De lijsttrekker van de LP bij de Tweede Kamerverkiezingen van 15 maart 2017, Robert Valentine, is tegenwoordig aan het vloggen. Vanaf nu zal hij wekelijks een vlog voor ons maken.

In zijn eerste vlog heet Robert de nieuwe politieke partij GeenPeil welkom, maar legt hij uit dat wij als LP zijnde al 23 jaar voor meer individuele vrijheid én meer democratie pleiten. Het is goed om te zien dat steeds meer mensen zich realiseren dat het zoveel beter kan in ons land, maar als je écht voor vernieuwing bent is alleen de LP écht voor jou.

Almost every single item on this list is terrific. It'll be up to all of us to check that he will actually follow through on it.

The one big problem I have? His ideas about trade. I'm a free trade guy. It has increased the prosperity of literally billions of people, in the US and in other countries.

If he follows through on his trade plans he will ignite major trade wars that'll destroy the world economy, the American economy included.

So I hope that his advisers can convince him to soften his stance on trade.

This is good, nay, fantastic news:

In other words, merely two days after having won the presidential contest, Trump appears to be walking away from one of the most alarming foreign policy positions he repeatedly put forward throughout his entire campaign.

During his run for the presidency, Trump said that if he were elected, he would consider no longer defending longstanding allies South Korea and Japan unless they agree to pay us a lot more money to do so. He also suggested South Korea and Japan should consider getting their own nuclear weapons.

"We are better off frankly if South Korea is going to start protecting itself,” Trump told CNN's Anderson Cooper back in March. “They have to protect themselves or they have to pay us." In a January interview on NBC’s Meet the Press, Trump said, “We have 28,000 soldiers on the line in South Korea between the madman and them," referring to North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un. "We get practically nothing compared to the cost of this.”
