Barry Morris Goldwater (January 2, 1909 – May 29, 1998) was a five-term United States Senator from Arizona (1953–1965, 1969–1987) and the Republican Party's nominee for President in the 1964 election, though he lost in a landslide to incumbent Lyndon Johnson. He was also a Major General in the United States Air Force Reserve. He is credited with the revitalization of the Conservative movement in America.

Barry Goldwater in Southern VictoryEdit

Barry Goldwater was a conservative Democratic Congressman representing New Mexico in the 1930s and 40s. In 1940, he was ejected from the floor of the United States House of Representatives for becoming involved in a heated exchange with Congressman Nephi Pratt of Utah. Goldwater scuffled with the men who removed him, even landing a good blow on one. Pratt, in contrast, simply left the room with dignity.[1]
