Liberty is not binary, it operates on a continuum.
I would bet that liberty, on the whole, will grow during a Trump admin. I have my issues with Trump and he is far from perfect, Rand or Ron of course would be much better in regards to fighting consistently for liberty. But liberty will most certainly be at much more sustainable levels than we would have seen from a Hillary admin. And the economy will end up being a lot better off as well. We may have a crash, we may see bad times, but that is because of what has happened previously and we will all be much better off on the whole with a Trump admin.
I actually was very hesitant about even wanting to see a Romney administration, but I knew Obama would carry us much further in the opposite direction as well. I didn't see the liberty continuum as improving or being much better either way we went. This Trump phenomenon has nothing to do with two establishment puppets dueling it out, Trump may not be totally anti-establishment but on the whole he is anti-establishment and he has shown it through his cabinet picks. I expect some establishment people will be in his cabinet for strategic purposes, and I will very likely be unhappy with some of his picks.. like if he picks that Munchkin dude, which he hasn't yet, but so far, so good.
