Republican electoral coercion

Lateran treaties with Mussolini and Hitler

Religious brainwashing in Government Schools

From the 35772-word 2016 platform of God’s Own Prohibitionists:

To guard against foreign involvement in our elections, we call for vigilance regarding online credit card contributions to candidates and campaigns.

(By vigilance they mean the violence of law.)

The result so far has been to infiltrate and intimidate local Libertarian parties to stop expatriate American citizens abroad from voting, paying dues or making a voluntary libertarian party donation via Paypal. Since this plank was published, then embellished by rumors of US elections being influenced by countries “we” subsidize, hate, invade or bomb, Internet Service Providers have gleefully blocked credit card submissions originating through ISPs outside of These Sovereign States and Dominions. The Libertarian Party of Texas has been infiltrated by Republican saboteurs to the point of turning away prospective members eager to sign the NAP and pay dues.

But is this even consistent? What about using taxation to rob foreign visa holders in America, then forcing them to support entrenched mixed-economy fascist and socialist parties? Nixon’s 1971 anti-Libertarian law says:

SECTION 9004. ENTITLEMENT OF ELIGIBLE CANDIDATES TO PAYMENTS.
“(a) IN GENERAL. – Subject to the provisions of this chapter –
“(1) The eligible candidates of a major party in a presidential election shall be entitled to payments under section 9006 equal in the aggregate to $0.15 multiplied by the total number of residents within the United States who have attained the age of 18, as determined by the Bureau of the Census, as of the first day of June of the year preceding the year of the presidential election. (…)

Before their anti-energy candidate lost, the Dems were all gung-ho on opening up DATA borders. Their lengthy 2016 platform said:

We will increase access to global markets for American intellectual property and other digital trade by opposing quotas, discriminatory measures, and data localization requirements.

That was then, and this is now, and you can no longer order software from Amazon to be delivered within the borders of allied nations.  The Nixon anti-Libertarian law transfers your money to the media on a scale proportional to the number of dupes suckered by that looter party. Why? To take sides in election campaigns and strive to crush the one party that wants an objective, unsubsidized playing field for all parties and candidates.

What is Winning?

GOPNSDAPThe key to political campaigns is in the definition of winning. Suppose someone wanted his son shot and jailed, home confiscated, unemployment up, and all markets crashed, you’d suggest he vote Republican. Same solution if they were to want a daughter to bleed to death because of medieval approaches to accidental pregnancy. To Republican, Christian National Socialist and Islamic State legislators that’s winning–provided their candidate also gets the government job. Communists and lay socialists on the other hand prefer to forego the government job but force the kleptocracy to change the laws in response to the pressure of their spoiler votes. It’s kind of like a “sacrifice” move in a chess game, in exchange for gaining tactical or positional compensation farther along. So if their platform planks seem “extreme” (meaning consistent with their ideology), that’s not a problem. Spoiler votes will gradually make those positions seem wearily centrist. That’s the strategy that enacted the 16th and 18th Amendments.

demcommieWhen socialist parties lose, it’s because (their cheerleaders feel) that particular unverifiable secret ballot election was rigged. Deep down you know this is true–or at least unfalsifiable–so the tendency is to feel a twinge of sympathy for the raw deal they got. But it’s not just ordinary socialists. Christian National Socialists, Islamic Mohammedans and devout altruistic Communists all want essentially the same thing: decisions imposed at gunpoint by the better people who know what’s good for the riff-raff. Of course they have surrogates. National Socialists of Third Reich Christian persuasions have since 1932 been the hand inside the Republican party sockpuppet. International Socialists of the East German Communist variety have lately pulled the strings that move the arms and mouths of Democratic Party spokesmen. One can’t think independently and still have faith in altruism.

But suppose a voter wants freedom? That is, not the initiation of force, but rather, voluntary cooperation? Suppose you want the Marxist personal income tax abolished, its collectors disarmed and returned to the productive labor market? What about those who want to eat, drink and smoke what they prefer–people to whom winning means becoming the masters of their own financial decisions?

Fake Trump combover?

Not a Fake Trump combover!

In that case, the recommendation can only be to vote for the LP platform Gary Johnson is standing on. It is easy to verify that, as in 1892 or 1908, each third-party spoiler vote has way more law changing power than a vote wasted on shape-shifting actors fronting for soft machines. Dry Christian Progressives backing small parties in the 1890s paved the way for Prohibition making light beer a felony. Likewise, dry Christian Socialists paved the way for Soviet Communism in Russia, National Socialism in Germany, and transfer payments to non-producers elsewhere. Yet all their parties–Greenback, Farmer-labor, Anti-monopoly, Socialist, Socialist labor, Prohibition, LOST by their candidates getting less than half the electoral vote. However, they eventually won what they wanted by changing the laws, whether through enactment, court decisions, or repeal.

I’d wager that even if Gary Johnson were to receive 60% of the votes, a way would be found to defraud the election. But the fright would nevertheless cause the looters to abolish a mess of bad laws–which is what I really want. THAT’s winning. Consider making a Paypal donation at LP.org I absolutely guarantee your donation will change 600% to 3600% as many words in laws as it would if wasted on either of the Kleptocracy soft machines.
