I really don't get Trump supporters. To be "liberty-minded" is a packaged deal, encompassing many related and consistent positions on public policy towards the goal of less government intervention and more private entrepreneurship and charity. It's not just saying the right thing on one issue.
Every time Trump says one thing that is even remotely close to a conservative or libertarian position, Trump supporters here rage on like, "Look! Trump is going to lead us towards liberty! Woooooooo!" forgetting the tens of other positions that Trump holds when it comes to things like eminent domain, stealing oil from other nations, using executive orders for his own means, and a slew of other non-liberty views.
Forget Trump's rhetoric; look at his history of what he's stood for, used the government to do on his behalf, and how many times he's flip-flopped on issues. That's what counts.
