After reading all of those great quotes, it's amazing that he was a Republican. It just goes to show you that they USED to be a decent party.

You're so right, they really did at one time. If a pre-Goldwater Republican ran for office in today's political climate, he or she would probably be called a left-leaning moderate at best, if not the usual ("Liberal")... How did the idiots take over? It's kind of like how the NRA used to be a sportsmen's organization (I took my Hunter's Safety course from NRA members in 1969!) but now it seems like not much more than a front for right-wing fund-raising and activism.

My, how the times have changed!

What about FDR? And it's true that the Republican party and Democratic party really kinda switched sides by the last quarter of the nineteenth century. To that point Republicans had been ther party of every self-actualizing black person, then by the end of Reconstruction the tables had totally turned and there was a mass exodus from the Republican Party to the Democrats, who proved themselves far more capable of giving a sdhit about everyone, not just those who had the most money or the same exact morals. Don't be fooled, Lincoln was a Democrat. There has yet to be a great Republican president. Doubting we'll ever see one in our lifetime.
