Tucker: Leaders show no obligation to American voters


TONIGHT.” HAPPY NEW YEAR, NEWLY ELECTED UTAH SENATOR MITT ROMNEY KICKED OFF 2019 WITH AN OP-ED IN THE “THE WASHINGTON POST” THAT SAVAGED DONALD TRUMP’S CHARACTER AND LEADERSHIP. ROMNEY’S ATTACK AND TRUMP’S RESPONSE THIS MORNING ON TWITTER ARE THE LATEST SALVOS IN THE LONG STANDING PERSONAL FEUD BETWEEN THE TWO MEN. IT’S EVEN POSSIBLE THAT ROMNEY IS PLANNING TO CHALLENGE TRUMP FOR THE REPUBLICAN NOMINATION IN 2020. WE’LL SEE. BUT, FOR NOW, ROMNEY’S PIECE IS FASCINATING ON ITS OWN TERMS. AND WELL-WORTH READING. IT’S A WINDOW HOW THE PEOPLE IN CHARGE IN BOTH PARTIES SEE OUR COUNTRY. ROMNEY’S MAIN COMPLAINT IN THE PIECE IS THAT DONALD TRUMP IS A DIVISIVE LEADER. THAT’S TRUE, OF COURSE. BENEATH THE PERSONAL SLICE ROMNEY HAS A POLICY CRITIQUE OF TRUMP. HE SEEMS GENERALLY ANGRY THAT TRUMP MIGHT PULL TROOPS OUT OF THE SYRIAN CIVIL WAR. ROMNEY DOESN’T EXPLAIN HOW STAYING IN SYRIA WOULD BENEFIT AMERICA. HE DOESN’T CONSIDER THAT A RELEVANT QUESTION. MORE POLICING IN THE MIDDLE EAST IS ALWAYS BETTER. WE KNOW THAT. VIRTUALLY EVERYONE IN WASHINGTON AGREES. CORPORATE TAX CUTS ARE ALSO POPULAR IN WASHINGTON AND ROMNEY IS STRONGLY ON BOARD WITH THOSE, TWO. HIS PIECE THROW AS RARE COMPLIMENT TO TRUMP FOR CUTTING THE CORPORATE RATE A YEAR AGO. THAT’S NOT SURPRISING ROMNEY SPENT THE BULK OF HIS BUSINESS CAREER AT A FIRM CALLED BAIN CAPITOL. IT INVENTED WHAT IS A FAMILIAR BUSINESS STRATEGY TAKING OVER EXISTING COMPANY SHORT PERT PERIOD OF TIME. CUT COSTS BY CUTTING EMPLOYEES, DEBT AND MOVE ON. HE BECAME FANTASTICALLY RICH WHILE DOING. THIS MEANWHILE A REMARKABLE NUMBER OF THE COMPANIES ARE NOW BANKRUPT OR EXTINCT. THIS IS THE PRIVATE HE CAN AT THIS TIME MODEL A RULING CLASS SEES NOTHING WRONG WITH IT THAT’S HOW THEY RULE THE COUNTRY. MITT ROMNEY REFERS TO UNWAVERING SUPPORT FOR A FINANCED BASED ECONOMY AND INTERNATIONAL FOREIGNIST POLICY AS THE MAINSTREAM REPUBLICAN VIEW. IS HE RIGHT ABOUT THAT. FOR GENERATIONS REPUBLICANS HAVE CONSIDERED IT THEIR DUTY TO MAKE THE WORLD SAFE FOR BANKING WHILE SIMULTANEOUSLY PROSECUTING EVER MORE FOREIGN WARS. MODERN DEMOCRATS GENERALLY SUPPORT THOSE GOALS ENTHUSIASTICALLY. THERE ARE SIGNS, HOWEVER THAT MOST PEOPLE DO NOT SUPPORT THIS AGENDA AND NOT JUST HERE IN AMERICA. IN COUNTRIES AROUND THE WORLD, FRANCE, BRAZIL, SWEDEN, THE PHILIPPINES, GERMANY, MANY OTHERS, VOTERS SUDDENLY ARE BACKING CANDIDATES AND IDEAS THAT WOULD HAVE BEEN UNIMAGINABLE JUST A DECADE AGO. THESE ARE NOT ISOLATED EVENTS. WHAT YOU ARE WATCHING ARE ENTIRE POPULATIONS REVOLTING AGAINST LEADERS WHO REFUSE TO IMPROVE THEIR LIVES. SOMETHING LIKE THIS HAS BEEN HAPPENING IN OUR COUNTRY FOR THE PAST THREE YEARS. DONALD TRUMP RODE A SURGE OF POPULAR DISCONTENT ALL THE WAY TO THE WHITE HOUSE. DOES HE UNDERSTAND THE POLITICAL REVOLUTION THAT HE HARNESSED? CAN HE REVERSE THE ECONOMIC AND CULTURAL TRENDS THAT ARE DESTROYING AMERICA? THOSE ARE OPEN QUESTIONS. THEY ARE LESS RELEVANT THAN WE THINK. AT SOME POINT DONALD TRUMP WILL BE GONE. THE REST OF US WILL BE GONE, TOO. THE COUNTRY WILL REMAIN. WHAT KIND OF COUNTRY WILL IT BE THEN? HOW DO WE WANT OUR GRANDCHILDREN TO LIVE? THOSE ARE THE ONLY QUESTIONS THAT MATTER. THE ANSWER TO THEM USED TO BE OBVIOUS. THE OVERRIDING FOR AMERICA IS PROSPERITY. MEANING CHEAPER CONSUMER GOODS. IS THAT STILL TRUE? DOES ANYONE STILL BELIEVE THAT CHEAPER iPHONES OR MORE AMAZON DELIVERIES ARE OF PLASTIC GARBAGE FROM CHINA ARE GOING TO MAKE US HAPPY? THEY HAVEN’T SO FAR. A LOT OF AMERICANS ARE DROWNING IN STUFF. YET DRUG ADDICTION AND SUICIDE ARE DEPOPULATING LARGE PARTS OF THE COUNTRY. ANYONE WHO THINKS THE HEALTH OF A NATION CAN BE SUMMED UP IN G.D.P. IS AN IDIOT. THE GOAL FOR AMERICA IS BOTH SIMPLER AND MORE ALLUSIVE THAN MERE PROSPERITY. IT’S HAPPINESS. THERE ARE A LOT OF INGREDIENTS IN BEING HAPPY. DIGNITY, PURPOSE, SELF-CONTROL, INDEPENDENCE, ABOVE ALL DEEP RELATIONSHIPS WITH OTHER PEOPLE. THOSE ARE THE THINGS THAT YOU WANT FOR YOUR CHILDREN. THEY ARE WHAT OUR LEADERS SHOULD WANT FOR US AND WOULD WANT IF THEY CARED. BUT OUR LEADERS DON’T CARE. WE HAVE RULED BY MERCENARIES WHO FEEL NO LONG-TERM OBLIGATION TO THE PEOPLE THEY RULE. THEY ARE DAY TRADERS. SUBSTITUTE TEACHERS. THEY ARE JUST PASSING THROUGH. THEY HAVE NO SKIN IN THIS GAME AND IT SHOWS. THEY CAN’T SOLVE OUR PROBLEMS. THEY DON’T EVEN BOTHER TO UNDERSTAND OUR PROBLEMS. ONE THE BIGGEST LIES OUR LEADERS TELL US IS THAT YOU CAN SEPARATE ECONOMICS FROM EVERYTHING ELSE THAT MATTERS. ECONOMICS IS A TOPIC FOR PUBLIC DEBATE. FAMILY, PERSONAL MATTERS. BOTH PARTIES BELIEVE THIS. MEMBERS OF OUR EDUCATED YOU WERE UPRE UPPER MIDDLE CLASS USUALLY SUBSCRIBE THEM AS AS FISCALLY RESPONSIBLE AND SOCIALLY MODERATE. FUNCTIONALLY LIBERTARIAN. THEY DON’T CARE HOW YOU LIVE AS LONG AS THE BILLS ARE PAID AND THE MARKETS FUNCTION. SOMEHOW THEY DON’T SEE A CONNECTION BETWEEN PEOPLE’S PERSONAL LIVES AND THE HEALTH OF OUR ECONOMY OR FOR THAT MATTER THE COUNTRY’S ABILITY TO PAY ITS BILLS. AS FAR AS THEY ARE CONCERNED, THESE ARE TWO TOTALLY SEPARATE CATEGORIES. SOCIAL CONSERVATIVES, MEANWHILE, COME TO THE DEBATE FROM THE OPPOSITE PERSPECTIVE. AND, YET REACH A STRIKINGLY SIMILAR CONCLUSION. THE REAL PROBABLE YOU WILL HEAR THEM SAY IS THAT THE AMERICAN FAMILY IS COLLAPSING. NOTHING CAN BE FIXED BEFORE WE FIX THAT. LIKE THE LIBERTARIANS THEY CLAIM TO OPPOSE, MANY SOCIAL CONSERVATIVES ALSO CONSIDER MARKETS SACROSANCT. THE IDEA THAT FAMILIES ARE BEING CRUSHED BY MARKET FORCES NEVER SEEMS TO OCCUR TO THEM. THEY REFUSE TO CONSIDER IT CONSIDERING MARKETS SEEMS LIKE HYPOCRISY. BOTH SIDES OF THIS MISS THE OBVIOUS POINTS. CULTURE AND ECONOMICS ARE INSEPARATABLY INTERTWINED CERTAIN ECONOMIC SYSTEMS ALLOW FAMILIES TO THRIVE. THRIVING FAMILIES MAKE ECONOMIES POSSIBLE. YOU CAN’T SEPARATE THE TWO. IT USED TO BE POSSIBLE TO DENY THIS BUT IT’S NOT ANYMORE. THE SECRETARY OF DEFENSE NOW OVERWHELMING. HOW DO WE KNOW? CONSIDER THE INNER CITIES, 30 YEARS AGO CONSERVATIVES LOOKED AT DETROIT AND NEW YORK AND MANY OTHER PLACES AND HORRIFIED BY WHAT THEY SAW CONVENTIONAL FAMILIES HAD ALL ABOUT DISAPPEARED IN POOR NEIGHBORHOODS. MAJORITY OF CHILDREN BORN OUT OF WEDLOCK. SINGLE MOTHERS WERE THE RULE. CRIME AND DRUGS AND DISORDER BECAME UNIVERSAL. WHAT CAUSED THIS NIGHTMARE? LIBERALS DIDN’T EVEN WANT TO ACKNOWLEDGE THE QUESTION. THEY WERE BENEFITING FROM THE DISASTER IN THE FORM OF RELIABLE VOTES CONSERVATIVES THOUGH HAD AN EXPLANATION FOR INNER CITY DYSFUNCTION AND IT MADE SENSE. BIG GOVERNMENT. DECADES OF BADLY DESIGNED SOCIAL PROGRAMS HAD DRIVEN FATHERS FROM THE HOME AND CREATED WHAT CONSERVATIVES CALLED A CULTURE OF POVERTY TO TRAP PEOPLE IN GENERATIONAL DECLINE. WELL, THERE WAS TRUTH IN THIS. BUT IT WASN’T THE WHOLE STORY. HOW DO WE KNOW? WELL, BECAUSE VIRTUALLY THE SAME THING HAS HAPPENED DECADES LATER TO ANNUAL ENTIRELY DIFFERENT POPULATION. IN MANY WAYS RURAL AMERICA NOW LOOKS LIKE DETROIT. THIS IS STRIKING BECAUSE RURAL AMERICANS WOULDN’T SEEM TO HAVE VERY MUCH IN COMMON WITH ANYONE FROM THE INNER CITY. THE GROUPS HAVE DIFFERENT CULTURES, DIFFERENT THAT DILINGSES, DIFFERENT POLITICAL BELIEFS. USUALLY THEY HAVE DIFFERENT SKIN COLORS. RURAL PEOPLE ARE WHITE CONSERVATIVES, MOSTLY. YET THE PATHOLOGIES OF MODERN RURAL AMERICA ARE FAMILIAR TO ANYONE WHO VISITED DOWNTOWN BALTIMORE IN THE 180S, STUNNING OUT-OF-WEDLOCK BIRTH RATES, HIGH MALE UNEMPLOYMENT. A TERRIFYING DRUG EPIDEMIC. TWO DIFFERENT WORLDS, SIMILAR OUTCOMES. HOW DID THIS HAPPEN? YOU THINK OUR RULING CLASS WOULD BE DEEPLY INTERESTED IN KNOWING THE ANSWER, BUT MOSTLY THEY ARE NOT. THEY DON’T HAVE TO BE INTERESTED. IT’S EASIER TO IMPORT FOREIGN LABOR TO TAKE THE PLACE OF NATIVE BORN AMERICANS WHO ARE SLIPPING BEHIND. NOW REPUBLICANS NOW REPRESENT RURAL VOTERS. THEY OUGHT TO BE INTERESTED. HERE’S A BIG PART OF THE ANSWER. MALE WAGES DECLINE. MANUFACTURING AND MALE DOMINATED INDUSTRY ALL BUT DISAPPEARED OVER THE COURSE OF A GENERATION. ALL THAT REMAINED IN MANY PLACES WERE THE SCHOOLS AND THE HOSPITALS AND BOTH OF THEM ARE TRADITIONAL EMPLOYERS OF WOMEN IN MANY AREAS WOMEN SUDDENLINELY MADE MORE THAN MEN. BEFORE YOU APPLAUD THAT AS A VICTORY FOR FEMINISM CONSIDER THE EFFECTS. STUDY AFTER STUDY SHOW WHEN MEN MAKE LESS THAN WOMEN THEY DON’T WANT TO MARRY THEM. MAYBE THEY SHOULD BUT THEY DON’T. OVER BIG POPULATIONS THIS CAUSES A BIG DROP IN MARRIAGE. SPIKE IN OUT-OF-WEDLOCK BIRTHS AND ALL THE DISASTERS THAT INEVITABLY FOLLOW. MORE ALCOHOL AND DRUG ABUSE. FEWER FAMILIES FORMED IN THE NEXT GENERATION. THIS IS NOT SPECULATION OR PROPAGANDA FROM EVANGELICALS. IT’S SOCIAL SCIENCE. WE KNOW IT’S TRUE. RICH PEOPLE KNOW IT BEST OF ALL. THAT’S WHY THEY GET MARRIED BEFORE THEY HAVE KIDS. THAT MODEL WORKS. INCREASINGLY MARRIAGE IS A LUXURY ONLY THE AFFLUENT IN AMERICA CAN AFFORD. AND, YET, AND HERE IS THE BEWILDERING AND INFURIATING PART. THOSE VERY SAME AFFLUENT MARRIED PEOPLE THE ONES WHO MAKE VIRTUALLY ALL THE DECISIONS IN OUR SOCIETY ARE DOING PRETTY MUCH NOTHING TO HELP THE PEOPLE BELOW THEM TO HELP AND STAY MARRIED. RICH PEOPLE ARE HAPPY TO FIGHT MALARIA IN CONGO BUT WORKING TO RAISE MEN’S WAGES IN DAYTON OR DETROIT THAT’S CRAZY. THIS IS NEGLIGENCE ON A MASSIVE SCALE. BOTH PARTIES IGNORE THE CRISIS IN MARRIAGE. OUR MINDLESS CULTURAL LEADERS ACT LIKE IT’S STILL 1961 AND THE BIGGEST PROBLEM AMERICAN FAMILIES FACE IS THAT SEXISM IS PREVENTING MILLIONS OF HOUSEWIVES FROM BECOMING INVESTMENT BANKERS OR FACEBOOK EXECUTIVES. FOR OUR RULING CLASS, MORE INVESTMENT BANKING IS ALMOST ALWAYS THE ANSWER. THEY TEACH US IT’S MORE VIRTUOUS TO DEVOTE YOUR LIFE TO SOME SOULLESS CORPORATION THAN IT IS TO RAISE YOUR OWN KIDS. SHERYL SANDBERG OF FACEBOOK WROTE AN ENTIRE BOOK ABOUT THIS. SANDBERG EXPLAINED OUR FIRST DUTY IS TO SHAREHOLDERS ABOVE OUR OWN CHILDREN. NO SURPRISE THERE. SANDBERG HERSELF IS ONE OF AMERICA’S BIGGEST SHAREHOLDERS.>>PROPAGANDA LIKE THIS HAS MADE HER RICH. WHAT’S REMARKABLE IS HOW THE REST OF US RESPONDED TO IT. WE DIDN’T QUESTION WHY SANDBERG WAS SAYING. THIS WE DIDN’T LAUGH IN HER FACE AT THE PURE ABSURDITY OF IT OUR CORPORATE MEDIA CELEBRATED SANDBERG AS THE LEADER OF A LIBERATION MOVEMENT. BOOK BECAME A BEST SELLER “LEAN IN” AS IF PUTTING A CORPORATION FIRST IS EMPOWERMENT IT IS NOT IT IS BONDAGE. REPUBLICANS SHOULD SAY SO. THEY ALSO SHOULD SPEAK OUT AGAINST OUR FINANCIAL SYSTEM NOT ALL COMMERCE IS GOOD. WHY IS IT DEFENSIBLE TO LOAN PEOPLE MONEY THEY CAN’T POSSIBLY REPAY? OR CHARGE THEM INTEREST THAT IMPOVERISHES THEM. PAYDAY LOAN OUTLETS IN POOR NEIGHBORHOODS COLLECT 400 PERCENT ANNUAL INTEREST. ARE WE OKAY WITH THAT? WE SHOULD NOT BE. LIBERTARIANS TELL US THAT’S HOW MARKETS WORK CONSENTING ADULTS MAKING VOLUNTARY DECISIONS HOW TO LIVE THEIR LIVES. OKAY, BUT IT’S ALSO DISGUSTING. IF YOU CARE ABOUT AMERICA YOU OUGHT TO OWE POISE THE EXPLOITATION OF AMERICANS WHETHER IT’S HAPPENING IN THE INNER CITY OR WALL STREET. BY THE WAY IF YOU REALLY LOVED YOUR FELLOW AMERICANS AS OUR LEADERS SHOULD, IT WOULD BREAK YOUR HEART TO SEE THEM HIGH ALL THE TIME, WHICH THEY ARE. A HUGE NUMBER OF OUR KIDS, ESPECIALLY OUR BOYS ARE SMOKING WEED CONSTANTLY. YOU MAY NOT REALIZE THAT BECAUSE NEW TECHNOLOGY HAS MADE IT ALL BUT ODORLESS, BUT IT’S EVERYWHERE. THAT’S NOT AN ACCIDENT. ONCE OUR LEADERS UNDERSTOOD THEY COULD GET RICH FROM MAIN, MAIN MARI, MAIN MARIJUMAIN MARIJUANIN MARIJUANAN MARIJUANA BECAME UBIQUITOUS. MANY PLACES LEGALIZED OR DECRIMINALIZED IT SPEAKER OF THE HOUSE JOHN BOEHNER NOW LOBBIES FOR THE MARIJUANA INDUSTRY. FELLOW REPUBLICANS. BETTER THAN ALCOHOL, THEY TELL US. MAYBE, WHO CARES? TALK ABOUT MISSING THE POINT. TRY HAVING DINNER WITH A 19-YEAR-OLD WHO HAS BEEN SMOKING WEED IN THE LIFE IS GONE. PASSIVE, FLAT, TRAPPED IN THEIR OWN HEADS. DO YOU WANT THAT FOR YOUR KIDS. OF COURSE NOT. THEN WHY ARE OUR LEADERS PUSHING IT ON US? YOU KNOW THE REASON. BECAUSE THEY DON’T CARE ABOUT US. WHEN YOU CARE ABOUT PEOPLE, YOU DO YOUR BEST TO TREAT THEM FAIRLY. OUR LEADERS DON’T EVEN TRY. THEY HAND OUT JOBS AND CONTRACTS AND SCHOLARSHIPS AND SLOTS TO PRESTIGIOUS UNIVERSITIES BASED PURELY ON HOW WE LOOK. THERE IS NOTHING LESS FAIR THAN THAT THOUGH OUR TAX CODE DOES COME CLOSE. UNDER OUR CURRENT SYSTEM AN AMERICAN WORKS HO WORKS FOR SALARY PAYS TWICE THE TAX RATE AS SOMEBODY LIVING OFF INHERITED. HALF THE RATE WE TAX LABOR. SWEET DEAL IF YOU WORK IN FINANCE AS MANY OF OUR RICHEST PEOPLE DO. IN 2010, FOR EXAMPLE, MITT ROMNEY MADE ABOUT $22 MILLION IN INVESTMENT INCOME. HE PAID AN EFFECTIVE FEDERAL TAX RATE OF 14%. FOR NORMAL UPPER MIDDLE CLASS WAGE OWNERRERS THE TAX RATE IS NEARLY 40%. NO WONDER MITT ROMNEY SUPPORTS THE STATUS QUO. BUT, FOR EVERYONE ELSE, IT’S INFURIATING. OUR LEADERS RARELY MENTION ANY OF THIS. OUR MULTITIERED TAX CODE IS BASED ON FREE MARKET. PLEASE, IT’S BASED ON LAWS THAT THE CONGRESS PASSED. LAWS THAT COMPANIES LOBBIED FOR IN ORDER TO INCREASE THEIR ECONOMIC ADVANTAGE. IT WORKED WELL FOR THOSE PEOPLE, THEY DID INCREASE THEIR ECONOMIC ADVANTAGE. FOR EVERYONE ELSE THERE WAS A BIG COST. UNFAIRNESS IS PROFOUNDLY DECISIVE. WHEN YOU FAVOR ONE CHILD OVER ANOTHER, YOUR KIDS DON’T HATE YOU, THEY HATE EACH OTHER. THAT HAPPENS IN COUNTRIES, TOO. IT’S HAPPENING IN OUR COUNTRY. PROBABLY BY DESIGN. DIVIDED COUNTRIES ARE EASIER TO RULE. NOTHING DIVIDES US THAN THE PERCEPTION SOME PEOPLE ARE GETTING SPECIAL TREATMENT. IN OUR COUNTRY SOME PEOPLE DEFINITELY ARE GETTING SPECIAL TREATMENT. REPUBLICANS SHOULD OPPOSE THAT WITH EVERYTHING THAT THEY HAVE. SO THE QUESTION IS WHAT KIND OF COUNTRY DO YOU WANT TO LIVE IN? WELL, A FAIR COUNTRY, A DECENT COUNTRY. A COHESIVE COUNTRY. A COUNTRY WHOSE LEADERS DON’T ACCELERATE THE FORCES OF CHANGE PURELY FOR THEIR OWN PROFIT AND AMUSEMENT. A COUNTRY YOU MIGHT RECOGNIZE WHEN YOU’RE OLD. A COUNTRY THAT LISTENS TO YOUNG PEOPLE WHO DON’T LIVE IN BROOKLYN. A COUNTRY WHERE YOU CAN MAKE A SOLID LIVING OUTSIDE OF THE BIG CITIES A COUNTRY WHERE LEWISTON, MAINE, SEEMS ALMOST AS IMPORTANT AS THE WEST SIDE OF LOS ANGELES. A COUNTRY WHERE ENVIRONMENTALISM MEANS GETTING OUTSIDE AND PICKING UP THE TRASH. A CLEAN, ORDERLY STABLE COUNTRY THAT RESPECTS ITSELF AND ABOVE ALL A COUNTRY WHERE NORMAL PEOPLE WHO GREW UP NO PLACE SPECIAL CAN GET MARRIED AND HAVE HEACH KIDS AND REPEAT UNTO THE GENERATIONS. A COUNTRY THAT ACTUALLY CARES ABOUT FAMILIES, BUILDING BLOCK OF EVERYTHING. WHAT WOULD IT TAKE TO GET A COUNTRY LIKE THAT? LEADERS WHO WANT IT. FOR NOW THOSE LEADERS WILL HAVE TO BE REPUBLICANS, THERE’S NO OPTION AT THIS POINT. BUT, FIRST, REPUBLICAN LEADERS WILL HAVE TO ACKNOWLEDGE THAT MARKET CAPITALISM IS NOT A RELIGION. MARKET CAPITALISM IS A TOOL, LIKE A STAPLE GUN OR A TOASTER. YOU WOULD HAVE TO BE A FOOL TO WORSHIP IT OUR SYSTEM WAS CREATED BY HUMAN BEINGS FOR THE BENEFIT OF HUMAN BEINGS. WE DO NOT EXIST TO SERVE MARKETS. JUST THE OPPOSITE. ANY ECONOMIC SYSTEM THAT WEAKENS AND DESTROYS FAMILIES IS NOT WORTH HAVING. A SYSTEM LIKE THAT IS THE ENEMY OF A HEALTHY SOCIETY. INTERNALIZING ALL OF THIS WILL NOT BE EASY FOR REPUBLICAN LEADERS. THEY HAVE TOWN LEARN DECADES OF BUMPER STICKER TALKING POINTS AND CORPORATE PROPAGANDA: THEY WILL LIKELY LOSE DONORS IN THE PROCESS. THEY WILL BE CRITICIZED. LIBERTARIANS ARE CERTAINLY TO CALL ANY DEVIATION FROM MARKET A FORM OF SOCIALISM. THAT’S A LIFETIME ACHIEVEMENT SOCIALISM IS A DISASTER. IT DOES NOT WORK. IN FACT, IT’S WHAT WE SHOULD BE WORKING DESPROFITLY TO AVOID. BUT SOCIALISM IS EXACTLY WHAT WE ARE GOING TO GET AND VERY SOON UNLESS A GROUP OF RESPONSIBLE PEOPLE IN OUR POLITICAL SYSTEM REFORMS THE AMERICAN ECONOMY IN A WAY THAT PROTECTS NORMAL PEOPLE.

    I’d be happy with a Tucker Carlson dictatorship. He’s a serious third positionalist, this type of politic is DYING to flourish once again, call it “fascism”, natsoc whatever, these ideas are peak human ideals to pursue for they would create a healthy society, a society that is focused on tradition, the family unit, against corporate tyranny, a state that is absolute and for the people.

  18. Deanna Z says:

    Romney is & always has been one of the biggest RINOs in the party & he only runs as a Republican because he couldn't get elected as a demorat! He ran for office this last time because he's a sore loser & wanted to be able to go after the president in a more public way! He's will always be a loser!

  19. Galatea says:

    A millionaire hack who takes advantage of the common man by pretending to be on their side with fake populism while also making sure to follow the orders of his billionaire masters. Oh and he's a racist.

  20. Michael Jones says:

    Romney go home!

  22. J JACKS says:

    🤣🤣🤣🤣👎

  23. Dave Underwood says:

    This is mostly caused by giving women an incentive to detonate the family unit.  The elites made these laws to take the country apart. And idiots think it's the Russians doing it. Lol. They're just using feminism. Bravo ladies.

  24. IZ Ewert says:

    I am waiting for new Independent Tucker Carlson channel. This is most truthful and inspiring opinion ever. Brilliant mind, good heart, rare to find.

  26. James Pappas says:

    I don't want the government to improve my life, I want them to get out of my life. They should be for self-defense, protect liberties, and control monetary policy, that's it.
