“From a libertarian viewpoint, there is absolutely no meaningful difference between Hillary and Trump,” he emphatically remarked. “I mean, they both support [the] military-industrial complex, the federal reserve, deficits, entitlements, invasion of our privacy.”

 (ANTIMEDIA) On Tuesday, Ron Paul agreed with what countless activists and independent journalists have been saying for months: Bernie Sanders is pretty much the same as Donald Trump.

Asked by CNN in aninterview whether he would consider supporting Sanders’ presidential bid, Paul somewhat incredulously replied, “No. No, because he’s an authoritarian … he’s just a variant of Trump. Trump wants to be the boss.

Paul went on, explaining that on issues of foreign policy where he’d collaborated with Sanders, the Vermont senator is “part of the military-industrial complex.”

“He was a big voter for militarism. He’s an authoritarian of a different color; but Trump is a super-authoritarian,” Paul said.

Paul’s criticism of the presidential contenders didn’t stop with Sanders and Trump.

From a libertarian viewpoint, there is absolutely no meaningful difference between Hillary and Trump,” he emphatically remarked. “I mean, they both support [the] military-industrial complex, the federal reserve, deficits, entitlements, invasion of our privacy.”

Indeed, Paul summarized the absurdity of the 2016 election platforms, saying, “It’s super-nationalistic populism versus socialism. That is so remote from what we need to be doing — we need to be moving ourselves away from tyranny toward liberty.”

Asked if he would be endorsing any candidates, Paul explained there isn’t a single person left in the race who fits libertarian ideals of limiting government and protecting individual liberties.

Some of the top candidates want to carpet bomb the world,” he said, shaking his head in disbelief. “No, a libertarian can’t endorse this authoritarian approach.”

  • Awww Ron is all butthurt over Rand’s failed Presidential run, Just like Daddy.
    The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree now does it?

  • While I agree with his view point about moving towards peace and less government/military, etc, this is not the Presidency or that. He is totally correct in what we should be moving towards, but he is a weak person who could not make decisions that will let America survive. Capitalism can work under a fair monetary system, but it’s easily corruptible. That said if Trump is legitimate, and actually plans to fix the system in our country then it’s fine for now, we need that. Maybe actually put Ron Paul as VP, so there’s a balance of thoughts towards peace, and thoughts towards bringing our country back from the depths by whatever means possible.

    Seems crazy yeah, but we need Trumps deals, but we also need the ideal world view being part of our forefront, so we don’t continue to go of the tracks we are meant to follow. Peace is the only answer, in fact, no businesses, and everyone being self sufficient without a country in mind is ideal. None of this nationalistic point of view is needed in a peaceful world, as long as the world itself is capable of stopping any threat that the rest of mankind is capable of making. Meaning counter terrorism if the need arises.

    TLDR; Ron Paul is correct, absolutely, but he is too weak to pull it off. Trump is what we need in this situation as a strong leader, but only if he is legitimate. Put them together and we may actually move forward in the world.

  • If you want to enter the White House you have to fight for it. Ron Paul
    never got even close in joining the real battle. Now Trump basicly gets
    the same treatment as Ron Paul in 2008. Trump is a fighter and suddenly
    there’s now a plot unfolding for a contested convention :

    Seeing Trump as vulnerable, GOP elites now eye a contested convention

    The original title started with ” Elite donors meet to plot steal: GOP
    elites now eye a contested convention”. That same plot turns out to
    have become a global plot involving the EU, the German Vice Chancelor ,
    the Goldman Sachs couple Ted Cruz and Heidi Nelson and the eyed upon
    prey Deutsche Bank. http://theinfounderground.com/smf/index.php?topic=20982.0

    In short Goldman Sachs wants to takedown Deutsche Bank from the White House.

  • I was a Ron Paul supporter for 20 years until the last two elections gave the charade away. His idiot son was the clincher. The controlled opposition just became painfully obvious.

  • However, Hillary is CRAZY! You forgot to mention that! Yeah, just check her eyes out. Wild eyed all the time. Like she can’t believe she will be allowed to SCREW this country.
