By libertarians I mean card-carrying, NAP-signing, dues-paying citizens who actually vote libertarian and donate to help candidates earn law-changing spoiler votes. People like Nick Sarwark, Gary Johnson and Kathie Glass of Austin and the late John Hospers, our first candidate and later an organizer of the Libertarian Defense Caucus. The LDC was opposed to surrendering to the USSR while some LP infiltrators were pushing that very idea. Here are the hockey-stick results in terms of law-changing votes.
What we have today, thanks to the laws and policies already changed by the LP, is a non-communist Russia surrounded by former victims of totalitarianism. Russia’s communist party vote is falling about as fast as the number of U.S. voters eager to send men with guns to force women into unwanted labor. Not only are the grotesque disadvantages of coercion becoming harder and harder to ignore, but willingness to vote libertarian is increasing so fast that the Kleptocracy and its mouthpieces are hard-pressed to distort, bury and omit the rising LP vote count.
The same tactics are in place to crush freedom in the Ukraine. But guess what? Individualist stalwarts are forming a Ukraine Libertarian Party. Here are the top two bullets on their to-do list:
- Individual liberty is above the common good
- Interests of the citizens are above interests of the state
If these priorities seem contrary to German National Socialism’s Christian altruist motto:
- The Common Good before the Individual Good: Gemeinnutz vor Eigennutz
You got that right! They have trite and wordy “ethics” laundry list in place of the Non-Aggression Principle young Ayn Rand penned while Allies lustily tried and hanged Nazi war criminals. This Non-Aggression Principle keeps the LP focused on the end game, and disarms entrenched kleptocrats who since 1972 have striven for ways to betray and brand us as terrorists, anarchists, disloyal, etc…
Reading through the Ukraine proto-LP English web page is heartwarming. They even know the correct meaning of the word “liberal,” retasked by frustrated republicans in 1932 to mean bootlegging communist race-suicide Carnegie Institute traitor. Democrats have proudly worn the label with that meaning. Foreigners are puzzled and simultaneous interpreters irritated at having to decide on a dime whether the pre-or post-1932 version of “liberal” is being misrepresented.
Our friends in the Ukraine are setting a proud example.
