VAT: Vermin-Added Tax

Nixon Adds Vermin

Read the original

Europe’s Ecological National Socialist political parties gorge on what they call a Value-Added Tax. But does coercive parasitism really add value? The diversion of currency to unproductive hands was identified as the cause the ruin of nations observed and documented in 1775. Was Adam Smith wrong about this most subtly camouflaged of visible hands?

A lump of uranium is transformed by application of science and engineering into electricity plus isotopes useful to physicians. The work done by human intelligence added value to the original raw material. The “Business Activities Tax,” popular in today’s Bandana Republics and Junta dictatorships, was repealed in the United States back in the sixties. But European collectivists happily imported the VAT as another “sin tax.” Like every other Comstock penalty or sin tax, VAT is a means of adding the sustenance of increased numbers of unproductive vermin to the burdens borne by any who commit the sins of voluntary production and trade.

But value is something Americans want voluntarily–not something that has to be forced at gunpoint. To Europeans, “former” Soviet citizens, and South Americans forced to vote by compulsion, values apparently mean something politicians want from you, voluntarily or otherwise. Richard Nixon is the prominent American who comes to mind when I think of a Vermin-Added Tax.  By voting for the Libertarian platform and its candidates, I send a clear signal to ALL politicians that my vote will never support a Vermin-Adding Tax. Eliminating subsidies to looter parties by removing Nixon’s anti-libertarian Subtitle H – Financing of Presidential Election Campaigns from the IRS code could increase revenue more than anything I can think of.

Pre-Soviet Democrat

Before looters again took over the Dems

So why is Google appointing itself the assessor-collector to “eat out our substanceperpetrated, again, by foreign autocrats? How is vermin-added taxation different from a sin tax? I would gladly buy added Google Drive storage–just without burdening any foreign population with added vermin…

Integrity is their Enemy… 2

Part 2 of the 2016 LP Battleground state spoiler vote lever analysis

Spoiler vote levers: our 2016 vote % times that State’s electoral votes–a measure of clout

The Libertarian Party formed as Richard Milhous Nixon–a Quaker zealot like Herbert Clark Hoover–sought to strengthen the Comstock Law, all other prohibition laws, and use military conscripts to bring nationalsocialist eugenics to bear upon non-christian non-whites in the former French opium regie of Vietnam. These policies drove the dollar off the gold standard and prompted David Nolan to enunciate principles consonant with objective values, and with individual rights as the moral claims to freedom of action:

  • the right to life—accordingly we support the prohibition of the initiation of physical force against others;
  • the right to liberty of speech and action—accordingly we oppose all attempts by government to abridge the freedom of speech and press, as well as government censorship in any form; and
  • the right to property—accordingly we oppose all government interference with private property, such as confiscation, nationalization, and eminent domain, and support the prohibition of robbery, trespass, fraud, and misrepresentation.

The only answers to that are more deception, fraud and force by the entrenched Kleptocracy. Nixon’s cohort, within 24 hours of the Libertarian Party’s formation, made the Anti-libertarian law. This forcibly added government loot to the “contributions” of predatory corporations to bend “major parties” to legislate their will.  Communist and socialist parties were demoralized and strove all the harder to infiltrate the Democratic party. Faith-addled Comstock-law prohibitionists, nos disguising deadly coercion behind a “pro-life” mask, sought more control over the Republican party.  Both parties now invest stolen treasure and effort toward the perversion of voters’ principles. These labors generate fallacious slogans:

  • Perfection is the enemy of _______ (deception and treachery)
  • A vote for _______ (LP candidate) is a vote for _______ (other entrenched party candidate)
  • But Libertarians are in favor of _______ (something awful NOT in the libertarian platform)
  • The Libertarian candidate cannot possibly “win” (Win=be hired by government to help us betray and plunder voters).
  • Winning is getting our tool onto the government payroll to leech off of you. (Real winning is reducing the number of such leeches picking our pockets at gunpoint–this is what LP spoiler votes accomplish)
The Emperor is not a politician!

Scott Adams on non-politicians

But the practical and mathematical effect is that voters may now unequivocally identify freedom from coercion as the value they seek, and politicians cannot ignore that signal. Libertarian spoiler votes carry information content similar to that transmitted by prices. They take votes from both entrenched looter parties in proportion to the naked coercion those parties advocate, no matter how confusingly they confound the issues. This is easy to check using free spreadsheets.

The Libertarian party’s 4 million votes broke down into more votes than the difference between the hired and fired looter party in 13 states casting 127 electoral votes. For context, the anti-energy Dems lost the 2016 election by 74 electoral votes. Seven of those Libertarian battleground states were won by Republicans (for 13% of disputed electoral votes) and six by Democrats (with 11% of those electoral votes). Overall the Democrats, seeking coercion to make electricity and firearms more expensive lost on balance 2%, or eleven more electoral votes to LP candidates than did the GOP, which seeks to crowd prisons and make birth control, bail bonds, First Responders™ and drugs more expensive and dangerous.

Thirteen states are are now benefiting as Libertarian Battleground States for which both kleptocracy parties will pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any abettor, and oppose any competitor to assure the survival and the success of their half of the looter kleptocracy, its remoras and hangers-on. The reader no doubt recalls that These States started out as thirteen colonies abused by a smugly coercive mercantilist Metropolis. Please bear that in mind–and listen to what both entrenched party candidates say about each other–as you decide what (not who) to vote for next election.

Pre-Libertarian Cycles

Cycle theories proliferate in Europe, where Liberal means laissez-faire to the educated. This particular one looks at oscillations in a system made unstable by altruism. The English it is written in is a second language (a concept that is hard to explain to Americans outside of Puerto Rico).

Still, the thoughts aren’t broken at all and the text is proof that political economy is alive and well in parts of Europe once enslaved by soviet socialist liberation. At a glance the graph shows “market share” of two broadly-described, evolving ideologies, the better of which is on the upswing at this Libertarian Moment, according to the author.

A Fisher-Pry graph would be useful

Simple linear trendline for libertarian vote percentages

This whole concept of market penetration and replacement of things like techie gimrackery (cellphones v. landlines, for instance) has been a subject of applied mathematics since the 1970s.  Today we have a definition of government perfected in 1908, and a proper purpose of government spelt out with the Non-Aggression Principle since 1947. Furthermore, the tacit assumption that there is something “good” about altruism has crumbled to powder at the feather-touch of a single question: Why?

Until that question was asked, force-initiating altruism waxed until the infected area became a totalitarian Altruria which promptly collapsed. The ruins were then gradually replaced by voluntarist individualism (however imperfect) in the cycle depicted. For the first time in history a non-aggressive party built on a consistent foundation may keep the blue line at its maximum value and the red line at its minimum henceforth. The Libertarian Party can accomplish this through the pressure of spoiler votes–the mechanism that spread totalitarianism before ethicists seriously analyzed the normative worth of 19th-Century assumptions. It’s certainly worth a try.

Nixon Subsidy Surprises Democrats

Slick Willie Clinton’s old lady broke taboo and mentioned the Libertarian Party. This in the same portion of her audiobook that talks about how surprised Democrats were over an overlooked 3% of registered voters.

But the losing party’s candidate was still clueless as to why Americans voted to keep electricity safe and legal. This was after an ordinary storm turned Puerto Rico into an unlit open sewer. The governor who handed his electors this mess is a member of the New Progressive party, an assemblage of faith-based, prohibitionists absolutely Hell-bent on sending any number of men with guns out to make sure nobody possesses the wrong kind of plant leaves. The party is absolutely opposed to any thought of decriminalizing or legalizing hemp.    But aside from equipping SWAT teams and prohibition snoopers with powerful assault weapons, the party is anti-Second Amendment, much like the 1938 German government.

Socialismo, impuertos y muerte

Progressive Party Prohibitionist

The New Progressive Energy planks are redolent with Green Energy Fund and renewable cant. A Spanish Caudillo wearing makeup advised by the Pope iv Rome is the party poster child. New Progressives despise icky fossil fuels (but press for a Gas Port, not nuclear energy). Platform energy planks go on and on about self-destructing windmills and flyaway solar panels, and fantasize over nonexistent pipedreams such as tiny Herbert Hoover gully dams, tidal, hydro and biofuel, electric cars and so on. Electricity from the monopoly is so expensive that theft is a major problem occupying much of the looter party’s platform space.  If it fails to produce electricity and gets people killed, you will find it in Progressive Party plans. You will not find any mention of nuclear energy in their plan. Entrenched looter parties have drawn up specifications to exclude the Libertarian Party–over and above the Nixon Anti-Libertarian law. So the LP is banned there as in such exemplary democracies as Venezuela, North Korea, Brazil and China.

Satellite photos show Puerto Rico about as well lit today as it was in 1896, when starving in concentration camps run by Big Government mixed-economy Spaniards. Just next door, the British Virgin Islands look like New York juxtaposed with North Korea in nighttime images. Naval nuclear reactors are what stand between Puerto Ricans starving in the dark and having some minimal power. The island has had spotty access to potable water for years and now relies on bottled water handouts. Compare Bay City, hit by the same hurricanes and now up and running nicely thanks to its nuclear reactors. Nice planning, wot?

Non-partisan Parasitism

Mislabel, then defraud!

Censoring Libertarian candidates and platforms breeds parasitism

Since 1972 the number of unproductive hands on Federal government payroll has faltered, then decreased. Formation of the Libertarian Party–even when crippled by Nixon anti-libertarian election subsidies–blocked that avenue of expansion. LIB for Libertarian now appears on ballots in all 50 states.

But local elections, completely partisan in former decades, now resort to disguising the party platforms on which candidates are running. That this is papered over with a bunch of sanctimonious guff about being “non-partisan” hints at how ashamed predatory kleptocracy has become about its depredations.  Because small minds discuss people, they are the more vulnerable to those eager to avoid discussion of ideas.

The Looterverse

The Evil of Three Lessers

Each looter party has to point to how much worse its adversaries are–while avoiding public mention of platform planks and plans.

Looter Media Attacks

Intellectuals of the looter persuasion are quoting Eric Trump as if their cynicism could modify his observation:

“That’s been the playbook in our government for so long: distract, disrupt, hurt, bash, defame, do whatever you can for your own political gain. It’s sad that we don’t have more morals or character or whatever it is.” —Eric Trump

The rough-and-tumble at issue became serious because just as the Libertarian Party was forming, Nixon’s National Socialist Congress passed the Anti-Libertarian Campaign Bribery law of 1971.  Two decades later,  a non-Kleptocracy candidate had this to say about the way the Altruist Broadcasting Corporation, Nationalsocialist Broadcasting Corporation and Communist Broadcasting Service (the dirty tricks guys) were attacking him in October of 1992:

Yes Ross Perot helped the entrenched looter kleptocracy divert voters away from the Libertarian Party. He was repaid in government cash subsidies taken out of the pockets of many honest working people who would rather not coerce anyone.  Perot reinforced the superstitious ignorance that caused These States to export brutal prohibitionism to South America, confident that would destroy the economies of Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador and Bolivia while setting up a fascist dictatorship in Peru. It is true that Reagan Administration manipulation of prohibition and tax laws did wreck a prohibition-created source of cash then fueling communist expansion. But the process corrupted the entire Mexican government into a huge 1930s Chicago.

Spoiler votes cast for Ross Perot unfrocked the more fanatical zealots the way The Liberal Party platform had in 1932. Perot’s spoiler votes reversed deficit spending and led to a surplus just as George Wallace spoiler votes turned Republicans into ku-klux Dixiecrats before the election subsidies law. The Clinton years were prosperous thanks mostly to the policy changes caused by Ross Perot spoiler votes. The looter press, naturally, thanked The Kleptocracy.

So yes, Eric Trump, you observe correctly, and you can do something to improve the situation. Vote Libertarian in the mid-term elections. Tell fake media that the Nixon Media Subsidies to favor the entrenched parties have polluted democracy. Come clean, follow Dad’s good example and say: “Libertarianism? I like it!” The LP platform, the one that got your Dad the nomination, takes less than half an hour to read. Borrowing our energy and Second Amendment planks landed you in the White House. I’m hoping I can count on your vote NOT as a token of appreciation. We both want back the cleaner elections we had before Richard Nixon altered the tax code to subsidize the initiation of force and undermine American morality.

“I like it. A lot of good points…” Those words guaranteed that the desperate, destitute and dishonest Gee Oh Pee urinalysis party would nominate Donald ten months later. That got Republicans government jobs, paychecks–and opportunities to have younger men violently put to death on both sides of the planet.  Three will get you five that that looter cartoonist will not quote your mention of the LP on his mudline fed by subsidized media pets.

Lessons of Political Economy

You can’t can peas without a can. But when the price of steel is high, you can set up a simple math problem to minimize the amount of steel per volume of peas. Anyone interested in freedom can also minimize the addition of coercion into the laws made in defense of individual rights.

Read the original article…

When I first encountered the LP in 1980, it took awhile for their main preoccupation to sink in. To libertarians, they explained, the initiation of force is like the price of steel. You set up equations and logical solutions that minimize the initiation of force, just as canners know how to minimize the surface area of a can of peas. As the initiation of force approaches zero, freedom (by definition) is increased and, consequently, wealth and life-worth-living multiply apace.

Now that the LP wields as many votes as the State of Virginia, looter parties are confronted with pawn power on the chessboard in the form of LP spoiler votes. Each entrenched looter party now has to repeal aggressive laws or lose because of libertarian spoiler votes. If either entrenched party fails in this task, more libertarian spoiler votes are cast. In the looter frame of reference, every such vote greatly increases the risk that the other looter party will win and snatch away “their” boodle and commandeer “their” armed goons. That’s third-party reality, and ignoring it won’t make it go away.

Both kleptocracy parties go to great lengths to trick voters into giving them the sanction of the victim. They make up fake names, for instance. Mystical bigots who in 1918 were monarchists, prohibitionists, and theocrats now call themselves  “conservatives.” Factory-confiscating communists who in 1918 called themselves “socialists” today prefer the cognomen of “liberals.” Liberal is what parsimonious low-tariff mercantilists answered to back when communists called them “plutocrats,” “capitalists” or “The Accumulation.” That gradually changed, primarily through the efforts of the Fabian Society and Norman Thomas:

“The American people will never knowingly adopt socialism. But, under the name of “liberalism,” they will adopt every fragment of the socialist program, until one day America will be a socialist nation, without knowing how it happened. I no longer need to run as a Presidential Candidate for the Socialist Party. The Democratic Party has adopted our platform.” ― Norman Mattoon Thomas

Socialists and theocrats, who after 1939 claimed that Adolf Hitler “wasn’t really” a socialist OR christian and that catholic and lutheran clergy “never really” helped the National Socialist Third Reich, loudly claim Thomas “never said” such a thing. Fine. The statement is no less true (if one expects truth from looters) and there is an undisputed equivalent by a contemporaneous intellectual of the looter persuasion:

The American People will take Socialism, but they won’t take the label. I certainly proved it in the case of EPIC.* Running on the Socialist ticket I got 60,000 votes, and running on the slogan to ‘End Poverty in California’ I got 879,000. I think we simply have to recognize the fact that our enemies have succeeded in spreading the Big Lie. There is no use attacking it by a front attack, it is much better to out-flank them. –Upton Sinclair, circa 1934

After Soviet Russia self-identified as a non-religious state, as the United States had in the Treaty of Tripoli, a schism developed between christian nationalsocialists and lay socialists. The Hoover Administration would not recognize the Soviet government. Because this Treaty of Tripoli is disputed and denied by christian national socialists, I include here Article XI  from my original 1910 version of Treaties, Conventions, International Acts, Protocols and Agreements Vol II p 1786:

ARTICLE XI: As the Government of the United States of America is not in any sense founded on the Christian Religion; as it has in itself no character of enmity towards the laws, religion or tranquility of Musselmen; and as the said States have never entered into any war or any act of hostility against any Mehomitan nation, it is declared by the parties, that no pretext arising from religious opinions shall ever produce an interruption of the harmony existing between the two countries.

The contest between Liberals, Socialists and Organized Mysticism has–with little change of meaning–morphed into a three-way contest between Libertarians, religious national socialists, and lay international socialists. Libertarian spoiler votes are reversing those rights-destroying trends of the 1890s to 1990s the same way, and Populist spoiler votes in 1892 set them in motion in the first place and George Wallace spoiler votes in 1968 accelerated the process.

Simply put, the philosophical teachings of Ayn Rand–put in writing in 1947 as National Socialists were put to death for altruist genocide at Nuremberg–have replaced altruist conditioning that favored the initiation of force. Consequently, the Libertarian Party, founded on sympathetic principles, has replaced all looter parties as the prive mover for change. The leveraged clout of libertarian spoiler votes is changing laws even more efficiently than the communist-socialist-populist spoiler votes of a century ago. Libertarian success is not a mater of putting “our” politicians on government payrolls. It is the result of giving voters a way to express their preference for freedom in terms no political party dares to ignore. –Hank Phillips
