Libertarians aren't protectionists. Trump ran on a paleoconservative platform.

He is an ideology

belief over logic.


That is never good.

How is it never good? Belief over logic is responsible for starting nations, great ones at that.

I don't agree with that at all . Bannon is one of the most powerful men in the world and was smart to recognize trump was a winner. Shapiro was a never trump guy who said trump would be " blown out "in the general election

Shapiro supported the Iraq war , has called people like pat Buchanan and ron Paul anti semites, seems obsessed with Israel . Not to mention almost getting beat up by a transsexual on live tv, believes in open borders, he is to much like past conservatives and neo conservatives .

I didn't vote for Trump either. He is too bombastic for me. Shapiro is jewish.

That can be found by chance and Change here lol

Shapiro is good. Especially at getting liberals hot and bothered on social issues.

Shipiro is great on most things. I think he has a good chance of succeeding Trump in 2024.
