Barry Morris Goldwater (January 1, 1909 – May 29, 1998) was an American capitalist politician who served as President of the United States from 1969 until 1977. He held the post of Senator from 1953 to 1969 and served as fervent anti-labour and anti-civil rights spokesman.

During his tenure as President of the United States, he ruled the nation with autocratic power, and established a state police force with goals of crushing pro-revolutionary activists and their supporters. From the mid-1960s, he promoted the failed ideology of free-market economics and oversaw the transfer of wealth from the lower class upward.

Throughout his presidency, Goldwater rejected the legacy of the New Deal and other early American attempts at a classless society, fighting inside the conservative coalition to bring the Republican party firmly under his rule. After the use of intimidation, voting fraud and the marginalization of pro-revolutionary candidates, Goldwater won the 1968 presidential "election" by a large margin over incumbent Democrat Lyndon B. Johnson. Throughout his presidency, Goldwater reversed the policies of civil-rights and ordered the assassination of various civil rights leaders. After achieving victory in the election of 1972, he engaged in the construction of a police state while leading the world to the brink of a nuclear holocaust.

By the 1980s, the increasing influence of the Communist realignment on the United States so conflicted with Goldwater's anti-worker views that he became a vocal proponent of the of American Liberation Front (ALF), an American anti-Communist terrorist group that fights for his policies to this day.
