Democrats and Republicans (i.e. the “Government Party”) vs. the Libertarian Party

The Democrats had another debate this week. Here is a summary:

  • We want to steal more of your money.
  • We want to impose more regulations, restrictions, prohibitions, confiscations, mandates, requirements and intrusions into your lives, enforced at government gunpoint.

And that’s it. In other words, they are no different from the Republicans. Both the Rethugs and Demtards are just two parts of the one Government Party, in Warshington and all the smaller territories within good ol’ USA.

It’s the same thing election after election, year after year, with the Establishment parties, the one Government Party. It will never get better, only worse.

I know, a lot of conservatives and libertarians are fooled by the con man in the White House. His individual tax cuts expire in just a few years and he did that just to give you enough crumbs so you will vote for him next year. And Trump’s trade idiocy is causing uncertainty. The problem at the border, the drug addiction crisis and other societal problems have their roots in government interventionism, which Trump loves. He’s a central planning-loving kind of guy.

And the Republicans and Democrats are entrenched and enmeshed with the government. They make laws that protect their power and restrict other parties from competing and getting their foot in the door. The “news” media are all with that. So this is really a racket, and I mean a genuinely well-organized “legal” protection racket, a literally criminal organization, which is why the leaders of both Establishment parties need to be forced, maybe by a court and a decent judge if there are any in good ol’ USA, to change the laws to remove any and all restrictions on third parties’ rights to get names and candidates on ballots. If they don’t make such changes then those in control should be charged with racketeering, just like the organized crimesters they are.

And for all those reasons we need to take another look at the Libertarian Party. (I can’t believe I’m saying that.) And I don’t mean the Gary Johnson-Bill Weld Libertarian Party, but the Ron Paul-Harry Browne Libertarian Party. The “party of principle.”

And just recently I wrote a post referring to Jacob Hornberger who is contemplating a run for President as a Libertarian Party candidate. I don’t know if he necessarily agrees with my assertions about the Democrat-Republican criminal racket, but he is someone who does promote freedom, which is what the U.S. used to be all about.

In his speeches at recent state LP conventions, Hornberger included this statement:

We are not Republicans, and we are not Democrats. We are also not Republican-lites, and we are not Democrat-lites. We are not “socially liberal and economically conservative.” We are libertarians, and we need to fight as libertarians!

We live in a dysfunctional society, one in which there are soaring suicide rates, especially among young people, massive alcoholism and drug addiction, and mass killings for unexplainable reasons.

That shouldn’t surprise anyone, given the dysfunctional welfare-warfare state way of life that Republicans and Democrats have foisted upon our land. Republicans and Democrats both need to be taken to account for what they have done to our country with their system of mandated socialist charity, massive taxation, immoral and racially bigoted drug war, forever foreign wars, undeclared wars, wars of aggression and endless occupations, war on terrorism, torture, assassination, secret mass surveillance, national-security statism, interventionism, imperialism, monetary debasement, infringements on civil liberties, intrusions on privacy, trade wars, sanctions, embargoes, alliances with dictatorial regimes, foreign aid (i.e., bribery), coups, war on immigrants, managed and regulated economy, and out-of-control federal spending and debt, all which have brought death, suffering, economic and financial harm, and destruction of liberty to our land as well as to people in other parts of the world.

If we Libertarians continue adhering to principle, we have the potential of leading America out of the statist morass into which Republicans and Democrats have plunged our nation. By adhering to principle, we have the chance to lead our nation, and indirectly the world, to the highest reaches of freedom, peace, prosperity, harmony, and morality that mankind has ever seen.

In fact, Jacob Hornberger’s latest columns on non-interventionism are very good, too. In this column, he succinctly explains why interventionists won’t help the Kurds, and today he explains empire and interventionism vs. republic and non-interventionism.
