This Week’s Memorabilia

This piece of Presidential memorabilia was from the 1964 campaign of Republican nominee, Barry Goldwater.  Goldwater lost the election to President Lyndon Johnson in a landslide.  However, Goldwater’s candidacy shifted the Republican Party to the conservative right.   Your thoughts on the slogan/bumper sticker?

  1. Very eye catching. Makes you look. A lot better than Obama/Biden.

  2. He alienated his base. I’m sure the average joe didn’t realize that those were the symbols from the periodic table. Lesson for Goldwater: Never go over people’s heads.
