Well I found the word on the neoconservative web site Flopping Aces, and judging by the cheesy Ron-Paul-as-Captain-Picard picture on that page, I think it's safe to assume it's a Star Trek reference. Of course it's meant as an insult. But as a longtime Trekkie and proud "Ron Paul cultist," I don't mind adopting the label and displaying it with dignity. :-P
A proud advocate of the Ron Paul empire, which isn't an empire at all. So named for the aggressive and elusive nature of these maybe-real probably-spamming so-called masses (to which I happily belong, and trust me, we exist and we aren't spammers). That, and it's a Star Trek reference. So, win.
