Who is the REAL Authoritarian Running in 2020?

In the rare moments when Hillary Clinton chimes in about the Trump administration, and there are people out there who care enough to record it, she is very fond of using the word “authoritarian” to describe it.

This isn’t an accident. Just the word alone evokes a call-back to the dystopian novels many of us had to read in high school, including the immortalized 1984. The rest of the Democratic Party’s pack of presidential hopefuls have been happy to jump on this bandwagon, because they really want us to believe that they are in the running to save us all from an evil dictator.

Now, Trump’s been a very strange “dictator.” He slashed economic regulations, giving business owners more freedom. He cut taxes, allowing Americans to keep more of what they earn. And, despite being in the same political party as the religious right, he hasn’t touched any social issues since taking office — even though more than a few Republicans would certainly like him to.

On the other side of the aisle, we have people like Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren endorsing a radical agenda that includes banning air travel, population control, and regulating what you’re allowed to eat. At the end of the day, the color of climate change law isn’t green, it’s red: so who is the real authoritarian here?
