Electoral Spoiler Votes, 1968

Ku-klux Klanbake

Read the original article

Judge Roy is as clearly a whack job as George Wallace, so no need to belabor the point. To voters residing in Alabama, the much more pressing concern is: what candidates can be found to run on a libertarian platform as the opposition? Much of what is wrong in Dixieland is the lingering effect of George Wallace’s candidacy and the electoral spoiler votes it gained among–whatever their faults–fiscally conservative low-tariff states. Offering LP candidates as an alternative wields more law-changing clout than joining the character-assassination frenzy endemic to kleptocracy political races.

JFK had more than his character assassinated, but his refusal to enslave youth as cannon-fodder for a takeover of the French opium regie in Cochin-China set an example for the world.  His coldly calculated murder set These States back several decades and many lives. As witness, here is a graph showing how the organized criminal gang that killed JFK is currently meddling with the former British opium regie in Afghanistan. Republican protectionism favoring stupefacient dope has fostered an epidemic of fatal overdoses.

But the Libertarian Party had changed national jurisprudence by 1973. Tonie Nathan and John Hospers’ electoral vote prompted the Supreme Court to add the Libertarian Platform plank on women’s individual rights to its Roe v. Wade decision by early 1973. By the time Nixon was facing impeachment charges, military conscription was trying its best to look inconspicuous. But it’s still there, just waiting to be reactivated.

Libertarians need to explain that “free trade” means the exact same revenue only tariff that financed all government expenditures until the second Tariff of Abominations written by Justin S. Morrill passed shortly after Lincoln was elected. Another mischaracterization is calling the LP migration plank “open borders,” The LP supports excluding dangerous people from These States, but does not support another Berlin Wall.

What the LP does not need is more goofy platform planks. The Texas Libertarian Party platform is a dog’s breakfast of pusillanimous pettifoggery much more liable to frighten than reassure voters. The national party platform experimenting with communist anarchism approaches to the death sentence is another example of bad platform drafting. Non-libertarians read it and imagine the idea is to hire mercenaries to go around killing criminals. Libertarians see in it higher taxes to support folks like Robert Dear in lifetime warmth and comfort. The numbskull experiment of 1990–infiltrators waving a red flag to anger religious conservatives in exchange for NO VOTES whatsoever–is not the sort of thing that bears repeating.

Tony Heller Wrecked my Theory

I follow a blog by an electrical engineer who writes code and graphs data. The delightful part is that the unaltered data graphs he produces do not agree with theories pompously put forth by Doomsday Cassandras. In fact, Tony Heller takes on the entire panoply of Millerite doomcrying by unemployable ex-scientists whose theories invariably require the initiation of force. And he does it as competently as Petr Beckmann did while still alive.

Petr Beckmann was a young electrical engineer working on the same project as physicist Arthur C. Clarke toward the end of WWII. As described in the novel “Glide Path,” with radio and radar they guided RAF bombers returning from Germany to land safely. Beckmann held a grudge against all socialist invaders of Czechoslovakia, and his delightful Access to Energy newsletter and book on nuclear safety weakened their efforts to trick Americans into disarming or crippling their own power plants. Watching RealClimateScience.com dismantle perpetrators of hoaxes is a delight.

Suddenly Heller comes up with these Zapruder frames of the Kennedy assassination showing what looks like a luminous circle. I tried, like others, to imagine they were sunlight reflecting off of fragments.  I had a personal stake in the thing not being real. After years of research on the Kennedy assassination I was working on a fiction novella requiring only two snipers. That bright dot was not at all consistent with my theory or partial manuscript, and would require rewrites and edits. Finally, the dot would not go away. It recalled another video looking northwest from the south side of Dealey Plaza in which a flash of light at the picket fence was surmised to be evidence of a shooter firing at the President from behind a flimsy fence. But my fictional theory required only two snipers. From its height, Occam and I could loftily look down theories requiring more than two assassins and scornfully dismiss that flash. But the troublesome shiny dot ruined my manuscript by introducing reasonable doubt.

How was I supposed to know that gunslingers fancied putting mercury in bullets? But people act on all sorts of wrong beliefs. Police rushed up the slope at the north end of the grassy bridge abutment, perhaps with good reason. Yes there are holes in mobster Files’ story, but none so large as the politicians’ theory that had prompted me to work out a different explanation. Reasonable doubt has now wrecked my story before it was ready to publish–luckily for me. I pity people like Gavin and Gore, whose published documendacities Mr Heller has unpityingly gored. But I can’t help noticing that none of them find fault with his arguments or dispute the unimbellished data he presents. They could show a little gratitude to someone able to correct their papers. After all Gottlob Frege had the good grace to thank Bertrand Russell for derailing his mathematical work. Unfortunately, Frege, like Gore, Gavin and wishful thinkers on the IIPC had already published their errors.

If you ever need an experienced translator of forensic reports, death certificates and autopsy results from Portuguese or Spanish, look me up. I also write fiction about politicians and such.

Looter Vote Counts

Here are reported 2016 election returns for Boulder County, Colorado, from the Longmont Times-Call. The last column was simply left blank on the assumption that most voters do not know how to add or subtract.

Voters who rely on looter press vote counts are simply kept unaware of the existence of libertarian spoiler votes. How then are they to figure out that those spoiler votes pack at least six times the law-changing clout of a vote wasted on the looter kleptocracy that newspaper serves?

Countywide Clinton Trump Libertarian?
Longmont 55.3% 33.1% 11.6%
Boulder 80.8% 10.9% 8.3%
Erie 56.8% 32% 11.2%
Lafayette 68.6% 21.2% 10.2%
Louisville 78.1% 20.7% 1.2%

It is possible that Green econazis or ku-klux Tea-partiers may have gotten some of those unreported votes. But the Libertarian Party is on the ballot in all 50 states. And it is definitely true that looter parties–the ones that rob you at gunpoint–are perfectly willing to lie, cheat and steal the vote count. The Longmont Times-Call newspaper, through its staff Writer Karen Antonacci, clearly lied about the election outcome.  Looter kleptocracy parties do it to each other all the time.

Al Franken lost the Minnesota Senate race by a couple of hundred votes, then won on recount by over twice that many. The initial and final count of those decisive votes differed by 245%. What better proof that looters lie, cheat and steal to get access to the initiation of force? I personally want verifiable voting. Mark Twain voted by bawling out his choice in the public square, but I would settle for a QR code (like a secret but verifiable ATM receipt) to let me check online how MY vote was tallied. Until then, we are groping in the dark–as Lysander Spooner described during Reconstruction–under a secret band of robbers and murderers.

Looter parties set up fake Mexican standoffs so that even honest and well-informed voters are gulled away from supporting freedom. Just now Boulder politicians offered an either-or “choice.” The fake choice was not between freedom and coercion, but between a monopoly on a natural gas power plant and another monopoly on worthless, self-destructing windmills. Boulder is home to chinook winds nearly as powerful as the hurricane that just destroyed the windmills and solar panels Puerto Rican taxpayers were duped into installing.

Fourteen candidates were presented, and any libertarians among them were barred by law from identifying themselves on the ballot as against the initiation of force. Their vote counts would doubtless be misreported. Single digits you say?

We got same kind of digits in 2016 as the 9% spoiler vote commie populists in 1892 used as a springboard for getting Congress to enact a federal income tax by 1894. A single digit is the same as the Prohibition Party 1.4% vote average for the 11 campaigns leading up to the 16th Amendment. For 14 years beer, wine and sauerkraut were felony narcotics, with gunfights everywhere until the economy completely collapsed in February 1933.

Our 0.01% of the electoral vote in 1972 was arguably less than a single digit, but in 45 days it pressured the Republican Suprema Corte into enforcing the individual rights of women and their physicians in Roe v. Wade. We got no electoral vote in 2016, but libertarian votes spanned the gap between the looter parties in 11 states casting 90 electoral votes. Casting spoiler votes that increase freedom is winning. Letting the looter kleptocracy destroy our freedom is losing. This is binary, either-or, simple, true and inescapable.

The Libertarian parties in Texas need candidates to help improve the laws there. Canada’s Libertarian Party now has a woman president and is accepting donations from Canadian residents.

Argentina’s Pope and the LP Open Arms policy

Reason replaces superstition

See the original article

Nicholas Sarwark recently commented on how Republicans hate libertarians, and are driving the few who still cling to God’s Own Prohibitionist party “into the arms of” the Libertarian Party. A similar thing is happening with The Church that once signed treaties with Mussolini to include Catholic dogma in government school curricula.

Reason writer Stephanie Slade commented recently on a “purported” pronouncement by the South American Pope to the effect that “libertarian” ideas (i.e. the initiation of force is wrong) are un-Catholic. This is certainly borne out by recent history. Since its publication in 1999, John Cornwell’s Hitler’s Pope has been translated into Portuguese and is accessible to Brazilian readers as predominantly Christian as Germany was in 1933. Catholic parishes have diminished by 12% in Europe since 1980. As a result, organized mysticism is naturally turning away from former nationalsocialist and fascist centers. It seeks money from former colonies and junta-style dictatorships, hence the non-European papa.

Yet the message out of the Italian Vatican is pure Mussolini-era European government control over trade and production. Instead of passé racial eugenics to breed a race of blonde altruists, emphasis has shifted to ecological nationalsocialism and environmental purity. This pope’s message is the same as that of an earlier European religious conservative: “The Common Good Before the Individual Good” (Gemeinnutz geht vor Eigennutz). The Vatican version is that “the climate is a common good”. These are the words of the spokesman for the revealed belief that men with guns must coerce physicians to force pregnant girls to choose between coerced reproduction and mutilation by coathangers—in violation of the Fourteenth Amendment.

Exploiting faith and force to put a strain on the planet’s resources is job one of the Empire that set the Children’s Crusade afoot to throttle the accursed Saracen.  Crocodile tears over the fate of a forcibly overpopulated planet are apparently no longer welcoming little fishies in with gently smiling teeth.

And so we return to the fifth columnist tasked with infiltrating Reason, the libertarian magazine. Stephanie cannot realistically call for repeal of the Fourteenth Amendment to remove individual rights from women. Nor can she join the lynch mob agitating against the libertarian Non-Aggression Principle. The document was carefully crafted for political party purposes–for elections under the Constitution. Her meek attempts to straddle the issue by finding  a half-dozen self-proclaimed catholics not part of the papal lynch mob has backfired into pitchforks and torches pointed at her.

And this brings us back to Nicholas Sarwark. Sure enough, the Holy Father’s own self-appointed press secretary was quick to lead torches and pitchforks against the godless female apostate with this warning:

The incompatibility of Catholicism and libertarianism is a thing so obvious, if she fails to see it, it is not hard to conclude that she has drunk very deeply indeed at the well of libertarian ideology.

It is, as Pope Pius XI said, a “poisoned spring,” not a well, and the life-giving waters that Jesus gives are not for sale on the market.

For the record, Mussolini’s Pius XI had his say in 1931, when Ayn Rand was barely 27. This was two years after Pacelli was elevated to papal nuncio before becoming Hitler’s Pope. Just four years earlier Rand was filmed in The King of Kings. So Mussolini’s pope railed against repugnant libertarianism 40 years before the Libertarian Party was founded?

The important thing here is that the snottiness of coercive mystical populism is alienating a bright young intellectual into the arms of the Libertarian Party complete with non-aggression principle!  As Romish People’s Temple membership declines a percentage point per annum, the LP.org voting population is up 328% from four years ago. That vote share could increase if the Church elders try to stone Stephanie in the public square according to Christian and Moslem tradition.

If you seek to emigrate from a religious satrapy to Portugal, Canada, Australia or the U.S., you might need a certified translator to help with some documents.

 

 

 

 

National Socialist Rally in America

Yep. God’s Own Populist religious conservatives had a rally in… where else? Madison Square Garden!

https://www.theatlantic.com/video/index/542499/marshall-curry-nazi-rally-madison-square-garden-1939/

Thanks to The Atlantic magazine for providing this look back at the impending choice between the Altruist Sandwich and the Giant Altruist. The video records part of the coercive policies Herbert Hoover, William Dean Howells, Jack London and Edward Bellamy helped bring to America by glorifying the initiation of force.

Christian National Socialism

Read the original

This is the Altrurianization of America in black and white! The Pledge of Allegiance you hear is the original written by Edward Bellamy’s brother Francis, before the Eisenhower Administration got hold of it. Tell me again that it can’t happen here.

Curious about how altruistic government platforms have made most of South America into slums? Ask yourself why political economy is no longer taught in schools. A message from: Portugueseinterpreter dotcom.

Political Contributions for Freedom

Once all the Germans, were warlike and mean, but that couldn’t happen again,
We taught them a lesson in 1918, and they’ve hardly bothered us since then…

My father kept the household well-supplied with Songs by Tom Lehrer, nurturing in his offspring an appreciation of mathematics, the arts, and the importance of keeping an eye on the brainwashees of totalitarian ideologies. This training in youth paid off handsomely when routine scrutiny of today’s econazi Germany turned up a philanthropist with a cause–Nina Rosenwald. Her foundation is reportedly a major contributor to “political parties,” but her advocacy focuses on the so-called “rights” of “religious minorities.”

Nina’s website is dedicated entirely to bashing Mohammedanism, as if all other forms of mysticism were neither coercive nor deadly. Religious minorities and majorities alike traditionally regard non-mystical individuals (and each other) as mere rightless infidels. Yet the website belongs to someone whose relatives were hunted down and murdered by Germany’s 98% Catholic and Protestant voters and government–a government popularly elected and overwhelmingly re-elected beginning in 1928. Her Foundational prescriptions extoll “individual rights” without getting too specific about the nature of those individual rights. Her lessons on the difference between freedom from coercion and the bloodbaths brought about by the initiation of harmful, coercive and deadly force rely on examples without explicit generalization by induction. Her funding goes to German political parties, all of which embrace the exact same mystical altruism that prompted genocide as the eugenic solution for making the world safe for altruist collectivism.

Science and reason are receptive to observable and measurable reality. Superstition and mysticism absolutely reject all reason, logic and verification that conflicts with blind determination to interpret mythological fiction as Revealed Truth. One current example is the mountain of well-documented evidence showing that German National Socialism is a Christian movement. Its 25-point Program explicitly endorsed religious Christianity as faith. Its motto, “The Common Good Before the Individual Good” (Gemeinnutz geht vor Eigennutz) extolls altruist collectivism as the ethical basis for distinguishing right from wrong. Those words and God Is With Us (Gott Mitt Uns) were engraved on their coins. Its legislative “solutions” advance the initiation of naked force as the preferred method of correcting traits altruist ethicists imagine breed political incorrectness.  The outcome of all this was demonstrated in evidence presented at war crimes trials in Nuremberg and elsewhere after May 5, 1945. The True Believers’ reaction? Disbelief!

Socialist and altruist websites flatly assert that Hitler was a religious conservative, which he was. “Reds” depict that famous politician as the “right-wing” Christian he himself claimed to be. Catholic and Protestant websites, however, deny as fabrication all evidence that any German and Austrian nationalsocialists were ever Christians™ and produce tortuous argumentation to the contrary. Both of these factions of communo-fascist totalitarianism evade discussion of ethics (what distinguishes good from evil) but unanimously support altruism.

Mystical conservatives “just know” that Hitler’s followers “weren’t really” altruists. Looters less impressed by Divine Revelation are equally sure that Hitler’s followers “aren’t really” altruists, but are Christian. (NSDAP is both).  Their own lists of which communist dictators were “really” altruists vary, but ALL are in agreement that National Socialists are selfish “right wing” fascists. Just as correctly, National Socialists (and other Christian Conservatives) regard socialists of other parties as extremists. Each accuses the other of lying hypocrisy, never admitting that their ideal is the same: altruist collectivism achieved by the initiation of deadly force.

The Republican, Democratic and Green platforms are perfect examples of activated altruism indistinguishable in kind from other totalitarian faiths. In fact, Ayn Rand fired Random House for refusing to publish her essay quoting the Nazi platform alongside excerpts from Kennedy speeches.  Nina Rosenwald could avoid the errors* Ayn Rand committed in her dotage (when both Ayn and Hillary Clinton were Goldwater Republicans). Nina’s support for selected candidates running on Libertarian Party platforms in any of two dozen countries would to more to dismantle National Socialism and Islam than any volume of well-translated tu quoque.

**Supporting Nixon’s war to recapture the French opium regie of Cochin China; flying into a carpet-biting rage against the Libertarian Party that she herself designed.

2016 Second Amendment Gun planks

A Free State

Gun rights vote totals 2016 election

2016 Libertarian Plank on the Second Amendment:
The only legitimate use of force is in defense of individual rights—life, liberty, and justly acquired property—against aggression. This right inheres in the individual, who may agree to be aided by any other individual or group. We affirm the individual right recognized by the Second Amendment to keep and bear arms, and oppose the prosecution of individuals for exercising their rights of self-defense. Private property owners should be free to establish their own conditions regarding the presence of personal defense weapons on their own property. We oppose all laws at any level of government restricting, registering, or monitoring the ownership, manufacture, or transfer of firearms or ammunition. (Yield: 3.28% of the popular vote)

2016 Republican Party plank on the Second Amendment:
Our Right to Keep and Bear Arms. We uphold the right of individuals to keep and bear arms, a natural inalienable right that predates the Constitution and is secured by the Second Amendment. …, … We support firearm reciprocity legislation to recognize the right of law-abiding Americans to carry firearms to protect themselves and their families in all 50 states. We support constitutional carry statutes and salute the states that have passed them. We oppose ill-conceived laws that would restrict magazine capacity or ban the sale of the most popular and common modern rifle. We also oppose any effort to deprive individuals of their right to keep and bear arms without due process of law. … (Yield: 46.09% of popular vote, 56% of electoral vote)

The parties eager to violate the Second Amendment now–the same ones that wanted to prohibit the Strategic Defense Initiative in violation of the Second Amendment in the 1980s–drew even in the popular vote, but lost in the electoral college. Voters in two competing parties have expressed a preference for keeping both electricity and guns legal and abundant and aggregated 49.4% of the popular vote count. That’s reality.

Libertarian votes spanned the spoiler vote gap in States casting 89 electoral votes, 15% more than the total number of electoral votes separating the party that got the pelf and political pull from the one that chose to violate rights protected by the Constitution instead of repealing prohibition.

If you understood this reality check on the outcome of hotly contested election issues, imagine how clearly you will understand my translations of legal, political or economic events in places where the news is in Portuguese or Spanish.
