Prohibition & Chicago gunslingers…

Force begets violence…

World population in 1930 was just over 2 billion back when Corn Products Refining’s Argo plant was the largest supplier of the corn sugar from which over 95% of all beverage alcohol in America was made. The plant was located (spoiler alert!) next to Cicero, where the Capone brothers helped voters select appropriate politicians to help keep saloons and speakeasies open. Shootings abounded, many of them dry killers shooting motorists or Coast Guard patrols machine-gunning entrepreneurs supplying the Windy City with Beelzebub’s Beer and The Demon Rum. These shootings the Methodist Board of Temperance and Public Morals had applauded as God’s own warfare against controlled substances they declared narcotics. It’s like a natural law: For every initiation of force there is unequal but apposite retaliatory force.

Will Rogers described the situation resulting from laws against production and trade (rather than violence) with good-humored understatement:

“Well all I know is what I read in the papers. Now just what has been agitating the natives? Oh, yes! Can you imagine arresting a man in America for carrying a gun nowadays?
Why, in Chicago there is a pistol pocket put in your pajamas. There is thousands in the underworld there that are faultlessly dressin’ in artillery, that haven’t got underwear on.” –Will Rogers, 30MAR1930 (link)

Anarchy worked OK for Comancheria–before General William Tecumseh Sherman demonstrated the superiority of modern genocide over primitivism. But in prohibitionist industrial Chicago anarchy meant warfare, plain and simple. Chicago was again violent when conscription press gangs grabbed black and white citizens as cannon fodder for the former French opium regie of Cochin China, later renamed Vietnam. Gangs of “narcotic” agents meanwhile kicked in doors and shot people over hemp twigs and seeds, or nontoxic entheogens. Harvard professor Timothy Leary went into exile sheltered by the Black Panthers. So where does this lead?(link)

Other states are repealing these vicious and violent usurpations as quickly as can be managed, but not Illinois. It is true that Illinois politicians claim to have “decriminalized” hemp leaves. But lots of people claimed the Dems had promised to do the same in 1972–which was a lie. That platform bristled with the same ignorant violence as did the Republican half of the Kleptocracy.(link)

Why be fooled again? Why not vote for what you want instead of being manipulated by fear and social pressure into throwing away your vote. An independent vote instantly has 25% more clout. This was verified in the Solomon Asch experiment in dozens of repetitions.(link)

Libertarian-impersonator resigns!

Mr. Henchman,
I am writing to request your resignation from the LNC (Libertarian National Committee).(link)

I have no idea whether you are an impostor, hostile infiltrator, spy, traitor, plant, agent provocateur or fool. The function of spoiler votes has been published and out in the open for a full 12 years now. Yet you pretend we are a jobs agency for wannabe politicians.(link)

Our job at this position on the logistics replacement curve is to minimize coercion by publishing a good platform and running candidates to defend that platform. Fratricidal efforts by the looter factions will do the rest of the work for us. You, however, are a liability to this effort, whereas Bill Weld is an asset.(link)

If you do not believe me try your hand at running for at-large elected office rather than working to destroy our platform. Your votes are still welcome, but your resolutions, advice and meddling aren’t.(link)

In any case, this is a formal request, perhaps the first of many, from a card-carrying, dues-paying Libertarian party volunteer and member of long standing. I’ll be happy to put this on parchment and publish it before the world.
Cheerfully,
jhenryphillips.com, Thursday, February 7, 2019, 11:15 AM.

Voters clearly repelled by no-borders anarchism, mercenary executions plank, and batshit-loser albatross for VP (link)

Reason Magazine announced on June 23, 2021:
“Joseph Bishop-Henchman resigned Friday as chair of the Libertarian National Committee…” (link)
Needless to say I was thrilled, though disappointed it took the brood parasite 2 years, 4 months and 3 weeks to finally resign. I am indebted to the New Hampshire LP for whatever it was that accomplished what needed to be done.

For the record, I have volunteered for the Travis County Libertarian Party since 1983, pay dues and volunteered for the Libertarian Defense Caucus since 1982, paid dues and supported LPs and candidates since that time, thanks to Petr Beckman convincing me it was right.(link)

In Austin, Texas, Travis County, communist anarchist Spike dragged Jo to last place!

Henchman, Spike, Vermin, Secretary Tokyo Rose et alii are a replay of communist anarchist infiltrator Jeff Hummel, whom Fred Ebner identified as a candidate for agent provocateur and saboteur in the Travis County Party. Search the Google News archives or any other compendium of newspapers from the last 200 years and you will see that up until 1971, all anarchists describe themselves as communists and socialists, and all journalists understood that communists, anarchists and socialists (national and international) are the same thing compared to laissez-faire free traders, Objectivists and libertarians.

Since The Terror, A is a subset of C

It was only after we formed the party that violent, legalize-murder communists baptized themselves soi disant libertarians, and began the work of polluting the original 1972 platform with idiotic planks designed to repel voters.(link) They have likewise been instrumental in deleting the plank that protected women from the bloody-coathanger Dixiecrat fanaticism of George Wallace partisans, and striving to undermine the Second Amendment in favor of “treaties” with communo-fascist dictatorships.(link)

Why ranked voting?

Racial collectivist spoiler votes dismembered the Solid South

All major changes in America since 1840 have come from the platforms of small parties. Sometimes these parties themselves became Soft Machines in their own right or remakes of earlier Soft Machines whose names became associated with excessive corrupt venality and parasitism. Big Government Federalists collapsed and reformed first as Whigs, then as Red Republicans. Smaller parties, typically formed around a particular issue, in every case end up winning either by swallowing a legacy half of The Kleptocracy or by causing it to incorporate them and their platform as its own–as occurred when Nixon Republicans incorporated George Wallace Dixiecrats (complete with watered-down racial collectivism and prohibitionism) over the course of the 1968 and 1972 elections.

During those same elections the laissez-faire youth movement, with its Human Rights and Buffalo Party factions, was gradually submerged by Democrats pushing the sort of unionized socialist, socialist labor and communist parties that had multiplied sevenfold after FDR beat Herbert Hoover. Republicans absorbed the Prohibition Party and KKK in 1928 and 1932, enacting confiscatory policies that wrecked the banking system, then the entire economy. The Great Depression increased Communist Party membership till it practically swamped the FDR Administration. Activists concerned with repeal of cruel laws were submerged by established looter parties advocating a planned economy no less coercive than that of the Republican-Prohibition coalition of the Progressive Era and Roaring Twenties.

Dixiecrats divided the Dems after the JFK assassination and Vietnam debacle

The only real change has been the Nixon Anti-Libertarian Law of 1971, using the IRS to subsidize anti-libertarian party campaigns no matter how lamentable or deadly their aims. Now, suddenly, lobbyists for a gauntlet-style election process that lines up candidates and ranks them by the amount of hatred or adoration they elicit in extremely complicated processes intended to replace runoffs after close elections.

Speculative math aside, my question is: when was the last time a libertarian candidate won a ranked/gauntlet election? 

If never is the answer, I’d love to know how LP candidates did percentage-wise compared to earlier non-gauntlet elections in the same precincts.

The recent drop in Libertarian spoiler votes occurred in exactly the same electoral environment as our 328% gain in 2016–with rival Kleptocracy factions shrieking election fraud when defeated. The only difference were the anarchist plank to invite more terrorists and welfare state failures across the border, and the anarchist plank intended to replace execution of mass murderers with vigilante violence. Both of these planks–plus an ignorant anti-libertarian nihilist candidate on the top ticket–served to alienate 2/3 of the voters who eagerly supported the Libertarian Party in 2016.

Ranked gauntlet voting will not restore the popularity of a Libertarian Party given over entirely to communist, anarchist and nihilist orators. In fact, its adoption in internal LP elections resulted in appalling losses of lamentable national candidates even when state and local candidates fared well after having themselves been selected the way that worked for the two centuries preceding Nixon’s election subsidies law.

So what evidence from reality shows gauntlet voting has ever helped further reduction of the initiation of force?

Opposition party spokesman Styx

Exploiting the wishful self-deception of frustrated National Socialists has evidently become an attractive enough source of income to attract hepcats willing to stoop for easy pickings. The message is the usual litany of tu quoque and turgid accusations against lengthy rolls of dramatis personae. In other words, the usual serving of Nationalsocialist hot buttons with pauper foreigners instead of communists and wealthy mixed-economy parasites instead of stock-exchange Jewry. Appeals to Jesus are not as frequent as Hitler’s and the fascist penchant for pointing guns at women’s clinics is sidestepped and suppressed at every opportunity. By miscopying several tangential libertarian talking points, people like Tarl and Alex Jones color their performances with enough faux-libertarian mimicry to reassure Republican and Army of God dupes that they have a better understanding of freedom and coercion than libertarians–let alone godless atheist objectivists.

A side effect of these cheap imitations is that the semiliterate communist and cultured looter intelligentzia both have an easier time convincing THEIR dupes that libertarians are girl-bullying, Comstockist, book-burning, ku-klux lynch mobsters of the sort that voted in Bush & Bush2, yet failed to saddle us with McCain and Harridan or Mitt and Whutzisface. Real libertarians, these prophets assert, vote to send men to point guns at doctors and nurses at women’s clinics and to kick in the door and shoot dogs, kids and other occupants who might otherwise use the wrong kind of plant leaf. Why? Because all the things they predicted Clinton and Obama wanted to do, the other half of the force-initiating Kleptocracy are about to do–if God’s Own Prohibitionists don’t win–are much worse. Fascism’s a lesser evil, hence a Greater Good, got that? It doesn’t matter that Obama didn’t boil missionary children the way Republican National Socialists prophesied. None of the things Hitler said about Jews ever happened either, but the NSDAP went from a Gary-Johnson-like 3% to nearly half the total vote. Enough to jail their opponents and justify nuking those same duped voters had they not killed themselves in the nick of time

To make the theatrics more convincing, Comstockist republicans and communist anarchists have quietly infiltrated the Libertarian Party since 1980.(link) This is easily seen by comparing the original 1972 and 1976 platforms with current editions. Easily seen, that is, if you can find an authentic Libertarian Party platform. Here’s the April 2021 search result on a Kleptocracy site: (link) This is in keeping with the publication of National Party Platforms in 1972, listing every Kleptocracy, communist, socialist and prohibition platform since 1840, but NOT the 1972 Libertarian platform which the U. of Illinois Press disparaged and elided from its published compilation. An exhaustive inner search turns up this version NOT findable via Google: (1972 link)

Words in the Libertarian Party Platform

1980s platforms were soon swelled and contaminated with “Children’s Rights” (Child Prostitution, Molesting) planks that have not yet been deleted entirely.(link) Instead, voters are told to pretend they aren’t there. In 1992, after George Holy War Bush demanded the death sentence for some plant leaves and was ousted for senility, the LP platform was a rambling 12,435 words amounting to an hour and 20 minutes of boredom. A resumption of glossolalian tendencies in 2004 brought an apposite reaction and in 2008 the platform was again terse, even if unattractive to the female half of the electorate. Women were twice attracted to the party that wrote the Roe v Wade decision and handed it to the Supreme Court. So if clowns, anarchists, fascists, con artists and impostors are able to impersonate and infiltrate the LP–even mine it for enemy votes and donations like so many brood parasites, we have only our own Platform Committee to blame.(link)

The communist anarchist interpretation of the objectivist Non-Aggression Principle is non-sequitured into a demand that infected cattle, terrorists, foreign comandos and peasants fleeing Republican-exported economic collapse must enter uninspected into These Sovereign States.(link) That suggestion was entered into the platform as soon as The Kleptocracy realized that our 4 million spoiler votes had shifted way more than enough votes to change the outcome.(link) All Tarl and Alex have to do is fulminate against such treasonous gibberish and The Kleptocracy is free to kick in doors, confiscate your car and home for no reason and nobody will say a word. Another new plank calls for keeping the government out of the death sentence, presumably so good faith Army of God vigilantes can have a free hand killing individuals and not even face a hanging.

The brutal murder of any number of handcuffed black gentlemen is waved away by waving a throwdown coroner’s report saying the victim was actually walking-dead before the First Responder™ crushed his throat–settled science. Self-deception enables Tarl to imagine anyone actually believes the throwdown report. Women who watched news of Robert Dear murdering people at a Planned Parenthood wouldn’t vote differently if the fabrication were exposed and admitted in writing. Republicans (Trump, Judge Amy, Linseed Graham Cracker, Ted Hakencreuz and Congressharridan Greene-Teeth) want people like Robert Dear to coerce them with loaded guns on behalf of Their Invisible Friend. THAT settled the issue and also settled the outcome of the election. Inventing invisible vote fraud is the self-deception of bullies that just got their butts whipped by a bunch of girls, nothing more. Tarl and Alex helped elect Biden and also to undermine long-term support for peaceful non-aggression. They must be proud.

Lysander Spooner’s oath

It seems like it has to be fiction, right? Wrong! (link)

Spooner wrote: Go to A….. B……, and say to him that “the government” has need of money to meet the expenses of protecting him and his property.  If he presumes to say that he has never contracted with us to protect him, and that he wants none of our protection, say to him that that is our business, and not his; that we choose to protect him, whether he desires us to do so or not; and that we demand pay, too, for protecting him.  If he dares to inquire who the individuals are, who have thus taken upon themselves the title of “the government,” and who assume to protect him, and demand payment of him, without his having ever made any contract with them, say to him that that, too, is our business, and not his; that we do not choose to make ourselves individually known to him; that we have secretly (by secret ballot) appointed you our agent to give him notice of our demands, and, if he complies with them, to give him, in our name, a receipt that will protect him against any similar demand for the present year. 

The original law passed by Republicans reads:  “I, A.B., do swear, or affirm, (as the case may be,) that I will, to the best of my knowledge, skill and judgment, diligently and faithfully execute the office and duties of assessor for, (naming the assessment district,) without favor or partiality, and that I will do equal right and justice in every case in which I shall act as assessor.” And a certificate of such oath or affirmation shall be delivered to the collector of the district for which such assessor or assistant assessor shall be appointed. And every assessor or assistant assessor acting in the said office without having taken the said oath or affirmation shall forfeit and pay $100, one moiety thereof to the use of the United States, and the other moiety thereof to him who shall first sue for the same; to be recovered, with costs of suit, in any court having competent jurisdiction.


Section 12. And be it further enacted, That the Secretary of the Treasury shall establish regulations suitable and necessary for carrying this act into effect; which regulation shall be binding on each assessor and his assistance in the performance of the duties enjoined by or under this act, and shall also frame instructions for the said assessors and their assistance; pursuant to which instructions the said assessors shall, on the first day of March next, direct and cause the several assistant assessor’s in the district to inquire after and concerning all lands, lots of ground, with their improvements, buildings, and dwelling houses, made liable to taxation under this act by reference as well as to any lists of assessment or collection taken under the laws of the respective States, as to any other records or documents, and by all other lawful ways and means, and to value and enumerate the said objects of taxation in the manner prescribed by this act, and in conformity with the regulations and instructions above-mentioned.…

The second part or the original law reads:

Section 52. And be it further enacted, that should any of the people of any of the States or Territories of the United States, or the District of Columbia be in actual rebellion against the authority of the government of the United States at the time this act goes into operation, so that the laws of the United States cannot be executed therein, it shall be the duty of the president, and he is hereby authorized, to proceed to execute the provisions of this act within the limits of such State or Territory, or District of Columbia, so soon as the authority of the United States therein is reestablished, and to collect the sums which would have been due from the persons residing or holding property or stocks therein, with the interest due, at the rate of 6% (him thereon until paid in the manner and under the regulations prescribed in the foregoing in the foregoing sections of this act. 

This Spooner translated from vague, political legalese to the vernacular:

If he refuses to comply, seize and sell enough of his property to pay not only our demands, but all your own expenses and trouble beside.  If he resists the seizure of his property, call upon the bystanders to help you (doubtless some of them will prove to be members of our band).  If, in defending his property, he should kill any of our band who are assisting you, capture him at all hazards; charge him (in one of our courts) with murder, convict him, and hang him.  If he should call upon his neighbors, or any others who, like him, may be disposed to resist our demands, and they should come in large numbers to his assistance, cry out that they are all rebels and traitors; that “our country” is in danger; call upon the commander of our hired murderers; tell him to quell the rebellion and “save the country,” cost what it may.  Tell him to kill all who resist, though they should be hundreds of thousands, and thus strike terror into all others similarly disposed.  See that the work of murder is thoroughly done; that we may have no further trouble of this kind hereafter.  When these traitors shall have thus been taught our strength and our determination, they will be good loyal citizens for many years, and pay their taxes without a why or a wherefore.  

These were the exigencies of the war to preserve the Customs Union so that a Protective Tariff could smother competition from European or Canadian makers of plows, scythes, hoes, chains, knives, rope, bridles, bits and farm implements in general and allow Yankee manufacturers to set prices without fear of being undercut. Slavery had nothing to do with it except to preserve the backward colonial hub of the metropole-colony engine for enriching the nouveau Metropole of New England. The first Tariff of Abominations brought the threat of secession and federal coercion. The Morrill Tariff of 1860 made it reality and sparked the War Between The States.

Placed under oath

I swear by my life and my love of it that I will never live for the sake of another man
Nor ask another man to live for mine.

Question for the late Jon Roland, of Constitutionalism…

Article 6, paragraph 3 of the Constitution states: “but no religious Test shall ever be required as a Qualification to any Office or public Trust under the United States.”

On several occasions I have had judges try to put me under oath to work as an officer of the court by asking me to perform to specifications “so help me God.” When I reply that “yes, I will interpret faithfully and accurately with or without help,” I am sometimes questioned, even pressured, to endorse something or someone nobody cares to define or produce evidence of, to act as my assistant

If a judge were to administer an oath endorsing other, equally mysterious helpers such as Allah, Bob, Thor, Minerva, Ra or Krishna, I would bet money and lay odds that the requirement would not pass unchallenged. Indeed, Mennonites and Amish congregants have some sort of objection to oaths per se, and are granted the option of affirming instead, but this sidesteps the issue of helpers lacking tangible credentials or ID being appointed by a particular judge, with those appointments confirmed by a court interpreter acting under what is tantamount to duress or intimidation. 

My question is this: Is there case law or jurisprudence to the effect that interpreters may be required to endorse “God” to assist us in performing interpreting work under oath? 

If there is I would very much like to challenge any such outcome based on the Thirteenth Amendment ban on slavery or involuntary servitude–at least until such time as God is verifiably paid by the courts for assisting in the performance of interpreting services rendered–and taxed on that legal income by the IRS. It hardly seems fair to drag someone into court to work for free as a helper to someone else who is actually getting paid.

Jon replies…

Is there case law or jurisprudence to the effect that interpreters may be required to endorse “God” to assist us in performing interpreting work under oath?

Not at the level of the U.S. Supreme Court, and they are not a proper part of any lawful oath of office. George Washington added the words “so help me God” to his oath, as was commonly done, but that is a gloss, not a requirement, and many sects, such as Quakers, protested enough that it was not an oversight to leave the words out of the Constitution.

Did you know that a witness, though he may be compelled to testify, may not be compelled to take an oath? That means that any false testimony would not be subject to the law of perjury, although it might be to the law of fraud. Traditionally, judges instructed juries to weigh that in considering unsworn testimony, which has not been uncommon in a country where many are not devotees of an Abrahamic faith.

All persons with sworn duties in court, including witnesses, are officers of the court, which is the entire assembly, not just the presiding officer, the judge, who only speaks for the court. Anyone may raise an objection, and should be allowed to participate in argument, not just the attorneys. The rules of parliamentary procedure were developed alongside the rules of courts and a court is just one kind of deliberative assembly.

Girls Batter Bullies

God’s Own Prohibitionists will eventually learn about women voters. (link)

Republicans are baffled at how religious prohibitionist national socialism could POSSIBLY be defeated in an honest election. After all, Trumpistas, like Herbert Hoover had the support of every mystical bigot in These Sovereign States. This is hardly the first time the baffling dilemma has surfaced. 

Anthony Comstock, religious fanatic turned Postal Inspector, in 1873 got President Grant to sign a law to make any kind of birth control–including motherly advice to daughters if posted–pretext enough for five years on a chain gang and a fine in gold worth $600,000 of today’s dollars. Theodore Roosevelt made it clear in 1903 that a woman’s place was in the Lebensborn maternity ward laboring against race suicide as recommended by Francis Galton before Galton was even knighted by His Royal Majesty King Edward. 

That law kept Margaret Sanger from imagining that the First Amendment had anything whatsoever to do with what women said or thought even after women helped elect Warren Gamaliel Harding. Harding, who kept three mistresses in addition to his wife, questioned the right of women to wear pants and thereby make the streets hideous. Women who had Hooverized against the Hun during the Great War eagerly voted their Food Czar into the White House. In this they were joined by the Ku-Klux Klan, whose feelings were hurt at the 1924 Democratic Convention, and by the Methodist White Terror, which by 1925 controlled 117 seats in the House and Senate.

No race suicide movement in eugenic National Socialist Germany!
Hoover’s 1929 inaugural speech declared “we are building a new race…”

The important thing then was to have more men with guns kicking down doors, shooting people, confiscating and padlocking property and seizing cash, bank and brokerage accounts suspected of giving aid and comfort to the Demon Rum of Beelzebub’s Beer. The prohibition law had in 1920 wrecked the economy until the police themselves took over bootleg booze production and smuggling. Prosecutor Mabel Willebrandt was America’s darling–less so to Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Holland, Switzerland, England, Scotland, India and Japan–after whe convinced the Supreme Court the IRS ought to charge taxes on proceeds from heroin and cocaine in addition to the beer, sauerkraut and everything else containing 0.6 ounce alcohol per gallon.

This meant that drinking enough near beer to amount to a single shot of alcohol required drinking an amount of water sufficient to kill half of the customers hardy enough to try. Amid the flagpole-sitting and dance marathon crazes of the Roaring Twenties, several people died in contests held to prove the health-benefits of water-guzzling. European stock markets weakened into a downward slide as of May 1927. The U.S. bull market lasted until the Five and Ten law made beer and wine a felony the way the Comstock law had done birth control 44 years earlier. But when Prosecutor Willebrandt hit the glass ceiling at the DOJ, resigned and published the tell-all series “The Inside Of Prohibition” syndicated in 21 papers, the stock market went into its death spiral harbinger of The Great Depression, which increased Communist Party membership by some 800% and swamped the Dems in the 1930s.

Then The Reagan-Biden Crash of 1987 foretold the recession that ditched Daddy Holy War Bush. Then the faith-based asset-forfeiture crash of 2008 made girl-bullying bigots unattractive to women voters. Now after Boss Trump tried to push Ku-Klux Dixiecrat reversions to girl-bullying Comstockism, God’s own Prohibitionists lost again.

Conclusion? 2020 HAD to be voter fraud! No way would women wise up and vote against those who deny them individual rights, right?

January 20, 1940 The real Thing Goes to War — Today in History

On January 20, 1940, Winston Churchill urged neutral nations to oppose the Nazi war machine, warning that “Each one hopes that if he feeds the crocodile enough, the crocodile will eat him last.” Meanwhile in Germany, Coca Cola was the undisputed king of the domestic soft drink market.

January 20, 1940 The real Thing Goes to War — Today in History

Economic Power v Political

Remember in physics how force x distance is Work? And the rate at which the work is done is Power?

John Hospers, the first Libertarian Party candidate for President, then an organizer of the Libertarian Defense Caucus gave a definition of economic power in his book Libertarianism (link)

Economic power is simply the right under freedom to refuse to make an exchange.

Ayn Rand defined it thus: 

It is the power to produce and to trade what one has produced.

She went on to explain that: 

Political power is exercised by means of a negative, by the threat of punishment, injury, imprisonment, destruction. 

In a free society, economic power is like the generation of electricity. It therefore follows, as night follows day, that the generation of electric power draws the boiling wrath of all sensitive, concerned and aware totalitarians, who imagine it will exterminate mankind, cause Misanthropic Global Warming Climate Change Sharknados as predicted by 1961 Soviet propaganda.

To politicians and weapons designers, political power is the rate at which disobedient citizens or foreign aggressors (or both) can be transformed into cadavers. It is the line integral of harmful and deadly force over whatever distance is needed within a timeframe important to them.

So next time you cast a vote, look at the ballot and notice that of the three options you have, only Libertarian Party candidate Jo Jorgensen offers you the opportunity to vote AGAINST the initiation of deadly force required by the increase of political power. That same option enables you to vote FOR the increase in freedom that means the same thing as the reduction of coercive force. It also means an economy less threatened by prohibitionist asset-forfeiture crashes, collapses and Depressions.

Hockey stick for Libertarians!

Libertarian vote share after Bush asset-forfeiture crash

THIS is the either-or. The Republicans and Democrats BOTH want your sanction to beat the other looter so they can rob and coerce you with less interference. Only by voting Libertarian can you go on the historical record and figure in important statistical curve plots as being FOR the increase of freedom and AGAINST coercion.

This is the ethical decision, the choice between right and wrong, now placed before you. Germans made the wrong choice in 1933 by voting for a politician. The Japanese, Russians and Italians made similar mistakes in their choice of men while ignoring the laws of physics and ethical distinctions popular candidates urged them to ignore. 

Make your vote MATTER for a change!

She’s with Us!

The Forgotten Man, 2020

Drug Czar Jim Carroll

Forgotten man in Opposition to Legalization and Public Awareness–The Drug Czar

William Graham Sumner wrote the original Forgotten Man essay back in 1883, and produced several versions. He explained that whenever altruists A and B get together to decide what C (Citizen) shall be forced at gunpoint to do for D (Destitute). C is the Forgotten Man in the equation, the man coerced into footing the bill.(link) This Citizen was in 1883 the Forgotten Man whose interests and happiness were entirely overlooked and ignored. Franklin Roosevelt tried to recast the scenario with Destitute–the victim of prohibition-induced economic collapse–as the Forgotten Man, but the ploy never did replace Sumner’s original–namely you, dear Reader. 

Just recently we’ve had to acknowledge a spate of murders committed by lazy, out-of-shape, union-collectivized policemen. Typically the victims are brown people. Eric Garner was suspected of letting people buy single cigarettes to allay cravings instead of loading up with sealed packs of habit-forming, Polonium-transmitting excise-generating drugs. He was gang-lynched by First Responders™. Philando Castile was murdered in his car with child and ladyfriend because Minesota First Responder™ Jeronimo Yanez imagined he smelled hemp–the stuff upon which the Bill of Rights is printed.

The Forgotten Quaker Warmonger

War On Drugs, Anti-Libertarian Law, bombing of children 1971

Atlanta cops woke a man up and shot him in the back. A black policewoman was no-knocked and riddled with bullets in her bed because Louisville politicians signed prohibitionist zealot orders to raid her apartment. The same happened to an elderly couple in Houston on orders no less fraudulent. And just the other day a brave First Responder™ shot an unarmed man in the back seven times for no good reason. Another 1009 people were snuffed out this year, always on orders from Democratic and Republican Party zealots imagining plant leaves to be avatars of Satan. No libertarian Party elected official ever issued such orders.(link)

And murder you with total immunity from prosecution

And shoot you dead in bed, and loot your belongings

Like Newton’s Second Law–the one with the equal but opposite reaction force–persons terrorized by politicians using arbitrary police as hired killers have taken to attacking police no less arbitrarily and just as violently in places like Los Angeles and Phoenix, Maryland, Washington and Oregon prompting a political officeholder to remark: 

“Thus far this year, 74 law enforcement officers have been killed in the line of duty in the United States of America,” he added. “Unfortunately, I don’t hear a lot of people speak to that.”

Well listen up. In 2020 America, entirely controlled by the East German Democratic and God’s Own Prohibitionist soft machines, altruists A and B issue orders for C (Cops) to murder D (Drug suspect), mostly brown and youthful. As inevitably as night follows day, fake news media hold microphones into which red-faced police union goons fume and sputter over the “senseless and cowardly” treatment of maimed and murdered officers–protected, of course from civil and criminal liability by the sort of “qualified immunity” that did not save Christian National Socialists from the gibbet at the Nuremberg trials. Their victims need not even be charged under Reagan-Bush-Biden Civil Asset Forfeiture, and may be shot like dogs with perfect impunity on any fanciful pretext thanks to the Asset Forfeitures Amendment Act of 1986 as amended in 1988.(link)

The usual link to the text of this law–“the” law which caused the Crashes and recessions of 1987 and 2008, and the Flash Crashes of 2010 and 2015–has been interdicted by looters in protest against a competing gang of looters.(link) See for yourself. (link) They call the censorship a “hiatus.” I was expecting this, so here’s a link to the full searchable text of the law with errors in the original preserved.(link)

The big difference today is that the Forgotten Man is no longer C, the angry Citizen or remorseless Cop on the beat. The perpetrators unnamed, unmentioned and unquestioned are the Politician, the Preacher, The Bureaucrat, the Prosecutor and the Judge who in the roles of A and B got together to have people murdered as “no-nonsense” examples. They are murdered to please “shall not be questioned” Legislators and Lobbyists whose pseudoscientific votes declare War on plant leaves feared as avatars of Satan. Voters aid and abet this connivance out of fear of social pressure.(link)

Plant leaves are incapable of surrendering, but the War proposition still makes sense to looters granted immunity from even being mentioned in connection with the results of their weaponized acquisitive altruism.  Today’s Forgotten Man is the Politician and Bureaucrat of the mixed-economy Political State soft machine. These are the deadly people I vote against; I vote Libertarian.(link)

These hidden persuaders–the Politician, the Preacher, the Prosecutor and the Judge–are never mentioned in the aftermath for the same reason Libertarian Party candidates are never mentioned. You wouldn’t want voters to think too clearly about the deeds their votes ordered done by the better people who know what’s good for the riff-raff.(link
