Was going through some memorabilia passed down to me from my Great Uncle (MAternal Grandmothers brother). Along with his Army medals (National Defense, Korea, Army of Occupation - Japan), he has quite a bit of Goldwater paraphernalia.
Apparently I come by my libertarian-tinged conservatism genetically.
His sister, my grandmother, married a man with similar beliefs. Granddad used to say "I'm not a Republican, I've just never met a Democrat I'd vote for".
He's still my hero.
