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under that altruistic asset-forfeiture experiment wrote new platforms, and marijuana and forfeiture laws have been repealed like prohibitions on beer from 1923 to 1933.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.

Asset Forfeiture Panic of 1873

Here is the text of the Comstock law.
March 3, 1873, 42nd Congress, page 1873, amending the already harsh and lengthy postal monopoly law of June 1872, which allowed Comstock himself to meddle in the mail service….

CHAP. CCLVIII—An Act for the Suppression of Trade in and Circulation of, obscene Literature and Articles of Immoral use. Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled, That whoever within the District of Columbia or any of the Territories of the United States, or other place within the exclusive jurisdiction of the United States, shall sell, or lend, or give away, or in any manner to exhibit, or shall offer to sell or to lend, or to in any manner exhibit or shall in any way publish or offer to publish in any manner, or shall have in his possession, for any such purpose or purposes, any obscene book, pamphlet, paper, writing, advertisement, circular, print, picture, drawing or other representation, figure or image on or of paper or other material, or any cast, instrument, or other article of an immoral nature, or any drug or medicine, or any article whatever for the prevention of conception, or for causing unlawful abortion, or shall advertize the same for sale, or shall write or print, or cause to be written or printed, any card, circular, book, pamphlet, advertisement, or notice of any kind, stating when, where, how, or of whom, or by what means, any of the articles in this section hereinbefore mentioned, can be purchased or obtained, or shall manufacture, draw, or print, or in any wise make any of such articles, shall be deemed guilty of a misdemeanor, and, on conviction thereof in any court of the United States, or in any Territory or place within the exclusive jurisdiction within the United States, where such misdemeanor shall have been committed; and on conviction thereof, he shall be imprisoned at hard labor in the penitentiary for not less than six months nor more than five years for each offense, or fined not less than $100 nor more than $2000, with costs of court.

Mystical prohibitionism with guns

Previous Draconian law meddling in international communications

SEC 2. That section one hundred and forty eight of the act to revise, consolidate, and amend the statutes relating to the Post-office Department, approved June eighth, eighteen hundred and seventy-two, be amended to read as follows:
“Sec. 148. That no obscene, lewd, or lascivious book, pamphlet, picture, paper, print, or other publication of an indecent character, or any article or thing designed or intended for the prevention of conception or procuring abortion, or any article or thing intended or adapted for any indecent or immoral use or nature, or any written or printed card, circular, book, pamphlet, advertisement or notice of any kind giving information, directly or indirectly, where, how, of whom, or by what means either of the things before mentioned may be obtained or made, nor any letter upon the envelope of which, or postal-card upon which indecent or scurrilous epithets may be written or printed, shall be carried in the mail, and any person who shall knowingly deposit, or cause to be deposited, for mailing or delivery, any of the hereinbefore-mentioned articles or things, or any notice or paper containing any advertisement relating to the aforesaid articles or things, or any notice, or paper containing any advertisement relating to the aforesaid articles or things, and any person who, in pursuance of any plan or scheme for disposing of any of the hereinbefore-mentioned articles or things shall take, or cause to be taken, from the mail or any such letter or package, shall be deemed guilty of a misdemeanor, and on conviction thereof, shall, for every offense, be fined not less than one hundred dollars nor more than five thousand dollars or imprisoned at hard labor not less than one year nor more than ten years, or both, in the discretion of the judge.”

[$5000 would in 1873 buy 221 oz of gold, today worth over $295,000]

SEC. 3. That all persons are prohibited from importing into the United States from any foreign country any of the hereinbefore-mentioned articles or things, except the drugs hereinbefore-mentioned when imported in bulk, and not put up for any of the purposes before mentioned; and all such prohibited articles in the course of importation shall be detained by the officer of customs, and proceedings taken against the same under section five of this act.

[asset forfeiture provision]

SEC. 4. That whoever, being an officer, agent, or employee of the government of the United States shall knowingly aid or abet any person engaged in the violation of this act, shall be deemed guilty of a misdemeanor and, on conviction thereof, shall for every offense be punished as provided in section two of this act.

SEC 5. That any judge of any district or circuit court of the United States within the proper district, before whom complaint in writing of any violation of this act shall be made, to the satisfaction of such judge, and founded on knowledge or belief, and, if upon belief, setting forth the grounds of such belief, and supported by oath or affirmation by the complainant, may issue, conformably to the Constitution, a warrant, directing him to search for, seize and take possession of any such article or thing hereinbefore mentioned, and to make due and immediate return thereof, to the end that same may be condemned and destroyed by proceedings, which shall be conducted in the same manner as other proceedings in case of
municipal seizure, and with the same right of appeal or writ of error: Provided, That nothing in this section shall be construed as repealing the one hundred and forty-eighth section of the act of which this act is amendatory, or to affect any indictments heretofore found for offenses against the same, but the said indictments may be prosecuted to judgment as if this section had not been enacted. APPROVED March 3, 1873.

Observe that here was a law inviting faith-based zealots to forcibly meddle in and make seizures against trade, production, healthcare, speech, writing, advertisement, seeing, reading, and even mailing a letter or postcard! Sure enough, BLAM! By the sheerest of coincidence (to GOP and Democratic Party eyes), the destruction of freedom engineered by the 1872 Postal Monopoly law morphing into the Comstock laws at federal and state levels immediately preceded the Panic of 1873 and a ghastly depression! The Kleptocracy spares no effort in coming up with alternative causation scenarios.

This sort of error was repeated in 1907 and  1927, was loudly publicized in 1929 and silently enforced in 1932, 1987 and 2007. Flash crash repetitions occurred in May of 2010 and March of 2015. Yet economist-impersonators lecturing at subsidized schools direct attention away from these sorts of correlations and the inductive temptation they entail. Some stock market investor or corner-seeking clique is instead singled out for blame, as in Farenheit 451.

The idea of fanatical Altrurian looters or faith-based zealots turning the police into a lynch mob capable of collapsing the economy is not allowed inside of government schools. Since learning from experience is discouraged by collectivist trompe d’oeil in History, to preclude repetition of such crashes and depressions, an Atlas Shrugged Amendment would serve just as nicely. The free trade amendment would make a nice cornerstone to the Libertarian Party Platform:

Congress shall make no law abridging the freedom of production and trade.

The LP already appropriated the Non-Aggression principle as set forth by Ayn Rand in 1947–while minions of Hitler’s Socialist Altruria were stretching ropes at Nuremberg. That principle has served us well. The Republican Party has for decades copied the 1976 Prohibition Party platform plank urging a Constitutional Amendment, Why? To overturn the Roe v. Wade decision copied from the 1972 Libertarian platform. Republicans appropriated the Prohibition Party plank demanding physicians be constitutionally coerced in order that women shall not possess individual rights.

VAT: Vermin-Added Tax

Nixon Adds Vermin

Read the original

Europe’s Ecological National Socialist political parties gorge on what they call a Value-Added Tax. But does coercive parasitism really add value? The diversion of currency to unproductive hands was identified as the cause the ruin of nations observed and documented in 1775. Was Adam Smith wrong about this most subtly camouflaged of visible hands?

A lump of uranium is transformed by application of science and engineering into electricity plus isotopes useful to physicians. The work done by human intelligence added value to the original raw material. The “Business Activities Tax,” popular in today’s Bandana Republics and Junta dictatorships, was repealed in the United States back in the sixties. But European collectivists happily imported the VAT as another “sin tax.” Like every other Comstock penalty or sin tax, VAT is a means of adding the sustenance of increased numbers of unproductive vermin to the burdens borne by any who commit the sins of voluntary production and trade.

But value is something Americans want voluntarily–not something that has to be forced at gunpoint. To Europeans, “former” Soviet citizens, and South Americans forced to vote by compulsion, values apparently mean something politicians want from you, voluntarily or otherwise. Richard Nixon is the prominent American who comes to mind when I think of a Vermin-Added Tax.  By voting for the Libertarian platform and its candidates, I send a clear signal to ALL politicians that my vote will never support a Vermin-Adding Tax. Eliminating subsidies to looter parties by removing Nixon’s anti-libertarian Subtitle H – Financing of Presidential Election Campaigns from the IRS code could increase revenue more than anything I can think of.

Pre-Soviet Democrat

Before looters again took over the Dems

So why is Google appointing itself the assessor-collector to “eat out our substanceperpetrated, again, by foreign autocrats? How is vermin-added taxation different from a sin tax? I would gladly buy added Google Drive storage–just without burdening any foreign population with added vermin…

Integrity is their Enemy… 2

Part 2 of the 2016 LP Battleground state spoiler vote lever analysis

Spoiler vote levers: our 2016 vote % times that State’s electoral votes–a measure of clout

The Libertarian Party formed as Richard Milhous Nixon–a Quaker zealot like Herbert Clark Hoover–sought to strengthen the Comstock Law, all other prohibition laws, and use military conscripts to bring nationalsocialist eugenics to bear upon non-christian non-whites in the former French opium regie of Vietnam. These policies drove the dollar off the gold standard and prompted David Nolan to enunciate principles consonant with objective values, and with individual rights as the moral claims to freedom of action:

  • the right to life—accordingly we support the prohibition of the initiation of physical force against others;
  • the right to liberty of speech and action—accordingly we oppose all attempts by government to abridge the freedom of speech and press, as well as government censorship in any form; and
  • the right to property—accordingly we oppose all government interference with private property, such as confiscation, nationalization, and eminent domain, and support the prohibition of robbery, trespass, fraud, and misrepresentation.

The only answers to that are more deception, fraud and force by the entrenched Kleptocracy. Nixon’s cohort, within 24 hours of the Libertarian Party’s formation, made the Anti-libertarian law. This forcibly added government loot to the “contributions” of predatory corporations to bend “major parties” to legislate their will.  Communist and socialist parties were demoralized and strove all the harder to infiltrate the Democratic party. Faith-addled Comstock-law prohibitionists, nos disguising deadly coercion behind a “pro-life” mask, sought more control over the Republican party.  Both parties now invest stolen treasure and effort toward the perversion of voters’ principles. These labors generate fallacious slogans:

  • Perfection is the enemy of _______ (deception and treachery)
  • A vote for _______ (LP candidate) is a vote for _______ (other entrenched party candidate)
  • But Libertarians are in favor of _______ (something awful NOT in the libertarian platform)
  • The Libertarian candidate cannot possibly “win” (Win=be hired by government to help us betray and plunder voters).
  • Winning is getting our tool onto the government payroll to leech off of you. (Real winning is reducing the number of such leeches picking our pockets at gunpoint–this is what LP spoiler votes accomplish)
The Emperor is not a politician!

Scott Adams on non-politicians

But the practical and mathematical effect is that voters may now unequivocally identify freedom from coercion as the value they seek, and politicians cannot ignore that signal. Libertarian spoiler votes carry information content similar to that transmitted by prices. They take votes from both entrenched looter parties in proportion to the naked coercion those parties advocate, no matter how confusingly they confound the issues. This is easy to check using free spreadsheets.

The Libertarian party’s 4 million votes broke down into more votes than the difference between the hired and fired looter party in 13 states casting 127 electoral votes. For context, the anti-energy Dems lost the 2016 election by 74 electoral votes. Seven of those Libertarian battleground states were won by Republicans (for 13% of disputed electoral votes) and six by Democrats (with 11% of those electoral votes). Overall the Democrats, seeking coercion to make electricity and firearms more expensive lost on balance 2%, or eleven more electoral votes to LP candidates than did the GOP, which seeks to crowd prisons and make birth control, bail bonds, First Responders™ and drugs more expensive and dangerous.

Thirteen states are are now benefiting as Libertarian Battleground States for which both kleptocracy parties will pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any abettor, and oppose any competitor to assure the survival and the success of their half of the looter kleptocracy, its remoras and hangers-on. The reader no doubt recalls that These States started out as thirteen colonies abused by a smugly coercive mercantilist Metropolis. Please bear that in mind–and listen to what both entrenched party candidates say about each other–as you decide what (not who) to vote for next election.

Trump’s Libertarian Party Card

On September 9, 2015, Donald Trump gave Reason TV his opinion of libertarianism:

Donald Trump: “I like it. A lot of good things. I don’t want to talk to you now, but a lot of good things, a lot of good points.”

On July 19, 2016, Donald Trump won an entrenched party nomination as its candidate for president. Time elapsed: 10 months and ten days after he said nice things about the LP.org.

On November 8, 2016 Donald Trump was elected President.
Time elapsed after Trump’s original pro-libertarian comment: 14 months.

George Waffen Bush’s first Executive Order establishing a faith-based Fifth Column within the federal government led to a predictable asset-forfeiture Crash and Great Depression. Folks recalled the time when the Great Depression was brought on by Herbert Hoover’s prohibition enforcement policies, and the Republican Party had a problem.  Running an overdone faith-based invader of the opium regie in Vietnam failed miserably in the 2008 economic collapse. Nobody mistook McCain’s anti-choice running mate for Tonie Nathan. Nominating the leader of a prohibitionist, anti-choice mystical cult in the 2012 Great Depression also failed.

At a time when voters correctly surmised that government action by entrenched politicians had again wrecked the economy, Trump sewed up the Gee Oh Pee nomination ten months ahead of time with those 8 words: “I like it. A lot of good things.” The Libertarian Card was Trump’s implicit threat of running for office on the Libertarian Party ticket. When Trump spoke those words, God’s Own Prohibitionists suddenly remembered how Ross Perot’s spoiler votes had cost their party boodle, pelf, handouts, grants, paychecks, subsidies and jobs in the middle of a prohibitionist asset-forfeiture depression. Trump had foreshadowed the strategy WAY in advance… 16 years before closing in for the kill.

The same thing happened to President Taft, when Teddy Roosevelt swung the election to Woodrow Wilson. Nixon won in 1968 despite George Wallace taking the ku-klux vote. But Nixon’s Moral Majority Republicans adopted Dixiecrat bigotry so fast you’d think George Wallace had won every electoral vote and become Grand Goblin himself. Nixon also got the tax code changed to inject subsidies into entrenched looter party campaigns–this within 24 hours of the Libertarian Party forming.

FDR’s victory came entirely thanks to the Liberal Party of America. In a Gentlemen’s Agreement, that party faded into the background once the Democratic platform followed their example by adopting a prohibition repeal plank. Herbert Hoover’s tax-law prohibitionism had so thoroughly wrecked the economy that voters stayed away from Republican prohibitionists for five consecutive elections.

The Libertarian Party’s four million spoiler votes cast a long shadow over the three million or so popular votes that Hillary wishes had made her the “real” winner. The Democratic party wishes it had copied the Libertarian planks on relegalization and energy instead of listening to econazis and pushing for National Socialist gun laws. Threatening to make electricity illegal and pass socialist gun laws was the height of disqualifying stupidity.

Looter Vote Counts

Here are reported 2016 election returns for Boulder County, Colorado, from the Longmont Times-Call. The last column was simply left blank on the assumption that most voters do not know how to add or subtract.

Voters who rely on looter press vote counts are simply kept unaware of the existence of libertarian spoiler votes. How then are they to figure out that those spoiler votes pack at least six times the law-changing clout of a vote wasted on the looter kleptocracy that newspaper serves?

Countywide Clinton Trump Libertarian?
Longmont 55.3% 33.1% 11.6%
Boulder 80.8% 10.9% 8.3%
Erie 56.8% 32% 11.2%
Lafayette 68.6% 21.2% 10.2%
Louisville 78.1% 20.7% 1.2%

It is possible that Green econazis or ku-klux Tea-partiers may have gotten some of those unreported votes. But the Libertarian Party is on the ballot in all 50 states. And it is definitely true that looter parties–the ones that rob you at gunpoint–are perfectly willing to lie, cheat and steal the vote count. The Longmont Times-Call newspaper, through its staff Writer Karen Antonacci, clearly lied about the election outcome.  Looter kleptocracy parties do it to each other all the time.

Al Franken lost the Minnesota Senate race by a couple of hundred votes, then won on recount by over twice that many. The initial and final count of those decisive votes differed by 245%. What better proof that looters lie, cheat and steal to get access to the initiation of force? I personally want verifiable voting. Mark Twain voted by bawling out his choice in the public square, but I would settle for a QR code (like a secret but verifiable ATM receipt) to let me check online how MY vote was tallied. Until then, we are groping in the dark–as Lysander Spooner described during Reconstruction–under a secret band of robbers and murderers.

Looter parties set up fake Mexican standoffs so that even honest and well-informed voters are gulled away from supporting freedom. Just now Boulder politicians offered an either-or “choice.” The fake choice was not between freedom and coercion, but between a monopoly on a natural gas power plant and another monopoly on worthless, self-destructing windmills. Boulder is home to chinook winds nearly as powerful as the hurricane that just destroyed the windmills and solar panels Puerto Rican taxpayers were duped into installing.

Fourteen candidates were presented, and any libertarians among them were barred by law from identifying themselves on the ballot as against the initiation of force. Their vote counts would doubtless be misreported. Single digits you say?

We got same kind of digits in 2016 as the 9% spoiler vote commie populists in 1892 used as a springboard for getting Congress to enact a federal income tax by 1894. A single digit is the same as the Prohibition Party 1.4% vote average for the 11 campaigns leading up to the 16th Amendment. For 14 years beer, wine and sauerkraut were felony narcotics, with gunfights everywhere until the economy completely collapsed in February 1933.

Our 0.01% of the electoral vote in 1972 was arguably less than a single digit, but in 45 days it pressured the Republican Suprema Corte into enforcing the individual rights of women and their physicians in Roe v. Wade. We got no electoral vote in 2016, but libertarian votes spanned the gap between the looter parties in 11 states casting 90 electoral votes. Casting spoiler votes that increase freedom is winning. Letting the looter kleptocracy destroy our freedom is losing. This is binary, either-or, simple, true and inescapable.

The Libertarian parties in Texas need candidates to help improve the laws there. Canada’s Libertarian Party now has a woman president and is accepting donations from Canadian residents. Is you want to understand something written in Spanish by libertarians, or have a libertarian message to divulge in Portuguese, get in touch.

 

Beginners Takeover Amendment–ATA bylaws–FAILED!

“One of the many fine things that one has to admit is the way that the Army has carried the American democratic ideal to its logical conclusion–in the sense that not only do they prohibit discrimination on the grounds of race, creed and color, but also on the grounds of ability.”Tom Lehrer

The board of the American Translators Association, since 1991 entirely dominated by the American Society of Association Executives–ASAE, wanted ATA members to give beginners and infiltrators voting control over the association. Why?

In 1981 a bloodless coup placed translators (as opposed to beginners and labor outsourcing agencies) in charge of the American Translators Association. To register to vote you had to demonstrate some translation ability by passing a test. Choose 3 out of 5 short passages, translate them without too many errors, and you became accredited (certified), and could vote. This model was championed by Ben Teague and Patricia Newman in the December 1981 ATA Chronicle, and opposed by many managers of large translation agencies. These powerful interests later put the ASAE, its managers and attorneys in charge of all ATA activities, with an ASAE executive present at every board meeting. Translators serve on the board without pay, but ASAE executives are paid handsomely to rewrite our bylaws and “run” our organization.

Exceptions were made whereby translators of rare languages (especially if also representatives of large agencies) produced less objective evidence of ability and thereby gained the franchise. These “active-but-uncertified” members were the entering wedge of an agenda separate from the art and science of translation. Ask yourself: how many of them took and passed certification tests once those became available in their claimed languages?

The results? Thanks to lobbyists, South Texas Federal District Courts pay a premium to untested members of a foreign association. ATA-member interpreters certified for translation in both directions of their language pair are discriminated against by U.S. federal courts. Yet colleges, cities and states are increasingly requiring translations by ATA-certified translators, not “voting” members who have never passed a test.

Why propose these amendments? Because earlier amendments kidnapping our certification credentials for Continuing Extortion have alienated members able to pass a simple test. Certification has become an onerous liability and real translators a target of discrimination.  Replacing those certified members with fake translators and voting middlemen only compounds the damage caused by previous anti-translator amendments designed to penalize the competent.

Examine the resolution issued by the United Nations on 24 May 2017. It praises “competitive examinations,” then Affirms that “professional translation, as a trade and an art, plays an important role in upholding the purposes and principles of the Charter of the United Nations, bringing nations together, facilitating dialogue, understanding and cooperation, contributing to development and strengthening world peace and security;” …

Now look at the resolution proposed in tandem with these ATA bylaws amendments. The ATA board resolution is whining over political election outcomes and boils down to:  “…we, (Paleface), strongly oppose … all forms of expression of … religious intolerance, and strongly favor welcoming qualified immigrants who, … seek refuge here from war or persecution.” Ask yourself:  Is this another bid to import additional ideologues who engage in wars of religious intolerance and persecution in their own countries and elsewhere? Surely America already has enough of those!

An alternative resolution supporting diversity instead of violence reads:

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

I have proudly signed this non-aggression certification, and I vote against all parties that attack/invade other countries.  Pro-freedom translators are invited to become certified against coercion and the violence it engenders.  The ASAE’s attempted anti-translator and pro-impostor bylaws amendments are unprofessional. The violent ideologue importation resolution advocates coercive censorship. Censorship is part of the very initiation of persecution and force that leads to war. Surely the reader will recall that honest communication is the first casualty of war.

Linguist-entrepreneurs may join the Libertarian Translators communications list. Ask me how. There is also a Freelancers Union for all professions operating out of New York.
