He also served as the communications director for Barry Goldwater, has authored dozens of books, and has been called the “voice of the silent majority” by The New York Times.

Their legal goals were achieved through debate and discussion rather than an uncompromising, unproductive destruction of founding principles and physical representations of those principles.
