I like Trump’s in-your-face rhetoric.
I like that he’s sticking it to the Establishment, even if he did say nice things about CFR president Richard Haass.
I like that he includes the counterfeiter-in-chief Janet Yellen in the Establishment.
I like that he promises to “end government corruption and take the country back from special interests,” even if he stands almost no chance of doing so.
I like his response to Hillary’s charge that he didn’t pay taxes — “That makes me smart.” Actually, I love that response. Can you imagine Jeb Bush, Mitt Romney or any other Establishment candidate having the balls to say that publicly, let alone during a national debate?
I like that he’s not a member, much less a leading member, of a gang such as the Clinton Foundation.
I like that he’s exposed the media as the Establishment lapdog that it is.
I like that he might win even with the media working overtime for his defeat.
I like that he claims the election is rigged in his Establishment opponent’s favor.
I like that the polls show him in a close race with his Establishment opponent.
I like that The Economist, a “respectable” statist organ, said “[Trump] must be stopped.”
I like that “Trump has repeatedly expressed doubt in the science behind climate change.” Perhaps he’s heard of Climategate 2.0.
I like that no one has ever accused Trump of being Politically Correct.
I like that the PC crowd has reacted in horror at Trump’s statements.
I like that Trump has offended leading lights across the entire political spectrum.
I like that Trump said Vladimir Putin has been a better leader than Obama.
I like that Trump said the US can’t afford to be the world’s policeman.
I don’t know Trump personally. Even with Trump’s shortcomings in economic understanding, an Austrian school economist still gives his proposed policies a passing grade. But once elected, then what? He could be disastrous.
Nevertheless, what I’ve just named are things I like about him.
My hope for this election is that it will someday be viewed as a tipping point in the death of government-as-we-know-it.
