  • Will Americans Continue to Let Libertarianism Destroy our Country and Kill Us?

    Thom plus logo We have now reached peak Libertarianism, and this bizarre experiment that has been promoted by the billionaire class for over 40 years is literally killing us.

    Back in the years before Reagan, a real estate lobbying group came up with the idea of creating a political party to justify deregulating the real estate and finance industries so they could make more money. The party would give them ideological and political cover, and they developed an elaborate theology around it.

    Thom plus logo With one simple understanding, everything about Trump's life and presidency comes into focus.

    Why would it be that Trump refuses to do his job, including reading intelligence reports? Why would Trump revel in lies and outrageous statements?

Why is Trump, every day, waking up and asking how he can capture the news cycle regardless of its impact on public health or democracy?
