President Trump has decided to raise tariffs on China from 10% to 25%, effectively declaring a trade war, and took to Twitter to justify his decision.
Libertarian champion Ron Paul made an appearance on RT recently where he gave his thoughts on the 2020 election. When asked about the candidates, Paul showed little interest in most of the twenty plus candidates running for the Democratic primary. However, he was very enthusiastic about Representative from Hawaii Tulsi Gabbard, calling her the “very best” option.
Georgia Governor Brian Kemp (R) plans to sign House Bill 481 into law on Tuesday May 7th. This bill, known as the Heartbeat Bill, would impose very strict regulations on abortion. “I campaigned on signing the toughest abortion bill in the country, and this is the toughest one we’ve got in the Legislature now.” says the conservative Georgia Governor. Kemp also called this the toughest abortion law yet.

Libertarians promote free-market capitalism and little to no government interference in the economy. We oppose government control over the economy. Further, we oppose Marxist ideologies like communism and socialism. One problem with libertarians, however, is their false usage of the term “socialism“. Libertarians label things as “socialist” regardless of whether they are inherently socialist. This characterization hurts the movement.
As of now, there are 18 Democrats running for the primaries in the 2020 election. Furthermore, Bill Weld has announced that he will challenge Trump in 2020. Although it’s early, it appears that the big candidates for the election are Donald Trump for the Republicans and Bernie Sanders for the Democrats. Both Trump and Sanders have been labeled as “radical” and “anti-establishment” by many in the “establishment”. The establishment, which, is dying. The old politics of neoliberalism and neoconservatism are being replaced by a new generation. This generation is embracing a new ideology-populism. This is happening on both the left and right sides of the political spectrum.
