"Today’s Most Exciting New Political Dynamic"

Old Right Nader uses those word to describe the "emergent left-libertarian alliance" reports The American Conservative's Michael Tracey — Ralph Nader’s Grand Alliance. The man who earned my vote in '08 says the two sides,
    could get together on corporate entitlements, subsidies, handouts, giveaways, bailouts. Ron Paul is dead set against all that. So are a lot of libertarian-conservatives. In fact, it’s almost a mark of being a libertarian-conservative—in contrast to being a corporatist-conservative.

    Do you read all these right-wing theoreticians? Almost every one of them warned about excessive corporate concentration. Hayek did, [Frank] Meyer did, even Adam Smith did in his own way.

He leaves out the reflections of Russell Kirk on the dangers of too much deference to corporations. Kirk writes of this in one of his last books, published in the early 1990s -- Rights and Duties. Necessary reading for anyone interested in the American political and legal order.
