Tonight’s Debate Is Over Power, Not Freedom

“Make no mistake about it: tonight’s presidential debate between President Biden and former President Trump is simply about power. Who is going to wield the reins of power over the welfare-regulatory-warfare state? Will it be Biden and the Democrats or will it be Trump and the Republicans? Which ones will wield the power to tax, regulate, control, direct, command, conscript, sacrifice, torture, or assassinate us? Equally important, which ones will wield the power to give us tax-funded welfare largess, including Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, food stamps, educational grants, subsidies, bailouts, and all the rest of the welfare-warfare state benefits. From a libertarian standpoint, it won’t make any difference whether it’s Biden or Trump who wins the presidency.” (06/27/24)
