PostSubject: President Trumpís First Year Was a Step Backward for Liberty   Thu Jan 04, 2018 3:18 am

As President Trumpís first year ends, libertarians are celebrating tax cuts and deregulation that are no doubt steps in the right direction. Perhaps the presidentís authoritarian bark was worse than his bite, and heís more interested in freeing markets than acting on populist rhetoric. But it all sounds a bit like when people on the left sing the praises of one Richard Milhous Nixon.

Progressives wax poetic about Nixonís long list of left-friendly policies that included diplomatic relations with China and advocacy of alternative energy. They might like some things Nixon did, but was he good for their movement? Of course not: his ďsilent majorityĒ all but spelled an end to the í60s and ushered in Republican presidents for 20 of the next 24 years. Similarly, President Trump has enacted some pro-market policies, but on the whole sets back the cause of liberty.
