School Shootings, and More Reasons to Abolish Government Police

We are now hearing more about the school shooting in Uvalde, Texas this week. It appears that the police waited outside the school while apparently the shooter was inside having barricaded himself in a classroom where he killed the little children.

Why wouldn’t the police go into the school building? Why did they have to form a “perimeter” outside? So, we know that they should have gone into the building at least in the hallway outside the classroom where the shooter was. Were they given an order to “stand down” by superiors? (Like the police in many of those 2020 BLM riots, looting, arson and burning down buildings, and other previous riots.)

And we are now hearing that parents who had rushed to the school were telling the police to go in, and some parents were trying to go in themselves to save their kids. I guess parents have more guts than government police when it comes to saving kids. One mother was able to get in and take her kid out to safety. Another parent, however, was TASERED by the government police and still other parents were actually handcuffed!

Talk about nazis. No wonder they call them “pigs.” Another good reason to abolish and de-monopolize government-monopolized community policing and security, as I wrote in this article.

And did you see some of the photos of the shooter? He had this kind of feminine-like sucking face, and a spooky resemblance to Elliot Rodger the Santa Barbara college shooter. I wrote about Rodger and Sandy Hook shooter Adam Lanza here and here. Yes, psychiatric drugs did play a role in those other shootings, as did video games (more the non-violent ones) and a general dysfunctional life. Oh, well.

And on talk radio, those “conservatives” are obsessed with police, with putting more police in the schools (or, as the nudnik Sean Hannity constantly says, “former police and military”). No, we don’t need ANY police in the schools! All they will do is arrest and handcuff little kids for “acting up” or for making a finger gesture like a gun and saying, “bang, bang!” and the government police otherwise assault the little kids. John Whitehead at the Rutherford Institute has written about those things many times now in his great articles.

No, rather than police, as I recently mentioned, just let teachers and staff be armed if they want to. (And let kids be armed as well, as long as they are trained with firearms, like in the old days.) I know, to some brainwashed sheeple, that sounds absurd. Things have changed since decades ago when that didn’t sound absurd at all, as society has further decayed and continues to decay.

And repeal all the “gun-free zone” laws!

If at least a teacher or staff member had been armed there at the school, he or she could have taken out the shooter early on, saving many lives! WHY don’t the so-called “conservative” talk radio personalities mention that? But no, they are obsessed with their love, the police, and they love the police state as well.

And the Democrats and leftists really just want to disarm law-abiding citizens and make them defenseless. They are a part of some sort of demonic, satanic cult, I am now convinced of that.

The Democrats and leftists side with criminals, we know that’s the case. They get rid of bail and let arrested violent thugs go right back out to hurt more people. They have bail funds like Kommie-la Harris did with the 2020 rioters, arsonists, looters and thugs. And contrary to their grandstanding, Democrats and leftists do not want to protect children. We know that as a fact in their not just pro-abortion fanaticism, but pro-“abortion” after the baby is born. They are pro-aggression, they don’t want people to defend themselves against aggressors, they believe in violence, they want civilians to be disarmed, unarmed and defenseless, and they want only military and police to have guns. How did that work out for the Jews in Germany? And for people in Mao’s China? Hmmm.

Libertarianism Is the Best Alternative to the Democrats and Republicans

Laurence Vance at the Future of Freedom Foundation presents the “Libertarian Brand,” clarifying some confusion about libertarianism that many people unfortunately have. Not necessarily the Libertarian Party but libertarianism in general. This terrific article also includes summaries of the Democrat and Republican parties and their brands, and why libertarianism is the way to have a free society.

Secession, Withdrawing Consent, Restoring Freedom

Southern Catholic Mom has this article urging people to uncleave. That is, to uncleave from:

those who worship the Covid religion, the “mandate” religions, the face masking and face covering religions, the jab-or-job religions. the BLM religion, the blood-libel-against-White-people religions, the snuffing in assisted living and hospitals religions, the kinky and degenerate religions (LGBTQ?, drag-queen story hour librarians, child-sex propagandists everywhere),  the gardening and self-sufficient hating religions, the government schools loving religions, the war-loving religions, the cop and soldier worshipping religions, the government and government employees worshipping religions, and all other human-hating religions

And she goes on about the government schools, although private schools as well. And other aspects of how our society has been corrupted by government and the collectivist mindset. “Let us begin our secession, withdraw our consent…” Yep.

And for several years there has been this movement to get liberty lovers to move to New Hampshire. Although sadly there have been “liberal” refugees from Massachusetts and other blue states who have moved to NH and bringing with them the same policies from which they have been fleeing in their blue states. The current U.S. senators from NH, for instance, are the awful Maggie Hassan and Jeanne Shaheen, both Democrats. Who would vote for them?

But there is hope for New Hampshire. The twitter user “Move to NH,” @NHpilled, has this thread on some of the pro-freedom bills that have been passed in the NH House and headed on to the Senate. If passed in the upper chamber, let’s hope that Gov. Chris Sununu signs them all into law.

I’ll post the initial tweet and if you want to look at all the subsequent tweets which list all the accomplishments you can click on the tweet and do that. But I will quote some of them here.

If the tweet doesn’t show up here, this is the link to it.

Here are just some of @NHpilled’s examples of House-passed pro-freedom bills:

“HB1178 prohibits state and local law enforcement from enforcing certain federal firearms laws.”

“HB1636 extends constitutional carry to OHRVs, the main area that was overlooked in the historic CC bill passed in 2017!”

“HB1668 was defeated which would have required background checks for all gun sales including private sales between individuals and noncommercial sales (i.e. gifts). Background checks continue to be optional in the Live Free or Die state!”

“HB1431 creates a “Parental bill of rights” which allows parents to opt out of sexual and gender curriculum in schools, direct the moral and religious upbringing of their children, the right to access and review all school records of their child, and much more!” (I’ll bet that Southern Catholic Mom would especially like this one!)

“HB1280 bans a parent’s refusal to vaccinate a child as a reason to terminate parental rights.”

“HB1131 Prohibits mask mandates in government (public) schools.”

“HB1455- state nullification of federal vaccine mandates. In other words, the state will not assist or collaborate with the federal government to enforce federal vaccine mandates.”

“HB1022 legalizes the sale of Ivermectin by pharmacies.”

“HB1330 eliminates licensing requirements for medical technicians.”

“HB 1495-explicitly prohibits the state from requiring businesses to require vaccine documentation or documentation related to vaccination or immunity status.”

“HB 1606 making the state vaccine registry an opt-in program.” (Why does a “state vaccine registry” even exist?)

“HB1097 provides that all income received by NH residents physically performed in NH shall not be subject to taxation as earned income in any other state. Making this a tax sanctuary state for those that work virtually.”

“HB 1425 expands the protections for the taking of real property by eminent domain.”

“HB1221 reduces the Business Profits Tax rate, effectively reducing taxes by $8 million annually.”

“HB 1171 exempts niche beauty services (such as hair braiding) from occupational and shop license requirements.”

And “HB1282 requires law enforcement to obtain a warrant before receiving customer information from common carriers.”

Wow!

Collectivism, Nationalism and Centralization Are Not Compatible with a Free Society

Rethuglican Sen. Willard Romney, the lone Rethug who voted to keep masking and stifling little kids as young as 2 and for no good reason, has decided to call former Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard a “treasonous liar” in her discussions of U.S. funded bio labs in Ukraine. Frankly I think Romney is treasonous in his vote for government-imposed child abuse of little kids. Pierre Delecto is scum.

And why is it that so many of today’s “liberals,” really not liberal but just leftists, are the warmongers of today? They want the U.S. government and military to get involved in the Russia-Ukraine war. I think one reason for such idiocy is the long-lasting Trump Derangement Syndrome they suffer, because many of them are brainwashed to believe that Trump colluded with Russia and Putin to steal the 2016 election, regardless of how debunked all those claims have been.

But many “conservatives” are just as bad in the warmongering. Like the leftists, the “conservatives” or neocons or “hawks” don’t mind the thought of having World War III and nuclear war.

I think that much of the responsibility in the irrationality of today belongs to the government schools. Education shouldn’t be run or controlled by the government. We are suffering from the disaster of government schools, euphemistically known as “public schools.” See Murray Rothbard on the education issue. We need to de-monopolize education away from government control, as well as de-monopolize everything else.

The society is collapsing before our very eyes because the majority of the population have been indoctrinated to believe whatever the government tells them, hook, line and sinker. Generations of people are indoctrinated to be non-independent thinking robots, obedient slaves of centralized regimes, federal, state and local.

Besides the Russia-Ukraine issue, another example that I have seen recently of how people don’t think or pay attention and just react emotionally to situations is in New Hampshire. A bill to put a question on the ballot for NH to secede from the “union” sunk like a rock.

This post shows tweets by some of the NH state representatives who clearly believed the bill was a vote to secede from the “union,” when it was a bill to just put the question on the ballot. Now, some of the representatives understood what the bill was, but they really believed that it was dangerous to let the commoners, or the riffraff as some of them see us, have a say as to whether or not become independent.

Why, how dare we. Even though the American Revolutionaries became independent from the British regime. They seceded.

Democrat state senators Lou D’Allesandro and Cindy Rosenwald tweeted that the House just voted to “secede from the United States.” No, you couple of morons, they voted whether or not to put the question on the ballot to let the citizens vote on the question!

Rep. David Meuse tweeted, “When they’re not attacking public health, teachers, local control, union members, voting rights and working people—some NH Republicans think it’s a good idea to attack America instead.”

“Attack America”? Look who’s attacking America, the one who opposes letting the people vote on an issue! And Rep. Manny Espitia tweeted, “These 13 Representatives should be ashamed of themselves. Their vote to secede from the United States of America is disgraceful.”

So, Manny not only shows his ignorance of what a bill actually proposes, he calls people who believe in independence “disgraceful.”

And this is New Hampshire, everybody. The “Live Free Or Die” state.

Several others quoted in that Free State blog use words like, “traitors,” “Batsh*t insane GOPers,” “right wing crazy group,” and so on.

So this is a result of our government-run and government-monopolized education system. No wonder more informed and rational people want to secede!

These people really need to read the Declaration of Independence, which reads in part, “But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security. — Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government.”

And the Declaration goes on to list the abuses of the King. In today’s context, it can refer to the abuses of the U.S. regime in Washington. The IRS goes after conservatives and Tea Partiers, the IRS and Congress steal from the workers yet bureaucrats live high off the hog on the stolen workers’ earnings, the CIA provokes foreigners to make Americans less safe, the NSA spies on Americans without suspicion and due process, the FBI concocts “terrorist plots” so the FBI can thwart their own plots that they concoct, the FBI makes up conspiracies to kidnap governors to frame or entrap people, the FBI instigates Capitol riots and “insurrections” and then persecute those who attended a rally and puts innocent people in solitary confinement without charges, etc., etc., etc. What’s not to like about these people?

Speaking of the FBI instigating Capitol riots, I’m sure the people opposing letting citizens vote on secession and/or opposing secession itself would approve of FBI going after people who attended a Trump rally and having the rally attendees’ own teenage kids spy on them on behalf of the FBI.

As far as “treasonous” “traitors,” Romney should talk, given he imposed his RomneyCare on the people of Massachusetts just so he could use it as an “accomplishment” in his failed run for President.

And there are people who are brainwashed and believe that Americans must be loyal to the regime in Washington, like we have some sort of obligation as citizens. So if we criticize gubmint policies we are “traitors,” as we’re hearing from people who oppose Biden’s warmongering.

Sorry, fascists. It’s the government and its bureaucrats and senators who are obligated to be loyal to the people! The bureaucrats are the ones who swear an oath to support and defend the Constitution, which includes the Bill of Rights. It is the employees of government who are obligated to be loyal to the people, not the other way around!

Unfortunately, the trend now is toward an authoritarian reversal of the Constitutional definition of treason, to now refer to when citizens show disloyalty to the government or to its bureaucrats. If you criticize the regime you are a traitor, according to the new authoritarians.

And as far as secession and decentralization, ALL the states should secede and become separate independent “nation-states,” and that is the only way to preserve and protect the society as a free society. And then, of course, each state can further decentralize, all the cities and towns and so on. And most of the functions of society that are currently seized and usurped by government fascists can be handled locally, privately and voluntarily. No stealing, no compulsion or coercion by a monopolist fascist.

So, why exactly doesn’t our current collectivist centralization of power and dependence on Washington work if we want this to be a free society?

Because first of all the territory is just too big. Hundreds of thousands of square miles. And also too many people. The population of 330,000,000 is just too big to all be one single country or one single political unit. It’s like trying to fit a square peg into a round hole.

Anyway, if you haven’t already learned the hard way by now, government is crap. It just is. And bureaucrats are scum. That’s just the way they are.

So to conclude, the nationalism and collectivism that has been going on mainly by the millions of obedient products of government schools, and the way the society is structured and centralized with government-monopolized functions, are not compatible with a free society.

The States Should Drill for Oil Anyway

When Donald Trump was President he had authorized the expansion of oil drilling in the U.S. which led to the U.S. becoming energy independent for the first time in a long time. And then Biden came along and reversed all that and put the U.S. back into dependence on foreign oil once again.

And now we have another energy crisis, thanks to Biden.

What needs to be done is that the U.S. states need to nullify federal energy related edicts and seize federally owned land and resume the energy exploration and drilling to once again make the U.S. energy independent. Tell the federal government, and Biden, to go to Hell. They suck.

This legitimate power that the states have is enshrined in the Tenth Amendment to the U.S. constitution. In fact, the land ownership that the feds have is itself illegitimate.

The people of the states need to do what’s right to resume their productivity and prosperity as well as their freedom and independence. Besides telling the feds and Biden to go to Hell, they also need to tell the environmentalist wackos to go to Hell, too. And yes, they are wackos, brainwashed to believe unscientifically backed myths about “climate change” and that “we’re doomed in 12 years.”

In fact, someone in the news recently said that continuing global warming will increase worldwide poverty and starvation. However, we should want areas of the planet to get warmer, such as those freezing icy areas, because the warmer those areas are the more vegetation and agriculture you will have. And thus the more food that can be grown and the more people that can be fed.

Invasion of Ukraine, NATO, and the Dangers of Centralization

Is all that stuff about Russia invading Ukraine still going on? I think the dementia sufferer in the White House may have mentioned it in his speech a few nights ago. By the way, Biden didn’t say “Iranians” when he meant to say “Ukrainians.” He said, “Uranians.” He’s very concerned about the inhabitants of Uranus. (And Neptune as well.)

But seriously, there really is a very good solution to these world conflicts, especially the one in Russia-Ukraine that the U.S. government and its neocon interventionists have provoked.

Ron Paul writes that NATO itself is a main contributor to the conflicts going on overseas right now with Russia and Ukraine. He says “NATO should be disbanded, not expanded.”

And Paul provides some good quotes form Sen. Robert Taft from the very early days when government collectivists were unnecessarily building and empowering NATO. Taft said that the new NATO alliance would be a military alliance against Russia, and that “such an alliance is more likely to produce war than peace.” Taft preferred peace, as do I.

See Daniel McAdams on the Ukraine propaganda wars. And Edward Curtin thinks that the globalist elites are itching to have a global war that would involve nuclear weapons. The globalists seem to love death and destruction.

So NATO and large centralized governments are the love of collectivists who have delusions of grandiosity, in my view. And I think the way to resolve many conflicts is to decentralize society.

U.S. gubmint and Russian bureaucrats, that is, the ruling political class, love centralization and expansion of their power. They don’t want a free society based on individualism and private property and free markets. They love control.

As Hans-Hermann Hoppe has stated, such as in this speech and this interview, “In general, the smaller a country and its internal markets the more likely it is that it will opt for free trade. I think that a world consisting of tens of thousands of distinct countries, regions and cantons, and hundreds of thousands of independent free cities…would be a world of unprecedented prosperity, economic growth, and cultural advancement…Switzerland and Albania are both small countries, while the U.S. and the former Soviet Union are large. However, there is a highly important indirect relationship. Smallness contributes to moderation. In principle, all governments are counterproductive in taxing and regulating private property owners and market income earners. A small government, however, has many close neighbours. If it taxes and regulates its own subjects visibly more than its neighbours it is bound to suffer because people will “vote with their feet”: they will leave to live and work elsewhere. And they need not go far to do so.”

And in addition to “taxing and regulating,” we can add violating the people’s civil liberties and property with thousands of bureaucratic laws, prohibitions and mandates that characterize oppressive police-state governments.

You might be interested in reading Hoppe’s great book, Democracy, the God That Failed. it’s very informative.

What the Flag-Waving Truckers Might Be Missing

This video was linked to by Freedom’s Phoenix. I’m not familiar with this guy, Urban Farmer Curtis Stone, but this is an important message that people need to hear. He points to the flag-waving truckers in Canada and asks, Why are you waving that flag? He notes that the flag represents the corporate nation-state and when you wave or wear its flag you are acknowledging your subjugation to the nation-state. Gary Barnett on LewRockwell.com makes some similar important points. Curtis says the system we have now is dying and that the rulers want you to hang on so it can take you down with it. Instead, build a new system.

Are Libertarian Voters “Imbeciles”?

Last week on the “Clay and Buck Show” one of them said that people are “imbeciles” if they vote for Libertarian Party candidates this year. I think it was Thursday February 3rd during the 2nd or 3rd hour of their show.

And they’re saying the usual, “There’s so much at stake” with the November elections. You would have to vote for Republicans, especially this time around!

Riiiight. We should all vote for … the “Stupid Party.”

Like all those past times when the Republicans won victories and had majorities, 1994, 2000, 2010, 2014?

As Murray Rothbard observed,

…first, left-liberals, in power, make a Great Leap Forward toward collectivism; then, when, in the course of the political cycle, four or eight years later, conservatives come to power, they of course are horrified at the very idea of repealing anything; they simply slow down the rate of growth of statism, consolidating the previous gains of the Left, and providing a bit of R&R for the next liberal Great Leap Forward….

For instance, after the dreaded Jimmy Carter, in 1980 Reagan won the election by a landslide. And what did Reagan do?

Yes, in his first year as President, Reagan cut taxes. Sort of. And then in his second year he signed a very large tax increase bill that also added new regulations. The 1982 “Tax Equity” bill actually rescinded some of the tax cuts that would have occurred that were provided by the previous “tax cuts” bill.

As Sheldon Richman pointed out, regarding Reagan’s tax hikes and deceptions, the Reagan administration “imposed withholding on interest and dividends,” raised the gas tax, raised Social Security taxes, “shifted $120 billion over five years from visible personal income taxes to hidden business taxes. It lowered the rates, but it also repealed or reduced many deductions.”

Again, Mr. Libertarian, Murray Rothbard on Ronald Reagan’s “eight dreary, miserable, mind-numbing years” as President:

Reagan not only increased government spending by an enormous amount – so enormous that it would take a 40 percent cut to bring us back to Carter’s wild spending totals of 1980 – he even substantially increased the percentage of government spending to GNP. That’s a “revolution”?

Then when campaigning for President, Reagan’s VP George H.W. Bush promised, “No New Taxes,” and after Bush was elected in 1988 he raised taxes.

Then in 1991 warmonger Bush the elder started the first war in Iraq for no good reason, his U.S. military bombed and destroyed Iraqi civilian water and sewage treatment centers, and he imposed sanctions and no-fly zones on the Iraqis which caused them to have to use untreated water which led to the deaths of hundreds of thousands of innocent Iraqi civilians by the mid-1990s, and hundreds of thousands more by the year 2000. There wouldn’t have been a 9/11 had the U.S. government and military not started those aggressions abroad. 9/11 was blowback.

And what was Bush the younger’s response to 9/11? More wars, more interventions, more invasions overseas. Statists never learn, unfortunately.

And after 9/11 the Republicans (aided and abetted by Democrats of course) gave us the Patriot Act, which set the table for persecuting and imprisoning dissenters and critics of the regime in Washington.

In their hysterical response to 9/11, Republicans gave us the DHS, TSA, Gitmo, the NDAA power to indefinitely detain Americans for any reason without charges or any due process whatsoever. (Note the experiences of those January 6th participants being persecuted and detained, which I warned over ten years ago would happen.)

Thanks, Republicans. The alternative in 1988 was Libertarian Party candidate Ron Paul, who would have ended foreign interventionism and closed down the foreign U.S. military bases located where they don’t belong, and brought the U.S. troops back to the U.S.

Ron Paul wouldn’t have started a war against Iraq in 1991 as Bush the elder did, obviously.

Ron Paul ran for President as a Republican in 2008, suggesting we apply the Golden Rule to U.S. foreign policy, which received “Booos” from the neanderthals in that debate audience.

Paul ran again in 2012. That last campaign was one in which Herman Cain gave his “9-9-9” plan: a 9% flat tax on individuals, 9% flat tax on businesses, and 9% consumption tax. Ron Paul’s response? “0-0-0.” Why? Because it’s immoral to steal, and government taxation is stealing.

As Murray Rothbard would say, taxation is theft. Taxation is theft because it is involuntary, and not based on a voluntary contract.

Unlike Republicans, the libertarian view is to repeal all forms of involuntary, coerced and compelled taxation-thefts and let people keep and do whatever they want with everything they earn or honestly acquire. Is that imbecilic? I think that Republicans’ love of the evil IRS is imbecilic.

Laurence Vance has many terrific articles online on tax policy. As Vance says, there is not much difference between most Republicans in Congress and the Bernie Sanders socialists. Vance explains the Republicans’ cluelessness on taxes, their love of government control of healthcare, and their low ranking in the Freedom Index. In 2013 Vance detailed the Republicans’ bloated budgets and their lies.

In 2018 after Republicans lost their majority in the House, Vance discussed what the Republicans could have done when they had majorities. Vance also noted how the Republicans make America socialist again, and tells us who the efficiency experts for the welfare state are: Republicans and conservatives, of course.

Perhaps instead of calling Libertarian voters “imbeciles,” talk radio conservatives might want to take a realistic view of what Republicans are and what they actually do.

And then the shyster Donald Trump came along. Oy vey.

Donald Trump’s cutting taxes and deregulation were great for the economy in the short term. The corporate tax cuts were made permanent, but the individual tax cuts were made to be only temporary. They will all have expired by 2025. So that was a shell game, in my view, a total scam. in which “Trump tax cuts” are really tax INCREASES! And in his refusal to cut spending in any meaningful way, Trump made skyrocketing budget deficits and the national debt even worse.

And Trump’s response to Covid was horrible. Despite his promising to “Drain the Swamp,” Trump’s deference to the Swamp Creatures in Covid encouraged the lockdown-mask-house-arrest fascism that occurred throughout the country. He knew he should have fired the very Swampy Dr. Fauci and Dr. Birx. And Trump himself knew early on that Covid was mainly a cold or flu with a very low fatality rate. In fact, Fauci knew early on that Covid-19 would have a flu-like fatality rate!

Then Trump pushes “Operation Warp Speed” to rush experimental deadly “vaccines” that are not vaccines but gene therapy drug treatments, in which the injected nevertheless get infected with Covid and continue spreading the virus onto others. More recently Trump boasted of getting “boosted” with that crap. He might as well say, “We are all shills for Big Pharma now.”

And Trump fraudulently presented himself as the one to “Drain the Swamp,” which was the main reason why the establishment, the leftists, academia, corporate media, and the national security statists hated him and tried to impeach him on made-up charges, why Covid was exploited to incite fear and panic toward imposing mail-in cheating to steal the 2020 election, and why the FBI Gestapo instigated the “insurrection” to frame him.

But Trump did not “drain the Swamp.” He had four years to drain the Swamp, and what did he do? His whole administration was a police lineup of Swamp Creatures, police statists, national security apparatchiks, neocons, interventionists, warmongers, crony corporatists…Jeff Sessions, Bill Barr, James Comey, Chris Wray, Steve Mnuchin, Rex Tillerson, James Mattis, John Kelly, H.R. McMaster, Reince Priebus, Rick Perry, Elaine Chao…and…Mike Pence! And more! The list goes on and on.

So for the 2020 election Trump ran for reelection after nearly a year of Covid lockdowns and suffocating mask mandates that he didn’t do anything to stop, but also running on a short-term economic boom.

And this is where I have criticism of the Libertarian Party, but not for the same reasons that “Clay and Buck” have in their viewing libertarian voters as “imbeciles.”

No, my criticism of the Libertarian Party in the 2020 elections are of their own idiocy and elitism. As I wrote in this post, in the states that allowed Libertarian Party primaries in 2020, Jacob Hornberger was the big winner, getting 9,035 votes and 7 state wins against Jo Jorgensen’s 5,034 votes and 2 state wins. Yet, the LP convention attendees decided to nevertheless give Jorgensen the nomination for President. Mainly based on gender identity and “woke” reasons, obviously, but also maybe based on Hornberger’s constant criticism of the CIA. Some people believe the LP is infiltrated by the CIA, just as are the Republican and Democrat parties.

So in that case, it is the Libertarian Party apparatchik conventioneers who are the “imbeciles,” not the actual LP voters in the primaries.

But when it comes to Libertarian vs. Republican parties in elections, the ones who actually walk the walk on “free markets,” “individual liberty,” and “private property” are the Libertarians (usually), not the Republicans. Note the articles I cited above by Laurence Vance on the welfare/warfare statist, tax-n-spend Republicans.

One example I like to mention is the 2002 gubernatorial election in Massachusetts. It was Libertarian Carla Howell who campaigned on a platform of small government and free markets. But it was statist Republican Willard Romney who was elected.

And what did statist Republican Gov. Romney do? He raised corporate taxes, and raised fees by a lot as well. And then…he imposed RomneyCare on the people of Massachusetts, which was a model for ObamaCare! Thanks, Republicans.

And thanks to the predictable failures of RomneyCare, health care costs went up, not down. And RomneyCare also adversely affected some hospitals’ care for the poor, and killed some 18,000 Massachusetts jobs. Ultimately Massachusetts bureaucrats imposed health care price controls.

Meanwhile, the 2002 LP candidate for governor Carla Howell was at the same time pushing an initiative petition to repeal the state’s income tax, a ballot question that received 45%. So we know where she’s coming from. And her health care policy would probably have gone in the opposite direction, away from government control and toward the direction of the people’s control over their own health care. But no, we can’t have that. Libertarians are “imbeciles,” according to Clay and Buck (and many other Republicans and conservatives who ultimately love government control, that’s for sure).

And currently, the LP candidate for governor of New Hampshire is Karlyn Borysenko, who happens to be more critical of woke-ism than most Republicans. She is the author of the new book, Actively Unwoke: The Ultimate Guide for Fighting Back Against the Woke Insanity in Your Life, and see her Substack, Actively Unwoke. For instance, here she writes how Virginia Gov. Glenn Youngkin did NOT ban “critical race theory” in the schools. Here is her Twitter.

Now, I don’t know Borysenko’s views on LGBT and transgender stuff, but the Republican incumbent governor she is running against, Chris Sununu signed a bill into law banning discrimination based on gender identity, and banning “conversion therapy” as well. Sununu also imposed Covid fascism stay-at-home orders, business closures and mask mandates.

So, Sununu doesn’t believe in freedom of movement, private property rights, freedom of thought and conscience and freedom of association. A typical Republican, in other words, just like Democrats.

Worse, while Sununu didn’t arrest people outside his house for protesting his fascist policies, the FBI did subsequently go after some of them for alleged Bitcoin-related “crimes.” (So much for New Hampshire being the “Live Free Or Die” state, oh well.)

But many people will nevertheless vote for Sununu again, because he has that “R” after his name. After all, only “imbeciles” would vote for libertarians. And it will probably be the same thing in the other states, more rearranging of deck chairs with Republicans.

NH Free State Activist Carla Gericke Testifies on Behalf of Secession

Carla Gericke is a libertarian activist and New Hampshire Free Stater who gives testimony here in favor of putting a question on the ballot for New Hampshire voters to decide whether to secede and become an independent nation, just as the colonies seceded from the British.

Like the colonists’ oppressors King George and all his minions, our oppressors are slithering in the DC Swamp.

I wrote about Carla’s 2016 run for the state senate. In her 2020 run she was the Republican candidate and received 45% of the vote.

As I have said many times, this U.S. territory is just too big to be all one single political unit or country, at 3.8 million square miles and a population of 330,000,000 people.

It is time for a peaceful, voluntary decentralization and completely dismantle the totalitarian central planning Leviathan apparatus in Washington that has already destroyed, impoverished and murdered many, many lives.

Here is a video thread of Carla Gericke speaking on behalf of New Hampshire secession. (It might take a little time for each video to load. There should be a total of 4 videos.)
