“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.”

 (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 aninterview 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. When at a younger age I use to depend on CNN to always give me the latest scoop. and this male announcer I love this guy. I guess you could say we grew up together. But now with the news as it is I’m ashamed he would become involved with such scams. Ron Paul should not be classified to be anything near Trump because4 Ron Paul is a simpleton while Trump thinks ahead with great ideas. As for Hillary , I love Hillary but I am ashamed of her because she is not real. Just like a clone. Those bad things age severely just over night. They lie, Have been guilty of murder, high treason, and almost everything else under the sun. Another thing I don’t know why the reptilians go so far out of their way to deceive the humans because they really are a beautiful people and should be proud of their heritage. Is it that they think so low of themselves
    and there are some that have been deprived of their real worth, and they are all really a beautiful people.
