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.

 

Who defeated Hillary Clinton?

In a Reason article by Cathy Young, American women are depicted as angry because “the expected victory of America’s first woman president was ignominiously thwarted by a man who casually discussed grabbing women’s genitals.” This, I’ll wager, is absolutely wrong. Hillary was defeated by her own platform committee–to the joy and delight of Antichoice televangelists, Dixiecrats and mystical fanatics in general.

Pedants and mystics have since 1945 bemoaned their impression that “our moral progress” hasn’t kept up with our technological progress. And through and beyond 1948 many nations busily captured, tried, shot, hanged and imprisoned the Christian National Socialists responsible for the World War and their government’s genocidal efforts to exterminate all persons even somewhat Jewish. Mendelian genetics at the time caused Germans to presume there is a gene for selfishness. Their industrialized murdering was their effort to make the world safe for altruism. Only Ayn Rand realized during the Nuremberg Trials that altruism is the problem–the ethical error that breeds self-deception and undermines rationality. That error was adopted within and amplified by These United States.

True, Communists were horrified at Ayn Rand’s depiction of their ideal, but National Socialists in These Sovereign States and dominions were just as shocked, appalled and resentful as the communists, for theirs is the same ideal. After all, both parties to the Hitler-Stalin Pact regarded themselves as the real altruists, and the other as the impostor. Since 1957 considerable resources of nazified American political parties and the now-defunct Soviet Union have poured into the problem of trying to make “that woman’s” ethical framework go away. Moral progress is what the Kleptocracy is against!

Christian altruism and communist altruism, one and the same

William Shatner and Spencer Tracy in Judgment At Nuremberg, 1961

It’s working. Hostile infiltrators have caused the Libertarian Party–the party whose 1972 platform is the key verbiage in the Roe v. Wade decision–to impale itself on suicidal planks since its 2016 victory. But similar infiltration by nationalsocialist fanatics first led the Democratic Party to adopt suicidal planks. The party that once elected JFK is now reduced to attacking and weakening America’s economy, defensive capacity and energy infrastructure in preparation for attack by a communist dictatorship that has already collapsed. Pseudoscience elevated to superstitious hysteria wrote those planks, defeated Hillary Clinton, and now endangers the individual rights Libertarians managed to secure for women since that 1972-73 court case.

Men have no business voting on birth control

 

Republicans are no less guilty. Their party created the Comstock Laws, then copied communist taxation and mystical prohibitionism until it was able to completely destroy the economy from 1929 through 1933, then repeated the process in 1987, and again with gusto in 2008. So OF COURSE the Democrats won, and began pushing a Soviet socialist agenda as avidly as the GOP pushed a Nationalsocialist, Comstock Law, prohibitionism and asset-forfeiture agenda until the collapse resulted.

In 2016 the GOP had to hire a former Democrat to defend its platform eschewing a Carbon Tax and de-industrialization, and heartily defending electric power generation and transmission. The prohibitionist mystical bigots they ran in 2008 and 2012 were rejected by voters just as prohibition-weary voters rejected Hoover, Landon, Willkie and Dewey. The Dems–already compromised by lay looter altruism–were induced to promise to strangle electrical generation and impose a carbon tax on the air we breathe. Whoever wrote those planks defeated the Dems, not Donald Trump. Trump (who I do not support) has turned out way less fanatical a prohibitionist, and far less inclined to coerce women and doctors in order to ban birth control than any Republican in recent memory. This is due in part to the millions of libertarian spoiler votes cast in support of individual rights for women.

Women have met the enemy, and that enemy sits on the Republican, Democratic, and sometimes (it hurts to admit this) Libertarian platform committees.

Koerner fallacy v. Winning

Same smear tactics the kleptocracy used on the LP.org

Small Human Rights Party ad placed before the LP plank legalized women’s rights. See Original

Surrounding every small party dedicated to change–for better or worse–is a fog of panhandlers eager to bleed off donations. Those donations would otherwise go to the gatherers of leveraged, law-changing spoiler votes. FEE, the Foundation for Economic Education fits the profile for one of these panhandlers.

Robin Koerner is a British-born recent convert to the USA. Like McAfee, a likable noob to whom the LP “owed” the nomination the same year he joined, Koerner has “answers.” But Koerner’s pitch is based on appallingly false, misleading and irrelevant suppositions. Foremost among these is Koerner’s view that ethics, law, history, economics and politics don’t matter, but pop psychologizing by an altruist from fascist Spain does. For guidance Koerner looks to a Franco-era mystical looter to whom life “is cosmic realization of altruism” (Ortega y Gasset, 2012:73). The Libertarian Party, on the other hand, asks us to sign a disavowal of fascist-style aggression. The disavowal was written by Ayn Rand in February of 1947. (Letters of Ayn Rand p. 366) That was back when altruistic fascist and nazi collaborators in Europe were kind of scarce because so many had been hanged by their former victims!

Koerner’s is the thinking of marketing people in Dilbert cartoons. Koerner also believes grinning candidates matter–not platforms, that you should emulate whiners and that the medium is the message. Sound familiar?
The premise–at least the part dense enough to identify–confuses a likable and successful single-issue lobby like UKIP with a political party. The conclusion is Koerner’s assertion that “…psychology must be the focus of any political party that is serious about doing what it is formed to do—which is win elections.”  UKIP won because Brits finally understood that Brexit is the antonym of Anschluss! Having felt the familiar sensation of losing on their hides, Europeans now grasp the meaning of winning! Winning is ditching coercion and gaining freedom.

It takes one to know one?

Like any huckster, this one is attracted to marks, suckers, losers “despondent because 47 years says that your guy never gets elected.” The error is that the LP is not in business to support pop-psych cheerleaders or manufacture paycheck politicians. For 47 years the LP has changed hundreds of laws and policies so as to reduce the initiation of force. We WIN this progress with the law-changing clout of principled spoiler votes. We win because the looters that ignore us get beaten by looters less coercive.

In its first campaign year the LP wrote the content the Supreme Court used in Roe v Wade to kill coathanger abortion laws. Does Koerner mention this? Democrats sure as hell don’t, but Republicans and Prohibition Party hucksters immediately drew up Constitutional Amendments to overturn Roe v Wade. To them the good old days were when a mail order diaphragm was cause for ten years in prison. They are STILL writing and pushing amendments to force women into involuntary labor.

Remember the draft? Napalming children in ‘Nam? Dixiecrats bombing prayer meetings? Middle East invasions and Bush bawling for the death sentence for marijuana? All of those things felt the chill from fewer than 4000 spoiler votes and one electoral vote counted in December of 1972. Today we cast 4 MILLION such votes. Here’s what the logistics substitution curve fit looks like:

The LP is on track to earn 50% of the vote by 2075.

Fisher-Pry curves show democracy replacing monarchy as coal & oil replaced wood

Prohibitionists with 1.4% of the vote (assisted by venal and cowardly looter politicians) passed the 18th Amendment and Marxist income tax which wrecked the economy and brought the Great Depression. This is the power of spoiler votes cast in support of a principled (albeit idiotic) stand. All we need do is let voters know that the button next to the ones they’ve been pushing will speed up the rate at which violent laws are repealed so that freedom replaces coercion and prosperity replaces debt. We are not despondent. We are winning every election. All four looter parties are shrivelling. The growing LP record of vote share fits a logistical substitution curve that indicates the LP (or its policies) should have half the total votes by 2075.

Koerner’s whole message is designed to obfuscate that crucial point and lead confused customers down a blind alley. That the alley is full of muggers, pickpockets and predators is not news. The Human Rights Party–organized shortly before the LP (see top of this page)–found out the hard way. Its organizers knew nothing of the meaning of government or freedom, the nature of rights or the language of money! They are extinct, but the Libertarian Party is thriving despite the “help” of “friends” like Koerners and FEEs.

Spoilers and voters

Remember?

Jerry Garcia of the San Francisco Grateful Dead was opposed to choosing between evils. Garcia commented in 1984 that he was “as afraid of Mondale as… of Reagan” and lamented that “a third way” had nearly come about. Jerry Garcia only voted once in his life. But musicians, like movie actors, typically have no clear idea what government is or how elections work–it’s not their job. Very few people understand the law-changing clout delivered by spoiler votes.

Both Kleptocracy parties are run by platform committees made up entirely of lobbyists. These lobbyists are as clueless as rock musicians when it comes to the real purpose of a legitimate government. They simply peddle coercion to the highest bidder, and pump up the fear of similar coercion threatened by their collectivist competitors. Because the current Kleptocracy has evolved over the last 158 years to pander to the same pool of voters, its two factions have to be nearly identical–differing only in one or two crucial and potentially deliverable platform planks.

When an outside party forms to challenge the cartel, shills and tarbrushers attack by ignoring the competing platform. Instead, they name-call any individual candidates offering the American voter an opportunity to exercise integrity. “Spoilers!” they say. The truth, however, is that the lobbyists who got the Republican Party to betray the American people with coathanger abortion planks in partisan huffery against the Libertarian-written Roe v Wade decision, planks ordering men with guns to shoot our kids over plant leaves. The GOP’s Holy War bombing and invasion of Ottoman sheikdoms were guaranteed to bring hijackers flying into U.S. civilian buildings.  These platform lobbyists–not voters or candidates–are the spoilers. They have turned the Republican party into a machine for wholesale violation of individual rights and a land-mine for financial collapse. Spoiling–like shifting the blame for one’s own cupidityis an inside job.

The Democratic party, which relies heavily on altruist collectivism amounting to government in the role of surrogate parent or deity, lost badly in 2016 and barely held on in 2018. Their failure is primarily because of soiled platform declarations based on pseudoscience and Goracular documendacities. Doomsday weather nonsense is Soviet propaganda left over from 1960, happily demolished by a look at unvarnished (not GISS, which isn’t even internally consistent) weather data.

Libertarian voters in Brazil

Not voting for the communist or fascist candidate is illegal

NONE OF THE ABOVE and ABSTAINING Brazilian presidential runoff votes in 2018

When America’s prohibitionist asset-forfeiture collapse of 1987 hit South America, the situation resembled that of Germany when President Warren Harding was pronounced dead with no inquest or autopsy. Inflation went through the roof, the government collapsed and looter politicians set to work on a “new” constitution.

You can't have your cake and let your neighbor eat it too.

Paper rights inflate into worthlessness like paper money.

Droves of Brazilian voters illegally boycotted the first election under the new, book-length Constitution (14.4% abstaining and 5.82% casting blank ballots).  As collectivized “rights” inflated into worthlessness, about 2.5 million Brazilians emigrated to other countries in a massive brain-drain.

Aside from its role in writing the court decision that enforced a woman’s right to control her own reproduction, Americans hardly remembered the infiltrated and weakened Libertarian Party in 1988. But dictatorships absolutely dominated by looter ideologies recognized in the LP an existential threat to the continuity of totalitarian coercion. Borrowing from Nixon’s anti-libertarian law, politicians elsewhere began preferentially subsidizing parties that extort money at gunpoint.  With scary lessons learned from Ayn Rand’s essay on collectivized rights, male-dominated governments given to every shade of communo-fascist cleptocracy proceeded to inflate the number of looter parties empowered to suck sustenance through the government teat. And it worked!

Nationalistic socialists controlling European elections eagerly subsidize, regulate, smear and smother libertarian parties out of existence. Lateran-treaty Juntas in South America do the same, and one or two inject subsidies to inflate to over 32 the number of communist, socialist and fascist parties gobbling at the trough of Brazil’s tax revenue. That’s nearly the number of parties operated in Weimar Germany when Hitler was made Chancellor.  Since all parties are perforce tax-subsidized, the Kleptocracy says it “cannot afford” to add a non-looter party. Pretty neat, huh?

The upshot of all this is that Brazilian voting machines offer three (03) choices: communist soft machines, fascist soft machines and NONE OF THE ABOVE. These blank and spindled NO votes can realistically be counted as votes that would likely be cast in favor of Libertarian Party platform candidates, if such a thing weren’t excluded by the violence of law. The 21% turnout means 79% of eligible voters broke the mandatory voting law. In some cities, None of the Above got more votes than the winning kleptocrat. The spoiler vote fraction is what they call the taxa de alienação. Even if we ignore the no-shows, NOTA got 10% of the votes cast. That’s three times the vote percentage earned by the U.S. Libertarian Party! Here’s how they describe the national results:

O PT e TSE juntos elegeram a Junta

Green represents potential Libertarian Party votes

With the upcoming repeal of the Red Arbeiterpartei’s Kristallnacht gun laws, the suppression of libertarian voters is bound to become increasingly difficult. When coerced and subsidized election restrictions do collapse, spoiler votes will leverage the coalescing kleptocracy into repealing bad laws and deleting parasitical taxes. This, after all, is what the LP has been doing in the USA for 46 years now. Instead of electing our own politicians, we help voters defeat the worst of the opposition.

Brazilians, Colombians, Argentinos… transplants in the US can either vote or donate to the US  and Canadian Libertarian Parties, and the LP will continue to euchre politicians into repealing bad laws. How? By giving voters the opportunity to emphatically reject the socialist and nationalsocialist tendencies that have taken over the Democratic and Republican parties. These are the American parties that run the NSA and CIA that are empowered to snoop on Latin American politicians and leak damaging information to their adversaries. Many bad laws that cripple Latin American economies were exported there by America’s violent runaway Kleptocracy.
