"The Rise of Extremely Conservative Politics
They are talking about us, folk, and it is not to create a reach out effort.
Ii is clear that we will be under active attack in a Clinton administration. The niceties of the differences between libertarianism and the right are not going to matter.
We have to be on high alert for whatever they are plotting here and create a unified front against it."
Robert, on this website you used to argue something like, "a Hilary Clinton presidency would be better for liberty than a Trump one because of the opposition to the government it would generate."
Do you still 100% believe this? Or, do you recognize that the SJW's backed by a Clinton administration would pose a bigger threat to liberty and have more success in crushing dissent and removing liberties?
Regularly at EPJ, after I point out and warn of a horrific Hillary policy, similar comments along the lines: "Do you still support Hillary over Trump."
First of all, I do not support Hillary. Remember, I formed Libertarians Against Clinton, Trump, Johnson and Stein.
I see no significant difference between Trump and Hillary. They are both interventionists who think they should be in charge of interventions. Trump mumbles something about reducing business regulations at the same time he warns businesses about opening plants in Mexico.
There is just nothing non-interventionist about this guy. Even from a political correctness perspective, he is weak. He wants to coerce employers to grant mothers six weeks paid family leave after the birth of a child. It's the right thing to do, you know.
When you have two interventionists where the differences do not appear significant,(I would expect Trump to use American troops on the ground before Hillary) you then have to look at things from a strategic perspective. And from this perspective, Hillary is the preferred candidate. There are literally tens of millions who will object to Hillary policies. It is extremely fertile ground for libertarians to provide the intellectual arguments to the anti-Hillary crowd,
A Trump presidency would be different. It would dilute the anti-interventionist roar of the crowd. Whenever, I post a comment about a horrific Trump economic policy, I never get the outraged feedback that I get when I write something about Hillary.
The Left will be anti-Trump during a Trump presidency but there first instinct is interventionism so they are going to be difficult converts and to many Trump supporters he can do no wrong.
Thus from a strategic perspective, Hillary will provide many more opportunities to advance the libertarian argument. She is the better strategic option, although she will be terrible on almost every issue.
Ho, ho, Ho, Hillary must go!
As for Hillary attempting to crackdown on libertarians and the right, that is much more likely (though I am not sure Trump is going to be any better when it comes to the press in general), but as I pointed out in my speech we are a tough breed. Trying to shut us down will make us even tougher and we will be able to out think and out maneuver the plodding Hillary.
