9. Paul Craig Roberts was a devoted Reaganite, wasn't he? An advocate of the position

that the Civil Rights Act institutionalizes discrimination against white males? Winner of an award from ALEC?

Let's take a quick peek at his notion of sound economic theory:

If you want to understand what is happening to Microsoft, read “Atlas Shrugged” ... Hank Rearden, inventor of the fabulous Rearden metal, is harassed and blackmailed by unaccountable government until he, like other persecuted businessmen, shrugs and walks away to join John Galt in a passive resistance ... Rand is scathing in her comparisons of the government class with the entrepreneurial class. She could rewrite her story today using real characters ...
Bill Gates, Meet Ayn Rand
Paul Craig Roberts (2001.01.02 )

Want to guess who he supported in 2012?

... Ron Paul is our last chance .... the other candidates offer no hope whatsoever ...
