"Don't quote me on that!" - Anarcho-Socialist

...many DUers are susceptible to old school palaeocon nuttiness of the Ron Paul and Pat Buchanan variety.

There is a presumption that because palaeoconservatism opposes neoconservatism, palaeoconservatism must have some sort of nobility in it, when in fact palaeoconservatism is a deeply insidious world view in its own right.

It's a laugh to see some DUers support goldbugism, when such a policy unnecessarily prolonged the Great Depression in the United States. Goldbugism reduces liquidity and investment in the economy at a time when the economy needs an increase in overall demand, available consumer capital, and available public capital.

I hate it when everyone makes sweeping generalisations about people, all the time.
