Such a fine line between “libertarian” and authoritarian


Clint Eastwood describes his politics:

Mr. Eastwood describes himself as a libertarian “somebody who has respect for other people’s ideas and is willing to learn constantly.”

Clint Eastwood has his candidate for 2020:

As for the domestic political scene, Mr. Eastwood seems disheartened. “The politics has gotten so ornery,” he says, hunching his shoulders in resignation. He approves of “certain things that Trump’s done” but wishes the president would act “in a more genteel way, without tweeting and calling people names. I would personally like for him to not bring himself to that level.” As he drives me back to my hotel, he expresses an affinity for another former mayor: “The best thing we could do is just get Mike Bloomberg in there.”

Ah, yes, nothing says “libertarian” like the “arbitrary illegal mass searches of people of color/Muslim surveillance/soda tax” guy. Showing that as with so many nominal libertarians despite all of his constant learning over the years the only conclusion that ever matters is “tax rates on rich people should be as low as possible.”
