First off, I have to say that I like robots. They outperform humans at many tasks and are rarely snooty about it. People interested in robots sometimes discuss what's referred to as the “singularity,” a point at which artificial intelligence generally becomes more intelligent than humans. While reading and listening to some of the political discussions going on, it seems almost certain that day has already arrived.
I've been called a “Paulbot” even though I haven't declared my support for any party or politician. That's something I haven't done for a very long time. I haven't campaigned for Ron Paul. I am however, using my knowledge to help with the public process of vetting candidates. That is something I have done for many years and would be doing whether Ron Paul was in the race or not.
I sense however, that some of the people who seem to use the term “Paulbot” disparagingly really want to belong to something, and just don't know how to join up. The other candidates make it easier. You don't have to know anything – in fact they don't want you to know anything. Just listen to the carefully crafted slogans, milled through millions of dollars in focus groups, and respond with your feelings. If you're part of the market they've focused their advertising to capture, get on board little doggie!
