Banana Republic of Texas

Future Texas Ballot?

“Which button tells them to go to hell?” “Dunno, but if you press that green one, the voter goes to hell.” (No Libertarian Party is allowed in Brazil, Bolivia or Venezuela. NOTA beats the 32 subsidized parties in Brazil’s big cities.)

Texas was part of Mexico until just before the Opium Wars. Given today’s Landover Baptist Republicans and People’s Party Democrats, it might as well rejoin the Latin American Papal States. Come to think of it, that might not be so bad.

Old hippies’ pension checks stretch farther in Mexico, where small amounts of enjoyable plant leaf products are no longer framed up as some sort of victimless crime. And if the Libertarian Party is kept off the ballot, ku-klux Dixiecrats and Nixon Moral Pejoratives will again be free to dictate how Texas females must labor against race suicide.

In point of fact, It was Nixon’s Anti-Libertarian Law that opened the floodgates to voter suppression. That 1971 enactment shakes down workers to fund the soft machines used by political parasites to facilitate further extortions. Then, embarrassed at having gone for Johnson instead of following the anti-choice Dixiecrat stampede for George Wallace, Texas repented. By the time Arthur Bremer closed off that pathway to Positive Christianity in power, Nixon’s party had incorporated much of the Dixiecrat platform and Texas voted Republican.

Now, guess which State recently arrested and is trying to send a young black lady to the penitentiary for five years for voting while on probation? Guess which State sentenced a schoolteacher of latina extraction to eight years in the slammer (with deportation to follow) for daring to imagine a green card meant she could cast a ballot? Finally, guess which State has Republican politicians pressing to force the LP off of the ballot?

Reverting to Mexican statehood would appear to offer no net loss of individual rights. You can take Texas out of the juntas, but you can’t take the caudillos out of Texas!

Dixiecrats v. Libertarian Party

Collectivist National Socialism

Wallace’s ‘Murrican Party platform carried 5 states and rewrote the GOP Bible

This just in:
A couple of months ago, the Arkansas state legislature, a.k.a. the Sahara of the Bozart, pulled some shenanigans and rapidly pushed through an “emergency bill” to make it nearly three times harder for us to get ballot access there. Why? Because Republicans are scared to compete with us.

Why else would so many Republican sockpuppets sign up as Reason Magazine commentators? Their mantra is the same fixed-pie mentality that is the foundation for communism. A vote for the LP is a vote “for” the same LIBERAL party that in 1930 added repeal of the 18th Amendment to its platform and helped the Dems win with it. That plank alone won the 1932 election plus five more.  Republican prohibitionists turned to Franklin Roosevelt’s enemies for help. The last thing the GOP wants is spoiler voters interested in individual rights costing them their political jobs, power, pelf and boodle.

Franklin Roosevelt’s enemies were German National Socialists. These were politicians of the very party Herbert Hoover had helped take over Germany by giving them a Moratorium on Brains in 1931. The moratorium excused Germany from paying war reparations to its victims and also from repaying loans taken from American suckers.  This so-called “standstill agreement” is right there in Atlas Shrugged, a book which, with the non-aggression principle, was written as nazis were tried and hanged in Nuremberg:

“The economic condition of the country was better the year before last than it was last year, and last year it was better than it is at present. It’s obvious that we would not be able to survive another year of the same progression. Therefore, our sole objective must now be to hold the line. To stand still in order to catch our stride. To achieve total stability. Freedom has been given a chance and has failed…. So we’ve got to stand still. We’ve got to stand still. We’ve got to make those bastards stand still!”

“The country” Wesley Mouch was referring to could easily have been Nazi Germany. In fact, we had come this close:

Republican National Socialism became ingrained after Dixiecrat spoiler votes nearly blocked Nixon’s election. George Wallace in effect rewrote the GOP platform just as Ralph Nader’s econazis rewrote the Democratic party platform after the y2k election. Today’s Republicans shout “liberal” in exactly the same tone as 1930s nationalsocialists shouted “liberal” and “Jew.” Some people have a hard time letting go of hillbilly superstitions.

Libertarian Saure Diethylamid

100 signatures sufficed for ballot access then and there

Another outside party turned up in 1970 opposed to aggression, conscription, prohibitionism, victimless crime laws and Comstock laws and in favor of relegalizing drugs. The obviously Libertarian Buffalo Party’s planks soon turned up in the platform of the Libertarian party. With fewer than 4000 votes the LP blocked Dixiecrat laws forcing women to reproduce against their will. The current wave of plant leaf decriminalization is the result of Libertarian Party spoiler votes over the course of 12 national election campaigns. It took 11 campaigns for the Prohibition Party to make beer a felony. Spoiler votes have finally become a mechanism for increasing freedom by throttling back coercion.

Thirteen to one

Entrenched looter parties are struggling to keep a lid on libertarian vote counts by pigeonholing us in with asset-forfeiture parties (CPUSA, Green, Constitution, Prohibition, Tea…). For instance, at U. of Virginia–of which Thomas Jefferson was once justly proud–readers of opinion poll entrails put up a smirking election results article out of which the word “Libertarian” has been rectified with Inner Party precision.

The Florida LP missed a spoiler vote opportunity when it shied from running a candidate for the Senate. The Asian-style socialist beat the European-style nationalsocialist by a tenth of a percentage point. Gary Johnson got 2.2% of Florida votes two years ago, so this tight a race would have been easy to reverse into a gain for women with pro-choice LP spoiler votes. The GOP winner is rated 0.0 by NARAL on female individual rights to birth control.

With no Libertarian candidate in the running, that race did reveal that the ratio of votes tallied to partisan voters registered was less than one for both the Republicans (0.86) and Democrats (0.90). Florida, with 28% Non-Kleptocracy or Non-Duopoly voters was below the 1/3 cutoff for the chart below. But if the tallies there are at all representative of the nation, Libertarians are at least twice as effective at rounding up upset votes compared to the parties that fought the Civil War over tariffs, embraced Comstock laws, enacted the Prohibition Amendment, imported the Income Tax from the Antebellum Communist Manifesto, napalmed Vietnam and bombed Ottoman dregs until terrorists attacked U.S. buildings.

Kleptocracy sources now group all but The Kleptocracy into unperson categories. Adding together their figures lets us sort states by tenuousness of The Kleptocracy’s grip on their own voters:

Libertarians are in here somewhere...

States with 1/3 or more voters not registered GOP or DEM

Compare the above with states in which Libertarian candidates covered the law-changing spoiler vote gap in 2016:

Libertarian spoiler votes make the worst looter lose.

State leverage is a function of the size of the LP vote that covered the gap and the number of electoral votes involved in that race.

Colorado, New Hampshire and Arizona are definitely interesting places to look for Libertarian successes. Recall that success can mean repealing bad laws, getting our candidate elected, or both. The rest of the states in the top chart merit examination to see if unspoken-for voters there can be persuaded to let go of plant leaf prohibition, high taxes or efforts to make electric power scarce and expensive.

Private Gofundme donations for a border fence and Republican Senate gains this past election are strong evidence that mutilating the Libertarian Platform plank on border security has made it a liability to LP candidates, staff and volunteers. That makes it a current asset to parties eager for wholesale importation of girl-mutiliating terrorists and economic totalitarians. By restoring:

However, we support control over the entry into our country of foreign nationals who pose a credible threat to security, health or property.

to the Migration plank, we could again attract voters who are not interested in mass importation of berserkers or undesirables. The other sane alternative is to finish amputating the bloody stump and say nothing about borders–a subject already covered in the Constitution and federal regulations communist anarchists never read.

The other recently tacked-on plank–asking that someone other than government be entrusted with enforcement via deadly force–is also counterproductive, anti-libertarian, and certain to cause voters to cross busy streets to avoid our candidates. Complete mid-term vote counts are amazingly scarce, thanks to skillful elision, but LP supporters, donors and members have been dropping fast lately. That much is easy to verify.

Think about these planks if you are planning on attending the Libertarian National Convention in Austin.

Obamacare eliminates GOP voters

mystical looter

“I am not a crook!”

Richard Nixon’s Congress modified the tax code to force every American to subsidize Republican and Democratic candidates–precisely when the Libertarian Party was formally organized. This was a brilliant strategy.

These IRS transfer payments have since 1971 transferred money from producers to media presstitutes. In exchange, those worthies constantly din into voters heads’ that a libertarian vote is a wasted vote. To persons of a couple of standard deviations lower than normal intelligence, this sounds like a valid argument. The premise, of course, is that every election is about the success of individual candidates. The lie they seek to convey is that voting is NOT about the success and freedom of the individuals casting the votes.

Every year more voters send the freedom message to Congress

Logistical substitution curve fitted on LP ballot share: spoiler votes deliver a clear message.

Prohibitionist domination of the Republican party made it as inevitable in 2007, as in 1929, that fanatical coercion of the banking and brokerage system would bring economic collapse. Tammany-style Democrats seen their chance and took it. The doctors who lied about beer, wine, coca leaves, peyote, mescaline, Indian hemp and LSD so that Republican and Dixiecrat politicians could legislate and loot at will were by 2007 a cartel snorting other people’s assets through hundred-dollar bills.

Outside, in the hospital waiting room, the sick and injured die filling out forms and signing over title to property. A license to practice medicine is like a prohibition agent’s license to padlock and confiscate under asset forfeiture. Rather than kill the golden goose by legalization, Democrats offered Socialized Medicine as the panacea for all ills.

Every American is now harried by telemarketing algos and forced at gunpoint to confess on their tax forms–(5th Amendment be damned!)–whether they paid tribute to Obamacare. The only way out of the mandatory funneling of cash to medical mafiosi is to leave the United States. Social Security checks go father in Mexico, Caribbean islands, South America and Canada–especially if you can get a resident visa.

The upside is a Pain Drain–of aging superstitious, brainwashable ex-pats no longer able vote in many US elections. Going, going, gone is their power to make birth control and plant leaves illegal, or to force the unsaved to urinate into sample cups so medical mafiosi can tear up their work permits.

The alternative? Rosa Maria Ortega was sentenced to 8 years in prison (and deportation), and Cristal Mason (guess what color), was sentenced to 5 years in prison. Their victimless crime was the same as that of a dozen others in North Carolina: “voting illegally.” For ex-pats to legally vote nationally, forms must be completed and ballots cast a month before the real election.

Ex-pats often cannot vote in the local elections that decide whether Stateside real estate will be exorbitantly taxed, then taken. Geezer Old Party voters must eventually choose between affordable medical care abroad and voting to bully pregnant women and shoot or jail blacks and hippies Stateside. Democrats, meanwhile, are busy trying to shut down electric power plants.

If you do not want to shoot kids over plant leaves, bully pregnant women, cause economic collapse or make electrical energy a controlled substance, you might want to vote Libertarian.

Selfishness before Ayn Rand

Egoism does not aggress or rob

See 1940 original

In 1940 France and Britain were having expensive regrets about welshing on the loans they’d begged from the United States during WWI.

These United States were again selling them victuals and materiel they could not obtain from National Socialist Europe or Soviet Socialist Asia. But enslaving American youth to again intercede in bloody squabbles among European opiate peddlers was asking a bit much. To European socialists of both national and international persuasions, this refusal to sacrifice was the height of egotistical selfishness.  But is that the same as greed?

Selfishness is not predatory

Tatsuya Ishida’s SINFEST–The webcomic to end all webcomics

Ayn Rand had published Anthem in an England that was rapidly being transformed into the exact setting in which the novella had unfolded. Yet British intellectual-impersonators still echoed Hitler’s calls for “The Common Good Before the Individual Good.” Fifth-column agitators meanwhile harkened back to to the very Jesus der Fuehrer so often quoted, exhorting Parliament to surrender:

“Do not resist the one who is evil. But if anyone slaps you on the right cheek, turn to him the other also.” –Matthew 5:39

But Americans were learning by watching the “peace” coercive altruism had forged in Europe since the Molotov-Ribbentrop Agreement divvying Poland. Slavery, starvation, war and pestilence sprouted wherever predatory altruism lifted its outstretched arm in salute. The purpose of applied altruistic socialism (whether Christian fascism or lay communism) is to seize by force and threat of violence that which someone else has labored to produce. Ask yourself if this does not sound just a bit like greed, like coveting–then seizing–your neighbor’s goods?

Is this not Christian Socialism?

FAITH, OBEDIENCE, FIGHTING SPIRIT–The Catechisms of Fascism

Karl Marx did not use the wordcapitalism” in his Altrurian Bible.  But his disciples wasted no time in re-coining the term to describe the Christian monarchic mercantilism built upon coercive monopoly, slave labor and opium wars viewed as sublimely utopian by Adam Smith. Yet here we are in the 21st Century, while superstitious fanatics raid households and vehicles while looting bank and brokerage accounts under the aegis of “asset forfeiture.” If you rob a judge at gunpoint, that is your act of robbery. If the judge sends goons to rob you, that is your forfeiture of assets in the language of looter kleptocracy. Make sense? Libertarian, on the other hand, makes it clear that robbery and extortion are double-plus ungood.

If getting the exact meaning is important in your original work, isn’t it just as important in translation?

MEMBERSHIP DRIVE-BYS

The webcomic to end all webcomics

Sinfest, by Tatsuya Ishida–no holds barred!

MEMBERSHIP DRIVE-BYs: PLATFORM PLANKS & RESOLUTIONS adopted by infiltrators and useful idiots to drive away voters and supporters.

These abound in political organizations. In Republican documents, lurid reefer madness propaganda and calls to arms for Girl-Bullying Amendment (ver. 8.0) are examples. Among Democrats, shrill misquotations of evasive pseudoscientific Doublespeak and mournful cries for new and higher taxes fill the bill. Both sclerotic looter gerontocracies with only coercion to offer seek to terrify voters by casting “the other” party’s candidate as the incarnation of Satan in cloven hooves. Ah! But this is what enables Libertarian spoiler votes to maneuver those parasites into letting go of their most obnoxious laws!

Are you between these two forms of socialism?

Either-or Left-And-Right Socialism

To traditional looter kleptocracies, a key to enabling collectivism to keep on coercing is binary either-or framing: communist or fascist, left or right, Trumpista or Antifa! They NEVER publicly acknowledge the law-changing power of outside-party, neither-nor spoiler votes. This they water down by declaring themselves centrists, moderates, or some linear miscegenation of part-Hitlerite part-Stalinist policymakers–at least in America. 

Observe that U.S. looters focus on the job-seeking competition as the embodiment of absolute Evil and struggle to evade mention of law-changing libertarian spoiler votes. But the LP vote share is nevertheless increasing in hockey-stick acceleration! What’s a wilting Kleptocracy to do?

LPvotescurve16

Even looters know that ignoring a problem does not make it go away. To them, a way must again be found to cause the Libertarian Party to make really dumb mistakes–fritter away what money it can raise–and so alienate voters as to make us look bad even compared to The Kleptocracy! There’s a tall order…

The GOP and Dems would be careless indeed not to again infiltrate and sabotage the LP as they did in the 1980s. So how about treacherously poisoning our decision-making process? Here is another of the latest such efforts passed by the Libertarian National Committee:

Whereas, the plurality voting election method is the weakest voting method and a deeply flawed way of electing government representatives and officers; and Whereas, there are many alternatives to plurality elections, many of which have strong advocates promoting their specific benefits, and it is generally accepted by experts and advocates alike that there is no such thing as a perfect voting system, but each of these alternative systems is generally regarded as being superior to plurality elections; and (scolding cant omitted…)
Therefore, be it resolved, the Libertarian National Committee is committed to the widespread adoption and implementation of alternative voting methods to replace plurality voting elections.

Normal voting has been the American system for over two centuries. If it’s bad, then why is it that so many people seek to flee here that there is a movement afoot to build a wall to keep them out? The US Constitution stipulates the weakest voting system? By what standard, or compared to where? Generally regarded by whom?

There are exactly six (06) “preferential” collectivized vote countries (the same as the number of communist countries if you include Venezuela):
Australia (forced to vote at gunpoint, suffers rolling Blackouts; Only 12% of Australians enjoy being forced to vote in their collectivist system, and 19% consider it unfair),
Ireland (finally repealed 35 years of constitutionally coerced reproduction in May 2018–by normal 2/3 vote restoring individual rights for women),
New Zealand, (population similar to Alabama’s, with no LP)
Northern Ireland (there’s your ideal political State!),
Scotland (mystical girl-bullying laws eroding slowly), and
Malta (Comstock law birth control bans. A “libertarian” club with an antichoice GOP poster-child).

Of these 6 “superior” countries, only Ireland unequivocally recognizes the individual rights of women.

So if the idea is a Catholic or Mohammedan theocracy, or an anti-industrial revolution, only then does gauntlet-glob voting look better than that in the Constitution of These States. Individual reproductive rights for women are impaired in 5 of these 6 countries. Observe also that there are no swarms of refugees trying to get into these six easily-gulled countries, or the six communist countries. Of people who vote with their feet, 97% prefer elsewhere

Not so fast! Libertarians are comfortable with 3% of the vote repealing bad laws that once coerced 100%. And we’re no more popular with the Great Brainwashed than the communists were before they put the Income Tax into the Constitution. Perhaps there is some hidden advantage to collectivized gang-votes? Is there an upside for 3rd parties that only the LNC, in its majestic ideality, was able to perceive?

There are none better than the Australians to defenestrate THAT pipe-dream. Australians clearly state: 

3. It promotes a two-party system to the detriment of minor parties and independents.

That anything this dumb can pass in the LNC is evidence of gross mismanagement and self-deception. Ask yourself: Is this likely to rally voters to our candidates? Cause thinking people to join and pay dues? Attract donations from intellectually honest individuals? Not from what I’ve seen lately.

The Three-Party Problem

Courtesy, Wikipedia commune

The Kleptocracy divides into two factions based mainly on who gets the pelf and the paychecks. Because they strive to finagle votes from the same voting population, they are as alike in platforms and positions as teevee stations in a regulated oligopsony. A rogue party is as disrupting as a pirate station.

This is old hat to looter gerontocracies. The Prohibition party, fueled by Dodge, Rockefeller, Morgan and Vanderbilt donations, sought the violence of sumptuary law. The proto-libertarian Personal Liberty League formed to resist in 1883 but was outgunned. Lobbies are no match for parties when it comes to determining the direction in which government service pistols are to be pointed.

Republicans became painfully aware of Prohibition party spoiler vote clout once the Democrats (the slave of the liquor party) began declaring against “sumptuary laws which vex the citizen and interfere with individual liberty” and elected Grover Cleveland. For similar reasons most voters twice elected Barak Obama after George Bush’s faith-based asset-forfeiture prohibitionism wrecked the economy.

John Sherman, whose brother had Marched Across Georgia, warned mystical fanatics “not to throw their votes away.” But communist Greenbackers carefully avoided mention of temperance-at-gunpoint, and looter parties generally dismissed prohibition as something they’d support IF… (there followed a list of qualifiers that cheerfully enraged the Methodist White Terror). Soon communists were writing tax planks for the Democrats just as mystical prohibitionists began dictating dry planks to Republican platform committees.

The Sixteenth Amendment embodies plank 2 of the Communist Manifesto while the 18th and 21st presume to empower men with guns to shoot people over sugar, yeast, grapes, plant leaves and anything mildly enjoyable or likely to reduce human suffering.

Both of these constitutional Amendments–AND the victimless crime laws that imprison far and away more people than all combined crimes violative of rights–were passed at the behest of two tiny, fanatical, but consistent and dedicated political parties. Together they elected practically nobody and between them hardly ever garnered 3% of the popular vote. But they were a thorn in the side of the Janus-faced communism of pelf that cares about nothing other than its snout in the trough and hand in the till. THAT changed the laws and Constitution!

The irresponsible cupidity of the entrenched kleptocracy was what allowed this despoiling of freedom. But today’s prevailing rule of terror is being reversed by the 3% of votes earned (and proud candidates elected) by the Libertarian Party–to the extent that its platform is not deliberately sullied with counterproductive nonsense.

If in need of simultaneous political interpreting, do get in touch.
