    Outdoor rally in Bristol Tennessee. Goldwater speaking.

    TRANSCRIPT: GOLDWATER: Johnson is not satisfied with just an election, he wants to be crowned - he asks for a mandate, he wants total trust, total power over your total lives, America's choice is stark and clear. Do we want raw, naked power and ambition in the White House: power stripped of humility, stripped of common honesty, devoid of any morality except the morality of get. That's what Johnson really means when he says 'Let us Continue'.

    On social security - you who are not covered would now have been receiving the benefits of social security except that the President didn't want you to. A selfish man always acts this way

    JOHNSON: Without notice on that tragic day, amid the roar of jet engines in the background. Without opportunity of counsel and without being able to go to the libraries I attempted to pick up where beloved benefactor and friend had left off. That evening I said that with God's help and your prayers I will do my best. I came back and got behind that lonely fence and there I have been most of the time. I looked over the inventory he had left and it constituted one of the greatest most advanced social programmes in the history of man. Fifty one measures spelled out in detail. A few days ago I said after the hour of midnight - of these fifty one measures on Kennedy's programme every single one of them had passed the Senate of the United States.
