    In an article in Breitbart News yesterday, The Libertarian Case for Donald Trump’s ‘Buy American’ Order, the writer argues that:

    It hardly follows from this that all barriers to trade or trade preferences are somehow “bad.” The wealth and welfare of a country consist of more than its income. As Ludwig Von Mises and Murray Rothbard were at pains to explain, wealth is subjective, which means material wealth is not the only thing that counts. It is altogether possible that one may prefer lower living standards in favor of a more humane distribution of wealth or a government procurement policy that recycles dollars taxed and borrowed back into the domestic economy.

    The Libertarian Case for Donald Trump's 'Buy American' Order - Breitbart

    So, it's OK for the government to install trade barriers and pick winners and losers in American industry if the goal is to "humanely" redistribute wealth. If that results in lower living standards, so be it.

    Andrew Breitbart would roll in his grave if he saw what has become of his efforts.

    If that were possible he surely would. Andrew Breitbart would never support and vote for a Vietnam draft dodging socialist democrat ...and trump is both .. and a lot more evil gong on in him.

    They weren't actually advocating this position, just stating it as a possibility that someone might believe this.

    Don't think so. Look at the title of the article: "A Libertarian Case for Trump's Buy American Order". It is an opinion piece endorsing this sort of redistribution of the wealth action.
