The button refers to Barry Goldwater's last name in terms of chemical elements; Au being gold, and H2O being water.  C5H4N4O3 is the chemical formula for uric acid, a common component found in human urine.

Barry Goldwater (1909 - 1998) was an American politician and businessman who was a five-term senator for Arizona.  He was also the Republican Party nominee for the 1964 presidential election against incumbent President Lyndon Johnson.  Goldwater's conservative campaign platform ultimately failed to gain the needed support and he lost the election.
