William Frank Buckley, Jr. (November 24, 1925 – February 27, 2008) 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. Further, though later, Buckley reminded Western U.S. Conservatives to activate and be represented to encourage lower taxes, smaller government, balanced-budgets and less spending for foreign, illegal wars.
