Reagan, Ronald Wilson
A Time for Choosing

One of the great speeches by the man who later became one of the great presidents of the United States. Reagan delivered this speech on television in 1964 in support of Barry Goldwater and his failing campaign for the presidency. It was a watershed speech for Reagan, who had only recently left the Democratic Party to join the Republicans, and had begun to resist the liberal tide which was sweeping through his home state of California and the movie business in which he worked. The speech defined the ideas and the optimism that he would bring to the White House fifteen years later to start the Reagan Revolution. It has come to be known simply as "The Speech" by Reagan's admirers.
