Voter Suppression, 1931

Voter Suppression under Prohibition

Read the original stories (link) (link)

Beer was a felony, and Herbert Hoover was sworn to use federal agents to enforce the Women’s Christian Temperance Union’s war on getting high. The Methodist Board of Temperance, Prohibition and Public Morals declared all police shootings justified, with total immunity for the dry killers. The Liberal Party was formed by Pittsburgh Pennsylvania businessmen to run Thomas W. Phillips for governor on a platform to repeal prohibition. Socialist candidates avoided discussing prohibition, calling it a “red herring.” See Socialist Head Hails Cleanup.(link)

The idea was to eliminate a wishy-washy “moist” Republican named Francis Shunk Brown, and nominate Gifford Pinchot–a fanatical dry who even censored beer and hip flask scenes from movies at local theaters. Stage two of the plan was to defeat the hated Pinchot in an up-or-down vote on Prohibition.(link) The second stage called for throwing Liberal Party support to defeat dry bigot Pinchot and elect the proudly wet Democrat John Hemphill. This is the classic third-party chessboard maneuvering the looter kleptocracy fears most.(link)

Phillips’ candidacy eliminated the spineless Brown. There followed a race in which Republican Gifford Pinchot beat Democrat Hemphill by 5% thanks to a last minute patronage agreement with the Pittsburgh soft machine. This maneuver mooted the 366,572 votes, or 15% of the total, cast by Phillips’ Liberal supporters for Hemphill, the only Democrat the Liberal Party endorsed. The same paper elided mention of Phillips, and misnamed the Liberal Party the Liberay Party after the election.(link)

Kleptocracy looters lose 1931

Third party spoiler votes change everything!

That edition also mentioned the “almost forgotten Prohibition party” at the bottom of page 2.(link) One year later Herbert Hoover would be tossed out of office after every bank in the nation closed its doors, with the Dems winning the first of five consecutive elections. The Party of Principle seen its chances and took them to rid the nation of the primary cause of the Great Depression. The other causes, plant leaf prohibition and the individual income tax, are only now nearing repeal thanks to the Libertarian Party’s spoiler vote clout.

Let Her Speak

 

Four years ago a woman came within 80,000 votes of winning the presidential election according to Vanity Fair.(link)

Today two males representing looter prohibitionist parties are asking for your vote. Your vote for Trump or Biden’s platforms will keep police looking for ways to shoot your child using plant leaves as an excuse. Should the child survive, that will mean the addition of another victimless person to the world’s largest prison system. Both legacy parties are cruel, dishonest and violent. Thanks to the Libertarian Party may choose between the old coercive kleptocracy and a new dawn–not being bullied at gunpoint

The Democratic and Republican parties are about the initiation of force. Any murders, no matter how heinous or cowardly, they will again write of as the price “we” must pay for eugenics, or climate pseudoscience, or the worship of their invisible friends, or some imagined conspiracy by selfish egoists. I say again because this happened before already.(link

From 1938 to May of 1945, Christian National Socialist Germany systematically disarmed, arrested, enslaved and exterminated millions of Jews on the Eugenic theory that they were born selfish, whereas Christians are born altruists, and the world had to be made safe for altruism. This is still the ideology of the Republican Party.(link

From 1919 through the 1930s, Soviet communists systematically enslaved and mass-murdered Ukraine farmers to steal their grain. The pretext was that they were selfishly hoarding seed grain from the glorious altruist revolution that just accidentally left everyone but party officials in starvation and pestilence. This is the ideology of the Democratic Party.(link)

Cowards casting votes for either gang of violent looters will of course see these charges not as falsehoods, but as exaggeration or too bluntly put. Republicans will argue that only a few teenagers are murdered by the looter police or coathanger abortions they insist on perpetuating. Dems will likewise claim that all criticism of socialist regimes are lies, fake news, and that even if the Russian, Chinese, Vietnamese, East German, Romanian, Cuban, Angolan and Guyana communists hosted “a few” mass murders, their altruistic motives plainly justified those actions.(link

Republicans agree with Hitler in Gemeinnutz vor Eigennutz (the Greater Good before the Individual Good) in the interest of “Positive Christianity,” and Mussolini’s Credere, Obbedire, Combattere. Democrats nowadays agree with nationalsocialists that altruistic motives justify the initiation of force, but that “the” other party “isn’t really” altruistic in its sacrifice of individuals on the altar of prohibitionist purity or in the war on race suicide.(link

spoiling for a fight

Nineteen million votes said to keep electricity, enjoyable leaves, women’s rights and self-defense uncoerced.

By merely LISTENING to what Jo Jorgensen has to say you undermine the power of these bloated entrenched kleptocracy forces–with their secret police and no-knock warrants–to confiscate everything you own for no reason. Well over 4 million libertarian spoiler votes upset China’s plans to have the Dems ban electrical power.  Nineteen million votes from municipal races to federal office were cast in support of the Libertarian Platform. Does spoiler voting work? Seen any draft cards lately? So yeah, let her speak!

Tarl’s Trump Commercial

Tarl is the only intelligent commentator in favor of wasting a vote on Trump’s Republican party.

And here is Trump himself giving reasons why–if you value the U.S. economy–you should vote for Libertarian Candidate Jo Jorgensen and not any of the geriatric entrenched prohibitionist kleptocracy candidates. Southern Command is a branch of the U.S. military charged with invading, robbing, kidnapping and murdering foreign citizens and elected politicians in pseudoscientific zealotry to prohibit plant leaves in other people’s territories. (link)

Kill! kill! kill! and we was both jumpin up and down hollering

Trump rally for support in armed invasion of neighboring countries to suppress plant leaves with OUR money and lives (link)

For the benefit of Democratic Party readersGeriatric: relating to old people, especially with regard to their health care. Cf a geriatric hospital. Prohibitionist: the action of forbidding something, especially by law Cf Joe Biden, Mandatory Minimums, Bush Dynasty, Herbert Hoover, Crash, Depression

For the benefit of Republican Party readers: Entrenched: firmly established and difficult or unlikely to change; ingrained: an entrenched resistance to change. Kleptocracy: a cabal that uses political power to steal its country’s resources.

Hockey stick for Libertarians!

Libertarian vote share after Bush asset-forfeiture crash

For the benefit of any who believe in wasting their potentially law-changing spoiler vote to instead legitimize coercion at the hands of an entrenched looter politician: Winning: gaining, resulting in, or relating to victory in a contest or competition; changing bad laws–NOT the act of electing some grinning politician to rob murder and enslave you a minute slower than some equally ruthless murderer.

Spoiler Votes: Evolution in action

Spoiler vote evolution for change

Spoiler vote evolution in action: prohibitionists, socialists, averaging 2% of the vote. Votes above the horizontal line covered the gap between parties gaining and losing a hand in the till. Tall bars that did not cover the gap still exert great pressure for change on entrenched parties.

WINNING!

Libertarian votes are replacing Kleptocracy votes like CDs replaced vinyl LPs

Evolution is a process whereby DNA-based living things adapt themselves to reality in order to survive. Failure to deal with the facts of reality results in increased attrition, that is, death rate. Political systems evolve similarly. A century ago dead monarchies were washing ashore, replaced by democracies or dictatorships relying on a modified form of brainwashing and coercion. The Federalist Party went extinct, its niche occupied by the Whig, then by red Republican partisans. None of this happened overnight, but the 1st World War sped up the process. The 2nd raised the potential cost of aggression to levels that voters realize they cannot afford. The initiation of force now entails risk of retaliation with nuclear and biological weapons.

The logistical replacement curve above shows that voters are increasingly aware of this risk and acting to reduce it. Looter parties are also aware of this shift, and increasingly meddle with elections through subsidies, voter suppression, gerrymandering, intimidation, propaganda, character and actual assassination, trumped-up charges, infiltrators, agents provocateur, tarbrushing, sabotage, arson and violence–and not just in the United States. 

Comunists abolish elections

Russian voters increasingly shun the Communist Party, so Putin seeks appointment as Dictator For Life instead of more elections. Trends matter!

Since our own War Between the States, small looter parties fattened on Marx, Bellamy, Howells, London and less literate but still active communist anarchists. The constitution was mutated by artificial selection favoring the initiation of force, resulting in the Income Tax, Prohibition and direct Senate election amendments.

From 1868 to 1968 there was not a single party dedicated to the increase of freedom. All of them sought to maximize coercion–especially the seizure of other people’s goods. Young men had to choose between exile, prison or meddling as foreign murderers. Plant leaves were good for a prison term and forfeiture of assets. American women were conscripted in a eugenic War Against “Race Suicide”–the sort of law even Catholic Ireland has since repealed.

When Irish sights are open

Irishwoman before Libertarianism

All that changed when the Libertarian Party platform earned a ten thousandth of half the vote, and with one electoral vote assisted the Supreme Court in the defense of the individual rights of women. For the past 48 years voters have increasingly realized they can vote for individual rights for women without endorsing communism. Voters can reject entangling alliances and transfer payments from producers to non-producers without endorsing fascism. It is now possible to vote for economic freedom without attacking individual rights, and vice-versa.

We got 4 million presidential votes in 2016, up 328%, plus a similar number of votes in down-ballot State and county elections won by several of our candidates. A clout-wielding, law-changing Libertarian spoiler vote is never wasted. A vote for the Kleptocracy is a ballot wasted as 0.00000007% of the votes endorsing increased coercion, violence, war, debt, imprisonment, shooting of youth over plant leaves, torture of Americans abroad, and menacing of doctors who offer birth control. Your libertarian vote packs about 20 times the law-changing clout, and changes the laws to favor freedom, not add coercion.(link)

LP candidate meets the press-gang

Like nearly all actual libertarians I was thrilled to see Jo Jorgensen beat Das Boothead, Angry Shellshocked Vet, Hanging Judge Dred and other uninspiring contestants. And it is a pity that a goofy voting system kept her from having Jacob Hornberger as the competent Vice-Presidential candidate she and I preferred.(link) But her first “friendly” LPTV interview could have gone better. 

Jo agreeing with prohibitionist characterizations? (link)

So now what we have is a community of poor people, because the government put them all in one place, where they can’t help each other, and guess what’s the only way you can drive a Mercedes? The only way you can drive a Mercedes is if you sell drugs. So now, what the government has created is an enclosed community, without fathers, and the only role model is the drug dealer, who’s got the, the great jewelry and the Mercedes. And now we’ve got a criminal as the role model. It is just tragedy what the government has done to motivation and incentive.

So… prohibition scofflaws are bad people who buy fossil-guzzlers from The Accursed Hun? Contrast THAT with what HL Mencken said about “drug” dealers back when light beer was a hard time felony

What is needed, obviously, is a new hero for the infantry of the land, for if one is not quickly supplied there is some danger that the boys will begin admiring Y.M.C.A. secretaries, crooked members of the Cabinet and lecturers on sex hygiene. In this emergency I nominate the bootlegger not, of course, the abject scoundrel who peddles bogus Scotch in clubs and office buildings, but the dashing, romantic, defiant fellow who brings the stuff up from Bimini. He is the true heir, not only of the old-time Indian fighters and train-robbers, but also of the tough and barnacled deep-water sailors, now no more. He faces the perils of the high seas in a puny shallop, and navigates the worst coast in the world in contempt of the wind and storm. Think of him lying out there on wild nights in winter, with the waves piling mountain-high and the gale standing his crazy little craft on her beam! Think of him creeping in in his motorboat on Christmas Eve, risking his life that the greatest of Christian festivals may be celebrated in a Christian and respectable manner! …

This brave lad is not only the heir of Jesse James and Ned Buntline; he is also the heir of John Hancock and all of the other heroes who throttled the accursed Hun in 1776. All the most gallant among them were smugglers, and in their fragile craft they brought in not only rum but also liberty. The Revolution was not only against the person of the Potsdam tyrant, George III; it was also, and especially, against harsh and intolerable laws the worst of them the abhorrent Stamp Act. But was the Stamp Act worse than Prohibition? I leave it to any fair man. Prohibition, in fact, is a hundred times as foul, false, oppressive and tyrannical. (link)

Quick to learn, however, our candidate gave a much better account of herself before the Public Brainwashing System interrogator over at Nationalsocialist Public Radio: 

SIMON: I’ve got to ask you about your running mate. His name is Spike Cohen. He calls himself an anarchist. He says he’s running to troll the system. He has a platform that promises, as I understand it, free ponies and a Waffle House on every corner.

JORGENSEN: I believe you are reciting the presidential platform of one of my competitors who lost, and Spike is now on my team. And so no, that’s not our platform.

SIMON: Well, it’s not your platform. You mean – are you saying Spike Cohen never said that?

JORGENSEN: What I’m saying is now that Spike Cohen has joined my team, we’ve got a combined platform that is mine. (link)

Already Jo is deftly coping with the humiliation of having a communist anarchist impostor thrust on her campaign by machinations of the Anschluss Caucus.(link) Good work! 

Monteiro Lobato wrote a pro-American book bristling with eugenics and endorsements of Prohibition in 1926. Here is the science fiction story of the U.S. presidential election of the year 2228, translated into English by J Henry Phillips. (link)

Pascal’s Wager v. Freedom

Nobody can know anything

Are facts unknowable before death?

There was a time when politicians called attention to their party’s platform, predicting that its planks would benefit undecided voters. The obverse strategy, now in vogue, claims that the opposition candidate’s secret plans are an existential threat to the life and liberty of the voter being gulled, and to the future of all life on earth. Only the looter demanding your vote pretends to know anything. In its epistemology, the premise is that you cannot know the facts–not until AFTER you’re dead–so there is no point in trying. Instead, you should play it safe, obey, believe what the persuader is telling you.(link) Since the other premise is that you’ll be dead before you could possibly notice it’s a lie, as the conundrum is set up, you can only lose by disobeying the instruction to sacrifice knowledge and settle instead for belief.

screw the Bill of Rights!

No ABM! Freeze and Surrender!

This was the argument against the Second Amendment during the Cold War, and it persuaded Richard Nixon and his Republicans to betray the Bill of Rights. If Tricky were right, he’d be no worse off than Quisling or Petain.(link) If wrong, the communists assured him all life on Earth would end and it wouldn’t be their fault–all they ever do is initiate the use of force–just like Republicans. It was a slow-motion replay of the Molotov-Ribbendtop pact, but with America, not Poland, in the victim’s hood.

A similar gambit nowadays is the “argument” persuading 12-year-olds against generation of electric power, or persons innocent of mathematical sophistry against voting for candidates running on the Libertarian Party platform. Conservatism on both the fascist and communist sides seeks to keep the same decrepit parties in power, and crush new ones in the cradle lest their spoiler votes repeal tax laws.(link

13th Amendment Superhero

Energy Slaves, not Human Slaves!

Energy nihilists reject the R Bucky Fuller notion of energy as our working servant, and will settle for nothing less than a reversion to actual human slavery. Asking for evidence, of course, merely identifies you as an apostate, infidel, denier–precisely at this delicate juncture that is the tipping-point beyond which “Abandon All Hope” prevails.(link) This is unless you repent and believe that “Arbeit Macht Frei” and vote some looter ticket. Nevermind that its congregants do not know the definition of energy and are unsullied by any grasp of its dimensions or units of measure.(link) People who are against energy invariably favor coercion as the approach to problem-solving.

Nolan's wager

Vote for what you value, and that vote will help make it happen–with added interest!

Political nihilists are baffled by consistency. Your one vote in 133 million does nothing to change an election outcome–unless you leverage that vote by casting it for the Libertarian ticket. Then when a prohibitionist bigot loses by a smaller margin than the LP vote slice, a message is received. That candidate suddenly realizes that girl-bullying or ordering cops to shoot kids just cost an entire series of government paychecks.

Conversely, when libertarian spoiler votes cause some nonreligious totalitarian to lose to someone not in favor of higher taxes and collectivized rights charged to others at gunpoint, that message is not soon forgotten.(link) Losing, to activists in both looter parties, means not getting hired. To libertarians, winning is changing bad laws.(link)

All you have to do is vote honestly for legal policies you prefer and, if these are libertarian, your vote packs something like 20 times the law-changing clout. The Pascal’s Wager bluff did not make you surrender and fold your hand, but call and compare the strength or your convictions with fake kleptocracy premises, thereby raising the stakes by adding your own values to the table. This is a win-win approach to getting rid of bad laws.(link)

The Anarchy Fallacy

division by zero is wrong

Approaching 0 is different from putting 0 in the denominator.

A theory popular among folks who never cracked a logic or math book was that anarchism is “the logical end-product” of communism. That changed in 1972 when under 4000 Libertarian votes for John Hospers and Toni Nathan generated one consistent and uncorrupted electoral vote and changed important laws.

Nowadays, intellectuals of the looter persuasion din everyone within earshot with the amended revealed truth that anarchism is “the logical end-product” of liberalism or libertarianism. Orwell commented on this sort of flip-flop when he explained how English socialists abhorred nationalsocialism until the Hitler-Stalin pact–AFTER which they promptly granted that fascism was, after all, a form of socialism, hence not all that bad.

AisA

Before trying to axiomatize a thing, it pays to examine what the thing does and doesn’t mean to begin with. There were communist anarchists all over the map, firing shots and exploding bombs in crowded places, when Max Weber spun off an objective and useful definition of government as “a human community that (successfully) claims the monopoly of the legitimate use of physical force within a given territory”.

The typically Germanic purpose Weber attributed to this “community,” however, was “the use of physical force as a means of domination”–the opposite of what libertarians want. To be legitimate, our use of force ought to be retaliatory–the response to aggression, to menacing–rather than initiated. The idea is to defend the rights of individuals, their moral claims to freedom of action, and nothing else. Weber also took pains to remind his students: “Note that ‘territory’ is one of the characteristics of the state.” Looters are apt to grasp this precisely because they are the ones bent on domination by force. Weber also makes clear that “expropriation” is part and parcel of the domination by force he described in 1919.

The Libertarian Party was founded by admirers of Ayn Rand’s ideas, in particular, her ethical approach to the use of force within the context of limited constitutional democracy. In April of 1942 she wrote the non-aggression principle, which in 1971 was distilled into a pledge required for membership in the Libertarian Party. Every libertarian partisan has signed this Non-Aggression Pledge:

I certify that I oppose the initiation of force to achieve political or social goals.

The objective definition of government, including its territoriality feature, survived, but the purpose Weber wrote down–which Hitler exploited to form the NSDAP a year later–is today discarded. After all, most German voters were convinced National Socialism was successful after 18 years, but that theory did not survive past 25 years of age.

America’s lasting success comes from the word “free.” In the First and Second Amendments, free means free from aggressive coercion in a literal sense. This also symbolizes right (as opposed to wrong) in an ethical sense. In These States, an individual life worth living is the objective standard of value. Hence, the forcible defense (enforcement) of individual rights–thwarting their forcible violation–is the sole purpose of legitimate government. The LP’s growing success stems from this demonstrably desirable standard of ethical value.

You cannot divide by zero instead of using the definition of a limit to find a derivative for the slope of a curve. On these sigmoid curves the derivative exists and changes sign at the halfway mark. Nor can you reduce to zero the territorial jurisdiction or definition of government and still enforce the rights of individuals.

Ayn Rand said to ask yourself what competition in the forcible restraint of men has to mean. The answer, the monstrous answer which all communist infiltrators pretending to advocate for freedom struggle to evade, is war. War and death are what every anarchist seeks. So why else, other than hostile mimesis, would they infiltrate the LP?

If sabotage weren’t the motive, anarchists could be expected to organize the Anarchist Party of America, offer to legalize murder, robbery extortion, rape, slavery and disfigurement. Members could be encouraged to burn their voter registration cards. The party could field candidates who declare themselves opposed to the Constitution of the United States and eager to overthrow it by force rather than uphold it per an oath of office. I seriously wish more anarchists would clearly state their purpose. Their comrades could no longer infiltrate gullible parties, point to their own 5th-column provocateurs embedded within the the LP, and hiss “anarchists!”

When not infiltrating the LP, looter intellectuals wriggle to infiltrate pacifist movements. These are populated by folks who promise not to forcibly resist “domination”, nor to capture, try and punish those who aggress against them. In theory this leads to Aldous Huxley’s Island of Pala being invaded and dominated. In practice you observe it in the streets of India, Pakistan and Portland.

Our spoiler vote method of bringing pressure to bear paid off when the LP platform stopped Dixiecrats from restoring laws banning all birth control. Still, the momentum behind the population curve, though decelerating since that time, was huge. Hence the delay in reversing population growth, even though the second derivative of the population curve has been negative since the late sixties.

Since 1972, socialism–especially in its communo-fascist variants–is reversing in these States because of Libertarian candidates supporting our platform and offering to support (but repair) the Constitution. Spoiler votes entrusted to these candidates cause entrenched “vocational” politicians of the kleptocracy to repeal brutal laws and lower parasitic taxes–that or be unseated by other looters quicker on the uptake. Our candidates don’t even need to be elected in order to change the laws. The Nixon law bribing the media to ignore us has slowed the process, but the replacement is going on with mathematical inexorability as the libertarian vote share increases.

Before Women Got the Vote

A republican infiltrator at the Reasonoids meetup in Austin could only talk about who the LP should listen to and support. The bait? More people would like us (as opposed to vote for our platform and candidates).

There is nothing new about this particular dodge. The purpose, as always, is to get us to dilute our message by wasting votes on candidates fielded by looter parties.

This is the same as it was over a century ago. Men still thought in terms of personalities rather than principles, issues or freedom. Every election was a flinging match over what adjectives to apply to wannabee politicians. Fools get caught up in the excitement rather than leverage a vote so as to shape the votes and mindfully direct the policies and actions of those selfsame politicians. They don’t have to like us or agree with us. They need only fear that our spoiler votes will cause them to lose to some other, less objectionable looter candidate.

This is how the communists and prohibitionists used their tiny percentage of the vote share to rewrite the constitution, saddle us with an income tax and make beer a felony.

Divide and Conquer

Totalitarians and Libertarians understand that freedom is indivisible. Those that value it seek to preserve it intact, and those that despise it try to extirpate it root and branch. Yet there are many who struggle to evade this realization. A single example will suffice.

16 Then came there two women, Equality and Faith, that were voters, unto the Chancellor, and stood before him, one on his Left and the other on his Right

17 And the leftmost woman, Equality said, O my lord, I and this woman Faith dwell in one house; and I was delivered of a child, named Sharing, with her in the house.

18 And it came to pass the third day after that I was delivered, that this woman was delivered also: and we were together; there was no stranger with us in the house, save we two in the house.

19 And this woman’s child, named Righteousness, died in the night; because she overlaid it.

20 And she arose at midnight, and took my Sharing from beside me, while thine handmaid slept, and laid it in her bosom, and laid her dead child, Righteousness, in my bosom.

21 And when I rose in the morning to give my Sharing suck, behold, it was dead: but when I had considered it in the morning, behold, it was not my Sharing, which I did bear.

22 And the other woman said, Nay; but the living is my Righteousness, and the dead is thy Sharing. And this said, No; but the dead is thy Righteousness, and the living is my Sharing. Thus they spake before the Chancellor.

23 Then said the Chancellor, The one saith, This is my son that liveth, and thy son is the dead: and the other saith, Nay; but thy son is the dead, and my son is the living.

24 And the Chancellor said, Bring me a sword. And they brought a sword before the Chancellor.

25 And the Chancellor said, we must compromise. Divide the living child in two, and give half to the one, and half to the other.

26 Then spake both women and said, Let this be settled by unselfish compromise, the common good before the individual good, and divide it, for half of Sharing or Righteousness is better than none at all. Any other view is unequal and extreme

27 Then the Chancellor answered: divide the child in half.

28 But another woman, Liberty, protested this was monstrous, saying Equality had no more just power to deprive Faith of her precious child than Faith had to deprive Equality of hers. Then all three turned to Liberty. The Chancellor told her she was not invited to the debate–and the child was cut in half.

29 And all Germany heard of the judgment which the Chancellor had judged; and they feared the Chancellor: for they saw that the wisdom of God was in him, to do judgment with integrity, as in the Twenty-Five Points, and that he would relentlessly seek the implementation of these points, if necessary at the cost of their lives.

Totalitarians (no rights or freedom) & Libertarians (yes rights & freedom) are consistent

Mixed economy advocates (yellow) believe freedom is divisible

I hope you understood this parable on how the mixed-economy, Left&Right socialists sacrifice all principles and integrity to take from others what they value, and the Libertarian Upper quadrant and Totalitarian Lower quadrant remain true to their values and principles. Remember that clarity next time you need a translator. Oh, and be SURE you remember what the Left-Right Socialist parties say about each other when you see LIB on the ballot.

cause and effect

Republicans Fear LP Spoiler votes

Lose the looter planks or lose the election

Law-changing spoiler votes

Nixon’s Republican Party changed the tax code to pay the media to ignore the Libertarian Party in 1971, the year we were founded. Yet with its first published platform the LP parlayed fewer than 4000 votes into a win for women in the US and Canada.

The LP platform language:

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

was translated by Austin attorney Libby Linebarger into the 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. …”

The next election, 1972, both the Republican Party and its spoiler vote controllers demanded a Constitutional Amendment to overturn that Libertarian Party platform plank copied by the Supreme Court. The Prohibitionists have finally given up and are pushing the Global Warming Apocalypso. But Republican partisans are still in a rut as of their 2016 platform:

We support a human life amendment to the Constitution and legislation to make clear that the Fourteenth Amendment’s protections apply to children before birth.

The 14th Amendment, by the way, starts by protecting “All persons born”, not all ova fertilized.

God’s Own Prohibitionists have since 2013 had mystical shills penning tear-jerker insinuations at Forbes. After carpetbiting for an Amendment to undo the Libertarian Party’s 1972 plank for 46 years, Republicans now understand that the collectivism of race suicide paranoia is the anvil that is drowning their party. Global Warmunism is the even bigger anvil drowning the Democratic and Econazi parties. Good riddance!

Yet in our battleground states, where Libertarian vote counts are larger than the difference between the Nationalsocialist warriors-for-the-babies and the Soviet socialist energy slave abolitionists, we handed the election to the least coercive candidate, and the looter parties lost those about evenly. Our pro-choice candidate may win the NM senate race, and not just in the usual sense of WINNING by forcing the looters to repeal bad laws (or getting the Supreme Court to strike them down).
