The exact technical term for what the hypothetical “fence” in the Republican platform has evolved into is Grenzbefestigungssystem, or border fortification system. Germans and Austrians recognize this symptom of Socialism and refer to it as “die Amerikaner Mexicaner mauer.” The resemblance to die Berliner mauer is striking, to say the least.
According to Republican Party National Socialist dogma, there are only two regrettable but clearly distinguishable alternatives. “We” either have a wall topped with barbed wire and guarded by Todes-schutzen snipers and prohibitionist German shepherds, or we are stuck with the same “open borders” as the wretched and dissolute heathens of Switzerland, Sweden and Costa Rica. Republican fascination with China and ancient traditions evidently prioritizes medieval fortifications.
Remember the Maginot line? France built that after WWI to make sure The Accursed Hun could not take over its facilities for converting Vietnamese opium into heroin for export. Its strongest entrenchments were along the boundary of what was soon Vichy France, where the old Red Terror slogan, “Liberté, Fraternité, Egalité” was soon replaced by the goodthinkful religious conservative National Socialist values of “Travail, Famille, Patrie.” This, of course, occurred in the South of France, where the acetylmorphine facilities were located, most notably at Marseilles. Today’s low-yield nuclear artillery shells designed to mimic conventional shaped charges can make nasty, brutish and short work of these beached leviathans.
As during WWI and WWII, none of those conversant with what motivates such folly are now in a position to speak. Hemmed in by Espionage or Official Secrets acts and enforceable nondisclosure “agreements,” all American hints as to what motivated those wars–markets for plant leaf products–is bound up in dull State Department memoirs. Today’s, G.O.P. (God’s Own Prohibitionists) is a wholly-owned subsidiary of The Prohibition Party™ (Est. 1869). The Prohibitionist formula for making money with government gunmen was a gold mine while it lasted. Glucose and yeast plants converted corn, sulfur and water into the makings for beer and gin while border patrols kept out foreign, and dry killers confiscated domestic competing products. No taxes, no product liability. My God, how the money rolled in!
Republican appeasers have copied planks from their more godlike competitors in the Prohibition Party for well over a century. They did this not because they agreed, but to minimize the threat of spoiler votes that might otherwise dislodge their politicians. Back when all American Socialists were Christian National Socialists–the likes of Edward Bellamy, William Jennings Bryan and William Dean Howells –coercive prohibitionism, Blue Laws and the Comstock Law kept thought-criminals in their place. No newspaper dared mention what ingredients went into patent medicines, for the cartel would jerk its advertising. Birth control was unmentionable thanks to Comstock Law censorship making the entire subject a settled science. Nowadays however, awkward questions such as “why are we taxing Americans to send men with guns to occupy Afghanistan?” or “why build a wall?” are pointedly ignored or scraped off with formulaic retorts such as “protecting our borders.”
A truthful answer would be that organized sumptuary crime backing the GOP requires Afghan opium to supply the prohibitionists’ opioid addiction racket. The racket must be technically illegal (made feasible by bribery), so that selective enforcement of prohibitionism at once excludes foreign competitors and does away with all questions of product liability.
As in the 1930s, when the Herbert Hoover Administration used tax laws and government infiltrators to break up the Yeast and Glucose Trust, so today there is a need to get rid of prohibition laws that discriminate in favor of addictive poisons. Addictive poisons simply cannot compete with enjoyable drugs that are neither poisonous nor addictive. Nineteenth-century political parties, riddled with corruption, need level-playing-field competition from honest libertarian spoiler votes if we are to ever have a stable economy and free ourselves of the trappings of communo-fascist dictatorships masquerading as free-market democracies. Repealing the Nixon subsidies for looter party electioneering would make elections fairer and cut government spending.
