George Will's column from last Thursday discusses Barry Goldwater's brand of conservatism, "Goldwaterism", which Mr. Will sees as on the rise in the Republican party. Here is an excerpt:
"The re-emergence into Republican respectability of conservatism with a socially libertarian cast — Goldwaterism — is a development with a large potential to discomfort the Democratic Party. The re-emergence can make the Republican Party more appealing to many young and suburban voters, two cohorts in which Democrats have recently made substantial gains."
