11. Indeed, Sir: You Are Right on all Counts
Not only is there no evidence Paul's supporters are a group worth pursuing, there is a good deal of reason to believe they are not only not worth pursuing, but unreachable even if pursued. Paul's support is comprised mostly of hard right libertarians, whose views of government and the social contract are utterly incompatible with the views of progressives and leftists. The more energetic among them tend to come from the militia and posse comitatus strands of the political fringes: people committed to delusional views of political life, subscribers to a panoply of conspiracist constructs, and in general wholly divorced from actual politics, and glad to be so.
