It looks like famed libertarian hero and perennial presidential candidate Ron Paul is no big fan of Donald Trump.
That’s why he said this on CNN about him:
Ron Paul had the same anti-establishment sentiment that Trump seems to be capitalizing on, but his libertarian ideology must recoil at the big government solutions the Donald puts forth.
Trump wants to expand Medicare, and he doesn’t detail at all how he would bring down the debt, or decrease the size of government. And he’s given out many signs that he would vastly increase the power of the executive at the expense of the Constitutional checks and balances ideal.
And it really seems like Trump’s rabid following bears many similarities to those that followed Ron Paul – will they listen to the libertarian superstar of yesteryear?
What do you think? Is Ron Paul right to say that Trump isn’t ideologically any different from Hillary Clinton? Let us know in the comments section below!!
