This is your 12th opportunity

What (not who) will you vote for?

 In 1840 your male vote for Northern Democrats said “rob me;” for Whigs said “raise import tariffs,” and for Southern Dems said “rape black women and beat the men to death.” Your vote said one or the other

In 1860 there were no more Federalists or Whigs, only high-tariff spenders on improvement and primitive rapists and bulliers of slaves.  Your male vote said either “protective tariff” or “secede from the monopolistic high-tariff Customs Union.”

In 1880 your male vote could say “arrest, tax and rob people over whiskey and beer” and “bully them for Jesus,” or “bring back White Supremacy,” or “tax and rob people for communism.” That was the third-party alternative. 

In 1900 your male vote could say “make war, raise tariffs and ban liquor and drugs,” or “White Supremacy but no sumptuary laws,” or “tax and rob people for communism.” All three alternatives required coercion.

In 1920 your vote could say “White Supremacy and sumptuary laws” or “sumptuary taxes, confiscation and imprisonment,” or “tax and rob people for communism.” All three alternatives required the initiation of force.

FINALLY in 1972 your vote could say “White Supremacy and sumptuary laws” or  “conscription, bombing, fascism and Comstockism,” or “replace the initiation of force with freedom and individual rights for women!” For the first time ever, spoiler clout leverage worked in favor of freedom and against coercion at gunpoint. The LP got under 4000 presidential votes then, and over 4.5 million in 2016. That’s an increase of a factor of 1100 over the course of 44 years in which the world population doubled.

Now that we still have such a clean cut alternative, in 2020 you may for the 12th time choose one of 3 alternatives on the ballot in every state: You may vote to “endorse Nixon fascism,” or “endorse Eurasian communism” or “increase freedom by reducing coercion!” Two of these choices are the same as asking to be whipped, paddled and humiliated. Only one tells politicians that you have enough dignity to recognize and enforce your own individual rights and the rights of others. 

This is your 12th chance to vote Libertarian or sanction coercion. Which will it be? 

Make your vote MATTER for a change!

The Looter Kleptocracy has evidently pressured media companies such as WordPress to make blogging as difficult as possible before the election. Twelve million libertarian votes would go a long way toward removing new impediments to blogging and restoring the usual formatting tools.

Communists without Borders

Spoiler votes topple Comstockism 1892

Communist spoilers carried 5 states with 22 electoral votes and enacted a Manifesto Income Tax

Many of the things communists agitate for in mixed-economy States would get them shot in their own dictatorships. The current fad in democracies is to infiltrate nascent libertarian organizations and persuade any suckers present that inspected jurisdictional boundaries are baaad. The obvious reductio argument for this is that wholesale importation of foreign terrorists and infected herds of cattle is goood–but this is never the preferred approach. Even birds are smart enough to know there is something wrong with a snake climbing the tree to approach their nest. 

Beware of altruism

Donations to the hijacked National Party

Imagine a burglar infiltrating a homeowners’ association and persuading the members to remove their front doors, leaving only the openings. Though difficult to imagine anyone liable to go along with the plan so baldly stated, social pressure can make it happen. Several infiltrators join the association in cahoots, then issue comments like “I sure saved on electricity since removing the front door.” This is reinforced with “me too” rejoinders and appeals to the virtue of gregariousness over “isolationism.” Soon homes can be burgled without so much as a by-your-leave. That is what has happened to the National Libertarian Party more than once.(link) Back then it was Republican infiltrators wrecking the LP in retribution for the 1972 platform having handed the Supreme Court the language that became the 1973 Roe v Wade decision

infiltrating brood parasite

After uninspected entry onto the LP Platform Committee

By the late 1970s Libertarian publications contained ads offering “Anarchist Pamphlets,” while unemployable cognoscenti poured forth assertions that closing the gate or inspecting border crossings is an act of aggression and a breach of ideological consistency. Shills are swapped in to replace actual libertarians loath to remain in the company of suckers and cretins.(link)

1 equals 0

The fallacy of equivocation

Voters find themselves confronted with platforms that demand “children’s rights” to be used as catamites and uninspected open borders entry of religious terrorists in suicide vests showing no identification. The resulting fake Libertarian party is promptly tarred and feathered, the Kleptocracy lustily resumes its asset-forfeiture looting with both hands in the till, two snouts in the trough and First Responders™ shooting kids with qualified immunity. It has happened here and is happening again now, thanks mainly to communist anarchist infiltrators passing themselves of as “libertarians”.

Libertarian versus Anarchist

 

Do you know the difference between a libertarian and an anarchist?

Anarchist pollution

Jo, not Brainless n Boothead!

A libertarian acts to minimize the initiation of force.

An anarchist seeks to maximize the initiation of force by cross-dressing as a libertarian and spitting in voters’ faces.

Altruistic Climate Arson

Open Borders Burn Baby Burn!

Read the original (link)

Would a self-sacrificing woke altruist toss a handful of burning straw into a forest to wake people up and Save The Planet? The job is easy… no annoying surveillance cameras to provide embarrassing evidence, and there are thousands of instances of similar arson going on right now within cities bristling with cameras. West Coast newspapers are now trying to avoid the subject and whine at how elected officials avoid being looted by the IRS.(link)

Use your Chinese computer to search for “forest arson” and screen after screen fills up with “climate arson nonsense,” “forest arson rumors,” and innuendo branding as loony anyone able to think for a minute that the people who deliberately set fire to stores to send a political message would ever dream of torching a single bough of one of Joyce Kilmer’s trees. (link)

The 1988 forest torchings torchings in Israel coincided with a sharp upswing in forest firebuggery in California, Oregon and Washington–States so loaded down with Asians that they insisted on a Chinese Exclusion Law back in 1882–renewed in 1893. The communist system in Europe was collapsing in 1988, with people fleeing by hundreds of thousands to escape totalitarian altruism. It’s a rare communist anarchist zealot who would pass up the chance to make Fearless Leader look good by amplifying terror of Misanthropic Climate Warmunism. But China itself has its own mysterious forest fires blazing, suggesting that two can play.  “Open Borders” rhetoric inviting uninspected entry is one of the chinks in Uncle Sam’s territorial jurisdiction that invite invasion by foreign commandos and facilitate arson by miscreants within.(link

But that’s crazy talk. “Sane” talk is Assistant Drug Czar Joe Biden bawling that Boss Trump is engaging in “climate arson.” Libertarian voters are witnessing the failure of a Kleptocracy so enraged by it’s own Janus-faced other half that it will deliberately burn cities and forests and shoot people in the back in a bid for more political power with which to wield added harmful and deadly coercive force. Voting Libertarian is voting against aggression. (link)

Republican Election Fraud 1864

WE WUZ ROBBED!

Articles on same page of Hartford Weekly Times 19NOV1864 (link)

America was at war over the same tariff policies that brought her to the brink during the Nullification Crisis. The Morrill tariff enacted after Lincoln’s election was no less abominable and prompted Texas militias to seize federal armories. This second Tariff of Abominations was signed by President Buchanan on March 2, 1861, two days before Lincoln’s Inauguration. Did none of your “educators” mention this detail?

A similar bomb was planted on Herbert Hoover 58 years later. The “Increased Penalties Act” of 1929 demanded five years in prison and a fine equivalent to 14 pounds of gold for Beelzebub’s Beer and The Demon Rum. Its enforcement using the new Manifesto capitation tax wrecked the stock markets and fractional-reserve banking system and put an end to Republican Administrations for 20 years. (see book below)

But politics continued and Civil War Democrats split into Peace Democrats, who wanted to sue for peace, and War Democrats, who believed in fighting it out to enforce “the” laws, but not for the object of abolishing slavery. This faction also voted for McClellan. Both DEM factions supported McClellan, but “the” laws meant the Fugitive Slave law to one faction and the protective tariff to the other. Here is another snapshot of that election: 

WE WUZ ROBBED!

Same page as above, along with other letters…

There were two types of oaths, one was administered to voters. The other was the pauper’s oath–a formal declaration by a person that he is destitute and incapable of self-support. This was required in certain states to be eligible for public relief. Such an oath normally operated to deprive someone of the vote.

Today’s government school system harps on slavery, yet primly elides mention of the antebellum sexual abuse to which the women were subjected. Harriet Beecher Stowe dared bring this up–instead of mentioning the protective tariff. Similar strategy prevents today’s Kleptocracy historians from mentioning the causal connections between Prohibition and The Crash, but inducing ignorance in no way changes the facts. Orwell warned that lying about such things eventually backfires when the truth leaks out.(link)

Then, as now, both entrenched parties were soft machines in a kleptocracy dedicated to the initiation of force, rather than the defense of individual rights. Campaigns, as now, featured all the dignity and seemliness of two looters fighting over a bottle of gin snatched from a smashed liquor store window. A hand in the till and another confiscating your assets over plant leaves are high priorities to both doting factions. Both legacy looter parties want to continue “penetrating” weaker neighbors urging shoot-first repression of recreational plant leaf derivative markets. Nevermind that exporting prohibitionist policies PREVENTS those countries from developing functional economies. 

The other priority shared by both entrenched parties is meddlesome invasion and bombing of distant primitive villages in some sort of religious war designed to bring terrorist retaliation. The only leveraged way to clearly say NO to all these dishonest and murderous policies is to vote for libertarian candidates in November–especially State and County LP candidates. 

But let’s be fair. Listen to what our adversaries say about each other before you choose LIBertarian on the ballot.

Libertarian Party 20 years ago

We're still here, growing at 80% a year!

See the original newspaper (link)

The Southeast Missourian, July 3, 2000, page 5 of 56 = page 8A
Libertarians Nominate Browne for Second Run (AP) ANAHEIM, CALIFORNIA – More than 1000 libertarians gathered at the party’s national convention on Sunday nominated Harry Browne, their 1996 candidate for president, to run again in 2000.
The 67-year-old investment banker from Nashville Tennessee acknowledged he has little chance of winning the presidency. He said he hoped his campaign would reinvigorate what was formerly the nation’s top third-party.


“We’re the only political party that’s offering to set you free,” Browne said. “It’s the most powerful political message in the world.”


Officials with the Libertarian party claims some 30,000 dues-paying members. It also identifies itself as the biggest third-party movement in the United States.
However, the party has lacked the star power of the Reform Party and the Green Party in recent years.
Browne finished fifth in 1996, behind Reform Party candidate Ross Perot, and Green Party candidate Ralph Nader, garnering less than 1% of the national vote.
He has proposed a program that would eliminate income taxes, Social Security, the war on drugs and federal welfare.
Competing against Browne were: Don Gorman of Deerfield New Hampshire, a former four-term New Hampshire state legislator; Barry Hess, a salesman from Phoenix Arizona; David Hollist, a charter bus driver from Alta Loma, California; and Jacob Hornberger, president of the future of freedom foundation, a think tank in Fairfax, Virginia.

Voting against communo-fascism

The Texas LP is finally responding to the whining entreaties of “both” Kleptocracy parties.(link) Democrats are beginning to understand their party is only democratic in the sense that East Germany was “democratic” in 1989. George Wallace and burning Beatles records at Klan rallies were still getting top Democrat billing in 1974, as the Hero of Chappaquiddick quietly shuffled out of the bid for nominations.(link)

Send a message to Washington!

Remember George Wallace’s War against Race Suicide birth control?

Joe Biden is a man to thank if your children or dog were shot by no-knock Exorcists of Satanic plant leaves.(link) (link) (link) If your property, vehicle or bank account were taken from you via asset forfeiture, Joe Biden, Ron and Nancy and the Bush dynasty are the perpetrators of the Anti-Drug Abuse Law of 1986 making that happen.(link) (link) Biden may not recall the law that caused the Crash of October 1987, but I do.(link) I vote Libertarian.(link) Read the law and find out why the Comstock-tool Post Office is failing, about mandatory minimums, Doomsday prohibitionism for the “wrong” kind of leaves and seeds took decisions out of the hands of the judicial branch.(link) That Doomsday Machine caused the Crash of 2008 and Flash Crashes of 2010 and 2015.(link

Learn, Baby Learn

The Bush Dynasty bombed distant fanatics and brought retaliation on Americans

The Republicans lost with every religious fanatic candidate since the George Bush Jr asset-forfeiture crash.(link) Daddy Bush bombed primitive Mohammedan tribes to steal oil instead of permitting U.S. nuclear power reactors to light our cities–and look what happened! Trump is perhaps more competent than those losers, but the Republican Party isn’t. Now the Chinese Communist party is using germ warfare to wreck the economy in hopes of gulling Americans into electing a senile, mindless puppet.(link) Rotsa ruck with that!

Libertarian Competition increases Freedom

We are freer today than we were before the Libertarian Party got the looters looking over their shoulders!

So you can maybe understand our raucous laughter when looter shills whine that “a vote for Jo is a vote for (looter kleptocrat)” My vote for Jo is a vote for Libertarian Party principles that have worked for me since 1972. My vote for JO packs 20x the law-changing clout of a vote wasted on lying looters. They know that 0.0000014% is 20 times more than the normal grovelling 0.00000007% cast my a herded peasant.(link) My vote tells the looters to go directly to hell, do not pass Go, do not rip me off for another $200. Patrick Henry sent a similar message to the British Government.(link) They laughed, they made fun of us, attacked us… six years later we won and the King stopped laughing.(link

Remember mercantilist monarchies?

Sue for Peace!

Spoiler vote clout

A Klanboy and His Dog, 1960

The abject terror with which both halves of the force-initiating kleptocracy now face each other is an opportunity not to be missed.(link) In one fell swoop, every voter with any capacity for independent thought can multiply a single ballot’s clout into a Sword of Damocles.(link) The beautiful part is that each libertarian spoiler vote’s sword can, with Solomonic impassivity, force all champions of the initiation of force in violation of individual rights to sue for peace by changing their platform demands and repealing their victimless “crime” laws.(link) Why not make the looters Sue for Peace on Drugs?

Hockey stick for Libertarians!

Libertarian vote share model predicts 9.2 million presidential LP votes in 2020.

Republican Richard Nixon added a War on Drugs to the War on the Vietnamese, the War on Poverty and the War on Women. Nixon’s Moral Majority televangelism deftly purchased the cooperation of the looter media via the Nixon Anti-Libertarian Law, then co-opted George Wallace’s Ku-Klux Kollectivist demands and parlayed them into the Republican Gentlemen’s Agreement to break up the Solid South.(link)

Teddy the Chappaquiddick Quitter

Democrats STILL favored Wallace’s racial collectivism in 1974!

By this mechanism (and some gunfire), Eugenic pseudoscience again became law and prisons filled with nonviolent hippies, black and brown folks, all thanks to the transubstantiation of victimless trade into imaginary crime.(link) Pregnant women nevertheless managed to escape religious fascism’s trap thanks to the Supreme Court’s adoption of a 1972 Libertarian plank into its Roe v. Wade decision.(link)

Democratic party communists promptly adopted the “War on X” concept in more garbled terms. “No Justice, No Peace” is another demand to surrender to communism no different from the “Freeze” movement disemboweled by the Second Amendment. “Just say No” (or be arrested) was a Biden favorite. “Black Lives Matter” is the same appeal to racial collectivism as “Saving American Lives” is an exploit of nationalism used to mask the identities of government-backed killers.

Change accelerates with integrity

Logistics replacement curves describe choices that change(link)

But now that BOTH the GOP and Dems favor men with guns shooting kids over plant leaves, and asset-forfeiture confiscations of homes, vehicles and bank accounts of innocent people, the stupidest thing anyone can do is vote for either party’s candidates. Republican asset-forfeiture as exorcism of Satan will ruin the economy even faster than the creeping communism favored by the Dems.(link) After that it guarantees they will win the post-Crash elections just as Dems won from 1932 to 1948. 

Fascist altruism or communist altruism?

This false alternative happened when Germans abandoned freedom

Listen to what they say about each other and it hasn’t changed. For the last eleven campaigns both looter parties have struggled to ignore the Libertarian party and sworn the other would destroy America.(link) Suckers and cowards repeat this endlessly–even fake libertarians.(link) Vote for the superstitious initiation of force to save us from the communist atheist initiation of force was what Von Mises, among others, intimated to help elect Hitler.(link) A looter vote says only that another cowardly 0.00000007% of Americans wants to be coerced toward fascism or communism. A Libertarian spoiler vote says 20 times louder: sever that hand from the till! Let the chips fall where they may–I will settle for nothing less than freedom from coercion and full individual rights!(link)

Why be a coward or a sucker when by having some integrity you make twenty times the difference for yourself and your loved ones? Winning is improving your lot. Losing is surrendering to the machine! Make a real choice.

Prohibitionism destroys the banking system

Almost everywhere in the world people sip a cold one in biergartens, backyards, sidewalk cafés–but Wizened Christian Temperance Union Amerika, under laws left over from Andrew Volstead’s Minnesota and the Anti-Saloon League–ain’t one of them places. Fortunately Americans have a choice. You can choose not to vote–people in Australia and Brazil have no such option. You can also choose to vote for Libertarian freedom instead of the mangy, sclerotic soft machines that want men with guns to shoot young people over plant leaves and confiscate their property. 

The pro-slavery and protectionist parties that dragged us into a civil war over tariff policies are still in business. Indeed, the Communist Manifesto, written even as they girded for violence, is still a thing to a huge dictatorship that “accidentally” poisons the planet with germ warfare weapons from time to time. The communist party is over 170 years old, and the Dems and GOP even older. 

Communist dictatorships collapsed in the 1990s, but were not replaced by libertarian societies. Instead, there was a reversion to superstitious mercantilist mixed economies featuring less chattel slavery and colonial rule, but otherwise fairly authoritarian. The media and academia are so heavily infiltrated that it is impossible today to find a chart showing how the fraction of humanity under communist rule has varied in recent decades. Go ahead, try it, and get back to me if you do. 

spoiling for a fight

The number of libertarian voters struggling to replace kleptocracy machine candidates over time is easy to find. Ways are found to keep them out of office, but even that is breaking down under the increase in libertarian voter support. Yet before 1972 there was total hopelessness. War enslaved men into involuntary combat, and prohibitionism brought wars and banking collapses.

Money deposited with banks and brokerages is low-hanging fruit to looter governments. When seized on some pretext, owners of unseized money withdraw it from the fractional-reserve banking system. The economy collapses, communism and looting in general increase, and the media are charged with explaining the whole thing as the result of “too much” freedom or “not enough” coercive regulation–which amounts to the same thing. 

After the Nixon Anti-Libertarian Law passed, news media understood that pretending the crashes had nothing to do with hatchet-wielding Treasury, tax and prohibition agents was a lucrative source of cash. And so it is today. Yet every individual can make a huge difference by the simple act of casting a vote for Libertarian freedom and against the senile politicians of the GOP and Dem soft machines.

Me First!

Catch-22 by Joseph Heller

Individualist values

“From now on I’m thinking only of me.”
Major Danby replied indulgently with a superior smile: “But, Yossarian, suppose everyone felt that way.”
“Then,” said Yossarian, “I’d certainly be a damned fool to feel any other way, wouldn’t I?”–Catch 22

Concern for one's safety in the face of dangers that are real and immediate is the process of a rational mind

Joseph Heller

1961 was a good year for individualism. Joseph Heller’s Catch-22, eight years in the making, was finally published.(link) Robert Heinlein thumbed his nose at the officious editor who’d persistently harried him on the silliest pretexts, and penned Stranger in a Strange Land, wherein Jubal Harshaw confesses: 

My dear, I used to think I was serving humanity… and I pleasured in the thought. Then I discovered that humanity does not want to be served; on the contrary it resents any attempt to serve it. –Robert Heinlein

Today we vividly remember 2001 as not at all like Arthur C. Clarke predicted. Instead of moon colonies we again got murdering religious fanatics on a rampage combining racial collectivism and mystical eugenics. Yet that was only 19 years ago. In 1961 people remembered with equal vividness the 1941 attack on Pearl Harbor two decades earlier. Like when initiation of force and faith brought on the Prohibition and Capitation Tax Amendments, along with World War One. This was followed in two decades by the 1940s alliance of murdering religious fanatics on a rampage combining racial collectivism and mystical eugenics–and brought an eerily familiarity, disconcerting to grownups at the time.

Freedom is Slavery

Making the world safe for christian altruist eugenicism

In 1945 the true meaning of Positive Christian altruism, of “the common good before the individual good” was discovered amid starvation and lice. The value of the accepted Eugenic premise that altruism and good were the same thing suddenly had become way too clear when Russian and American troops discovered death camps in and all around Germany.  Many of them eventually read Atlas Shrugged, which included a non-aggression pledge penned by Ayn Rand while nazi war criminals were sorted out between the gallows and prison cells. That was at Chapter Ten of an eleven-year writing process. But in 1961, Atlas Shrugged was a new book people had only just read. That was 63 years ago. 

All those who place their faith in fire...

Blind faith, fanaticism and the initiation of deadly force, ergo this

In 2001 Soviet communism had collapsed ten years earlier. In 2020, the Libertarian Party approaches its 50th anniversary. American communism pervading the media and Democratic Party, and American nationalsocialist prohibitionism pervading the Republican Party, are dying.(link) Both chose altruism and the initiation of force as standards of value and correctness. Both are better off gone. 

Hockey stick for Libertarians!

Libertarian vote share after Bush asset-forfeiture crash

Just as oil replaced coal, wood and dead whales, and bytes replaced CDs, cassettes and vinyl records, the Libertarian Party is replacing dangerous fossils the way democracies replaced monarchies, sultanates and sheikdoms a century ago.(link) It is replacing the Kleptocracy with a government–not anarchism–to secure individual rights, and not a moment too soon. Heinlein noted that “Man, as a social animal, can no more escape government than the individual can escape bondage to his bowels.” He also observed in a very nuclear age that “Each sunrise is a precious jewel… for it may never be followed by its sunset.” I you vote for the initiation of force, you will probably get exactly what you voted for.
