Irish bookies are betting 2.2 to 1 the Republican Party loses this election, as it has lost all other elections since the Bush Asset-Forfeiture Crash and Depression. This is one of the two parties that bombed civilians in places like Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, Afghanistan, Iraq and Syria, including Aleppo.
The Libertarian Party is proud to our support for peace and non-aggression, and we do not hang stuffed trophy heads of Semitic or Asian victims on the walls or carve celebratory notches into weapons. The USA was not a Christian National Socialist nation until the Eisenhower-Nixon Administration and Congress violated the First Amendment to mystify our currency, postal monopoly stamps, the Bellamy Pledge of Allegiance and government buildings, imitating the example set by Germany’s Third Reich.
This reversed 1797 treaty assurances given to Mohammedan nations that the US was NOT a religious State. That transformation also frightened the Soviet communist religious dictatorship (yes, communism is a religion) with the notion that Christian National Socialism had again taken over These States as during the Herbert Hoover Administration, which subsidized the rise of the NSDAP in Germany through the Moratorium on war debts and reparations in 1931.
Today we see daily reminders that that religious dictatorships on the other side of the planet, much like what is proposed in the GOP platform despite Supreme Court rulings and the urgings of nonfanatical clergy and lay associations, are museums of medieval superstition, torture, assassination, genocide, prohibitionism, financial collapse and war.
We want no part of the Crusades versus Jihad mentality that motivates God’s Own Prohibitionists and the Islamic State alike, and we are happy to recommend innocuous desuetude and avoid all entanglements there.
