To Anyone Who Believes Trump is Ripping Apart the Military Industrial Complex...

...please explain this comment Trump made yesterday during his speech at CPAC:
We're also putting in a massive budget request for our beloved military. And we will be substantially upgrading all of our military, all of our military, offensive, defensive, everything. Bigger and better and stronger than ever before, and hopefully we'll never have to use it, but nobody's going to mess with us, folks. Nobody. It will be one of the greatest military buildups in American history. 
Trump is not fighting the MIC. He is fighting elements of the intelligence community and that is about it---and wait until he starts shipping combat troops to the Middle East.

There is very little that a libertarian can support  Trump on. He is pretty much bad news of foreign and domestic policy. He has zero appreciation for liberty, His baseline thinking is that strong-arm government can solve problems caused be earlier "weak" administrations.



  1. Bigger federal budgets are on the way but those of us who were actually paying attention (meaning the non Trump kool-aid drinkers) already knew that.

  2. I eagerly await the defense of this.

    Weapons buildup always precipitates weapons use.
