    Ralph Nader supports Ron Paul? The guy who made his name pushing for stricter government regulations on automakers likes the libertarian?

    Well, Nader hasn’t officially endorsed Paul for president, and he does compare siding with libertarians to FDR’s siding with Stalin in World War II. So there’s that.

    Regardless, this won’t help Nader endear himself to a liberal establishment that already blames him for the 2000 election. But maybe it does lend some credence to the chatter about “liberaltarianism” we sometimes hear.
