Sorry you have never looked into it, but the Neoconservatives ("Faux Conservatives") came out of the Straussian wing of the Chicago School. Irving Kristol who was the long-time chairman of the American Communist Party (yep, William's daddy), was one of the original Neocons and was actively involved with Bush and Cheney to take over the Reagan admministration.
It is true they may not be mainline communists that the media tells you about, but they are believers in the ideas of Trotsky. So, they work towards world communism and believe in the sovietization of North America. Since we have had a fascist (corporatist) financial system since the 40's, they have taken advantage of it. But, if you look at what is happening, they are slowly reversing the game on the corporations.
Did you never see Ron Paul's speech about the Neocons?
"In the beginning of a change the patriot is a scarce man, and brave, and hated and scorned. When his cause succeeds, the timid join him, for then it costs nothing to be a patriot."--Mark Twain
