Misdirection is a form of deception in which the attention of an audience is focused on one thing in order to distract it from noticing another. Up for election are 34 seats in the Senate, average age over sixty, and 435 seats in the House, average age there, 57. All of these politicians are mystical altruists, and every last one is committed to the initiation of force for both political and social goals.
These politicians all want you to concentrate on the limited-term presidential candidates. Why? For one thing, congressional reelection rates are all well over 80%, and every such reelection would increase their average age to 61–further entrenching an incompetent looter gerontocracy, and there are no term limits. This gerontocracy–not the President–is what makes the laws. I’m serious. You won’t see this on teevee, but the Constitution says that “All legislative Powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the United States…” That includes the power “To declare war” and “To borrow Money on the credit of the United States;” for which debt our children and grandchildren will be liable. This is debt they may not question, but may be gunned down wholesale for resisting, just as anyone and anything may be shot on orders from a number of those elder statesmen–with or without a declaration of war.
The President does not pass or repeal any laws or amendments. Instead, the President’s job is to “be Commander in Chief of the Army and Navy of the United States, and of the Militia of the several States” and to “take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed.” Other than that all he really does is hand out a bunch of government jobs. This fact should alert the reader to what is really at stake. Political jobs–including seats in the Congress–are the plums, the chance to be paid to sit on your ass at the expense of people forced at gunpoint to pay your wages.
Every participant in the Roman Holiday pitting the GOP’s
Sir Oswald Moseley (scratch that) Don of Real Estate against other looters equally committed to the initiation of force and violence ought to alarm voters as to how they can expect power to be wielded over them once in the hands of these creatures. Please listen closely to everything the Democratic and Republican candidates are saying about each other. Remember those truths when you see the LIB (that’s Libertarian, LP.org, Legalize Pot, Legalize Peyote, Legalize Peace, Legalize Profits) option on the ballot, and be sure and vote for Libertarian candidates for the Congress and Senate.
[Voters in any of the National Socialist states, identified in red on this map have no such choice. Voters in Venezuela, Bolivia, Saudi Arabia and other undemocratic dictatorships can vote Libertarian through their US Consulates by timely getting the ballot forms].
