The other day I was on The Real News discussing the "libertarian challenge to [Donald] Trump."
Click above to watch the interview, in which I note that the Republican Party has long co-opted libertarian rhetoric while growing the size, scope, and spending of government at nearly every turn. While I'm happy to witness the possible end—or same thing, complete reboot—of the GOP, I'm always worried by the rise of Donald Trump. Not because he represents the absolute end of the American Way of Life per se, but because he is in fact a perfect distillation of the conservative agenda that has been pushed for the entire 21st century.
That said, if Trump—whom Ted Cruz and National Review have assailed for being soft on immigration—got his way on deporting 12 million (his count) illegals, he would certainly have to create a reasonable facsimile of a police state, in which we'd all be having our papers checked one way or another. So there is that.
