Sore Loser Backstabbing

Competent questioner and sore loser

Back when Nixon had betrayed the Second Amendment to ingratiate Soviet Dictator Brejnev, the pro-defense crowd jokingly referred to PBS as the Public Brainwashing System. Newspapers censored out all outlier criticism of the political Kleptocracy and National Socialist Radio ran a paganistic slanting campaign cheerfully tolerated by past victims of Republican National Socialism.

Above, you have the culmination of Nixon’s Anti-Libertarian Law subsidizing entrenched looter parties at the expense of science and education. The questioner is uncannily accurate and well-prepared, while the victim of fanatical girl-bulliers who took over the GOP in an ersatz Positive Christian Front reveals himself an incompetent fraud. Women voters now know their strength, and it’s good riddance to the Gee-Oh-Pee!

Disclosure: I voted for Libertarian Candidate Gary Johnson in 2016, and my mail-in Texas ballot was not counted because of some fool deadline you’ve never heard of.

Libertarian Defense Caucus, June 1981

Second Amendment Rights, 1930

American Defense, Letter to the Editor

Letters to the Editor

Hank Phillips Austin, Texas

“I am also in favor of spending more on defense—as much more as we can afford.”
—Ayn Rand, April 26th 1981 (from The Objectivist Forum, June 1981, p. 1)

Ayn Rand is no longer with us, but her ideas and scholarly contributions to philosophy will live forever. The battle for freedom will only be lost if we fail to pick up those tools and forge the future ourselves. If we don’t, it will be a default on our part. The most useless and damaging tactic which can possibly be used is the appropriation of an opponent’s incorrect premises in an attempt to refute an argument which is in fact valid, but wrong because of its faulty premises.

This is the sort of travesty that emerges when libertarians hasten to agree that nuclear explosives are “fiendish” or “evil” weapons, but that they are necessary for a deterrent. The question I pose is: Evil? By what standard?

The so-called “moral” objections to nuclear weapons per se are always based on the Argument from Intimidation, in which the premises are never clearly stated but sort of assumed on an “everybody knows” basis, The trick, is successful when an opponent submits to the pressure and grants the premise without ever examining it closely enough to see what it really is….

The function of a proper government is the protection of individual rights. This is accomplished by means of an objectively defined set of laws prohibiting theft, fraud, violence, and their derivatives such as extortion and slavery. This function includes providing for the common defense as well as the establishment of justice. A capitalist government is not empowered to use force except in retaliation. Our government has moved some distance from this ideal but the potential to set it right back with laissez-faire exists. An amendment prohibiting the government from passing any laws restricting or abridging the freedom of trade and production is all that is needed to guarantee the process.

The Union of Soviet Socialist Republics is a socialist system. The documents on which it was built, and the philosophical framework from which those documents were derived are virtually identical to those upon which both Benito Mussolini’s Fascist Party and Adolf Hitler’s National Socialist Party were founded. Comparing the original documents shows that the terms “right-wing” and “left­wing” serve to connote infinitesimally small differences between what are all totalitarian systems founded in socialism using the philosophical premises of altruism. Each and every one of these statist systems relies totally on the initiation of deadly force in order to achieve its goals. Those same original documents also make very clear the fact that the protection of individual rights is no part of their plan.

We therefore have two entirely different systems to reckon with in planning strategy, one of which is retaliatory and the other of which relies tor its very existence on the initiation of force. The historic record bears this out, as the Soviet state dominates country after country by means of murder and coercion in general. It is this crucial difference which the submissivists seek to obscure when calling for cutbacks in American defenses. Those who remember National Socialism will never be fooled by these evasions,

The fusion bomb originated in the mind of Edward Teller, a Jewish scientist who has had his fill of both the Soviet Socialist and Hitler’s National Socialist governments. It is the tool which enables men of reason to maintain their freedom in the face of totalitarian mobs of whatever size. As such, it can only be regarded as a good thing. Still, Teller is attacked just as Prometheus was and the gift is made to look like something “fiendish and inhumane,” notably by those whose notion of the proper function of government is such that they have good cause to fear it.

Let’s dispense with the “moral” objection first. This was best summed up by Louis Ridenour: “Once it is decided that people are to be killed, the ‘moral’ question is fully settled; the instruments of that killing are not at all affected with any moral or humane questions.”   (“The Hydrogen Bomb”, Scientific American, March 1150, p. 14) Ayn Rand reiterated this point when she stated that “morality ends where the gun begins”. Judging by the glee with which they use deadly gases against primitive tribesmen, we can expect the officials of the Soviet state to have very few qualms about using nuclear weapons as long as they think they can get away with it. Which brings us to the real moral question: the issue of Justice,

Whenever any altruist accuses an individual of being “heartless”, what he really means is that that person is just. In law, the function of justice is to provide restitution where possible and make good and sure that something happens to the criminal such that another will think twice before committing a like misdeed. If an American-launched first strike against the U.S.S.R. constitutes mass-murder, then the reverse is also true. It is the solemn duty of the U.S. government to disarm the aggressor and administer swift and effective justice in such an event. If both of these things happen in one fell swoop, so much the better. Submissivists who dress up in libertarian drag are fond of pointing out that this would affect innocent bystanders. The fact of the matter is that there has never been a war in which all non- combatants escaped all harm, Archimedes of Syracuse faced this issue when, unable to sink enemy ships without drowning the slaves chained to the oars, he sank them nevertheless. To have done otherwise would have constituted sacrifice: the substitution of that which you do not value, or value less, for that which you value.

Finally, there is the allegation that nuclear weapons could wipe out humanity. With a little arithmetic, anyone can verify that there are enough bullets (or hatpins, for that matter) in existence today to kill every man, woman, and child on Earth several times over. When this same exercise in pedantry is applied to nuclear weapons, the result is inevitably followed by a chorus of gasps. Since bullets and hatpins are ineffective defenses against slaver states, nobody seems too worried about them. With nuclear weapons, this spurious result is used as an excuse for claiming that the concept of a deterrent force is invalid and that any attempt to make our forces redundant enough to pose a formidable threat even after they have been hit, and hit hard, constitutes a “race to oblivion”.

In the real world, things are exactly the opposite. While it is true that an exchange of nuclear weapons would produce many casualties, the object of the game, at least from the capitalist standpoint, is to avoid the war in the first place. If we have only a few more weapons than the Soviet state has before they attack us, we stand to find ourselves in a real sorry position after their attack. In response to this, we end up adopting a “fire-on-warning” attitude which actually increases the likelihood of an accidental war. By making certain that there is no way that anyone can disarm the U.S., no matter how well planned the sneak attack, we will do away with the possibility of both intentional and accidental war.

So far, I’ve dealt only with the methods of argumentation which are used to disarm America by default. Neologisms such as the term “superpowers,” which blur the distinction between the different types of government are the most subtle, while bald-faced lies and invalid calculations serve as backups. One aspect which I never see discussed is the problem of secrecy.

In dealing with the threat from a system which is fundamentally irrational, it is in our interest to maintain secrecy, especially where our tactics and weapons are concerned. I once developed a tactic for nuclear weapons strategy and sought out a physicist for evaluation of the feasibility of the plan. He informed me that someone else had already thought of this particular trick and that it was classified information. Naturally, I forgot all about it. The lesson I learned, however, is that things are not as simple as the published information would lead one to believe. If push does come to shove, both sides are in for many surprises. The sad part is that those who know the most about the issue of modern war can contribute very little to the debate without running the risk of giving away secrets.

Because of this, and also because I trust their judgment and integrity, I tend to give the benefit of the doubt to American military strategists in areas fraught with dispute. Still, the best guide is your own rational judgement based on as many of the facts, both historic and technical, as you can integrate. Some of the books which have helped me to understand the situation we face are: Fear, War and the Bomb by P.M.S. Blackett, Modern Arms and Free Men by Vannevar Bush, On Thermonuclear War by Herman Kahn, and Nuclear War Survival Skills by Cresson Kearney, The first three can be found at used book stores for very little (I paid $7 for all three). The last is a civil defense manual which is available by mail from the American Security Council Press, Boston, Virginia 22713 for $9, It may very well save your life in the event that we fail in our efforts to avoid war without giving up our freedom.

Libertarian Candidate Speech

Drones on the government payroll were increasing before 1972

Hello fellow voters,
My name is Libertarian Candidate and I’m here to ask for your vote, but I am not asking you to vote for me personally. I’m not a politician. Like you, I work for a living and want more opportunities for the next generation. What I want you to do is vote for yourself. This is an entirely different thing from what our opponents want. I want you to understand that by voting for the Libertarian platform you leave the antique parties no choice but to repeal many of the bad laws and taxes they’ve passed in two centuries. Here’s the Libertarian website.(www.lp.org) There you can download a podcast of our party platform. Our platform takes only 20 minutes to listen to or read.(link in Portuguese) Our adversaries do not ask you to read or hear their platform, much less compare it with ours, which is only six pages.

My opponents want you to believe that you will benefit when they take your earnings to buy votes from people who want higher taxes and more regulations, subsidies and handouts.(link) I believe the opposite.
I benefit when you earn your own money and spend it the way you choose. Like you, I understand that the looter parties have already taxed and squandered fortunes. If you believed they kept their promises you wouldn’t be here. I’m not asking you to throw good votes after bad. I ask for your vote because if you vote Libertarian, you win.
What is winning?

Decreasing bureaucrats with Libertarian Party votes

Winning is causing the entrenched, tax-subsidized political parties to repeal the taxes and prohibitions they have been increasing all your life at the expense of your freedom to choose. Winning is increasing freedom.(link) The Federal payroll was expanding before the Libertarian Party entered the 1972 race. Now the trendline shows it is shrinking. (source, OPM)

You win when you invest your honest vote as marketable goods and use that vote to let politicians know what you want. Every time one drone loses to another by 2% when our candidate got 3% of the vote, their politicians and judges read our platform and try to imitate us to get those votes away from the other gang. By voting for freedom you set a good example for politicians and judges to follow–whenever they vote instead of you.

For two centuries tiny parties of religious fanatics and socialist agitators have run candidates and gotten roughly 2 or 3 percent of the vote. Those spoiler votes often made the difference between winner and loser because both shopworn parties are trying to ensnare the same voters. They changed the Constitution, but unfortunately made it worse.

Did you know that the Prohibition Party averaged 1.4% of the vote in ten presidential campaigns? That was enough to pass the Prohibition Amendment.(link) Socialist populists averaged 2.3% of the vote and over the course of five presidential elections moved the income tax from the communist manifesto to the Constitution. Together those amendments caused the Great Depression.(link) Only now, since 1972, have voters had the opportunity to consistently vote for less coercion and more freedom.

In the 1972 election the Libertarian Party got fewer than 4000 individual votes, but those votes convinced the Supreme Court to repeal the Comstock laws and legalize birth control for women.(link) Remember the draft? Our platform called for its repeal. The last draft call was one month after that election, on December 7, 1972. Authority for drafting young men ended June 30, 1973. Four thousand Libertarian votes ended hundreds of bad laws and increased freedom for Americans. Recently we earned four million votes in a presidential election and many more in down-ballot races.(link) A few of us actually get elected, which helps convince the looter parties to more quickly adopt our policies in order to keep their paychecks. Look how quickly they now scramble to stop cops from shooting kids over plant leaves.

To them it is the difference between spending your earnings and having to get a real job. I already have a job, and if I wanted socialism or religious rule I’d move to Europe or Asia. I am running for office to make machine politicians study and learn from the Libertarian party’s commitment to letting freedom help us all.(link) With your leveraged vote, you and I both can increase freedom by reducing coercion.(link) Don’t forget to tell your friends about our free recordings of the 20-minute platform, and urge them to compare before they vote.

Voluntarily yours,
Libertarian C. Candidate (the C stands for Cheerful)

German Spoiler Parties

As alcohol prohibition destroyed the U.S. economy, Germany’s
enjoyable drug exports were also sharply curtailed. (link)

Some German corporations were confiscated and auctioned in the U.S. during America’s frenzy of prohibitionism. “If anyone enjoys it, ban it!” That was the attitude of the Anti-Saloon League, Methodist Board of Temperance, Prohibition and Government Morals and similar lobbies of officious, self-appointed “experts.” Addictive was left undefined, and is bandied about with promiscuous irrelevance to this day, so that South American stimulants were lumped in with stupefacient opiates. When federal prosecutor Mabel Walker Willebrandt was appointed to enforce prohibition, she ended up unwittingly lynching the U.S. economy in labors to ban the wrong kind of production and trade.

Prohibitionism is ancient. Four enforcement wars left China in ruins, with a death toll on a par with the entire U.S. population presided by Lincoln. England, France, Austro-Hungary, Germany, and others produced, refined and exported exotic drugs, then went at each other’s throats in 1914 to prevent ratification of an American-pushed Anti-opium convention. American politicians reacted to the post-1911 glut with the Harrison Act which, once enacted, became a Mr Hyde to terrorize physicians and enrich corporate producers. Anything the government bans becomes roughly four times as expensive and avoids taxes–so selling a fourth as much is more profitable than moving the original amounts.

Willebrandt changed the postwar equation by using the freshly-minted 16th-Amendment income tax to tax illegal incomes, 5th Amendment be hanged! When she won the Manly Sullivan case out of Charleston in May 1927, European stock prices changed to decreasing. American beer barons were soon being convicted for tax evasion as Europeans watched uneasily. Asset-forfeiture confiscations drove money from banks and threw the economy into liquidity crises. The year 1928 opened with the Navy blockading the entire coast of Florida, where Al Capone had a mansion with a boat slip. Only Willebrandt spoke of tax-enforcement of all laws banning production and trade–whether of alcohol, stimulants or narcotics–in her syndicated 1929 newspaper exposé series. Everyone but Clark Warburton struggled to evade the subject.

Could enjoyable drug exports have helped Germany pay war reparations, rebuild, rearm and seek revenge? Did major drug busts affect the German economy the way liquor law enforcement brought on the Great Depression? There is way too much coincidence connecting U.S. and League of Nations enforcement actions to German, French and British economic troubles in the interwar period. League of Nations agitation for the “Narcotic Limitation Convention” increased as Germany slowly collapsed in the wake of it’s own 10 December 1929 enactment of the Act for the Control of the Traffic in Narcotics. Everyone remembers THAT law being enacted right at the beginning of The Great Depression, right? So why not recall also the 13 July 1931 Narcotic Convention that brought German unemployment to 20% and reduced her per capita GNP by 17%–and cut collective GNP by one-fourth?

Joe Biden is a big fan of superstitious laws demonizing people over plant leaves and flowers. Here’s his most recent Executive Order sending Texas-style lynch mobs after free-trading individuals.(link) This other EO resembles post-1933 German legislation aimed at persecuting Jews.(link)

For additional reading on this topic, 1931 Debt, Crisis and the Rise of Hitler, by Tobias Straumann (link) rehashes Peter Temin’s 2001 working paper “Made In Germany.” Both display the doublethink by which government-remora “economists” manage to ignore the suppression of Germany’s copious exports of opiates and stimulants, and focus entirely on the resulting financial collapse as if the prohibitionist legislation were some unrelated nonentity and the Crash a deus-ex-machina miracle that coincided by happenstance with the world around it.

Elon Musk, Libertarian?

I miss Ziggy. Clout is the leverage
by which votes change laws.

Engineering students realize that clear definitions bring good grades. Nobody needs to explain to Elon Musk that political power is the time derivative of the capacity to kill lots of people. Yet even engineers, immersed in and subjected from all sides to organized social pressure, often have trouble grasping the essentials of spoiler vote clout. Still, it is all around us. (link)

Spoiler clout
Socialists lost, yet their income tax won.
Looter parties averaged 5% of the vote and by
1916 imported the income tax from Manifesto plank 2
Progressive votes are apportioned. Note the low trendline.

Small parties back then all sought power to coerce. Libertarians seek rights, but the leveraged power of spoiler votes has not changed. Libertarians cast fewer than 4000 votes in 1972, but 4 million in 2016. In 1972 Nixon sent enslaved youths to bomb women and kids in distant countries. Today there is no draft, and way fewer soldiers are sent by Republican and Democrat party politicians to rain down bombs on the other side of the planet without a declaration of war. Our platforms also called for repeal of plant leaf prohibition laws. Now, after fifty years in which Libertarian votes increased a thousandfold, way fewer people per capita are shot because of plant leaves on orders from politicians. These are two examples of incremental change brought about by individual voters who effectively prefer freedom to violence.

What is Government?

Soundbyte in Elon Musk interview ends with bovine incomprehension on the part of interviewer. Then again, roughly 96% of voters do not understand any part of “monopoly on violence” or “capital allocation” watch:

I found this over at ZeroHedge, the only reliable source of financial news I can afford. I’ve followed this site for years and have noticed that whenever intellectuals of the looter persuasion cannot evade noticing ZeroHedge, they tarbrush it with a string of adjectives that invariably includes “right wing.” (link) Investors who understand that government is a monopoly on violence value ZeroHedge as a source of information, even humor.

Since we are on the topic of definitions, “right-wing” as an adjective is an imported European expression that means “religious socialist.” Europeans can imagine only socialism and–inside the same Venn Diagram–National Socialism and communist anarchism. That’s it. A satisfactory definition of government itself was first published by a European socialist in 1919:

“Today, however, we have to say that a state is a human community that (successfully) claims the monopoly of the legitimate use of physical force within a given territory. Note that ‘territory’ is one of the characteristics of the state. Specifically, at the present time, the right to use physical force is ascribed to other institutions or to individuals only to the extent to which the state permits it.” –Max Weber (altruist socialist who imagined that ideal and egoistic were antonyms) link

1940s American poster

Musk simply translated what Weber said into terse, idiomatic American. Observe that the immediate reaction of the looter mentality is bovine incomprehension. This is because in The Kleptocracy translation, the title of Weber’s essay ought to have been Politics as Equivocation.

Vote for da Rapper

Everyone who voted against freedom and for the looter Kleptocracy may end up like those who voted to ratify the Income Tax Amendment and the Prohibition Amendment. South America used to have deficit spending politicians too…

Who Wrote Roe v. Wade?

Population has doubled since Libertarian plank of 1972

1972 LP platform plank: “We further support the repeal of all laws restricting voluntary birth control or voluntary termination of pregnancies during their first hundred days.” No other American party platform had anything to say that subject when the election was held in November. Libertarian party earned just under 4000 popular votes plus one electoral vote from a state that wouldn’t let Libertarians on their ballot, thanks to Roger MacBride’s gallant refusal to cast an electoral vote for Richard Nixon on 06JAN1973.

Sixteen days after the Electoral votes were counted, the Supreme Court decision of 22JAN1973 began with (a) For the stage prior to approximately the end of the first trimester, the abortion decision and its effectuation must be left to the medical judgment of the pregnant woman’s attending physician.

Some might figure that “approximately” as 84 days (12 weeks) or 93 days (three 31-day months). Either way comes to week or two short of the Libertarian Party platform’s “first hundred days.” Yet to Libertarian magazine writer Jacob Sullum there is evidently nothing but coincidence in the fact that the Supreme Court’s a-b-c “arbitrary” decision resulted in a bell curve practically centered on the LP recommendation of 100 days. Sullum has evidently given Roe v. Wade as much thought as Clarence Thomas had when his confirmation hearings began. Thomas had heard of Roe, but could recall no opinion on it, seemed to barely know Anita Hill and couldn’t have picked Long Dong Silver out of a lineup. Here’s a lady I’ll bet Sullum couldn’t pick out of a lineup.

A month before the LP repeal abortion laws plank, women performed where doctors feared to tread

The Supreme Court opened its 1972-73 term October 2, 1972, freshly packed with three Richard Nixon appointees, and decided it would again hear arguments from Austin, Texas, to the effect that the political State lacked authority to force women into the involuntary labor of childbirth against their will. That was, like The Pill, a direct affront to the Comstock laws of 1873, which made mother’s letter to her daughter about the rhythm method cause for ten years on a chain gang. TR’s 1902 “Race Suicide” letter declared anyone so shallow and selfish as to dislike having children “in effect a criminal against the race”… The Herbert Hoover administration barred all discussion of birth control, and the “Methodist White Terror” that H.L. Mencken derided stood as rigidly against individual rights for women as it had against beer, wine and The Demon Rum. Nor was the Libertarian party the first or second with the courage to stop the bullying of women.

Before 1st arguments on Roe, a 1970 peace, laissez-faire, anti-draft, relegalization and pro-choice Buffalo party was strangled in its crib.(link)

The Buffalo Party Festival–organized when Woodstock was showing at theaters in the U.S. and Canada–was followed by hasty enactment of laws banning all rock concerts. The pro-choice Human Rights party, which also participated in 1972 local elections alleged Kleptocracy cheating.(link) The Libertarian Party was one of three already defending the individual rights–even of young people–in 1972. Our fewer than 4000 spoiler votes evidently fostered repeal of bad laws that, through normal channels, would have required ten thousand times as many votes to amount to 50% of the total. That is leveraged spoiler vote clout–an ancient technique that got the communist income tax and fanatical religious criminalization of production and trade into the Constitution as Amendments 16 and 18 by a series of political parties of the looter persuasion. Observe:

Even before 1904, parties of the looter persuasion urged predatory taxation and economy-killing criminalization of trade.(link) The Great Depression was the result. The LP has repealed laws for 50 years, and with undamaged platform planks draws 4M votes in presidential and more than that in local elections. Those votes repeal rights-violating laws day in and day out, rain or shine, year after year.

Petr Beckmann observed in 1983 that the Supreme Court is a political child of its time. “For history shows the Supreme Court supremely flexible. It approved of slavery, of racism, of the unlawful mass imprisonment of US citizens for their Japanese origin, of protecting the guilty at the expense of their victims, and of a hundred other mockeries of justice.” The court allows ignorant and brainwashed State officials to rob and endanger utility ratepayers by suppressing nuclear technology to outlaw energy production. The Berkeley Daily Gazette for December 31, 1936 features an article titled Population Pressure Seen as Biological Cause of War, written when there were 40 persons per square mile.(link) Today there are 130 people per square mile of land area, and 215,000 people were added to the population yesterday.

Today’s race-suicide girl-bulliers and anti-energy fanatics will be tomorrow’s objects of pity and derision. Like the Demon Rum and Reefer Madness prohibitionists of a century ago–their initiation of force could again wreck the economy–if not civilization.

Real Global Snowfall Trend

This is Libertariantranslator’s attempt to repost a reproducible scientific measurement by Zoe Phin. The original post is well worth visiting.(link) This is actual science by someone who shows her work, and includes the code needed to verify it is accurate in its derivation.

*** Here’s Zoe:

In a previous post, I tried measuring the global snowfall trend over the last 41 years using a pixel color technique because I couldn’t find the original data behind NASA’s public images. I have now found the higher resolution data needed to find the most accurate global snowfall trend.

The data is from here1. The results are very different, but the direction of the trend remains. It turns out that I had greatly underestimated the positive trend in snowfall by nearly 2.5x.

Here is the real global snowfall trend:

See? Visit the original and voilá! Data show snowfall is increasing despite the subsidized hot air expelled by unnamed scientist impersonators.(link)

Bernard Cohen’s article, The Disposal of Radioactive Wastes from Fission Reactors disabused me of brainwashing and propaganda which at the time were everywhere on and off of campus.(link) By the time a reactor on Three Mile Island acted up with a stuck valve, killing and injuring nobody, the looter media had quietly ignored another 79,000 premature deaths caused by pollution from coal-fired power plants. Much anti-nuclear propaganda was imported and parroted by scientist impersonators such as John Gofman, Jane Fonda, Ralph Nader, Amory Lovins, Paul Ehrlich, Henry Kendall, George Wald, Helen Caldicott, Daniel Ellsberg, Barry Commoner, Richard Hubbard, John Cobb, Hugo Sternglass, John Holdren and perhaps a dozen other scientist impersonators, ex-scientists and weak-minded Quislings converted into enemy agents by The Kleptocracy.(link) Here is a current analysis of similar machinations, albeit by a “conservative” devoutly committed to the initiation of deadly force against freethinkers and libertarians.(link)

I can easily understand how a coercive, mixed-economy Kleptocracy descended but lately from mystical monarchism given to torture, burning of heretics, violent prohibitionism, fascist girl-bullying and Creation Superstition has no trouble conjuring up a host of enemies. But none of that makes the enemies–or their proffered cures–any better than the host suffering from such brood parasitism. Soviet socialism has proven itself the same thing as Hitlerian nationalsocialism. Both sprang from altruistic German collectivism and are distinguishable only when one notices the latter is more deeply steeped in Bellamy and Lutheran hatred of all things Jewish. How different was the American Liberal Party in its 1931 platform:

Heard mention of this party lately?(link)

The Liberal Party aims at the dissolution of the Ku Klux Klan, because that society, suppressing the social and political rights of Jews, Catholics, and Negroes, is a foul vulture that is eating the heart out of the body politic; and when it was in its greatest power it continued to enroll new thousands in its membership through the encouragement which Mr. Ford gave to its propaganda with his senseless campaign of libel against the Jews.
Recent statistics based upon the census reports show that the population of the United States is nearly 125 million, some eighteen million of which are Catholics, ten million Jews, with about twenty-two million in all the Protestant churches, leaving us with the significant conclusion that some seventy-five million of our people are entirely without church affiliations of any kind. This great majority of our citizens, in the main, have no other wish than to live pleasant and useful lives, unshackled from Draconian statutes, yet they are forced to sit still and feel the chains of slavery growing constantly heavier because a small but compact and pitiless minority of ministers, supported by a narrow following, are slowly but surely, a step at a time, enacting their ideas of public morals into the laws of this land.

Church, “The Liberal Party in America, pp. 9, 20

Sure enough, even after The Kleptocracy that helped Hitler rearm Germany lost its grip on the knout of prohibitionism, its policies have dragged America backwards toward another Great Depression and away from individual rights for citizens male and female. Only in 1972, when “libertarian” sprang from the writings of Mencken into the platform and electoral vote that freed women in These States and Canada from the coercive depredations of altruistic racial collectivism, nationalist eugenic distortions of ethics and thanatological genocide and from there into the Supreme Court decision that ended Comstockism, did individual rights again become a thing in These Sovereign States. Let’s hold onto them this time. Choose Libertarian delegates committed to individual rights, not foreign terrorism, anarchist communism or warfare against the Bill of Rights.(link)

The U.S. Constitution is terse and thoughtful, and the reason the Libertarian movement originated in America. Try establishing a Libertarian Party under a 90,000-word junta “Constitution” and you will appreciate the distinction. In Canada and the U.S. there is nothing more effective than the leveraged clout of an individual’s vote for a proper Libertarian Party.(link)
