Republican Candidate Herbert Hoover

Republican party campaign movie to Elect Herbert Hoover in 1928 (Source: Herbert Hoover Library)

Most striking are the omissions. Four years earlier the Dems were split asunder over Ku-Klux Klan bigotry. Like the Libertarian party Convention of 2022, which deleted platform condemnations of bigotry, the Dems failed to deplore the Klan. Offended by the attempt, the bone-dry prohibitionist Ku-Klux Klan promptly threw its support behind the Republican Party. The GOP in turn adopted the Klan’s endorsement of the prohibition Amendment and added a plank promising to enforce dry laws–which since 1927 had added the Bureau of Internal Revenue to their arsenal.(link)

The movie does not mention the Opium Wars or boycott pressure exerted on the USA to support prohibitionism. The Hague Convention of 1909, organized and pushed by Americans, called for prohibition legislation in many countries. Its impending ratification was the impetus behind the Balkan Wars that escalated into WW1. No, the war was not caused by a lone anarco-collectivist assassin. Belgium, the first battlefield, was covered in opium poppies and still is.(link) In fact, every country south of Switzerland and Austria and East of Italy–The Balkan States–produced opium for refining in Switzerland, Austria and Germany. France farmed Cochin-China (Vietnam) and England harvested India and Burma for raw materials. The U.S. imported opium from Persia. Today, the entire Mediterranean coast from Spain, down the west coast of Italy to Sicily, Greece and Cyprus are home to endemic wild opium poppies.(link) When China cut off imports in 1911, economic instability led to war which quickly raised opium prices. Developed countries with chemical industries used the drug as a self-collecting tax on colonies and primitive populations. Another detail: The movie is full of Christian and Mohammedan clergy, but acknowledges no Jews.

Herbert Hoover witnessed opium prohibition problems in China during the Opium War westerners have relabeled the Boxer Rebellion, mayhaps to liken it to a cowboys ‘n indians movie or Charleton Heston documendacity. Belgian mining and railroad corporations were everywhere in China, as were smugglers and public beheadings of addicts. Hoover was so prohibitionist he made his interpreter gulp down both their drinks while the host was not looking. So Herbert Hoover’s Republican party, now fortified with extra Klan, was dedicated to enforcing Constitutional Prohibition, whatever the cost. But sending men with guns to make trade and production illegal, like lynch mobs, were not the sort of thing polite society mentioned outside of newspaper articles and cartel-forming Convention meetings behind closed doors with inaccessible debates and records–at least as far as war-igniting drug prohibition is concerned.(link)

The Tenth Assembly of the League of Nations sat in Geneva September 2 through 25, 1929. Its Fifth Committee discussed international prohibition of non-habit-forming stimulants and addictive narcotics, records of which are diligently hidden from public inspection. In fact, only the Government of New Zealand makes ANY worthwhile documentation on the subject viewable at all.(link) There at least one becomes aware of the existence of Document A. 86 1929, with the caveat–repeated to this day–that violent prohibition agents with guns blazing are only sent charging out “for the protection of women and children.” What is certain is that United States stock market quotations reached a maximum on between the end of August and 02SEP1929, the day the Tenth Assembly began its prohibitionist dog-and-pony shows in Geneva. To Republicans this is, pick one:
(A) pure coincidence, or
(B) normal business cycles

Libertarian Dollars Matter

Libertarian donation votes-per-dollar comparison, 2022 (link)

Libertarian donors in Georgia harvested over ten votes per dollar donated to Libertarian candidate Chase Oliver. That’s the tall blue bar in the graph. The Almighty Dollar invested in a Libertarian candidate gave a return in votes two hundred times larger (yep, 200x) than for a similar dollar wasted on one of God’s Own Prohibitionist candidates. Our votes return was almost 700 times as large as the vote gain wrought by tossing a dollar at the Democratic Party, which since Sherman’s March across Georgia has increasingly learned the value of protecting individual rights of women.(link)

Georgia is the State that gave its 12 electoral votes to George Wallace in 1968.(link) Thanks to the Libertarian Party, the parties of Wallace, Nixon and Agnew just saw two black candidates roundly beaten in the votes-per-dollar category by an armed and gay libertarian.(link) Looking at the graph you’d have to agree with George Wallace that–in terms of votes per dollar–“there’s not a dime’s worth of difference between the Democrat and Republican parties.” And on the graph you can hardly tell them apart. So how do the numbers stack up?

There’s the table. One thin dime buys a Libertarian donor a vote. Girl-bullying prohibitionists had to shell out $20 for every vote endorsing increased coercion and stock market crashes. Dems had to shell out roughly $64 per vote for higher taxes and restoring the individual rights women once gained via the Libertarian Party platform in 1973.

We’ve already seen how leveraged Libertarian spoiler votes help voters get rid of the most obnoxious and detestable looter candidates–and toss their abhorrent platform planks out after them.(link) We’ll be looking at more examples of how sending money to pro-choice Libertarian party candidates can more than offset Republican infiltrator attempts to make the LP into a smaller, harder, angrier version of National Socialist Republicanism.(link) Stay tuned, but remember, this is about the economics of winning back rights.(link)

By the way, independent latino voters mostly voted Libertarian in the Georgia election.
