[Watch] “Classical Liberal” Dave Rubin Says He Is Voting for Trump to Save Capitalism
Dave Rubin who says he is a former progressive turned classical liberal says he is voting to reelect Donald Trump in order to “protect freedom and capitalism. Rubin has become a darling of the conservative movement by claiming to be a liberal who criticizes the left. He is often criticized as a conservative who will not call himself one. Many on the right find it great that Rubin still calls himself a liberal while blasting the left and is often lauded by the likes of Dennis Prager.
Rubin talked about his desire to save capitalism during a broadcast of his show on Glenn Beck’s BlazeTV while he was interviewing Michael Knowles of the Daily Wire. Knowles asked Rubin to describe a future sane world. Rubin said, “If we’re trying to get a roadmap to some sanity in the future, well, I think Trump has to win. I’ve been thinking about this a lot. It’s like, you know, every election now, ‘This is the most important election ever. It’s never been more important, you know, our values.’ Ugh. This time it’s like, man, if he doesn’t win, anything that we remember about America—and I don’t say this as some rah-rah Trump guy—they’re here to ruin, to wreck the entire thing. They’re here. It’s here. The ship has arrived on the shore. Do we want to just sit there and watch as they burn our houses down, or do we want to do something?”
Rubin continued, “Trump has to win. Now, not that that will stop this because it will then cause it to freak out even more. So, I think we’re in for four more years, crazy years, for sure. The only way we’re in for four more crazy years that at least continue freedom and capitalism is through Trump.
Rubin added, “I think 2024—even though nobody wants to hear the word 2024, right—I think that’s where this thing really gets reset. I think if Trump wins again, we’ll have had eight years of Trump. People will be exhausted by it, but we’ll have survived the intersectional, collectivist lunacy. Then, you know what happens? You’re going to get a crop of Republicans like Dan Crenshaw and Tim Scott and maybe Candace Owens, maybe Ben Shapiro, maybe Michael Knowles, maybe Nikki Haley … you will get a crop of truly intellectually diverse people who care, know about America.”
Rubin concluded by explaining that he was casting a vote for Trump. He said, “I am voting for Trump,” he said. “I just literally can’t see a way around it. It just is what it is.”
