John Stossel Runs Down Both Clinton and Trump

In true libertarian style, John Stossel rips both main contenders for the presidency cutting through the usual complaints. Along the lines of Charley Reese he writes:

 As the old joke goes, it's not the corruption that matters. "The real crime is what's legal." How do we improve a system like that?
Here's one solution: Shrink government—limit its power. Then there will be less reason for politicians' cronies to bribe them, for politicians to lie about it and for all of us to fear the State.

 The smaller government is, the less we need to fear the bad things it will do.

As the late songwriter and poet U. Utah Philips once said, "Why do we need government laws? Good people don't need them, and bad people don't obey them."

But if we've got them then the good people can use them to keep a lid on the bad people.

The libertarian view, which has to be expressed in terms of "I" rather than "we", is "I want to get rid of all the laws and regulations. Except for the ones that benefit me, personally."

Go Stossell!
Now if only the LP had of nominated libertarians instead of the ...
Did you see the latest? Weld called rifles weapons of mass destruction. Johnson loves the TPP monopoly like Weld does. The government decided to trash all genuine mmj studies that prove benefits, & toss out more of their regulatory studies. This makes Gary happy, he's in to regs, taxes, fines & enforcement.
Those two don't have a clue what liberty is.

I'm so glad someone still employs that guy. He's so whacky.
