    That is why you troll around posts trying anonymously to tease apart posts, creating doubt.   If you want to convince me that I am wrong about you, then simply say who you are and link to any public comments in favor of modern America.

    Trying to smear me as a historian will not deter me.  Character assassination is a great tool, but you have no bullets.  You have offered nothing to suggest that Reagan thought the government was a legitimate tool to advance worker's rightS, civil rights or public health.

    •  nice straw men you have there (0+ / 0-)

      Can you actually read? Reason?  All I EVER said was your quote isn't complete and therefore should be used in context. That you cannot deal with the truth is your problem, but stop lying about me to over your insecurities.

      And yeah i got bullets- you have been caught in a (multiple times)  deception :-)

      •  Funny (0+ / 0-)

        I provided you with the context, over and over again.  "this" is irrelevant.  Reagan didn't limit his attack on Modern America to "this crisis.".  This statement by Reagan is the defining statement of his political philosophy.  Most Conservatives will tell you that themselves.  You, however, want to create a distraction.

        You want me to trust that you are a liberal providing constructive criticism and not some troll.  You want me to believe that you are concerned about historical accuracy and not trying to hide the radical nature of modern conservatism.  I say to you, sure.  I'll "trust but verify" who you are.

          i don't want you to necessarily believe anything. I just wonder why you can't accept a correction w/o jumping into other issues and questioning my intent. Simple yes or no question for you: did you or did you not use an incomplete quotation?

          •  No, you accused me of lying. (0+ / 0-)

            You didn't say, "hey, why did you leave out this"?  You didn't say the quote was incomplete.

            You said that I "lied" and left out the "context.". You wanted to prove that I was dishonest and was misrepresenting the conservative movement.   I showed you over and over that the context and the interpretation of the statement was consistent with conservatives self image.

            If you can't accurately describe something that simply requires me to scroll up, how am I supposed to trust you?

            •  read this and then we can be done (0+ / 0-)

              unless you can answer a simple question. I said:

              " your premise is built on a lie as well (1+ / 0-)
              or at least an incomplete context, you state :"

              Why can't you answer a simple yes or no question?
