A pair of Libertarian ideologues have established an organization attempting to rally support behind Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump.
The “Libertarians for Trump” group, created earlier this week by LewRockwell.com editors Dr. Donald Miller and economics professor Walter E. Block, admits “it has its work cut out for it in mobilizing massive support for Donald Trump within the libertarian community.”
This is because, Block writes, “there are some libertarians who oppose supporting any politician for political office, even a 99% pure one such as Dr. Ron Paul.”
“There are several issues upon which libertarians do not and cannot support Donald Trump. For example, protectionism,” writes Block. “But, typically, regarding the issues where Mr. Trump deviates from libertarianism, so do the other candidates.”
While a true Libertarian candidate would more closely embody the party’s goals than Trump, Block says the group’s ultimate goal is not to seek a “perfect” candidate, but “to throw our weight behind the candidate who has a reasonable chance of actually becoming President of the United States whose views are CLOSEST to libertarianism.” [emphasis theirs]
And where Trump really stands out, Block says, is his foreign policy.
“As Murray Rothbard and Bob Higgs have demonstrated over and over again, US foreign policy determines what occurs in economics and in the field of personal liberties,” writes the senior fellow of the Ludwig von Mises Institute. “Foreign policy is the dog that wags the other two tails.”
