Boston Globe, 8/26/12
“Dogmatic ideological parties tend to splinter the political and social fabric of a nation, lead to governmental crises and deadlocks, and stymie the compromises so often necessary to preserve freedom and achieve progress,”
Part of George (Mitt's Papa) Romney's 11 page letter to Barry Goldwater, explaining why Romney never endorsed Goldwater for president in the 1964 race. I'm searching for the complete text of the letter.

Goldwater voted against the 1964 Civil Rights Act.

At the GOP convention, Goldwater delegates refused to adopt a plank supporting civil rights for blacks.
