Country Joe, Libertarian

This was before there was a Libertarian Party

Ever since 1968 Country Joe Macdonald has been a heroic pioneer by my lights. Imagine my surprise in discovering that he actually played benefit gigs for the Libertarian Party! Here’s a peek at what you can find on his website (link)

Some Differences Between You and the Major Candidates Running for Office This Year

1 The Economy
They are rich, have health plans and pension plans. If they lose their jobs as politicians they can easily get other jobs or simply retire.
You are not rich, just barely have a health plan, and a modest pension plan or no pension plan at all. If you lose your job you may not be able to get another one and cannot afford to retire.
2 Violence
They are protected by bodyguards, live in safe “gated” communities, drive in bullet-proof cars and work in “guarded” buildings. They don’t need to have or carry guns because their bodyguards do that for them.
You have no bodyguards, live in regular accessible communities, drive a regular car or have no car, and work somewhere where there is no protection against violence. You might have guns but cannot carry them around with you all the time and are doing other things besides just waiting for trouble to happen like a bodyguard.
3 Family
All the members of their family are very safe. They have health insurance and seldom have to travel the streets or highways regular citizens do. They do not do their own shopping, cooking, or washing, they have servants to wait on them. If they do not get jobs it does not really matter they still have plenty of money. They have as much leisure time as they like. They do not take care of their children at all; they have servants to do that.
Your family is not very safe. You could get run over by a car crossing the street or carjacked going shopping. Your family must somehow see to it that the shopping, cooking and washing gets done or there is nothing to eat or wear. You are living 24/7 and have no time to do much of anything but rush around “working.” Even your vacations if you have any are limited and rushed. You must take care of your children and other family members.
4 Gender
They can afford lots of lawyers to protect them and their rights to be sexually whatever they want to be. They are mostly male.
You can hardly afford one lawyer to fight for your rights. One half of you are female.
5 Voting
In national elections it matters very little if they vote or not, but they get to have a real vote on all the national and international issues that affect every aspect of your life. They can afford to lobby for issues they think are important and directly talk with important people to influence the outcome of important issues they care about. They are mostly white and male.
You can vote in national elections but the electoral college does not have to pay attention to your wants. You do not get to vote on any domestic or international issues at all. You have no access to important people at all. Many of you are not white and male.
6 War
They get to decide if there is a war or not but they do not fight in wars. Their family members do not have to fight in wars except if they choose to. They are not in the military and most of them have never been in the military. The outcome of wars that they decide to fight has very little effect upon their lives. They are mostly white and male.
You cannot decide anything about going to war. You may be in the military now or have been in the military. Your family members may be in the military or be forced to be in the military in times of war. The outcome of wars and your participation in war can ruin your life forever. Many of you are not white and 50% of you are female.
7 Abortion
They can afford to get or not get an abortion as they see fit. If they have an unwanted pregnancy they can afford to have the child taken care of by servants. They can travel to other countries where abortions are legal. They can hire lawyers to protect what they do about abortion. Mostly they cannot get pregnant because they are male.
You and your family can be ruined by an unwanted pregnancy. You cannot afford to travel out of the country nor hire lawyers to protect what you do about pregnancy. 50% of you can get pregnant because you are female.
8 Work
They have huge staff of people — some paid, some volunteers – who do work for them. They have secretaries, interns, chauffeurs, advisors and even “mouthpieces” to explain to whoever wants to know what or why they will do or did what they did. If they run out of ideas they simply hire a “think tank” to think for them. All of their expenses are paid for by the taxpayers and their rich friends. They have office space paid for by the taxpayers. They and their staff are mostly white and male… except for the interns.
You have to do everything yourself. If you screw up you have to explain to the world why you did. If you run out of ideas you just have to struggle with it. You have to pay for all your help out of your own pocket. You worry all the time about “cash flow.” You can hardly afford to keep afloat. You pay taxes. Many of you are not white; half of you are female and millions of you are not old enough to vote and are working illegally. Many of you can’t vote because you are homeless and have no permanent address.
9 Running for office
They can afford to run for public office.
You cannot.

Libertarian vote growth
Vote share is %, 01 is 2000 election

The above Country Joe comparisons were posted 20 years ago. Since then, specifically since 2008, the LP has taken off. Our share of the vote increases 80% per year, tripping up the entrenched parties’ efforts to trip each other and grab more loot.  Suddenly they are deleting cruel planks and rushing to repeal violent laws in hopes the other will get knocked over by Libertarian Party spoiler votes. The graph looks like this with (01) being the 2000 election. In 2016 the LP got 4 million votes, covering the gap between the two entrenched parties in 13 states casting 109 electoral votes. Thanks to the LP.org, the electoral college now cares deeply about your wants.

This is your 12th chance to vote Libertarian or sanction additional coercion. Which will it be? 

Make your vote MATTER for a change!

The Looter Kleptocracy has evidently pressured media companies such as WordPress to make blogging as difficult as possible before the election. Twelve million libertarian votes would go a long way toward removing new impediments to blogging and restoring the usual formatting tools.

This is your 12th opportunity

What (not who) will you vote for?

 In 1840 your male vote for Northern Democrats said “rob me;” for Whigs said “raise import tariffs,” and for Southern Dems said “rape black women and beat the men to death.” Your vote said one or the other

In 1860 there were no more Federalists or Whigs, only high-tariff spenders on improvement and primitive rapists and bulliers of slaves.  Your male vote said either “protective tariff” or “secede from the monopolistic high-tariff Customs Union.”

In 1880 your male vote could say “arrest, tax and rob people over whiskey and beer” and “bully them for Jesus,” or “bring back White Supremacy,” or “tax and rob people for communism.” That was the third-party alternative. 

In 1900 your male vote could say “make war, raise tariffs and ban liquor and drugs,” or “White Supremacy but no sumptuary laws,” or “tax and rob people for communism.” All three alternatives required coercion.

In 1920 your vote could say “White Supremacy and sumptuary laws” or “sumptuary taxes, confiscation and imprisonment,” or “tax and rob people for communism.” All three alternatives required the initiation of force.

FINALLY in 1972 your vote could say “White Supremacy and sumptuary laws” or  “conscription, bombing, fascism and Comstockism,” or “replace the initiation of force with freedom and individual rights for women!” For the first time ever, spoiler clout leverage worked in favor of freedom and against coercion at gunpoint. The LP got under 4000 presidential votes then, and over 4.5 million in 2016. That’s an increase of a factor of 1100 over the course of 44 years in which the world population doubled.

Now that we still have such a clean cut alternative, in 2020 you may for the 12th time choose one of 3 alternatives on the ballot in every state: You may vote to “endorse Nixon fascism,” or “endorse Eurasian communism” or “increase freedom by reducing coercion!” Two of these choices are the same as asking to be whipped, paddled and humiliated. Only one tells politicians that you have enough dignity to recognize and enforce your own individual rights and the rights of others. 

This is your 12th chance to vote Libertarian or sanction coercion. Which will it be?

Altruistic Climate Arson

Open Borders Burn Baby Burn!

Read the original (link)

Would a self-sacrificing woke altruist toss a handful of burning straw into a forest to wake people up and Save The Planet? The job is easy… no annoying surveillance cameras to provide embarrassing evidence, and there are thousands of instances of similar arson going on right now within cities bristling with cameras. West Coast newspapers are now trying to avoid the subject and whine at how elected officials avoid being looted by the IRS.(link)

Use your Chinese computer to search for “forest arson” and screen after screen fills up with “climate arson nonsense,” “forest arson rumors,” and innuendo branding as loony anyone able to think for a minute that the people who deliberately set fire to stores to send a political message would ever dream of torching a single bough of one of Joyce Kilmer’s trees. (link)

The 1988 forest torchings torchings in Israel coincided with a sharp upswing in forest firebuggery in California, Oregon and Washington–States so loaded down with Asians that they insisted on a Chinese Exclusion Law back in 1882–renewed in 1893. The communist system in Europe was collapsing in 1988, with people fleeing by hundreds of thousands to escape totalitarian altruism. It’s a rare communist anarchist zealot who would pass up the chance to make Fearless Leader look good by amplifying terror of Misanthropic Climate Warmunism. But China itself has its own mysterious forest fires blazing, suggesting that two can play.  “Open Borders” rhetoric inviting uninspected entry is one of the chinks in Uncle Sam’s territorial jurisdiction that invite invasion by foreign commandos and facilitate arson by miscreants within.(link

But that’s crazy talk. “Sane” talk is Assistant Drug Czar Joe Biden bawling that Boss Trump is engaging in “climate arson.” Libertarian voters are witnessing the failure of a Kleptocracy so enraged by it’s own Janus-faced other half that it will deliberately burn cities and forests and shoot people in the back in a bid for more political power with which to wield added harmful and deadly coercive force. Voting Libertarian is voting against aggression. (link)

Libertarians against Crash and Depressions

 

Since 1998 I have shown that Prohibition enforcement–telling people at gunpoint what they may consume–caused the Crash and Great Depression. It is also the cause of most organized crime and cowardly ambushes of citizens by police and vice-versa. Voting Libertarian is your chance to save the economy from prohibition related depressions as in 1907, 1920, 1929, 1969, 1987 and 2008–not to mention the Flash Crashes. It is also the best way to keep your kids from being shot by men with guns acting on behalf of dangerous zealots inflamed with pseudoscientific beliefs. 

Republicans crash the economy by sending goons to confiscate homes, autos, bank accounts, brokerage accounts, life savings, aircraft and equipment. This causes money to disappear from the fractional-reserve banking system, and brings liquidity crunches, bankruptcies, stock crashes, recessions and unemployment. It also undermines the value of private retirement accounts. 

Democrats help Republicans do all of the above harm to the economy, and also to casually murder young people–especially young brown people–while importing the failed communist and national socialist policies that impoverish and kill people wherever they gain a foothold. Democrat-controlled cities resemble Venezuela and Cuba, Angola, Bangladesh, Mozambique, Syria and Togo. Democrat efforts to make demonize electric power and man industry are no less superstitious than Republican coercive exorcism of plant leaves as avatars of Satan. Helping either gang of looters is self-destructive and wrong. Setting them an example, and letting them lose by ignoring it is a teaching experience. 

The 2020 Republican and Democrat platforms STILL call for men with guns to rob, jail and shoot kids over plant leaves. 

Here are the Libertarian vote share percentages for the 2000, 2004, 2008, 2012 and 2016 elections now increasing at a slope of 1.2 or 50 degrees. This logistic replacement curve indicates we are on track to secure eleven million votes this presidential election. This will also upset many down-ballot races by upending the more violent candidates in favor of less cruel, better-educated and less fanatical replacement officeholders.

Killers with Badges, 1929

First Responder murderers acquitted

Gunfire-riddled auto in which Henry Virkula was murdered by ICE agents in 1929

Henry Virkula was out for a drive with his wife and kids when customs agents leapt out of the bushes and riddled their flivver with buckshot the night of June 8, 1929. This was during Dry Hope Herbert Hoover’s Administration under the Five and Ten law making beer a chain-gang felony 2 days before his Inauguration. Like today, the Methodist Board of Temperance, Prohibition and Other People’s Morals bellowed that the killing was “justified” under the eugenicist tenets of Positive Christianity. Dry Killers was the exact technical term used by citizens and newspapermen alike.

Army of God, just following orders

Christian National Socialists exulted in dry killer antics

First Responders were, as always, justified in murder, according to the experts on what Jesus would have done: 

“The second case was that of the De King killing in Aurora, Illinois.  That seemed perfectly horrible until the facts were ascertained and broadcast.  Now the most intelligent people know what happened and see considerable significance in the fact that the grand jury refused to indict the officer involved.  (…) On the Rouse case, the Board said Officer Rouse “killed a rum-runner in the act of committing two felonies,” adding: “The rum-runner had made an assault upon him by the use of poisonous gases produced by a smoke-screen device.  Officer Rouse was completely exonerated by the grand jury.  (…) (LA Examiner 6/17/1929)

Does this sound like a Minnesota cop union mouthpiece waving an “official” medical examiner’s report?(link

There were no throwdown guns, throwdown beer or throwdown medical examiner documendacities or rumors of active warrants to get overeager ambush murderers off the hook. In fact, the International Falls City Council promptly gave notice to Republican President Herbert Hoover on 18JUN1929: 

Dear Mr. President: The International Falls City Council voted and passed upon the following resolution:
                “Whereas at an open meeting of business men and city officials of this border city last June 14 an informal appeal to the President was drawn up, asking him to end the terrorism inflicted upon our citizens and neighbors by Federal customs patrolmen, engaged in prohibition enforcement;
                “and whereas, our appeal has remained unanswered, even though the vicious and unlawful conduct of said government agents have continued unabated‑‑except that there has been no fresh murder of our innocent neighbors;
                “Therefore, be it resolved that we, the City Council of the City of International Falls, in regular session assembled, do hereby remind the President that the memorialization of the citizens’ appeal was and is the articulate pleading of the community:
                “And be it further resolved that the City Council of the City of International Falls does hereby join its official voice in requesting from our President an urgent response to the pleas for help from our people. (Hoover 1929 1974  195)

Senator Millard Tydings of Maryland was at the time compiling a list of prohibition murders, naming names and giving particulars for publication in “Before and After Prohibition,” so politicians encountered tough sledding trying to ignore over a thousand slaughters.(link)

I thought I smelled beer... BLAM BLAM BLAM!

“Send these murderers to the penitentiary” appeared in Congressional debates.(link)

None of this mattered. It was only late in 1929 that statistician Clark Warburton began pointing out that the black market in banned beverages amounted to 5% of the entire U.S. economy, an amount larger than the entire budget of the federal government tasked by the 18th Amendment with killing, confiscating, libeling, padlocking, jailing and murdering every man woman and child in These States if that’s what it would take to force people to drink what the Prohibition Party ordered them to drink.(link) The Prohibition Party averaged 1.4% of the vote in 11 electoral campaigns. There was no Libertarian Party, but there was a Liberal Party demanding repeal.(link)

Libertarian vote growth

Can you say hockey-stick replacement curve?

By January of 1930, no religious fanatics dared debate the Association Against the Prohibition Amendment, armed with Warburton’s exhaustive reports and calculations on consumption of every possible ingredient used in the production of recreational beverages.(link) Women came out for repeal and financial collapse, unemployment, burgeoning prisons, Hoovervilles, riots, blockades, arson, cop-killings, hunger and economic contraction got the voters’ attention.(link)

The Democrats copied the Liberal Party plank demanding repeal of the Prohibition Amendment.(link)  Hoover promptly became a repeal advocate, but Republican National Socialism was into coercive eugenics and helping Hitler to power, and wouldn’t listen.(link) By March 4, 1933, with every bank in the nation already closed down, Franklin Delano Roosevelt was sworn in and the Dems–who had not yet become communists–ruled the roost for 20 years. 

Does any of this sound familiar? like it rhymes? Why not compare the short and simple Libertarian Party Platform? 

Are you surprised to learn how the repeal of prohibition began? Buy my book, Prohibition and The Crash, for a month-by-month examination of how President Hoover’s enforcement of the Jones Five and Ten Law crushed the U.S. economy.

Voting against communo-fascism

The Texas LP is finally responding to the whining entreaties of “both” Kleptocracy parties.(link) Democrats are beginning to understand their party is only democratic in the sense that East Germany was “democratic” in 1989. George Wallace and burning Beatles records at Klan rallies were still getting top Democrat billing in 1974, as the Hero of Chappaquiddick quietly shuffled out of the bid for nominations.(link)

Send a message to Washington!

Remember George Wallace’s War against Race Suicide birth control?

Joe Biden is a man to thank if your children or dog were shot by no-knock Exorcists of Satanic plant leaves.(link) (link) (link) If your property, vehicle or bank account were taken from you via asset forfeiture, Joe Biden, Ron and Nancy and the Bush dynasty are the perpetrators of the Anti-Drug Abuse Law of 1986 making that happen.(link) (link) Biden may not recall the law that caused the Crash of October 1987, but I do.(link) I vote Libertarian.(link) Read the law and find out why the Comstock-tool Post Office is failing, about mandatory minimums, Doomsday prohibitionism for the “wrong” kind of leaves and seeds took decisions out of the hands of the judicial branch.(link) That Doomsday Machine caused the Crash of 2008 and Flash Crashes of 2010 and 2015.(link

Learn, Baby Learn

The Bush Dynasty bombed distant fanatics and brought retaliation on Americans

The Republicans lost with every religious fanatic candidate since the George Bush Jr asset-forfeiture crash.(link) Daddy Bush bombed primitive Mohammedan tribes to steal oil instead of permitting U.S. nuclear power reactors to light our cities–and look what happened! Trump is perhaps more competent than those losers, but the Republican Party isn’t. Now the Chinese Communist party is using germ warfare to wreck the economy in hopes of gulling Americans into electing a senile, mindless puppet.(link) Rotsa ruck with that!

Libertarian Competition increases Freedom

We are freer today than we were before the Libertarian Party got the looters looking over their shoulders!

So you can maybe understand our raucous laughter when looter shills whine that “a vote for Jo is a vote for (looter kleptocrat)” My vote for Jo is a vote for Libertarian Party principles that have worked for me since 1972. My vote for JO packs 20x the law-changing clout of a vote wasted on lying looters. They know that 0.0000014% is 20 times more than the normal grovelling 0.00000007% cast my a herded peasant.(link) My vote tells the looters to go directly to hell, do not pass Go, do not rip me off for another $200. Patrick Henry sent a similar message to the British Government.(link) They laughed, they made fun of us, attacked us… six years later we won and the King stopped laughing.(link

Remember mercantilist monarchies?

We send communo-fascism to the dustbin of mystical monarchies!

Sue for Peace!

Spoiler vote clout

A Klanboy and His Dog, 1960

The abject terror with which both halves of the force-initiating kleptocracy now face each other is an opportunity not to be missed.(link) In one fell swoop, every voter with any capacity for independent thought can multiply a single ballot’s clout into a Sword of Damocles.(link) The beautiful part is that each libertarian spoiler vote’s sword can, with Solomonic impassivity, force all champions of the initiation of force in violation of individual rights to sue for peace by changing their platform demands and repealing their victimless “crime” laws.(link) Why not make the looters Sue for Peace on Drugs?

Hockey stick for Libertarians!

Libertarian vote share model predicts 9.2 million presidential LP votes in 2020.

Republican Richard Nixon added a War on Drugs to the War on the Vietnamese, the War on Poverty and the War on Women. Nixon’s Moral Majority televangelism deftly purchased the cooperation of the looter media via the Nixon Anti-Libertarian Law, then co-opted George Wallace’s Ku-Klux Kollectivist demands and parlayed them into the Republican Gentlemen’s Agreement to break up the Solid South.(link)

Teddy the Chappaquiddick Quitter

Democrats STILL favored Wallace’s racial collectivism in 1974!

By this mechanism (and some gunfire), Eugenic pseudoscience again became law and prisons filled with nonviolent hippies, black and brown folks, all thanks to the transubstantiation of victimless trade into imaginary crime.(link) Pregnant women nevertheless managed to escape religious fascism’s trap thanks to the Supreme Court’s adoption of a 1972 Libertarian plank into its Roe v. Wade decision.(link)

Democratic party communists promptly adopted the “War on X” concept in more garbled terms. “No Justice, No Peace” is another demand to surrender to communism no different from the “Freeze” movement disemboweled by the Second Amendment. “Just say No” (or be arrested) was a Biden favorite. “Black Lives Matter” is the same appeal to racial collectivism as “Saving American Lives” is an exploit of nationalism used to mask the identities of government-backed killers.

Change accelerates with integrity

Logistics replacement curves describe choices that change(link)

But now that BOTH the GOP and Dems favor men with guns shooting kids over plant leaves, and asset-forfeiture confiscations of homes, vehicles and bank accounts of innocent people, the stupidest thing anyone can do is vote for either party’s candidates. Republican asset-forfeiture as exorcism of Satan will ruin the economy even faster than the creeping communism favored by the Dems.(link) After that it guarantees they will win the post-Crash elections just as Dems won from 1932 to 1948. 

Fascist altruism or communist altruism?

This false alternative happened when Germans abandoned freedom

Listen to what they say about each other and it hasn’t changed. For the last eleven campaigns both looter parties have struggled to ignore the Libertarian party and sworn the other would destroy America.(link) Suckers and cowards repeat this endlessly–even fake libertarians.(link) Vote for the superstitious initiation of force to save us from the communist atheist initiation of force was what Von Mises, among others, intimated to help elect Hitler.(link) A looter vote says only that another cowardly 0.00000007% of Americans wants to be coerced toward fascism or communism. A Libertarian spoiler vote says 20 times louder: sever that hand from the till! Let the chips fall where they may–I will settle for nothing less than freedom from coercion and full individual rights!(link)

Why be a coward or a sucker when by having some integrity you make twenty times the difference for yourself and your loved ones? Winning is improving your lot. Losing is surrendering to the machine! Make a real choice.

Me First!

Catch-22 by Joseph Heller

Individualist values

“From now on I’m thinking only of me.”
Major Danby replied indulgently with a superior smile: “But, Yossarian, suppose everyone felt that way.”
“Then,” said Yossarian, “I’d certainly be a damned fool to feel any other way, wouldn’t I?”–Catch 22

Concern for one's safety in the face of dangers that are real and immediate is the process of a rational mind

Joseph Heller

1961 was a good year for individualism. Joseph Heller’s Catch-22, eight years in the making, was finally published.(link) Robert Heinlein thumbed his nose at the officious editor who’d persistently harried him on the silliest pretexts, and penned Stranger in a Strange Land, wherein Jubal Harshaw confesses: 

My dear, I used to think I was serving humanity… and I pleasured in the thought. Then I discovered that humanity does not want to be served; on the contrary it resents any attempt to serve it. –Robert Heinlein

Today we vividly remember 2001 as not at all like Arthur C. Clarke predicted. Instead of moon colonies we again got murdering religious fanatics on a rampage combining racial collectivism and mystical eugenics. Yet that was only 19 years ago. In 1961 people remembered with equal vividness the 1941 attack on Pearl Harbor two decades earlier. Like when initiation of force and faith brought on the Prohibition and Capitation Tax Amendments, along with World War One. This was followed in two decades by the 1940s alliance of murdering religious fanatics on a rampage combining racial collectivism and mystical eugenics–and brought an eerily familiarity, disconcerting to grownups at the time.

Freedom is Slavery

Making the world safe for christian altruist eugenicism

In 1945 the true meaning of Positive Christian altruism, of “the common good before the individual good” was discovered amid starvation and lice. The value of the accepted Eugenic premise that altruism and good were the same thing suddenly had become way too clear when Russian and American troops discovered death camps in and all around Germany.  Many of them eventually read Atlas Shrugged, which included a non-aggression pledge penned by Ayn Rand while nazi war criminals were sorted out between the gallows and prison cells. That was at Chapter Ten of an eleven-year writing process. But in 1961, Atlas Shrugged was a new book people had only just read. That was 63 years ago. 

All those who place their faith in fire...

Blind faith, fanaticism and the initiation of deadly force, ergo this

In 2001 Soviet communism had collapsed ten years earlier. In 2020, the Libertarian Party approaches its 50th anniversary. American communism pervading the media and Democratic Party, and American nationalsocialist prohibitionism pervading the Republican Party, are dying.(link) Both chose altruism and the initiation of force as standards of value and correctness. Both are better off gone. 

Hockey stick for Libertarians!

Libertarian vote share after Bush asset-forfeiture crash

Just as oil replaced coal, wood and dead whales, and bytes replaced CDs, cassettes and vinyl records, the Libertarian Party is replacing dangerous fossils the way democracies replaced monarchies, sultanates and sheikdoms a century ago.(link) It is replacing the Kleptocracy with a government–not anarchism–to secure individual rights, and not a moment too soon. Heinlein noted that “Man, as a social animal, can no more escape government than the individual can escape bondage to his bowels.” He also observed in a very nuclear age that “Each sunrise is a precious jewel… for it may never be followed by its sunset.” I you vote for the initiation of force, you will probably get exactly what you voted for.

The Prohibition Kleptocracy, 2020

When Nixon was running for re-election, many young people imagined that Eagleton’s Democratic party had made up its mind to stop sending men with guns to shoot people over marijuana. Almost nobody eligible to have the guns pointed at them read political party platforms. Unlike 1932, newspapers in 1972 made a point of not publishing party planks, thanks to the Nixon Anti-Libertarian Law.(link) The resulting level of ignorance and wishful thinking was summed up by cartoonist Shel Silverstein. 

Joe Biden, who continues to oppose legalizing cannabis, said that more states should “recognize the significant costs to their economy when people with certain non-violent criminal records can’t fully contribute to their full talents and capacity.” However, “even when the states want to give that person a second chance and seal or expunge a certain non-violent criminal record, the record keeping-systems are so outdated, they don’t know how to do it.”(link)

Yet the Dems STILL want the federal government sending unionized looters out to confiscate homes, vehicles and bank accounts while pointing loaded pistols at people. Where in the papers do you see this clearly spelled out? 

Clear reporting on platform planks

Honest reporting helped the Liberal Party repeal Prohibition

In 1972 exactly NO newspapers informed voters of the Libertarian Party’s plank calling for decriminalization of marijuana and entheogens such as mescaline, LSD, psilocybin and mushrooms, DMT and DET, and even bugbear drugs from South american plant leaves and Vietnamese and Afghani poppies. Why?

Nixon’s Anti-Libertarian Law still pays newspapers tax dollars to ignore the LP.(link)  WaPo, the NYT and Chicago Tribune–in fact, every paper in the country would rather see you shot or rot in prison before giving up the political bribe your money pays them to lie, conceal and dissemble in an effort to reduce the efficacy of law-changing Libertarian spoiler votes.(link

I will never buy another paper from those kleptocracy abettors, and I’ve voted the straight Libertarian Party ticket since the dawn of understanding as to what is going on.(link) But if you want to vote Kleptocracy, go ahead. Just do not expect any sympathy from me when your door comes flying in, your dog and kids are shot on a no-knock warrant and it turns out to be another wrong address.(link)

Year of the Grrrl! (link)

Tatsuya Ishida’s embattled Sinfest comic has an arc going featuring a young lady named 2020, who was a mere baby on New Year’s Day. Already we have a break with hoary tradition by which years come in as male brats and leave as geezers. Dilbert comics feature an ad showing a woman (see? It’s catching on already) wearing a disgruntled T-shirt dismissing 2020 as “wouldn’t recommend.” Tat definitely has the more upbeat approach to the upcoming 2020 fall elections. 

Better looking, better educated

Over a decade younger than your average looter geezer!

Libertarian presidential candidate Jo Jorgensen in 2020 is also of the lady persuasion. But unlike the failed lady candidate of 2016, Jo’s platform does not call for sacrificing the economy to warmunist pseudoscience, jailing kids over plant leaves, policing other people’s countries or even more parasitical bleeding of debt-ridden taxpayers to fatten a greedy-but-declining Kleptocracy.

190 electoral votes swung in 2016!

LP spoiler voters shifted 190 kleptocracy electoral votes

Free on Jorgensen’s platform means uncoerced. Looter platforms seek to rob you to buy other votes at your expense. That’s not free. Looter parties know this, and they also know the LP vote share has been increasing by 80% per year. In 13 States Libertarians got more votes than the difference between the party that denies being fascist and the party that denies being communist. Republicans are again trying to ban birth control as in 1873. Democrats and Econazis are doing their best to make electricity scarce and unaffordable, if not illegal.  

Electricity when beer was a felony

Electricity saves women from drudgery

So before you waste 19/20 of your vote’s potential for law changing clout on either coercive, pussy-grabbing septuagenarian, consider that the Libertarian hockey stick just elected 70 candidates and is slowing state and local soft machine growth. If you vote for the initiation of force, you will continue to get killer cops, communist rioters, vigilante avengers, debt, poverty, foreign enemies and increased probability of biological weapons attacks or serious war. What you vote is what you get. 

We wrote the Roe v Wade decision!

The green line shows libertarian votes cutting taxes at the State and Local level.

Spare a thought for these myriad shocks to the US (and world) economies. Consider the safety and financial future of the younger generation as you prepare to vote.
