Dispatch from Crazytown: Top 10 Right-wing Conpiracy Theories

The highly paranoid, largely delusional conspiracy crowd is out there—in Oklahoma and many other places, still foaming at the mouth about secret concentration camps, black helicopters and a slew of other whacked-out anti-government fantasies.

This would be comical, except that many of these folks are true believers, enabled by loose talk on Internet, talk radio and Fox News (Glenn Beck springs to mind).

The good folks over at Alternet have compiled a helpful list of the Top Ten such theories, including secret government programs, gun confiscation, "Amero" dollars and the like.

It's entertaining stuff, if you have a grip on reality.

Unfortunately, some of our fellow citizens have been living in a fact-free zone, where reality and fantasy are highly subjective concepts.

See the entire list here.
