Here is a sample of Prohibition Party rhetoric from 1892, before their complete takeover of the Republican Party 40 years later. Note the resemblance to Mohammedan Sharia Law.
The Youngstown Vindicator, July 5, 1892 1… GRAVE CHARGES–Made by the Prohibs in their Convention–THEY DENOUNCE THE SPOILSMEN–… Following are the resolutions as adopted by the convention: The Prohibitionists of Mahoning county, in convention assembled, acknowledge Almighty God as the source of all true government, and his law as the standard to which all civil laws should conform.
We adopt the principles set forth in the national convention at Cincinatti June 29–recognizing that prohibition of the liquor traffic is the dominant issue before the American people, and we invite to full party fellowship all those who are with us agreed that the Prohibition party can and will destroy the traffic if in power.

This religious government party achieved a record 2.2% of the popular vote in an election the Democrats won by a mere 3.3%. This made the T-totalitarian Sharia Law vote a force to reckon with in that election. The People’s Party, pressing for the Communist Manifesto income tax, won 8.51% of the vote. That amounts to 2.5 times the difference between winning party and losing party. To give you an idea of the power of these third-party votes, within two years that looter party’s income tax was the law of the land, though no such tax was in the platform of either Kleptocracy party in 1892. In another 27 years Prohibitionist Sharia Law would be enshrined in the US Constitution alongside Communist Manifesto plank 2–much to the detriment of the Bill of Rights. These two usurpations, the communist 16th and the protestant 18th Amendments directly caused the complete collapse of the national economy into a Great Depression of Hoovervilles.
Compare the 1892 Prohibitionists with this language from the 2016 GOP platform:
Every time we sing, “God Bless America,” we are asking for help. Strong families, depending upon God and one another… A young person’s ability to succeed in school must be based on his or her God-given talent and motivation… the best stewards of our country’s God-given natural resources. The progress made over the last three decades against drug abuse is eroding, whether for cultural reasons or for lack of national leadership. Mandatory minimum sentencing became an important tool for keeping them off the streets. Their (puppet juntas’) sacrifice and suffering must not be betrayed by the accession to power of murderers and drug lords. …our southwestern border at the hands of drug cartels and other gangs…
Just as in the 1920s and 30s, when fanatical mystics used the violence of law to make light beer a felony, dry killers murdered children and adults, their impunity guaranteed by mock trial just like today. The glucose and yeast trust funded prohibition to eliminate distillers, vintners and brewers as middlemen. Today the booze trust, organized fanaticism and corrupt political soft machines inflate and recycle confiscated drugs and other assets into campaign coffers. Your Libertarian vote–worth five to forty regular votes in law-changing clout–can stop the berserkers and restore peace and freedom.
Why not delve into the failure of Prohibitionism that caused the 1929 Crash? Prohibition and The Crash–Cause and Effect in 1929 does exactly that, matching newspaper accounts against stock market reactions and competing theories. It is live on Amazon Kindle for the price of a pint.
