Michelle Malkin Exposes a Corporate Welfare Queen

"Don't be fooled by The Donald," writes the neoconservative, sounding like a paleolibertarian in this article — Donald Trump's Eminent-Domain Empire. She continues:
    Take it from one who knows: I'm a South Jersey gal who was raised on the outskirts of Atlantic City in the looming shadow of Trump's towers. All through my childhood, casino developers and government bureaucrats joined hands, raised taxes and made dazzling promises of urban renewal. Then we wised up to the eminent-domain thievery championed by our hometown faux free-marketeers.

    America, it's time you wised up to Donald Trump's property redistribution racket, too.

    Trump has been wooing conservative activists for months and flirting with a GOP presidential run -- first at the Conservative Political Action Conference in Washington and most recently at a tea party event in South Florida. He touts his business experience, "high aptitude" and "bragadocious" deal-making abilities. But he's no more a standard-bearer of conservative values, limited government and constitutional principles than the cast of "Jersey Shore."

Michelle Malkin, being the witch that she is, fails to mention that other than Ron Paul *all* presidential candidates are somehow involved with people who made great fortunes through the power of the state.

Though I detest the Donald, I personally would much rather vote for a man who attained his riches by questionably grabbing others' real estate than for those who made their money through the sale of armaments to the state, and seeing that those weapons were used, or other far most offensive abuses.

About "those who made their money through the sale of armaments to the state, and seeing that those weapons were used," I wonder if this is part of unleashing Malkin in their defense?

The Donald did recently question the ROK-US entangling alliance, but he also called for a stealing of Iraq's oil.

I can't help but think of him as the perfect president for the joke that America has become.

Her husband worked at RAND, the brain trust where the people who brought us the H-bomb and "winnable thermonuclear war" hung their hats.
