My “libertarian” cousin thinks Democrats are “communists” and Trump is for “small government”.
I’ve tried to point him toward this sub since, even though I’m a far left libertarian (we can debate my existence another time), this is the only place I’ve found that actually seems to espouse libertarian ideals without becoming a conservative circle jerk. I have to admit though, that I am a recent convert to libertarianism, so I’m coming up short with specifics about why my cousin is misinformed in some of the ways he is thinking about the current administration.
It’s a definite likelihood that I’m wrong about a whole lot too, but it seems most reasonable folks (here at least) agree that Democrats are anything but communists, and Trump is anything but small government.
I’d really appreciate some information and some education about these topics.
Thanks for keeping this one of the only places with unhampered discussion about divisive topics.
