Anarchists in the news


Republican Party news channel is lambasting an anarchist conspiracy to imperil the lives of jackbooted minions First Responders™ who are simply following orders. The orders sclerotic Kleptocracy parties give to officers is to rush out there with service pistols to initiate the use of force against the peaceful. Unlike Libertarian candidates, they justify this by horrible scenarios of what they imagine would happen without force-initiating laws creating victimless “crimes.”

Those same arguments brought the Prohibition Amendment, and not one of its proponents prophesied the 1929 Crash and Great Depression.(link) They blame THAT on too much freedom as well. Now, when Kleptocracy minions learn about the Second Law of Retaliation, guess who Faux News, MSNBC, CNN and CPUSA will blame? 

Only Violent Communists are Real Libertarians™

Pinhead: “Only First-Responder™ endangering Anarchists are Libertarians!” (link)

For the past couple of hundred years anarchist has meant violent communist.(link) But as soon as the Libertarian party platform stopped race-suicide Dixiecrats from threatening doctors and pregnant women, in 1973, communist infiltrators occupied the Libertarian Party and began jumping in front of cameras and proclaiming that only murder-legalizing anarchists are Real Libertarians™.(link)

Uninspected entry, no passports or visas

Importation of undesirables, terrorists, public charges, infected herds–Party Platform contamination!

Democrats and Republicans were quick to agree with this guilt-by-association method of tarbrushing an honest competitor.(link) In 1975, Republican opinionist James Kilpatrick was smearing Libertarians as communist anarchists. Nowadays communist infiltrators posing as candidates, delegates and even directors are rewriting the party platform to redefine all libertarians as bomb-throwing anarchists. With friends like these…

Das Boothead libertarian Impersonator

Who needs enemies?(link)

So fifth-column non-libertarians (the Mises Caucus) failed to nominate mental institution candidate Das Boothead for president, but nevertheless foisted his MS male companion and communist anarchist “Spike” onto Jo Jorgensen’s campaign in a blatant act of sabotage.(link)  Now the chickens are coming home to roost and Republicans are greeting this imitation game with whoops of joy.

With little effort, Ted Cruz may declare the Libertarian Party the real terrorist organization, arrest our candidates and apologize to Antifa rioters and arsonists for having mistaken them for “Libertarian anarchists.”(link) With our 2016 platform a pro-choice candidate tripled our vote share.(link) Remember that when the communist anarchist takeover and terrorists-without-borders plank plunges the LP back down to the half-percent vote share typical of antichoice candidates running on a pederasty platform.

WINNING!

LP Spoiler Votes WERE increasing by 80% per year…

Let Her Speak

 

Four years ago a woman came within 80,000 votes of winning the presidential election according to Vanity Fair.(link)

Today two males representing looter prohibitionist parties are asking for your vote. Your vote for Trump or Biden’s platforms will keep police looking for ways to shoot your child using plant leaves as an excuse. Should the child survive, that will mean the addition of another victimless person to the world’s largest prison system. Both legacy parties are cruel, dishonest and violent. Thanks to the Libertarian Party may choose between the old coercive kleptocracy and a new dawn–not being bullied at gunpoint

Webcomic to end all webcomix

The Democratic and Republican parties are about the initiation of force. Any murders, no matter how heinous or cowardly, they will again write of as the price “we” must pay for eugenics, or climate pseudoscience, or the worship of their invisible friends, or some imagined conspiracy by selfish egoists. I say again because this happened before already.(link

From 1938 to May of 1945, Christian National Socialist Germany systematically disarmed, arrested, enslaved and exterminated millions of Jews on the Eugenic theory that they were born selfish, whereas Christians are born altruists, and the world had to be made safe for altruism. This is still the ideology of the Republican Party.(link

From 1919 through the 1930s, Soviet communists systematically enslaved and mass-murdered Ukraine farmers to steal their grain. The pretext was that they were selfishly hoarding seed grain from the glorious altruist revolution that just accidentally left everyone but party officials in starvation and pestilence. This is the ideology of the Democratic Party.(link)

Cowards casting votes for either gang of violent looters will of course see these charges not as falsehoods, but as exaggeration or too bluntly put. Republicans will argue that only a few teenagers are murdered by the looter police or coathanger abortions they insist on perpetuating. Dems will likewise claim that all criticism of socialist regimes are lies, fake news, and that even if the Russian, Chinese, Vietnamese, East German, Romanian, Cuban, Angolan and Guyana communists hosted “a few” mass murders, their altruistic motives plainly justified those actions.(link

Republicans agree with Hitler in Gemeinnutz vor Eigennutz (the Greater Good before the Individual Good) in the interest of “Positive Christianity,” and Mussolini’s Credere, Obbedire, Combattere. Democrats nowadays agree with nationalsocialists that altruistic motives justify the initiation of force, but that “the” other party “isn’t really” altruistic in its sacrifice of individuals on the altar of prohibitionist purity or in the war on race suicide.(link

spoiling for a fight

Nineteen million votes said to keep electricity, enjoyable leaves, women’s rights and self-defense uncoerced.

By merely LISTENING to what Jo Jorgensen has to say you undermine the power of these bloated entrenched kleptocracy forces–with their secret police and no-knock warrants–to confiscate everything you own for no reason. Well over 4 million libertarian spoiler votes upset China’s plans to have the Dems ban electrical power.  Nineteen million votes from municipal races to federal office were cast in support of the Libertarian Platform. Does spoiler voting work? Seen any draft cards lately? So yeah, let her speak!

Republicans then and now

Pope endorses 24-hour work shifts

Republican exploitation was fun back then. Plant leaves were legal.(link)

I found the above item in the Meriden Daily Republican for Saturday, December 31, 1878. That was the year the Infallible Pope Leo, appreciative fan of Vin Mariani,  issued a papal bull decrying the cults formed by “semi-barbarian men calling themselves socialists, communists or nihilists…” (link) A free-trade agreement was entered into with the Samoan Islands, silver dollars were coined as legal tender and greenbacks were kept in circulation to please the Grangers and to simplify eventual resumption of the gold standard. 

There had been some ruffled feathers over dry fanatic Rutherford Hayes having been declared winner in 1876 with 165 electoral votes to Samuel Tilden’s 184.  The difference required a swap of 20 electoral votes from Southern States for withdrawal of federal troops so that ku-klux “Redeemers” could make damn good and sure Black voters were suppressed, and kept from voting against Democrats.(link) Four years of “Lemonade Lucy” Hayes refusing to serve alcohol at the Executive Mansion were enough.(link) Hayes was succeeded by Arthur Garfield who was quickly shot by a fellow Republican who had not been awarded “his” hoped-for political sinecure.(link) Observe that in 2016, Libertarian Party candidate Gary Johnson got more votes than either of these Reconstruction-era candidates.(link)

Amid the fallout from crony-assassinations and Jim Crow election-stealing, Democrat Grover Cleveland was elected, defeated by another religious prohibiton fanatic, then reelected despite voter suppression on a platform to do away with “sumptuary laws which vex the citizen and interfere with individual liberty.” (link) Oddly enough, the silver glut and monetary crisis so stressed agrarian cheap-money parties as to bring a surge in neo-communist electoral votes. Cleveland’s second term was so awash in post-Republican financial problems and socialist orators that it stood by as Congress approved a Communist Manifesto Income Tax in 1894.(link)

The banking collapse was so widespread that Supreme Court Justices struck down that Income Tax and saved enough banks to cash their own tax-free paychecks. So ended the first Republican war on enjoyable drugs, and the closest thing to a libertarian Administration since the Jefferson and Jackson Administrations. Communist anarchist assassins and meddlesome coercive prohibitionists rapidly proliferated in These States and in the effete mystical mercantilist monarchies of the Old World, and communist income taxes proliferated apace.(link) World War I soon followed.(link

Spoiler Votes: Evolution in action

Spoiler vote evolution for change

Spoiler vote evolution in action: prohibitionists, socialists, averaging 2% of the vote. Votes above the horizontal line covered the gap between parties gaining and losing a hand in the till. Tall bars that did not cover the gap still exert great pressure for change on entrenched parties.

WINNING!

Libertarian votes are replacing Kleptocracy votes like CDs replaced vinyl LPs

Evolution is a process whereby DNA-based living things adapt themselves to reality in order to survive. Failure to deal with the facts of reality results in increased attrition, that is, death rate. Political systems evolve similarly. A century ago dead monarchies were washing ashore, replaced by democracies or dictatorships relying on a modified form of brainwashing and coercion. The Federalist Party went extinct, its niche occupied by the Whig, then by red Republican partisans. None of this happened overnight, but the 1st World War sped up the process. The 2nd raised the potential cost of aggression to levels that voters realize they cannot afford. The initiation of force now entails risk of retaliation with nuclear and biological weapons.

The logistical replacement curve above shows that voters are increasingly aware of this risk and acting to reduce it. Looter parties are also aware of this shift, and increasingly meddle with elections through subsidies, voter suppression, gerrymandering, intimidation, propaganda, character and actual assassination, trumped-up charges, infiltrators, agents provocateur, tarbrushing, sabotage, arson and violence–and not just in the United States. 

Comunists abolish elections

Russian voters increasingly shun the Communist Party, so Putin seeks appointment as Dictator For Life instead of more elections. Trends matter!

Since our own War Between the States, small looter parties fattened on Marx, Bellamy, Howells, London and less literate but still active communist anarchists. The constitution was mutated by artificial selection favoring the initiation of force, resulting in the Income Tax, Prohibition and direct Senate election amendments.

From 1868 to 1968 there was not a single party dedicated to the increase of freedom. All of them sought to maximize coercion–especially the seizure of other people’s goods. Young men had to choose between exile, prison or meddling as foreign murderers. Plant leaves were good for a prison term and forfeiture of assets. American women were conscripted in a eugenic War Against “Race Suicide”–the sort of law even Catholic Ireland has since repealed.

When Irish sights are open

Irishwoman before Libertarianism

All that changed when the Libertarian Party platform earned a ten thousandth of half the vote, and with one electoral vote assisted the Supreme Court in the defense of the individual rights of women. For the past 48 years voters have increasingly realized they can vote for individual rights for women without endorsing communism. Voters can reject entangling alliances and transfer payments from producers to non-producers without endorsing fascism. It is now possible to vote for economic freedom without attacking individual rights, and vice-versa.

We got 4 million presidential votes in 2016, up 328%, plus a similar number of votes in down-ballot State and county elections won by several of our candidates. A clout-wielding, law-changing Libertarian spoiler vote is never wasted. A vote for the Kleptocracy is a ballot wasted as 0.00000007% of the votes endorsing increased coercion, violence, war, debt, imprisonment, shooting of youth over plant leaves, torture of Americans abroad, and menacing of doctors who offer birth control. Your libertarian vote packs about 20 times the law-changing clout, and changes the laws to favor freedom, not add coercion.(link)

Prohibition and spoiler votes

1922-3 no deposits till after nullification of dry laws

US v Sullivan, 1927, income tax looting causes slow, steady withdrawals

Prohibition–the constitutional product of the shotgun wedding of fanatical mysticism, socialist controls and eugenics theories–became reality and a nightmare all at once on the night of January 16th, 1920. Socialist candidate Eugene Debs got nearly a million votes in the showdown between the Dems (who got us into WW1) and God’s Own Prohibitionists (who insisted we stay in the War on Beer). Why? Because in 1916 Debs had said “There is too much prohibition.” 

German stocks crash as heroin export income taxable

Germany exported heroin and had U.S. plants in the 1920s

When the economy collapsed after 6 months of wartime prohibition plus 1 month of Constitutional prohibition, membership in communist organizations promptly doubled. But the Kleptocracy ignored reality in 1920-1923. Prosecutor Willebrandt didn’t, and got the Supreme Court to squelch the 4th and 5th Amendments and declare evidence from tax returns admissible for prohibition and evasion liability in mid-May of 1927. German stocks immediately went sour. Neither entrenched party published a repeal or modification plank, and in 1928, Dry Hope Hoover beat Whiskey Al Smith 5 to 1. The small looter parties were obviously no help to freedom–their platforms called for coercion. 

The Increased Penalties Act foisted onto Hoover destroyed the economy when ex-prosecutor Willebrandt (yes, the same lady) explained in over 20 nationally syndicated papers how income tax asset forfeiture would be used to enforce Prohibition laws. Federal Reserve bank balances also began dropping as soon as Willebrandt got the Supreme Court to scrap the Bill of Rights and use the income tax–copied from Karl’s Manifesto of 1848–to enforce prohibition. 

No surprise here. The addition of that same communist manifesto plank to a tariff bill in 1894–in violation of the Constitutional prohibition of capitation taxes–so completely destroyed the economy that the Supreme Court had to strike it down the following year in order to have banks at which to cash their own paychecks. When was the last time you saw or hear tell of this partially concealed newspaper story?

1 in 1000 blurred illegible

Druggan, Lake Indicted by U.S. as Tax Dodgers 14MAR1928–Markets panic

Moreover, the income-tax-as-bludgeon decision in US v Sullivan immediately coincided with a German bourse crash, while French stock exchanges also began falling for years to come. Markets went haywire when Druggan and Lake were grabbed by Internal Revenuers mid-March, 1928. The Liberal Party formed in 1930, drew up a wet plank which the Dems accepted with tears of gratitude, then won five consecutive elections while battling the National Socialist government Hoover’s 1931 Moratorium foisted onto Germany.

The outcome of that election was FDR beat Dry Hope Hoover 11 to 1, but the collapsing economy–officially unexplained–had opened the floodgates increasing communist party growth in These United States by a factor of ten by the time Ayn Rand formulated the Non-Aggression Agreement. 

Only by keeping the American people confused about Prohibition and The Crash have the subsidized media managed to keep voters mesmerized by subsidized Republicans who deny being fascist and subsidized Democrats who deny being communist. Then again, that’s what the Nixon law of 1971 pays them to do. Understanding how these looters wreck your retirement savings, then voting Libertarian to let them know the jig is up; that’s the road to recovery. Doing the right thing–using your leveraged LP spoiler vote to change bad laws–is winning. It’s your decision.

Hyphenated parasitism

Jesus freak christianofascism

Christian Vegan depicted as extreme-right in Germany (link)

Anarchism is the same thing as communism. If in doubt, see in their own garbled renderings how indistinguishable they are. (link

Back in the 1890s, when communism, anarchism and socialism were the same collectivist thing, with no gulags, death camps, killing fields or cyanide Kool-Aid suicide tests, few hyphens were needed. Bellamy’s strikers, Howells’ Altrurians and Jack London’s proletarians were proud of their altruistic belief in the initiation of force–provided only that the altruistic aggression were dictated by the historical necessity that made the triumph of socialism over monarchic industrial colonial mercantilism inevitable. There was nothing even remotely resembling laissez-faire agorism under Comstock laws and the Society for the Suppression of Vice.

Bryanism

Crucify Mankind on a Cross of Altruism

To add palatability, majority rule advocates and expropriation enthusiasts added “social” or “people’s” and “republican” (often meaning Red) as descriptive modifiers considered attractive at the time. Instead of communist parties pushing Karl and Friedrich’s progressive income tax, they were called Greenback, Anti-Monopoly and People’s. Under the big umbrella of racial eugenics, prohibitionists and communists, christians and other collectivists, often made common cause. (link)

Communism eats Dems

Anarchism now tries to Swallow LP

But no sooner had Russia’s NKVD and OGPU gone KGB and Germany’s Staatspolizei gone Gestapo, SS and Stasi than people began fleeing and killing themselves rather than submit to those paradises of worker altruism. Jew jokes making fun of selfishness disappeared when National Socialism came to power in February of 1933. The Soviet Socialist noble experiment was by then known to have resorted to genocidal extermination to loot grain crops to sell for hard currency. (link)

With the moral stature of altruism thus revealed as no less deadly than other forms of parasitism, mimesis became more and more important as a stalking-horse for depredation. Mercantilism was renamed capitalism and all communo-fascist variants of socialism mislabeled themselves with hyphenated imitations of “something else.” (link)

Anti-Libertarian Society

Creeping Fabian Socialism

Just as ants, mice, fish, birds and mammals are exploited through mimicry by social parasites, so mimesis plays a role in converting government from defender of individual rights to parasitical aggressor by camouflage, imitation, misdirection and impersonation. Shorn of the sheepswool of altruism as a proxy for “good” intentions, looter ideologies have no choice but to resort to hyphenation in order to mask themselves as something less noxious. (link

Locust

Now you see it…

Look around you and you see democratic, progressive, liberal, as modifiers masking and disguising socialism the better to take its target hosts unawares. As libertarian political ideology matures into a peace and freedom party increasing its vote share at 80% per annum by dislodging the parties of aggression, it is no surprise that aggressors of the looter persuasion suddenly describe themselves as “pro-life,” “pro-freedom,” “democratic-socialist” and “anarco-capitalist.” (link)

Destructive parasitism

Anarcho-parasitism preserves bad laws

The one practical lesson these hives have handed down to Libertarians is that very few spoiler votes for a consistent platform are needed to cause the scissioned and fratricidal Kleptocracy change its laws, planks and Constitution in hopes of keeping its withering hand in the till.(link) Libertarian politicians need to make voters aware that a wasted vote is a vote appeasing any part of the initiation of force–whether for Gott und fascismus or Historical necessity and communism in their various masks, disguises and euphemistic aliases. (link) (link)

Libertarian vote growth

LP vote growth since 2000, percentage

Every vote cast for an actual LP candidate threatens looters with financial and coercive power losses unless they back away from cruel laws. The spoiler vote strategy worked when fanatical prohibitionists and socialist looter parties joined forces to pass the 16th, 17th and 18th Amendments. Now that voters have seen the outcome of Christian fascism in Germany’s death camps and added mass death in Soviet gulags and grain famines, that ancient strategy now works to repeal cruel and coercive legislation enacted in those ignorant times.

Libertarian Party nominates communist anarchist

With friends like communist anarchists...

Anarchists infiltrate and sabotage the LP.org

With the LP increasing its vote share by an additional 80% per year, it would be silly to expect the trillionaire looter kleptocracy to sit back and let that continue. Last election’s finalists included an overt Republican warmonger explicitly rejecting the Non Aggression Pledge required for party membership, several non-entities and Gary Johnson. Gary’s pro-choice nomination netted us 4 million votes, which multiplied his previous anti-choice outcome by 328%.

WINNING!

Pro-choice LP candidate on a good platform


Delegates had the presence of mind to pick the first female presidential candidate backed by an honest party. Hopefully Jo is not a stealth Phyllis Schaffly. So far so good.

Among the losers were Vermin Boothead, the image of a skid row infiltrator, and his for-veep sidekick, a communist anarchist answering to Spike Cohen.(link) Cohen’s candidate statement is:

I understand that the Platform is an attempt to compromise between different positions and I completely respect that, but as an individual candidate my policy is anarchy.

Anarchy, like socialism is a synonym for communism and vice-versa, and has been for the past century. As soon as the Libertarian Party formed, conservatives promptly tarbrushed libertarians as anarchists. Democrats recalled the 1932 campaign, in which Republicans intimated that liberals favoring relegalization of beer were communist sympathisers.(link) Democrats were at the time being engulfed by the 700% increase in communist membership brought on by the Hoover Crash and Depression.(link) Today’s anarchist message is unilateral disarmament and surrender in violation of the Second Amendment.(link) The Second Amendment definitely applies to nuclear weapons and antimissile systems. (link)

Anti-defense street people non-voter lobby

What Republicans and other Socialists want voters to associate with the Libertarian Party

No surprise then that the Bernie bro does NOT support any version of the Libertarian Party platform. His albatrossing of Jo smells a lot like a sore loser caucus attempt to tarbrush the campaign with communist associations–in the middle of a germ war pandemic. After all, their footwear-headwear Wavy Gravy impersonator failed to associate us with inmates of the State Home for the Bewildered and repeal of the Second Amendment.(link)

The delegate selection process needs to be examined as sternly as the screening of saboteurs injecting nonsense into the platform. Spike is vote repellent just as girl-bullying antichoice mystics foisted on us by Republicans are vote repellent. The fewer spoiler votes the LP earns, the faster the Kleptocracy will sentence people to thousands of years in prison–the ones it does not kill outright in no-knock raids against plant leaves. (link

Platformista for life?

Is this what writes your platform now?

Infiltrating whack jobs into the LP.org costs us law-changing spoiler votes. This literally helps the looters rob, imprison and murder people. We have the Mises Caucus to thank for this. Remember that name when our vote count drops to under one percent again.

Send money to your state and local LP and support their candidates. Let the communist party support the sold-out national LP and replace its staff with Bank of China bureaucrats until national party saboteurs can be rooted out.

Clear libertarian principles

The 1972 Libertarian Party Statement of Principles is far and away the best such presentation anywhere today. But the clearer we make it the less chance there is for regrettable misinterpretation. The fallacy of equivocation is the assignment of different meanings to a term, usually by accident or oversight. The word in question, however, is the noun form of “right” or “rights” the thing we seek to defend. Here is the correct usage, in which a right is an ethical claim to freedom of action: 


We hold that each individual has the right to exercise sole dominion over his own life, and has the right to live his life in whatever manner he chooses, so long as he does not forcibly interfere with the equal right of others to live their lives in whatever manner they choose.

Compare that with Thomas Jefferson’s phrasing: 

That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed

Jefferson makes a clear distinction between rights and powers. Here is an LP rendering Jefferson could improve by editing: 

Governments throughout history have regularly operated on the opposite principle, that the State has the right to dispose of the lives of individuals and the fruits of their labor. Even within the United States, all political parties other than our own grant to government the right to regulate the life of the individual and seize the fruits of his labor without his consent.

Clearly, this version of a “right” is at best a legitimized power or a deontological arrogation of coercive privilege, and conservatives, fascists, socialists and communists delight in misattributing those meanings to “rights,” just as gleefully as they blur the distinctions between freedom and coercion.

A right is a moral claim to freedom of action was drummed into our UTEXAS Ethics classes by tenured Prof Tara Smith, who dared us to refute it. The definition is consistent with most of our criminal code, Constitution and Declaration. If a right is a claim to freedom (absence of coercion) it can hardly be retasked into a political provision for the execution of convicts, belligerent criminals or enemy combatants, all of which mean the exercise of political power. Even in classical terms, political power in social sciences is the capacity to see to the physical restraint of men, hopefully men who have abdicated their claim to freedom by aggressing against others.

Physics according to the Hog of Steel

Prof. W. Warthog, PhilbertD.


By analogy with freshman physics, where force times distance is work, and the rate at which work is done is power, political power is the same, with the caveat that since the exercise of physical restraint typically involves harmful and often deadly force, the rate at which that sort of work can be done is people incapacitated/killed per unit of time. Look at comparisons of military force and they are measured and expressed in those terms. So if we want to keep clear the distinction between the exercise of individual rights and exercise of the physical restraint States are tasked with using to secure those rights, we ought to resist blurring the distinction.

On the practical side, the change ought not to cost us any votes. I expect that the added clarity will better attract the support of anyone we could ever hope to attract. Even if the suggestion undergoes defenestration, I would then turn to attempting to replace the equivocated “right” with “legal standing”, “authorized authority” or some other, more appropriate construction. Even the “right” to kill in self defense is only a sloppy expression of the special, often regrettable, unintended and unfortunate case of the freedom or right to act in self defense in situations so fluid and dangerous that a jury might agree that the fatal outcome could be justified in a court of law or court-martial. Nicholas Sarwark is more qualified to expound on that collocation.

Suppose the original idea was to deliberately misuse “right” as a venomous barb on what amounts to a criticism of (imputed) wrongs we hope to right. Then I beg leave to suggest the barb was way too subtle for the opening statements intended to enlist support for us. As a joke it does not translate well. Right this minute there are 20 other countries looking to us as exemplars for the drafting of platforms for advancement of rights and minimization of coercion—even if less than instantaneous. Examining just a few of the “constitutions” those people have to work under makes one appreciate the advantage of a Constitution smaller than 8000 words.

This language is in the original platform, which I cherish and defend, yet would not hesitate to rescue from error. I have always admired Hospers and Nolan and would argue the same point to them. This is something no later platform committee can be blamed for, yet its importance is so fundamental (especially when you contemplate expressing it in other languages), that I feel obligated to advance this suggestion. I of course welcome the most vigorous attacks on its supporting logic and rhetorical usefulness.

I move that the expression be reexamined and incorrect iterations of the word “right” be replaced with “political power” something more appropriate for the description of even the most salutary government coercion. If that motion fails, I would move that the incorrect specimens be placed in quotes.

A Mess of Dotage

Thanks to Gilbert Shelton of Texas

1971 Gerontocracy Politics versus the LP.org

The Don is 73, Biden (Harry Anslinger 2.0) is now the 77 Trump will attain if he makes it another four years. Bernie (Edward Bellamy 2.0) at age 78 has only one ideological peer, and that is AOC (Lolita Lebrón 2.0)–49 years younger.(link) Ronald Reagan was a mere child of 70 summers when elected, but was already having dotage problems before leaving office. 

All the Libertarian party need do is find another pro-choice nominee with a life expectancy greater than zero who has read and agreed with the platform. With that we would for the first time ever have a chance at what suckers and vidiots refer to as “winning.”(link). Robert Dear is not that nominee, and neither is Ron Paul, little Randall or Justin Amash; all are sworn enemies of individual rights for women like Ceausescu and legacy Old World mullahs, pontiffs and Ottoman kings. We want someone more like John Hospers and Toni Nathan.(link)

Communists and fascists try to infiltrate

3 out of 4 Libertarians AREN’T WOMEN thanks to race suicide collectivist infiltrators tarbrushing our party from within!

To the looter gerontocracy, “winning” means getting your candidate to dodder past the electoral college finish line so your party gets a gun in one hand and a hand in the till. To a libertarian activist, winning is using spoiler votes to cause looter antagonists to–in desperation–repeal cruel laws and lower taxes. The kleptocrats do these things in hopes of surviving a race in which Libertarian voters cover the gap between two wheezing, senile liars. Your libertarian vote is highly-leveraged currency with which you may buy back freedom or repeal coercion. Either way you look at it, you win. (link)

What Irish Voters Repealed by 2/3 majority

There is precedent for the noble experiment of gerontocracy. When Herbert Hoover was elected President, one of his “Good Neighbor” prohibitionist wet-your-whistle stops was the People’s State of Argentina. On April Fool’s Day of 1928 those idealistic voters elected Hipólito Irigoyen to a second non-consecutive term, per the example of Grover Cleveland. But Cleveland was only 56 at his second Inauguration in 1893. Argentina since 1928 or 2020 is hardly an example of freedom or economic success.(link)

By December of 1929 Herb Hoover was anxiously congratulating Argentina’s First Senior Citizen for surviving an assassination attempt at age 77. Irigoyen was inaugurated almost six months after the election, and actually held office until deposed in a caudillo-style military coup. His term in office lasted nearly two years. Nobody remembers him or the junta caudillo who took his place. Argentina has but small reputation as a hotbed of intellectual libertarianism.(link) Libertarian parties only exist in the freest countries, like the USA. (link)  

Never has there been a more opportune time for U.S. voters to grow some backbone and vote for the future of freedom, rather than throw away law changing spoiler votes for a mess of dotage.(link) Judge Rehnquist was the Nixon appointee who followed George Wallace’s spoiler votes to the point of voting against Roe v. Wade. He dropped in the traces at 81, way more confused than today’s Joe Biden. John F. Kennedy, coke-sniffing, joint-smoking, peace-loving acidhead bent on “a world of law and free choice, banishing the world of war and coercion,” was elected president at age 43. 

JFK was shot in the throat from ahead

JFK was shot from ground level ahead; Connally from 6 floors up

Kennedy’s murder, performed by three gunmen orchestrated by Republican and Dixiecrat nurturers of a world of war and coercion, passed that torch to a new generation. Eight years after that coup, the Libertarian Party was formed as Nixon signed into law government subsidies for entrenched, decrepit and violent soft machines.  Our first candidates, John Hospers–born one year later than JFK–and Toni Nathan, moved our women’s rights plank into the Roe v Wade decision. It took the communist party another eight years to copy the LP and offer Angela Davis as veep on a platform to abolish individual rights. The Dems copied them four years later.

WINNING is repealing cruel laws!

LP choice vote increasing 80% per year after Bush Crash!

This is an opportunity not to be missed. But it is better not to have a candidate than to let another religious fanatic infiltrator announce to women everywhere that the LP seeks to bully and coerce them. Leave that to the Republicans, Dixiecrats, Tea-totalitarians Middle-Eastern monarchies and Old World fascism. Even in Ireland 2/3 of voters decided women, not the papacy, are the individuals with rights. (link)
