Trump is not a libertarian or populist he is just an extreme right conservative

his policy centers around extreme nationalism, authoritarianism and traditionalism, or in a single word: fascism

you can't close borders and be libertarian. it's an absolutely direct contradiction to the core ideology. you can't restrict trade and the movement of people and be libertarian. that's like being a socialist who slashes regulations and taxes to help the rich

well yeah you ask them about open borders and amnesty they freak the fuck out despite it being the actual position of the US Libertarian Party

because the percentage of actual capitalist libertarians is so minuscule, it's conservatives by a different name

I know you know this though

fascism and populism are kind of similar/overlapping I think, but yes, he's just a far right authoritarian

I think populist is pretty neutral

there's left populism and right populism and they mean different things

agreed, populist can mean many things, but it's about the general will of the people. Fascism is also about the general will. Sometimes I wonder if Hitler and Mussolini were influenced by Rousseau but couldn't say so because he was French

I imagine Sanders doing tariffs as well provided he could combine it with taxes on corporations that outsource

democrats now being the champion party of free trade is a bit problematic for me, both Ocasio-Cortez and my local Beto have nothing in their platform about outsourcing or trade deals that hurt workers

mainly an issue that's important to the Midwest, but democrats can't afford to lose the Midwest in 2020

he's down in the polls

but the biggest issue is that 50% of those poll'd just didn't know who he was

so we'll see, I just think because less than half of Texans have a favorable view of Cruz, this is a pretty good chance

People like us will throw money at it but no. We’re fucked. When one side only cares about making the other side sad, they will always win.

Itís within the realm of possibility

But not likely

He had 1000 people show up in Denton, which admittedly is a blue town, but in a red county

No idea, but I am voting Beto obviously

If he was going up against anyone else Iíd say he had no chance but since itís Cruz and most of the GOP hates him, Beto has a shot

The straight ticket voters are the issue

i suggest you really take it to another thread before you make CW more delusional about his theory being popular -- because the number of pages for this thread is in the thousands!

The latest IP reading would appear to suggest that 132.251.150.157 people have now visited the summary page.
