Looter historians explain away financial panics, crashes, collapses and depressions the way their government sponsors expect them to. After all, who who pays the piper, calls the tune. Governments also pay for the public notices sections in the newspapers, and it pays a pauper paper to please petty politicians. Continue reading
Before the Libertarian party we had military conscription to bomb civilians in French Cochin-China, race riots, racial collectivism carrying five Southern states and 22 electoral votes, the Human Rights Party (impostors alert), the Buffalo Party and Reason Magazine… even candidates like George “Coyote” Chalfa ran ads next to the lemons-into-porcupines instructions.
Robert Heinlein wrote about curing a sick society, Robert Rimmer chimed in on free love and Timothy Leary and Ayn Rand both made the case for non-aggression and doing your own thing without bothering others. Leary thought the enemy was the Republican Party. Rand meanwhile struggled to believe that throwing Goldwater under the steamroller of Lyndon’s Soft Machine meant that God’s Own Prohibitionists had abandoned religious fascism for laissez-faire. What really mattered were the 9,906,473 message-sending spoiler votes saying “coloreds” weren’t welcome. Those 46 electoral votes gave the American Independent Klan control of the GOP for the first time since 1928, and the Solid South seceded.
The Jefferson Airplane’s Volunteers of America, Doors fans and citizens of Woodstock Nation recoiled in horror as the military-industrial complex Ike warned against rolled into power on tank treads. Small hepcat parties sprouted peace and legalization planks, only to be crushed, voter-suppressed and gerrymandered out of existence. The Buffalo party felt the poniard…
And the Human Rights Party went like lambs to the slaughter…
Only the Libertarian Party had a clue as to the definition, function and machinery of government. This non-aggressing, legalizing rights-enforcer straight out of an Eric Frank Russel novel blindsided the gerontocracy nearly as thoroughly as Wallace’s Dixiecrats and Wallace was taken out less thoroughly than JFK or Bobby, but as decisively. Women got Roe v. Wade from the LP but were gulled into an Equal Rights Amendment with too short a fuse.
Forty-six years later nobody is drafted, fewer kleptocracy bombs are dropped, communist/anarchist looters are history and Legalized Psilocybin is finally a thing! How bright is the future? Can you say hockey stick?

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.

Remember Serbia? It was Servia back when communist youths shot European politicians practically every month before World War One. But war in the Balkans did not begin in 1914. Only when China overthrew its imperial government in 1911 and halted British and German dumping of narcotics did the price glut destabilize prices, then politics, in that opium-farming region. That particular outbreak of European opium wars began in 1911. Newspapers at the time juxtaposed related articles and let readers draw their own correlations and conclusions.
Here is a sample of an Enabling Act or Patriot Act enacted by the Serbian government. This was over a year before another communist youth shot yet another feather-bedecked Germanic militarist as ratifying signatures slowly accumulated on the Hague anti-opium convention.
Article 1. The police authorities are authorized, in case of a deficiency in the regular organization for securing the liberty and security of persons and property, to ask military commander for the troops necessary for the maintenance of order and tranquillity. The military commander is bound to comply immediately with these demands, and the police is bound to inform the Minister of the Interior of them.
Article 2. Any attempt at rebellion against the public powers is punishable by five years’ penal servitude.
The decision of the police authorities, published in the respective communes, is proof of the commission of crime.
If the rebel refuses to give himself up as prisoner within ten days from such publication, he may be put to death by any public or military officer.
Article 3. Any person accused of rebellion in terms of the police decision and who commits any crime shall be punished with death.
If the accused person himself gives himself up as a prisoner into the hands of authorities, the death penalty shall be commuted to penal servitude for ten or years, always provided that the commutation is approved by the tribunal.
Article 4. Where several cases of rebellion occur in a commune and the rebels do not return to their homes within ten days from the police notice, the authorities have the right of deporting their families whithersoever they may find convenient.
Likewise the inhabitants of the houses in which armed persons or criminals in general are found concealed, shall be deported.
The heads of the police shall transmit to the Prefecture a report on the deportation procedure, which is to be put in force immediately.
The Minister of the Interior shall, if he think desirable, rescind deportation measures.
Article 5. Any person deported by an order of the Prefecture who shall return to original domicile without the authorization of the Minister of the Interior shall be punished by three years’ imprisonment.
Article 6. If in any commune or any canton the maintenance of security demands the sending of troops, the maintenance of the latter shall be charged to the commune or the canton. In such a case the Prefect is to be notified.
If order is restored after a brief interval and the culprits taken, the Minister of the Interior may refund such expenses to the canton or the commune.
The Minister may act in this way as often as he may think desirable.
Article 7. Any person found carrying arms who has not in his possession a from the police or from the Prefect, or who shall hide arms in his house or elsewhere shall be condemned to a penalty varying from three months’ imprisonment to five years’ penal servitude.
Anyone selling arms or ammunition without a police permit shall be liable to the same penalty.
… and so on for another two pages. The lesson here is that economic dislocation–such as resulted from the George Bush Jr. asset-forfeiture crash or the religious terrorism the Bush Dynasty invited by the entangling shelling and bombing former Ottoman territory–results in even grosser initiation of force in a mystically mixed economy.
The initiation of harmful and deadly force sets in motion a feedback loop with forced oscillations. Voting Libertarian is the only effective way to counter these buildups, as the Kleptocracy parties are well aware. Why? Because LP.org candidates and partisans oppose the initiation of force for political or social reasons. No initiation of force means there is no pretext for violent retaliation.

Any perusal of Republican media (Fox News, Pamela Geller…) quickly turns up instances of Saracen berserkers raping, torturing and beheading legally disarmed Christians, never the reverse. The overall impression transmitted is that no True Christian™ ever raised a hand in anger, but rather in sorrow, for purposes of turn-the-other-cheek crucifixion. Is there another, economic, side to this story?
Wearily familiar are the tough love christianization of poor uncovered wretches from Africa and the deliberate extermination of autochthonous Americans before and after the Second Nullification Crisis–the one government historians refer to as the “Civil” War. Yet when was the last time you saw reports from the Balkan Wars? These were genocidal wars that broke out in the opium-producing Balkan States between Italy and Turkey, extending northward from Greece to what was the Austrian Empire back when the Balkans were called the Ottoman Empire.
These conflicts began during the collapse of narcotic prices after the 1911 revolution in China, after which the Celestials firmly halted the dumping of opiates on their shores. The Balkan wars segued seamlessly into WW1, in which all original belligerents were major participants in the production and marketing of morphine. All parties were enamored of and committed to the initiation of force to achieve their ends.
Only in the late ’80s and 1990s, when Mercantile America and Soviet Russia were exploiting black markets in drugs to finance the Cold War, did the Balkans, once happily forgotten, again obtrude to where they could no longer be ignored. Yet the atrocity reports from both eras are nearly indistinguishable. Indeed, the book in reference is a 1993 annotated reprint!
After China reinstated specific drug prohibitions, Balkan wars surged as a raging turmoil of christians exterminating and “converting” mohammedans and vice-versa. The violence ramped up into what government historians call World War 1. A truce was made by the Versailles Treaty whereby defeated morphine exporters paid tribute–explicitly including “chemical drugs” and cash–to victorious morphine exporters. The 1990s version were a replay nearly identical in all aspects, including the skillful elision of all mention of poppies, opium and morphine. Religious fanaticism, on the other hand, appears on practically every page, though lately euphemized into “ethnic cleansing.”
The 1912-1914 outbreaks were reviewed in 1993 by The Carnegie Endowment–from the folks who in 1930 assembled The Liberal Party that drafted the platform plank calling for repeal of the Prohibition Amendment so intimately bound up with the Crash and Great Depression. The foreword was by George Kennan, the U.S. Chargé d’Affaires in Moscow who in 1946 sent “The Long Telegram” explaining Soviet politics to U.S. diplomats. The Carnegie Endowment for International Peace Division of Intercourse and Education Report of the International Commission to Inquire into the Causes and Conduct of the Balkan Wars is, of course, a cover-up. The word “opium” is even excised from medical lists in the appendices. Yet this is also true of WW1 and WW2 documendacities. Treaties of armistice and surrender and the League of nations Charter could perforce not avoid mentioning this largest causal component of a great many wars, so they are themselves studiously ignored and hardly ever quoted at all except in laundered form.
Serbian movies feature heroin the way American movies depict marijuana as a component of everyday life. The Peking Daily News recorded in flawless English the progressing escalation of conflicts in Europe. The Balkan wars intensified as British politicians realized no amount of whining would soften Chinese determination. Yesterday’s news has been rectified and elided from the record with Orwellian precision, but can still be exhumed from research libraries and newspaper morgues. Bank statements, not battles, are where one looks to find the roots of war.

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.
A public service transcription for a better understanding of political terminology.
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.
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. 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.
