I know that generalizing is dangerous, so consider the following as painted with a very broad brush.
The president can make a fundamental difference in the way Washington works. Serious engagement in politics is the only effective way to make change. This sums up my view of the fearful libertarians.
Pass the Popcorn
On the national stage, I don’t recall anyone at this level poking so much fun at establishment politicians and the mainstream news media in my lifetime. Whether Trump is sincere or merely an actor for a much larger game, who knows? But his actions can only help serve to de-legitimize politics and politicians. There is everything good about this and nothing bad.
I don’t think the individual who sits in the chair of the president makes that much of a difference. The system will continue to move along until it can’t – and it can’t when the funding available can no longer meet all the promises made.
In the meantime, every action that de-legitimizes the state and politicians is a helpful action.
As to Trump: Where a president can act with little or no congressional approval necessary – foreign policy and wars – Trump at least offers some hope. It is precisely in wars that the most egregious violations of the NAP are to be found.
Where Trump seems to be craziest – building walls and banning Muslims – congress has more control (for whatever that’s worth).
