What Will Trump Mean For Life, Liberty & the Pursuit of Happiness?

Jeff Deist, Daniel McAdams and Michael Oliver return as guests.

The political landscape has never been less certain. Those who voted for Trump were largely people who believed an uncertain future was better than the status quo that was leading America into a most certain bankruptcy and a lifestyle spiraling inevitably downward for everyone but the top 1%. When Rome was on a similar course its citizens settled for fascism as a trade off for poverty. In selecting Trump has America made a similar pact with the devil?

Have we given up our liberties to ensure we have enough to eat and a roof over our heads? Jeff and Daniel who both served as staff members to Ron Paul opine on the subject as will Anarcho-Capitalist Michael Oliver who, aside from his values of personal liberty, shares his latest technical views on stocks, bonds and precious metals markets.
