Very cool, Carl. I, too, remember that election, all the Goldwater Girl cowboy hats and cries of hawks vs. doves. I was too young to vote, only 18, and the voting age had not been lowered yet. Eighteen year old boys could be drafted but could not vote, could be sent to Viet Nam but had no say in picking the leaders who sent them. Eighteen year olds now have the vote, but do they have any more say about going to war??

I was so crushed and thought it was the end of the world.

I too voted in that election for Goldwater. We are taught to learn from history and not repeat mistakes made , On Nov 6 2012 we will learn if anybody learned anything

Well, I seem to remember that he owed you – huh?
Good artefact anyway.

Nixon surely owed me. I shook hands with in in 1965, 68, and 72. Then when I wrote him to appoint me Secretary of Treasury he never answered. So much for old pals, eh?

1965? Those were the days, my friend. Too young to vote, but not too young to care.

I was 16 but really in to it.

That IS cool. Where did you say you live again? And do you leave a door or window open at night? And are you a sound sleeper? And where exactly do you keep that thing? Just curious…

I think this is so great! SO much better than the unsigned Goldwater campaign pin that I have!

What a cool piece of memorabilia. Thanks for sharing it!
November 6th, 2012 at 00:48
Wow, that’s a keeper. I love politics!

The moments that leave a lasting imprint on our memories. Cool momento and memory, Carl. (I also was not old enough to vote when he ran for President – my 21st birthday was after the election.) My folks voted for Goldwater.

Some moving account right there…and you piece it all together so well. Meanwhile, Happy Elections Day!

Thanks. It reaffirms that my 8 paragraph essay that went with it in a prior post was not necessary.
November 7th, 2012 at 15:16
I was just about to comment I didn’t entirely understand, not knowing my history well, and I see there’s a prior post with an essay. That will be interesting to read.
What a CHOICE piece of history, and memory. I love old things!

Terrific. Goldwater was the bomb but I was too young to know or care.
