Should We Really Give Trump A Chance? This Libertarian’s Answer is Hell No!!

People and politics are interesting facets of our society. During election cycles, there are people that preach concepts such as character and principle. We see candidates run that we either get behind 100% and some that we detest with all our might. However, once the election is over we see a mass flood of people come out of the woodworks and preach that we should give the victor a chance and can’t judge them until they actually do something.

The same thing is happening right now with President Trump. I have experienced multiple people through our social media presence that say we should give President Trump a chance and that we are just ignorant for questioning him and his new administration.

So, I started asking myself this morning whether or not I should give Trump a chance. I thought about it for all but 5 minutes and then said HELL NO!

I don’t need to wait for Trump to act in order to judge him. He has already said everything I need to hear and it is not my job to give him a pass, but rather his job to prove me wrong. I will not lay down and allow him to destroy this country because somebody online told me to give him a chance.

Libertarians are interesting people. The ones that claim to be of this great political philosophy preach all day every day about issues and principles, but then abandon that viewpoint when political pressure says they have too. Many of them are running around saying we need to give Trump a chance because their Republican friends have been in their face for weeks saying “you never know!”

Trump is a threat to Liberty and we already know that. Therefore, why give him a pass and allow him to destroy the very fabric of this Republic. In only two days we have already seen the stupidity and insanity coming out of this new White House and people are telling me to give him a chance?

The very fabric of the Libertarian philosophy is to reject force. This force can come in different ways and one is telling me that I have to give the guy a chance. It is my job to stay in the face of evil and question it at any level. We know that Trump is a threat to liberty and this republic and therefore we need to stay in his face.

  2. There was a time when Americans believed in freedom.

    The US is dying from a million cuts. Part of the reason the USA is a nanny police state now is that whenever there is a problem, the kneejerk reaction in the US is to call for a new law.

    Nanny state laws are not the best solution, however. Nanny state laws lead to more laws, higher fines, and tougher sentences. Thirty years ago, DWI laws were enacted that led to DWI checkpoints and lower DWI levels. Seatbelt laws led to backseat seatbelt laws, childseat laws, and pet seatbelt laws. Car liability insurance laws led to health insurance laws and gun liability laws. Smoking laws that banned smoking in buildings led to laws against smoking in parks and then bans against smoking in entire cities. Sex offender registration laws led to sex offender restriction laws and violent offender registration laws.

    Nanny state laws don’t make us safer, either. Nanny state laws lead people to be careless since they don’t need to have personal responsibility anymore. People don’t need to be careful crossing the street now because drunk-driving has been outlawed and driving while using a cellphone is illegal. People don’t investigate companies or carry out due diligence because businesses must have business licenses now.

    The main point of nanny state laws is not safety. The main purposes of more laws are control and revenue generation for the state.

    Another reason laws are enacted is because corporations give donations to lawmakers to stifle competition or increase sales.

    Many laws are contradictory, too. Some laws say watering lawns is required, while other laws say watering lawns is illegal.

    Many nanny state laws that aim to solve a problem can be fixed by using existing laws. If assault is already illegal, why do we need a new law that outlaws hitting umpires?

    Nanny state laws are not even necessary. If everything was legal would you steal, murder, and use crack cocaine? Aren’t there other ways to solve problems besides calling the police? Couldn’t people educate or talk to people who bother them? Couldn’t people be sued for annoying behavior? Couldn’t people just move away? Even if assault was legal, wouldn’t attackers risk being killed or injured, too? Do people have consciences? Having no laws doesn’t mean actions have no consequences.

    If there is no victim, there is no crime.

    We don’t need thousands of laws when we only need 10.

    Freedom is not just a one way street. You can only have freedom for yourself if you allow others to have it.

    Should swimming pools be banned because they are dangerous? Hammers? Bottles? Rocks? Energy drinks? Pillows?

    Where does it end?

    Control freaks might get angry when a neighbor owns three indoor cats, but what did the neighbor take from them? Why should this be illegal? Is outlawing cats something a free country should do? Doesn’t banning everything sound like the opposite of freedom?

    Instead of getting mad at people who like freedom, why don’t people realize that freedom is a two way street?

    If you allow others to paint their house purple then you can, too.

    If you allow others to own a gun then you can, too.

    If you allow others to swear then you can, too.

    If you allow others to gamble then you can, too.

    Who wants to live in a prison?

    Think. Question everything.
