Hmm d'yu know all I got from that is that the Republicans were forced to abandon their policy ground in favour of the religious right and populism as
a result of their libertarian policies being spat on by the American public after '64.
Any Republican "con" only had to be done because the American people didn't know what was good for them. Had the Republicans stuck to Goldwater's
message, they would be a tiny, obscure party now. They embraced the "centre" (and all its problems) only to stay in power.
For that I can neither condone nor blame them.
