Ron Paul: “Absolutely No Meaningful Difference Between Hillary and Trump”

(ANTIMEDIA) On Tuesday, Ron Paul agreed with what countless activists and independent journalists have been saying for months: Bernie Sanders is pretty much the same as Donald Trump.

Asked by CNN in an interview whether he would consider supporting Sanders’ presidential bid, Paul somewhat incredulously replied, “No. No, because he’s an authoritarian … he’s just a variant of Trump. Trump wants to be the boss.

Paul went on, explaining that on issues of foreign policy where he’d collaborated with Sanders, the Vermont senator is “part of the military-industrial complex.”

“He was a big voter for militarism. He’s an authoritarian of a different color; but Trump is a super-authoritarian,” Paul said.

Paul’s criticism of the presidential contenders didn’t stop with Sanders and Trump.

From a libertarian viewpoint, there is absolutely no meaningful difference between Hillary and Trump,” he emphatically remarked. “I mean, they both support [the] military-industrial complex, the federal reserve, deficits, entitlements, invasion of our privacy.”

Indeed, Paul summarized the absurdity of the 2016 election platforms, saying, “It’s super-nationalistic populism versus socialism. That is so remote from what we need to be doing — we need to be moving ourselves away from tyranny toward liberty.”

Asked if he would be endorsing any candidates, Paul explained there isn’t a single person left in the race who fits libertarian ideals of limiting government and protecting individual liberties.

Some of the top candidates want to carpet bomb the world,” he said, shaking his head in disbelief. “No, a libertarian can’t endorse this authoritarian approach.”

  1. Ron Paul is a waste of the American peoples time. There is a massive difference between Trump & Hillary.
    Trump has a Heart & Conscience, Hillary has neither. Those 2 qualities make a crucial difference to any response a person makes to any problem!
    Hillary is ALL Lies & will continue to Lie until the end of her life. Trump tells it as it is.

  6. Yeah, I can see how a blatant bigot who openly advocates violence would have "a Heart & Conscience." Makes perfect sense. Trump is a demagogue preying on people's fear and ignorance, while Hillary is a hawk, a Wall Street puppet, a liar, and a criminal. Ron is right that when it comes to viewing things from a libertarian perspective, there's no functional difference between them. They both want to use the crushing power of government, just for different ends.

  7. The more I hear from Ron Paul, the more I believe he is controlled opposition. Yes, America doesn't have much choice, but given the choice presented, I'll take a loudmouth businessman who could care less about PC and tells the truth over a traitor selling our national security secrets to the highest bidder any day. RP abandoned his last bid for president to make a backroom deal for his son, Rand. He sold out the American people for political power for his son and ignored Romney's theft of his delegates. That alone makes it impossible to trust Ron Paul.

  8. If you think he is controlled opposition, then that makes you an idiot. Do some research on Ron. He doesnt support authoritarians
