    McConnell Urges Trump to Condemn
    By David Sherfinski - The Washington Times - Friday, March 18, 2016

    Former Texas Rep. Ron Paul said Friday he couldn’t support GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump if Mr. Trump wins the party’s nomination, saying Mr. Trump’s views on the scope of executive authority could surpass those of President Obama.


    “No, I couldn’t do that,” Mr. Paul said on Fox Business Network when asked if he would support Mr. Trump, should the billionaire businessman win the GOP nomination. “He’s [the] opposite of a libertarian.”


    Mr. Paul, a three-time presidential candidate, said on foreign policy, Mr. Trump probably wouldn’t be that much different than former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, the Democratic front-runner.

    “I think the die-hard neoconservatives would not be that extremely unhappy with Hillary,” Mr. Paul said.

    Trump is going to be the most efficient [at] using the executive orders,” he said. “He’ll say this is the way it is, you know. Obama was pretty arrogant. If you don’t do it, [the] Congress, I’ll write an order. Well, I think Trump [will] be 10 times worse on writing orders because he’s used to doing this, and he brags about it.”

    “He wants to be the boss. I’m not looking for a boss. We want somebody that will allow us to be our own boss, is what I think we should be looking for,” Mr. Paul said.

    Well, you know, poor Ron Paul is one of those free trade and open borders guys, because protected trade and secure borders always interfered with his libertarian lifestyle beliefs. Regulating our trade to protect our jobs, Ron Paul wanted none of that, securing our borders and deporting illegal aliens to protect Americans, Ron Paul wanted none of that. Such things interfered with his concept of liberty. So here we are heading towards $21 trillion in debt, 94 million adult age Americans unemployed, 30 million illegals in the country with 87% of them sucking on welfare, Nashville, TN has 87 languages spoken in his public school system, and we're losing more industry, investment, jobs and money supply every month due to bad trade deals than we count and keep up with.

    It will be hard for Ron Paul when he sees a Trump Presidency solve these immigration, trade and fiscal issues and realize that a philosophy he devoted his life to and drained our country with was just part of the stupidity and incompetence that drove Donald Trump to run for President in the first place.

    Who cares about these has beens anyway, they had their chance and did nothing. They never listened to us citizens so..why would we care what they have to say or who they support now. They all have been there to long and we need new representation one by one.

    That is so wonderful that some Libertarians are backing Trump even though they disagree with his protected trade and secure borders positions. They like other things like his non-interventionism with regards to war and some other issues.
