Biden on Prohibition, 1986

September 27, 1986 CONGRESSIONAL RECORD – SENATE (Bayes page number) S 13973 (link)
Mr. BIDEN… These vitally important programs will now go unfunded if this amendment is not adopted. The TASC Program was designed as a response to a rapidly increasing proper crime rate caused, in significant part, by drug offenders. We all know why that is. The fact of the matter is that, unless you happen to be a multimillionaire or have access to a bank, if you have a drug habit, it is an expensive habit. And there is no doubt in anyone’s mind why there is so much street crime. Somewhere on the order of 50% of all the street crime in America is attributable to drug abuse. That is, when someone wants to go buy the cocaine or go buy the heroin or go buy the marijuana, they crack someone over the top of the head, take their wallet, take their purse, and half the time they are under the influence at the time. I see my colleague from Arizona standing, I am happy to yield to him.

Mr. GOLDWATER. I was interested in what the Sen. had to say about the cost of the dope habit. And I recall – I may be wrong – but I think I recall that England at one time sold narcotics at drugstores without prescriptions or anything else. I have often wondered – not facetiously – whether that might not be a cure in our country. They are going to kill themselves eventually. Let them do it cheap.

Mr. BIDEN. Well, you know, Mr. President, we sometimes smile about that, but the Senator from Arizona has raised a question that a number of very, very thoughtful and intelligent people have raised, and that is the argument that has been underway for some time in this country along the following lines: If, in fact, we not only have spawned a multibillion-dollar industry – over $110 billion a year and profits to illegal syndicates and individuals, not unlike the days of prohibition – in light of that fact and coupled with the fact that 50% of the crime on the street, violent crime, is attributable to a junky going out and forcibly wresting from a citizen their dollars and their cents and their money and in the process, many times, killing, maiming, or at least abusing them; and the fact that over 50% of the burglaries in America, the reason why people break and enter into homes is in order to pay for their drug habit – they steal your television, sell your television, and by the heroin – they say. “Well, if that is the case, why don’t we just legalize it?”

Now, it sounds funny, but look at it for a moment. If, in fact, drugs were legalized, that any heroin addict could walk into a clinic and get heroin, then the need to go out and mug my mother in the parking lot of the Acme is diminished, because they do not need the money in her purse. And also those major crime syndicates, which flourish and feed off society, would have their pocketbooks emptied very rapidly because people would not be paying for it. So it is not a crazy idea.

But I would say to my friend from Arizona, who is in fact one of the true civil libertarians in this country – and I mean that sincerely – the answer is one that will not come to him is one that is unexpected and one that his philosophy, understandably, will find somewhat difficult. It is that big brother made a judgment that, in fact, we not only should protect those addicts and junkies who will kill themselves – the average age, for example, of a heroin addict, the life expectancy is about 28 years of age. They die by then not because they are shot, by the police as they are jumping barriers, but because they overdose on heroin. They, in fact, kill themselves with the drug. And that is why the average life expectance of a drug user is relatively low.So we, as a society, have made the judgment, which I happend to subscribe to, that we should, in fact, protect our citizens even those who are inflicting this sin upon themselves.

When did the Crash arrive with a Depression?

The second reason is that as a people it seems to me, I say to my friend from Arizona, the government of the United States should not knowingly condone something they have no doubt about the effect of the use of. In other words, even though we would diminish, I have no doubt, diminish crime, and we would diminish the size of the syndicates, it seems to me, I say to my friend from Arizona, we would be making such a statement about the morality of this country that it is something we could not live with, that if we as a country were to conclude that notwithstanding the fact we could reduce crime, the price at which we would reduce it would be to legalize something that is patently immoral on its face, and legalize something that in fact we know will result in the death of thousands and thousands of American. Although on balance the argument can be made we probably would have less crime, and we would have less of a pernicious impact on the part of organized crime, and we have as a society opted not to do that. As usual – and I am not being solicitous – my friend from Arizona not only has the insight to raise the tough questions, but has the courage to raise them.

Quite frankly, as my colleague from Arizona knows, most people would not even want to raise that question for fear that the political opposition would run around saying, “Charlie Smith is for heroin, and Charlie Smith is for such and such.” We need more of that kind of input into this question. I compliment my colleague. I do not ask him to accept the answer other than to acknowledge that it is the reason why we have chosen not to go that route.

Mr. GOLDWATER. I am quitting politics. So I can accept the Senator’s answer. He has satisfied me.

By spewing forth such absurd lies couched in the unvarnished superstition and strutting ignorance that “we” must be forced at gunpoint to send police to shoot kids over plant leaves, Biden revealed his true colors. Today, plain thermometer readings show no increase. Yet this doddering blowhard expects your sanction to be thrust back into the Dark Ages of answers that cannot be questioned.(link) If Big Brother, after listening to lobbyists, chooses to send men with guns out to shoot kids and confiscate bank accounts until the economy again crashes into a depression, it was a good time for Goldwater to retire.

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.

This is your 12th opportunity

What (not who) will you vote for?

 In 1840 your male vote for Northern Democrats said “rob me;” for Whigs said “raise import tariffs,” and for Southern Dems said “rape black women and beat the men to death.” Your vote said one or the other

In 1860 there were no more Federalists or Whigs, only high-tariff spenders on improvement and primitive rapists and bulliers of slaves.  Your male vote said either “protective tariff” or “secede from the monopolistic high-tariff Customs Union.”

In 1880 your male vote could say “arrest, tax and rob people over whiskey and beer” and “bully them for Jesus,” or “bring back White Supremacy,” or “tax and rob people for communism.” That was the third-party alternative. 

In 1900 your male vote could say “make war, raise tariffs and ban liquor and drugs,” or “White Supremacy but no sumptuary laws,” or “tax and rob people for communism.” All three alternatives required coercion.

In 1920 your vote could say “White Supremacy and sumptuary laws” or “sumptuary taxes, confiscation and imprisonment,” or “tax and rob people for communism.” All three alternatives required the initiation of force.

FINALLY in 1972 your vote could say “White Supremacy and sumptuary laws” or  “conscription, bombing, fascism and Comstockism,” or “replace the initiation of force with freedom and individual rights for women!” For the first time ever, spoiler clout leverage worked in favor of freedom and against coercion at gunpoint. The LP got under 4000 presidential votes then, and over 4.5 million in 2016. That’s an increase of a factor of 1100 over the course of 44 years in which the world population doubled.

Now that we still have such a clean cut alternative, in 2020 you may for the 12th time choose one of 3 alternatives on the ballot in every state: You may vote to “endorse Nixon fascism,” or “endorse Eurasian communism” or “increase freedom by reducing coercion!” Two of these choices are the same as asking to be whipped, paddled and humiliated. Only one tells politicians that you have enough dignity to recognize and enforce your own individual rights and the rights of others. 

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

Jane Fonda, Scientist Impersonator


Hanoi Jane cannot let go of straws grasped in Soviet efforts to make energy illegal and disarm the USA into surrender to the nearest communist dictatorship. Every single professional liar and scientist impersonator I have tracked since 1977 has shifted from predicting nuclear winter, to non-communist reactor doomsday, to misanthropic global warmunism–without a single exception. 

But here you have a dizzy actress entirely incapable of differentiating a constant, fatuously reporting scientific credentials and capacity as fabricated as the hysteria she has fanned. Maybe in another 40 years we’ll see videos of Titanic Boy and the Bourne Impersonation actor claiming their place among scientists who never finished high school.

Economic Power v Political

Remember in physics how force x distance is Work? And the rate at which the work is done is Power?

John Hospers, the first Libertarian Party candidate for President, then an organizer of the Libertarian Defense Caucus gave a definition of economic power in his book Libertarianism (link)

Economic power is simply the right under freedom to refuse to make an exchange.

Ayn Rand defined it thus: 

It is the power to produce and to trade what one has produced.

She went on to explain that: 

Political power is exercised by means of a negative, by the threat of punishment, injury, imprisonment, destruction. 

In a free society, economic power is like the generation of electricity. It therefore follows, as night follows day, that the generation of electric power draws the boiling wrath of all sensitive, concerned and aware totalitarians, who imagine it will exterminate mankind, cause Misanthropic Global Warming Climate Change Sharknados as predicted by 1961 Soviet propaganda.

To politicians and weapons designers, political power is the rate at which disobedient citizens or foreign aggressors (or both) can be transformed into cadavers. It is the line integral of harmful and deadly force over whatever distance is needed within a timeframe important to them.

So next time you cast a vote, look at the ballot and notice that of the three options you have, only Libertarian Party candidate Jo Jorgensen offers you the opportunity to vote AGAINST the initiation of deadly force required by the increase of political power. That same option enables you to vote FOR the increase in freedom that means the same thing as the reduction of coercive force. It also means an economy less threatened by prohibitionist asset-forfeiture crashes, collapses and Depressions.

Hockey stick for Libertarians!

Libertarian vote share after Bush asset-forfeiture crash

THIS is the either-or. The Republicans and Democrats BOTH want your sanction to beat the other looter so they can rob and coerce you with less interference. Only by voting Libertarian can you go on the historical record and figure in important statistical curve plots as being FOR the increase of freedom and AGAINST coercion.

This is the ethical decision, the choice between right and wrong, now placed before you. Germans made the wrong choice in 1933 by voting for a politician. The Japanese, Russians and Italians made similar mistakes in their choice of men while ignoring the laws of physics and ethical distinctions popular candidates urged them to ignore.

Altruistic Climate Arson

Open Borders Burn Baby Burn!

Read the original (link)

Would a self-sacrificing woke altruist toss a handful of burning straw into a forest to wake people up and Save The Planet? The job is easy… no annoying surveillance cameras to provide embarrassing evidence, and there are thousands of instances of similar arson going on right now within cities bristling with cameras. West Coast newspapers are now trying to avoid the subject and whine at how elected officials avoid being looted by the IRS.(link)

Use your Chinese computer to search for “forest arson” and screen after screen fills up with “climate arson nonsense,” “forest arson rumors,” and innuendo branding as loony anyone able to think for a minute that the people who deliberately set fire to stores to send a political message would ever dream of torching a single bough of one of Joyce Kilmer’s trees. (link)

The 1988 forest torchings torchings in Israel coincided with a sharp upswing in forest firebuggery in California, Oregon and Washington–States so loaded down with Asians that they insisted on a Chinese Exclusion Law back in 1882–renewed in 1893. The communist system in Europe was collapsing in 1988, with people fleeing by hundreds of thousands to escape totalitarian altruism. It’s a rare communist anarchist zealot who would pass up the chance to make Fearless Leader look good by amplifying terror of Misanthropic Climate Warmunism. But China itself has its own mysterious forest fires blazing, suggesting that two can play.  “Open Borders” rhetoric inviting uninspected entry is one of the chinks in Uncle Sam’s territorial jurisdiction that invite invasion by foreign commandos and facilitate arson by miscreants within.(link

But that’s crazy talk. “Sane” talk is Assistant Drug Czar Joe Biden bawling that Boss Trump is engaging in “climate arson.” Libertarian voters are witnessing the failure of a Kleptocracy so enraged by it’s own Janus-faced other half that it will deliberately burn cities and forests and shoot people in the back in a bid for more political power with which to wield added harmful and deadly coercive force. Voting Libertarian is voting against aggression. (link)

The Forgotten Man, 2020

Drug Czar Jim Carroll

Forgotten man in Opposition to Legalization and Public Awareness–The Drug Czar

William Graham Sumner wrote the original Forgotten Man essay back in 1883, and produced several versions. He explained that whenever altruists A and B get together to decide what C (Citizen) shall be forced at gunpoint to do for D (Destitute). C is the Forgotten Man in the equation, the man coerced into footing the bill.(link) This Citizen was in 1883 the Forgotten Man whose interests and happiness were entirely overlooked and ignored. Franklin Roosevelt tried to recast the scenario with Destitute–the victim of prohibition-induced economic collapse–as the Forgotten Man, but the ploy never did replace Sumner’s original–namely you, dear Reader. 

Just recently we’ve had to acknowledge a spate of murders committed by lazy, out-of-shape, union-collectivized policemen. Typically the victims are brown people. Eric Garner was suspected of letting people buy single cigarettes to allay cravings instead of loading up with sealed packs of habit-forming, Polonium-transmitting excise-generating drugs. He was gang-lynched by First Responders™. Philando Castile was murdered in his car with child and ladyfriend because Minesota First Responder™ Jeronimo Yanez imagined he smelled hemp–the stuff upon which the Bill of Rights is printed.

The Forgotten Quaker Warmonger

War On Drugs, Anti-Libertarian Law, bombing of children 1971

Atlanta cops woke a man up and shot him in the back. A black policewoman was no-knocked and riddled with bullets in her bed because Louisville politicians signed prohibitionist zealot orders to raid her apartment. The same happened to an elderly couple in Houston on orders no less fraudulent. And just the other day a brave First Responder™ shot an unarmed man in the back seven times for no good reason. Another 1009 people were snuffed out this year, always on orders from Democratic and Republican Party zealots imagining plant leaves to be avatars of Satan. No libertarian Party elected official ever issued such orders.(link)

And murder you with total immunity from prosecution

And shoot you dead in bed, and loot your belongings

Like Newton’s Second Law–the one with the equal but opposite reaction force–persons terrorized by politicians using arbitrary police as hired killers have taken to attacking police no less arbitrarily and just as violently in places like Los Angeles and Phoenix, Maryland, Washington and Oregon prompting a political officeholder to remark: 

“Thus far this year, 74 law enforcement officers have been killed in the line of duty in the United States of America,” he added. “Unfortunately, I don’t hear a lot of people speak to that.”

Well listen up. In 2020 America, entirely controlled by the East German Democratic and God’s Own Prohibitionist soft machines, altruists A and B issue orders for C (Cops) to murder D (Drug suspect), mostly brown and youthful. As inevitably as night follows day, fake news media hold microphones into which red-faced police union goons fume and sputter over the “senseless and cowardly” treatment of maimed and murdered officers–protected, of course from civil and criminal liability by the sort of “qualified immunity” that did not save Christian National Socialists from the gibbet at the Nuremberg trials. Their victims need not even be charged under Reagan-Bush-Biden Civil Asset Forfeiture, and may be shot like dogs with perfect impunity on any fanciful pretext thanks to the Asset Forfeitures Amendment Act of 1986 as amended in 1988.(link)

The usual link to the text of this law–“the” law which caused the Crashes and recessions of 1987 and 2008, and the Flash Crashes of 2010 and 2015–has been interdicted by looters in protest against a competing gang of looters.(link) See for yourself. (link) They call the censorship a “hiatus.” I was expecting this, so here’s a link to the full searchable text of the law with errors in the original preserved.(link)

The big difference today is that the Forgotten Man is no longer C, the angry Citizen or remorseless Cop on the beat. The perpetrators unnamed, unmentioned and unquestioned are the Politician, the Preacher, The Bureaucrat, the Prosecutor and the Judge who in the roles of A and B got together to have people murdered as “no-nonsense” examples. They are murdered to please “shall not be questioned” Legislators and Lobbyists whose pseudoscientific votes declare War on plant leaves feared as avatars of Satan. Voters aid and abet this connivance out of fear of social pressure.(link)

Plant leaves are incapable of surrendering, but the War proposition still makes sense to looters granted immunity from even being mentioned in connection with the results of their weaponized acquisitive altruism.  Today’s Forgotten Man is the Politician and Bureaucrat of the mixed-economy Political State soft machine. These are the deadly people I vote against; I vote Libertarian.(link)

These hidden persuaders–the Politician, the Preacher, the Prosecutor and the Judge–are never mentioned in the aftermath for the same reason Libertarian Party candidates are never mentioned. You wouldn’t want voters to think too clearly about the deeds their votes ordered done by the better people who know what’s good for the riff-raff.(link

Chinese Communivirus weapon

 

Watch the latest video at foxnews.com

 

The communivirus release walks and quacks like a biological weapons attack on the relatively free world. As the State of Missouri sues the Chinese Communist party(link), a real Chinese scientist has finally stepped up to the plate and is revealing what she knows about the deliberate tailoring and release of this modified virus weapon. The same sort of corporate cowardice that abetted the crippling of the U.S. nuclear energy industry now seeks to shut her up. THIS is one of the protesters the Libertarian Party should be supporting–not Jim Jones socialist racial collectivism.(link

I fully expect–and will bet money–that EVERY climate “science” impersonator, including Jane Fonda (link)–will absolutely deny the virologist’s report and call the lady a liar while struggling to keep a straight face. Since 1977 I have followed the documendacities and lies spread by scientist impersonators denying that nuclear electricity plants produce more Gigawatt-hours of electrical current per injury, death or disability than ANY other electrical energy production method.(link) This means that every time superstitious fears are invoked to block a reactor, that act creates a health hazard by forcing folks to use some more hazardous plant or freeze in the dark.(link) Many people are injured by this dishonest maneuvering, whereas life expectancy is increased whenever nuclear engineers are free to do their work unmolested.  

Communist coercion loose in the banking system

FATF President 2020

Keep in mind that the Financial Action Task Force–a predatory mechanism designed to cripple economic development–is now completely under the control of the Communist Party of China. The crash in February occurred during that body’s Paris meeting. 

Nothing to see here folks...

FATF meets in Paris, economic collapse

 After witnessing 43 years of plausible deniability in sabotage by agents of the looter persuasion, this virologist’s revelation comes not as a surprise, but as a long-awaited act of courage by someone with the technical competence and courage to expose treachery. Jo Nova is also reporting on this new information. (link) and (link)

Wasted Votes defeating Boss Trump

The original post was treacherously destroyed, so It must have been worth rebuilding. If your post enabling libertarian votes disappears in a fog of “unexpected block encountered,” report it to me using the contact form below, willya?

Trump did an interview on Fox mentioning the LP getting 4.5% of the vote in 2016, then claiming us as [get this!] Republicans. But instead of legalizing acid and weed and stopping the individual income tax, he whined that he was “somewhat” libertarian and that we were wasting our votes on an anti-aggression platform. Republicans in Congress (the ones who nominated Bush and Mitt Romney) are more concerned with bullying pregnant girls, shooting youths and robbing assets over plant leaves. The real question is, can Trump survive the superstitious cowardice of the Republican Party?

Here is the part elided from the Youtube version: 

They always talk about Jill Stein. Jill Stein took, what? Half a percent? Well, I have a Libertarian—I’m somewhat libertarian I have to be honest with you, Rand Paul will tell you that — I have a Libertarian candidate on last time that got, what? Four and a half or so percent?  Those are all Republican voters. They’re wasting their vote, because — they have to vote for us. –Trump

“Us” Paleface? 

The Libertarian Party platform takes 30 minutes to read at LP.org–or listen to as a podcast. Here it is in Brazilian Portuguese: (link)

Legacy representative democracy means entrenched politicians who vote for Prohibition Party planks (shooting kids over plants, bullying pregnant girls), Communist & Econazi Party planks (more taxes and regulations, disarm and surrender, no nukes, ban electric power). Our law-changing spoiler votes change looter priorities by defeating the coercive creeps.(link) Let them try to deploy murderers and abet robbers and prohibitionists after they lose that hand in the till.(link)

God’s Own Prohibitionists prefer Drug Czarism to winning, Their efforts go into laws shooting kids and dogs, and setting up cartel dictatorships abroad to rob and murder the citizens of banana republics–like the Reagan-Bush-Biden Law.(link) These are things the Kleptocracy copied from our competitors–the Prohibition Party that wrecked the economy (link) and the Fabian communist parties that slowly rot the economy while collaborating with foreign dictatorships.(link)

The Libertarian platform has been clear for 48 years.(link) Assistant Drug Czar Biden is likewise a child-shooting, dog-killing, asset forfeiture prohibitionist beholden to communist China. Biden’s Red China has recently executed several Canadians for “drugs.”(link) This is the same Red China from which the deadly plague has wafted worldwide since late 2019. Biden’s China exports plagues and narcotics and inflicts the death penalty for 68 crimes, 44 of which are victimless. Good government gradually elbows aside entrenched, outdated and dangerous monarchies and kleptocracies incapable of grasping reality and legalizing freedom. 

Political replacement curve

Fisher-Pry replacement curve on semi-log graph. Out with monarchy, czars and socialism, in with democracy

This same curve fitting technique shows how the Libertarian vote share is inexorably increasing at an accelerating rate.

Hockey stick for Libertarians!

If you support the force-initiating looter kleptocracy, know that Libertarian spoiler votes will continue beat the bloody snot out of your candidates’ campaigns until you copy our planks. The American Liberal Party made the same offer in 1931.(link) Herbert Hoover wanted the Republican party to adopt a repeal plank in 1932. Instead, National Socialist Republicans lost five elections in a row–and a war.

Pure Food Law Recession

Kill the tax-dodgers

1907 amendment: alcohol excise tax dodgers sentenced to death or blindness without a trial (link)

 A Reason Magazine article on the disputed definition of milk brought to mind the facts behind the Panic of 1907. (link)

The Pure Food Law passed in 1906, three years after the Silent Panic brought on by a Chinese boycott of American products. The boycott–three years after the Boxer Rebellion failed to exclude foreign morphine and needles from prohibitionist China–got the attention of U.S. industrialists and bankers and the mixed-economy politicians they owned and controlled. British baby syrup had Poison, Morphine written on the labels, and that made them comparatively honest and straightforward by Chinese standards. The Pure Food law only became enforceable in 1907, the Year of the Panic. This was the year of a Great Awakening in China, as Draconian measures were afoot in a War on Poppies. 

Theodore Roosevelt’s inherited fortune and guilt came from American participation in selling opium in China. Once promoted by assassination to the Presidency, the former Police Commissioner who had served the Comstockers and Anti-Vice societies as muscle to enforce Sunday closing of New York Saloons set out to put the Teeth into Temperance. Industrial alcohol would be excise-tax-free, provided poison were added to sicken, blind and/or kill any who drink it.

Bureau of Chemistry guru Wiley chose a pharmacopoeia definition of whiskey and wrote a Decision to make it binding.  Countering government chemist Wiley, Attorney‑General Bonaparte differed as to the Revealed definition of “whiskey” and offered his own alternatives: 

The following seem to me appropriate specimen brands or labels for (1) “straight” whisky/whiskey, (2) a mixture of two or more “straight” whiskies, (3) a mixture of “straight” whisky/whiskey and ethyl alcohol, and (4) ethyl alcohol flavored and colored so as to taste, smell, and look like whisky/whiskey.
(1) Semper Idem Whisky/whiskey: A pure, straight whisky/whiskey mellowed by age.
(2) E Pluribus Unum Whisky/whiskey: A blend of pure, straight whiskies with all the merits of each.
(3) Modern Improved Whisky/whiskey: A compound of pure grain distillates, mellow and free from harmful impurities.
(4) Something Better than Whisky/whiskey: An imitation under the pure food law, free from fusel oil and other impurities.  (Other suggestions primly censored as politically unwoke.)

The gauntlet was flung, the challenge accepted, and so began one of many parallel legal battles whose first casualty would be the American banking system and economy.

Republican Election Fraud 1864

WE WUZ ROBBED!

Articles on same page of Hartford Weekly Times 19NOV1864 (link)

America was at war over the same tariff policies that brought her to the brink during the Nullification Crisis. The Morrill tariff enacted after Lincoln’s election was no less abominable and prompted Texas militias to seize federal armories. This second Tariff of Abominations was signed by President Buchanan on March 2, 1861, two days before Lincoln’s Inauguration. Did none of your “educators” mention this detail?

A similar bomb was planted on Herbert Hoover 58 years later. The “Increased Penalties Act” of 1929 demanded five years in prison and a fine equivalent to 14 pounds of gold for Beelzebub’s Beer and The Demon Rum. Its enforcement using the new Manifesto capitation tax wrecked the stock markets and fractional-reserve banking system and put an end to Republican Administrations for 20 years. (see book below)

But politics continued and Civil War Democrats split into Peace Democrats, who wanted to sue for peace, and War Democrats, who believed in fighting it out to enforce “the” laws, but not for the object of abolishing slavery. This faction also voted for McClellan. Both DEM factions supported McClellan, but “the” laws meant the Fugitive Slave law to one faction and the protective tariff to the other. Here is another snapshot of that election: 

WE WUZ ROBBED!

There were two types of oaths, one was administered to voters. The other was the pauper’s oath–a formal declaration by a person that he is destitute and incapable of self-support. This was required in certain states to be eligible for public relief. Such an oath normally operated to deprive someone of the vote.

Today’s government school system harps on slavery, yet primly elides mention of the antebellum sexual abuse to which the women were subjected. Harriet Beecher Stowe dared bring this up–instead of mentioning the protective tariff. Similar strategy prevents today’s Kleptocracy historians from mentioning the causal connections between Prohibition and The Crash, but inducing ignorance in no way changes the facts. Orwell warned that lying about such things eventually backfires when the truth leaks out.(link)

Then, as now, both entrenched parties were soft machines in a kleptocracy dedicated to the initiation of force, rather than the defense of individual rights. Campaigns, as now, featured all the dignity and seemliness of two looters fighting over a bottle of gin snatched from a smashed liquor store window. A hand in the till and another confiscating your assets over plant leaves are high priorities to both doting factions. Both legacy looter parties want to continue “penetrating” weaker neighbors urging shoot-first repression of recreational plant leaf derivative markets. Nevermind that exporting prohibitionist policies PREVENTS those countries from developing functional economies. 

The other priority shared by both entrenched parties is meddlesome invasion and bombing of distant primitive villages in some sort of religious war designed to bring terrorist retaliation. The only leveraged way to clearly say NO to all these dishonest and murderous policies is to vote for libertarian candidates in November–especially State and County LP candidates. 

But let’s be fair. Listen to what our adversaries say about each other before you choose LIBertarian on the ballot.
