are eternal truths that are non-debatable, although I realize they’re not universally accepted.
So for a year I did a daily post of one thing I believe to be an indisputable truth. I’m relaunching here at The Write Side of My Brain and will continue through the next year to re-post (mostly) from the original project.
This time graphics and commentary are included. You can buy today’s print here. And, by the end of a year, if not sooner, you’ll be able to purchase the entire series in ebook format.
