The 2022 elections will finally be over with tomorrow. Or later in the week. Or later this month. I guess it all depends on how much counting and counting and re-counting and fraud and cheating there will be.
And politicians are wasting hundreds of millions of dollars on these election campaigns now. And for what? For power, that’s what. But it seems this fantasy about politicians doing anything for the better will continue, sadly.
Anyway, my how we have a typical selection of clowns running for public office this year, in these 2022 elections.
In Pennsylvania, we have an open seat with Uncle Festerman versus Dr. Ooz, a mask moron. Dr. Ooz promoted the face masks early on, saying nutty things like, “Your mask is a sign of love,” “They’re about being kind,” and “Wear a mask and protect the people you love.”
Meanwhile, Uncle Festerman wants to release criminal murderers from prisons, and he’s still recovering from a stroke and has no idea what he’s saying most of the time. No doubt that if he wins, the Democrats will immediately replace him with Mrs. Festerman (who also has no idea what she’s saying most of the time).
Speaking of mask morons, in Connecticut’s race for governor we have incumbent Gov. Ned Lamont Sanford versus Republican challenger Bob Stupidowski. During the scamdemic the True Believer Stupidowski went along with the panic and hysteria and got into the mask distributing crusade, to make sure that everybody had enough masks to muzzle and gag themselves to death. Promoting oxygen deprivation and self-suffocation is the way to go. I’m sure that if Stupidowski is elected he’ll probably impose another mask mandate on the sheeple of “The Constitution State” (sic). Meanwhile, Lamont will continue collecting more junk.
In Maskachusetts, Republican Gov. Charlie Half-Baker is not running for reelection, so Geoff Diehl is the R nominee and the activist attorney general Maura Healey is the D. (That’s D for “Dodo.”) I believe that like Baker, Healey wants to follow California’s lead in outlawing gasoline-fueled vehicles by 2035. So all those climate cultists out there are wackos, totally out of touch with reality, in my view.
And because Biden had shut down much of the U.S.’s oil and gas production on his first day in office, we have a much reduced energy supply, and (and for the first time in my nearly 60 years) we may actually have to have rolling blackouts in New England, like this is North Korea or some other third-world sh*thole, thanks to these climate cult morons.
I don’t know about Geoff Diehl or New Hampshire Gov. Sunununu, but were I in charge, as I wrote recently I would nullify all of Biden’s third-world fascist crap as well as the Dept. of Energy and EPA’s regulations and get the oil and gas production going again, and bring it to our cold New England.
Contrary to what the climate cultists believe, we need CO2 because vegetation needs CO2 to grow. And there are many areas of the Earth that need to be warmer so that more vegetation and agriculture can exist, to grow more food to feed more people. Right? (But sadly, many among the climate cultists don’t want to feed more people. They really believe that “there are too many people on the planet,” and they want to reduce the world’s population by 90%. That’s how crazy they are!)
Speaking of New Hampshire, the Republican challenging Democrat U.S. Sen. Haggie Hassan is “General” Don Bolduc. Both are statists and warmongers. Bolduc has said he wants to send more tax-funded weapons to Ukraine, and go “all in.” Oh yeah, Bolduc? Well why don’t YOU go there, go “all in”!
The only anti-war, non-interventionism candidate in the race is Libertarian Jeremy Kauffman.
Bolduc also had an incident recently in which at a campaign rally he accused and had arrested this libertarian guy for “assault,” I believe, even though it appears that it was Bolduc who may have assaulted, and that he’s lying about it.
In Arizona it’s too bad Libertarian Marc Victor dropped out of the race for U.S. senate and endorsed Blake Masters, the “border security” and military surveillance fascist. Not particularly libertarian, this guy.
And Arizona also has the apparent twin sister of the 2007 Miss South Carolina, Duh, versus former TV news anchor Kari Lake in the race for governor.
Now, I like Kari Lake’s bluntness and wanting to “drain the swamp,” and her recently exposing all the past Democrat “election deniers.” But like Trump, her anti-immigration stuff and wanting to build a government wall on the government border, shows a lack of understanding of what a free society actually is or should be.
In a free society, which ours is not, and contrary to what Ms. Lake and The Donald believe, people have the freedom to come and go as they please, and don’t need to get permission from a bureaucrat, as long as they don’t violate the persons or property of others.
And no, the territory as a whole is not a piece of property like private property, it is just a territory, one that consists of many parcels of private property. The territory as a whole is not owned by anyone, or owned by the U.S. “citizens,” or owned by “taxpayers.” Sadly, many people believe those collectivism-promoting myths, and thus reject the ideas of private property rights, freedom of contract and labor and employment freedom, and freedom of association. Many people, unfortunately, are authoritarians who believe that we and our “private” property are all owned by the collective or by the government in Washington. Yes, “conservatives” believe those things. (CONservatives, that is.)
And that is what “democracy” is. The collective and its authorities are the ultimate owners. We must get permission from them for this or that. And the majority gets to vote on who can do this or that, 51% of the sheeple get to tell the other 49% what to do in life or what they may or may not do with “their” property, “their” lives or “their” bodies.
I guess you had to see the TV show Sanford and Son to get the earlier reference to it. Oh, well.
Anyway, another reason why especially Republicans want to constrain freedom of movement and build a government wall on the government border is the fear of drugs and fentanyl. Actually it the war on drugs itself that is the cause of the fentanyl crisis.
Unfortunately, both the Democrat and Republican parties are for continuing the war on drugs, a failed policy for 50 or 60 years now. Only the Libertarian party wants to end it.
And both the Democrat and Republican parties are the warmonger party, while the Libertarian party has been consistently anti-war, and with good reason.
But for 50 years the Libertarian party hasn’t gained any traction. This isn’t because of weakness on their part, but because of the stranglehold that the two major parties have had on the elections process, their ballot access restrictions, and the two major parties’ enmeshment with government itself.
Democrats and Republicans have been mainly apparatchiks tied to government’s offices and bureaus and its compulsory monopolies for a century or more.
Another reason for Libertarians not getting their foot in the door is the media. Already by the 1980s the “news” media, who are also enmeshed with government and in fact are just another branch of the Regime in Washington, dismissed the Libertarian party and its principles as “extreme” or “fringe” without any consideration of ideas promoted.
In 1988 I thought that Libertarian presidential nominee Ron Paul communicated the ideas very well, but most of the government media would not cover his campaign. The fix was in, I discovered, at that time, only for Democrats and Republicans, the corrupt statists that they are.
But now the situation is even worse. We now have total retards in the “news” media, constantly dismissing people as “MAGA Republicans,” “election deniers,” “climate deniers,” and having mainly establishment hacks on their network shows for “analysis,” i.e. government propaganda and Establishment talking points. Most of these people in the media are apparatchiks, in my view, including Upchuck Todd a.k.a. Chuck Toady, George Snuffleupagus and Mothra Raditz, and Jake Tapdancer and Anderson Pooper-Scooper. They suck.
Well, I started out by making fun of some of the candidates in this week’s waste of time elections. But it looks like the conservatives and Republicans may very well get their “red wave,” unless there is the kind of massive shenanigans and vote fraud and cheating we saw two years ago.
Sadly, those right-wingers are supporting their guys and gals with blind faith, and being in denial of every time in the past that those candidates have turned into establishment statists who vote for needless destructive wars, propping up Big Pharma, voting for more Medicare welfare social spending and “infrastructure” projects bringing home the bacon, and worse.
If the Republicans regain control over CONgress they will not have any real investigations or impeachments as promised, they will not use the January 6th committee to get the real truth out there because that would expose their beloved criminal FBI, they will not expose the “vaccine” fraud and put Pfizer execs into their orange jumpsuits. I’m not holding my breath, anyway.
And also, regarding this MAGA stuff, “Make America Great Again,” which doesn’t even make any sense, unless you want a big powerful government (‘great”) in Washington, invading and occupying other countries, and that enslaves its own people to keep its power.
The territory as referenced above is just too big to be one single country. Sorry for sounding like a broken record. The territory is too big in population and too big in area, or square miles. I know, many people like “big.” But that means less freedom and less prosperity.
What we do need is decentralization. We need just to have a free society. Not necessarily a “country.” But how to get there? With elections like these? Good luck.
