I like how all these libertarians have gotten on board with, "Actually, free trade is really bad," once Trump won.
Like who?
Does the H&R commentariat count as libertarian?

Thiel calls himself a libertarian and does things like write essays for Cato Unbound about how libertarianism is incompatible with democracy.

Now that I can read those "notes" on his speech...Yeah, Thiel remains a blithering fuck.

At least he isn't yammering about how he wants the blood of the young and to clone himself.

I think the best thing about John McAfee for President is that, by the time he gets done checking a bill for bugs or errors, it will have timed out.

Yeah that sounds good in theory. But just look at the Trump years. Every day should be a laugh riot with our Clown In Chief, but noooooo all the humor gets sucked right out with the clucking and the clutching, the gnashing and the fainting.

I fret about the camps. And the camps belong to Trump, all that suffering is to be laid at his feet make no mistake. That said, it seems both sides prefer the optics of the camps to doing something positive. But point taken. The camps are a nuclear buzzkill.

The Trump years are something we will look back on and laugh. Living through them is not so much fun. We laugh now about the reign of Caligula, but I am sure his contemporaries didn't enjoy it at all.

Sure they did. They just knew better than to post their jokes about him on Liber Faciērum.

BAH! If you're not an immigrant, living through the Trump years should be a laugh riot. The only reason it isn't is because mass hysteria.

Oh, I think Jennifer and the other women here would mostly disagree with that and on that count I'd agree with her. For that matter, the emboldening of the Alt-Right, which counts no few policemen in its ranks, has undoubtedly raised the anxiety level of minorities in general, and appropriately so, too.

Yeah, I don't see anything good coming from telling the security state "Don't worry, take the gloves off, the boss has you covered." Yes, the security state is shitty under any President, but differences of degree are still real differences.

And I think you're delusional if you think the security state is worse now that it was under W. And it didn't get any better under Obama.
