Raico on Rothbard

Writes Ralph Raico about this

Mario,Your post was ridiculous. Mises knew very little about American politics, Hayek nothing at all, while Murray knew everything there was to know. Of course he would have supported Trump. Either Trump or Clinton will be the next president of the United States, and for Murray the overriding issue was always war or peace, which accounts for what you call his “erratic” political choices. Trump favors friendly relations with Russia and withdrawing from some of the US’s commitments to go to war for the sake of various allies. Clinton has gushed over every war she’s ever encountered and is capable of risking nuclear confrontation with Putin. She revels in destruction and death, for instance her cackling laughter at the murder of Gaddafi, “we came, we saw, he died.” Rightly called the Queen of Chaos, Clinton is the most dangerous person ever to run for president, and Murray would have hated her, as do I. Frankly, I’m getting a little tired of your constant sniping at Murray.
