Atlas Shrugged, 2018

Who is John Galt?

Dallas’ looter government ruined Yellow Bike companies with fees, taxes and regulations. Hello Starnesville!

“Nobody can be sure of anything.”

—Rudy Giuliani, asked how he could be sure Trump had no advance knowledge about the June 9th Trump Tower meeting.

Does this sound familiar? Compare…

“Nobody is right, or ever can be.”

—Dr Robert Stadler, Atlas Shrugged.

“Nobody is right or wrong, we’re all in it together, we’re all human—and the human is the imperfect.”

—Lilian Rearden, Atlas Shrugged

“Nobody is fully right or wrong!” “How can we ever be sure of anything?”

—James Taggart, Atlas Shrugged.

Remember the blighted areas in Atlas Shrugged? Places where altruistic politicians sent men with guns to help by militarizing prohibitionism, inducing asset forfeiture as predatory parasitism and replacing choice with coercion? They’re baaaack…

U.S. Elections, 1928=2018

May 28, 1928, H.L. Mencken on the election: “This show is good at all times, but it is best when some great combat is in progress, and I can think of no combat more likely to be violent and hence thrilling than one in which religious zealots are engaged. However trivial its actual issues, it is bound to show all the savagery of a dog fight.”

Religious zealot Herbert Clark Hoover was favored for the Republican nomination after Calvin Coolidge, convinced a crash and depression were imminent, eschewed the Republican Party nomination. The ku-klux klan was outraged at the thought of Whiskey Al Smith, a catholic, getting the Democratic Party nomination, and threatened to defect to the Republican camp.

“Both” parties wanted to use the income tax, libel and forfeiture laws to keep beer, birth control and many plant leaves illegal.  Citizens and foreigners were gunned down daily by Customs, Coast Guard, Internal Revenue, prohibition agents, municipal police and county sheriffs’ departments. European nations that had begged for and gotten war loans from the US now struggled to welch on those loans without the sort of overt repudiation that might give their colonial subjects inconvenient ideas.  Communism had earnestly begun to decimate Russia and its Soviet colonies through starvation, forced labor and firing squads, while socialists in America shrilly denied that any such thing was occurring. There was no Libertarian Party then, only socialists, communists and fascists here and in Europe.

Today both looter parties seek to use the income tax, censorship, libel and forfeiture laws to keep plant leaves illegal and cripple insurgent parties. Democrats ignore thermometer records and imagine the world is a rotisserie in an effort to close power plants, keep freon illegal, subsidize political ads for looter parties, send men with guns to kill people abroad and put a tax on carbon dioxide (not methane or water vapor). Republicans struggle to bring back the Comstock laws of 1872-3 banning birth control, keep all enjoyable drugs (except ethanol) illegal, subsidize political ads for looter parties and send men with guns to kill people abroad, prop up mystical prohibitionist régimes, and keep refugees and foreign survivors from coming to America to exact revenge.

Both want your vote to go to one or the other, either-or.

But the entrenched looter kleptocracy is faced with a hockey-stick increase in votes cast for the Libertarian Party. The LP seeks to repeal the communist manifesto income tax Amendment and stop the Nixon subsidies to looter party campaigns. The LP does not want men with guns to kill anyone over plant leaves, freon or carbon dioxide, and is certainly opposed to endangering military personnel by ordering occupation, kidnapping or murders in foreign jurisdictions.

Here is the voting trend hockey stick showing Libertarian Party growth since the campaign of 2000:

Why be a part of the undignified faecepuke-flinging match that so excites the basically identical force-initiating parties? Every libertarian vote lowers taxes and repeals onerous laws by forcing the looters to deliver on those promises or lose that hand in the till and lard on the leather upholstery. All you have to do is vote outside the line and inside the upper square of the 2-dimensional Nolan Chart box. You vote will pack at least six times the clout. Never forget that, 3674 libertarian votes cast in 1972 promptly persuaded the Supreme Court to protect the individual rights of women with its Roe v. Wade ruling.

Lobbyists v. Libertarians

Вера Кичанова

Big Oil, the Koch Brothers, the Coal lobby…

To camouflage the law-changing power of libertarian spoiler votes, the Kleptocracy shrieks at lobbies (Naral, NRA, LEAP, Norml) as agents of unwelcome change. In fact, the LP (est. 1971) and the Liberal Party (est. 1930) were the prime movers that struck down coathanger abortion laws, felony beer prohibition, Comstock censorship, conscription into involuntary servitude, fanatical prohibition of plant leaves, coercive gay baiting, and weaponized racial collectivism.

Communo-fascist third parties were goood back when they were an excuse for expanding Kleptocracy power. The Dems copied Socialist planks to mollify opposition and nullify the power of those spoiler votes. But if that helped the looters meet political payrolls, so much the better. Republicans–likewise terrified by spoiler votes–copied Dixiecrat and National Socialist planks out of tactical desperation, and held onto the resulting coercive policies for similar reasons.

But the LP works to reduce coercion, is therefore baaad, and must be crushed the way Nixon intended. The key verb is works. Purportedly apartisan lobbies actually function as smokescreens. Remember the espionage detachments sent out to plant fake intelligence to occlude the fact that Alan Turing and friends at Bletchley Park broke the German Enigma code? Nowadays fake libertarian-impersonator parties–all of them eager to dehumanize pregnant women and doctors–serve as decoys to keep folks from finding the real thing. This is because the real thing gets results. We win.

The glorious struggle of looter parties in These States today is to convince libertarians that every libertarian vote that causes a looter politician to lose to a slightly less evil looter politician is a wasted vote. This lie is pressed forth with added vigor whenever the result forces both looter parties to repeal bad laws and discard suicidal platform planks. Even Ayn Rand fell for this cheap bluff. Winning is repealing bad laws. This works as well as overthrowing bad governments but is cheaper, faster, and overthrows them just the same.

When attacking lobbies fails, the gloves will probably come off and looters will openly name the Libertarian Party with tarbrushes. But with the Nixon subsidies pumping tax dollars into entrenched kleptocracy campaigns, an alarmingly large number of Americans is still unaware there is a party dedicated to individual rights, personal freedom and the robust economy that results from the combination of the two.

Russians got rid of their looter dictatorship and are increasingly Libertarian, so why not Americans?

Either-Or, revisited

You can deal with people by persuasion, that is, voluntarily. The alternative is to do it by force, that is, by threatening to harm or kill them, then killing a statistical sample to show the survivors you mean business. Nearly all who opt for the use of force try to disguise the fact even from themselves–by appeals to altruism. The economic systems that result from each of these alternatives converge on libertarian or totalitarian solutions.

Germany’s Christian National Socialism and Soviet Communism have clearly identified themselves in practice as genocidal slave camps. The two régimes are indistinguishable to anyone save their own brainwashees. Here is how appreciation of the two alternative political systems is shaping up as measured by the ballots cast by voters.

Communism in Russia judged as shown by vote share given to the Communist Party:

Communist religion is fast losing congregants

The trendline shown is a logarithmic decay curve of communist party votes.

The vertical axis is the communist percentage of the votes counted in the past five admittedly rigged and tampered Russian elections.

Libertarian Party popularity in These United States is shaping up as follows:

Voluntary persuasion replaces initiation of harmful and deadly force

US libertarian party vote share data fitted to a sigmoid replacement curve.

These graphs show that the pseudoscientific superstition known as socialism is declining in popularity as fast as its Papist and Lutheran competitors (nationalsocialism). Force-initiating dictatorial political philosophies are being replaced by ethical values that uphold the rights of individuals.

You can hasten this transition by donating to and voting for Libertarian Party candidates (the kind who wrote the 1972 platform language the Supreme Court used in its 1973 Roe v. Wade decision). Voting Republican is ethically the same as supporting German National Socialism. Voting for the Democratic soft machine strengthens the communist and lay socialist ideology that now controls the Democratic party. Both parties have fallen into the hands of violent looters. Your libertarian vote gives them an incentive to snap out of it and focus on reality.

Why voting Libertarian works

Why would anyone bother to drum up votes for the Libertarian party?

Read' em and weep, looters!

Libertarian share of votes earned in national elections.

Why ask for libertarian votes? Simple. Every such vote benefits ME, not the Kleptocracy candidate, by getting rid of violent laws.  Every time Ram Johnston loses an election by 3% when the Libertarian Candidate got 2% of the vote, that–like a smack upside the head–is a learning experience. For a Texas State Legislator, the loss of pay comes to $43,000 (not counting bribes and kickbacks).  Women voters who want to keep birth control safe and legal need not help the Democrats make electricity scarce and unaffordable. The Libertarian Party platform of 1972 wrote the Roe v. Wade decision into law with fewer than 4000 votes nationwide. Comstock Law Republican and Prohibition Party organizers are painfully aware of this fact, though they struggle to evade it. Your vote can count if it replaces a bad 19th-Century party with a good 20th-Century party that values freedom and individual rights.

Here is what a logistical substitution curve looks like. This is how the Whigs replaced the Federalists, and Red Republicans replaced the Whig Party.

Freedom replacing Left=Right coercive collectivism

The Libertarian vote share curve starts at 0 but never reaches 100% in a democracy.

Technically competent individuals who understand that electrical power generation drastically reduces the death rate are free to vote Libertarian. You need not help Republican-funded militarized police crowd prisons, shoot foreigners and confiscate property because mystical pseudoscience says to ban plant leaves. Conscientious voters change bad laws by keeping their integrity. Simple arithmetic makes voting for candidates that support the Libertarian Party Platform the most effective use of the franchise.  The only wasted vote is one that tells violent looters to keep trying to ban electricity, prohibit plants and repeal the Bill of Rights.

Energy enables eudaimonia

Interfering with energy increases the death rate

I am asking naturalized citizens to vote Libertarian and resident aliens to contribute to Libertarian campaigns.  The hardest part is helping voters understand that your vote should benefit YOU, not some force-initiating politician. I prove this with algebra showing 1.4% of the vote in 11 campaigns brought the 18th Amendment which caused the Great Depression. Earlier, 9% of the 1892 vote brought an income tax law, so if 9% has the law-changing clout of 51%, then each People’s Party vote counted for six Republican or Democrat votes in terms of its effectiveness in forcing at least one of the soft machine factions to change its platform. These are examples of spoiler vote leverage.

Solving the 1892 equation for x yields 6. This shows us that every populist vote had six times the law-changing power of a vote wasted on a machine politician. In the Prohibition case, 1.4% of the vote made beer a felony as if it were the same as 51%. So set 1.4x=51, x=36 means every such vote packed 36 times more law-changing clout. This is the mechanism whereby the entire Socialist platform of 1920 became law by 1980, even with the candidates all losing.

The libertarian party is simply reversing that process. Hitler, Stalin, Franco, Lenin, Mussolini, Ceaușescu and Pol Pot have demonstrated the legal and economic results of socialism via historical events not on record in 1913. That was the year American voters believed the Communist Manifesto income tax was a good idea.

Do you have a good idea that needs translation for a larger audience?

Libertarian hockey stick

A little money riding on the Maple Leafs

Speak Softly, and carry a Hockey Stick! Special thanks to Online Curve Fitting

Organized coercion is fond of graphs that indicate growing popularity of a pretext for forcing folks. The hockey stick analogy is by now so overused as to have become an embarrassment to pseudoscientists of the looter persuasion–mainly because it has made no impression whatsoever on thermometers. 

Voters, on the other hand, are deciding–in accelerating numbers–that the initiation of force has had its opportunity to produce results worth having. Entrenched, subsidized Kleptocracy parties are stalled. Unable to attract voters, they successfully depict each other as repellent, dangerous, socially evil. Both such parties depict the Communist Manifesto income tax and the subsidies their electioneering receives from the IRS as necessary and good.

The Libertarian party, as you see, has been growing as in the graph showing the vote shares earned since the Y2k panic and New Millerite Climate Armageddon prophesying craze set in. Based on the last 5 elections, the above amateur sigmoid replacement curve fit suggests a Libertarian majority by 2074. Leveraged spoiler vote clout will meanwhile repeal and pacify much of the violence of law you see whenever the initiation of force is the preferred modus operandi.

No violence needed, and we don’ need no steenkin revolution. Simply cast your vote for the peace and freedom platform and opportunistic politicians will make change happen or be replaced trying to keep pushing aggression and coercion. A small donation couldn’t hurt, and will definitely bear dividends. Increasing freedom is winning!

Libertarian Impersonator False Flag

Laura Ebke?

“Elected” Libertarians?

 

The Anti-Choice movement, coercive by definition, has since 1976 been attempting to infiltrate the Libertarian Party in a belated effort to defeat the Roe v. Wade decision which the Supreme Court copied from the 1972 Libertarian Party Overpopulation plank.

1972 LP plank: “We further support the repeal of all laws restricting voluntary birth control or voluntary termination of pregnancies during their first hundred days.”
Jan 22 1973, Roe v. Wade decision: “(a) For the stage prior to approximately the end of the first trimester, the abortion decision and its effectuation must be left to the medical judgment of the pregnant woman’s attending physician. …”

In the intervening 11 campaigns Prohibitionist Republicans have tried to reinstate coathanger abortions and lost five times, mainly thanks to leftover Soviet anti-energy planks still in the Democratic platform. Since the Bush Asset Forfeiture Crash and Depression, a wave of prohibition repeal not seen since 1932 sweeps the nation, and God’s Own Prohibitionists have come up with a desperate Trojan Horse strategy: Inject an antichoice state legislator into the LP as a faithless defector bearing a package deal of gifts which includes guns pointed at Planned Parenthood physicians. Sound farfetched?

In 1992 a reasonably pro-rights Republican Senator, Arlen “Magic Bullet” Specter, was running for reelection. All of a sudden a coercive male zealot, John Perry, posing as a libertarian, got into the race thanks to dereliction on the part of the Pennsylvania Libertarian Party. The slip is particularly embarrassing since Philadelphia is the cradle of the Liberal Party. That party’s prohibition repeal plank was co-opted by the Democrats in 1932, a move that resulted in Democratic victories in five consecutive elections. Like The Atlantic magazine, the LP showed the male impostor the door. This is ordinary integrity–loyalty to one’s ethical principles.

The cross-dressing Libertarian impersonator elected by Republican votes is Sen. Laura Ebke of Nebraska’s 32nd district. The Greek gifts she bears are deregulation of bribe-dominated professions and partial clemency for persons branded felons by the Kleptocracy for associating with some plant leaves. Ebke’s cold deck is an offer to hand back a tiny portion of the individual rights previously sequestered by God’s Own Prohibitionists, in exchange for Libertarian acceptance of a planted impostor whom Nebraska Libertarians voted against. Here’s the Ram Johnston gunpoint coercion position, complete with misleading label:

Let me state unequivocally my personal positionI am Pro-Life. –Laura Ebke

The set-up has already brought panhandling spam from the LP in support of this Republican bait-and-switch trap. What remains to be seen is whether this particular sting, doubtless patterned after a John Grisham novel (Runaway Jury), will lure innocent Libertarian voters into betraying the individual rights won for women when Toni Nathan and John Hospers placed our platform before the voters and conquered individual rights for women.

One expects the Wall Street Journal to come shilling for Republican infiltrators. But this particular fake libertarian switcheroo has been convincing enough to take in LP fund-raisers and Reason Magazine. Their error, which the predators exploit, is to imagine that we need sitting politicians rather than libertarian spoiler votes in order to strike down bad laws. This red herring bait serves only to reinforce reliance on people, rather than the principles voters expect the party do defend with focussed integrity.

People of Nebraska, don’t fall for it. It’s a set-up! Swap your votes for leveraged Libertarian support in other districts if you can, but do not fall for this desperate false flag maneuver! The Republican/Prohibition Axis of Evil is gulling you to increase its lopsided control over your State by switching in a double for an additional 2%.
