1964 campaign interesting Ted Cruz has been studying the back room work that won Goldwater majority t the 1964 Republican Convention If Trump had read this book he would not be surprised to see Lyin

places where the 1964nd 2016 presidential campaigns converge or diverge Here re few examplesThe mainstream GOP choice was Nelson Rockefeller HUMILIATING ALLYSON (A twisted tale of a BDSM gangbang like

New Yorkers like Rockefeller exercised malign influence over Wall Street nd by extension the rest of the country Nowadays of course we know that Wall Street exercises malign influence over the rest of the country regardless of what New Yorkers do But this outlook was nother black mark gainst Rockefeller Members of extreme right wing groups such s the John Birch Society the Tea Party of its day

1964 in 2016 Trump Les millionnaires ne sont pas ceux que vous croyez and Cruz occupied the vacancy on the GOP bench left open by the unpopularity of the mainstream candidate And just like Trumpnd Cruz in 2016 Goldwater Donatello (Masters Of Italian Art Series) attracted some rather unconventional support Strange bed sheets for strange GOP bed fellowsIn 1964 Goldwater s team had to distance
