So how did the Houston vote go?
Houston, Texas, November 4, 2015 – In a historic win, Houstonians defeated Proposition 1, the Bathroom Ordinance, by a resounding 61 – 39% margin. Proposition 1, supported by Mayor Annise Parker, would have allowed men, who claimed to be women, to use women’s bathrooms, showers and locker rooms. (Parker left office in 2016).
For comparison, Irish voters were gulled into a Constitutional Amendment extending the jurisdiction for political coercion to within an individual woman, not long after the LP got the US Supreme Court to strike down Dixiecrat laws against birth control. Canada followed the LP lead by repealing ALL laws threatening pregnant women or their doctors.
The anti-rights Irish amendment was repealed by a 2/3 majority over a year ago, to the delight of the physicians and women it coerced for three decades. Naturally the Houston provocateurs, whose efforts sought to impose coercion rather than enforce broad individual rights, stank and whined for another election after the 60-40 landslide defeat. Watch this:
The child molesting lobby lost again, and the Dems alienated voters. “Campaign for Houston” promptly went after use of government libraries for indoctrination of children by drag queens. Clearly this was the same sort of set-up Libertarian Party useful idiots fell for in the 1980s, shaving our vote share from 1% to below 0.25% percent by simply adding counterproductive planks designed to irritate parents who vote!
Useful idiots? Hostile infiltrators? Practical politicians? You decide. Eight person-units now seek to tarbrush the National Libertarian Party and all our candidates by injecting the following plank:
1.4 Gender Autonomy plank: Individuals have the sole authority to determine and express their own gender identities. No entity has the power to supersede this individual authority.
A quick Google search for political background on “Gender Autonomy” shows the idea is bandied about in communist circles, albeit in vague mumblings about “women.”(link) When practical applications involve minor child mutilation, discussion is in the spirit of snickering social pressure, like frat hazing to get someone else to put the legal proposal in THEIR political platform. Voteless parties in Europe and Iceland do the same. If you can’t beat ’em, infiltrate them and wreck their platforms.
They bicker about persuading a six year old boy to go under the knife and have a surgeon whack his pee-pee. But this sort of drivel is confined to closet ranting and not put on display by any political party with parents, donors and voters to answer to.(link) The exception so far has been… (wait for it…) yes, the California Democratic Party. Those worthies’ 2018 plank rallies woke collectivists to:
Protect the right of all people to use facilities and participate in all aspects of society consistent with their gender identity, regardless of the gender at birth; (link)
Elsewhere in that pathetique platform a 117-word “Climate” sentence straight out of the Marxist Rules of Style follows an assurance of altruistic intentions. It is as revealing a confession of infiltration as any I’d seen–until they got their boy working on the LP.
The result for the Libertarian Party is as good a voter repellent as can be sprayed onto us anywhere outside of California. The 1984 variant of the Child Molester plank COST the LP 3/4 of the vote total earned in the 1980 campaign–and the damage persisted until after the Bush asset-forfeiture Crash and Depression.(link) Our short 2016 platform, with an improved, pro-choice candidate way more than tripled our law-changing presidential vote tally, and raised our total nationwide to unprecedented heights.
To preserve these gains I move that the dupes and knaves who voted to approve this sabotage plank be removed from the platform committee.(link) That’s Gilson, Knapp, McHoes, Meckley, Morris, Perry, Recuero, Taylor, Cole, Longstreth and Wood. This might make reparable the damage already done by bad 2018 planks AND reduce the number of parents eager to spit on our candidates’ coffins.
Every vote we lose through these antics reduces our law-changing spoiler clout by the equivalent of at least 15 wasted kleptocracy votes. Please donate to State and County Libertarian parties not entirely taken over by ideologues hostile to the increase of freedom. Recommendations will be posted here soon.
