Civil Libertarians Increasingly Complacent as Creeping Tyranny Continues Full-Speed Ahead Under Trump

Aside from Libertarian stalwarts like Ron Paul, and commentary from the likes of Michael Krieger and Zero Hedge, all of whom continue to ring alarm bells, civil libertarians and conservatives seem to have become much quieter under the Trump administration.

Trump Protesters Conspicuously Late to the Game: Where Was the Outrage When the Stage Was Being Set?

With protests against Trump actions seemingly only exploding with greater force since his election, there is a critical question that is seldom being asked.
