Defund the LNC

Current maladministration has cut ballot access by 40% and reversed 2016 vote gains

Libertarian party candidate Joe Jorgensen came in dead last among Central Texas Libertarian candidates. Was this because of some failing on her part or perhaps because of her unwanted running mate? Jeremy “Spike” Cohen gave no indication that he had even glanced at the Libertarian party platform when his candidacy was announced. Nor does he write anything down. He did however make a recorded statement:

I understand that the Platform is an attempt to compromise between different positions and I completely respect that, but as an individual candidate my policy is anarchy. –Spike

Jeremy evidently doesn’t read much either, or he would know that the platform of the Libertarian party is not an endorsement of anarchism. Our first candidate, John Hospers, identified himself as “an unreconstructed minarchist.” His book, Libertarianism, debunks every fallacy anarchists put forth in support of their rejected theories.

Libertarian candidate vote shares in Tavis County Texas, 2020

So what do the voters think of this anarchist innovation? Was the Travis County Texas election result a statistical outlier? Jo Jorgensen also came in dead last in Nevada’s major elections. Indeed, the Libertarian party has helpfully posted a list of candidates and their vote counts at LP.org

From that admittedly defective list we can see that of the 515 candidates fielded by the Libertarian party, only 29 had a lower vote percentage than the Jorgensen-Cohen ticket. That comes to 5.6% of the total number of candidates. In other words, 94.4% of all Libertarian candidates nationwide got a larger slice of the vote count than Jo Jorgensen while burdened with an anarchist as a running mate.


Adding up the percentages of the various states and taking the average you’ll see that the average Libertarian party candidate got 13.6% of the vote. This is about what you would expect looking at the curve fit for presidential votes as it stood before the platform was mutilated in 2018. So what moved Jo Jorgensen’s campaign way below the 12 to 14% suggested by the mathematical model? One of the changes proposed by an anarchist on the platform committee called for uninspected entry across the border, with no requirement to so much as produce identification.(link)

This suicidal change was overwhelmingly criticized on conservative media, and gleefully ignored by Democratic Party candidates. Dems instead clung to the Libertarian party’s abandoned 1972 plank that became the Roe v. Wade decision. Instead of the Libertarian call for deregulation of all professions, such as the practice of medicine–to break up cartels making health services unaffordable–Dems opted for socialized medicine subsidies to the insurance, medical and pharma cartels. Dems also discarded the Biden-Clinton-Obama War on Plant leaves and copied Libertarian drug leniency. Results indicate this was an advantageous move. But what about the DNC leadership? What did voters think of them?

Libertarian voters nationwide rejected LNC anarchists and platform mutilators

Several of the 2020 Libertarian candidates now listed on the LP website actually pushed for the 2018 platform mutilations. These six also, I believe, backed putting communist anarchist Jeremy “Spike” Cohen on the ticket instead of the amiable and inspiring Jacob Hornberger. Yet their own average performance as vote-getting candidates before the public is not at all inspiring.

Joe Henchman earned a much lower vote percentage than Spike and Jo, which is not surprising. None of the other five came anywhere near the tentative Libertarian average vote share of 13.6% for the United States–the share predicted by the logistic curve model I’ve published repeatedly since 2016. One gathers that Libertarian supporters nationwide are able to sense and reject the insincerity of saboteurs currently infiltrating the National Libertarian Party.

Why Trump Lost

Disclaimer: I did vote republican once, to expiate having voted democratic once and for the sake of Second Amendment Antinuclear Weapons.(link) Since then I have closely observed The Kleptocracy with an eye to poaching their votes to make leveraged Libertarian spoiler votes.(link) Here in three images is a visual summary of why even the most dishonest and sclerotic dementia patient was more attractive to voters than Trump The Antichoice.

Reason 1: Lindsey Graham, the Redneck with Green Teeth who portrayed Justice Amy as his malleable tool of The Antichoice (link)
Spiro Agnew, Tricky Richard Nixon (Quaker 2.0) and Billy Graham as America’s most popular in 1968
Popular American National Socialist heroes 52 years later, in 2020. See any change from 1968?

Add to this the historical fact that prohibitionist asset forfeiture looting as practiced by Republicans in 1873, 1907, 1920, 1929, 1932, 1971, 1987 and 2008 cause fractional-reserve banking liquidity crises and market crashes that damage the economy and wipe out your retirement savings. The most mundane historical facts show clearly that God’s Own Prohibitionists are way more dangerous to the economy than even the pansy-left half of The Looter Kleptocracy. The 19th Amendment and original LP platform finally made girl-bullying as untenable in These States as in Ireland since May of 2018.

Trump Asset Forfeiture

These are DEA forfeitures alone, no DOJ or State and County forfeitures included (link)

The Democrats won in 2008 because George Waffen Bush wrecked the economy with faith-based asset forfeiture programs. Such confiscatory looting has been going on since the Comstock era, when the postal monopoly in 1873 was converted into a confiscatory agency of puritan altruist uplift.(link) Prohibition Party spoiler votes reinforced by socialist spoiler votes (they were pals before the Bolshvik revolution) brought on prohibitionist legislation and amended the Constitution. (link) This brought the Crash and Great Depression in 1929, and more in 1971, 1987 and 2008.

Democrats quickly worsened matters, using takings to fund bailouts of their large donors. Republicans expanded this asset-forfeiture robbery from behind the badges of First Responder™ qualified immunity. Suddenly, according to current news accounts, Americans have taken to hunting and killing police as randomly as they themselves–their children and their pets–are hunted and killed by police on orders from looter politicians.

Kangaroo court trials justified huge civil penalties and the prohibitionist Pure Food and Drug Act, once it became enforceable in 1907, promptly crashed the banking system.(link) National prohibition again crashed the economy–in 1920-23,  and again in 1929-33.(link) Nixon’s Operation Intercept caused a recession in 1971, and the Graham-Biden-Reagan-Leahy-Kerry drug prohibition, forfeiture, imprisonment and deportation laws generated the Crashes of 1987 and 2008. (link) Above are Trump Administration DOJ takings under the pretext of asset forfeiture. (link) They do not seem to be as bad as when the Dems were in power, but that is small consolation to politicians deservedly tossed out on their asses.

The Dems never discuss the takings they looted us for after Bush wrecked the economy with way lower forfeiture numbers. Nor do Republicans talk about these figures or the Flash Crashes that coincided with bank raids or suddenly-announced changes in these predatory policies. The Dems understood this (as they understood it in 1932) and erased all men-with-guns planks from the drug policy portions of their platform after being clubbed out of the ring by 2016 Libertarian spoiler votes. Republicans stood pat on a platform dedicated in its preamble to dog-shooting First Responders™ and their SWAT teams.

…people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures…

Dems sure as hell did better than in 2016 against the stand-pat Republican platform dedicated to bullies with guns. Observe: Dems copied some LP policies, Dems won election. Comstock Republicans scare the daylights out of women voters by putting (according to Communist News Network) a faith-addled fanatic on the Court to overturn the Libertarian Roe v. Wade decision, Republicans lose election.

The candidate that liked libertarianism in 2016 won. The party that deleted its anti-libertarian War On Plant Leaves verbiage in 2020 won, and the party that retained its platform demands for coathanger abortions and the robbing and shooting of youth over choice of vegetation may very well have lost. Got that? Libertarian spoiler votes–when the LP platform is not deliberately sabotaged–are a reliable indication of what planks the looters ought to delete on pain of themselves being deleted from office.

Only by voting Libertarian can you express awareness of and opposition to cruel and irrational enactments. You could have invested a law-changing leveraged vote on the permanent record opposing these robberies, the prisons they build, the stresses they impose on the banking system and the economic crises they precipitated in 1907, 1920, 1929, 1971, 1987, 2008 and the Flash Crashes of 2010 and 2015. Why follow the Germans’ belief that fascism and communism are the only possible alternatives? Look at where those policies put Germany in 1947, as Atlas Shrugged was being written.

If you missed your 12th chance to vote Libertarian you sanctioned coercion. Libertarian votes, though thinned down by communist anarchist infiltration of the platform committee and general sabotage nationally, still covered the gap in many county and state elections and elected a mess of candidates. (link)

Burdened by a communist anarchist running mate, Jo Jorgensen got the smallest number of votes of any libertarian near the capital of Texas, and barely edged out None Of The Above in Nevada. The 2016 platform needs to be restored in 2022 to normal constitutional border inspection to detect terrorists and bioweapons.

Communist anarchists on the platform committee can be sent back to their East-German style intellectual leaders, and the Libertarian party, sadder but wiser, can resume increasing its spoiler votes by 80% per year as occurred just before the 2018 changes.

Anarchist Candidate Results

Hank Phillips to Libertarian Party, August 7, 2020: “Letting idiots like the Mises Caucus, Spike and Das Boothead wreck the party is NOT the answer. Neither is whining.

Hank Phillips, August 14, 2020: “Yep. We could have let Jo choose a sane, competent and non-communist running mate to give the Kleptocracy cause to shudder in its jackboots. But noooooooooo. The senile Mises to Pieces caucus had to saddle us with that f*cking nitwit! This is your doing. The State and county LPs are doing great work in spite of your backstabbing. Now the identical communo-fascist factions are fielding decrepit geezers on platforms of prohibitionism and asset forfeiture. And why not? It’s not like they have US to worry about anymore.

August 18: Message received…. but whoever stuck you with Spike the commmunist anarchist precluded my adding financial contributions of the sort I sent Gary’s Campaign. 
September 2: Unfortunately, I will not send money to the national campaign until after Spike is Raptured to that great communist anarchist concentration camp in the Sky or falls under the wheels of a speeding bus.  But do lemme know if that happens. 
Jo, your message should stress that LP votes pack persistent law-changing clout that puts pressure on the entrenched looters to repeal bad laws. Furthermore, that spoiler vote pressure is leveraged, so that the folks suckered or frightened into voting for coercion dilute the effective power of their votes—their wasted votes. This is explained in detail in “the case for voting Libertarian” …Steve, If Spike the communist anarchist weren’t on the ticket, you’d already have what you want. I’m supporting other LP campaigns. Ain’t competition grand?
September 10: Army of God infiltrators pressured the platform committee to remove the Roe v Wade language that was in the 1972 and 1976 platforms and replace it with the cowardly straddle that drives women voters away. As long as there is drug prohibition vetted by medical profession cartel licensees, women surprised by unwanted pregnancy cannot after taxes afford even the simplest procedures. Restore the plank and worried women will again give a damn whether the LP lives or dies—and express that with donations.
September 17: After Thomas Knapp suckered the platform committee into sabotaging the 2016 platform, every terrified conservative on Youtube and other media hollers “open borders” to prove Jo is an anarchist communist infiltrator. This is unfair when the real anarchist communist infiltrators are Knapp, Vermin and his Boy Wonder Cohen. I do not know how to fix that.
September 24 to Dan Fishman: My dues are only due again in 7 weeks and I have been contributing to the Dallas County LP as the only one I’m really proud of. 
September 29: There ya go. Rub that communist anarchist infiltrator into everyone’s faces until the LP is back down to the percentage the Child Molester planks brought us in 1988-92. To help the LP you should resign and rejoin CPUSA. Brainless n Boothead is copying Wavy Gravy and Pat Poulsen. 

September 30: Show me Spikey Pinhead resigned, replaced by an actual libertarian candidate. Until then, local parties only for me, the Mises Caucus Anarchistas for you. (…) But the LP sure had a good thing going before those open borders, uninspected entry anarchists infiltrated the platform committee via misdirection approval voting. Putting one on the top ticket to ruin Jo’s campaign was the height of idiocy. How can we look people in the eye and say the LP is not as stupid as the looter parties who at least had sense enough to not put a communist anarchist up for VP. Even the voters who wanted jihadists and infected cattle swarming across the border draw the line at amok anarchist communists. 
October 16: It getting Jo votes really mattered to you, Jeremy the communist infiltrator would NOT be on the ticket. 
October 19: I’ll be donating some more to the Dallas LP, count on it. I am glad Spike hasn’t completely ruined Jo’s campaign. Then again, my calculations call for her to get 13% on the logistics curve, which allowing for population growth (world pop has DOUBLED since we and the pill halved the second derivative) is 27 million votes. 
October 20, reply to LP Canada: Dear Coreen, 1. I am in Brazil and cannot collect signatures for Canada 2. Your people told me it’s illegal for me to send money, and I haven’t much in any case. 
Oct 30 to Joe Bishop-Henchman: Dear Sleepy Joe, You STILL don’t get it. You imagine we are an employment service for politicians, rather than a freedom shield that keeps bad laws from killing people and wrecking the economy. UNEMPLOYED politicians—the ba*stards voters are able to turn out thanks to our spoiler votes—are the ones who will convince the Looter National Committees to change platform planks and repeal cruel laws. Winning is getting enough spoiler votes to make looters lose and change their lawsWinning is increasing freedom, NOT political jobs for the boys. We WIN most elections. Getting Libertarians elected is good, and will hasten the process, but how many Prohibition Party politicians are in office right now? All kinds of substances are illegal. When was the last time you saw a Socialist Party officeholder? All kinds of taxes are still collected and regulations extorted. Their principles survived the parties that acted as vectors. They have NOBODY in office, yet their victory—getting their planks enacted as law—persists. 
November 3 election day in Travis County, Spike “Beethead” Cohen dragged Jo Jorgensen’s vote total to the LOWEST for any of the Libertarians on the ballot. 

Having a communist anarchist running mate put Jo Jorgensen in LAST place

Oh, and that was when we STILL HAD Libertarians on ballots in 50 States! 

ONE communist anarchist candidate cost us ballot access in 20 states!

Close Elections

Nixon claims vote fraud! (link)

The recent mud wrestling match between Republican National Socialists and Democratic International Socialists is not really all that unusual. Sixty years ago, for example, Richard Milhous Nixon, a Quaker prohibitionist like Herbert Clark Hoover, ran to the courts in Austin Texas claiming he’d been robbed in the election.(link)

This, incidentally, is the same Austin Texas in which a few days ago 27% of the entire population, men, women, children and babies, voted for at least one Libertarian party candidate. Most of these were down-ballot candidates.(link) Jo Jorgensen’s presidential campaign was burdened with the albatross of a communist anarchist running mate.(link) Consequently, the loser in the presidential election was the Libertarian party, thanks to that particular candidate and vote-repelling changes made to the platform after 2016. Libertarians should have had approximately 9 to 12 million votes this election, based on population growth and past performance. Instead, all of our gains in recent presidential elections went down the toilet.

Libertarian National Committee Policymakers, 2020

Republicans, on the other hand, appeared to be doing as well as in 2016 with unchanged platform – until the last week of October. That was when Sen. Lindsey Graham–elected back when Democrats were eagerly signing no-knock warrants over marijuana–described Judge Amy Coney Barrett as “unashamedly pro-life.” What this meant in plain English is that Republicans hoped their new Supreme Court judge would vote to send men with guns to kick in the doors of women’s birth control clinics.(linkWomen voters understood this perfectly.

World population is increasing by over 78,000 people a day. Part of this increase is the result of coercion of women and doctors, as in communist Romania during the dictatorship of Nicolae Ceausescu. Lindsey Graham’s statement was greeted by the Democratic and socialist press with whoops of joy, and included in news videos as often as possible.(link) (link) (link) American women began to worry about the prospect of being subjected to Comstockism of the sort Irish women voters recently repealed after 35 years of oppression.(link)

A Republican-style ban on birth control was imposed there back when Ronald Reagan, Pope John Paul and Nicolae Ceausescu were unashamedly opposed to the idea of women having individual rights. They lobbied for Amending the U.S. Constitution the way the Constitution of Ireland was amended in 1983. So who could the women voters turn to? Certainly not the Libertarian party!

Nixon with dictator Nicolae Ceaususcu

True, The Supreme Court in 1973 copied the Libertarian party’s 1972 birth control plank shortly after the Libertarian party’s vice presidential candidate gained the first electoral vote ever cast for a woman in US history.(link) This upended the partnership between the Romanian Communist Party and the American Republican Party for the suppression of individual rights. Clarence Thomas promptly set to work helping Rehnquist overturn that decision won by women lawyers from Austin Texas in 1973.

Warren Commission investigator Ford with Nixon & Ceausescu

That LP plank survived the 1974 and 1976 campaigns as “We further support the repeal of all laws restricting voluntary birth control or the right of the woman to make a personal moral choice regarding the termination of pregnancy.” In 1984, however, the following was inserted: “However, we also oppose all tax funding for abortions.”(link) That same platform declared “We also call for the repeal of all medical licensing laws, which have raised medical costs while creating a government-imposed monopoly of doctors and hospitals.” In exchange for lying under oath to legitimize the pseudoscience used to justify prohibition laws, physicians, pharmacists and their lobbyists have, since 1914, legally gained cartel privileges and a license to fix prices making medical services unaffordable for most individuals.(link

That same 1984 LP platform declared against requiring identification of persons crossing the border into the United States. Suddenly, the Libertarian party chose to help the tax funded government, pharma and medical cartels to implement the policies of Republican televangelists instead of defending the individual rights of women. The Democratic Party’s response to the cartels was Soviet style nationalization of healthcare, which women voters deemed preferable to Libertarian cowardice in the face of Republican fanaticism. 

Trump was elected in 2016 after promising no criminal charges against women for birth control. Lindsey Graham’s characterization of the Supreme Court nominee as a zealot eager to erase the first three words of the 14th Amendment was the likely cause of the Trump’s defeat. Just as damaging to all recent progress toward increasing the number of law-changing libertarian spoiler votes was the 2018 Libertarian platform promise to import Saracen berserkers and infected herds of cattle across the border uninspected.(link) This did away with our 328% growth on the 2016 platform.

LP votes before Open Borders plank and Communist Anarchist for VP

The zealot wing of Trump’s power base now shrieks “we wuz robbed” the way Nixon supporters did in 1960. After Pres. Kennedy enforced a Supreme Court decision eliminating racial segregation from government schools, a bullet went through the president’s throat in the same horizontal plane as the railroad tracks curving around Dealey Plaza. The President was shot a second time, and died at Parkland Hospital as former vice president Richard Nixon boarded a plane leaving Dallas.

Hedging Election Bets

Zerohedge was de-planked by Twit Committee on Un-Chinese Activities

Everyone–the entire Nixon-law-subsidized looter media and even the bookies– said Hillary’s party would win and force us to keep phone-blocking telehasslers shoving socialized health insurance night and day.  Why didn’t it happen? One solution comes to mind. 

You know how hedging works. You buy a futures contract in X and another one in Y to offset possible losses from drought, strikes and whatnot. I suspect the GOP is using the Nixon-subsidized media to shriek Trump is losing in hopes of a sandbagging effect based on the Social Pressure theory of 1955. Televangelists whose spoiler votes Republicans fear predictably shriek Armageddon and Antichrist to rally the Faithful to Stand against the commie Satan–or be scythed by fanatical spoiler votes cast instead for the Prohibition Party. Now, here comes the good part.

Since Nixon bought them in 1971, the media are known panderers. Suppose I wanted Trump’s party to win. I would cultivate gloating predictions of Kamala’s victory, let those soak into the betting odds by pari-mutuel (not actuarial) math. I’d then send my chauffeur to deliver $10,000 to the Trump campaign, and bet another $20,000 that Trump will lose. This is hedging.

If The Don wins, I’m out $30,000 but am owed favors from the mixed-economy winners; favors worth infinitely more. If The Don loses, Irish bookies pay me back $28,888, so I make back nearly 9 thousand over what I risked even though the candidate I backed by donating ten grand didn’t win.(link)

I’d get back almost all of my large donation to Boss Trump, but could still brag to Daddy Warbucks that I gave ten grand. Gamblers and market investors understand all this with the clarity necessary to confidently put that kind of money on the line. 

The looters won’t let me vote by mail, but I have sent donations to the Dallas LP and a couple of Libertarian candidates. I would gladly bet on this election and recoup my donations to the LP. For Libertarians this is a free rider opportunity not to be missed. It’s like Mr Chekov said on Star Trek: “Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me!”

The Dems already copied Libertarian repeal verbiage and discarded Biden’s shoot-the-kids prohibitionism, but I still expect the Dems to lose based on their promise to make electricity as unaffordable as it is in North Korea. Do you see now why looter legislators go to so much trouble to outlaw betting?  

Incidentally, Paddypower now has a cap on how much you can bet on Trump. This means the bookies are themselves hedging their losses against another Boss Trump victory.

This is your 12th chance to vote Libertarian or sanction coercion and cops shooting kids. Which will it be? 

Make your vote MATTER for a change! Listen to what our opponents say about each other and remember all that at the ballot box.

The Looter Kleptocracy has evidently pressured media companies such as WordPress to make blogging as difficult as possible before the election. Twelve million libertarian votes would go a long way toward removing new impediments to blogging and restoring the usual formatting tools.

Travis County Tax Con

If you receive a “Government Here to Help You” letter 
from the Travis County tax assessor, it’s a trap. 

Travis County Texas homeowners should beware the Travis Central Appraisal District bearing gifts. Their form letter tells you that because you are a (choose one or more) Disabled Vet, Over 65, Homestead resident (…) they have altruistically taken it upon themselves to help you by adding an exemption to limit the taxes they tear out of your hide.(link) The letter brags that: 

As is permitted by the Property Tax Code… the Over 65 exemption has been automatically added…

This looks like bureaucrats trying to help you out, right? You breathe a sigh of relief and toss it aside, right? WRONG! ERRONEOUS! DANGER! These 11 bureaucrats and their minions are defrauding the elderly in hopes of bleeding off your Social Security paybacks. 

If your property is rented out and they juggle the paperwork to list you as claiming an over 65 exemption, this makes YOU guilty of trying to defraud THEM. Unless, of course, you realize that the extra legalese requires you to notice that they are setting you up for extortion. You would then call and wait on hold to plead with a bureaucrat and fill out a Request To Cancel Exemption form to try to undo the damage. Usually, it’s too late. The passive voice verbiage at the bottom snaps the trap on your checkbook: 

If the Chief Appraiser discovers that an exemption that is not required to be claimed annually has been erroneously allowed in any of the five preceding years, the chief appraiser shall add the property or appraised value that was erroneously exempted for each year to the appraisal roll as provided by Section 25.21 of this code for other property that escapes taxation. 

See that? They take it upon themselves to frame you for trying to gyp them out of “their” money, then send men with guns to confiscate the home unless you fork over an extra five thousand dollars or so right away quicklike.  So how does this affect the renters, who may have elected the politicians who appointed the looters springing the trap? 

Government frames, entraps and robs homeowner
so where is that money going to come from?

One would hope renters will have sense enough to vote against all bond issuance proposals and for all Libertarian candidates. Republican and Democrat candidates are all alike. The proof of this is that there is typically only a tiny percentage of the vote difference between them.

Voting Libertarian exploits the narrowness of difference as leverage to make their parties import Libertarian policies. If GOP candidate Eichmann loses to DEM candidate Lenin, you can bet that by next election the “I Like Eich” crowd will have a more hippie-friendly platform promising real tax reduction. 

NOW do you see how libertarian votes cause looter kleptocracy parties to change their platforms and laws? Make your vote MATTER for a change!
