Richard Nixon’s Congress modified the tax code to force every American to subsidize Republican and Democratic candidates–precisely when the Libertarian Party was formally organized. This was a brilliant strategy.
These IRS transfer payments have since 1971 transferred money from producers to media presstitutes. In exchange, those worthies constantly din into voters heads’ that a libertarian vote is a wasted vote. To persons of a couple of standard deviations lower than normal intelligence, this sounds like a valid argument. The premise, of course, is that every election is about the success of individual candidates. The lie they seek to convey is that voting is NOT about the success and freedom of the individuals casting the votes.
Prohibitionist domination of the Republican party made it as inevitable in 2007, as in 1929, that fanatical coercion of the banking and brokerage system would bring economic collapse. Tammany-style Democrats seen their chance and took it. The doctors who lied about beer, wine, coca leaves, peyote, mescaline, Indian hemp and LSD so that Republican and Dixiecrat politicians could legislate and loot at will were by 2007 a cartel snorting other people’s assets through hundred-dollar bills.
Outside, in the hospital waiting room, the sick and injured die filling out forms and signing over title to property. A license to practice medicine is like a prohibition agent’s license to padlock and confiscate under asset forfeiture. Rather than kill the golden goose by legalization, Democrats offered Socialized Medicine as the panacea for all ills.
Every American is now harried by telemarketing algos and forced at gunpoint to confess on their tax forms–(5th Amendment be damned!)–whether they paid tribute to Obamacare. The only way out of the mandatory funneling of cash to medical mafiosi is to leave the United States. Social Security checks go father in Mexico, Caribbean islands, South America and Canada–especially if you can get a resident visa.
The upside is a Pain Drain–of aging superstitious, brainwashable ex-pats no longer able vote in many US elections. Going, going, gone is their power to make birth control and plant leaves illegal, or to force the unsaved to urinate into sample cups so medical mafiosi can tear up their work permits.
The alternative? Rosa Maria Ortega was sentenced to 8 years in prison (and deportation), and Cristal Mason (guess what color), was sentenced to 5 years in prison. Their victimless crime was the same as that of a dozen others in North Carolina: “voting illegally.” For ex-pats to legally vote nationally, forms must be completed and ballots cast a month before the real election.
Ex-pats often cannot vote in the local elections that decide whether Stateside real estate will be exorbitantly taxed, then taken. Geezer Old Party voters must eventually choose between affordable medical care abroad and voting to bully pregnant women and shoot or jail blacks and hippies Stateside. Democrats, meanwhile, are busy trying to shut down electric power plants.
If you do not want to shoot kids over plant leaves, bully pregnant women, cause economic collapse or make electrical energy a controlled substance, you might want to vote Libertarian.
