Donald Trump Can Clear the Field   Leave a comment

I will tell you honestly that I am not a Trump supporter, but I have been trying to figure out what others see in him. I have been especially perplexed as to why more libertarian observers seem to be embracing Trump, who loudly and happily embraces tariffs, which are usually kyptonite to free-market libertarians.

I think I’ve figure it out. They don’t expect Trump to be a libertarian. They expect him to dismantle the Washington elite power structure, which would give libertarians a real opportunity to finally be heard in the resulting political vacuum. It’s an interesting strategy that they might end up regretting, but it has merits … especially what Stockman suggests about Ted Cruz. Lela

Toward A Grand New Bargain: How Donald Trump Can Clear The Field And Realign American Politics

It’s actually pretty easy. At an apt moment very soon, Trump should offer Governor Kasich the VP slot and Senator Cruz the vacant Supreme Court seat.

Such a grand bargain would not only clear the primary field and quash any backroom hijacking of the nomination by the Washington GOP establishment; it would also permit each man to play his highest and best role at this great inflection point in the nation’s history.
