Ralph Benko at Forbes produced a thoughtful analysis of the similar economic philosophy behind Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders. He calls out both men for actually being proponents of Cheneyian Economics (a modified form of Neo-Keynsian Economics named after Dick Cheney).
From the article: 
President Richard Nixon once (infamously) said “I am now a Keynesian in economics.” Moving right along, under the George W. Bush presidency, Treasury Secretary Paul O’Neill recalled Vice President Cheney, at a cabinet meeting, stating: “You know, Paul, Reagan proved that deficits don’t matter.” (And, pace Cheney, let it be noted that Ronald Reagan, in his farewell presidential address, highlighted his regret at his failure to bring down the deficit.)

He calls on both to follow Seegerian economics. From the article:
…consider Seeger’s Law, named after an observation by the late, great, folksinger Pete Seeger. On his 90th birthday Seeger stated an axiom by which all candidates would do well to live:
    Normally, I am against big things. I think the world is going to be saved by millions of small things. Too may things can go wrong when they get big….

Adding our editorial summary, it is amazing that small government, fiscal conservative Tea Party activists are so excited about a man, the Donald, who has more in common with Bernie Sanders than Ronald Reagan. You should definitely read the full article to see exactly what we mean.
