On Conspiracy Theories

I've had my share of problems with the whacky conspiracy theorists that the Paul campaign has attracted. One of my bigger concerns with them has been that more mainstream people would associate libertarianism with whacky conspiracy theories in general. Well, it turns out those "mainstream" people - at least the "conservative mainstream" - are every bit as into conspiracy theories as the whackier elements of the Paul campaign grassroots.

When the response to one of your own being exposed for creating a hoax "hate crime" is to say that he must have been a liberal working covertly, you may want to check yourself before you start calling other conspiracy theories "whacky." You gotta love the Freepers!
