Just read this. Seems what I have read on this site tells me this may be a reason why we are where we are.

From the abstract:
The relationship between ideology and conspiratorial thinking was mediated by a strong distrust of officialdom and paranoid ideation, both of which were higher among conservatives, consistent with Hofstadter's account of the paranoid style in American politics.
