Kansas Libertarians v Slavery

Forcing women into the labor of involuntary reproduction is enslavement. Pregnant women are individual persons, not Siamese twins. “All persons born…” states the constitutional beginning of personhood in the USA’s 14th Amendment. The 13th Amendment says:

Section 1
Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction.

Section 2
Congress shall have power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation.

The original (link) 1972 Libertarian Party platform contained a plank about this which read:

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

The Supreme Court was at that time struggling with a 9th Amendment 5th Circuit case in Texas, which State sought to force a woman to reproduce against her will. Meanwhile in Canada a doctor once persecuted in Europe by Positive Christian National Socialists, had opened a clinic serving women in Quebec.(link) Dr Henry Morgentaler was charged with offences in 1970–before the Libertarian party was organized in Colorado.

Pro-choice, pro-defense LP Happytalism earned maybe 4000 votes but also got one electoral vote in the November elections, which made us impossible to ignore when the real votes were counted in January 1973.

Sixteen days after the Electoral votes were counted, the Supreme Court decision of 22JAN1973 began with (a) For the stage prior to approximately the end of the first trimester, the abortion decision and its effectuation must be left to the medical judgment of the pregnant woman’s attending physician.(link)

Jurors in Canada agreed with the U.S. Supreme Court and acquitted Dr Morgentaler in 1974. As in Roe, weaponized mysticism sought again to put the doctor in jail, and again the jury preferred medicine to girl-bullying superstition and monstrous teratophilia. That and another election ended the matter so that there are NO girl-bullying laws to threaten doctors in Canada. Comstockists, race-suicide collectivists and persons addled by belief in devils and invisible pals still seek to send men with guns out to force women against their will.(link)

But this was true in the 1840s, when Harriet Beecher Stowe told of how slave women had no defense against rapists nor got to keep their children–as in Texas today, thanks to the gradual, stepwise, cowardly betrayal of women’s rights by committees.

Stowe revealed how God’s Self-appointed Ministers and Elders cowered and shied away from defending the individual rights of all women in 1843:

“Whereas there is in this Assembly great diversity of opinion as to the proper and best mode of action on the subject of slavery; and whereas, in such circumstances, any expression of sentiment would carry with it but little weight, as it would be passed by a small majority, and must operate to produce alienation and division; and whereas the Assembly of 1839, with great unanimity, referred this whole subject to the lower judicatories, to take such order as in their judgment might be adapted to remove the evil;–Resolved, That the Assembly do not think it for the edification of the church for this body to take any action on the subject.” (link)

In other words, God’s mystics adopted a cowardly straddle and betrayed freedom and rights to appease alienation and division as reported in Stowe’s Tale of the Great Dismal Swamp. The Libertarian party was gaining new voters at the rate of 12% per year from 1972 to 1980, when pressure from infiltrating Swamp Republicans changed the platform to single out pregnant women women for discrimination:

“We oppose any compulsory insurance or tax-supported plan to provide health services, including those which finance abortion services.” Women began crossing the street to avoid Libertarian candidates.

Soon the LP platform changed to this:

“Recognizing that abortion is a sensitive issue and that people can hold good-faith views on all sides, we believe that government should be kept out of the matter, leaving the question to each person for their conscientious consideration.” The LP vote share became a horizontal line from 1980 until Gary Johnson’s pro-choice campaign in 2016, when we more than tripled to 4 million votes with 13 spoiler clout states.

The post-Anschluss national Tea-bertarian party has smothered, omitted, elided, memory-holed all platform utterances to the effect that pregnant women have individual rights.

Just now, only the Kansas Libertarian Party has shown the integrity, consistency and backbone it takes to stand up to the mentality that–before the American Revolution–burned women at the stake to please God, Jesus, Allah and Mohammed. Remember that when you are ready to donate to support a worthy Libertarian organization.(link)

Good bad books: The Economic Waste of Sin, by Lahman Forrest Bower. The Abdingon Press, Cincinnati, 1924. That was the year of the KKKlambakes, the Democratic Party endorsing the Prohibition law President Wilson vetoed, and the party platform plank suddenly recognizing a side effect of prohibition:
“Recognizing in narcotic addiction, especially the spreading of heroin addiction among the youth, a grave peril to America and to the human race, we pledge ourselves vigorously to take against it all legitimate and proper measures for education, for control and for suppression at home and abroad.” Bower believed beer was a gateway drug that led inexorably to heroin–NOT heroin as an easily-concealed replacement for Beelzebub’s banned beer!

Will Rogers never met Biden

No comment needed…

MELLON’S MELON WASTED Will Rogers Gloomy As to Fate of Treasury Surplus. BEVERLY HILLS, California, July 3 – Mr. Mellon has skimped and saved and got together 185 millions over and above what Congress nicked him for. Now they are all arguing over what to do with it, but nobody has ever suggested applying it on our national debt, which is over 30 billion. Sixty percent of all our taxes go toward interest on all our various debts, national, state, town and county. But they will take this little dab and try to buy some party votes with it in the way of lower taxes. You wouldn’t see Mellon doing that if it applied to his personal affairs. He would get his debt paid off before he started handling anybody’s anything. But that’s just why so many of our individuals are so much richer than our government. Yours, WILL ROGERS (The Spokesman-Review 04JUL1929 1) (link)

No this is not a scholarly tome with footnotes sprinkled everywhere, but more of a fun read in a sort of pulp fiction noir vernacular.

Shooter Gender Discrimination

Stalkers, multiple shooters, 97% male

The new Austrian Teabertarian party has an opportunity to right a wrong. Libertarians formerly repealed laws declaring some women to be non-individuals,(link) roughly equivalent to “other persons” in Constitutional language or “former persons” in Soviet Socialist usage.(link) But that language was dropped from the platform. However, the recently added “We oppose the administration of the death penalty by the state” is clearly a bid to stop the hanging and electrocution of communist and fascist anarchists convicted of murder, and/or to legalize the hunting of humans as trophy game. That stayed in!

Tatsuya Ishida Sinfest art.(link)

Murder is a hot topic among girl-bulliers, so much so that Texas–the first State to take up arms against the Union and the last to stop hunting down fugitive slaves–has relegalized the payment of bounties for hunting down women suspected of seeking to escape the involuntary labor of forced reproduction.(link) The Mystical Supreme Court majority seems inclined to view this as neither a bill of attainder nor a violation of the 14th or 9th Amendment. The Supreme Court already declared the hunting down of males of reproductive age as involuntary killers and cannon-fodder in foreign wars NOT a violation of the antislavery Amendment.(link) There is precedent for Supreme-court-approved gender discrimination and naked coercion, just like in the days of Dred.(link)

Only the Democratic party still regards pregnant women as rights-holding individuals, yet is troubled by extrajudicial collective shootings–especially in government schools–and 97.5% of the shooters are guys. There is open talk of “scheduling” unhinged whack jobs like Missouri Republican Senate candidate Eric Greitens (link) into the class of “other persons” denied gun rights before Lincoln’s version of the Emancipation Proclamation made them into armed voters.(link) In this heated atmosphere, a modest proposal comes to mind…

How about a Roe v Berserker law banning state governments from infringing the right of the women to keep and bear arms. By arms I mean fully-automatic, extended-clip handguns with laser aiming, mace sprays enriched with dyes, odorants, sarin or bio-weapons, body armor, attack dogs and carte blanche to assign qualified immunity reprisal rights to bodyguards so even successful assailants are readily dispatched. This would also cover adolescent girls in and out of school. Those kind of Second-Amendment-with-teeth laws could easily do away with school shooters AND those girl-bullying rednecks with green teeth chasing women across state lines.(link)

Feats With Your Vote

Anarcho-fascist planks alienate mainstream voters

Eric Boehm in a recent Reason magazine article produced a graph trying to put the best face on voter reaction to the anarchist burdening Jo Jorgensen’s otherwise-libertarian campaign. That ticket came in dead last in libertarian-friendly Travis County, Austin Texas. (link) That’s where Roe v Wade was fought and won thanks to the first Libertarian Platform.(link) Wasted votes are the ones that help the Kleptocracy bully women and rob the innocent. Libertarian spoiler votes perform feats: ending the draft, legalizing birth control, reversing the growth of bureaucracy, halting entanglements in deadly foreign violence, rolling back cruel prohibition laws, asset-forfeiture looting and systemic police abuse. That’s clout! That’s WINNING!

anarcho-suicide
Absolute last place in Travis County/Austin TX thanks to Jeremy

But Eric graphed a column showing how the LP ranked in the battle for popular votes where we took third-party place in 2020 even after losing ballot access and wiping out our 328% gain over 2012.(link) Being the real third party is no small matter, because third parties armed with under 3% of the popular vote are the ones that–throughout American history–have written and repealed the law of the land.

First among rabble while losing ballot access and 8 years of gain is poor showing

The way we change laws, however, is by bleeding the looter Kleptocracy of votes, not by absorbing some pathetic anarcho-Socialist rabble’s rounding-error-from-zero vote total. Voters are convinced those flash-in-the-pan parties can be safely ignored. Ranking outcomes by percentage of ideological third party vote puts the LP in third place with anywhere from 0.3 to 3.3% of the vote–a loose fit indeed. But the history of spoiler vote clout shows us the law-changing spoiler effect kicks in at about 1.4% of the popular vote.(link)

Fewer words, more loyal voters!

Those fringe parties, like The Kleptocracy, want the LP to keep planks promising child molesting, uninspected entry of enemy aliens and plague vectors–even executions by vigilantes–such as were added before the 2020 debacle. Observe that the LP only became THE clout-wielding third party after the 2008 “revolt” that deleted a bunch of idiotic platform verbiage. Kleptocracy party platforms each take about 5 hours to read. The LP platform can be recorded in a 30 minute podcast in many languages. Omitting needless words–perhaps even deleting words to make room for new planks could yield balanced verbiage and a platform attractive to voters sick of shrill, grasping extremism.

Original Libertarian Party Platform

Including the plank to repeal laws banning abortion

STATEMENT OF PRINCIPLES

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

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

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

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

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

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

INDIVIDUAL RIGHTS AND CIVIL ORDER

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

Crime

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

Due Process for Criminally Accused

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

Freedom of Speech and The Press

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

Protection of Privacy

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

The Right to Keep and Bear Arms

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

Volunteer Army

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

Property Rights

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

Unions and Collective Bargaining

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

TRADE AND THE ECONOMY

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

Money

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

The Economy

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

(a) reduction of both taxes and government spending;

(b) an end to deficit budgets;

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

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

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

Subsidies

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

Tariffs and Quotas

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

Interim Reforms

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

Long-Range Goals

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

DOMESTIC ILLS

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

Pollution

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

Consumer Protection

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

Overpopulation

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

Education

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

Poverty and Unemployment

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

FOREIGN POLICY

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

ECONOMIC

Foreign Aid

We support an end to the Federal foreign aid program.

Ownership in Unclaimed Property

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

Currency Exchange Rates

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

MILITARY

Military Alliances

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

Military Capability

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

DIPLOMATIC

Diplomatic Recognition

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

Secession

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

The United Nations

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

Ominous GOP Parallels

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

We’re your friends!

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

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

God’s Own Dictator!

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

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

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

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

Election Odds, Then and Now

Then…

Now… at same Paddypower betting website (link)

Biden’s odds a week out are worse than Hillary’s 4 years earlier. Republicans in Swing or Red States ought to vote for Jo Jorgensen, Libertarian. Jo’s odds skunk the Econazi and Coathanger Birth Control parties’ odds for clout-packing spoiler vote leverage. A Libertarian spoiler vote is guaranteed to make the looter kleptocracy reexamine their policies and planks and repeal cruel laws. This means YOU, the voter, win the election because YOUR vote packed about 2 dozen times the law-changing clout. What else could possibly mean that YOU won in the election?

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

Make your vote MATTER for a change! Listen to what our opponents say about each other and remember all that on election day.

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.

Repeal Victimless Usurpations

 

If either Kleptocracy party wants to “win,” its platform should include repeal, decriminalize and expunge. Tarl tells it like it is, but leaves out the relative law-changing clout of Libertarian spoiler versus Kleptocracy bootlicking votes.(link)

Remember Jerome Tuccille? He was a Libertarian candidate back about 1976, and wrote “It Usually Begins with Ayn Rand,” which I recommend.(link) He also wrote a Trump bio I haven’t read. But the important thing was the lesson he learned as a candidate. Every vote cost $6 in campaign spending at that time. Converting to current dollars, all else held constant, today’s votes would cost $36 apiece in 2020 dollars. 

It's a hard rain...

Spoiler vote replacement effect

So if I were to waste a vote on the Dem or GOP platform promises, that 0.00000007% of the vote total would accrue to the benefit of one or the other looter party as $36 worth. But the Libertarian party vote growth rate in 2016 was increasing at a slope of 1.2, which is an angle of 50 degrees, accelerating rapidly. This rapid growth imparts extra law-changing heft to each libertarian vote–heft that does not require that our candidates be sworn in

But Libertarian candidates did win 73 races last year, a palpable drain of money away from Kleptocracy coffers and an enormous decrease in their effective social pressure.(link) Their party mathematicians are painfully aware of these facts–especially the fact that when the LP.org vote share is larger than the difference between their “winner” and “loser,” the probability projections for their loot, pelf and boodle go out the window. Libertarian spoiler votes pack roughly 20x the law-changing clout of bootlicking Kleptocracy votes. So on average, LP spoiler votes are worth $720 apiece. If you instead vote Kleptocracy you are throwing away $684 worth of vote clout!

 

Nixon almost lost when girl-bullying racial collectivists handed George Wallace the electoral votes for four Dixiecrat States. Wallace, like JFK, was quickly riddled with bullets, which was the equivalent of a Chappaquiddick incident for nomination purposes.(link) The GOP absorbed the Klan and broke up the Solid South. On their third confrontation with the Libertarian Party–whose 1972 plank was rewritten as the Roe v Wade decision, Dems in 1980 plunked for subsidized birth control (link) rather than the Libertarian solution of deregulating the medical cartel. Their open borders preference for flowers and granola to repel Soviet nuclear attacks did them in.

NOW the Dems and God’s Own Prohibitionists(link) are realizing how spoiler votes change election outcomes, and whining lest your vote benefit YOUR FREEDOM rather than some looter politician’s hand in your pocket! Ain’t that something? Listen to what the looter parties say about each other and remember all that on election day!

Withholding sex?

Racial collectivism AND shooting your kids?

No thanks. We’re with Jo Jorgensen, why? 

She's with Us!

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.
