Goldwater's Constitution

April 1982
National Review;4/2/1982, Vol. 34 Issue 6, p339
This article presents information on the role played by senator Barry Goldwater in the twentieth century American politics. It is informed that Goldwater is a beloved figure to conservatives of every variety. However, of late, Goldwater has been talking a certain amount of nonsense. He opposed the U.S. Senate's recent effort to restrict the power of the federal courts to impose racial busing beyond five miles or 15 minutes from a child's home. Goldwater justified his opposition on the basis that the courts should be independent of the legislature, i.e., on the recognized principle of the separation of powers.
