Democrats Debate: Who Is Most Control Freak?

The Democrats running for President had more debates this week i.e. it was a kook fest, and I didn’t watch them because I stopped watching television in the mid-1990s. But I have heard many, many excerpts all week on the radio talk shows and I don’t know whether to laugh or cry.

I don’t know where to start, so I’ll just start with “Mayor Pete” Buttigieg. Well, so far the name “Pete” has not been good for Presidential aspirations (see Pete Wilson and Pete du Pont for instance). Let’s hope the trend continues here.

Mayor Pete tried to use a Bible verse as well as his economic ignorance to shame opponents of the minimum wage to accept his promise to create more unemployment by increasing the minimum wage.

He also made it a racial issue. But when the minimum wage goes up, that causes employers to have to cut those entry-level, low-skilled jobs because the employers can’t afford to pay those workers a wage that’s higher than what their jobs are worth. That is why we get higher unemployment, and entire businesses closing down, when minimum wage goes up by law.

The people most affected by this government-imposed mandatory minimum wage are the teenagers and young adults who are trying to get their very first work experience, trying to get their foot in the door. And it especially affects minorities in the cities.

So Buttigieg and the other interventionists are taking opportunities away from those young people. And teenagers (and many young adults as well) don’t need a “living wage,” by the way, because they are being supported by their parents. But they do need work experience, and if they don’t have it by age 20 or 22, they shouldn’t complain about not being able to find a higher-paying job after high school or college.

I think that most of these lying, dishonest politicians actually know these facts, but they pretend otherwise just for the sake of getting people to vote for them.

And Buttigieg is the one who criticized Donald Trump for getting out of the Vietnam War, but Buttigieg didn’t criticize the Vietnam War itself! Buttigieg criticized Trump for NOT going to some foreign country to kill innocent civilians for no good reason! Meanwhile, I think that each and every young person who got out of going to Vietnam or who went to Canada to avoid it should be PRAISED! They are heroes for not going over there and killing innocent people!

But Mayor Pete is a warmonger and doesn’t see it that way. Hmm, I wonder how many innocent civilians he killed in Afghanistan, a country that HE invaded along with the rest of the U.S. military, and for no good reason. Let’s hope the answer is zero. (Unlike the young Americans who were forced to invade and bomb and murder in Vietnam involuntarily because of the draft, the modern U.S. invaders and bombers and murderers in foreign countries have been doing so voluntarily.)

Anyway, I liked hearing Tulsi Gabbard pointing out that as a prosecutor and California attorney general Kamala Harass oversaw 1,500 marijuana arrests, and that she “blocked evidence that would have freed an innocent man from death row until the courts forced her to do so,” and that she “kept people in prison beyond their sentences to keep them as cheap labor for the state of California.”

And, I would add, Harris’s fascist anti-“truancy” law in which she arrested and jailed the parents of kids who missed too much school, i.e. were absent too many times from their mandatory government-indoctrination prison camps. (Just like the Germans, Kamala. Yay!) And just as Gabbard says that Harass laughed about jailing marijuana users, she also laughed about jailing the “truant” kids’ parents.

But there seem to be many libertarians who like Tulsi Gabbard for her looks anti-war positions, but she shows a lot of ignorance in that area as well. For instance, she says that the U.S. military shouldn’t be over in those foreign places for “regime change,” but to fight and “defeat al-Qaeda.” And she believes that Islamic fanaticism is to blame for the terrorism. So, she’s just as brainwashed as many people are since 9/11. She doesn’t seem to get that what causes the terrorism in the first place has been the U.S. government’s invading and bombing those countries over there, since well before 9/11 (see this and this).

Being extreme authoritarians, the Democrats seem to want to impose “Medicare for All” on the rest of us. They say they want to fix the medical care system, despite the fact that all their previous interventions have failed. For example, ObamaCare has been in effect for years now, so why is there still a problem?

The medical care system in America was the best in the world before Medicare and Medicaid came in and distorted the markets in medical care. The free market provided people with not only many choices, but because of the lack of government intrusions into medical care, doctors were financially able to provide free care for people who couldn’t afford it or who didn’t have insurance. Dr. Ron Paul was one of those who treated lower income people including minorities, for free. There were MANY doctors like that, way back when. Now, not so much.

But the truth is, these politicians don’t care about people being able to get medical care, as they propose all these terrible things just to get people to vote for them, and that’s it! As FDR said about Social Security or LBJ said about Medicare (or both), these kinds of government hand-outs are to ensure that more people will vote for THEM, for Democrats for all of eternity. That’s all that matters to these people, power and control. Expanded government powers gives them plenty of control.

More and more these power-mad politicians want to take choices away from the people, they want to make private insurance illegal (and soon private-practice medical care) and impose a one-size-fits-all scheme onto everyone, whether they like it or not.

The reason these government worshipers want so much control and want to force you into a “Medicare for All” scheme is that they want access to all your private medical information. They want “cradle to grave” control in medical care, and “cradle to career” tracking and surveillance in the young people as well.

The control freaks, including every hippie freak weirdo at these Democrat debates, want to intrude into every aspect of everybody’s private life, to “prevent discrimination,” to make sure everybody works toward a better social credit score like in China, to make sure that there is “no inequality” in society. Why? Because they are brainwashed social engineering fanatics. And that is why “Medicare for All” with these extremely crazy people.

And what the political elites really want is a two-tier medical system, in which the political class, their henchmen and all their little hangers-on will get the first-class care when they want it, and the rest of us get whatever the apparatchiks think we deserve, just like in the old Soviet Union.

It is just like the two-tiered judicial system we have now. Powerless people who are accused of something by the government get thrown in jail for life, while the elites, the political class get away with whatever they want to get away with. (See Jeffrey Epstein, Comey, Brennan, Lois Lerner, et al.)

And besides Mayor Pete, Kamala Harass, and Tulsi Gabtard, there are the scummy or just plain crazy crackpots, including “Beto” O’Rourke, Jay Inslee, Cory Shnooker, Gillibrand and Biden. But Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders are outright communists. They seem to just want the government to have complete control over all industries, labor and employment, and property just like in the old Soviet Union. I’ve never seen a bunch of crazies, ignoramuses and psychopaths as we have in this bunch. They are just as bad as the Rethuglicans.

Speaking of the Rethugs and Trump, their intrusion policies of trade tariffs, debt and deficit spending cause, among other things, higher prices for consumers and thus they lower the standard of living for the society. Trump’s tax cuts, which expire in a few years for individuals, are only helpful in the short term and don’t mean very much in the long term, because Trump and the Republicans refuse to cut spending. They are irresponsible criminals, just like the thieving Democrats.

And Trump’s immigration and drug war police state are further eroding freedom and prosperity in America. Why don’t Democrats say anything about dismantling the Amerikan police state? The NSA, CIA, FBI, DHS, TSA, and more. They all need to go. But Democrats love the police state, as that is what their SovietCare program is all about.

Sadly, we never, ever hear anything from Democrats (or Rethugs) about freedom. Just more and more government control, and more and more police state. (Oh, and “Racist, Racist, Racist!” etc.) They all suck. Don’t vote for any of them, or for Trump. In fact, don’t vote at all!

Donald Trump Hates Socialism – Except That … He LOVES Socialism

Jacob Hornberger responds to Donald Trump‘s recent tweets of “America, love it or leave it!” and that “We will never be a Socialist or Communist Country…” and Hornberger explains that America turned socialist long ago and that Trump and the conservatives have supported socialist policies for decades and decades.

Some examples that Hornberger gives include Social Security, Medicare, government “public” schools, immigration controls and the national security state. They all involve income confiscation and redistribution, and central planning.

And as I wrote in my July, 2016 article, Libertarians for Socialism, Trump wrote on his campaign website (no longer available, but Wayback Machine snapshot here), government must “make sure that no one slips through the cracks simply because they cannot afford insurance. We must review basic options for Medicaid and work with states to ensure that those who want healthcare coverage can have it.”

And I wrote:

As Trump made clear in his interview last September with Scott Pelley on 60 Minutes, Trump is “going to take care of everybody,” and that “the government’s gonna pay for it.” And he promised to fund all that by raising taxes on the wealthy. In his February appearance on a CNN Town Hall with Anderson Cooper, Trump stated that while he wants to repeal ObamaCare he nevertheless likes the mandate because he doesn’t want “people dying on the streets.” In reference to his Medicaid expansion proposal (which he referred to as “Medicare” in the CNN interview), Trump stated, “That’s not single payer, by the way. That’s called heart. We gotta take care of people that can’t take care of themselves.”

And by “we” he doesn’t mean private charities or businesses, which is the free-market way, but government, which is the failed socialist way.

Here is The Donald in the interview with Scott Pelley, in which Trump explains his support for single-payer, government-run health care:

I also wrote in that article, which appeared on EconomicPolicyJournal.com:

And socialist programs in the U.S. such as Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security are collapsing. But Donald Trump won’t touch Social Security, and, according to his official campaign website, won’t cut anyone’s entitlements.

Obviously that last link which was on Trump’s own campaign website, is no longer available. (Why is there a picture of Hillary on that “Oops!” page?) Here is that page on the Wayback Machine.

Trump won’t touch entitlements because he believes in socialist redistribution of wealth schemes, which is what all those entitlement programs are. He is a socialist.

And this video is a compilation of different Trump interviews and talks in which Trump contradicts Trump and flip-flops like a Romney impersonator.

Anyway, Trump should not say that America will never be a socialist country, when it is a socialist country in many respects. And he can’t say that he is not a socialist when in actuality all his policies are socialist policies. He is one of the most anti-free market, anti-capitalism, anti-private property authoritarian Presidents we have ever had.

So Trump is clueless about what America is all about, which is voluntary exchange and free markets and free trade, not compulsory exchange and government-controlled trade, and America is about private property rights and the voluntary contract. Trump is the one who doesn’t like America and wants to impose governmental intrusions into the economy and into the lives of the people.

Yes, his tax cuts helped to get businesses to raise their wages and salaries and give employees bonuses, and make more investments. But Trump still loves the income tax and doesn’t want to abolish it, despite its being a fundamental aspect of the socialist society that he envisions. The income tax is government theft of private property and wealth because it is based on an involuntary exchange, based on coercion and threats. No different from a robber demanding your money or else.

In the end, Trump is no different from the other socialists, from Elizabeth Warren to George W. Bush. Oh, well.

In 2020, Can the Libertarian Party Nominate a Truth-Teller for President?

In my recent post on some of the prospective Libertarian Party candidates for President of the United State, I mentioned Jacob Hornberger, who is the founder and president of the Future of Freedom Foundation. I think he has not yet made a formal announcement on a run for President. But he does have a campaign website.

Unlike Gary Johnson and Bob Barr, Jacob Hornberger is not afraid to tell the truth about the evil of American militarism and criminal military invasions abroad, the evil drug war, and the evil of taxation and welfare redistributionism, all of which have contributed to America’s downfall.

For instance, Hornberger has a post on his campaign blog, unafraid to tell the truth about Mayor Pete Buttigieg and Congressman Seth Moulton, two Democrat war veterans running for President.

In the blog post, Hornberger mentions Moulton and Buttigieg’s experiences in the U.S. military as invaders of Iraq and Afghanistan, respectively. And that this week both candidates have criticized Donald Trump for “faking a disability” to get out of a military enslavement to kill innocent people in Vietnam. Yet, as Hornberger points out, neither Moulton nor Buttigieg has any criticism for the criminal wars of aggression against Iraq and Afghanistan that George W. Bush started and that were carried out by the U.S. military.

The two Democrat candidates clearly do not see the forest for the trees. They are criticizing someone for not invading another country for no good reason, and for not bombing and murdering their people.

While Hornberger doesn’t mention this in that particular blog post, we can get an idea of Buttigieg and Moulton’s warped kind of thinking from their views on domestic policies. They are clearly kooks, just like their fellow Democrat brethren and sistren Democrats for President.

Both Buttigieg and Moulton support the “Green New Deal,” because they are either total ignoramuses or they are just a couple of sniveling dishonest weasels who know that the society couldn’t possibly get rid of cars, trucks, planes and cows and doing so would end up impoverishing and wiping out just about the entire society. So, given that both are quite intelligent people, supposedly, I think they’re just “playing along” with the other Democrats on that issue.

Mayor Pete supports “Medicare for All” because he doesn’t understand why, like ObamaCare, that won’t work in the real world. (Hornberger, by the way, had a recent post on his regular blog describing why Medicare and Medicaid have been the root cause of America’s health care crisis.)

However, Seth Moulton does not support “Medicare for All,” and instead supports the so-called “public option.” In my view, this is probably because Moulton is a slithering, slimy sleazebag who really does want “single payer” i.e. SovietCare but would impose it though the back door.

With a “public option,” we can have our private health insurance if we want it but at the same time a government-run health care program would be available as an “option.” Here, government doesn’t have to worry about the voluntary participation of consumers and instead gets its funding through taxation, which is involuntary, i.e. coercive. So, while the government-run “public option” health care program wouldn’t have to worry about profit and loss and the bottom line to remain functioning, the private sector insurers would still have those extra pressures of competition. Thus, the government-run program will drive the private insurers out of business. There is nothing optional about a “public option.” Eventually the government will be the only insurer. i.e. SovietCare.

So given their dishonest positions on those issues, I am not surprised that both Buttigieg and Moulton have no criticism for the criminal wars of aggression in Iraq and Afghanistan, and instead criticize Donald Trump for avoiding Vietnam, which people should have avoided, either out of moral conscience or to save themselves from being unjustly crippled for life, psychologically traumatized or killed for no good reason.

How many innocent people in Iraq and Afghanistan did Buttigieg and Moulton murder? They were the invaders of those other countries, not the other way around. The inhabitants of those lands had every right to shoot back to defend their homes and families from slaughter by the invading U.S. government marauders.

Now, Jacob Hornberger’s saying and writing truthful things about the crimes of government and bureaucracy might not go over too well with many people who have been bamboozled with the religion of American Exceptionalism.

Even in 2020, I don’t know whether the American people are ready to hear the truth about such things. It’s not just a population indoctrinated from their 12 years of government schools, but much of the indoctrination since 9/11 is due to the constant 24-7 propaganda from the goddamned mainstream media! The warmongering “liberal” media! If we look at the NFL and other sports games and their military tributes and America’s churches and their sickening un-Christian military worship, as well as that in pop culture in Amerika, I think it would take a lot of convincing speeches and truth-telling to get people to consider deprogramming themselves after years of obedience and deference to the almighty Amerikan State.

And given how the Libertarian Party convention in 2016 seemed to consist of so many statist sheeple in their nominating of Gary Johnson the pothead, I don’t even know whether it’s possible that the Libertarian Party can return to their being the “Party of Principle” ever again, i.e. the party of Ron Paul and Harry Browne.

Anyway, Jacob Hornberger also has a thing or two to say about “Tariff Man,” Donald Trump. And of course, abolishing the FBI. Yay!

“Medicare for All”? Really?

The U.S. House of Representatives is attempting to shove another “Medicare for All” bill down the throats of the people, with extremely unrealistic mandates, and Laurence Vance has 3 big questions that are not being asked about it.

Vance’s questions are:

1) Is it constitutional? 2) Is it the proper role of government? and 3) Who should pay for health care?

Vance notes that the U.S. Constitution doesn’t authorize the federal government to get involved in health care or health insurance, that it’s not a proper role of the government to get involved in those things as well as many other things, and that no American is entitled to receive health care at the expense of another, meaning involuntarily.

But I also have some questions. Many people now are being indoctrinated to believe that we have a “right to health care,” that is, a right to have someone provide us with medical care when we demand it. Does this include, for example, a fat slob who doesn’t exercise and who eats junk food and doesn’t particularly care about his weight, his health, his heart, his arteries? Should he be included in the “All” who have a “right” to health care, or “Medicare for All?” If so, why should this slob’s neighbors be forced at gunpoint (which is what involuntary taxation is, quite frankly) to have to chip in to pay for providing him with the attention of a doctor when he has his heart attack or stroke? Sorry to be blunt here. Bottom line is, if this guy doesn’t care about his own health, then no, he does NOT have a “right” to force his neighbors to care for him. (If neighbors still want to care for him, then they can always do that, voluntarily, if they want to.)

Same thing for smokers. I know, there are far fewer smokers now than there had been in the past. But they’re still out there, and being litterbugs and throwing their cigarettes down on the ground at the bus stop or wherever. Now, these people KNOW that there’s a good chance that they’re giving themselves lung cancer, heart attacks, and other ailments, because of their smoking. Should they, too, have a “right” to force their neighbors to have to chip in to provide them with health care? I say no. And please don’t give me this “Well I’m addicted, and I’ve tried to quit but can’t” crap. The smoker is voluntarily lighting up a cigarette and putting it up to his mouth and inhaling, and repeatedly. No one is forcing you or threatening you to have to do that. It’s all by your own free will. (If you can’t quit, try hypnosis. One of my mother’s friends did that many years ago and it worked, after she tried everything else.) I don’t believe that people who smoke like chimneys or do other hazardous things to themselves should have a “right” to force their neighbors to provide them with a doctor and medical treatment.

What about people who drink like a fish? Okay, I’m sure you get my point.

No one has a “right” to demand his neighbors give him medical care, no matter what ailments one has, no matter what “preexisting conditions” one has.

What we do have a right to is to not be robbed, by criminals on the street or by criminals from the government. We also have a right to keep all our medical matters private and not be required to give any personal information to anyone including government bureaucrats, our medical matters as well as our financial and other personal matters.

We also have a right to be left alone by bureaucrats. If they want us to participate in some scheme that we don’t want to participate in, then we don’t participate in it, and they don’t send armed goons after us and throw us in a cage if we don’t comply. That is exactly the kind of Soviet or fascist society these people in Washington, the real crazy ones in power now, want. They are police statists who want to force these intrusive schemes onto us whether we like it or not, and if we resist, they send the armed thug police after us, kick in our doors and kidnap or shoot us dead. That is the nature of the socialist ignoramus, it has always been that way, and it always will be that way. These people in Washington reject the idea of freedom because when people are free, the crazies in Washington lose the control over others they crave so desperately.

Washington Is Filled with Morons, Psychopaths, and Ignoramuses

What is wrong with Donald Trump? And all his followers. Why are they so much against freedom?

Trump wants to close the border. That’s ridiculous. America is supposed to be about freedom, free markets, free trade, not government restrictions on everybody’s freedom.

The Authoritarian-In-Chief now wants to impose a “Border Czar,” or “Immigration Czar,” apparently in the same way that Ronald Reagan appointed a “Drug Czar.” That sure worked out well. The “Drug Czar” put a stop to all those druggies and potheads out there, for sure.

The police state dingbats will do the same with immigration, you betcha.

And why all the short-sightedness from Trump and others? They are hysterical regarding the problems at the border. The “crisis.”

Hysterical loony-tunes panic and call for closing the border altogether, as well as escalating their police state.

“Oh, all the drugs coming through the border.”

Actually, it’s the war on drugs that’s mainly to blame for that “crisis.” Your nanny state dictating to the people what chemicals they may or may not put into their own bodies.

You’re not going to stop people from getting their goddamn drugs.

It’s 50+ years of the drug war now, people including teens are still getting all the drugs they want. It’s your prohibition that’s causing the black market that incentivizes the low-lifes to want to profit from the weaknesses and vices of others, as the black market in drugs creates the drug pushers who get people addicted and the drug traffickers who profit from the black market, the drug lords and drug cartels.

Another cause of the immigration crisis is the U.S. government’s foreign interventionism in Central and South America. Cut it out.

And America’s welfare state. Are there immigrants coming to the U.S. and getting on welfare? Welfare is a truly immoral policy, because it is not funded voluntarily. Welfare is funded involuntarily by the government’s stealing earnings from the workers and producers of society. Stealing is immoral, and criminal. Please Donald shut up about crime coming from “illegal” immigrants, when you preside over the largest crime syndicate ever in the history of man, the U.S. government. Stop stealing from the people.

But he wants to close down the border, rather than end the criminality, corruption, stealing, and the police state coming right out of Washington.

What else is The Donald doing that’s stupid, criminal or evil? He is now saying that Republicans will be the “party of healthcare.” What? Are they doctors? How will Republicans do anything in healthcare? They’re politicians (i.e. morons).

And now he’s saying that he will wait until after the 2020 election to do something with healthcare. “We’ll pass the bill and then we’ll find out what’s in it.”

In other words, he’s doing a Nixon: I have a secret plan to end the war. But really Trump has a secret plan to end our healthcare completely, by caving and giving in to the socialists who want total government-run healthcare. But isn’t that what Trump has been calling for all this time?

And the idiots are so concerned about people with pre-existing conditions, they really want to force insurers to go out of business. The Rethugs are either just dishonest or they actually don’t understand that forcing insurers to cover pre-existing conditions will cause such coverage to get progressively worse for those with pre-existing conditions.

I hove no doubt that Trump does not understand that, as well as many other things in healthcare, government, and life.

And yesterday on the Sean Hannity radio show, Rep. Steve Scalise was pushing his born-alive abortion bill. There are people, mainly Democrats, who want to allow people to murder a newly born baby, because the mother has changed her mind. How sick is that? But Scalise and other Rethugs in CONgress love the wars and sanctions and detaining peaceful people traveling to find a better life for themselves and their families. The Rs are just as bad as the Ds, quite frankly.

And then we have women complaining about Joe Biden. He likes to be “affectionate.” No, he likes to touch and feel and grope and be intrusive on others, just as any other pathological narcissist likes to do. Which is to say, most politicians. They love to have the powers of government, and the apparatus of spying and intruding, making the people have to report to the bureaucrats the details of their private personal and financial lives, involuntarily. And the Rulers love siccing the government police on people who don’t comply.
