Paleos and protectionism

In my journey from generic libertarianism to paleo-libertarianism or even into Reactionism, I've found a lot to like at The American Conservative.  That said, I really don't understand the logic of this.

How is continuing to bailout the auto companies different from say the CCC?  For the amount that the US has spent bailing out the auto companies, we could have just paid all their workers to stay home.  These companies have the ability to destroy wealth on a monumental scale.  I can understand wanting to protect American workers.  But these people aren't workers anymore, they are on the dole.  The paleos should be able to see that these workers are paid by government, specifically Democrats in government, in exchange for continued union support of the Democratic party.
