Original Libertarian Party Platform

Including the plank to repeal laws banning abortion

STATEMENT OF PRINCIPLES

Adopted unanimously by the delegates to the first national convention of the Libertarian Party, on June 17, 1972.

We, the members of the Libertarian Party, challenge the cult of the omnipotent state, and defend the rights of the individual.

We hold that each individual has the right to exercise sole dominion over his own life, and has the right to live his life in whatever manner he chooses, so long as he does not forcibly interfere with the equal right of others to live their lives in whatever manner they choose.

Governments throughout history have regularly operated on the opposite principle, that the State has the right to dispose of the lives of individuals and the fruits of their labor. Even within the United States, all political parties other than our own grant to government the right to regulate the life of the individual and seize the fruits of his labor without his consent.

We, on the contrary, deny the right of any government to do these things, and hold that the sole function of government is the protection of the rights of each individual: namely (1) the right to life — and accordingly we support laws prohibiting the initiation of physical force against others; (2) the right to liberty of speech and action — and accordingly we oppose all attempts by government to abridge the freedom of speech and press, as well as government censorship in any form; and (3) the right to property — and accordingly we oppose all government interference with private property, such as confiscation, nationalization, and eminent domain, and support laws which prohibit robbery, trespass, fraud and misrepresentation.

Since government has only one legitimate function, the protection of individual rights, we oppose all interference by government in the areas of voluntary and contractual relations among individuals. Men should not be forced to sacrifice their lives and property for the benefit of others. They should be left free by government to deal with one another as free traders on a free market; and the resultant economic system, the only one compatible with the protection of man’s rights, is laissez-faire capitalism.

INDIVIDUAL RIGHTS AND CIVIL ORDER

The protection of individual rights is the only proper purpose of government. No conflict exists between civil order and individual rights. Both concepts are based on the same fundamental principle: that no individual, group, or government may initiate force against any other individual, group, or government. Government is instituted to protect individual rights. Government is constitutionally limited so as to prevent the infringement of individual rights by the government itself.

Crime

We hold that no action which does not infringe the rights of others can properly be termed a crime. We favor the repeal of all laws creating “crimes without victims” now incorporated in Federal, state and local laws — such as laws on voluntary sexual relations, drug use, gambling, and attempted suicide. We support impartial and consistent enforcement of laws designed to protect individual rights — regardless of the motivation for which these laws may be violated.

Due Process for Criminally Accused

Until such time as a person is proved guilty of a crime, that person should be accorded all possible respect for his individual rights. We are thus opposed to reduction of present safeguards for the rights of the criminally accused. Specifically, we are opposed to preventive detention, so-called “no-knock laws” and all other similar measures which threaten existing rights. We further pledge to do all possible to give life to the Sixth Amendment’s guarantee of a speedy trial, and shall work for appropriate legislation to this end. We support full restitution for all loss suffered by persons arrested, indicted, imprisoned, tried, or otherwise injured in the course of criminal proceedings against them which do not result in their conviction. We look ultimately to the voluntary funding of this restitution.

Freedom of Speech and The Press

We pledge to oppose all forms of censorship, whatever the medium involved. Recent events have demonstrated that the already precarious First Amendment rights of the broadcasting industry are becoming still more precarious. Regulation of broadcasting can no longer be tolerated. We shall support legislation to repeal the Federal Communications Act, and to provide for private ownership of broadcasting rights, thus giving broadcasting First Amendment parity with other communications media. We support repeal of pornography laws.

Protection of Privacy

Electronic and other covert government surveillance of citizens should be restricted to activity which can be shown beforehand, under high, clearly defined standards of probable cause, to be criminal and to present immediate and grave danger to other citizens. The National Census and other government compilations of data on citizens should be conducted on a strictly voluntary basis.

The Right to Keep and Bear Arms

In recognition of the fact that the individual is his own last source of self-defense, the authors of the Constitution guaranteed, in the Second Amendment, the right of the people to keep and bear arms. This reasoning remains valid today. We pledge to uphold that guarantee. We oppose compulsory arms registration.

Volunteer Army

We oppose the draft (Selective Service), believing that the use of force to require individuals to serve in the armed forces or anywhere else is a violation of their rights, and that a well-paid volunteer army is a more effective means of national defense than the involuntary servitude exemplified by the draft. We recommend a complete review and possible reform of the Uniform Code of Military Justice, to guarantee effective and equal protection of rights under the law to all members of the U.S. armed forces, and to promote thereby the morale, dignity, and sense of justice within the military which are indispensable to its efficient and effective operation. We further pledge to work for a declaration of unconditional amnesty for all who have been convicted of, or who now stand accused of, draft evasion and for all military deserters who were draftees.

Property Rights

We hold that property rights are individual rights and, as such, are entitled to the same respect and protection as all other individual rights. We further hold that the owner of property has the full right to control, use, dispose of, or in any manner enjoy his property without interference, until and unless the exercise of his control infringes the valid rights of others. We shall thus oppose restrictions upon the use of property which do not have as their sole end the protection of valid rights.

Unions and Collective Bargaining

We support the right of free men to voluntarily associate in, or to establish, labor unions. We support the concept that an employer may recognize a union as the collective bargaining agent of some or all of his employees. We oppose governmental interference in bargaining, such as compulsory arbitration or the obligation to bargain. We demand that the National Labor Relations Act be repealed. We recognize voluntary contracts between employers and labor unions as being legally and morally binding on the parties to such contracts.

TRADE AND THE ECONOMY

Because each person has the right to offer his goods and services to others on the free market, and because government interference can only harm such free activity, we oppose all intervention by government into the area of economics. The only proper role of government in the economic realm is to protect property rights, adjudicate disputes and protect contracts, and provide a legal framework in which voluntary trade is protected. All efforts by government to redistribute wealth, or to control or manage trade, are improper in a free society.

Money

We favor the establishment of a sound money system. We thus support the private ownership of gold, and demand repeal of all legal tender laws.

The Economy

Government intervention in the economy imperils both the material prosperity and personal freedom of every American. We therefore support the following specific immediate reforms:

(a) reduction of both taxes and government spending;

(b) an end to deficit budgets;

(c) a halt to inflationary monetary policies, and elimination, with all deliberate speed, of the Federal Reserve System;

(d) the removal of all governmental impediments to free trade — including the repeal of the National Labor Relations Act, the Interstate Commerce Act, all antitrust laws, and the abolition of the Department of Agriculture, as the most pressing and critical impediments;

(e) and the repeal of all controls on wages, prices, rents, profits, production, and interest rates.

Subsidies

In order to achieve a free economy in which government victimizes no one for the benefit of anyone else, we oppose all government subsidies to business, labor, education, agriculture, science, the arts, or any other special interests. Those who have entered into these activities with promises of government subsidy will be forewarned by being given a cutoff date beyond which all government aid to their enterprise will be terminated. Relief or exemption from involuntary taxation shall not be considered a subsidy.

Tariffs and Quotas

Like subsidies, tariffs and quotas serve only to give special treatment to favored interests and to diminish the welfare of other citizens. We therefore support abolition of all tariffs and quotas as well as the Tariff Commission and the Customs Court.

Interim Reforms

In order to effect our long-range goals, we recommend, among others, the following interim measures: the adoption of the Liberty Amendment, and provision for greater use of the referendum for reducing or repealing taxes.

Long-Range Goals

Since we believe that every man is entitled to keep the fruits of his labor, we are opposed to all government activity which consists of the forcible collection money or goods from citizens in violation of their individual rights. Specifically, we support the eventual repeal of all taxation. We support a system of voluntary fees for services rendered as a method for financing government in a free society.

DOMESTIC ILLS

Government intervention in current problems, such as crime, pollution, defraud of consumers, health problems, overpopulation, decaying cities, and poverty, is properly limited to protection of individual rights. In those areas where individual rights or voluntary relations are not involved, we support an immediate reduction of government’s present role, and ultimately, a total withdrawal of government intervention, together with the establishment of a legal framework in which private, voluntary solutions to these problems can be developed and implemented.

Pollution

We support the development of an objective system defining individual property rights to air and water. We hold that ambiguities in the area of these rights (e.g. concepts such as “public property”) are a primary cause of our deteriorating environment. Whereas we maintain that no one has the right to violate the legitimate property rights of others by pollution, we shall strenuously oppose all attempts to transform the defense of such rights into any restriction of the efforts of individuals to advance technology, to expand production, or to use their property peacefully.

Consumer Protection

We shall support strong and effective laws against fraud and misrepresentation. We shall oppose, however, that present and prospective so-called “consumer-protection” legislation which infringes upon voluntary trade.

Overpopulation

We support an end to all subsidies for childbearing built into our present laws, including all welfare plans and the provision of tax-supported services for children. We further support the repeal of all laws restricting voluntary birth control or voluntary termination of pregnancies during their first hundred days. We shall oppose all coercive measures to control population growth.

Education

We support the repeal of all compulsory education laws, and an end to government operation, regulation, and subsidy of schools. We call for an immediate end of compulsory busing.

Poverty and Unemployment

We support repeal of all laws which impede the ability of any person to find employment — including, but not limited to, minimum wage laws, so-called “protective” labor legislation for women and children, governmental restrictions on the establishment of private day-care centers, the National Labor Relations Act, and licensing requirements. We oppose all government welfare and relief projects and “aid to the poor” programs, inasmuch as they are not within the proper role of government, and do contribute to unemployment. All aid to the poor should come from private sources.

FOREIGN POLICY

The principles which guide a legitimate government in its relationships with other governments are the same as those which guide relationships among individuals and relationships between individuals and governments. It must protect itself and its citizens against the initiation of force from other nations. While we recognize the existence of totalitarian governments, we do not recognize them as legitimate governments. We will grant them no moral sanction. We will not deal with them as if they were proper governments. To do so is to ignore the rights of their victims and rob those victims of the knowledge that we know they have been wronged.

ECONOMIC

Foreign Aid

We support an end to the Federal foreign aid program.

Ownership in Unclaimed Property

We pledge to oppose recognition of claims by fiat, by nations or international bodies, of presently unclaimed property, such as the ocean floor and planetary bodies. We urge the development of objective standards for recognizing claims of ownership in such property.

Currency Exchange Rates

We pledge to oppose all governmental attempts to peg or regulate currency exchange rates. International trade can truly be free only when currency exchange rates reflect the free-market value of respective currencies.

MILITARY

Military Alliances

The United States should abandon its attempts to act as policeman for the world, and should enter into alliances only with countries whose continued free existence is vital to the protection of the freedom of all American citizens. Under such an alliance, the United States may offer the protection of its nuclear umbrella, but our allies would provide their own conventional defense capabilities. We should in particular disengage from any present alliances which include despotic governments.

Military Capability

We shall support the maintenance of a sufficient military establishment to defend the United States against aggression. We should have a sufficient nuclear capacity to convince any potential aggressor that it cannot hope to survive a first strike against the United States. But, as our foreign commitments are reduced, and as our allies assume their share of the burden of providing a conventional war capability, we should be able to reduce the size of our conventional defense, and thus reduce the overall cost and size of our total defense establishment.

DIPLOMATIC

Diplomatic Recognition

The United States should establish a scheme of recognition consistent with the principles of a free society, the primary principle being that, while individuals everywhere in the world have unalienable rights, governments which enslave individuals have no legitimacy whatsoever.

Secession

We shall support recognition of the right to secede. Political units or areas which do secede should be recognized by the United States as independent political entities where: (1) secession is supported by a majority within the political unit, (2) the majority does not attempt suppression of the dissenting minority, and (3) the government of the new entity is at least as compatible with human freedom as that from which it seceded.

The United Nations

We support withdrawal of the United States from the United Nations. We further support a Constitutional Amendment designed to prohibit the United States from entering into any treaty under which it relinquishes any portion of its sovereignty.

Ominous GOP Parallels

Bar chart of membership from Communist party website w/ sevenfold increase

Republican policies after passage of the Prohibition Amendment arguably increased Communist Party membership among Americans. CP membership roughly tripled in 1920-25, when the first prohibition recession hit, then increased sevenfold after The Great Depression resulted from prohibitionist property confiscation. The acceleration was well under weigh before FDR won using the Liberal Party repeal plank.(link)

Nixon was elected before Roe v Wade, when world population was half what it is now

You can see from this and other prison crowding graphs that Nixon’s mania for Republican prohibitionism increased prison populations sevenfold, from 200,000 to 1,600,000. Most of the increase were young, black and latino users of harmless enjoyables such as cannabis, mescaline, LSD, mushrooms and plant leaf extracts. None of them sought to harm anyone (absence of mens rea) and all of them sought only their own happiness. The equivocation of “vices” into “crimes” is fallacious. Prohibitionism spits in the face of free-market liberalism and laissez-faire economic theory. It replaces voluntary trade with the promiscuous abuse of violent and deadly force against those who neither defraud nor coerce others.(link)

China tried this sort of violence when Britain used opium exports to finance its conquest and subjugation of India. The resulting wars, revolutions and violence had by the time of our Civil War killed off a Chinese population roughly equal to everyone living in the U.S.. The Hague antiopium Convention interfered with exploitation by Britain, France, Belgium, The Netherlands, Austria and Germany of the Balkans as source and their African and Asian colonies as dumping grounds for refined opiates. WW1 resulted. The Armistices, Versailles Treaty and later Opium Conventions combined with alcohol prohibitionism to add the USA to the export markets for addictive narcotics.

Herbert Hoover’s Moratorium (on brains and on German heroin) wrecked the German economy and got pharma cartels to back Hitler’s belligerent Socialism so that WW2 followed as logically from “A Planned Economy on a World Scale” as WW1 did from seizure of Germany’s “chemical drugs” as reparations while strangling their legality.(link) Germany and Japan, smelling a communist plot, withdrew from the League of Nations, used submarines to run drugs past prohibitionist and tariff blockades and made enough money doing it to wreck much of the planet’s wealth and progress fighting for those markets. Prohibitionist China is a dictatorship nobody wants to live in.

The most wasteful thing anyone can do is waste a vote on either half of the prohibitionist Kleptocracy.(link) Whenever they lose, they look at the millions of votes cast for Libertarian platform policies. Those expensive regrets are the only way for Republicans to break free of book-burning bigots and Democrats to let go of totalitarian looter-state policies as a utopian vision.

Libertarian vote history

Here is a record of how many law-changing spoiler votes the Libertarian Party earned in presidential campaign years and how the rate of change varied with platform changes. For the political background, see Canadian Liberals and American Libertarians.(Link)

Column 4, slope, is what The Kleptocracy watches with apprehension.

Our first two platforms netted us 176,321 votes so the rate of increase slope was 46, an angle of 88 degrees over those 4 years. To you a change from 0% to 0.2% of the vote may look like small potatoes. But to entrenched Kleptocracy party strategy planners, that graphs as a line that is only 2 degrees from straight up, displaying in stark relief increasing voting in opposition to entrenched policies of coercive prohibitionism, entanglement in colonial wars, tax gouging and the relentless increase in transfer payments from producers to non-producers. To them this was a direct threat to the power that, let’s face it, is the Political State’s capacity to coerce numerous people to death per unit of time.(Link)

The LP platform was changed in 1980. Individual rights (including women) were replaced by collectivized “women’s rights.” Mystical conservatives, with whoops of joy, promptly depicted half of all voters as a “subsidized” minority, thanks to mixed-economy medical cartel legislation subsidizing testicular cancer treatment as healthcare, but pregnancy termination as handouts. Attempts to pass an Equal (not individual) Rights Amendment failed, as have all 12 Republican abortion prohibition Amendment attempts so far. Much more shocking was the anarchist contention that child molesting ought to be legal, and the suicidal addition of THAT idiocy to the Libertarian platform. The 1984 platform was worse, insisting that child molesting be enshrined as a right! (Link) Libertarian votes changed from increasing to decreasing at a 45º angle downward and we lost ballot access in 12 states. This was a huge win for the looter Kleptocracy.

Anarchists fought tooth and nail to keep child molesting planks in the platform as republican infiltrators struggled to convert all women into the role of reproductive chattel enforceable against slave women before the 13th and 14th Amendments. Meanwhile the Reagan-Biden-Bush Dreikaiserbund exported prohibition laws wrecking Latin American economies and inducing hordes of refugees to flee to America. Anarchists seen their chance to put borderless communist anarchism into the platform and republicans loudly and joyfully pointed this out to voters while jacking up drug laws as a pretext for property confiscation.(Link) “Good-faith” republican Sharia law was smuggled into the LP platform to legitimize singling out pregnant women and robbing them of the taxes they’d paid into unenumerated government healthcare rackets. Asset-forfeiture confiscation of homes made mortgage-backed derivatives worthless and the Bush republicans wrecked the entire economy in 2008.

Army of God terrorism seeks to infiltrate the LP

Anarchist communist infiltration added to the 2020 platform language insisting on the uninspected importation of actual terrorists in addition to streaming hordes of unskilled, illiterate economic refugees fleeing Reagan-Biden-Bush-Bush-sponsored caudillo dictatorships.(Link) The most recent addition to the libertarian platform is reminiscent of girl-bullying Army of God vigilantes who undertook to murder physicians after God suggested they administer the death sentence. (Link) As soon as we restore the original plank defending individual women from threats of coercion and armed violence, we will have earned that 12% per year increase in vote share both communo-fascist wings of the Kleptocracy seek to deny us as women voters finally return to the Libertarian Party.

Book Censors

Big Bill Thompson championed book banning in 1927

Beer was a deadly narcotic Congress wanted banned, and the Sedition and Espionage acts had set a further example urging coercion and violence in defense of belligerent hubris. So Republican Mayor Thompson was not all that different from other politicians of his time–or ours.(link)

Drink was once the “assassin of youth”; nowadays vice is still equivocated with crime by burners of books and Beatles albums.(link)

Nowadays republicans have managed to alienate the women’s vote the way they did in 1929. Before Prohibition, women weren’t allowed in saloons except through the “ladies’ entrance.” But illegal speakeasies were under no such regulation, and men had a hard time finding a place at the bar when Pauline Sabine was rallying for Repeal of the 18th Amendment.(link) Texas has enacted a Fugitive Slave Act enlisting bounty hunters in efforts to coerce women into involuntary labor of reproduction. This raises the hope voters may again retaliate as they did from 1932 to 1952, and open a vacancy for the libertarian party to replace God’s Own Prohibitionists the way that leaking hulk once replaced the Whigs.

Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, Linseed Graham Cracker, DeSantis and Klan Mom Marjorie Greene Teeth represent most of what has been wrong with one geriatric half of the Kleptocracy for the past century. But Bernie and Drug Czarist Biden are no less appalling in their doddering saturation with pseudoscience. America, the bastion of reason before prohibitionism, has become a clown act even compared to Europe and Asia, which have hardly changed at all, yet gain by comparison lately. (link)

Good reading: In Rabi, Scientist & Citizen, John Rigden accidentally relates how even the most brilliant European scientists failed to escape Old World ruts. Despite Nobel-prize achievements in physics and weapons design, Rabi–like Panovsky, Szilard and too many others–still placed hope in new versions of the Molotov-Ribbentrop agreement that knifed Poland in twain for Hitler and Stalin, then segued seamlessly into a World War. Only our Second Amendment, baffling as it is to Old World thinkers, has saved us from such endless loops.(link)

Texas Libertarian-impersonators

Adding anarchism and girl-bullying

What now cross-dresses as a libertarian party in Texas is hosting a… a what? They can’t call it a debate, because that would be competitive and anti-social. America’s leading scientist-impersonator, Michael Mann, refuses to debate his soothsaying of Misanthropic Global Warmunism on grounds a debate would challenge his Papal Infallibility. The Mystical Conservative Supreme Court refused to intercede in Mann’s suit against National Review, which, following the mystical Republican tactic of puritanical screeching, described him as “the Jerry Sandusky of climate science, except that instead of molesting children, he has molested and tortured data.” Here is an example of what, to Mann, is an honest chart of untampered-with thermometer readings:

Past data as rectified by the Ministry of Truth (link)

The participants in this non-debate are a communist anarchist and a mystical Republican Party politician who believes men with guns must force women to carry pregnancies through involuntary labor and that Global Warmunism is not a religion, Petition Project scientists to the contrary notwithstanding.(Joe) (Scientists)

This particular communist anarchist [there is no other kind] (link), is the same “Spike” who respectfully spat on the damaged Libertarian platform of 2020 and got the 5th Column anarchist VP nomination to wreck antichoice Jo Jorgensen’s chances of attracting any voters male or female.(link) Want graphic proof? Here is how the anarchist+antichoice package deal came in dead last in Travis County, Texas, home of Roe v Wade, the U. of Texas, The Texas Statehouse & Governor’s Mansion and the Travis County Libertarian Party:

anarcho-suicide
Absolute last place, thanks to Jeremy the anarchist!

Just as voters rejected Jeremy “Spike” on the ballots, there are grounds for sitting out this suicidal non-event to invest instead in a donation to the Dallas County LP or to a deserving candidate like Ted Brown or Art Dibianca (if you can get him to accept a donation).

Good reading: Roosevelt’s Secret War, by Joseph E Persico. The book is astounding and the author is every bit the prototype for several John Malkovich roles.(link)

Christian Impersonators

Disclosure: I have never signed up for Faecebook or ßhitter, and removed Whutzup after the Faecebook takeover. I am not the least bit christian, either.

Readers of Libertarian magazines are familiar with True Christians™. (link) You couldn’t ask for a better bunch of hateful bigots to take over a political party and induce voters (especially women voters) to spend the night on a freezing sidewalk in order to vote against that party’s candidates as soon as the polls open.(link) Their humorless hordes invade Youtube, ßhitter and the Reason commentariat, spewing ordurous invective and praising National Socialist book and Beatles album bonfire brigades as a constant reminder of what comes of voting Repooblican. Babylon Beehivers, however, have a sense of humor, kind of like Austinite JP, a Republican cross-dresser who impersonates a libertarian yet never hints that anyone can vote Libertarian.(link)

JP, like Tarl, Spikey & Boothead and Sgt Shellshock (link), is part of a libertarian-impersonating faction of the some anti-libertarian party or parties carefully nudging voters toward religious conversion into Trumpanzees or communist anarchism–never objectivist libertarianism.(link) None mention the law-changing power packed by leveraged libertarian spoiler votes before the platform was polluted by moronic planks and a communist anarchist candidate-impersonator in 2020. Viz.

1.8 Death Penalty

We oppose the administration of the death penalty by the state.

This invitation to enslave taxpayers to house and feed murderers, bombers and arsonists while farming out the use of deadly force to lawless vigilantes was recently recited, Manchurian Candidate style, by Jeremy “Spike” Cohen at a “libertarian” clambake in girl-bullying Texas. At an earlier national LP convention “Vermin,” the street person that wears the rubber boot on its head, picked out the following package-deal to recite, like a feeble-minded child in a Red Chinese school play:

3.4 Free Trade and Migration

We support the removal of governmental impediments to free trade. Political freedom and escape from tyranny demand that individuals not be unreasonably constrained by government in the crossing of political boundaries. Economic freedom demands the unrestricted movement of human as well as financial capital across national borders.

This is a package deal.(link) Libertarians, like Jackson Democrats before them, favor reducing import tariffs to a 10% ceiling, scornfully nicknamed “free trade” by Congressman Norrill. Northern industrial soft machines such as Federalists, Whigs and Republicans demanded protectionism, NOT Emancipation.(link) These latter export cruel, superstitious prohibition laws to wreck all economies south of Brownsville, thereby generating swarms of economic refugees the way Herbert Hooverites did by causing our own Great Depression.(link) Those two planks, both demanding communist anarchism, completely wrecked the Libertarian Party’s progress as a force to be reckoned with. It was recited by “Vermin,” tutor of “Spike.”

Believeis & Boothead
LP Platform experts?

This is because borders delineating the boundaries of jurisdiction are an inherent feature of all constitutional governments political parties seek to worsen or improve. No borders means no government, which is the goal of communist anarchists, not libertarians.(link) Instead of organizing their own parties, communo-anarchists glom onto other parties like lampreys onto fish. U.S. immigration laws specifically banned the importation of anarchists twice.(link) Here is what importing them into the LP platform committee has accomplished:

Good Reading: Watching Darkness Fall: FDR, His Ambassadors, and the Rise of Adolf Hitler, Kindle Edition. Unlike Sgt. Rock comix, this well written book gives the reader a peek behind the curtain of WW2.(link)

We’re your friends!

1942 Nazi Collaborationist recruitment poster says:
“You too are one of us”

Libertarian publications have an “open borders” policy toward Christian National Socialist, Italian and Spanish caudillo fascist and communist anarchist fifth-column infiltrators and provocateurs. Self-delusional intellectuals of these looter persuasions line up to show off their ad-hominem, argument from intimidation and tu-quoque techniques and prove beyond peradventure a shocking lack of familiarity with ordinary methods of inference.

God’s Own Dictator!

Possibly this is a “free-range” approach to letting readers speak their minds. Yet the comments are overwhelmed by desperate Tumpistas parroting and reciting memorized assertions to the effect that vices are crimes, that seditious attempts to overthrow an election are neither crimes nor vices, and that their favorite loudmouth “won” because “we wuz robbed!” The Don can be said to have “won” an electoral college vote, then lost both the popular and electoral votes. This reversal came after backing fanatical bigots in their efforts to infiltrate the Supreme Court and create another mystical theocracy (like Saudi Arabia, Iran, Iraq, Mauritania, Vatican City or Alabama).

Their declamations are bald assertions of the sort shouted in Weimar Germany. There are “only two” vote options, but instead of Christian nazi or commie Jew they push “the right” versus “the left,” (non-nazis) “Democrats” (communists, semites, drugged blacks, drugged latinos, foreign rapists). Highly-leveraged Libertarian ballots are mentioned, if at all, in sneering asides as “wasted” votes. To these are added insinuation to the effect that Reason magazine ought to give Trumpanzee screeching and ordure-flinging a pass and concentrate on articles “proving” that Jo Jorgensen backs communism because she said something nice about BLM demonstrators (not because her campaign was burdened with a communist anarchist scornfully dismissive of the entire Libertarian platform). (link) Interestingly, hardly any Fabian socialists or communists, fewer than 2%, it seems, bother to try to “reeducate” libertarians into embracing compulsion.

But Reason subscribers are now entitled to block the ravings of rednecks with green teeth, televangelical girl-bulliers, eugenic racial cleansing theorists, Christian Fronters, Silvershirts and ku-kluxers. They and others determined to “convert” weak-minded libertarian voters to the One True Faith and Party can be “vaporised” in the truly figurative sense. The improvement does not ameliorate the guilt-by-association gambit. Packing the commentariat with girl-bulliers and snake-jugglers suffices to shock the occasional onlooker into imagining that–because Libertarians support individual rights and are aped in that support by insincere rights-mangling fascists–that somehow makes us “the same thing.” Republicans, like The Prohibition Party and George Wallace fanatics, are a desperate shrinking horde. With 2 to 10 percent of the balloting in local and presidential elections we unseat their politicians for somebody less hateful. Right now we have 352 libertarians in office working daily to repeal cruel laws and stop tax collectors from robbing and shooting people.(link)

We could have four times as many Libertarians holding office if we were to get rid of half the infiltrators glad-handing “we’re your friends” within the Libertarian National Committee.(link) These are the ones cynically urging women voters to “don’t run away!” while helping Republicans violate their 4th, 9th, 13th and 14th Amendment rights.

Translator wheedling

Trust me…

Twenty years ago I got rid of all contracts with translation agencies except for two. Beginners used to compile databases of translation companies and use those to generate personalized mail-merge letters offering to work for very little. When IBM and Microsoft released DOS 3.3, the Proprinter 2 and QuietWriter 3, translation shifted from Europe to America, and “very little” was pretty good. Over time, Europeans learned code pages and bought Windows and the market flattened with the entry of pauper labor.

The recessions that followed the Biden/Reagan Crash of 1987 and the Bush Jr Asset-Forfeiture Crash of 2008 wrecked the profitability of most middlemen. Yet translators are mostly stuck in a time machine, relying on pestering spam instead of personalized mailmerges. Every day I get propositions like:

Salutation: Dear “Hey You”
Attachment: some dreary CV in Word, which is a vehicle for macro viruses
Qualifications: no test passed, no language degree from a real university and no knowledge of math, physics or chemistry

All of these go straight to the trash. Once in a blue moon someone will address me by name, but instead of a link to their website or blog, they attach a dreary PDF. The truth is that anyone with enough language skills and entrepreneurship to be worth asking for help already has his of her own website and writes his or her own bids and NDAs. Translators who want to be taken seriously by law offices, engineering, geology, mining or oil companies, or doctors, manufacturers or what-have-you need websites with taking bilingual CVs, not spam with attachments.

I have boilerplate bids I have used for 20 years, and for a fee make these available to colleagues who will do me proud. Same goes for NDAs. For more on this see A Beginner’s Guide to Handling WIYRdos.(link) Don’t send me “Hey You” spam with Word attachments and no proof of ATA certification or a website. Instead, make your own website and/or blog–and make it attractive.

Mine have served me well for 20 years and freed me from ever again signing lengthy, one-sided “agreements” that never commit to actually paying me–much less doing it on time. Be an entrepreneur, live by your wits and build up clientele by offering satisfaction guaranteed or your money back. Pretty soon beginners will be sending you spam with Word attachments begging to be exploited.

The Unparalleled Bioweapon Attack

Does the altruistic initiation of force in defense of socialism make germ warfare attacks OK? (link)

Reason magazine had been my trusted source of news I can afford for four decades. Their investigative journalism is top-notch and often diametrically contrary to the findings of the looter press. Remember the Love Canal crisis? Of course not! Reason reported that government officials forced the owners of the sealed pit to hand it over or they’d take it by force. That was how a coercive bureaucrats got to put a children’s playground on a chemical dump. They and the Kleptocracy media then blamed laissez-faire greed when a state agency tore open one end of the pit causing leaks. That got memory-holed in a hurry.

The communist dictatorship from which the epidemic spread will not allow foreign physicians and real scientists to test blood samples of Wuhan lab workers. To the Kleptocracy media, the dictatorship controlling China–like ecclesiastical bodies of older religions–is a credible and reliable source of objectively true information that it won’t allow to be verified for reasons of faith. But isn’t China also the dictatorship that–by altruistic coercion no less deadly than that practiced by Germany’s brand of christian national socialism–killed an even greater number of people than its German counterpart?

You tell me…

Good Reading: The Adventures of a Physicist, by Luis Alvarez, is available without leaving your chair on Amazon Kindle. This is the scientist who invented the detonator for the Nagasaki bomb that ended WW2. With his geologist son Alvarez also developed the bolide impact theory of mass extinctions. The dinosaurs–and most other species–were wiped out suddenly. Alvarez explains how a meteor or comet the size of Manhattan or Tinian can again wipe out ignorant or lazy species. Remember that before voting to elect looter politicians who peddle influence and seek to ban human engineering from the solar system.

There are no libertarian socialists

 

Tarl gives a good presentation on how impersonators try to pass themself off as libertarians. Face it, looters with guns sounded cool to have-nots back in the 1850s. Anarchist communists began blowing stuff up and killing people in the 1880s. Finally in the 1920s the world’s first communist socialist dictatorship instantly became a bankrupt police state and resorted to counterfeiting, looting and genocide to nationalize grain and sell it for hard currency. (link)

By 1933 Nationalsocialist Germany was pushing the Christian version of the same thing, complete with eugenic death camps to wipe out innate selfishness and make the world safe for blonde altruism. Honest people tend naturally to cross the street to avoid all forms of socialism. Appeals to mysticism and eugenics have weakened since Howell’s “Traveler from Altruria” exploited them as the entering wedge for the looter totalitarianism that briefly dominated pre-nuclear Germany. (link)

Even so, the self-deception induced by altruism leads many–even some who can actually read and write–to aid, abet, cover-up for and assist these parasitical political ideologies in the only way that works anymore: hyphenating them onto other kinds of ideas the way lampreys fasten onto a normal fish. Hence such aberrations as “democratic” socialism, liberal-socialists, social-progressives, right-wing socialism, “left” libertarianism and “anarcho-capitalism”. 

Murdering communist backstabbers

Anarcho-communist “friends” of the LP

The only mimesis that is really damaging is the grafting of coercive parasitism–even if in name only–onto the individualist nonaggression that embodies the Libertarian Party. Communist altruist anarchism has failed. It failed when cash voting named the derailed Austin convention TANSTAAFL instead of suicide-vest Ancapistan. But the message our looter adversaries take home from this failure of international Communism is that Christian National Socialism is now winning the battle for looter control of the LP. To them it’s either-or–one form of aggression or the other.

Squeeze out pups, bitches!

Ceaușescu meeting with The Antichoice

We are about to discover if Jo Jorgensen is a Phyllis Schlafly infiltrated into our party. Now would be a good time to delete all pederasty, secessionist and uninspected entry language from the platform and replace it with endorsement of an Equal Rights Amendment to ensure that women are not targeted for special coercion in another Republican+Dixiecrat eugenicist War on Individual Rights. Romanian dictator Nicolae Ceaușescu tried that, and Mitt, McCain and Sarah Palin tried it again. (link)
