German Libertarian in English

English, German and Dutch are in the same family of languages. See Naomi in German (link)
Welcome to the world of people who not only think, but do it in two languages!

Finally! Germany is waking up to alternatives to genocidal national versus international socialism and noticing other parts of the Venn Diagram and Nolan Chart.

Since 1972 the Libertarian Party has advocated for repealing cruel laws passed by religious fanatics to torture and criminalize gays. We also advocate abolition of coercive manipulation of fuel markets to cater to imaginary energy hobgoblins created by collectivist pseudoscience. Girl-bullying conservatives are trying to claim Naomi, but she self-identifies as libertarian in her own words.(link)

This hasn’t stopped ecological national socialists and watermelon greens from flinging innuendo to paint the youngster as a brainwashed religious zealot eager to join male Landover Baptists to deny individual rights to women. Washington Post fake news seeks to depict the libertarian lady as a racial collectivist. Both character assassination attempts have been pitiful and dodge the issue of what thermometers have to say about temperature trends.(link)

Conservatives have men point service pistols at doctors and pregnant women.(link) This they justify with mystical and race-suicide claptrap.(link) They also seek to have uniformed police and plainclothes criminal shoot people over plant leaves, and they believe the world is warming when thermometers say it isn’t.(link)

Interestingly, Naomi self-identifies as Libertarian on a number of different videos, but pulpit-thumping, girl-bullying, doctor-shooting conservatives insist on hearing “conservative” every time she says “libertarian.” Why?

YES WE CAN SAY NO!

Country Joe and the Fish Intergalactic Fan Club

It’ll kick in soon, just you wait, it takes time…

THERE WAS A TIME WHEN YOU COULDN’T just say no to violent aggression. In the 1920s mystical fanatics sought to pressure and intimidate voters into having someone point guns at people over beer or plant leaf soakings. This immediately wrecked the economy until gentlemen’s agreements between producers and government agents took effect in early 1923.(link)

But increased penalties soon crashed the economy, and until 1931 there was no way to vote no on having people robbed and shot. If you voted Democratic, that was a vote for low tariffs, but also for debased currency and white supremacist racial collectivism. If you voted Republican, that was a vote for the gold standard, but also for shooting and robbing the peaceful, high excise and income taxes, and helping Germany spend money on armaments rather than pay reparations for damages wrought during The Great War. There were communist-socialist infiltrators and even native brainwashees, of course, offering more prohibition and tax laws and amendments, but nobody offering freedom from coercion.(link)

It was the Liberal Party platform of 1931 that tackled the Eighteenth Amendment head-on and demanded it be repealed along with the Volstead Act, Blue Laws and the ban on Sunday baseball games.(link) Liberals sought to make divorce safe and legal, and were absolutely opposed to Ku-Klux collectivism and Comstock laws. And guess what? There was a Gentleman’s Agreement.(link) Rather than run against those spoiler votes and lose to the Republicans, the Democrats copied the Liberal Party repeal plank into their own platform and won five consecutive presidential elections with nary a Crash nor added Depression wrecking the economy.(link)

So when next a Republican shrieks that Bernie is going to open gulags in North Dakota and Maine unless your vote helps God’s Own Prohibitionists ban contraceptives, shoot more teen-agers, wreck more economies in Latin America, export more fascism and bomb more ignorant wretches on the other side of the planet, remember that YES WE CAN SAY NO.(link)

Democrats no less agitated will grab your cuff with predictions that God’s Own Prohibitionists will grab pussy, ban birth control pills, appoint Klan judges, boil away the polar ice caps and bring yet another Asset-Forfeiture Crash and Depression as in 1929, 1987 and 2008–unless you help them ban electric generation plants, customs inspections, take-home pay and automobiles. Again, YES YOU CAN JUST SAY NO. How? (link)

We wrote the Roe v Wade decision!

A brief history of libertarian spoiler vote clout. Our 4.4 million presidential votes (equal to the State of Virginia) were only about a fifth of the LP votes captured in 2016.

BY VOTING LIBERTARIAN! 

The LP looks for ways to NOT point guns at people. Our non-aggression principle and platform is that simple. Libertarians understand that pointing guns at non-violent citizens is the gateway to massacres, gulags, Kristallnacht, Auschwitz, Treblinka, The Killing Fields, Ukraine famines, People’s Temple suicides, wars, racial strife, collectivist coercion, asset-forfeiture confiscations, Crashes and Great Depressions that lead to unemployment, taxation and more force-initiating laws.

HOCKEY STICK ANYONE?

This graph fits LP presidential votes to the logistic replacement curve that shows how cassettes and CDs replaced vinyl, how elections replaced monarchies.

No our candidates don’t often get elected and begin shouting out orders in the Senate. Instead our candidates make it possible for… YES, YOU to send a clout-packing spoiler-vote message to The Political State Just Saying No to force, intimidation, murder, robbery, parasitism, war, treachery, censorship, rights infringement, girl-bullying, pull-peddling, election rigging, subsidized vote corruption, graft, ugly gimme caps and exportation of destabilizing fascist policies.

Libertarian spoiler votes state this clearly, with no strings, and DEFEAT the more brutal of two looters running for that same office. Over a hundred of our candidates actually hold office, and that scares the crap living daylights out of looters of both wings of the communo-fascist persuasion. 

Suckers and cowards settle for one vote out of 129 million and end up with Trump, Obama, Bush, Clinton, drug wars, terrorist attacks, maimed veterans, high taxes, dead cops, dead kids, inflation, prohibitionism, Crashes and Depressions. Libertarians pull the slot machine handle on one vote out of 4 million, and get roughly 30 times the law-changing clout for that vote. It takes a special kind of stupid to miss that chance.

That realization is why our vote share–barring idiotic 5th column planks to wreck our platform–increases by about 80% per year right now. With this we bring you legalization, tax cuts, individual rights, peace, choice, freer markets, and the withering away of the initiation of harmful, deadly and coercive force. We replace that force with freedom from coercion, and we accomplish all this one vote at a time.

North Carolina LP Growth

Roe v Wade Libertarian victory

Pro-choice NC Libertarian Party performance

by Brad Hessel, copied from their Facebook page
Another year, another new all-time record for the Libertarian Party of North Carolina.

In a year in which the number of registered voters overall in NC declined by 4%—due to the usual off-election year purge of inactive voters—the number of registered Libertarians edged up 3% to a new all-time high of 39,631 as of the end of 2019. In contrast, the number of Democrats declined 7% year-over-year, Republicans lost 4%, and even the number of independent (“unaffiliated”) voters declined by 1%.

The 2019 purge was the second biggest in the last 26 years (as far back as our annual data go), exceeded only by a 5% reduction in the voter rolls in 2001. The declines were the worst ever for the Ds, second worst ever for the Us, and tied for second worst for the Rs during that time span. It was also the slowest annual growth rate recorded for the LPNC (excepting the three years we were off the ballot, the number of registered Ls in NC has never declined year-over-year).

Bucking the trend were the two new parties: the number of Green party members was up 90% in 2019 to 1,938 and the Constitutionalists did even better, up 217% to 2,786. The Greens—who had a head start in 2018—started the year ahead of the Constitutionalists, but are now decidedly eating the latters’ dust.

Looking at the entire quarter century, the LPNC continues to lead the pack with a robust compounded annual growth rate of 14% compared to 8% for independents, 2% for Republicans, and 1% for Democrats. The Rs and Ds are consistently failing to keep pace with the overall 3% CAGR for the number of voters. The Democrats have grown slower/declined faster than the overall number of voters 25 out of the last 26 years, only beating the average in 2008 thanks to Barack Obama. The Republicans have beaten the average 11 times…but their last win was in 2004 and they are currently on a 15-year losing streak.

Overall, the percentage of voters registered as either D or R—the “Ubinger rating”—fell to an all-time low of 66.58% at the end of 2019, down (as it has been every year for 26 years in a row) from 91.87% in 1993. ***

Libertarian organizations like the NCLP are what brought us the pro-choice hockey stick vote share growth tracked by Fisher-Pry and other logistic growth curves.

History shows us that a growing small party gets its platform plagiarized by both halves of the entrenched kleptocracy. Every time votes flow away from a decayed and derelict political party, its swineherds get the message no amount of self-deception can distort.  Laws change as a result. The technical term for causing the looters to change bad laws is winning.

Smearing Libertarians

bomb-throwing communist anarchist terrorist REPEAT

Constant repetition: anarchists, bomb-hurling anarchists

Republican journalist James Kilpatrick was among the first to gain media subsidies via the Nixon anti-Libertarian law for this piece. Consistent with the Prohibition Party and George Wallace Dixiecrats coalition the GOP was reduced to after the Kennedy assassinations, the kleptocracy’s pet journalist called us anarchists. Meanwhile the GOP platform committee sweated to draft force Amendments to overturn Roe v Wade and change the meaning of the first three words of the 14th Amendment: All persons born…

Here is Kilpatrick with The Gipper, the day after Federal plant leaf prohibitionist policies and H.R. 3226 did for hippies what the Kristallnacht laws did for Jewish shopkeepers. Money “Laundering” as pretext for asset forfeiture was next on Congress’ agenda, as Veterans Administration personnel were being fired in the Just Say No blood purity pogrom.

In less than a month this ramp-up of prohibitionist fanaticism would cause the stock market to drop 108 points in a day, cost investors half a trillion dollars, and usher in another Great Depression.

For more on how the initiation of force wielded by mystical fanaticism wrecked the economy in the Herbert Hoover Administration, order Prohibition and The Crash–Cause and Effect in 1929 in Amazon Kindle format. For the cost of a pint you’ll have undistorted history on a cellphone or tablet in your choice of English or Portuguese.

Clarity isn’t oversimplification

The Anarchy Fallacy

division by zero is wrong

Approaching 0 is different from putting 0 in the denominator.

A theory popular among folks who never cracked a logic or math book was that anarchism is “the logical end-product” of communism. That changed in 1972 when under 4000 Libertarian votes for John Hospers and Toni Nathan generated one consistent and uncorrupted electoral vote and changed important laws. Nowadays, intellectuals of the looter persuasion din everyone within earshot with the amended revealed truth that anarchism is “the logical end-product” of liberalism or libertarianism. Orwell commented on this sort of flip-flop when he explained how English socialists abhorred nationalsocialism until the Hitler-Stalin pact–AFTER which they promptly granted that fascism was, after all, a form of socialism, hence not all that bad.

Before trying to axiomatize a thing, it pays to examine what the thing does and doesn’t mean to begin with. There were communist anarchists all over the map, firing shots and exploding bombs in crowded places, when Max Weber spun off an objective and useful definition of government as “a human community that (successfully) claims the monopoly of the legitimate use of physical force within a given territory”.

The typically Germanic purpose Weber attributed to this “community,” however, was “the use of physical force as a means of domination”–the opposite of what libertarians want. To be legitimate, our use of force ought to be retaliatory–the response to aggression, to menacing–rather than initiated. The idea is to defend the rights of individuals, their moral claims to freedom of action, and nothing else. Weber also took pains to remind his students: “Note that ‘territory’ is one of the characteristics of the state.” Looters are apt to grasp this precisely because they are the ones bent on domination by force. Weber also makes clear that “expropriation” is part and parcel of the domination by force he described in 1919.

The Libertarian Party was founded by admirers of Ayn Rand’s ideas, in particular, her ethical approach to the use of force within the context of limited constitutional democracy. In April of 1942 she wrote the non-aggression principle, which in 1971 was distilled into a pledge required for membership in the Libertarian Party. Every libertarian partisan has signed this Non-Aggression Pledge:

I certify that I oppose the initiation of force to achieve political or social goals.

The objective definition of government, including its territoriality feature, survived, but the purpose Weber wrote down–which Hitler exploited to form the NSDAP a year later–is today discarded. After all, most German voters were convinced National Socialism was successful after 18 years, but that theory did not survive past 25 years of age.

America’s lasting success comes from the word “free.” In the First and Second Amendments, free means free from aggressive coercion in a literal sense. This also symbolizes right (as opposed to wrong) in an ethical sense. In These States, an individual life worth living is the objective standard of value. Hence, the forcible defense (enforcement) of individual rights–thwarting their forcible violation–is the sole purpose of legitimate government. The LP’s growing success stems from this demonstrably desirable standard of ethical value.

You cannot divide by zero instead of using the definition of a limit to find a derivative for the slope of a curve. On these sigmoid curves the derivative exists and changes sign at the halfway mark. Nor can you reduce to zero the territorial jurisdiction or definition of government and still enforce the rights of individuals. Rand said to ask yourself what competition in the forcible restraint of men has to mean. The answer, the monstrous answer which all communist infiltrators pretending to advocate for freedom struggle to evade, is war. War and death are what every anarchist seeks. So why else, other than hostile mimesis, would they infiltrate the LP?

If sabotage weren’t the motive, anarchists could be expected to organize the Anarchist Party of America, offer to legalize murder, robbery extortion, rape, slavery and disfigurement. Members could be encouraged to burn their voter registration cards. The party could field candidates who declare themselves opposed to the Constitution of the United States and eager to overthrow it by force rather than uphold it per an oath of office. I seriously wish more anarchists would clearly state their purpose. Their comrades could no longer infiltrate gullible parties, point to their own 5th-column provocateurs embedded within the the LP, and hiss “anarchists!”

When not infiltrating the LP, looter intellectuals wriggle to infiltrate pacifist movements. These are populated by folks who promise not to forcibly resist “domination”, nor to capture, try and punish those who aggress against them. In theory this leads to Aldous Huxley’s Island of Pala being invaded and dominated. In practice you observe it in the streets of India, Pakistan and Portland.

Our spoiler vote method of bringing pressure to bear paid off when the LP platform stopped Dixiecrats from restoring laws banning all birth control. Still, the momentum behind the population curve, though decelerating since that time, was huge. Hence the delay in reversing population growth, even though the derivative of the population curve has been negative since the late sixties.

Since 1972, socialism–especially in its communo-fascist variants–is reversing in these States because of Libertarian candidates supporting our platform and offering to support (but repair) the Constitution. Spoiler votes entrusted to these candidates cause entrenched “vocational” politicians of the kleptocracy to repeal brutal laws and lower parasitic taxes–that or be unseated by other looters quicker on the uptake. Our candidates don’t even need to be elected in order to change the laws. The Nixon law bribing the media to ignore us has slowed the process, but the replacement is going on with mathematical inexorability as the libertarian vote share increases.

See how the Liberal Party of 1930 gained enough spoiler votes to sell the Democrats on its repeal plank–after Republican fanaticism wrecked the economy. Prohibition and The Crash is live on Amazon Kindle for the cost of a pint of craft beer.

Dixiecrats v. Libertarian Party

Collectivist National Socialism

Wallace’s ‘Murrican Party platform carried 5 states and rewrote the GOP Bible

This just in:
A couple of months ago, the Arkansas state legislature, a.k.a. the Sahara of the Bozart, pulled some shenanigans and rapidly pushed through an “emergency bill” to make it nearly three times harder for us to get ballot access there. Why? Because Republicans are scared to compete with us.

Why else would so many Republican sockpuppets sign up as Reason Magazine commentators? Their mantra is the same fixed-pie mentality that is the foundation for communism. A vote for the LP is a vote “for” the same LIBERAL party that in 1930 added repeal of the 18th Amendment to its platform and helped the Dems win with it. That plank alone won the 1932 election plus five more.  Republican prohibitionists turned to Franklin Roosevelt’s enemies for help. The last thing the GOP wants is spoiler voters interested in individual rights costing them their political jobs, power, pelf and boodle.

Franklin Roosevelt’s enemies were German National Socialists. These were politicians of the very party Herbert Hoover had helped take over Germany by giving them a Moratorium on Brains in 1931. The moratorium excused Germany from paying war reparations to its victims and also from repaying loans taken from American suckers.  This so-called “standstill agreement” is right there in Atlas Shrugged, a book which, with the non-aggression principle, was written as nazis were tried and hanged in Nuremberg:

“The economic condition of the country was better the year before last than it was last year, and last year it was better than it is at present. It’s obvious that we would not be able to survive another year of the same progression. Therefore, our sole objective must now be to hold the line. To stand still in order to catch our stride. To achieve total stability. Freedom has been given a chance and has failed…. So we’ve got to stand still. We’ve got to stand still. We’ve got to make those bastards stand still!”

“The country” Wesley Mouch was referring to could easily have been Nazi Germany. In fact, we had come this close:

Republican National Socialism became ingrained after Dixiecrat spoiler votes nearly blocked Nixon’s election. George Wallace in effect rewrote the GOP platform just as Ralph Nader’s econazis rewrote the Democratic party platform after the y2k election. Today’s Republicans shout “liberal” in exactly the same tone as 1930s nationalsocialists shouted “liberal” and “Jew.” Some people have a hard time letting go of hillbilly superstitions.

Libertarian Saure Diethylamid

100 signatures sufficed for ballot access then and there

Another outside party turned up in 1970 opposed to aggression, conscription, prohibitionism, victimless crime laws and Comstock laws and in favor of relegalizing drugs. The obviously Libertarian Buffalo Party’s planks soon turned up in the platform of the Libertarian party. With fewer than 4000 votes the LP blocked Dixiecrat laws forcing women to reproduce against their will. The current wave of plant leaf decriminalization is the result of Libertarian Party spoiler votes over the course of 12 national election campaigns. It took 11 campaigns for the Prohibition Party to make beer a felony. Spoiler votes have finally become a mechanism for increasing freedom by throttling back coercion. Oh, and speaking of coercion…

Could asset-forfeiture prohibitionism have caused the Great Depression? Get the complete story in Prohibition and The Crash on Amazon Kindle in two languages. After this you’ll be able to explain to economists exactly how fanaticism and loss of freedom wrecked the U.S. economy.

The Bill Weld Gambit

No to Involuntary Labor!

Ensuring clinic access is guarding a fundamental right of the individual.

Would Bill Weld betray or help the Libertarian Party by running as a Republican?

The whole reason I volunteer, vote and donate to Libertarian parties is because I want the laws to change. This is about ideas, ethics, freedom… It is not about this or that particular politician. If my every libertarian spoiler vote is worth 10,000 looter votes when it comes to women’s reproductive rights, or 21 votes when it comes to repealing taxes and regulations, or a half-dozen votes in favor of relegalizing plant leaves, that leverage is fine by me. Nixon’s tinkering with the tax codes to subsidize looter parties and penalize honesty was met with whoops of joy from the presstitute corps. The move had attracted parasitical infiltrators to our ranks and literally pays all news outlets to enthusiastically depict the LP in much the way Der Sturmer reported on Judaism. It is no exaggeration to reiterate that the looter parties will do whatever it takes to rig the elections, infiltrate and defame the LP and generally play dirty pool to keep us from getting our candidates elected. After all, they are the ones that are for the initiation of force, fraud and violence.

But our candidates only need a few votes to win–where to win means to change bad laws. Because the Kleptocracy factions are nearly identical, their vote counts differ by very little. With a short platform purged of suicidal planks planted on us by infiltrators and saboteurs, all we need is about 3% of the vote to consistently cover the gap in roughly a third of the elections in These States. Bill Weld helped the LP earn national spoiler vote status by earning more votes than the difference between the Dem and GOP popular vote counts. When Gary Johnson opposed individual rights for women 4 years earlier he got only a third as many votes. The increase in our vote fraction attending the return to our original pro-choice platform should enable the LP to replace one of the looter parties in something like half a century. This is about the current age of the LP. Our looter adversaries are 170 and well into senility.

In order to not lose elections, paychecks and pelf, Republican partisans have to delete prohibition planks and find less repugnant candidates. Bill Weld is a less repugnant candidate. Unlike Randal Paul and Whatzisname Amash, Weld does not advocate sending men with guns to threaten doctors and  force women into involuntary labor. Weld is as pro-choice as the original Libertarian Party platform of 1972! If Weld runs for the nomination, he will end the Republican strategy of finding women-bulliers to impersonate token libertarians in an effort to bring back the Comstock laws banning ALL birth control.

This is exactly what we “unreconstructed” Libertarians want. Let’s us infiltrate them for some changes!
