    So you know in an incident in his early academic career he was involved in cheating. Beyond that, you know nothing of what happened in every other course he took.

    I don't need to know. All his grades, as far as I'm concerned, are invalid and meaningless.

    Oh, and Kennedy's cheating in one little old college class wasn't exactly the extent of his cheating...now was it? He tried to take shortcuts most of his life.

    you are dishonestly putting words in my mouth. I said small government politicians are judged by their actions, not their titles.


    Danarhea didn't preclude anything. He just pointed out the hypocrisy of a "small govt" politician
    No, he said "Perry can talk a good game of Conservatism, but people are not defined by what they say. They are defined by what they do"

    And I said " small government politicians are judged by their actions, not their titles."

    You thanked him, and claimed I was violating the No True Scottsman, but we were making the same frigging argument, with almost identical language

    "small govt" is not a title. It's how some describe themselves. They are all hypocrits, just like the people who call themselves conservatives but are really radicals

    He was accusing Perry of hypocrisy, you were defending him....not the same thing; they're the opposite of each other

    A small government politician is a descriptor for what they believe in.

    Ps I am a real conservative – not the phony kind like Bush (and Perry). You calling me a radical is a badge of honor as I consider you a traitor to this once great nation.

    He was accusing Perry of hypocrisy, you were defending him....not the same thing; they're the opposite of each other
    I was defending Perry? Where? When?

    He also called Perry a liar for saying he wants smaller government. I’m merely saying he isn’t a small government politician because his actions indicate he doesn’t want a smaller government. We are stating the same thing.

    And I'm still waiting for you to post a non-circular definition of what small govt means. Is it based on the # of employees? How much they spend? What powers they have?

    All you have done is say what a small govt politician is not. You havent said what it is.

    PS - danarhea said nothing about Perry being or not being a "small govt" politician. Your claim that he made the same argument you did is nothing but a lie. But that's what I expect from radicals who dishonestly call themselves conservatives.
    Actually, I did.

    No, a "small govt politician" is a descriptor for what they claim to believe in, just as "conservative" is a descriptor for what they claim to believe in.

    Your beliefs are not "conservative"; they are radical which is the opposite of conservative

    There you go again, defending Perry by claiming that he isn't a small govt politician. Being a hypocrit is what being a "small govt" politician is all about, just as being a hypocrit is what being a conservative is all about.

    That's why you can't identify one "real" small govt politician, and why you can't even define what a small govt politician is with any detail. It's because there is no definition that applies to anyone who actually exists

    Your opinion of my beliefs means jack ****. You don’t understand conservatism, so your opinion of it is meaningless.

    First, it’s hypocrite. Second, I would never defend Perry, nor did I. I made the same argument that Dahrnea made, he has no interest in smaller government.

    No, it's the radical rightwingers who call themselves conservatives who don't know what conservatism really means.

    Sure you wouldn't.

    And I noticed you avoided defending your position by responding to my points. I guess I was right, but I'll repeat them in case you get the spine to respond

    That's why you can't identify one "real" small govt politician, and why you can't even define what a small govt politician is with any detail. It's because there is no definition that applies to anyone who actually exists
