Socialism vs. Trumpism — Where Are The Libertarians?

The U.S. government continues to steamroll over the freedom of American citizens. Under the Trump Administration, it’s done in a less PC-manner, but the walls continue to close in on liberty in America. Meanwhile Socialists see this as an opportunity to put the final nail in the American Dream coffin. Will the ideas of Liberty rise up to oppose this tag team?

Libertarians have so many great ideals, but for it to work people must be morally sound, and we all know that is not always the case. Socialism doesn't work when the leaders are corrupt. I think we need a healthy balance of libertarian and some social programs. I am sure that socialists will not take over.

It was a mistake to put "socialim" in the title. It attracts all the crazies to the comments section.

It would sound pretty ridiculous. The argument isn't free cars for everyone, the argument is "Let's stop spending so much money on maintaining this 100 foot fence, and lower it down to a 50 foot fence, then take the money from that and put bobby through college and treat annies cancer". But hey, who am i to correct you so that you properly represent your opponents positions.

Ron Paul, you are an idiot. Your helper, is an idiot. Nobody wants free stuff. Only a dumbass says that. What we want is to get the reward for the work we do. No one person works harder than another, why should someone get more than another? Yes, people are better at some things there and others but that doesn’t make them worth more than others. As far as I am concerned, I am the only libertarian. I am concerned about my liberty and my liver T means nothing unless everyone has liberty.

Just started this video but my usually reliable Ron Paul seems scared of what Ms Cortez actually MIGHT represent, and this fella talking with him starts by blurt in our FREE CARS FOR EVERYONE , type of socialism, which is not what Cortez and other Dem Socialist are saying..let me watch some more…I think if Mr Paul went into details of Cortez platform.be would see more in common then not. unequal distribution of income a primary one. Mr Paul says what do.we do.about runaway military spending. He should definitely read Cortez's platform. Throwing Santa Claus spending in Cortez direction is… Read more »

Ron, most understand your job is to sell Rockefeller and now Koch Libertarianism and the Austrian (Neoliberal) philosophy that enshrines the oligarchs. The Kochs and for that matter, other fascist institutions’ (e.g. John Birch Society) have been very successful in unwinding Roosevelt’s New Deal. This strategy started with the coup in the 1930s oligarchs to remove Roosevelt and install a fascist government, but thanks to Smedley Butler that coup by the oligarchs' fascists failed. Since then, institutions such as the National Association of Manufacturers and the American Liberty League have been working feverishly to crush any remnants of the New… Read more »

The real problem with power in this world is the control of financing power behind it. Everything is too big to fail and it's created too many dependencies, protected too many interests and built + secured personal wealth, that's why this bad oppressive system cannot (easily) die.

Ron Paul, Our philosophy and candidates of our persuasion would win if only our elections weren't rigged. This is the biggest problem outside of the fiat currency problem we have today.

Dr. Paul Let's hope that Alexandria will go after the military spending and let the taxpayers keep half and spend the other half to social security , taking care to the vets and other beneficial programs.We might get a half way decent person with her ,hopefully more like a Dennis Kucinich democrat at least maybe we could have some peace in the world. If this young ladies really wants to help the poor , she will sooner or later will understand like Martin Luther King that the poor suffer when we waste all our our money on wars.

Education is already free – online, most university classes and even k-12. Food is almost free if people grow it themselves. There's very cheap arable land just waiting to be developed in almost all 50 states. A home, food, and ecucation can be had for very little $ and some hard work in almost all 50 states.

This is the first time I've seen Ron Paul flat out lie and mislead people. One example, #MedicareForAll cuts cost from $10,000/capita to $5,000/capita and covers everyone. There is no way to not pay for healthcare, we're going to pay for it one way or the other. It happens to be most effectively done with single payer. I guess in hindsight, Paul never tells you that municipal water is generally cheaper than those with private water companies. I'm so sick of liars in our politics. I understand people have their ideologies, and that's okay. But when you become such a… Read more »

Jeff Bezos has $140 billion dollars. These dumb fucks are worried about a democratically elected government having the power to pay for healthcare efficiently?? Or to pass legislation to bring people out of poverty? What a couple of idiots, willfully ignorant clowns. Go back to 1955 Paul.

Living in a Scandinavian "socialist" economy (Denmark) I can report that its not as bad as these guys make it out to be: statistically levels of equality, trust, wealth-distribution, hapiness, climate action, education and more are much higher here than in a more capitalist society driven by the same values that trump embodies: egoism, competition, profit-accumulation, individualism-over-collective-responsibility and anti-social behaviour. These are the moral values of a toddler. IMO, Trump is just a symbol of a more general cultural fatique. I'm always baffled by how culturally self-centered American Culture can be (greatest nation in the World) when It's in such… Read more »

It's wrong for an individual to steal. It's wrong for a group of individuals to steal. It's wrong to hire someone to steal for you. It's wrong for government to steal…since government is made up of individuals. It's wrong to steal even if a majority of people "vote" for government to steal. Majorities don't make theft OK. Socialists are forever trying to make theft acceptable in the public eye. Theft with a smile. Socialists use euphemisms like "sharing" and "fair". Hundreds of millions went to their graves at the hands of their Socialist governments during the 1900's. A century of… Read more »

They want things "very quickly and without effort". Would it be fair to say that the elites and ignorant masses are almost identical in that respect?

the socialist rhetoric is easy to buy because they promise you everything under the sun for free, libertarians have a harder time because they preach personal responsibility and that's hard for some people to buy.

Here in Michigan, 1/2 of the Libertarian Party are devout Socialists.
The majority of the rest are stuck in that 15 yr old Mentality, as usual.

I connected to hear some new views, that being said, hearing there is a difference between an economy of debt helping people, or printing the same paper in order to support insane projects, da… conclusion? failed! Sorry hombre.

Right here and I am sure you will see them as a party grow more and more as Millennials put down their smartbrainwashing devices and actually look around and see they have been played by both sides!

So Ron Paul who is 1) economically illiterate because he doesn't understand MMT. 2) spreads nonsense about socialism and is into laissez faire capitalism 3) who published hundreds of racist newsletters in the 80s calling black men “animals” and referred to Martin Luther King Day as “hate whitey day,” recently tweeted (then deleted) a full on racist and antisemitic political cartoon. He said a staffer posted it, and so the page then replaced it with a propaganda post about socialism and also against political correctness. https://www.facebook.com/ronpaul/photos/a.10150115112081686.277590.6233046685/10156754588246686/?hc_location=ufi Dr. Paul seems to want to return to a time (which is now btw)… Read more »

Socialism is the only way to save, not only the US, but the whole world. Stop lying to the people just because you are scared.

Fucking idiot, all those things you say people can't have, we already have them here in Europe, and though times are hard, some things like acess to medical care or free education or pensions, are untouchable. Keep on lying to the American people, with some traces of truth, you have done it pretty well. Keep the Americans stupid!

Socialism is a cure for a symptom whose root cause is a corrupt monetary system controlled by a minority of sick fucks.
