• On Trump

    From Tracker1@VERT/TRN to DOVE-Net.Debate on Saturday, November 07, 2020 10:23:44
    Just to clarify, I'm not a Trump fan or a Republican. I am a
    Libertarian who believes that individual freedom should be maximized and government function should be limited to common defense and essential infrastructure.

    My views are largely incompatible with Marxist-style Socialism, Fascism
    or similar views. This does not mean I support corporatism at all, I
    think corporations are a trade in exchange for limited liability and
    should have limited support collectively.

    I also feel that there are pragmatic approaches that aren't the ideal
    (from a libertarian PoV), but at least lead to less govt and more
    personal freedom vs what is often proposed by D or R politicians.

    Re: Trump, I just don't like the media outright lying. Trump lies,
    leave it at that, there's no need to counter with more deceit. All in
    all, not as bad as typically represented, not great either.

    This also. Many members of the press will claim impartiality if
    confronted with this, but those same members were the ones crying and
    throwing fits during the election results in 2016. Difficult to claim impartiality when you do that.
