VAT: Vermin-Added Tax

Nixon Adds Vermin

Read the original

Europe’s Ecological National Socialist political parties gorge on what they call a Value-Added Tax. But does coercive parasitism really add value? The diversion of currency to unproductive hands was identified as the cause the ruin of nations observed and documented in 1775. Was Adam Smith wrong about this most subtly camouflaged of visible hands?

A lump of uranium is transformed by application of science and engineering into electricity plus isotopes useful to physicians. The work done by human intelligence added value to the original raw material. The “Business Activities Tax,” popular in today’s Bandana Republics and Junta dictatorships, was repealed in the United States back in the sixties. But European collectivists happily imported the VAT as another “sin tax.” Like every other Comstock penalty or sin tax, VAT is a means of adding the sustenance of increased numbers of unproductive vermin to the burdens borne by any who commit the sins of voluntary production and trade.

But value is something Americans want voluntarily–not something that has to be forced at gunpoint. To Europeans, “former” Soviet citizens, and South Americans forced to vote by compulsion, values apparently mean something politicians want from you, voluntarily or otherwise. Richard Nixon is the prominent American who comes to mind when I think of a Vermin-Added Tax.  By voting for the Libertarian platform and its candidates, I send a clear signal to ALL politicians that my vote will never support a Vermin-Adding Tax. Eliminating subsidies to looter parties by removing Nixon’s anti-libertarian Subtitle H – Financing of Presidential Election Campaigns from the IRS code could increase revenue more than anything I can think of.

So why is Google appointing itself the assessor-collector to “eat out our substanceperpetrated, again, by foreign autocrats? How is vermin-added taxation different from a sin tax? I would gladly buy added Google Drive storage–just without burdening any foreign population with added vermin…

God’s Own Prohibitionist platform sayeth:

Republican platform, 2016: The progress made over the last three decades against drug abuse is eroding, whether for cultural reasons or for lack of national leadership. In many jurisdictions, marijuana is virtually legalized despite its illegality under federal law.

Three decades ago the Bush-Reagan Administration went postal with Just Say No shoot-first prohibitionism backed by misuse of tax laws and asset forfeiture looting. The Crash came in October of 1987, when every federal employee was forced to pee in a Dixie cup or be fired as agents fanned out to confiscate bank accounts, homes and vehicles.

New York repealed its state prohibition law in 1923, right after the economic depression that accompanied the onset of prohibition enforcement. Other states followed, alarming the Republican party, now heavily infiltrated by Prohibition Party regulars.

Republican platform, 1928: PROHIBITION: We reaffirm the American Constitutional Doctrine as announced by George Washington in his “Farewell Address,” to-wit: The Constitution which at any time exists until changed by the explicit and authentic act by the whole people is sacredly obligatory upon all. (…) The people through the method provided by the Constitution have written the Eighteenth Amendment into the Constitution. The Republican Party pledges itself and its nominees to the observance and vigorous enforcement of this provision of the Constitution. (NY World Almanac 1929 848) (Johnson and Porter 1975 288) [Nicholas Murray Butler offers repeal plank, hooted down]

Democratic platform, 1928: Law Enforcement: The Republican party, for eight years in complete control of the government at Washington, presents the remarkable spectacle of feeling compelled in its national platform to promise obedience to a provision of the federal Constitution which it has flagrantly disregarded and to apologize to the country for its failure to enforce laws enacted by the Congress of the United States. Speaking for the national Democracy, this convention pledges the party and its nominees to an honest effort to enforce the eighteenth amendment and all other provisions of the federal Constitution and all laws enacted pursuant thereto. (…) (Johnson and Porter 1975 273)

Then came ANOTHER stock market crash when Dry Hope Herbert Hoover in 1929 got rid of “dog-eat-dog” freedom and imposed “his brother’s keepers” shoot-first prohibition enforcement using tax laws and asset forfeiture looting. The banking system quickly collapsed, unemployment was everywhere, and federal agents and police murdering people were in every newspaper every day.

Prohibition party platform, 1932: We unequivocally oppose the repeal or weakening of the Eighteenth Amendment or of the laws enacted thereunder, and insist upon the strengthening of those laws. …can and will coordinate all the powers of government, Federal, State and local, strictly to enforce, by adequate and unescapable punishment of all violators, this wise and beneficent law.

Liberal party platform, 1931: PROHIBITION: We demand the immediate repeal of the Eighteenth Amendment.

Democratic platform 1932: We advocate the repeal of the Eighteenth Amendment, …

GOP platform, 1932: PROHIBITION… The Republican Party pledges itself and its nominees to the observance and vigorous enforcement of this provision of the Constitution. … We do not favor a submission limited to the issue of retention or repeal, for the American nation never in its history has gone backward, and in this case the progress which has been thus far made must be preserved, while the evils must be eliminated.

American voters won back their right to partial self-ownership by eliminating the Republican candidates. Democratic party politicians got government paychecks, bribe money and jobs for their buddies. Republican politicians were avoided for 25 years and the Prohibition party slowly withered on the vine. That is the power of noncommunist Liberal or Libertarian spoiler votes!

Prohibition Murders, Then and Now

Dry killers then, legal now

Read about prohibition murders in Colorado

Thomas Jefferson’s Declaration of Independence indicted the King of England: For protecting them, by a mock Trial, from Punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States.

“Them” meant the “large bodies of armed troops” quartered “among us”–militarized asset-forfeiture police the Republican platform dedicates itself to as First Responders™.  H.L. Mencken translated this line of the Declaration as “When the soldiers kill a man, framing it up so that they would get off.” Here is a map showing people killed by police gunfire in 2017.

Mostly prohibition killings?

See how the newspaper compiled this report

The Democrats and Republicans in their platforms declare their support for the current policy: men with government guns kicking in doors, shooting and robbing people and pets, because of plant leaves! The Democratic platform, the one that calls for ecological nationalsocialist bans on fuels for electrical generation, and forcing us to buy medical insurance at gunpoint, does not contain the wordsderegulate” or “legalize” anywhere on its 51 pages.

The Libertarian party platform calls for repeal of all laws creating victimless “crimes,” advocates no energy pseudoscience and binds our elected officials to vote against all tax increases and for tax repeal when possible. It does not demand the entry of dangerous persons across our borders. Every spoiler vote for a candidate running on the LP.org platform packs the law-changing clout of at least six votes wasted on entrenched kleptocracy party candidates. Ours is the only political party in America that is growing and winning!

Integrity is their Enemy… 2

Part 2 of the 2016 LP Battleground state spoiler vote lever analysis

Spoiler vote levers: our 2016 vote % times that State’s electoral votes–a measure of clout

The Libertarian Party formed as Richard Milhous Nixon–a Quaker zealot like Herbert Clark Hoover–sought to strengthen the Comstock Law, all other prohibition laws, and use military conscripts to bring nationalsocialist eugenics to bear upon non-christian non-whites in the former French opium regie of Vietnam. These policies drove the dollar off the gold standard and prompted David Nolan to enunciate principles consonant with objective values, and with individual rights as the moral claims to freedom of action:

  • the right to life—accordingly we support the prohibition of the initiation of physical force against others;
  • the right to liberty of speech and action—accordingly we oppose all attempts by government to abridge the freedom of speech and press, as well as government censorship in any form; and
  • the right to property—accordingly we oppose all government interference with private property, such as confiscation, nationalization, and eminent domain, and support the prohibition of robbery, trespass, fraud, and misrepresentation.

The only answers to that are more deception, fraud and force by the entrenched Kleptocracy. Nixon’s cohort, within 24 hours of the Libertarian Party’s formation, made the Anti-libertarian law. This forcibly added government loot to the “contributions” of predatory corporations to bend “major parties” to legislate their will.  Communist and socialist parties were demoralized and strove all the harder to infiltrate the Democratic party. Faith-addled Comstock-law prohibitionists, nos disguising deadly coercion behind a “pro-life” mask, sought more control over the Republican party.  Both parties now invest stolen treasure and effort toward the perversion of voters’ principles. These labors generate fallacious slogans:

  • Perfection is the enemy of _______ (deception and treachery)
  • A vote for _______ (LP candidate) is a vote for _______ (other entrenched party candidate)
  • But Libertarians are in favor of _______ (something awful NOT in the libertarian platform)
  • The Libertarian candidate cannot possibly “win” (Win=be hired by government to help us betray and plunder voters).
  • Winning is getting our tool onto the government payroll to leech off of you. (Real winning is reducing the number of such leeches picking our pockets at gunpoint–this is what LP spoiler votes accomplish)
The Emperor is not a politician!

Scott Adams on non-politicians

But the practical and mathematical effect is that voters may now unequivocally identify freedom from coercion as the value they seek, and politicians cannot ignore that signal. Libertarian spoiler votes carry information content similar to that transmitted by prices. They take votes from both entrenched looter parties in proportion to the naked coercion those parties advocate, no matter how confusingly they confound the issues. This is easy to check using free spreadsheets.

The Libertarian party’s 4 million votes broke down into more votes than the difference between the hired and fired looter party in 13 states casting 127 electoral votes. For context, the anti-energy Dems lost the 2016 election by 74 electoral votes. Seven of those Libertarian battleground states were won by Republicans (for 13% of disputed electoral votes) and six by Democrats (with 11% of those electoral votes). Overall the Democrats, seeking coercion to make electricity and firearms more expensive lost on balance 2%, or eleven more electoral votes to LP candidates than did the GOP, which seeks to crowd prisons and make birth control, bail bonds, First Responders™ and drugs more expensive and dangerous.

Thirteen states are are now benefiting as Libertarian Battleground States for which both kleptocracy parties will pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any abettor, and oppose any competitor to assure the survival and the success of their half of the looter kleptocracy, its remoras and hangers-on. The reader no doubt recalls that These States started out as thirteen colonies abused by a smugly coercive mercantilist Metropolis. Please bear that in mind–and listen to what both entrenched party candidates say about each other–as you decide what (not who) to vote for next election.

Integrity is their Enemy… 1

Politicians and their accomplices are fond of reciting that “Perfection is the enemy of …” of what? A look at the plug-in variables used to complete the false dichotomy turns up: good, progress, completion, and a host of similar abstract nouns with pleasant connotations. But if we translate the concepts behind the phrase, its meaning turns out to be: “Integrity is the enemy of self-deception.” This is Part One of a two-part exploration.

Libertarian spoiler vote levers (vote % * electoral votes) in LP Battleground states

Farfetched? Here is a typical dictionary definition of perfection, which in politics is a verb, an ongoing process approaching a theoretical limit:

3. The action or process of improving something until it is faultless or as faultless as possible: e.g. Among the keytasks was the perfection of new mechanisms of economic management

Compare that with an attempted definition of integrity:

3. Internal consistency or lack of corruption in electronic data: [as modifier] : integrity checking

Integrity checking was the approach to logical cryptographic analysis Alan Turing used to help England crack the Enigma code in the war against National Socialist Germany. Turing’s preoccupation with integrity was belittled by Ludwig Wittgenstein in prewar discussions at Princeton U. Ayn Rand defines integrity more clearly than dictionaries compiled for the Great Unwashed:

Integrity is loyalty to one’s convictions and values; it is the policy of acting in accordance with one’s values, of expressing, upholding and translating them into practical reality.

In other words, integrity is ethical or moral perfection. Ask yourself what, then, is the meaning of political perfection as an ongoing process?  Now ask yourself: what is the definition of political corruption? The answer that comes to mind is betrayal of one’s convictions and values. You cannot translate campaign bribes paid by disparate artificial persons into platform planks and be consistent. But to use the government’s coercive power to meddle in trade and production and repay those bribes one needs to persuade voters to abandon integrity and betray some of their principles. Hence, perfection/integrity becomes an impediment to betrayal/corruption–but stating it that bluntly is politically incorrect.

The sanction of the victim must be obtained through fear or intimidation. This is why looter politicians paint “opposition” politicians as the very embodiment of impending doom. Their job is to grab at the initiation of force for the gain of their backers. The pundits and pollsters they rent are incapable of working the three-body-problem once third-party spoiler votes are involved. And no wonder! Third-party spoiler votes are investments in perfecting the rule of law and securing the blessings of liberty for ourselves and out posterity.

LP Spoiler Votes Repeal Bad Laws

Spoiler votes as agents of change were understood in 2007

Before 1971, small parties were without exception mystical, collectivist and/or nativist looters. Socialist populists of 1892 wanted the Communist Manifesto income tax which had been translated from German in The Red Republican in 1850. Coinciding with these mostly Christian altruists were the Prohibitionists, to whom the deadly threat of government guns would transubstantiate heathen tipplers into rum-hating fanatics all messed up on the Lord. The George Wallace and Tea Party approach meant the racial eugenics of woman-bullying Ku-Klux Christianity. Integrity in those three third-party cases meant pointing government guns at people to rob or brainwash them into submission. Their goal in every case was to dispose of the lives of individuals and the fruits of their labor. To mixed-economy politicians, these “third parties” were full of votes which, like money, could be suckered by flim-flam persuasion. After all, they all wanted practically the same thing.  All of that changed in 1971.

Pre-Libertarian Cycles

Cycle theories proliferate in Europe, where Liberal means laissez-faire to the educated. This particular one looks at oscillations in a system made unstable by altruism. The English it is written in is a second language (a concept that is hard to explain to Americans outside of Puerto Rico).

Still, the thoughts aren’t broken at all and the text is proof that political economy is alive and well in parts of Europe once enslaved by soviet socialist liberation. At a glance the graph shows “market share” of two broadly-described, evolving ideologies, the better of which is on the upswing at this Libertarian Moment, according to the author.

A Fisher-Pry graph would be useful

Simple linear trendline for libertarian vote percentages

This whole concept of market penetration and replacement of things like techie gimrackery (cellphones v. landlines, for instance) has been a subject of applied mathematics since the 1970s.  Today we have a definition of government perfected in 1908, and a proper purpose of government spelt out with the Non-Aggression Principle since 1947. Furthermore, the tacit assumption that there is something “good” about altruism has crumbled to powder at the feather-touch of a single question: Why?

Until that question was asked, force-initiating altruism waxed until the infected area became a totalitarian Altruria which promptly collapsed. The ruins were then gradually replaced by voluntarist individualism (however imperfect) in the cycle depicted. For the first time in history a non-aggressive party built on a consistent foundation may keep the blue line at its maximum value and the red line at its minimum henceforth. The Libertarian Party can accomplish this through the pressure of spoiler votes–the mechanism that spread totalitarianism before ethicists seriously analyzed the normative worth of 19th-Century assumptions. It’s certainly worth a try.

Nixon Subsidy Surprises Democrats

Slick Willie Clinton’s old lady broke taboo and mentioned the Libertarian Party. This in the same portion of her audiobook that talks about how surprised Democrats were over an overlooked 3% of registered voters.

But the losing party’s candidate was still clueless as to why Americans voted to keep electricity safe and legal. This was after an ordinary storm turned Puerto Rico into an unlit open sewer. The governor who handed his electors this mess is a member of the New Progressive party, an assemblage of faith-based, prohibitionists absolutely Hell-bent on sending any number of men with guns out to make sure nobody possesses the wrong kind of plant leaves. The party is absolutely opposed to any thought of decriminalizing or legalizing hemp.    But aside from equipping SWAT teams and prohibition snoopers with powerful assault weapons, the party is anti-Second Amendment, much like the 1938 German government.

Socialismo, impuertos y muerte

Progressive Party Prohibitionist

The New Progressive Energy planks are redolent with Green Energy Fund and renewable cant. A Spanish Caudillo wearing makeup advised by the Pope iv Rome is the party poster child. New Progressives despise icky fossil fuels (but press for a Gas Port, not nuclear energy). Platform energy planks go on and on about self-destructing windmills and flyaway solar panels, and fantasize over nonexistent pipedreams such as tiny Herbert Hoover gully dams, tidal, hydro and biofuel, electric cars and so on. Electricity from the monopoly is so expensive that theft is a major problem occupying much of the looter party’s platform space.  If it fails to produce electricity and gets people killed, you will find it in Progressive Party plans. You will not find any mention of nuclear energy in their plan. Entrenched looter parties have drawn up specifications to exclude the Libertarian Party–over and above the Nixon Anti-Libertarian law. So the LP is banned there as in such exemplary democracies as Venezuela, North Korea, Brazil and China.

Satellite photos show Puerto Rico about as well lit today as it was in 1896, when starving in concentration camps run by Big Government mixed-economy Spaniards. Just next door, the British Virgin Islands look like New York juxtaposed with North Korea in nighttime images. Naval nuclear reactors are what stand between Puerto Ricans starving in the dark and having some minimal power. The island has had spotty access to potable water for years and now relies on bottled water handouts. Compare Bay City, hit by the same hurricanes and now up and running nicely thanks to its nuclear reactors. Nice planning, wot?
