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)

The Antichoice communist with Vatican

What Irish Voters Repealed by 2/3 majority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)

Economic Recovery, 1923

Prohibition, ergo Crash

Beer precursor crop crushed by prohibition, then relieved by nullification

There were two significant components to the economic recovery of 1923. One was nullification of prohibition law enforcement, when dry killers learned it was better to accept bribes than take return fire. The increase in U.S. hop production is proof of increased demand for the precursor plant buds used in brewing Beelzebub’s brewski. Continue reading

ANTIFA 1923

Same old same old...

Fascist socialism versus less religious socialism

Here we have a perfect example of history rhyming. The article could pass for something published in today’s fake news press in the State of Washington or Oregon. The story is in the future tense. One gang of violent altruists promises to “ferret out” agitators no less altruistic and violent. Details are not explicit, but interwar papers were full of violent confrontations between these two camps of socialist thought, both of which agree on the desirability and effectiveness of the initiation of force.(link

So what progress have we made since 1923? Eugenic prohibitionism no longer shoots people over beer unless they are behind the wheel. Many plant leaves could, if again left alone, offer an alternative to alcohol now relied on as a source of excise tax money that buys votes for political parties. Roving bands of communists (relabeled as anarchists) today seek smaller bands of more pious socialists to bat and bully, as in 1923.(link

The only real difference is that since 1972 voters have at times been able to cast ballots for the Libertarian Party. Because the LP platform calls for reducing reliance on aggression, emphasizing individual rights instead, those votes pressure kleptocracy parties into making their platform planks less coercive. The net result is repeated defeat of the more violent of two looter candidates. This causes predatory politicians to repeal cruel laws and water down violent platform planks in hopes of poaching away enough libertarian spoiler votes to again point a gun at your head.(link)

The chart below shows communist party membership in the wake of two prohibition-related depressions. Prohibition crashed the economy in 1920, was nullified by buying off and shooting agents (hence the recovery), then returned with flaming fanaticism after the Klan defected and helped elect the Republican party in 1928.(link)

Looting begets Looters

Communist membership rose after Republican prohibitionism causes a recession. Now it’s LP membership that rises whenever looter fanaticism wrecks the economy.

In a larger context, the same policy changes should reduce the reliance by subsidized parties on asset-forfeiture prohibitionism and economy-wrecking confiscation policies. This is because voters are now running to the Libertarian Party. Back in 1923 their only alternative to the entrenched kleptocracy was some sort of communo-socialist party.(link

ANcommunism 1924

Excluding European Looters

ANcommunists before the LP.org

After the 3-year Depression presaged by the first Prohibition Crash of 1920, Congress reacted to the sudden increase in looter anarchist partisans with the 1924 Immigration Act. Here’s how it worked. 

Encouraged by confiscation, fines, asset forfeiture and cruel prison terms imposed on miscreants not shot on sight, religious fanatics turned the force of law against Sunday baseball. They blacklisted merchandise and made a crime–not of violence–but of trade and production.** America then was (thanks to our oilfields) a mystical satrapy more like Saudi Arabia than Iran.(link)

But in a fractional reserve banking system where securities are sold on credit backed by the value of the stock shares, confiscations, fines and asset forfeiture cause depositors to remove money from banks and sell off their stocks. The money supply contracts sharply and a liquidity crunch generates a wave of bankruptcies. Depression results and voters rightly conclude they’ve been had.(link)

This happened in 1907, 1914, 1920, 1929, 1987 and 2008. The mechanism is described in Friedman’s “Free to Choose.” When these events of 1920 and 1929 impoverished the nation, there was no opposition Libertarian Party to turn to. Voters turned away from the failed Kleptocracy and canvassed for communists operating under several different names. Communist ranks increased both times.(link

Prohibition Crashes increase Looters

Prohibition and eugenic lead to poverty, communism,  fascism and war

The Kleptocracy dropped the ball, angry voters went elsewhere and communist membership doubled in the 1920-23 Depression. Communist membership fell when the dry laws were suborned and prosperity returned. But the 1929 Increased Penalties Act crashes caused communist numbers to double by 1932 and increase to five times the 1929 figure by 1937. With still no Libertarian Party to turn to, economic blight brought racial collectivist Christian National Socialists out of the woodwork in the US, Europe and Latin America. Another World War followed. That all changed after 1972.(link

After George Bush Jr orchestrated the asset-forfeiture Crash of 1980, seizing bank accounts and homes containing a potted hemp plant, the economy went to hell and ku-klux christianofascism suffered a telling blow. After twice failing to elect mystics, God’s Own Prohibitionists hired a trained persuader who was assisted to power by backlash against Global Warmunist pseudoscientists and anti-industrial doomcriers.

Gary Johnson running as a quasi-Republican girl-bullier in 2012 doubled our vote share thanks to the search for outside parties. But when Johnson recognized the individual rights the LP defended for women in 1972, our take went up 328% to 4.5 million votes in the federal elections and another 8 million or so in more important down-ballot elections.(link) The Libertarian Party is growing 80% per year and all the looter parties–communist and fascist alike–are losing members.

Once voters understand how government agent bank robbers and home-confiscators wreck the economy and attract coercive altruism, we stand to add another 8 million votes in general elections for 36 million overall. That kind of spoiler vote clout could repeal the 16th Amendment and free individuals of the IRS. But if the current Libertarian Platform Committee adds idiotic voter-alienating planks, or a conspicuously insane street person or girl-bullying republican gets the nomination, all is lost.(link

World Health? FATF Crash?

Nothing to see here folks...

FATF Week in Paris… Why the Market Crash?

Who makes decisions about financial intervention and World Health?

According to WHO (The World Health Organization), contributions from the U.S. government, American citizens, and U.S.-based charities make up 76% of all voluntary contributions to the organization. That amounted to $945.6 million from 2016 to 2017. 

This is pretty close to what Tucker, the narrator over at Fox News has to say.(link) His story checks out. In fact just about everything national socialist “conservatives” say about international socialist “progressives” (and vice-versa) is as close as either gang ever comes to saying anything true. The puppet FOX claims the Chinese dictatorship has propped up at the WHO (who send men with guns to shoot and jail kids because of plant leaves) is clearly pathetic.(link) But to the Chinese dictatorship he’s “our” pathetic stooge. Who else does Red China have shaping policy?

Sum Ting Wong

Bank of Communist China

Meet the new FATF President, Xiangmin Liu, and the coercive agenda-framers’ veep Marcus Pleyer. A communist Chinese dictatorship puppet and an ecological National Socialist from former communist soldier Merkel’s Democratic Republic of Antifaschistischer Germany.(link) Here are China’s policies😦link

  • Under the Chinese Presidency, the FATF will continue to… work on confiscation
  • under the Chinese Presidency the FATF will conduct a strategic review of its core work.
  • Under the Chinese Presidency, the FATF will develop the methodology for countries to be assessed against the standard for virtual assets…
  • Financial institutions continue to attract attention for the wrong reasons and find themselves the focus of increasingly large-scale money laundering as highlighted by investigations and sanctions by law enforcement agencies and supervisors.
  • The FATF will continue to strengthen the capacity and effectiveness of criminal justice systems, including the investigation and prosecution of money laundering

Prohibitionists routinely cause financial collapses via asset forfeiture enactments, and when they do, the Republican Party they infiltrate and poison loses several successive presidential elections. China noticed this weakness. This latest crash came during FATF Week in Paris.(link) These bureaucrats design the deliberate looting of bank accounts, and crash economies as in 2008, and cause flash crashes.(link)

As soon as the latest FATF Crash needed to be explained away, subsidized media rushed into print with the 3-month-old communist lab virus no longer profitable to ignore. The FATF Week meeting was covered in Pakistani and Iranian media–and few other journalistic news outlets. 

The U.S. President ought to investigate FATF and declaw it. Charging the communists reparations for their germ lab accident could be an additional step. The simplest method would be to use the asset-forfeiture FATF itself recommends to seize the Treasury Bills in Chinese communist hands. What better way to combat terrorism?

When it comes to votes, either way, this crash and depression will arguably benefit the Libertarian Party, just as the 2008 Bush FATF crash helped us increase our vote share by 328% from 2008 to 2016. While the economy was recovering from the previous asset-forfeiture crash, medieval prohibitionism of plant leaves and contraception could be overlooked. But prohibitionism is the weakness in America’s mixed economy totalitarians have learned to exploit.

Republican crashes bring communism

Stocks crash, sugar price up 600%

Normal sugar price was 4 cents, cartoon is first day of Volstead Act

The Republican party, like its foster-child party in 1933 Germany, bragged that it is preferable to communism. But what if prohibitionist Republican policies actually increase communism by causing economic panics, crashes, depressions and collapse?(link

Disloyalty a crime since 1873 Comstock laws

Prohibition January 1920, Reds and Rights confront National Socialist sedition laws, markets crashing

The mechanism is simple enough. Politicians stirred into frenzy by braying evangelizers pass prohibition laws people ignore. To these are added the “teeth” of asset-forfeiture confiscation and huge fines and prison terms. All money flees the banks and brokerages to escape the inevitable fractional-reserve system liquidity crunch, failures and bankruptcies. Violence replaces rights and soon everyone is as poor as in a communist dictatorship. With nothing to lose, folks begin voting for communist and similar looter parties.(link)

Below shows how communist party membership increased after the 1920-22 Crash and Depression, then Whole Enchilada Crash. Observe that the numbers shrank after general nullification made those laws unenforceable in 1923-4, then shot up as the Jones Five and Ten law and asset-forfeiture imposed huge losses and liabilities on corn sugar and yeast plants and their “gangster” surrogates producing moonshine ethanol.(link)

Crashes increase communist party membership

Red ranks increase from Harding-Coolidge 1920 Crash, then explode beginning 1930 under GOP’s Herb Hoover

As soon as the Volstead Act became enforceable at gunpoint the night of January 16th, 1920, stock markets began to wobble. Instead of prosperity and freedom, markets crashed and jails filled up. Nullification saved the day as armed citizens exchanged gunfire with dry killers.(link) This is from the communist party page, where you can see large, interactive charts.(link) Here is how a less wrecked economy allows entrenched kleptocracy parties to rob without fear of 3rd-party competition. This is before the Bush asset forfeiture Crash of 2008: 

Between asset-forfeiture crashes

1992 was when Bush Daddy was fired after wrecking the economy with Nancy Reagan policies.

Once fanaticism overcame nullification with the 5 and 10 Law and the Willebrandt income-tax-forfeiture agenda, the economy toppled as of September 1929 and looter parties multiplied like flies on a battlefield. Corn Products Refining and Fleischmann’s Yeast, whose products replaced banned distilleries, breweries and bars, were both indicted and fined, and their empires additionally threatened with state income tax forfeitures.

The power behind Capone in Cicero

Add yeast and distill, or add yeast, powdered malt and brew

So voting for Bernie communism makes These States more communistic, true. But voting for faith-based national socialism to destroy the economy with forfeiture-fired pseudoscientific witchhunts raises communist/surrogate memberships MUCH faster because that’s what happens in a wrecked economy. Here is how Americans came to their senses on this and voted after the George Waffen Bush asset-forfeiture crash cost them half their retirement savings:

Pro-choice Gary Johnson got 4.5 million votes

Libertarians get 4.5 million pro-choice votes, increasing at 80% per year and repealing bad laws after 1980 GOP Crash

Either way you look at wasting your valuable vote you lose freedom, because communo-fascist variants of socialism are the same thing. Voting Libertarian jerks the rug out from under looter corruption AND repeals their idiot laws to boot with very large effective leverage.(link

What caused the 16 Feb Crash?

Asset-Forfeiture Looting is not Free trade

Asset-forfeiture is the leper’s bell of an approaching looter.

Type S&P 500 and choose the 6 month index. By running the cursor along the peak of the curve you can tell when the slope of the curve turned negative. That date looks like 19FEB2020. CNN expelled a huge smokescreen on China’s Communo-Virus close to then, but CNN is not of a truthful persuasion. The corporation actually PAYS airports to display its screed on waiting area screens, and nobody had more interest in asset-forfeiture looting than Nixon-law subsidized media looters. So who is next on the list of usual suspects? Whose name appeared on the Flash Crashes of 2008, 2010 and 2015?(link)

Yes, I am talking about the Financial Action Task Force currently tasked with looking into corruption in not-really-communist China. And guess what… see those twin troughs just to the left of February 19? The high point just before the fall-where the slope goes from increasing to decreasing–coincides reasonably with issuance of a Swiss report on how Swiss banks have agreed to FATF-approved Knife Your Customer and similar policies. The report was released, I’d wager, on or about February 17, 2020, judging from the stock prices graph. The FATF is very careful to avoid exact dates unless there are no nearby stock gyrations.(link

FATF reports and such are reportedly released in Month, Year, and surrounded with a smokescreen of obfuscating acronyms. The MER on Switzerland was adopted in October 2016 and at the urging of AML/CFT advisors went through R.2 through R.21 with threshold gaps triggering due diligence requirement adjustments and execution of operations in cases of suspicion. Since the same Swiss whose papers debated U.S. newspapers about wholesaling heroin in February of 1929 are today deemed too naíve to write their own laws, the FATF hands elected representatives AMLAs to sign and pass, and scolding CDBs (a looter code of ethical robbery).(link)

FATF does admit that an OBA-FINMA became enforceable with guns on January 1, 2020, and for the ten-thousandth time dins its message that anyone who would rather not be robbed by tax collectors can only be so anti-social if actually practicing or at least abetting the financing of religious terrorists flying hijacked planes into tall buildings in New York.(link) Everywhere you look, logical disjunction is resorted to to deliver this point subliminally. Any declarative statement, even “two plus two makes four” is still true after some dishonest skunk tacks on a disjunction. Two plus two makes four or five is therefore as logically true a statement as it was before tacking on the cognitive mutilation and repeating it a million times–sad, but true.(link

See their pro-coercion brainwashing movie: Not a Victimless Crime

 

So a preference for keeping your own money means–in FATFspeak–you are morally the same as 1912 balkan Mohammedans or Christians kidnapping, raping and murdering each other, and selling the survivors to the highest bidder.(link) By their lights, this makes you OAD FCT according to the GBCF.(link

You can see how this goo, like the language in the Anti-Drug Abuse Act of 1987-is contrivedly hard to follow or, once grasped, to explain to the innocent. Then again, if your pet policy is guaranteed to wreck the economy that pursues it, clarity is the enemy.

Dry Killers, 2020

PERP NOT SHOWN, REDACTED

FEDERAL Prosecutor initiates deadly force against wife, self. (link)

Dry Killers was the term The Chicago Tribune used to describe government agents and their hangers-on who routinely killed unarmed boys and men in the 1920s and 30s. Anyone who thinks this is a prohibition phenomenon that’s over and done with might care to explain today’s news–or news of the past century.

Federal Prohibition and Second Amendment Kristallnacht infringement mouthpiece Timothy Delgado turned up dead just north of Folsom Prison in California, where police say he apparently killed his wife, then himself. Whether the reporting is accurate or not, it is typical of fanatical prohibitionism–which after the complete economic collapse of 1929-1933 shifted from beer, wine and Demon Rum to coercion over plant leaves and their extracts. The other big change is that big shots at the Chicago Tribune had a lot invested in alcohol precursor chemicals during national prohibition. They evidently have no such stake in Post-Nixon avatars of Satan. Fanatics infiltrating federal agencies, on the other hand, most certainly have a serious stake in the initiation of deadly force.(link)

Tribune reporters back then tracked down and reported on every storeowner, housewife and boat operator murdered in cold blood by prohibition agents. Nowadays such events are typically reported only by Reason Magazine writers. Prohibition killings are masked as “resisting arrest” and other such euphemistic camouflage, and a way is in every case found to minimize their impact on public perception. But America was not always so like a Christian National Socialist Democracy.(link)

Chicago was then and is now home to the largest glucose corn sugar plant on planet Earth. Yeast and sugar companies bankrolled bootleggers who installed refinery-grade continuous stills in bankrupt three-story mansions after The Crash. These outfits could afford to repay the political State in its own coin. This actually happened twice. In 1921-22 civilian posse comitatus‘ hunted down killers with badges as the economy collapsed, then a truce was established. The economic effect can be seen in this graph for hops, a precursor plant used to brew Beelzebub’s beer.(link

Nullification of felony beer prohibition laws

The 1923 Gentleman’s Agreement shifted enforcement away from beer until March 2, 1929, after which the economy lasted another 6 months

The truce broke down when the Klan defected from the Dems in 1928 and helped elect Herbert Clark Hoover. Prohibition related murders–including the killing of federal agents–immediately filled all the papers, and books appeared right after the Crash–itself caused by withdrawals of money from banks to avoid federal asset-forfeiture confiscation. That is a little-appreciated aspect of a fractional-reserve banking system after a looter takeover. Here is an excerpt from Before and After Prohibition, a 1930 compendium by Maryland Senator Millard Tydings:

ONE of the most shocking results of the ten years of effort to enforce national prohibition is the long record of killings by prohibition and other Federal law enforcement agents. Even among some of the strongest advocates of the “noble experiment,” there have been widespread expressions of revolt at this bloody spectacle. Information regarding many of these killings has occupied much space in the public press, and editorial comment upon them has been most denunciatory. Yet they continue—apparently an almost inevitable accompaniment of the enforcement of this law.

Senator Tydings managed to uncover some 1300 suppressed killings committed by prohibition agents that were kept out of the papers and seldom discussed–including cases of federal gangs gunning down each other! Here’s a fratricidal example from Tydings’ collection: 

George Ball and William Porter, State agents, killed in battle with Federal Revenue officers at Camp Creek, West Virginia, June 20, 1925. (Each band of dry raiders thought the others were bootleggers, and they opened fire simultaneously.)

So this pattern of superstition, pseudoscience and political asset-forfeiture looting requires the initiation of force. This in turn requires killing people so that the law is taken seriously. Who advocates these murders? The answer is politicians who, like Germany’s NSDAP, represent Christian altruism–except for the part about how “thou shalt not kill.”(link

Thus, mystical collectivist cheapening of gratuitous murder stimulates demand for revenge and counterexamples, and the sort of agents and prosecutors attracted to this line of work do not even value their own lives, much less those of others. Remember this when next you hear one of God’s Own Prohibitionists seeking to pervert the Constitution and coerce women for “the unborn.” Just as Republican and Democrat prohibition fanatics cannot see “thou shalt not kill” in a book that does not condemn enjoyable substances, just so they cannot grasp “All Persons born” in the U.S. Constitution, or the absence, nay, denial of any federal authority for enactment of sumptuary laws.(link)

Incidentally, Millard Tydings was reelected over and over and served 44 years in the Senate.

Feeling the Bern?

Poor dissolute uncovered wretches

Bernie proposed to stop shooting blacks

Republicans cannot imagine why young people prefer plants to gin, and prefer not to get robbed and shot by police over plant leaves. The only thing positive about their God’s Own Prohibitionist’ fascist platform is its refusal–so far–to have the police arrest people for generating electric power. When the Bush executive orders resulted in not-really-christianofascist asset forfeiture orgies that wrecked the economy as in 1929-33 and 1987-92, no Republican had the honesty to admit the cause of the collapse in mortgage-backed derivatives. The cause was fanatical prohibitionist asset forfeiture looting.

Here is a video of some of the things that are wrong with Bernie’s not-really-communism…

 

No, it is not reason enough to help religious conservatives again consolidate power and again destroy the economy through prohibitionist asset forfeiture looting. But it is bad. Find out more about why voting Libertarian makes economic sense…

Herbert Hoover, 1929, Anti-dog-eat-dog

Republican Prohibitionist fanatics

Hitler’s Anti-dog-eat-dog helper (link) shakes with Brezhnev’s ally in violating the Second Amendment (link)

Hoover speech to Chamber of Commerce conference, 12/5/1929: Much construction work had been postponed during the past few months by reason of the shortage of mortgage money due to the diversion of capital for speculative purposes.
 The third line of action has been to undertake through voluntary organization of industry the continuity and expansion of the construction and maintenance work of the country, so as to take up any slack in employment which arises in other directions. (…) This is a far cry from the arbitrary and dog-eat-dog attitude of the business world of some 30 or 40 years ago.  (Hoover 1929 1974 454-5) (link)

Translation: making beer a 5-year prison term felony with a fine of over half a million 2019 dollars just before my inauguration backfired. Asset-forfeiture of everything from ocean liners to homes, automobiles and bank & brokerage accounts caused money to flee the banking system after former prosecutor Willebrandt blew the whistle on how we do it in 21 newspapers in August. We now imitate German and Italian fascism make-work projects to disguise the damage caused by using revenue laws to enforce religious prohibition. Religious fascism is not a bit like the laissez-faire liberalism that kept America wealthy and free back when beer and coca wine were as legal as sea salt.

This speech was made the year Ayn Rand married Frank O’Connor. Here is the relevant page from the Presidential Papers of Herbert Hoover:

Brot un Arbeit! Gott Mitt Uns!

Asset-forfeiture prohibitionism chased money from banks, so no mortgages, no jobs, no individualism, no laissez-faire, no freedom!

Hoover (prohibition): “This is not dictation or interference by the government with business.”

Nixon (war on drugs): “I am not a crook!”

Ayn Rand (Atlas Shrugged): “Congress shall make no law abridging the freedom of production and trade …”
