Ralph Nader’s Green spoiler votes in the 2000 election added up to 5 times the difference between winner and loser in the popular vote count. Victorious, George Waffen Bush dedicated his entire second term to ramping up federal-state asset forfeiture “sharing” in the proceeds of prohibitionist armed robbery. Green Party ideologues meanwhile ramped up the DEMs’ approach to climate data forgery. The result is shown in the graph.
This illustrates the effect of two main drivers: parasitical greed coupled with social pressure affecting opinions among the gullible majority, and the impressive power of small-party spoiler votes.
The Solomon Asch experiment proved that 3/4 of educated Americans will lie simply to follow the crowd. Indeed 2 out of 3 people will lie consistently out of simple simian mimicry. To start the ball rolling the DEMs had only to point to the Creation Scientists shaping Republican ideology. Anyone can observe in that the dangers of mindless mysticism exercising social pressure. Such pressure invariably justifies sending men with guns to brand citizens as felons–and shoot a few for good measure–over something as banal as hemp. With the GOP clearly dominated by violent superstition, the fakes and ex-scientists, by comparison, look like champions of scientific methodology.
This was precisely what happened from 1919 through 1933. Back then it was beer (a felony) that justified shootings, asset forfeiture and mass-jailing of the population. The losing party pushed the Kyoto protocol as a mechanism to transfer money from industrial nations to communist dictatorships, and from private enterprise to academic parasites.
In 1892 a Populist vote 6 times the gap between the winning and losing party vote tallies enabled three looter Congressmen to enact Communist Manifesto plank 2 into federal law and use the that tax to exacerbate financial collapse into a lengthy depression. This was how the 2000 election results allowed fanatical prohibitionist mystics to again destroy the economy, while environmental totalitarians impressed grants and subsidies parasites into an army of data-falsifying political operators. This sort of thing always happens in any contest between two factions, both of which lie, steal and coerce as a matter of preference. Both the Dem and GOP believe in taking by force what does not belong to them. THIS is honesty?
Your Libertarian vote can either free the Republican party from the thrall of religious national socialists or pave the way for its replacement by the LP.org
