This is Arizona, Barry Goldwater’s state. It’s dry country out here. Water is priceless. That’s why they’re building this dam. It’s a federal dam. Federal taxes build it. It was sponsored by, uhh, Barry Goldwater. Now here’s the funny part. Barry sponsored this dam in his state, but he wanted to sell the TVA dams in Tennessee. He voted against the Hell’s Canyon Dam in Idaho, against the Hanford atomic power project in Washington, against public works all over the country. In Barry’s book, this kind of thing is “creeping Socialism,” except when it creeps into Arizona.

 
Context
