A Paleoconservative is basically a polite word for a White Supremacist Neo-Nazi. Paleoconservatives believe in crippling the US economy by shutting down the borders to immigrants, despite the fact that most Americans are descended from immigrants. Paleocons are political inbreds, who believe in undermining American interests by withdrawing troops from the Middle East and appeasing terrorist regimes in the Muslim world. A Paleocon is typically a poorly educated White Christian in the American deep South who believes, as the Nazis did, that the white race is biologically superior to non-white races and that Blacks, Hispanics, and Jews are waging a secret war against whites to rule the world. Paleocons tend to fall for paranoid conspiracy theories like that. Not to be confused with Neoconservatives or Neocons, who are great nation - builders and passionately believe in spreading democracy and freedom, as well as liberal immigration policies.
Paleoconservatives are basicall inbred nativist white-trash in fancy suits.
Contrary to what the idiot 'Realpolitik' added, Paleoconservatives or 'old conservatives' are not white supremacists or white anything-ists. Paleocons are simply Constitutional conservatives who believe in small government, low spending, national sovereignty, and maximum personal freedom. A neoconservative, by contrast, is simply a liberal Republican. In order to properly illustrate what paleoconservativism is, we must draw parallels between paleoconservatives and neoconservatives (aka "the Republican base").
A paleoconservative believes foremost in the Constitution as the highest law of the land. Any law or measure that rejects, misinterprets or by-passes the Constitution is unacceptable. Neocons, on the other hand, can frequently be heard making statements like "The Constitution isn't a suicide note" to justify unconstitutional or Constitution-bending actions. Mind, this only applies in the neocon mind if the actions are undertaken by a Republican president or congress.
A paleoconservative is a firm believer in the Jeffersonian view of smaller, less powerful government. Neocons claim to believe in smaller government, but frequently overlook that in 8 years, a Republican president and congress doubled the size and cost of government. The main difference between a neocon and a paleocon is that the neocons will give you a pass on this behavior as long as you have an '(R)' beside your name, where paleocons will not. Most paleocons are in favor of repealing the Income T...
Paleocons are not nerly as paranoid as their neocon warmongering counterparts. They are interested in a balanced budget and cleaning up our national debt before spending wildly on the military budget.Preferable to the neocons who have an overtly aggressive foriegn policy(I.E. bomb everyone),but who have no domestic agenda woth the name.Unless of course you call the Rape of the Constitution a domestic agenda.Not to be confused with fascists, who are actually more tolerant than they are.For another definition of neocons see anathema.
Paleocons are actually interested in humanity surviving, even if that portion of humanity is primarily white, upperclass and a member of their golf club.
