Whenever A and B are in opposition to one another, anyone who attacks or criticizes A is accused of aiding and abetting B. And it is often true, objectively and on a short-term analysis, that he is making things easier for B. Therefore, say the supporters of A, shut up and don’t criticise: or at least criticise “constructively”, which in practice always means favorably. And from this it is only a short step to arguing that the suppression and distortion of known facts is the highest duty of a journalist. –George Orwell, Through a Glass, Rosily (link)
Terrified Democrats are lining up to vote for higher taxes, government control over trade and production and laws to make electric power unaffordable because the Republican their neighbors elected will do all that, ban birth control, fire Dem bureaucrats and make plant leaves unaffordable in superstitious glee. Yet Dems demand Libertarians pander to the fear of the exact same initiation of force they themselves endorse with their votes. No thanks, I’m with the Forgotten Party.(link)
The Nixon anti-Libertarian law did not exist in Orwell’s day.(link) But the Prohibition Party had by 1913 leveraged its 1.4% of the vote into Amending the Constitution to make beer a felony. The Socialists also had few votes, elected hardly anyone, yet their IRS will confiscate your car, home and bank account if you don’t pay their Manifesto plank income tax.(link) Even today Prohibitionists use the threat of spoiler votes to cause the Republican party to seek amendments to bring back Comstockism and ban birth control.(link)
As I write, a religiously indoctrinated woman is being groomed for Supreme Court powers to coerce and bully younger women in violation of the 9th, 13th and 14th Amendments. This occurred in papal Ireland, where women were robbed of individual rights for 35 years by a Republican-style Force Amendment passed in the Reagan era and only repealed in May of 2018. Canadians had the good sense to abolish all woman-bullying and race-suicide legislation, and Britain too was in the 21st century before it even arrived.(link)
Democratic candidate Biden is no less catholic than Amy Barrett or Adolf Hitler. Remember that when you see the opportunity to exercise courage and independence by casting a highly-leveraged vote for female Libertarian candidate Jo Jorgensen. Our 1972 platform became Roe v Wade after the election. Remember that, and recall what our adversaries are saying about each other when you see LIB on the ballot.
She’s with Us!
