Getting their Attention with Spoiler Votes!

Dad used to tell a story about this farmer whose mule wouldn’t obey.

They’d be plowing along and the farmer would holler “HAW!” The fool mule would turn right, or not turn at all, or stop! The furrows were all crooked. Finally the farmer found a “mule trainer” with a telephone number on the bulletin board at the general store. The farmer called the trainer who agreed to come out and serve up one free lesson as a special introductory offer.

Soon the trainer pulls up in his pickup and asks, “Izzat the mule?”
The farmer sez “Yep,” and before he could tell the trainer the mule’s name, the man pulls a two-by-four out of the truck bed, walks over to the mule, winds up and whacks him upside the head with the piece of lumber. The mule’s head swung round like a tetherball, smacked against the critter’s rump and barely bounced back in time to not get fallen on as the beast crumpled to the ground, blood coming out of one ear.

“Stop it!” hollered the farmer. “Heck, if I wanted him dead I’d a kilt him myself.”
“Calm down,” said the mule trainer. “This is what I do for a living. To teach a mule anything at all, first you gotta get his attention!” **

Sensei of solid smack upside the haid!

Meet my little friend, spoiler vote Dokuro-chan!

Political parties are like mules in this regard. They write platforms, usually to rob and cheat voters, then hire candidates to pretend the platforms (you’ll never read) are their own idea and that they can change them at will. They can’t–at least not until after they LOSE an election running on that platform.  For instance, George Waffen Bush’s first Executive Order called for packing the Executive Branch with faith-based prohibitionist bigots. Sure enough, those worthies colluded with dishonest State officials to waylay and rob motorists and confiscate homes, farms, bank accounts, securities portfolios and cash because “Reefer Madness” and “looters-by-law,” just like Herbert Hoover did from 1929 to March of 1933 (when FDR was sworn in, declared light beer not a felony and became President for life). Parties in States whose economies collapsed under that altruistic asset-forfeiture experiment wrote new platforms, and marijuana and forfeiture laws have been repealed like prohibitions on beer from 1923 to 1933.

One LP electoral vote made Roe v Wade decision!

Wet Dems elected 1932, 1936, 1940, 1944, 1948

No Republicans were ever elected again until Dick Nixon (a Quaker like Herb Hoover) slid in on Ike’s coattails in 1952 and lost to JFK in 1960. Nixon barely squeaked in by 0,7% of the popular vote because George “Klan” Wallace and Curtis “Nukem” LeMay parlayed their 14% 0f the popular vote into 46 electoral votes. To Nixon Republicans, those Dixiecrat spoiler votes were a heavy bludgeon upside the haid, and overnight they again became God’s Own Prohibitionists eager to kill commies on the other side of the planet and put hippies and naygurs in jail. When stingy old Ross Perot got enough votes to make George death-to-potheads Bush lose, Slick Willy Clinton instantly became a fiscal conservative, but prohibition still prohibited plants.

Equal but opposite reaction force...

Religious fanatics retaliate Bush meddling!

Then when Al Warming-oil Gore lost Tennessee and blamed Green party spoiler votes, the entire Democratic party became a wholly-owned-subsidiary of the Church of the Green Goddess Gaia. Data-altering scientist-impersonators rectified past temperatures cooler and faked post-freon-ban temperatures hotter than what thermometers said. But political laws still sent police to waylay, rob and kill motorists and confiscate homes, farms, bank accounts, securities portfolios and cash because “Reefer Madness” and “looters-by-law“… oh, and bomb the Saracen blackamoors on the other side of the planet.

Spoiler votes carry a big stick... bigger!

Fisher-Pry analysis anyone?

Before you vote or contribute, think of how badly you could hurt God’s Own Prohibitionists (Gee-Oh-Pee) AND the Damned Econazi Myrmidons (DEMS) by supporting Libertarian change. Your vote/donation packs the law-changing wallop of at least 6, probably 21, and possibly as many as 500 votes/donations wasted on tax-subsidized, entrenched kleptocracy parties.

Asset Forfeiture Panic of 1873

Here is the text of the Comstock law.
March 3, 1873, 42nd Congress, page 1873, amending the already harsh and lengthy postal monopoly law of June 1872, which allowed Comstock himself to meddle in the mail service….

CHAP. CCLVIII—An Act for the Suppression of Trade in and Circulation of, obscene Literature and Articles of Immoral use. Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled, That whoever within the District of Columbia or any of the Territories of the United States, or other place within the exclusive jurisdiction of the United States, shall sell, or lend, or give away, or in any manner to exhibit, or shall offer to sell or to lend, or to in any manner exhibit or shall in any way publish or offer to publish in any manner, or shall have in his possession, for any such purpose or purposes, any obscene book, pamphlet, paper, writing, advertisement, circular, print, picture, drawing or other representation, figure or image on or of paper or other material, or any cast, instrument, or other article of an immoral nature, or any drug or medicine, or any article whatever for the prevention of conception, or for causing unlawful abortion, or shall advertize the same for sale, or shall write or print, or cause to be written or printed, any card, circular, book, pamphlet, advertisement, or notice of any kind, stating when, where, how, or of whom, or by what means, any of the articles in this section hereinbefore mentioned, can be purchased or obtained, or shall manufacture, draw, or print, or in any wise make any of such articles, shall be deemed guilty of a misdemeanor, and, on conviction thereof in any court of the United States, or in any Territory or place within the exclusive jurisdiction within the United States, where such misdemeanor shall have been committed; and on conviction thereof, he shall be imprisoned at hard labor in the penitentiary for not less than six months nor more than five years for each offense, or fined not less than $100 nor more than $2000, with costs of court.

Mystical prohibitionism with guns

Previous Draconian law meddling in international communications

SEC 2. That section one hundred and forty eight of the act to revise, consolidate, and amend the statutes relating to the Post-office Department, approved June eighth, eighteen hundred and seventy-two, be amended to read as follows:
“Sec. 148. That no obscene, lewd, or lascivious book, pamphlet, picture, paper, print, or other publication of an indecent character, or any article or thing designed or intended for the prevention of conception or procuring abortion, or any article or thing intended or adapted for any indecent or immoral use or nature, or any written or printed card, circular, book, pamphlet, advertisement or notice of any kind giving information, directly or indirectly, where, how, of whom, or by what means either of the things before mentioned may be obtained or made, nor any letter upon the envelope of which, or postal-card upon which indecent or scurrilous epithets may be written or printed, shall be carried in the mail, and any person who shall knowingly deposit, or cause to be deposited, for mailing or delivery, any of the hereinbefore-mentioned articles or things, or any notice or paper containing any advertisement relating to the aforesaid articles or things, or any notice, or paper containing any advertisement relating to the aforesaid articles or things, and any person who, in pursuance of any plan or scheme for disposing of any of the hereinbefore-mentioned articles or things shall take, or cause to be taken, from the mail or any such letter or package, shall be deemed guilty of a misdemeanor, and on conviction thereof, shall, for every offense, be fined not less than one hundred dollars nor more than five thousand dollars or imprisoned at hard labor not less than one year nor more than ten years, or both, in the discretion of the judge.”

[$5000 would in 1873 buy 221 oz of gold, today worth over $295,000]

SEC. 3. That all persons are prohibited from importing into the United States from any foreign country any of the hereinbefore-mentioned articles or things, except the drugs hereinbefore-mentioned when imported in bulk, and not put up for any of the purposes before mentioned; and all such prohibited articles in the course of importation shall be detained by the officer of customs, and proceedings taken against the same under section five of this act.

[asset forfeiture provision]

SEC. 4. That whoever, being an officer, agent, or employee of the government of the United States shall knowingly aid or abet any person engaged in the violation of this act, shall be deemed guilty of a misdemeanor and, on conviction thereof, shall for every offense be punished as provided in section two of this act.

SEC 5. That any judge of any district or circuit court of the United States within the proper district, before whom complaint in writing of any violation of this act shall be made, to the satisfaction of such judge, and founded on knowledge or belief, and, if upon belief, setting forth the grounds of such belief, and supported by oath or affirmation by the complainant, may issue, conformably to the Constitution, a warrant, directing him to search for, seize and take possession of any such article or thing hereinbefore mentioned, and to make due and immediate return thereof, to the end that same may be condemned and destroyed by proceedings, which shall be conducted in the same manner as other proceedings in case of
municipal seizure, and with the same right of appeal or writ of error: Provided, That nothing in this section shall be construed as repealing the one hundred and forty-eighth section of the act of which this act is amendatory, or to affect any indictments heretofore found for offenses against the same, but the said indictments may be prosecuted to judgment as if this section had not been enacted. APPROVED March 3, 1873.

Here was a law inviting faith-based zealots to forcibly meddle in and make seizures against trade, production, healthcare, speech, writing, advertisement, seeing, reading, and even mailing a letter or postcard! Sure enough, BLAM! By the sheerest of coincidence (to GOP and Democratic Party eyes), the destruction of freedom engineered by the 1872 Postal Monopoly law morphing into the Comstock laws at federal and state levels immediately preceded the Panic of 1873 and a ghastly depression! The Kleptocracy spares no effort in coming up with alternative causation scenarios.

This sort of error was repeated in 1907 and  1927, was loudly publicized in 1929 and silently enforced in 1932, 1987 and 2007. Flash crash repetitions occurred in May of 2010 and March of 2015. Yet economist-impersonators lecturing at subsidized schools direct attention away from these sorts of correlations and the inductive temptation they entail. Some stock market investor or corner-seeking clique is instead singled out for blame, as in Farenheit 451.

The idea of fanatical Altrurian looters or faith-based zealots turning the police into a lynch mob capable of collapsing the economy is not allowed inside of government schools. Since learning from experience is discouraged by collectivist trompe d’oeil in History, to preclude repetition of such crashes and depressions, an Atlas Shrugged Amendment would serve just as nicely. The free trade amendment would make a nice cornerstone to the Libertarian Party Platform:

Congress shall make no law abridging the freedom of production and trade.

The LP already appropriated the Non-Aggression principle as set forth by Ayn Rand in 1947–while minions of Hitler’s Socialist Altruria were stretching ropes at Nuremberg. That principle has served us well. The Republican Party has for decades copied the 1976 Prohibition Party platform plank urging a Constitutional Amendment, Why? To overturn the Roe v. Wade decision copied from the 1972 Libertarian platform. Republicans appropriated the Prohibition Party plank demanding physicians be constitutionally coerced in order that women shall not possess individual rights.

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.

Pre-Soviet Democrat

Before looters again took over the Dems

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 Metropole. 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.

To be continued…
