Herbert Hoover’s hashish hookah

So was Herbert Hoover stoned on hashish just before losing the election? This pre-elections Letter-to-the-Editor says:

Listened last night to President Hoover’s Speech at Madison Square Garden. I was so dumbfounded by his tirade against the Democrats that I read his entire speech once more this morning to make sure that I heard the things I thought I was hearing. After reading it I can come to only one conclusion, and that is: Hoover must have written that speech after smoking an unusually strong pipe of hashish. And he must have been under the influence of the drug when he delivered it.
By no stretch of the imagination (undrugged imagination, that is) can he or anybody else accuse the Democratic Party (either by what they have been saying or doing in the past 20 years) of all the things Hoover accuses them of intending to do. As a matter of record, the most constructive piece of legislation passed during the last 50 years–The Federal Reserve Act–originated with and was enacted by the Democratic Party.
If this Madison Square Garden tirade had come from a Ward-heeler, we would consider the source and let it go at that. But coming as it did from the President of the United States, it only adds one more reason to the many already existing why he should be retired next week. DISGUSTED REPUBLICAN, November 1, 1932

Back then there was no Libertarian Party for which to cast a law-changing spoiler vote.  Like today, Republicans were sending men with guns to shoot people in their homes for suspicion of enjoyable plant leaf products and grain products. They seized cars, shipping, and bank accounts using tax laws to batter past the 4th and 5th Amendments. Banks folded as money was removed before looters-by-law could confiscate it–just like in 1987 and 2008.

In 1932 you either voted for dry killers and asset confiscators or crooked machine politicians of another stripe, piggybacked by socialist orators, union goons, and till-tapping brain trusts. In Hoover’s NY speech  he admitted that “many of our citizens sought flight for their capital to other countries; that many of them attempted to hoard gold in large amounts.” Why? “We have more nearly met with a full hand the most sacred obligation of man, that is, the responsibility of a man to his neighbor,” confessed Hoover, letting his altruist ideology as jailer of men shine forth for all to see.

Mimicking fiscal parsimony, Hoover groaned that the average citizen “works for the support of all forms of Government sixty-one days out of the year.”** Nowhere does Hoover mention prohibition, beer becoming a felony, or admit that his party’s policies made a train wreck of the economy. 

Today you may invest your law-changing vote in a competent alternative to both geriatric parties: LP.org

** Nowadays that’s 106 days a year of involuntary servitude to those same political parties.

Violent Anarchism in 1894

Here’s another article from the peak of anarchist communist popularity in 1894. A communist youth fires a gun at a politician and transubstantiates into the “anarchist” version of looter ideology. Hundreds of such acts reported in tens of thousands of daily newspapers have taught voters that people who call themselves anarchists fire guns and hurl bombs in crowded places. The article reports that the Anarchist Lega,

fired two shots from a revolver at Signor Crispi, Premier of Italy, while the latter was being driven in his carriage to the Chamber of Deputies.
Lega, who, failing to wound Signor Crispi, was promptly disarmed and captured by the latter, was convicted of attempt to murder, and was sentenced to 20 years’ imprisonment with frequent intervals of solitary confinement.
The prisoner received his sentence with a smile of bravado, and exclaimed “Long live Anarchy! Avenge me, bretheren!

Ask yourself if this sounds like a vote-getting label to stick on a candidate of a political party. Yet such useless liabilities flock to join the Libertarian Party NOT out of shared ideological values or goals. If they were sincerely interested in creating their chimeric and fallaciously conceived “anarchist” society, a libertarian society might not be such a bad starting point.

Contrariwise, all exponents of “anarchy” I’ve questioned convinced me they are dissembling infiltrators bent on sabotaging the political ideology most dangerous to the communist faith. Their entire purpose, like that of “pro-life” fascist infiltrators, is to make the LP stink in the nostrils of voters who would otherwise give us a hearing, and maybe some spoiler votes with which to force the kleptocracy parties to lower taxes and repeal cruel laws.

Law-changing LP spoiler votes are what looters of all stripes fear.

Find out how American Liberal Party spoiler votes gave the Dems the wherewithal to win five consecutive elections and undo comunist and prohibition spoiler vote damage. Prohibition and The Crash–Cause and Effect in 1929 is live on Amazon Kindle for the cost of a pint.
