William F. Buckley, Jr. Dies At Age 82 (November 24, 1925 – February 27, 2008).

William Francis Buckley, Jr. was an American author and conservative commentator. He founded the political magazine National Review in 1955, hosted the television show Firing Line from 1966 until 1999, and was a nationally syndicated newspaper columnist. His writing style was famed for its erudition, wit, and use of uncommon words.

Buckley's primary intellectual achievement was to fuse traditional American political conservatism with libertarianism, laying the groundwork for the modern American conservatism of U.S. Presidential candidate Barry Goldwater and U.S. President Ronald Reagan.

A Great American!

God bless you, Mr. Buckley. Rest In Peace.


Thanks for visiting Conservatives United!
