Why McCain Has Lost Our Vote

Being Barry Goldwater's granddaughter and living in Arizona, one would assume that I would be voting for our state's senator, John McCain. I am still struck by certain 'dyed in the wool' Republicans who are on the fence this election, as it seems like a no-brainer to me.

Myself, along with my siblings and a few cousins, will not be supporting the Republican presidential candidates this year. We believe strongly in what our grandfather stood for: honesty, integrity, and personal freedom, free from political maneuvering and fear tactics. I learned a lot about my grandfather while producing the documentary, Mr. Conservative Goldwater on Goldwater. Our generation of Goldwaters expects government to provide for constitutional protections. We reject the constant intrusion into our personal lives, along with other crucial policy issues of the McCain/Palin ticket.

My grandfather (Paka) would never suggest denying a woman's right to choose. My grandmother co-founded Planned Parenthood in Arizona in the 1930's, a cause my grandfather supported. I'm not sure about how he would feel about marriage rights based on same-sex orientation. I think he would feel that love and respect for ones privacy is what matters most and not the intolerance and poor judgment displayed by McCain over the years. Paka respected our civil liberties and passed on the message that that we should conduct our lives standing up for the basic freedoms we hold so dear.

For a while, there were several candidates who aligned themselves with the Goldwater version of Conservative thought. My grandfather had undying respect for the U.S. Constitution, and an understanding of its true meanings.

There always have been a glimmer of hope that someday, someone would "race through the gate" full steam in Goldwater style. Unfortunately, this hasn't happened, and the Republican brand has been tarnished in a shameless effort to gain votes and appeal to the lowest emotion, fear. Nothing about McCain, except for maybe a uniform, compares to the same ideology of what Goldwater stood for as a politician. The McCain/Palin plan is to appear diverse and inclusive, using women and minorities to push an agenda that makes us all financially vulnerable, fearful, and less safe.

When you see the candidate's in political ads, you can't help but be reminded of the 1964 presidential campaign of Johnson/Goldwater, the 'origin of spin', that twists the truth and obscures what really matters. Nothing about the Republican ticket offers the hope America needs to regain it's standing in the world, that's why we're going to support Barack Obama. I think that Obama has shown his ability and integrity.

After the last eight years, there's a lot of clean up do. Roll up your sleeves, Senators Obama and Biden, and we Goldwaters will roll ours up with you.

you know....something tells me that Goldwater, even with the planned parenthood support. Would be staying 1,000 miles away from both Obama and Biden.



Socialism is diametrically opposed to the ideals of Goldwater and Reagan.

No it's not. We're way too tolerant of absolute idiots like you. We need a better class of libs---you certainly aren't a good representative.

I've just finished reading "Pure Goldwater" a few weeks ago, Barry Goldwater's personal journals that he kept from the time his son Barry Jr. was born. I've read his personal feelings about John McCain (news flash, he didn't like him) and about abortion, gay rights, etc. Barry Goldwater was the ultimate Conservative, HE IS Conservatism. And seeing the way CC is going on this election, it's obvious to me her grandfather's Conservative spirit didn't progress to her. I personally don't think Barry Goldwater would endorse McCain either, but he CERTAINLY would not endorse a Marxist. Barry understood Communism, he knew what it took to beat Communism and he would never have backed a man like Obama who wants to usher Marxist Socialism into this country. What a joke CC.

He'd probably be staying away from both and being labeled a "kook" by the media for doing so.
