Libertarian Shared Ideals and the Contrast Between Trump and Clinton:
The only thing that seems to be true of all libertarians (left, right, anarchist, etc.) is a distrust of centralized power in one form or another. Leftists fear the giant multinational corporation. Rightists fear the federal government and the constant globalization of power, undermining national sovereignty and even further taking decision making away from the individual.
The way I see it, both of these are a threat.
Both of these work together to undermine individual freedoms.
The interests of capitalists like Soros and Buffett are the same as those of the bureaucrats, like the Clintons, and it seems like there is no person in a place of prominence around to stand up against them.
Or maybe there is.
Yes, he’s a pile of shit.
Yes, he’s uninformed about most issues, if not all.
But his instincts tend to be right.
Elections are rigged. The media is biased. Trade deals are unfair, countries are taking advantage of them, and they aren’t helping the American people and thus should be reformed. Immigration is a tool of the rich to get cheaper labor, and on top of that, dangerous people are coming in that we have no way of screening. Shut it down until we fix the problems with the immigration system. We should work with Russia and Assad to crush common enemies. Wars are a drain on the economy. Deregulate. Lower taxes. Make education more affordable. Legalize weed across all fifty states. Increase American energy production and undermine OPEC.
Yeah, okay, he said nasty things in a tape twenty years ago and sexually assaulted some women.
Does that mean he is going to be worse than Clinton?
Tons of good leaders have done garbage things. JFK, Eisenhower, Churchill, Lincoln.
And if sexual impropriety is disqualifying and undermines one’s ability to be a good leader, why did that not apply to Hillary Clinton’s husband, Bill Clinton?
He is, by all accounts, credible and not so credible, as bad as Trump. Or worse.
He has a list of rape accusers a mile long.
He cheated on his wife too.
While Trump was talking about grabbing pussy, Bill Clinton was putting cigars out inside a pussy.
If a moral figure is what America wants, Darrel Castle, Gary Johnson, Evan McMullen, Zoltan Istvan, and Jill Stein are all better choices.
Well, maybe not Gary Johnson.
I am not telling you to vote for Trump. Or for anyone else. Vote for who you think is the best, or don’t vote at all.
I am just trying to make clear the contrast between the two major party candidates.
As the final debate is coming up, Trump has one last chance to prove himself to be more than a school yard bully and an uninformed rich kid reality star.
He can, instead, come off as a trailblazer and a pragmatic businessman. He probably won’t be, since he is an idiot and seems unwilling to do extensive debate prep or work with his party.
In conclusion, Trump is stupid and awful. Clinton is evil and awful. Libertarians distrust central authority while hating on the one candidate that has pissed off all forms of centralized authority.
