Why are so many libertarians for the Space Force? Isn’t this expanding government?

Other Quorans having taken on the main question, I go in a different direction . . .

. . . there are reasons why libertarians might find this funny. The move by Trump could be what Scott Adams said it is: a negotiating chip with destiny, gaining historical brownie points while not really having to do much for those points. Brilliant politics. Trump is a hoot.

Or it could be a step in negotiating with the Deep State.

[Trigger warning: readers weak in the Subtlety Department might find the rest of this too odd to contemplate.]

We out here in Everyday America have few facts to guide us regarding what the deepest, most secret parts of the military-industrial complex know that we do not. We do not know what was in the dossier that a pair of the Deep State’s agents gave Trump, which informed him of how limited is his power within segments of his Executive Branch. This feint with a Space Force could be an offering of peace to an out-of-control sector of the government that cannot account for $21 trillion in Pentagon (and HUD!) spending.

How could this be relevant? If the biggest secret is a known high probability of major, near-extinction level environmental catastrophe (caused by solar activity, vulcanism, comet hit or bolide, or some combination of these, perhaps made predictable by ecidence of a long history of a cyclical nature) or something even more bizarre, the “Space Force” notion may be a way to signal acceptance of the done deal that is the Deep State — for as anyone with a lick of sense knows, the Deep State is deeply unconstitutional, and arguably treasonous. (But more on the relevance problem below.)

They may want to come in from the cold of ultra-secrecy. They may wish to go partly public. And Trump could be gambling. Perhaps for his life. How so? Well, to play against the shallower end of the Deep State that is resolutely against him, as this insane Russia brouhaha seems to show.

Sometimes I wonder whether Trump won the presidency not because of the flaccid and ridiculous Russian propaganda efforts, but because the deepest and most secretive elements in our government couldn’t trust the most corrupt presidential candidate in American history, Hillary Clinton. The idiots in charge of the FBI and those in the NSA and CIA who are tasked with keeping the Great Distraction (of our incoherent foreign policy) going — yes, they naturally went all the way for the corrupt insider. But the Deepest State may not have been that stupid.

So perhaps they threw in their lot with the longshot, whom they thought they might more reliably play ball with. And with moves like the Space Force, Trump is sending them a big Puff of Smoke as Signal. “I will play along with you if you keep me alive and from being removed from office.” The Space Force works by showing that POTUS knows about a catastrophe problem, and that, say, sending up an orbital Ark could become official policy without the need for super-secrecy. After all, towards zero hour, secrecy could get in the way of the actual mission.

He may even be signalling that he wants on board.

Or likely not.
