Thirteen to one

Entrenched looter parties are struggling to keep a lid on libertarian vote counts by pigeonholing us in with asset-forfeiture parties (CPUSA, Green, Constitution, Prohibition, Tea…). For instance, at U. of Virginia–of which Thomas Jefferson was once justly proud–readers of opinion poll entrails put up a smirking election results article out of which the word “Libertarian” has been rectified with Inner Party precision.

The Florida LP missed a spoiler vote opportunity when it shied from running a candidate for the Senate. The Asian-style socialist beat the European-style nationalsocialist by a tenth of a percentage point. Gary Johnson got 2.2% of Florida votes two years ago, so this tight a race would have been easy to reverse into a gain for women with pro-choice LP spoiler votes. The GOP winner is rated 0.0 by NARAL on female individual rights to birth control.

With no Libertarian candidate in the running, that race did reveal that the ratio of votes tallied to partisan voters registered was less than one for both the Republicans (0.86) and Democrats (0.90). Florida, with 28% Non-Kleptocracy or Non-Duopoly voters was below the 1/3 cutoff for the chart below. But if the tallies there are at all representative of the nation, Libertarians are at least twice as effective at rounding up upset votes compared to the parties that fought the Civil War over tariffs, embraced Comstock laws, enacted the Prohibition Amendment, imported the Income Tax from the Antebellum Communist Manifesto, napalmed Vietnam and bombed Ottoman dregs until terrorists attacked U.S. buildings.

Kleptocracy sources now group all but The Kleptocracy into unperson categories. Adding together their figures lets us sort states by tenuousness of The Kleptocracy’s grip on their own voters:

Libertarians are in here somewhere...

States with 1/3 or more voters not registered GOP or DEM

Compare the above with states in which Libertarian candidates covered the law-changing spoiler vote gap in 2016:

Libertarian spoiler votes make the worst looter lose.

State leverage is a function of the size of the LP vote that covered the gap and the number of electoral votes involved in that race.

Colorado, New Hampshire and Arizona are definitely interesting places to look for Libertarian successes. Recall that success can mean repealing bad laws, getting our candidate elected, or both. The rest of the states in the top chart merit examination to see if unspoken-for voters there can be persuaded to let go of plant leaf prohibition, high taxes or efforts to make electric power scarce and expensive.

Private Gofundme donations for a border fence and Republican Senate gains this past election are strong evidence that mutilating the Libertarian Platform plank on border security has made it a liability to LP candidates, staff and volunteers. That makes it a current asset to parties eager for wholesale importation of girl-mutiliating terrorists and economic totalitarians. By restoring:

However, we support control over the entry into our country of foreign nationals who pose a credible threat to security, health or property.

to the Migration plank, we could again attract voters who are not interested in mass importation of berserkers or undesirables. The other sane alternative is to finish amputating the bloody stump and say nothing about borders–a subject already covered in the Constitution and federal regulations communist anarchists never read.

The other recently tacked-on plank–asking that someone other than government be entrusted with enforcement via deadly force–is also counterproductive, anti-libertarian, and certain to cause voters to cross busy streets to avoid our candidates. Complete mid-term vote counts are amazingly scarce, thanks to skillful elision, but LP supporters, donors and members have been dropping fast lately. That much is easy to verify.

Think about these planks if you are planning on attending the Libertarian National Convention in Austin.

Libertarian Platform Sabotage Results

scuttling the ship

Note the negative slope of the trendline

The 2016 Libertarian party platform increased our vote share 328%.

True, recent platforms cave to Dixiecrat and Republican race-suicide screaming compared to the pro-choice 1972 platform. But LP delegates in 2016 at least rejected the obnoxious anti-choice, force-initiating infiltrator and got us decent candidates. Nationwide, voters were pleased that the LP platform committee was finally understanding the definition of government, and rewarded us with four million votes. This was WAY more votes than the difference between God’s Own Prohibitionists and the Econazi-influenced, carbon-tax Democrats. The 2016 election earned the LP national spoiler vote status, making platforms contrary to ours likely to tip their candidates into the losers’ dustbin. The looter kleptocracy was desperate, until a single fifth-column infiltrator acted to save their jobs, pelf and boodle by turning donors, supporters and voters against the LP.

The trick was to side with Democrats eager to import additional Saracen terrorists and People’s State looters into These Sovereign States and Dominions by calling such uninspected entry “open borders.” District court judges deem it a felony as of the second offense. My guess–judging from the graph above–is that this error probably became known in August of 2018. Sure enough, as of August, active donors, myself included, recoiled in horror and stopped pouring money and effort into an organization so easily duped into political suicide.  What else happened?

passengers swimming away from wreckage

Note the increasing slope of the bad trendline

Libertarian Party donors swam away from the scuttled ship in droves. The saddest part is that staff members, who had nothing to do with the (pick one) treachery or idiocy, now see their future endangered as a result. The absurd part is that the whole job of the LP is to endanger the jobs of partisans, politicians and candidates whose platforms and bills run counter to our original principles and (unsullied) platform. Looter party staff (not our people) need to be quaking at the thought of 6 million voters plunking for our proposals in 2020. But noooo…

Donors are grasping for other floating planks

Observe the sharp drop in regular donors

Libertarian Party donor renewals, which had been zigzagging upward–as you’d expect given the hockey-stick growth in our voters–began falling consistently as of August of 2018. Leaving aside the irrelevance and non-sequiturs rallied in support of amending the perfectly good 2016 border security plank into today’s counterproductive seppuko plank 3.4, the financial results couldn’t be clearer. The no-borders platform modification, intentionally or by error of judgment, has been as foolish a disaster as was ever injected into an LP platform since the child molestation planks planted in the 1980s. Entryism is a thing and security clearance forms make it clear that infiltation of government agencies is unwelcome. Indeed, political primaries are carefully organized to curtail infiltration by competing partisans eager to nominate the town drunk.

The pattern is much like brood parasitism, in which cowbirds or cuckoos infiltrate their eggs into a nest. The eggs hatch and the parasites kill off the invaded species’ young, leaving the bereft to raise parasite fledgelings to maturity. Only about 10% of parasitized bird species are able to defend themselves by puncturing and/or ejecting the infiltrating parasite eggs. The Libertarian Party–torn between hawkers of “big tent” dilution and law-changing spoiler vote strategists–would do well to learn to identify nest parasitism and eject infiltrators and saboteurs. Governments do this routinely. The U.S. Government indicted Scientologist infiltrators and does infiltrating of its own. Awareness of this sort of thing is ordinary due diligence and vigilance.

To outsiders contemplating the wreckage, the current LP platform committee looks a bit like a gaggle of intestines-for-brains parasite hosts. 

Weak-minded fools

Jabba the Hutt made the call…

Thoughtful spoiler-vote libertarians can nevertheless rescue the party from ruin. For that you need only shift your support to your state and county Libertarian Parties. Donations to battleground state parties (New Mexico, Minnesota, Maine, Michigan, Colorado, nevada, New Hampshire, Wisconsin, Arizona, Pennsylvania, Florida, Virginia, Georgia) will economically gird us for battle during the shakeout of the national LP’s delinquency. Those Libertarian-friendly States manage 127 electoal votes. That strategy will put the Kleptocracy fifth column on notice that protagonists of individual rights have more sense than 9 out of 10 parasitized bird species.

Obamacare eliminates GOP voters

mystical looter

“I am not a crook!”

Richard Nixon’s Congress modified the tax code to force every American to subsidize Republican and Democratic candidates–precisely when the Libertarian Party was formally organized. This was a brilliant strategy.

These IRS transfer payments have since 1971 transferred money from producers to media presstitutes. In exchange, those worthies constantly din into voters heads’ that a libertarian vote is a wasted vote. To persons of a couple of standard deviations lower than normal intelligence, this sounds like a valid argument. The premise, of course, is that every election is about the success of individual candidates. The lie they seek to convey is that voting is NOT about the success and freedom of the individuals casting the votes.

Every year more voters send the freedom message to Congress

Logistical substitution curve fitted on LP ballot share: spoiler votes deliver a clear message.

Prohibitionist domination of the Republican party made it as inevitable in 2007, as in 1929, that fanatical coercion of the banking and brokerage system would bring economic collapse. Tammany-style Democrats seen their chance and took it. The doctors who lied about beer, wine, coca leaves, peyote, mescaline, Indian hemp and LSD so that Republican and Dixiecrat politicians could legislate and loot at will were by 2007 a cartel snorting other people’s assets through hundred-dollar bills.

Outside, in the hospital waiting room, the sick and injured die filling out forms and signing over title to property. A license to practice medicine is like a prohibition agent’s license to padlock and confiscate under asset forfeiture. Rather than kill the golden goose by legalization, Democrats offered Socialized Medicine as the panacea for all ills.

Every American is now harried by telemarketing algos and forced at gunpoint to confess on their tax forms–(5th Amendment be damned!)–whether they paid tribute to Obamacare. The only way out of the mandatory funneling of cash to medical mafiosi is to leave the United States. Social Security checks go father in Mexico, Caribbean islands, South America and Canada–especially if you can get a resident visa.

The upside is a Pain Drain–of aging superstitious, brainwashable ex-pats no longer able vote in many US elections. Going, going, gone is their power to make birth control and plant leaves illegal, or to force the unsaved to urinate into sample cups so medical mafiosi can tear up their work permits.

The alternative? Rosa Maria Ortega was sentenced to 8 years in prison (and deportation), and Cristal Mason (guess what color), was sentenced to 5 years in prison. Their victimless crime was the same as that of a dozen others in North Carolina: “voting illegally.” For ex-pats to legally vote nationally, forms must be completed and ballots cast a month before the real election.

Ex-pats often cannot vote in the local elections that decide whether Stateside real estate will be exorbitantly taxed, then taken. Geezer Old Party voters must eventually choose between affordable medical care abroad and voting to bully pregnant women and shoot or jail blacks and hippies Stateside. Democrats, meanwhile, are busy trying to shut down electric power plants.

If you do not want to shoot kids over plant leaves, bully pregnant women, cause economic collapse or make electrical energy a controlled substance, you might want to vote Libertarian.

Amazon review censored?

fake libertarian skunk

Obnoxious creep

Lots of folks are whining that Tweeter, Farcebuke and ilk are “censoring” their communications. I just had Amazon refuse to post this review of their Gift Cards:

Worked 2 mos ago, failed just now

I sent one to another country and it worked fine. But when I tried to send to a friend in Texas, the interface kept blocking the purchase and demanding more input after–by my lights–all the fields were filled in. I finally gave up trying.

Amazon replied with this:

Thank you for submitting a customer review on Amazon. After carefully reviewing your submission, your review could not be posted to the website. While we appreciate your time and comments, reviews must adhere to the following guidelines: …

A few common issues to keep in mind:

Your review should focus on specific features of the product and your experience with it. Feedback on the seller or your shipment experience should be provided at http://www.amazon.com/feedback.
We do not allow profane or obscene content. This applies to adult products too.
Advertisements, promotional material or repeated posts that make the same point excessively are considered spam.
Please do not include URLs external to Amazon or personally identifiable content in your review.
Any attempt to manipulate Community content or features, including contributing false, misleading, or inauthentic content, is strictly prohibited.

So there it is. I tried to send a gift card to someone I’ve known for years. The interface refused to work and did nothing in the way of pointing out anything I had failed to notice. On the off chance they had failed to notice their interface was being unhelpful and refusing to accept money, I replied with my honest impression, and blam. My guess is they figure I was disappointed by the interface, not the product, and, well, there are organizations that consider their interfaces infallible, hence, above all caviling.

I’m not particularly upset and still plan to send my friend some other present from Amazon. There is probably a failure to communicate here. I may have overlooked something, and Amazon could just as easily program their algos to point to what it was and maybe even scold me for being so blind. I do not imagine there is some sinister conspiracy to shut me up. Quite possibly their algos flipped my flippant remark into a pidgeonhole for hostile cranks.

I do not doubt anything as successful as Amazon gets its share of hostile cranks. Even my own pitiful website has been hacked. I even got a fake ransom demand message pfrom a phake phishing pfor phools near Pflugerville (as if I were rich and famous).

It is possible that social media algos also do “judgment” calls of the sort. Something called Akismet searches my blog comments and accurately identifies spam–and algos are not famous for being smart. I wish I had half as good an algo looking over my gift card purchase attempts. Next time I try to send a gift card I am going to have a witness watching to spot what I might have missed.

Selfishness before Ayn Rand

Egoism does not aggress or rob

See 1940 original

In 1940 France and Britain were having expensive regrets about welshing on the loans they’d begged from the United States during WWI.

These United States were again selling them victuals and materiel they could not obtain from National Socialist Europe or Soviet Socialist Asia. But enslaving American youth to again intercede in bloody squabbles among European opiate peddlers was asking a bit much. To European socialists of both national and international persuasions, this refusal to sacrifice was the height of egotistical selfishness.  But is that the same as greed?

Selfishness is not predatory

Tatsuya Ishida’s SINFEST–The webcomic to end all webcomics

Ayn Rand had published Anthem in an England that was rapidly being transformed into the exact setting in which the novella had unfolded. Yet British intellectual-impersonators still echoed Hitler’s calls for “The Common Good Before the Individual Good.” Fifth-column agitators meanwhile harkened back to to the very Jesus der Fuehrer so often quoted, exhorting Parliament to surrender:

“Do not resist the one who is evil. But if anyone slaps you on the right cheek, turn to him the other also.” –Matthew 5:39

But Americans were learning by watching the “peace” coercive altruism had forged in Europe since the Molotov-Ribbentrop Agreement divvying Poland. Slavery, starvation, war and pestilence sprouted wherever predatory altruism lifted its outstretched arm in salute. The purpose of applied altruistic socialism (whether Christian fascism or lay communism) is to seize by force and threat of violence that which someone else has labored to produce. Ask yourself if this does not sound just a bit like greed, like coveting–then seizing–your neighbor’s goods?

Is this not Christian Socialism?

FAITH, OBEDIENCE, FIGHTING SPIRIT–The Catechisms of Fascism

Karl Marx did not use the wordcapitalism” in his Altrurian Bible.  But his disciples wasted no time in re-coining the term to describe the Christian monarchic mercantilism built upon coercive monopoly, slave labor and opium wars viewed as sublimely utopian by Adam Smith. Yet here we are in the 21st Century, while superstitious fanatics raid households and vehicles while looting bank and brokerage accounts under the aegis of “asset forfeiture.” If you rob a judge at gunpoint, that is your act of robbery. If the judge sends goons to rob you, that is your forfeiture of assets in the language of looter kleptocracy. Make sense? Libertarian, on the other hand, makes it clear that robbery and extortion are double-plus ungood.

If getting the exact meaning is important in your original work, isn’t it just as important in translation?
