    Timeless

    I was surprised how much this sounded like modern conservatism. We constantly hear the media narrative that the conservative movement is only a recent development and constantly changing. It was good to read this and see how timeless and common sense (and American) conservatism is. A quick and easy read. Also good to remember how much was at stake during the (very recent) cold war.

    An essential read

    Something everyone, male and female Conservative or Liberal young or old should read. Upon reading, the ideas Mr. Goldwater presents are not so much Conservative as they are common sense. He argues for a smaller federal government, and presents historical accounts of why the founders intended for such. He argues for strict adherence to the Constitution, states' rights, civil liberties, freedoms for the working men, and defines conservatism not as an outdated, intransigent mindset, but an eternal set of ideals that governs according to time-tested truths. A fascinating read from an equally fascinating man. Upon finishing this short manifesto, I think you will join me in saying that one of the greatest tragedies of the 20th century was this man's defeat in 1964.

    The Ultimate Manifesto

    The ultimate manifesto for the true conservative of liberal values. Not an oxymoron. The very word conservatism arose from a need to conserve liberty. And so this book spells out the political philosophy on how to accomplish that goal. <BR/><BR/>But like all political philosophies, very few individuals agree with every proposition every time. And I am no exception. With the removal of two chapters, the chapter on civil rights and the one on the soviet union/communism, then I would wholeheartedly endorse the book with 5 stars.
