The Last Crusader, The Lost Crusader?
Today's paleoconservatives and paleolibertarians are a very youthful lot, formed by opposition to the neoconservatives' wars.
With all the alliances that that entailed, with the lead into a searing critique of neoliberal capitalism, and with the formative political campaigns having been, if anything, those of Ron Paul.
They scarcely know who Pat Buchanan is, and they regard it as self-evident that they would never vote for Donald Trump, who embodies literally everything that they define themselves by despising.
To a man, they are of the view that, with Rand Paul out of the running, the only candidate worth considering is Bernie Sanders, even if only as the best of a bad lot.
