Barry Goldwater Jr. and Melanie Tipton – a Return to Reaganism and the American Dream

Written by Kevin Fobbs on April 9, 2014

Often times in the course of human events there comes a crucial moment when standing up and standing firm for a course correction in history is more than a accident of fate it is a call to duty. Forty year ago a proud American statesman from the Arizona proclaimed with noble pride found in the Founder Fathers, “Extremism in the defense of liberty is no vice. And moderation in the pursuit of justice is no virtue.” 1964 Republican Presidential Acceptance Speech – Sen. Barry Goldwater
Now a half century later another Goldwater, this time his son Barry Goldwater, Jr., is helping to remind America of the need to bring about a restoration of conservatism, Reganism and the virtues of American capitalism. He has agreed to be a part of a much hailed documentary by Melanie Tipton which will fight back against Obama’s push for socialism and his administration’s war on Capitalism.

The documentary which is sponsored by The Conservative Campaign Committee / 1 Million People to Defeat Barack Obama will be the direct opposite of liberal Michael Moore’s propaganda film war on Capitalism. Tipton’s documentary. will promote the greatness of America as seen through the eyes of capitalism and its immeasurable virtues.

“Why now?” many will ask. The answer is if not now, then when? If not here, then where? If not conservatives then who will take the stand in the American arena and become true gladiators for conservatism and capitalism.

Barry Goldwater, Jr. is cut from the same conservative cloth as his father. He is accomplished as a former Republican member of the United States House of Representatives from California 1969 – 1983 and as an expert of finance and capitalism in America. He played an important role during in 1980 as he campaigned for family friend and Governor of California, Ronald Reagan who beat President Jimmy Carter.

Reagan’s landslide win ushered an era of economic growth and prosperity.

Goldwater has correctly labeled the struggle for the heart and soul of America as indeed a classic one.

Today our government is waging war on our freedoms, our property, and our well-being. The United States was founded on the principles of individual freedom, free markets, private property, and limited government. As the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution reflect, individuals have the natural and God-given right to live their lives any way they choose, so long as their conduct is peaceful. It is the duty of government to protect, not destroy, these inherent and inalienable rights,

stressed Goldwater.

It is with this clear and concise vision that Goldwater and Tipton can and will bring about what Reganism established with President Reagan’s election in 1980. Liberal film makers like Michael Moore have tried to poison the vine of free markets with his vitriolic and continuous attack on capitalism. These attacks were made famous in his documentary movies like the 1989 release of Roger and Me and his 2009 Capitalism: A Love Story. Tipton’s documentary will help millions across America’s heartland embrace a future where families, individuals and mom and pop businesses that dot the landscape of America can grow and thrive.

Now the time for a renewal of the American dream envisioned and delivered by President Ronald Reagan is crucial. With Barry Goldwater joining Melanie Tipton this documentary can become a wake-up call of American conservatism and capitalism to be reunited once again.

Melanie_Tipton_and_Barry_Goldwarter_Jr_picIn 1964 Reagan gave a famous much heralded speech for Senator and republican presidential nominee Barry Goldwater called “A Time For Choosing.” It forecast a new and reinvigorated America that does not falter nor does it flee in terror from its noble destiny.

Right here and right now, Tipton’s documentary will embrace and showcase the honest truth of the rich vitality of America’s core free enterprise values and principles with her Melanie’s Journey Through Chattanoogaville Documentary.

Barry Goldwater, Jr’s participation in Melanie Tipton’s documentary harkens back to the pride filled days of Senator Goldwater and his comments in his 1960 book. The Conscience of a Conservative.

Senator Goldwater pointed out,

Conservatism, we are told, is out-of-date. This charge is preposterous and we ought to boldly say so. The laws of God, and of nature, have no dateline. […] These principles are derived from the nature of man, and from the truths that God has revealed about His creation. […] To suggest that the Conservative philosophy is out of date is akin to saying that the Golden Rule, or the Ten Commandments or Aristotle’s Politics are out of date.

Capitalism and conservatism is not out of date it has just been temporarily beaten up and beaten down by liberal bureaucrats, Hollywood sycophants and an uncaring socialistic-minded President Obama. Remember the laws of God and of the U.S. Constitution have no expiration date and neither does capitalism.
