ERA 2… A New Hope

Subtle understatement

Sinfest.net nurtures controversy

After the Libertarian Party’s role in drafting Roe v. Wade euchred George Wallace Dixiecrats out of effective participation in the movement to restore the Comstock Laws, The Empire Struck Back.

That seminal 1972 election showing–with fewer than 4000 popular votes and one rational electoral vote– enabled the LP to protect pregnant women and doctors from fanatics by providing the language that framed the Roe v. Wade decision. Just as irritating to girl-bulliers was congressional approval of the 1972 version of the Equal Rights Amendment, to wit:

Section 1. Equality of rights under the law shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of sex.
Section 2. The Congress shall have the power to enforce, by appropriate legislation, the provisions of this article.
Section 3. This article shall take effect 2 years after the date of ratification.

True, Phyllis Schlafly’s cuckoo-infiltration remake of the Wizened Christian Temperance Union began an outpouring similar in content and shrillness to the original reaction to the Women’s Organization for National Prohibition Repeal 43 years earlier. To them the idea of women making their own reproductive choices was as odious an affront to Allah as the thought of beer NOT being a shoot-first felony. After all, had not the Methodist Board of Temperance and Other People’s Morals determined that proper temperance was the deadly force exerted by dry killers, often led by vigilante Men of God?

But a campaign of murdering doctors coupled with incessant dinning for eight different Constitutional Amendments to compel women into involuntary biological labor was put onto effect by activists of the American Party, Prohibition Party and Republican Party–the latter under prohibitionist control since 1928. The hysteria spread like Nationalsocialism and the ensuing remake of racial purity rallies staged at Klanbakes and Nuremberg outdid southern celebrations exulting in the Kennedy assassination, and even louder Burn-The-Beatles demonstrations put over as outpourings of “Our” Savior’s opinions.

Banana Republic of Texas

Future Texas Ballot?

“Which button tells them to go to hell?” “Dunno, but if you press that green one, the voter goes to hell.” (No Libertarian Party is allowed in Brazil, Bolivia or Venezuela. NOTA beats the 32 subsidized parties in Brazil’s big cities.)

Texas was part of Mexico until just before the Opium Wars. Given today’s Landover Baptist Republicans and People’s Party Democrats, it might as well rejoin the Latin American Papal States. Come to think of it, that might not be so bad.

Old hippies’ pension checks stretch farther in Mexico, where small amounts of enjoyable plant leaf products are no longer framed up as some sort of victimless crime. And if the Libertarian Party is kept off the ballot, ku-klux Dixiecrats and Nixon Moral Pejoratives will again be empowered to dictate how Texas females must labor against race suicide.

In point of fact, It was Nixon’s Anti-Libertarian Law that opened the floodgates to voter suppression. That 1971 enactment shakes down workers to fund the soft machines used by political parasites to facilitate further extortions. Then, embarrassed at having gone for Johnson instead of following the anti-choice Dixiecrat stampede for George Wallace, Texas repented. By the time Arthur Bremer closed off that pathway to Positive Christianity in power, Nixon’s party had incorporated much of the Dixiecrat platform and Texas voted Republican.

Now, guess which State recently arrested and is trying to send a young black lady to the penitentiary for five years for voting while on probation? Guess which State sentenced a schoolteacher of latina extraction to eight years in the slammer (with deportation to follow) for daring to imagine a green card meant she could cast a ballot? Finally, guess which State has Republican politicians pressing to force the LP off of the ballot?

Reverting to Mexican statehood would appear to offer no net loss of individual rights. You can take Texas out of the juntas, but you can’t take the caudillos out of Texas!

What is Fascism?

Fascism is religious socialism

Christian socialism similar in Italy and Germany. Compare their documents…

Canadians do not censor the papers to suit republicans, and they know the dictionary meaning of liberal. This newspaper story is a relevant visual aid I found on Google News. It says:

Mussolini Introduces Bill For Intensive Teaching of Religion to Youth of Italy–ROME, April 30–Intensive teaching of religion in Italian schools is contemplated in a new bill presented to the Fascist parliament by Mussolini, as a consequence of the treaty recently concluded with the Vatican.
Young Italy in the future, in the words of Education Minister Signor Belluzzo, “will be permeated, or rather, fortified, by the lofty spiritual contents of the Roman Catholic Religion and its sacred character of a cult with the tradition of two thousand years.”
This makes it clear that the extension of religious instruction in state schools, particularly desired by the Vatican, will be carried out to the letter and the government has already circularized teachers asking them to do all in their power to form a new generation in Italy that will be “Christian in thought, sentiment and action.”
Teachers are ordered to collaborate with the clergy to this end.

Renazification of Texas

Demokratie im Amerika

Texas Denazification poster extolling democracy to educate POWs during WW2

Texas was where many National Socialist and Japanese collectivist prisoners were penned up for reeducation in the virtues of democracy at Huntsville and Crystal City. Democracy in Germany ended 4 years and 19 days after Republican candidate Herbert Clark Hoover was sworn in to enforce the new Five and Ten law making beer a shoot-first felony. Hoover sought to stop Germany from exploiting American Prohibition by dumping heroin Stateside at inflated prices, while at the same time strengthening the very prohibitionism that exacerbated the demand for narcotics. Today’s Republicans continue to fill prisons using victimless “crime” laws against plant leaves as a pretext for asset-forfeiture looting. These violent laws the Libertarian Party seeks to repeal.

The Manly Sullivan decision, in which our Suprema Corte empowered the dry autocracy to use Prohibition and tax laws for asset forfeiture, coincided with the crash and decline of Germany’s stock market. National Socialist candidates immediately began getting more votes as the German economy contracted in a spasm that 16th day of May, 1927. As nazi vote share rapidly increased, Republican Herbert Hoover’s 1931 standstill Moratorium assisted German rearmament by freezing all repayments of war loans and reparations. The U.S. economy continued its collapse until, by March 3, 1933, every bank in the nation had closed its doors prior to FDR’s order that they shut down. Twenty days later Hitler’s nationalsocialists began shutting down all opposition parties just as today’s Republicans are trying to shut down the Libertarian Party in Texas by barring us from ballot access.

The Republic of Texas welcomed German immigrants in 1840. Economic collapse in countries dependent on dumping opiates in China began when the Chinese deported British dope traders at Canton. The U.S. economy slumped along with Big Pharma countries as British capital was withdrawn to build up the Royal Navy for the Opium Wars of 1840 and 1857. Impoverished Germans poured into Texas and built the Germanic towns of New Braunfels, Brandenburg and many others as the Adelsverein assisted their migration. By 1930 Germans amounted to 36% of the Texas population. During WW2 another 380,000 were brought in as POWs before defeat, Nuremberg war crimes trials, hangings, prison terms and denazification.

A is A

German voters were offered two kinds of looters, then… one.

So today the Republican party, closely patterned after the National Socialist platform of 1920, has realized that despite federal election campaign subsidies obtained through Nixon’s Anti-Libertarian Law, its more obnoxious candidates are being pole-axed by Libertarian spoiler votes. Libertarians are against the resort to violence and coercion. American voters gave the LP swing-vote control over 13 of the 15 states with the most independent voters. We earned more votes than the difference between the Trump and Hillary campaigns. Texas legislators now propose the same sort of Socialist v. Nationalsocialist “elections” that brought young Germans to Texas in chains in 1943.

Rather than allow voters the redress they seek at the ballot box, the Gee-Oh-Pee panders to prohibitionist, race-suicide Dixiecrats whose spoiler votes it coveted in 1968. I appeal to Texans of German, Jewish, Mexican, Caribbean and Brazilian descent to contact the State Legislature in defense of democracy before Positive Christianity fanatics again establish a One-Party Dictatorship.

Here’s who you need to contact: 

Rep. Joe Moody – 512-463-0728

Rep. Joe Deshotel – 512-463-0662

Rep. John Frullo – 512-463-0676

Rep. Craig Goldman – 512-463-0608

Rep. Oscar Longoria – 512-463-0645

Rep. Will Metcalf – 512-463-0726

Rep. Tom Oliverson – 512-463-0661

Rep. Eddie Rodriguez – 512-463-0674

Rep. Toni Rose – 512-463-0664

Rep. John Wray – 512-463-0516

The LP hates one bill and likes another. I can find neither and I’ve been doing this for decades. But here are some more politicians you might want to call on to let voters choose:

Rep. Stephanie Klick – 512-463-0599

Rep. Philip Cortez – 512-463-0269

Rep. John H. Bucy, III – 512-463-0696

Rep. Dustin Burrows – 512-463-0542

Rep. Briscoe Cain (Sponsor of the GOOD bill. Tell him “thanks!”) – 512-463-0733

Rep. Art Fierro – 512-463-0596

Rep. Celia Israel – 512-463-0821

Rep. Mayes Middleton (Sponsor of the BAD bill.) – 512-463-0502

Rep. Valoree Swanson – 512-463-0572

I personally like to egg the looters on in hopes the people will string them up once they realize they’ve been had. But cooler heads assure me that, like Maduro of Venezuela, Texas politicians simply feign incomprehension and act like their feelings are hurt. So I have no advice to give. No machine politician has ever seen reason until after being whopped upside with enough spoiler votes to turn or nearly turn the election.

Dixiecrats v. Libertarian Party

Collectivist National Socialism

Wallace’s ‘Murrican Party platform carried 5 states and rewrote the GOP Bible

This just in:
A couple of months ago, the Arkansas state legislature, a.k.a. the Sahara of the Bozart, pulled some shenanigans and rapidly pushed through an “emergency bill” to make it nearly three times harder for us to get ballot access there. Why? Because Republicans are scared to compete with us.

Why else would so many Republican sockpuppets sign up as Reason Magazine commentators? Their mantra is the same fixed-pie mentality that is the foundation for communism. A vote for the LP is a vote “for” the same LIBERAL party that in 1930 added repeal of the 18th Amendment to its platform and helped the Dems win with it. That plank alone won the 1932 election plus five more.  Republican prohibitionists turned to Franklin Roosevelt’s enemies for help. The last thing the GOP wants is spoiler voters interested in individual rights costing them their political jobs, power, pelf and boodle.

Franklin Roosevelt’s enemies were German National Socialists. These were politicians of the very party Herbert Hoover had helped take over Germany by giving them a Moratorium on Brains in 1931. The moratorium excused Germany from paying war reparations to its victims and also from repaying loans taken from American suckers.  This so-called “standstill agreement” is right there in Atlas Shrugged, a book which, with the non-aggression principle, was written as nazis were tried and hanged in Nuremberg:

“The economic condition of the country was better the year before last than it was last year, and last year it was better than it is at present. It’s obvious that we would not be able to survive another year of the same progression. Therefore, our sole objective must now be to hold the line. To stand still in order to catch our stride. To achieve total stability. Freedom has been given a chance and has failed…. So we’ve got to stand still. We’ve got to stand still. We’ve got to make those bastards stand still!”

“The country” Wesley Mouch was referring to could easily have been Nazi Germany. In fact, we had come this close:

Republican National Socialism became ingrained after Dixiecrat spoiler votes nearly blocked Nixon’s election. George Wallace in effect rewrote the GOP platform just as Ralph Nader’s econazis rewrote the Democratic party platform after the y2k election. Today’s Republicans shout “liberal” in exactly the same tone as 1930s nationalsocialists shouted “liberal” and “Jew.” Some people have a hard time letting go of hillbilly superstitions.

Libertarian Saure Diethylamid

100 signatures sufficed for ballot access then and there

Another outside party turned up in 1970 opposed to aggression, conscription, prohibitionism, victimless crime laws and Comstock laws and in favor of relegalizing drugs. The obviously Libertarian Buffalo Party’s planks soon turned up in the platform of the Libertarian party. With fewer than 4000 votes the LP blocked Dixiecrat laws forcing women to reproduce against their will. The current wave of plant leaf decriminalization is the result of Libertarian Party spoiler votes over the course of 12 national election campaigns. It took 11 campaigns for the Prohibition Party to make beer a felony. Spoiler votes have finally become a mechanism for increasing freedom by throttling back coercion.

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?

People who talk about other people

same old same old

Before Women Got the Vote

A republican infiltrator at the Reasonoids meetup in Austin could only talk about who the LP should listen to and support. The bait? More people would like us (as opposed to vote for our platform and candidates).

There is nothing new about this particular dodge. The purpose, as always, is to get us to dilute our message by wasting votes on candidates fielded by looter parties.

This is the same as it was over a century ago. Men still thought in terms of personalities rather than principles, issues or freedom. Every election was a flinging match over what adjectives to apply to wannabee politicians. Fools get caught up in the excitement rather than leverage a vote so as to shape the votes and mindfully direct the policies and actions of those selfsame politicians. They don’t have to like us or agree with us. They need only fear that our spoiler votes will cause them to lose to some other, less objectionable looter candidate.

This is how the communists and prohibitionists used their tiny percentage of the vote share to rewrite the constitution, saddle us with an income tax and make beer a felony.
