Severability and Spoiler Votes

http://www.blogdodemian.com.br/

Spoiler votes change the laws–escape!

The entrenched kleptocracy keeps government jobs and parasitical subsidies by duping registered voters into fearing “the” other bucket of crabs. Each bucket is a package-deal of unrelated lobbyist agendas. Many contracts are also package-deals thrown together by disparate stakeholders. Out of fear that the courts will strike down one of the more egregious clauses, a severability clause is usually stirred into the crab-boil.

A severability clause states that if parts of the contract are held to be illegal or otherwise unenforceable, the remainder of the contract should still apply. The Constitution works that way without the need for a severance clause. The 13th Amendment ended chattel slavery and voided the fugitive slave (=”property”) clause from Article IV, yet the Constitution survived and the Supreme Court even ruled that conscription wasn’t really involuntary servitude.

The Constitution is amended (for better or for worse) by small party spoiler votes. Religious fanatics casting 1.4% of the vote created the 18th amendment making beer a felony. Communist fanatics shifted the paradigm and added Communist Manifesto plank 2 as the 16th Amendment. No severability clause was needed. The severability that matters–that changes laws–is when you sever relations with both halves of the entrenched looter kleptocracy. They then have to change their platforms to try and lure back those spoiler votes.  Why? So their snouts–not the other gang’s–can be in the trough.

Crabs–scavengers for carrion–cannot escape a bucket because their fellow partisans in that bucket energetically pull down any who try to escape over the wall. In the Republican bucket, if a wealthy woman executive wants to reverse an unplanned pregnancy, that’s too bad. Mystical bigots will pull her down. If a producer does not want his son or daughter shot, robbed, raped and jailed over a plant leaf, group peer pressure grabs his ankles lest he escape the collective bucket.

Anyone in the Democrat bucket who is tired of being looted and robbed is likewise dragged down by United Front activists and scolded for attempted desertion under fire. After all, women would have “no rights” and there would be “no roads” if not for the Communist Manifesto plank 2, right? You’ve got to believe that faked temperature data is real or the Republicans will shoot, rob, rape and jail your sons and daughters over a plant leaf to please their prohibitionist hangers-on. But will they change or simply lie? Fools will believe anything, and their conformist votes identify them as dupes. With that in mind, ask yourself if you really expect the truth from anyone committed to taking from others by force?

But what happens when voters can polevault into a completely different bucket, or escape to freedom? What paradigm shift results when your vote can tell politicians you say NO to robbing, murdering, bombing, or defrauding anyone? What happens when you finally realize that cowardice, dishonesty, lack of integrity is what dooms the crabs in those buckets to the boiling pot? In the past, what always happened was that the laws changed, and the Constitution changed. In the present, that change can be for the better. Do YOURSELF a favor. Increase your law-changing clout by voting Libertarian.

What’s going on in Brazil?

dilminha73Brazil’s two most recent presidents have been anti-American populists of the looter persuasion, both of them chummy with the Bolivian, Cuban and Venezuelan governments. Two things stand out about these three governments. All were targets of massive United States intervention, and none of the three have anything resembling a Libertarian party. In fact, Lula and Dilma’s Workers Party is probably the most honest and (ignoring economic freedom) Libertarian party in the country. Brazil has 32 government-subsidized  political parties and voting is mandatory. All of the parties are communist, socialist or prohibitionist–-if not all of the above, and the people best situated to be able to tell the difference, Brazil’s voters themselves, have elected and reelected Lula and Dilma twice. They were practically national heroes until 2013, when something happened.

The North American colonies were of great strategic importance to England, and quickly mastered the arts of shipbuilding and weapons production. Portugal’s colonies, on the other hand, we’re deliberately kept backward and impoverished by regulation and predatory taxation. Docile Citizen is not a bad description of your average forced-to-vote voter, and Brazilian politics are pretty low key. Mussolini is greatly admired here, and whatever the Vatican utters quickly becomes law.

Right now, for instance, there is an epidemic of mosquito-borne disease that causes women to deliver pinhead babies. When the news broke, religious physicians spoke as one in first denying the reports, then casting aspersions, and finally removing nearly all mention of the public health hazard lest Brazilian women rise up and demand the right to legally terminate pregnancies. None of the 32 parties seeks to legalize abortion, and the illegal practice remains a lucrative source of tax-free cash revenue. Local telescreens likewise avoid all mention of legalization or decriminalization of hemp in Colorado, Washington, Canada, Australia or Portugal. Yet, oddly enough, two of the most loud-mouthed prohibitionist politicians–Maluf and Cunha–have just been politically neutralized by criminal charges/investigations.

bushaecioDilma’s opponent in the last election, a CIA-backed prohibitionist zealot whose name is associated with helicopters full of dope and landing strips–has also fallen glumly silent after incessant squawking since the day he lost. The whole situation reeks of superpower meddling. The Bush Dynasty régimes’ asset-forfeiture orgy destroyed the Brazilian economy–already disrupted before by similar Bush-Reagan policies of 1987-1992.  Bradley Manning’s disclosures revealed the the US was busily exporting asset-forfeiture prohibitionism throughout the world at a time when the United States economy was collapsing–possibly in hopes of shorting the suckers to recoup its losses when their economies predictably collapsed. Furthermore, it is common knowledge that the Workers’ Party is not fanatically bent on shooting youngsters over victimless nonsense like the erstwhile US-backed military junta with its death squads. Edward Snowden’s revelations of NSA spying on boodling politicians’ and magnates’ cellphones raises the question of whether recorded conversations and email intercepts might have been conveniently passed along to local authorities and opposition parties in furtherance of destabilizing indictments.

At this time it is hard to tell what is going on. All appearances indicate that some sort of Taeping Rebellion of Fifth Column infiltrators with a foreign agenda is once more afoot. I clearly remember the US intervention in 1964. That coercive meddling has done more to popularize Communism (and National Socialism) in the Southern Hemisphere than anything else. Now–with no nuclear-tipped communist empire on the map–would be an excellent time for the Republicans and Democrats to leave South America well enough alone.
