(Before It's News)
Like many of you, I became a conservative because of Milton Friedman, Barry Goldwater, Ronald Reagan and William F. Buckley.
In the mid 1970′s, many of us young conservatives were recovering from Watergate.
In my case, I found Buckley’s “Firing Line” show a wonderful place to see a conservative with wit, grace and a wonderful command of the language. In fact, I would often jot down words and check them in the dictionary later.
Then I got hooked on his columns, National Review and some of his books. I must confess that I did not read most of Buckley’s books. I did enjoy one called “Overdrive” from the early 80s.
Buckley was a pre-blog conservative. However, he certainly inspired all of us to blog conservative ideas.
WF Buckley had a wonderful life. Thanks for everything! Can you imagine the meeting in heaven tonight? Reagan, Friedman, Goldwater and now Buckley!
We love you, Mr. Buckley!
