Tell me, CJ... did I just make a blanket statement about conservatives... considering that's my assessment, based on experience, of how conservatives approach government?

Now, if you'd followed the discussion that Deuce and I were having and discovered that my comments were in response to our discussion about how government supports individual lives, you may have gotten that distinction. Deuce made similar comments to yours with respect to perceptions of conservatives in response. I don't challenge your perceptions, but I've never claimed all individuals of any persuasion hold the same views of the majority in that group. I only claimed that their approach to government follows a particular form which neither you nor anyone else has belied.
A Canadian conservative is one who believes in limited government and that the government should stay out of our wallets and out of our bedrooms.
Your dishonest backtracking is transparent. My intellectual acuity is just fine, though your refusal to admit your own words is rather disconcerting.
I'm sorry if the truth bothers you. I'm sorry if you don't like being exposed for the things you've said. I cannot help the fact you don't like being responsible for your own words. Here, I'll post once again what you said, because you seem to have forgotten:If I was going to pompously stick my nose into a discussion between two other people, I'd certainly want to have some idea what I was talking about - you, it appears, are not so constrained.
I don't know why you won't do the honest thing and just admit you made a generalized statement about people. It's painfully aware to everyone what you said and you can't change what is obvious on the screen. You weren't talking about ideology or positions, you were making a generalized statement about a group of people, which "TheNextEra" rightfully pointed out was stupid. Just own your words, because no matter how much you try to muddy the water, it's plain to see exactly what you said.
