Donald Trump is clearly the dictator we were warned against in Friedrich Hayek’s “The Road to Serfdom”. Hayek’s prophetic 1944 masterpiece described how a population (in that case Hitler’s Germany) happily surrenders itself to a dictator. Hayek was a Nobel prize-winning Economist, renowned for his work on free markets. The descent to serfdom has been ably described in video form. Hayek describes how citizens rely on central planners to control society- made up of “the best” (the elite) . On the road to serfdom the lawmakers give away their legislative power to authoritarian bureaucrats who are made up of the most greedy and least able (“The worse rise to the top”). Ultimately the people keep losing (as we are now with Obama) and then a Strong man is called for “to get the job done”. The strong man becomes a dictator – which clearly is what Trump is becoming.
Donald Trump is the dictator on the Road to Serfdom. He offers phony economic solutions and his loyal followers ignore his hypocrisy, failures, greed and multiple red flags. Trump followers are falling for the same con job of Obama, putting their hopes and dreams on him like a blank canvas. Trumps followers are buying the “hope and change” argument from a guy who routinely proves he will abuse power to destroy his political enemies and never mentions the restraints of the constitution (all identical to the Obama playbook).
Trump is Obama, the Strong man a frustrated and desperate people call on for salvation. Trump is a dictator in waiting.
So the Sunbeam Times is proud to bring you some of the examples of the Trump hypocrisy and show readers how he will “Make Americans Serfs Again” (like with King Geroge) rather than make America “great” again. If one day Donald Trump is elected and this site disappears and I disappear along with it, you will know why – I took on the dictator directly.
