Techno, you are obviously a fascist for even considering the possibility that Trump is not the reincarnation of Adolf Hitler. Haha, just kidding.

I did some head scratching about some of the recent remembrances about past Trump discussions. I don't remember them the way that some people do. I guess it's true what they say about eye-witness accounts varying. Anywho, my political philosophy is very simple: I support smaller government over bigger government, and I don't really care what anybody posts on Twitter including our dear bombastic president, nor do I care about hyperbolic private conversations he may have had in the past about female proclivities to put up with caddish behavior by a well-endowed male.

So you too are a fascist on that same basis! >:D

As for smaller government, Trump isn't a libertarian, nor does he claim to be one.

But he is the least non-libertarian President of my lifetime, which goes back to the Truman administration.

I had to think about "least non-libertarian."
I take it you couldn't bring yourself to say "most libertarian." :)

I consider “libertarian” to be an absolute. If you abide by the NAP then you are one; otherwise not. But there are degrees of violation and he is the least bad President in my lifetime.

How far back in the past do you go to correct previous failures to abide by NAP?

Sorry, I can't parse that meaningfully. Could you clarify?

That's not hard to do in this case, since I assume everyone here knows I'm a programmer.
