Is Jo Jorgensen basing her campaign on a repackaged version of the anti-politic dogshit that Trump based his on?

Trump based his 2016 campaign on an appeal to populism claiming that he wasn't a career politician like those corrupted officials in Washington and claimed that he will give the power back to the. Meanwhile Jo Jorgensen is talking about taking power away from the government and giving it back to the people. Both of these platforms are based on anti-politics:And this is a false promise either way you package it. When Jorgensen talks about taking power away from the government (the one institution that the masses can effect by participating in), what she's talking about is handing it over to corporate entities who's sole purpose it is to extract the most from the rest of the population while giving the least back. It's a lot like how Trump got top executives involved in government affairs. Now some Libertarians might argue that "corporations can't coerces you like the government can". But this is a lie by omission because while it is true that they can't use the threat of violence like the government, if you give them control of essential services and use them to extort the rest of the population. So saying that because a conman doesn't use force the way a robber does doesn't change the fact that at the end of the day it's still theft just like coercion is coercion whether it's done via force or extortion. And once a charlatan dupes you into giving away your freedoms, they're often hesitant to give it back.
Basically the libertarian position is this: the government can be corrupted so lets give all power to the institutions that are corrupting them and I think the danger is that while her politics are way more authoritarian than Trumps' Jo is admittedly smarter and way better at peddling her dogshit.
