A Libertarian’s Ramblings on this Election

Like so many of you, at 2:41 am elec­tion night I let out the most tremen­dous sigh of relief. As a lib­er­tar­ian, I am greatly relieved that Hillary Clin­ton lost the elec­tion. Com­ing after eight years of the rad­i­cal and fun­da­men­tal trans­for­ma­tion insti­tuted by Pres­i­dent Obama there would have been very lit­tle left of our Con­sti­tu­tional Repub­lic. Pres­i­dent Hillary would have con­tin­ued gov­ern­ing by impe­r­ial edict, just like Pres­i­dent Obama, and the spine­less Repub­li­cans in both houses of con­gress would have con­tin­ued to noth­ing except whine. Like every­one else that under­stands and respects the Con­sti­tu­tion, what scared me the most was the fact Pres­i­dent Clin­ton would have had the oppor­tu­nity to nom­i­nate two or three Supreme Court Jus­tices, I don’t want to freak you out too much but it was rumored that Hillary Clin­ton was con­sid­er­ing appoint­ing Pres­i­dent Obama. It is abun­dantly clear that who­ever she would have appointed it would have been a rad­i­cal left­ist like her­self. Reli­gious free­dom, the right to bear arms, and free speech would have been severely curtailed.

I did not cel­e­brate Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump’s vic­tory. I am cau­tiously opti­mistic that he might pos­si­bly be an OK pres­i­dent. He is a big gov­ern­ment type. A lot of his posi­tions are more closely aligned with those of Democ­rats, although not rad­i­cal social­ist Democ­rats like Pres­i­dent Obama and Hillary Clin­ton. Dur­ing the cam­paign he promised to gov­ern more like a con­ser­v­a­tive and promised to nom­i­nate strict con­struc­tion­al­ists to the Supreme Court. Even if he does not carry through on all of his promises he still will be infi­nitely bet­ter than Pres­i­dent Clin­ton would have been.

Both the Repub­li­can and Demo­c­rat par­ties were major losers dur­ing this elec­tion. They both nom­i­nated such abysmal can­di­dates. Both George Wash­ing­ton and Thomas Jef­fer­son warned about the dan­gers of a two party sys­tem. We should have lis­tened. We the peo­ple need to scrap the two major par­ties. They have a com­plete stran­gle­hold and the entire polit­i­cal process and both are cor­rupt to the core. It will be a long dif­fi­cult process but it is nec­es­sary. Unfor­tu­nately the Lib­er­tar­ian Party also pro­duced an abysmal nom­i­nee this election.

The main­stream media really out did them­selves this elec­tion when it comes to lib­eral media bias. They actively became an exten­sion of the Clin­ton cam­paign. Unfor­tu­nately far too many peo­ple rely on them exclu­sively for their news. That locker room chat video came way too close to being the decid­ing fac­tor for this elec­tion. This prob­lem needs solu­tion before the next pres­i­den­tial election.

We also need to break the lib­eral stran­gle­hold on higher edu­ca­tion. Col­leges are train­ing a gen­er­a­tion of social jus­tice war­riors who believe social­ism is supe­rior to free mar­ket cap­i­tal­ism. They also believe that the Con­sti­tu­tion and our found­ing prin­ci­ples are garbage because the found­ing fathers were noth­ing but while, slave hold­ing racists.

Defeat­ing Hillary Clin­ton was an emer­gency stop gap mea­sure to pre­vent the destruc­tion of our Con­sti­tu­tional Repub­lic. Restor­ing our Con­sti­tu­tional Repub­lic will take decades of hard work. More on that in future articles.

Like so many of you, at 2:41 am election night I let out the most tremendous sigh of relief.  As a libertarian, I am greatly relieved that Hillary Clinton lost the election.   Coming after eight years of the radical and fundamental transformation instituted by President Obama there would have been very little left of our Constitutional Republic.   President Hillary would have continued governing by imperial edict, just like President Obama, and the spineless Republicans in both houses of congress would have continued to nothing except whine.  Like everyone else that understands and respects the Constitution, what scared me the most was the fact President Clinton would have had the opportunity to nominate two or three Supreme Court Justices,   I don’t want to freak you out too much but it was rumored that Hillary Clinton was considering appointing President Obama.  It is abundantly clear that whoever she would have appointed it would have been a radical leftist like herself.    Religious freedom, the right to bear arms, and free speech would have been severely curtailed.

I did not celebrate President Donald Trump’s victory.  I am cautiously optimistic that he might possibly be an OK president.  He is a big government type.  A lot of his positions are more closely aligned with those of Democrats, although not radical socialist Democrats like President Obama and Hillary Clinton.  During the campaign he promised to govern more like a conservative and promised to nominate strict constructionalists to the Supreme Court.  Even if he does not carry through on all of his promises he still will be infinitely better than President Clinton would have been.

Both the Republican and Democrat parties were major losers during this election.  They both nominated such abysmal candidates.  Both George Washington and Thomas Jefferson warned about the dangers of a two party system.   We should have listened. We the people need to scrap the two major parties.  They have a complete stranglehold and the entire political process and both are corrupt to the core.  It will be a long difficult process but it is necessary.  Unfortunately the Libertarian Party also produced an abysmal nominee this election.

The mainstream media really out did themselves this election when it comes to liberal media bias.  They actively became an extension of the Clinton campaign.  Unfortunately far too many people rely on them exclusively for their news.  That locker room chat video came way too close to being the deciding factor for this election.  This problem needs solution before the next presidential election.

We also need to break the liberal stranglehold on higher education.  Colleges are training a generation of social justice warriors who believe socialism is superior to free market capitalism.  They also believe that the Constitution and our founding principles are garbage because the founding fathers were nothing but while, slave holding racists.

Defeating Hillary Clinton was an emergency stop gap measure to prevent the destruction of our Constitutional Republic.  Restoring our Constitutional Republic will take decades of hard work.  More on that in future articles.
