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 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!

Spotting Fake Libertarians

LP spoiler vote Clout Party!

Bludgeoning Angel Dokuro-chan

The Libertarian Party is the only political party in These United States that is growing.

Mathematician needed for curve-fitting in substitution model

We need a least-squares fit to the Fisher-Pry equation

It is also the only party in the world NOT dedicated to the initiation of force. Naturally, procurers for looter parties hang around libertarian venues seeking to lure away voters and undermine the LP platform.

Republican trolls and infiltrators, invariably mystical fascists ashamed of their confederates’ past misdeeds, are fond of prophesying in the future tense as a way of palling up to and retasking libertarian voters. These right-wing zealots avoid discussion of how spoiler votes changed the Comstock laws they seek to preserve, and how prohibitionist asset forfeiture and confiscations cause liquidity crises and depressions. Here are some of the fabrications, red herrings, false prophesy and snow jobs they peddle in their zeal for prohibition laws.

“No true Scotsman” will doom the libertarian party to always being an outsider. (But outsiders cast spoiler votes which change laws)

No hope for libertarian political success until the culture changes first. (But repealing bad laws is success)

Betteridge’s law of headlines says the LP will fail. Duverger’s Law says the LP must inevitably fail. (Such pseudoscience makes bad laws)

The problem is that the Libertarian Party has zero interest in actually winning an elective office. (But to non-parasites, winning is repealing bad laws)

We repealed Comstock Laws in Roe v Wade

Spoiler votes are Bludgeoning Angels!

Democratic party procurers, basically the socialist laity, are also strangers-with-candy for clueless-but-impressionable youngsters. Dems lost by almost 3 million votes. Libertarians got over 4 million votes! Why? Youngsters are what the Dem platform says to jail because of plant leaves. Shadenfreude’s too good for them. Their cant also evades mention of how spoiler votes in the past changed the laws to suit their econazi altruism-with-government-guns agenda.

Look at the graph: the LP does not want an Amendment to force women to reproduce at gunpoint!

The Drumpf presidency is such an emergency that “we” can’t currently afford the luxury of protest votes.

(Hahaha!)

The looter parasites the Democratic party chooses as politicians are still programmed by Soviet brainwashing to oppose anything that might help These States defeat International Socialism in a shooting war with nuclear weapons unholstered. Their snouts went into the trough because Bush Dynasty faith-based asset-forfeiture prohibitionism again wrecked the economy in 2007 as in 1929-33, 1987-92 and people schooled in how financial markets work understood that nothing could be worse than another coathanger-worshipping mystical Republican looter.

But Green spoiler votes (in reality Ralph Nader personality votes) frightened the Dems into promising to do everything to ban electric power plants just as they promised simpletons who don’t know any better that they would pass Kristallnacht laws banning guns in the presence of the Bill of Rights. Every democrat who lost lost because of this obsolete Soviet brainwashing meme having acquired momentum of its own in both the US and NATO nations.

Look at the graph: the LP does not want to ban electric power.

Libertarian Party Jurisprudence

Voters who have never read a party platform are told that to cast a vote on principle is to “waste your vote.” The verifiable fact is: your spoiler votes for Libertarian Party candidates repeal bad laws. Today’s example is a woman’s right to undo her unwanted pregnancy. How was that right asserted and made law? 

The LP legalized abortion

Read the original

The Libertarian Party Platform of June 17, 1972 said:

“We further support the repeal of all laws restricting voluntary birth control or voluntary termination of pregnancies during their first hundred days.”

LP Candidates were John Hospers and Tonie Nathan. Ours was the first viable party to field a lady candidate for vice-president and secure for her an electoral vote–12 years before the Dems finally followed our lead. The popular election was 7 November of 1972, and electoral votes were counted in December.

On January 22, 1973, 45 days after the electoral votes were counted the Supreme Court decided in ROE v. WADE:

“(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. …”

That most important part of the Supreme Court decision was a perfect logical paraphrasis of the Libertarian plank on abortion. Much effort was expended to distance the decision from the first three words of the 14th Amendment: “All persons born…” These three words speak to the rights of individuals, but were NOT the reason the court struck down coathanger abortion laws in states notorious for mystical bigotry. The Supreme court was manned by five Republicans and three Democrats, and had been mulling this case since the first baby steps toward organizing a Libertarian Party.

Already the LP.org was against military conscription–which had just coerced 58,000 Americans to their deaths in Vietnam, formerly a French opium regie. But the Supreme Court had already committed to that version of slavery and involuntary servitude for WWI. Republicans–white and Christian like the Germans who voted for National Socialism–were terrified. Republicans feared not communism, essentially the same thing as nationalsocialism, but the “activated atheism” they associated with the Communist faith. Republicans had reason to fear that the widows and girlfriends of the boys they’d sacrificed were ready for bloody vengeance at the polls. Democrats had ditched the Klan and voted Wet in the 1932 economic collapse, and made out very well. So Democratic Justices again betrayed Southern mystical bigotry by copying the Libertarian plank, as Dems had copied the Liberal party repeal plank to defeat Herbert Hoover and elect FDR.

Nixon had tried to crush the LP within 24 hours of its formation by using the IRS to bribe the media with tax money. That politician took office, gingerly stepping over the scorched relics of the usual looter opposition–Socialist, Socialist Labor, People’s, Prohibition and Communist party–but fearing the 3674 Libertarian votes. Those votes have since grown a thousand times and now total 4 million.

21x the Clout!

Winning is changing the laws. See original

Since 1971 the Libertarian Party has been the prime mover for deregulation, repeal of censorship, defense of individual rights, non-entanglement in foreign affairs and the general increase in freedom. We are the reason God’s Own Prohibitionists finally backed away from coercing gay voters before the recent election–and the appeal to laissez-faire has also spread to more than 20 countries. The only brutal dictatorships left on earth are governments that block libertarians from organizing into political parties. Think about that next time someone is tortured or beheaded.

Ayn Rand balks British

arevoltadeatlas

Atlas & the Fountainhead in Portuguese

Most Brits simply cannot Grok Ayn Rand. This is hardly surprising when you consider that Atlas Shrugged freezes the thinking of most Americans conditioned by government schools and teevee…  

Just as a host makes parasite survival possible, so a large political party can artificially extend the life of a parasitical cult or ideology. History is full of such things. The Whigs with their Tariff of Abominations permanently alienated the Colonial South, represented by The Slaveholding Democracy.

High-tariff politicians were thenceforth centered in open iron gunsights by Democratic partisans of the day. Abolitionists deserted the Whigs as ineffective wimps. Karl Marx’ altruistic communist party in Germany seized upon “graduated income tax” as a source of someone else’s substance in the midst of a depression wrought by disruption of the opium trade in China and related Indian mutinies. Because this verifiable explanation of the Great Depression of the USA in what the Disraeli called the  “hungry forties” is avoided in government schools or detoured by exaggeration of the Irish potato famine, a digression is in order.

Britain had become a colonial parasite on primitive China and India both. Defeated by the US in the wars of Independence and 1812, Cornwallis was transferred to India and the loose agglomeration of Hindu and Moslem tribes whipped into agricultural production of opium and indigo, much like the American South had been transformed by the lash into colonial cotton plantations under British rule. After China in 1837 expelled the opium traders, capital was withdrawn from US municipal bonds and other securities and poured into the opium wars. That and a bad winter, possibly exacerbated by fallout from an Icelandic volcano, made Europe fertile soil for a looter kleptocracy. Communism and socialism sounded better than looter kleptocracy and so those party denominations were ingrained by repetition.

Britain’s chief concern in the Gilded Era was the expansion of chemical slavery by exportation of morphine–an ambition lustily shared by France, Prussia, Germany and Austro-Hungary (and to a lesser extent Switzerland and Holland). But the dumping of addictive narcotics in China again broke down after the revolution of 1911 made it possible for the Chinese republic to again ban poppy drugs. In this China was abetted by the guilt-ridden Roosevelt, Taft and Wilson Administrations, through Pure Food and Drug laws and the Hague Opium Agreements detrimental to the traffic. German and Austrian morphine came from Balkan opium. As prices collapsed in the wake of interruption of the China dumping, war broke out in the region and escalated into WWI.

Britain’s most pressing concern after the Great War was how to squirm out of repaying the loans taken from American banks to throttle the Accursed Hun. The entire interwar period was one of renewed imperial parasitism on primitive colonies–and on the foolish creditors of those same morphine exporters who went to war in 1914 to evade the Hague Opium accord. This was the era in which Ayna Rosenbaum was educated in Russia, fled communism to These States in 1926, and witnessed the Crash and Depression wrought by a combination of American alcohol prohibition, prosecution of sugar and yeast companies under tax and conspiracy laws, and the squirming of European Pharmacy metropolises to evade controls on addictive poppy drugs and skip out on loan repayment and reparations collections.

To the Americans, WWI became inconvenient when Germany exported communism to Russia and that ideology toppled the Russian Empire. To save their loans, American bankers and industrialists had the Congress conscript youngsters to turn the fortunes of war in favor of the drug-peddling debtors whose notes they held.

President Warren Gamaliel Harding, a hard-drinking, drug-taking philanderer was the women voters’ choice in 1920. His exploits, retold by his love-child’s mom Nan Britton, coupled with the adventures of “missing” Los Angeles evangelist Aimee Semple McPherson, are revived in unobtrusive background splendor in the pages of Atlas Shrugged. The novel was written by that same Russian immigrant writing under her Ayn Rand pseudonym. Herbert Hoover, HL Mencken and other colorful characters are mirrored in the cast.

The history of the British Empire of that day is by contrast a sordid set of setbacks in colonial parasitism of Egypt, India, Iran, Burma… awash in cheap opium. Celebrity appearances are provided by Mahatma Gandhi (preaching non-initiation of force) and Miss Brenda Dean, debutante of London drug party scandals. George Orwell’s writings record Burmese misery and the dreary preoccupation of looter populists exploiting the baffled hunger of illiterate proletarians to curry favor with British Fascists or communist-infiltrated Labour cliques.

So OF COURSE the familiar media story chords exploited by Ayn Rand differ completely from the social milieu prevailing in the British Isles during the interwar period that framed the backdrop to Atlas Shrugged–except, perhaps, in the town of Starnesville. British intellectuals are oblivious of or baffled by the struggles of 1930 American Liberal Party liberals (not looters) against totalitarian prohibitionists. And prohibitionists are the very creatures the pub-drinking British themselves struggled against–to keep pubs open and the better to compete in narcotics export markets with France, Switzerland and Germany.

Small wonder they never brag about these things, but it goes a long way toward explaining the bovine incomprehension of Britishers confronted with American libertarian values. Like our Liberal Party forbears of 1930, American Libertarians apply the power of spoiler votes as a lever to pry parasitical hangers-on from the major parties. The Republican party is threatened by potential bleeding off of spoiler votes by declining remnants of three religious fanatic parties concerned with prohibiting sex and drugs. The Democratic party–ever the party of slavery–relies on the declining remnants of communism. The Green Party and CPUSA are reliable purveyors of “global warming” hobgoblins as justification for government suppression of industrial production in Western mixed economies. Their spoiler votes are still a dying bindweed coiling about the ankles of the Democratic Party. Do not despair… Libertarian spoiler votes increased 328% in the 2015 election, and these votes pack law-changing clout.

The threat to civilization today is religious fanaticism as pushed by the Republicans, Islamic berserker-states, communist collectivists, papal states and ku-klux entities committed to the coercion of females against their will. The libertarian party alone is for the time being relatively free of those parasites. Its platform therefore contains no promises to have the police gun down children, confiscate innocent assets, throttle industrial access to energy and purchase votes with transfer payments from producers to non-producers.
