Perhaps you're really a political advocate? Or maybe a Community Organizer?

You sure are good at tossing out logically fallacious lines of reasoning and justification.

That's why I didn't bother to reply to your last response to my comments. I figure everyone else, except that other guy, can see them as well as I can, and you wouldn't accept that they are fallacious even if it were demonstrated to you.

You said you'd need to hire another consultant to interpret my comments. Your money would be better spent on a philosopher so you'd just have someone who could think clearly for you in the first place.

Conservatives really lost out when Buckley died. Not since him have conservatives had such a literate and clear thinking champion to argue their positions. I

I don't have a problem with conservative positions. I'm more conservative than liberal myself. I have a problem with the idiots who are put forth to champion the cause. They are, for the most part, embarrassing. It's unfortunate, but the great majority of conservative positions seem to issue from merely being the opposite of the liberal one rather than having logical merit in their own right.

All the best.
