    If you think Trump is an authoritarian dickhead, just wait till a guy like Bernie clocks in at the White House. You'll quickly realize we were right to defend the 2nd amendment.

    Idk a single politician who has ever run on a true libertarian socialist agenda. I have zero issues with people voluntarily pooling resources to lead a better life. Honestly, it’s the last hope for Millennials. We’ll never be homeowners unless we start living multiple family names to a single home.

    We don’t think he’s a libertarian. Chapo users just like him because he is a socialist in the slightest. They don’t like the other members of the Democratic Party but see sanders as a method of pushing a socialist agenda in a more public light.

    Trump is the most libertarian president ever, that's why he's enacting a national emergency (which he admits actually isn't an emergency) to bypass Congress to get money for an ineffectual wall and use eminent domain to take land from people sitting on the border.

    Very libertarian.

  • tzoneshard

    Nothing remotely libertarian about originalist judges, withdrawal of troops from conflict, showing open disdain for the Federal Reserve, signing criminal justice reform, and supporting legislation that would allow the state’s to decide whether or not marijuana and other substances are legal. Nope. Not at all.

    Of course, that’s not to say that he supports policies that do stand against individual liberty and the free market (tariffs, ballooning debt, red flag and bump stocks, as some quick examples) but to say that there’s no overlap whatsoever is akin to not having anything to say other than “orange man bad”

    First, I'd say you should add a third non-overlapping circle labeled "Conservative" or "Republican." Fact is, Trump is determinedly non-ideological, which can mean "flexible, practical" or can mean "unprincipled, amoral", depending on whether you agree with him on a specific issue.

    Second, one thing I like and don't see mentioned elsewhere in comments is progress at the FDA to speed the review and approval processes for both patent and generic drugs.

    "What is the worldly religion of the Jew? Huckstering. What is his worldly God? Money.…. Money is the jealous god of Israel, in face of which no other god may exist. Money degrades all the gods of man – and turns them into commodities…. The bill of exchange is the real god of the Jew. His god is only an illusory bill of exchange…. The chimerical nationality of the Jew is the nationality of the merchant, of the man of money in general."

    Holy Shit Karl, that's pretty racist

    Only communists only want people to have guns so they can overthrow free market capitalism (the best economic system conceivable, morally and practically), execute the rich, execute political dissidents, execute the "wrong" types of socialists, set up a totalitarian State, and then later take away the guns so people can't revolt.

    Gee, we have so much in common /s.

    Just because I agree with someone on most things doesn't mean I can't disagree on a given issue, Reagan was wrong on this issue (assuming the quote isn't just totally taken out of context). Just because I think he was a pretty good president overall doesn't mean I have to agree with every single word he ever said

    Trump's bump stock ban was some bullshit but Pelosi pretty much threatened to use the National Emergency law to take away all the scary black guns now that Trump is using the same screwed up law to pay for a border fence.

    Trump ignores congressional budget rules for a fence so Pelosi promises to gut the second ammendment.

    Seems like a reasonable response. /s

    I know there is a lot of left leaning vs right leaning arguments here but let's not ignore the bigger danger to freedom. Land rights and runaway spending are not the same as government moves to disarm the population.
