Country Joe, Libertarian

This was before there was a Libertarian Party

Ever since 1968 Country Joe Macdonald has been a heroic pioneer by my lights. Imagine my surprise in discovering that he actually played benefit gigs for the Libertarian Party! Here’s a peek at what you can find on his website (link)

Some Differences Between You and the Major Candidates Running for Office This Year

1 The Economy
They are rich, have health plans and pension plans. If they lose their jobs as politicians they can easily get other jobs or simply retire.
You are not rich, just barely have a health plan, and a modest pension plan or no pension plan at all. If you lose your job you may not be able to get another one and cannot afford to retire.
2 Violence
They are protected by bodyguards, live in safe “gated” communities, drive in bullet-proof cars and work in “guarded” buildings. They don’t need to have or carry guns because their bodyguards do that for them.
You have no bodyguards, live in regular accessible communities, drive a regular car or have no car, and work somewhere where there is no protection against violence. You might have guns but cannot carry them around with you all the time and are doing other things besides just waiting for trouble to happen like a bodyguard.
3 Family
All the members of their family are very safe. They have health insurance and seldom have to travel the streets or highways regular citizens do. They do not do their own shopping, cooking, or washing, they have servants to wait on them. If they do not get jobs it does not really matter they still have plenty of money. They have as much leisure time as they like. They do not take care of their children at all; they have servants to do that.
Your family is not very safe. You could get run over by a car crossing the street or carjacked going shopping. Your family must somehow see to it that the shopping, cooking and washing gets done or there is nothing to eat or wear. You are living 24/7 and have no time to do much of anything but rush around “working.” Even your vacations if you have any are limited and rushed. You must take care of your children and other family members.
4 Gender
They can afford lots of lawyers to protect them and their rights to be sexually whatever they want to be. They are mostly male.
You can hardly afford one lawyer to fight for your rights. One half of you are female.
5 Voting
In national elections it matters very little if they vote or not, but they get to have a real vote on all the national and international issues that affect every aspect of your life. They can afford to lobby for issues they think are important and directly talk with important people to influence the outcome of important issues they care about. They are mostly white and male.
You can vote in national elections but the electoral college does not have to pay attention to your wants. You do not get to vote on any domestic or international issues at all. You have no access to important people at all. Many of you are not white and male.
6 War
They get to decide if there is a war or not but they do not fight in wars. Their family members do not have to fight in wars except if they choose to. They are not in the military and most of them have never been in the military. The outcome of wars that they decide to fight has very little effect upon their lives. They are mostly white and male.
You cannot decide anything about going to war. You may be in the military now or have been in the military. Your family members may be in the military or be forced to be in the military in times of war. The outcome of wars and your participation in war can ruin your life forever. Many of you are not white and 50% of you are female.
7 Abortion
They can afford to get or not get an abortion as they see fit. If they have an unwanted pregnancy they can afford to have the child taken care of by servants. They can travel to other countries where abortions are legal. They can hire lawyers to protect what they do about abortion. Mostly they cannot get pregnant because they are male.
You and your family can be ruined by an unwanted pregnancy. You cannot afford to travel out of the country nor hire lawyers to protect what you do about pregnancy. 50% of you can get pregnant because you are female.
8 Work
They have huge staff of people — some paid, some volunteers – who do work for them. They have secretaries, interns, chauffeurs, advisors and even “mouthpieces” to explain to whoever wants to know what or why they will do or did what they did. If they run out of ideas they simply hire a “think tank” to think for them. All of their expenses are paid for by the taxpayers and their rich friends. They have office space paid for by the taxpayers. They and their staff are mostly white and male… except for the interns.
You have to do everything yourself. If you screw up you have to explain to the world why you did. If you run out of ideas you just have to struggle with it. You have to pay for all your help out of your own pocket. You worry all the time about “cash flow.” You can hardly afford to keep afloat. You pay taxes. Many of you are not white; half of you are female and millions of you are not old enough to vote and are working illegally. Many of you can’t vote because you are homeless and have no permanent address.
9 Running for office
They can afford to run for public office.
You cannot.

Libertarian vote growth
Vote share is %, 01 is 2000 election

The above Country Joe comparisons were posted 20 years ago. Since then, specifically since 2008, the LP has taken off. Our share of the vote increases 80% per year, tripping up the entrenched parties’ efforts to trip each other and grab more loot.  Suddenly they are deleting cruel planks and rushing to repeal violent laws in hopes the other will get knocked over by Libertarian Party spoiler votes. The graph looks like this with (01) being the 2000 election. In 2016 the LP got 4 million votes, covering the gap between the two entrenched parties in 13 states casting 109 electoral votes. Thanks to the LP.org, the electoral college now cares deeply about your wants.

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

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

Wasted Votes defeating Boss Trump

The original post was treacherously destroyed, so It must have been worth rebuilding. If your post enabling libertarian votes disappears in a fog of “unexpected block encountered,” report it to me using the contact form below, willya?

Trump did an interview on Fox mentioning the LP getting 4.5% of the vote in 2016, then claiming us as [get this!] Republicans. But instead of legalizing acid and weed and stopping the individual income tax, he whined that he was “somewhat” libertarian and that we were wasting our votes on an anti-aggression platform. Republicans in Congress (the ones who nominated Bush and Mitt Romney) are more concerned with bullying pregnant girls, shooting youths and robbing assets over plant leaves. The real question is, can Trump survive the superstitious cowardice of the Republican Party?

Here is the part elided from the Youtube version: 

They always talk about Jill Stein. Jill Stein took, what? Half a percent? Well, I have a Libertarian—I’m somewhat libertarian I have to be honest with you, Rand Paul will tell you that — I have a Libertarian candidate on last time that got, what? Four and a half or so percent?  Those are all Republican voters. They’re wasting their vote, because — they have to vote for us. –Trump

“Us” Paleface? 

The Libertarian Party platform takes 30 minutes to read at LP.org–or listen to as a podcast. Here it is in Brazilian Portuguese: (link)

Legacy representative democracy means entrenched politicians who vote for Prohibition Party planks (shooting kids over plants, bullying pregnant girls), Communist & Econazi Party planks (more taxes and regulations, disarm and surrender, no nukes, ban electric power). Our law-changing spoiler votes change looter priorities by defeating the coercive creeps.(link) Let them try to deploy murderers and abet robbers and prohibitionists after they lose that hand in the till.(link)

God’s Own Prohibitionists prefer Drug Czarism to winning, Their efforts go into laws shooting kids and dogs, and setting up cartel dictatorships abroad to rob and murder the citizens of banana republics–like the Reagan-Bush-Biden Law.(link) These are things the Kleptocracy copied from our competitors–the Prohibition Party that wrecked the economy (link) and the Fabian communist parties that slowly rot the economy while collaborating with foreign dictatorships.(link)

The Libertarian platform has been clear for 48 years.(link) Assistant Drug Czar Biden is likewise a child-shooting, dog-killing, asset forfeiture prohibitionist beholden to communist China. Biden’s Red China has recently executed several Canadians for “drugs.”(link) This is the same Red China from which the deadly plague has wafted worldwide since late 2019. Biden’s China exports plagues and narcotics and inflicts the death penalty for 68 crimes, 44 of which are victimless. Good government gradually elbows aside entrenched, outdated and dangerous monarchies and kleptocracies incapable of grasping reality and legalizing freedom. 

Political replacement curve

This same curve fitting technique shows how the Libertarian vote share is inexorably increasing at an accelerating rate.

Hockey stick for Libertarians!

If you support the force-initiating looter kleptocracy, know that Libertarian spoiler votes will continue beat the bloody snot out of your candidates’ campaigns until you copy our planks. The American Liberal Party made the same offer in 1931.(link) Herbert Hoover wanted the Republican party to adopt a repeal plank in 1932. Instead, National Socialist Republicans lost five elections in a row–and a war.

Libertarian Party 20 years ago

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

See the original newspaper (link)

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


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


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

FREE 2020

Year of the Girl

Year of the Grrrl! (link)

Tatsuya Ishida’s embattled Sinfest comic has an arc going featuring a young lady named 2020, who was a mere baby on New Year’s Day. Already we have a break with hoary tradition by which years come in as male brats and leave as geezers. Dilbert comics feature an ad showing a woman (see? It’s catching on already) wearing a disgruntled T-shirt dismissing 2020 as “wouldn’t recommend.” Tat definitely has the more upbeat approach to the upcoming 2020 fall elections. 

Better looking, better educated

Over a decade younger than your average looter geezer!

Libertarian presidential candidate Jo Jorgensen in 2020 is also of the lady persuasion. But unlike the failed lady candidate of 2016, Jo’s platform does not call for sacrificing the economy to warmunist pseudoscience, jailing kids over plant leaves, policing other people’s countries or even more parasitical bleeding of debt-ridden taxpayers to fatten a greedy-but-declining Kleptocracy.

190 electoral votes swung in 2016!

LP spoiler voters shifted 190 kleptocracy electoral votes

Free on Jorgensen’s platform means uncoerced. Looter platforms seek to rob you to buy other votes at your expense. That’s not free. Looter parties know this, and they also know the LP vote share has been increasing by 80% per year. In 13 States Libertarians got more votes than the difference between the party that denies being fascist and the party that denies being communist. Republicans are again trying to ban birth control as in 1873. Democrats and Econazis are doing their best to make electricity scarce and unaffordable, if not illegal.  

Electricity when beer was a felony

Electricity saves women from drudgery

So before you waste 19/20 of your vote’s potential for law changing clout on either coercive, pussy-grabbing septuagenarian, consider that the Libertarian hockey stick just elected 70 candidates and is slowing state and local soft machine growth. If you vote for the initiation of force, you will continue to get killer cops, communist rioters, vigilante avengers, debt, poverty, foreign enemies and increased probability of biological weapons attacks or serious war. What you vote is what you get. 

We wrote the Roe v Wade decision!

The green line shows libertarian votes cutting taxes at the State and Local level.

Spare a thought for these myriad shocks to the US (and world) economies. Consider the safety and financial future of the younger generation as you prepare to vote.

Dallas Hippies Vote Libertarian

RETALIATE!

Resistance is utile!

Yep, it’s a nightmare for Nixon National Socialists, but voting Libertarian gets results. Your vote for a Libertarian Party candidate forces incumbent politicians to repeal bad laws. Otherwise they lose to each other. Any way you look at it, you win!

Here in this issue of an old Dallas underground newspaper is the Lee Park Massacre Saga in five-part harmony, with the names of the quarter-thousand Texas teenagers arrested and charged with Plant Leaves! The massacre occurred April 12, 1970, when the Moral Majority, eager to get those George Wallace spoiler votes away from ku-klux Dixiecrats and into the Republican column, sent the cops to beat and arrest long-haired Grateful Dead fans for daring to breathe air alongside the leafy Avatars of Satan. These are the people George Holy War Bush and Donald Trump want put to death, when not even the Republican Party platform calls for such cruel and superstitious violence.

If you find the name of anyone you know on the list of those arrested, why not ask them to register and vote for the party that wants to repeal all those violent laws and expunge everyone’s record? Remember, we don’t have to actually elect any candidates in order to change the laws. But there are dozens of dozens of elected libertarians holding office–enough to scare the daylights out of rabid republicans and dictatorial democrats. Honest elected officials are switching to the libertarian party.

The fanatical Prohibition Party never elected anyone. They barely averaged 1,4% of the vote in 11 election campaigns. But they did put the Prohibition Amendment into the Constitution and sent cops to break down doors, jail and shoot men, women, children and dogs–and confiscate their property. The Crash and Depression were the work of the entrenched parties doing their bidding.

This works in reverse now that there is a Libertarian Party earning 5% and 10% of the vote all over the map, and 3.25% according to the federal vote-counting kleptocracy. If that doesn’t sound like much to you, it is a hell of a lot to some pulpit-thumping Republican who just lost by 2%.

Want proof? In 1972 many states were trying to bring back the Comstock laws, ban diaphragms, The Pill, anything having to do with birth control. The Libertarian party platform said to leave the ladies alone. Let women and their doctors decide things like abortion. The Supreme Court copied the Libertarian Plank into the Roe v. Wade decision, striking down Dixiecrat coathanger abortion laws. The Prohibitionists and Republicans have since 1976 been trying to put a Coathanger Abortion amendment into the Constitution.

Nothing irritates these initiators of force more than this increasing vote count going to the Libertarian Party. It is your best defense against their violent usurpations against individual rights. Ours is the only party that is growing hockey-stick fashion. Our platform seeks to decriminalize hemp leaves, LSD, cactus, mushroom and other plant products known to be safer than cigarettes, alcohol, pharma meds or addictive painkillers. Portugal has a Libertarian Party and decriminalized ALL “drugs” 17 years ago. Portugal is today the most civilized country in Europe.

Kick them where it hurts

Vote libertarian. It’s the ONLY way to repeal bad laws!

Need translations to understand the bad laws US politicians export to ruin the economies of other countries?

How about an explanation of how Prohibition helped cause the Crash and Depression?
