In 1964, Ronald Reagan took to live television in support of Republican candidate Barry Goldwater. In his speech, "A Time for Choosing", Reagan addressed many topics of the day, poverty, taxation, Vietnam, but most interestingly he warns us of an ever-growing presence and influence on the political sphere. The author of the video above does a wonderful job illustrating Reagan's foresight, very moving and insightful are his words.

Liberals often cast Reagan as a 'Hollywood actor' who did 'chimp movies' until he was needed to be President, hogwash to that. As seen here, Reagan was already a strong voice in the nature of Conservative politics, with a record stretching back to before the 1950's. You can watch another clip, without the modern edits, here.
