    Like Paul, Bachmann, Reagan, etc. They're the crazies. And many of them are just cynical and disengenuous opportunists who merely pretend to believe it to fool the rubes, and maybe try to convince themselves that they believe it.

    History is filled with crazy fools who keep trying to reinvent the perpetual motion machine in one context or another. And with clever con men who try to sell these machines to unsuspecting rubes. E.g. Jefferson the unrealistic fool and Burr the craven opportunist. We've always had these types.
