The Alexander Hamilton card

Islam is dry

Pauline Sabine

Alexander Hamilton crafted arguments in favor of adopting the Constitution of the United States to replace the Articles of Confederation. The Federalist was a pamphlet series in which those appeals were circulated.

Of special importance is Federalist #78, concerned with the design of the Judicial Branch. In it he argues that the judicial branch offers safeguards against “occasional ill humors” liable to cause the “injury of the private rights of particular classes of citizens, by unjust and partial laws.” Moving on to the heart of the matter, Hamilton urged:

Here also the firmness of the judicial magistracy is of vast importance in mitigating the severity and confining the operation of such laws. It not only serves to moderate the immediate mischiefs of those which may have been passed, but it operates as a check upon the legislative body in passing them; who, perceiving that obstacles to the success of iniquitous intention are to be expected from the scruples of the courts, are in a manner compelled, by the very motives of the injustice they meditate, to qualify their attempts. This is a circumstance calculated to have more influence upon the character of our governments, than but few may be aware of.

Herbert Hoover’s aid and comfort shielded Germany from repayment of war reparations and other debts owed to the countries it had shelled and invaded–and to fools who offered them loans. Hoover’s Moratorium on Brains was a crime against the U.S. Constitution. Under the US 14th Amendment–the one that protects women’s right to choose–those debts would “not be questioned.” But the Prohibition Amendment had altered the Constitution into an instrument for the initiation of force. The Prohibition Party had changed America the way the National Socialist party was affecting Germany, likewise a 98% Catholic and Protestant nation. This was accomplished with 1.4% of the vote in 11 political campaigns.

The Supreme Court had given legitimacy to the nation’s domination by mystical fanatics whose laws made light beer a federal felony.  Its imprimatur was stamped on the Minnesota Congressman Andrew Volstead’s enforcement act. The Court had explained, in it’s decision that Dred Scott, a brown person, was not entitled to the rights of citizenship, and that the Fugitive Slave Act demanded his deportation into slavery under “the present Constitution of the United States.” That 1857 Constitution gave way to one abolishing slavery while smuggling deficit spending into the 14th Amendment–Red Republicans saw to that!

But Hamilton never counted on “domination by religious fanatics” in the place of “ocasional ill humors.”  It took the Liberal Party platform, the American Association Against the Prohibition Amendment and Pauline Sabin, leader of  the Women’s Organization for National Prohibition Reform to wrest power from the hands of the Prohibition Party-Klan-Republican Axis of Evil and repeal Prohibition.   That voter resolve came from the realization that Prohibition collapsed the economy, just as it did again in 1987 and again in 2007!

A vote for the Libertarian Party is worth 6 to 6000 votes wasted on the looter Kleptocracy. Same goes for your dollar donations. Green card holders are allowed to donate money to the Libertarian Party as well.

Seymour the Superstitious

Tatsuya Ishida’s Sinfest.net

When I was a child, women dressed like penguins told us children gory stories about the Path of Righteousness. This one is relevant to today’s hot topic.

4 And there went out a champion out of the camp of the Philistines, named Goliath, of Gath, whose height was six cubits and a span.

8 And he stood and cried unto the armies of Israel, and said unto them, Why are ye come out to set your battle in array? Am not I a Philistine, and ye servants to Saul? Choose you a man for you, and let him come down to me.

9 If he be able to fight with me, and to kill me, then will we be your servants: but if I prevail against him, and kill him, then shall ye be our servants, and serve us.

10 And the Philistine said, I defy the armies of Israel this day; give me a man, that we may fight together.

11 When Saul and all Israel heard those words of the Philistine, they were dismayed, and greatly afraid.

12 Now David was the son of that Ephrathite of Bethlehemjudah, whose name was Jesse; and he had eight sons: and the man went among men for an old man in the days of Saul.

48 And it came to pass, when the Philistine arose, and came, and drew nigh to meet David, that David hastened, and ran toward the army to meet the Philistine.

49 And David put his hand in his bag, and took thence a stone, and slang it, and smote the Philistine in his eye, that the stone sunk into his eye; and he fell upon his face to the earth.

50 So David prevailed over the Philistine with a sling and with a stone, and smote the Philistine, and slew him; but there was no sword in the hand of David.

51 Therefore David ran, and stood upon the Philistine, and took his sword, and drew it out of the sheath thereof, and slew him, and cut off his head therewith. And when the Philistines saw their champion was dead, they fled.

59 But David was called before the Court, to answer the Philistines complaint he had vanquished by foul means. That one, said counsel for the Plaintiffs, not only drew first blood, but used an illegal basalt eyeful to slay our champion.

60 To this David replied that the challenge was Goliath’s, and that once it is decided that someone is to be killed, the moral question has been settled. The instruments of that killing are not affected by any moral or humane questions or considerations.

61 The Court ruled in favor of Respondent, and David bid goodbye to the uncircumcised Philistines and returned to bed with the King’s daughter. Together they watched a movie on the Burning Bush, titled “Swindler’s List” in which only the Pharaoh and his enforcers had basalt eyefuls.

Moral: better to have a basalt eyeful and not need it, than to need one and not have it.

Getting their Attention with Spoiler Votes!

Dad used to tell a story about this farmer whose mule wouldn’t obey.

They’d be plowing along and the farmer would holler “HAW!” The fool mule would turn right, or not turn at all, or stop! The furrows were all crooked. Finally the farmer found a “mule trainer” with a telephone number on the bulletin board at the general store. The farmer called the trainer who agreed to come out and serve up one free lesson as a special introductory offer.

Soon the trainer pulls up in his pickup and asks, “Izzat the mule?”
The farmer sez “Yep,” and before he could tell the trainer the mule’s name, the man pulls a two-by-four out of the truck bed, walks over to the mule, winds up and whacks him upside the head with the piece of lumber. The mule’s head swung round like a tetherball, smacked against the critter’s rump and barely bounced back in time to not get fallen on as the beast crumpled to the ground, blood coming out of one ear.

“Stop it!” hollered the farmer. “Heck, if I wanted him dead I’d a kilt him myself.”
“Calm down,” said the mule trainer. “This is what I do for a living. To teach a mule anything at all, first you gotta get his attention!” **

Sensei of solid smack upside the haid!

Meet my little friend, spoiler vote Dokuro-chan!

Political parties are like mules in this regard. They write platforms, usually to rob and cheat voters, then hire candidates to pretend the platforms (you’ll never read) are their own idea and that they can change them at will. They can’t–at least not until after they LOSE an election running on that platform.  For instance, George Waffen Bush’s first Executive Order called for packing the Executive Branch with faith-based prohibitionist bigots. Sure enough, those worthies colluded with dishonest State officials to waylay and rob motorists and confiscate homes, farms, bank accounts, securities portfolios and cash because “Reefer Madness” and “looters-by-law,” just like Herbert Hoover did from 1929 to March of 1933 (when FDR was sworn in, declared light beer not a felony and became President for life). Parties in States whose economies collapsed under that altruistic asset-forfeiture experiment wrote new platforms, and marijuana and forfeiture laws have been repealed like prohibitions on beer from 1923 to 1933.

One LP electoral vote made Roe v Wade decision!

Wet Dems elected 1932, 1936, 1940, 1944, 1948

No Republicans were ever elected again until Dick Nixon (a Quaker like Herb Hoover) slid in on Ike’s coattails in 1952 and lost to JFK in 1960. Nixon barely squeaked in by 0,7% of the popular vote because George “Klan” Wallace and Curtis “Nukem” LeMay parlayed their 14% 0f the popular vote into 46 electoral votes. To Nixon Republicans, those Dixiecrat spoiler votes were a heavy bludgeon upside the haid, and overnight they again became God’s Own Prohibitionists eager to kill commies on the other side of the planet and put hippies and naygurs in jail. When stingy old Ross Perot got enough votes to make George death-to-potheads Bush lose, Slick Willy Clinton instantly became a fiscal conservative, but prohibition still prohibited plants.

Equal but opposite reaction force...

Religious fanatics retaliate Bush meddling!

Then when Al Warming-oil Gore lost Tennessee and blamed Green party spoiler votes, the entire Democratic party became a wholly-owned-subsidiary of the Church of the Green Goddess Gaia. Data-altering scientist-impersonators rectified past temperatures cooler and faked post-freon-ban temperatures hotter than what thermometers said. But political laws still sent police to waylay, rob and kill motorists and confiscate homes, farms, bank accounts, securities portfolios and cash because “Reefer Madness” and “looters-by-law“… oh, and bomb the Saracen blackamoors on the other side of the planet.

Spoiler votes carry a big stick... bigger!

Fisher-Pry analysis anyone?

Before you vote or contribute, think of how badly you could hurt God’s Own Prohibitionists (Gee-Oh-Pee) AND the Damned Econazi Myrmidons (DEMS) by supporting Libertarian change. Your vote/donation packs the law-changing wallop of at least 6, probably 21, and possibly as many as 500 votes/donations wasted on tax-subsidized, entrenched kleptocracy parties.

Pre-Libertarian Cycles

Cycle theories proliferate in Europe, where Liberal means laissez-faire to the educated. This particular one looks at oscillations in a system made unstable by altruism. The English it is written in is a second language (a concept that is hard to explain to Americans outside of Puerto Rico).

Still, the thoughts aren’t broken at all and the text is proof that political economy is alive and well in parts of Europe once enslaved by soviet socialist liberation. At a glance the graph shows “market share” of two broadly-described, evolving ideologies, the better of which is on the upswing at this Libertarian Moment, according to the author.

A Fisher-Pry graph would be useful

Simple linear trendline for libertarian vote percentages

This whole concept of market penetration and replacement of things like techie gimrackery (cellphones v. landlines, for instance) has been a subject of applied mathematics since the 1970s.  Today we have a definition of government perfected in 1908, and a proper purpose of government spelt out with the Non-Aggression Principle since 1947. Furthermore, the tacit assumption that there is something “good” about altruism has crumbled to powder at the feather-touch of a single question: Why?

Until that question was asked, force-initiating altruism waxed until the infected area became a totalitarian Altruria which promptly collapsed. The ruins were then gradually replaced by voluntarist individualism (however imperfect) in the cycle depicted. For the first time in history a non-aggressive party built on a consistent foundation may keep the blue line at its maximum value and the red line at its minimum henceforth. The Libertarian Party can accomplish this through the pressure of spoiler votes–the mechanism that spread totalitarianism before ethicists seriously analyzed the normative worth of 19th-Century assumptions. It’s certainly worth a try.

Lessons of Political Economy

You can’t can peas without a can. But when the price of steel is high, you can set up a simple math problem to minimize the amount of steel per volume of peas. Anyone interested in freedom can also minimize the addition of coercion into the laws made in defense of individual rights.

Read the original article…

When I first encountered the LP in 1980, it took awhile for their main preoccupation to sink in. To libertarians, they explained, the initiation of force is like the price of steel. You set up equations and logical solutions that minimize the initiation of force, just as canners know how to minimize the surface area of a can of peas. As the initiation of force approaches zero, freedom (by definition) is increased and, consequently, wealth and life-worth-living multiply apace.

Now that the LP wields as many votes as the State of Virginia, looter parties are confronted with pawn power on the chessboard in the form of LP spoiler votes. Each entrenched looter party now has to repeal aggressive laws or lose because of libertarian spoiler votes. If either entrenched party fails in this task, more libertarian spoiler votes are cast. In the looter frame of reference, every such vote greatly increases the risk that the other looter party will win and snatch away “their” boodle and commandeer “their” armed goons. That’s third-party reality, and ignoring it won’t make it go away.

Both kleptocracy parties go to great lengths to trick voters into giving them the sanction of the victim. They make up fake names, for instance. Mystical bigots who in 1918 were monarchists, prohibitionists, and theocrats now call themselves  “conservatives.” Factory-confiscating communists who in 1918 called themselves “socialists” today prefer the cognomen of “liberals.” Liberal is what parsimonious low-tariff mercantilists answered to back when communists called them “plutocrats,” “capitalists” or “The Accumulation.” That gradually changed, primarily through the efforts of the Fabian Society and Norman Thomas:

“The American people will never knowingly adopt socialism. But, under the name of “liberalism,” they will adopt every fragment of the socialist program, until one day America will be a socialist nation, without knowing how it happened. I no longer need to run as a Presidential Candidate for the Socialist Party. The Democratic Party has adopted our platform.” ― Norman Mattoon Thomas

Socialists and theocrats, who after 1939 claimed that Adolf Hitler “wasn’t really” a socialist OR christian and that catholic and lutheran clergy “never really” helped the National Socialist Third Reich, loudly claim Thomas “never said” such a thing. Fine. The statement is no less true (if one expects truth from looters) and there is an undisputed equivalent by a contemporaneous intellectual of the looter persuasion:

The American People will take Socialism, but they won’t take the label. I certainly proved it in the case of EPIC.* Running on the Socialist ticket I got 60,000 votes, and running on the slogan to ‘End Poverty in California’ I got 879,000. I think we simply have to recognize the fact that our enemies have succeeded in spreading the Big Lie. There is no use attacking it by a front attack, it is much better to out-flank them. –Upton Sinclair, circa 1934

After Soviet Russia self-identified as a non-religious state, as the United States had in the Treaty of Tripoli, a schism developed between christian nationalsocialists and lay socialists. The Hoover Administration would not recognize the Soviet government. Because this Treaty of Tripoli is disputed and denied by christian national socialists, I include here Article XI  from my original 1910 version of Treaties, Conventions, International Acts, Protocols and Agreements Vol II p 1786:

ARTICLE XI: As the Government of the United States of America is not in any sense founded on the Christian Religion; as it has in itself no character of enmity towards the laws, religion or tranquility of Musselmen; and as the said States have never entered into any war or any act of hostility against any Mehomitan nation, it is declared by the parties, that no pretext arising from religious opinions shall ever produce an interruption of the harmony existing between the two countries.

The contest between Liberals, Socialists and Organized Mysticism has–with little change of meaning–morphed into a three-way contest between Libertarians, religious national socialists, and lay international socialists. Libertarian spoiler votes are reversing those rights-destroying trends of the 1890s to 1990s the same way, and Populist spoiler votes in 1892 set them in motion in the first place and George Wallace spoiler votes in 1968 accelerated the process.

Simply put, the philosophical teachings of Ayn Rand–put in writing in 1947 as National Socialists were put to death for altruist genocide at Nuremberg–have replaced altruist conditioning that favored the initiation of force. Consequently, the Libertarian Party, founded on sympathetic principles, has replaced all looter parties as the prive mover for change. The leveraged clout of libertarian spoiler votes is changing laws even more efficiently than the communist-socialist-populist spoiler votes of a century ago. Libertarian success is not a mater of putting “our” politicians on government payrolls. It is the result of giving voters a way to express their preference for freedom in terms no political party dares to ignore. –Hank Phillips

*EPIC: Eliminate Poverty in California, a precursor to LBJ’s War On Poverty and other things.

Severability and Spoiler Votes

http://www.blogdodemian.com.br/

Spoiler votes change the laws–escape!

The entrenched kleptocracy keeps government jobs and parasitical subsidies by duping registered voters into fearing “the” other bucket of crabs. Each bucket is a package-deal of unrelated lobbyist agendas. Many contracts are also package-deals thrown together by disparate stakeholders. Out of fear that the courts will strike down one of the more egregious clauses, a severability clause is usually stirred into the crab-boil.

A severability clause states that if parts of the contract are held to be illegal or otherwise unenforceable, the remainder of the contract should still apply. The Constitution works that way without the need for a severance clause. The 13th Amendment ended chattel slavery and voided the fugitive slave (=”property”) clause from Article IV, yet the Constitution survived and the Supreme Court even ruled that conscription wasn’t really involuntary servitude.

The Constitution is amended (for better or for worse) by small party spoiler votes. Religious fanatics casting 1.4% of the vote created the 18th amendment making beer a felony. Communist fanatics shifted the paradigm and added Communist Manifesto plank 2 as the 16th Amendment. No severability clause was needed. The severability that matters–that changes laws–is when you sever relations with both halves of the entrenched looter kleptocracy. They then have to change their platforms to try and lure back those spoiler votes.  Why? So their snouts–not the other gang’s–can be in the trough.

Crabs–scavengers for carrion–cannot escape a bucket because their fellow partisans in that bucket energetically pull down any who try to escape over the wall. In the Republican bucket, if a wealthy woman executive wants to reverse an unplanned pregnancy, that’s too bad. Mystical bigots will pull her down. If a producer does not want his son or daughter shot, robbed, raped and jailed over a plant leaf, group peer pressure grabs his ankles lest he escape the collective bucket.

Anyone in the Democrat bucket who is tired of being looted and robbed is likewise dragged down by United Front activists and scolded for attempted desertion under fire. After all, women would have “no rights” and there would be “no roads” if not for the Communist Manifesto plank 2, right? You’ve got to believe that faked temperature data is real or the Republicans will shoot, rob, rape and jail your sons and daughters over a plant leaf to please their prohibitionist hangers-on. But will they change or simply lie? Fools will believe anything, and their conformist votes identify them as dupes. With that in mind, ask yourself if you really expect the truth from anyone committed to taking from others by force?

But what happens when voters can polevault into a completely different bucket, or escape to freedom? What paradigm shift results when your vote can tell politicians you say NO to robbing, murdering, bombing, or defrauding anyone? What happens when you finally realize that cowardice, dishonesty, lack of integrity is what dooms the crabs in those buckets to the boiling pot? In the past, what always happened was that the laws changed, and the Constitution changed. In the present, that change can be for the better. Do YOURSELF a favor. Increase your law-changing clout by voting Libertarian.

The 3 percent Energy Vote Solution

Freedom cancels climate fraud

Energy plank vote totals, 2016

It behooves politicians to look backward at the votes cast in the 2016 elections in the USA. Stripped of personalities and cancelling out the nonsense, the two parties with platforms advocating uncoerced access to energy pulled even with the four parties of Altrurian Cassandras in the much-ballyhooed popular vote, viz:

Libertarian and Republican presidential candidates: 49.4%
Green, Socialist, communist and Democrat candidates: 49.4%

The 2% 
Dem/GOP  partisan difference is more than covered by the 3.28% won by Libertarian party presidential candidates. The LP platform did not advocate a carbon tax or suicidal treaties with foreign interests. Libertarian voting stock is up over 300%. Bear in mind that a difference of only 77 electoral votes decided which party politicians took office for the Executive branch on Inauguration Day in January 2017.

Libertarian votes spanned the spoiler vote gap in States casting 89 electoral votes, 15% more than the total number of electoral votes separating the party that got the pelf and political pull from the one that chose to hobble electrical energy production instead of repealing prohibition.

Per-capita access to energy is a factor in population control. No access to energy means a Malthusian catastrophe. That is what is at stake here. Claims that CO2 (like water vapor, just another trace gas) has increased the planet’s temperature are contradicted by ordinary thermometer data. As in so many previous cases, the apocalyptic shrieking is a symptom of folks being hoodwinked by junk science. Republican insistence on Byzantine sumptuary laws, a National Socialist approach to immigration and Mohammedan-style Sharia laws interfering with the individual rights of pregnant women are what made this a dangerously close election. Your libertarian vote is a vote against all the bad planks in the Republican and Democratic platform. Whichever big party ignores our platform loses, but because we repeal bad laws, we always win.

If your business requires energy in order for you to accomplish work, bear that in mind when you need to select a translator.
