The Future of Freedom Foundation had a civil liberties webinar recently. Ron Paul spoke about Property Ownership: The Ultimate Civil Liberty. From that page:

Dr. Paul explains how without property rights, all other rights are impossible. Starting with the ultimate property right, the rights to one’s own body, to the sanctity of contracts, to the right of the people “to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures,” property rights are the fount from which liberty flows.

Will New Hampshire Secede from the Dysfunctional States of America?

A New Hampshire state legislator has filed for a constitutional amendment to put a question on the 2022 state ballot for New Hampshire to leave the United States of America, a NHExit.

According to WND, the Amendment would read, “New Hampshire peaceably declares independence from the United States and immediately proceeds as a sovereign nation. All other references to the United States in this constitution, state statutes, and regulations are nullified.”

I looked through the New Hampshire Libertarian Party twitter to see if there has been any reaction:

Just a reminder, the American Declaration of Independence reads:

When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. 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. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.

He has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.

He has forbidden his Governors to pass Laws of immediate and pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation till his Assent should be obtained; and when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them.

He has refused to pass other Laws for the accommodation of large districts of people, unless those people would relinquish the right of Representation in the Legislature, a right inestimable to them and formidable to tyrants only.

He has called together legislative bodies at places unusual, uncomfortable, and distant from the depository of their Public Records, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with his measures.

He has dissolved Representative Houses repeatedly, for opposing with manly firmness his invasions on the rights of the people.

He has refused for a long time, after such dissolutions, to cause others to be elected, whereby the Legislative Powers, incapable of Annihilation, have returned to the People at large for their exercise; the State remaining in the mean time exposed to all the dangers of invasion from without, and convulsions within.

He has endeavoured to prevent the population of these States; for that purpose obstructing the Laws for Naturalization of Foreigners; refusing to pass others to encourage their migrations hither, and raising the conditions of new Appropriations of Lands.

He has obstructed the Administration of Justice by refusing his Assent to Laws for establishing Judiciary Powers.

He has made Judges dependent on his Will alone for the tenure of their offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries.

He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harass our people and eat out their substance.

He has kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies without the Consent of our legislatures.

He has affected to render the Military independent of and superior to the Civil Power.

He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation:

For quartering large bodies of armed troops among us:

For protecting them, by a mock Trial from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States:

For cutting off our Trade with all parts of the world:

For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent:

For depriving us in many cases, of the benefit of Trial by Jury:

For transporting us beyond Seas to be tried for pretended offences:

For abolishing the free System of English Laws in a neighbouring Province, establishing therein an Arbitrary government, and enlarging its Boundaries so as to render it at once an example and fit instrument for introducing the same absolute rule into these Colonies

For taking away our Charters, abolishing our most valuable Laws and altering fundamentally the Forms of our Governments:

For suspending our own Legislatures, and declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever.

He has abdicated Government here, by declaring us out of his Protection and waging War against us.

He has plundered our seas, ravaged our coasts, burnt our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people.

He is at this time transporting large Armies of foreign Mercenaries to compleat the works of death, desolation, and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty & Perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the Head of a civilized nation.

He has constrained our fellow Citizens taken Captive on the high Seas to bear Arms against their Country, to become the executioners of their friends and Brethren, or to fall themselves by their Hands.

He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavoured to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian Savages whose known rule of warfare, is an undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions.

In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A Prince, whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.

Nor have We been wanting in attentions to our British brethren. We have warned them from time to time of attempts by their legislature to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us. We have reminded them of the circumstances of our emigration and settlement here. We have appealed to their native justice and magnanimity, and we have conjured them by the ties of our common kindred to disavow these usurpations, which would inevitably interrupt our connections and correspondence. They too have been deaf to the voice of justice and of consanguinity. We must, therefore, acquiesce in the necessity, which denounces our Separation, and hold them, as we hold the rest of mankind, Enemies in War, in Peace Friends.

We, therefore, the Representatives of the united States of America, in General Congress, Assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the Name, and by Authority of the good People of these Colonies, solemnly publish and declare, That these united Colonies are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent States, that they are Absolved from all Allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as Free and Independent States, they have full Power to levy War, conclude Peace, contract Alliances, establish Commerce, and to do all other Acts and Things which Independent States may of right do. — And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor.

Any of that sound familiar?

Some Misc. Items

Several times on this blog I have referred to Joe Biden as the “Alzheimer’s-In-Chief,” like yesterday, which might be offensive to some people. So, I apologize for that. I am not making fun of people who have Alzheimer’s, and I’m not making fun of Biden because he has Alzheimer’s. But I am sarcastic and Biden is a corrupt and criminal politician who is the beneficiary of election fraud and has no place being in the White House. (Actually no one has any place being President, but that’s for a different discussion.) It is very sad that someone like Biden who is clearly out of it and clearly is in an advanced stage of Alzheimer’s is being used by the puppet masters and by the “liberal interventionists” and socialist-progressives to ram their agenda through. Eventually the Cabinet will have to use the 25th Amendment and let Kommie-La be the Puppet-In-Chief. But, I know Alzheimer’s is serious, I shouldn’t refer to Biden as the “Alzheimer’s-In-Chief,” and so I will change that to “the Alzheimer’s patient in the White House,” which is a little less sarcastic and a little more accurate.

Regarding Donald Trump’s lawsuit against Fakebook and Twitter, et al., I hope that gets dismissed because those Big Tech companies, as bad as they are, are privately owned. They are not monopolies. If you really don’t like them then it is your responsibility to use their competitors or start a new social media company. That’s called the “free market.” But what Trump the fascist/socialist wants is to force private companies to have his social media postings on their platforms outside of their control regardless of what he posts, by government force. And even if they receive tax-funded subsidies, I still think the same way. If they do receive tax subsidies, then those should be removed. If they receive tax breaks, then they should keep their tax breaks. Everyone should have tax breaks because the taxes are involuntary forms of theft and need to be abolished. People have a right to keep everything they earn or honestly acquire. And no, tax breaks are not “subsidies,” because tax breaks allow people to keep more of what is already theirs in the first place.

NYC Elections, and the Truth about “Ranked Choice” Voting

I don’t really know that much about the New York City mayoral election going on now. Apparently there have been some screw-ups and this “ranked-choice” voting supposedly is involved in some way.

In ranked choice voting, allegedly, if the top vote getter doesn’t get over 50% of the votes, then voters have stated who their second choice would be, and it goes on from there to intentionally confuse the voters, as that is one tactic of the cheaters out there in order to get their candidate who did not win, to win.

But the truth is, when you have the candidate who received the most number of votes but not over 50%, the rest of the candidates together are not the equivalent of a single candidate opposing that top vote-getter. The rest of the candidates are all individual candidates. They are not a collective group that equals one opponent to the top vote-getter. That just is not the case and it shouldn’t be the case. Yet, that is really what the “ranked choice” proponents seem to be implying. There is no legitimate reason to have to get over 50% of the votes!

Now, here is a legitimate election: the one who receives the most number of votes wins. And that’s it. You don’t have to get 50% or more. Just get the most number of votes. Duh. You can have many candidates, and the top vote-getter gets something less than 50% like 39% for sake of discussion, but the other candidates all received less than that candidate’s 39% and did not get as many votes as that candidate. Whoever gets the most number of votes is the winner. And that’s the legitimate way to do elections. Anything else is a bunch of made-up crap to confuse people, like a Common Core version of voting, in order for cheaters to get around the requirement of receiving the most number of votes, to steal an election.

And that’s what I have to say about that. Now, as far as New York City is concerned, if I lived in New York any candidate who wants to decentralize the city, i.e. to break it into separate independent cities, for example to have a City of Manhattan, a City of Queens, a City of Brooklyn, and so on, would probably get my vote. (And each new city can further decentralize into separate independent neighborhoods, etc., etc.) And further, any candidate who wants to repeal or just not enforce all drug laws, gun laws, selling individual cigarettes laws, sugary drinks laws, taxi medallion laws, all zoning laws, and most other laws and regulations that violate property rights and individual liberty, would probably get my vote.

“Juneteenth” Now a Legal Holiday. No, Slavery Has Not Ended in America

The nudniks in the U.S. CONgress have voted to make “Juneteenth” a federal holiday, standing for June 19th of 1865 that was supposedly the “end of slavery” in America.

Well, it was the end of chattel slavery in America, which is when an individual directly owns and keeps another and can sell or buy such enslaved as personal property, and in the absence of a voluntary contract. The slave master can order the enslaved to do this or that involuntarily.

Prior to 1865, this was a legally permissible arrangement and it was enforced by law. Further, if an enslaved individual escaped and fled there were also laws in place called “fugitive slave laws,” in which people had to capture the runaway slaves and bring them back to their “owners.” President “Honest Abe” Lincoln 100% supported and enforced such laws.

But in 1865 it was not the end of “slavery” in America. So, this “Juneteenth” or June 19th is a misnomer.

Believe me, we still have slavery in Amerika, in the truest sense of the word.

For instance, if you allow the bureaucrats in Washington or your state or city government to confiscate money or earnings from your bank account or paycheck without your consent, then you are a “slave.” They own you.

Your labor is then involuntary and in service to government, without a voluntary contract. You have no choice. You are their slave. Some people prefer the word “serf.” But they do own you. People who are owned by others are slaves, in my view.

Your being a free human living by voluntary agreements has been “legally” canceled and replaced by your being a slave to your lobbyist masters, your politician masters, your military/security contractor masters, your Big Pharma masters, and all the other recipients of your earnings that are in return for your labor, earnings that are taken from you involuntarily using coercion and threats to your life.

Some people object to my using the word “slave” to describe what people are in Amerika. “You’re trivializing black people’s slavery,” etc. No, I’m not doing that.

That slavery was specifically chattel slavery as noted above. But in our current society, if you are forced to do labor involuntarily and your justly-acquired property is stolen away from you then you really are a slave.

There are other forms of the people being owned by others. If you consume or ingest any kind of chemical substance that only  bureaucrats and their enforcers approve of, because of threats against you if you disobey, then you are enslaved to their control that they have no moral authority to have.

When the government decides for you what you may or may not put into your own body, then the government is your ultimate owner. The government owns your body, not you. Does that not make you a slave?

In contrast, when you decide what you will put into your own body, with or without anyone else’s permission, then you own you.

And if government like the nazi state of New York orders you to have to have an untested, experimental drug injected into your body against your will or informed consent, then you are a slave to those bureaucrats. They own you and your body.

But back to the black people or other minorities and slavery. We know that the “war on drugs,” the government prohibiting certain drugs and enforcing such prohibition with gestapo force and zeal, is a racist drug war. Government’s drug bureaucrats and their enforcers have been targeting black people for 50 years.

Yet at the same time the government such as FDA and CDC apparatchiks push the worst “legal” pharmaceutical drugs onto the people, and idiot “doctors” worship at the feet of the pharmaceutical companies and will do whatever the corporate dictators want. I guess those dumb “doctors” are slaves as well. And so are the millions of ignorant sheeple who still in the 21st Century have this blind, superstitious faith in pharmaceutical drugs and establishment medicine in general, despite how incompetent and corrupt the typical moron with an “MD” is today, and despite how many people have been further sickened or killed by pharmaceutical drugs.

Another way that government apparatchiks including the union thugs have been targeting black people is through government-mandated minimum wage laws. When the government makes it unlawful for an employer to pay a worker below a government-mandated minimum wage, if employers can’t afford to pay the higher wage, then the employer cuts that job.

That is why unemployment levels go up when higher prices for labor are imposed or raised by the fascists. Price controls cause shortages (or over-supply), in this case a shortage of jobs available for the young or otherwise low-skilled would-be workers.

Not only do jobs get cut by businesses in city after city when minimum wage goes up, but many businesses have to close down because business owners can’t afford the higher costs of labor imposed on them by fascists.

So, because these minimum wage laws greatly affect young black people in the cities, the government essentially is locking out the young black people from getting their foot in the door of opportunity by causing the number of available jobs to shrink.

And what about all those “Black Lives Matter” and Antifa riots, looting, property destruction and arson and burning down hundreds and hundreds of businesses in cities, businesses that were owned by black businesspeople and that employed black workers? What does this say about the power BLM/Antifa marauders have over others who are black and who choose to peacefully make a living in life?

A lot of the “Black Lives Matter” and Antifa marauders and thugs are white, by the way. (White, brainwashed loony-tunes snowflake nazis.)

And have you seen the BLM/Antifa mobs ganging up on restaurant patrons dining outside and the mobsters ordering the diners to have to chant stupid mantras along with them? The fascist mob is really saying, “You shut up, slave, I own you so you better do what I tell you to do and say what I tell you to say!” (Hmmm, should they read “How to Win Friends and Influence People” by Dale Carnegie? Ya think?)

That reminds me, if you censor yourself to protect a fragile snowflake from being triggered, then that snowflake owns you, you are a slave to the snowflake. Or if you censor yourself out of fear of being “canceled,” or fear of your bank or credit card company closing your account, then you are a slave to them, no? (Now, I am not suggesting that people take the risk of losing finances in the name of speaking your mind, that risk is up to you. But, I am merely describing the situation matter-of-factly.) So, slavery in the general sense of the word has not ended in Amerika.

A lot of those people, by the way, who support government taxation-theft of private wealth and more and more taxation-thefts, who support minimum wage laws, drug prohibition or mandatory drug/vaccine laws, are the same ones who want to transform the U.S. into a society of total socialism/communism. They want slavery, in other words.

In a nutshell, socialism or communism is slavery of the individual by the rulers.

When we have a free society people are free to make use of and benefit from their own abilities and labor however they want, and without a bureaucrat’s permission or intrusion. People own their own lives, their bodies, their labor and the earnings from their labor, and their justly-acquired property. Trades, transactions, associations are all voluntary in a free society. No coercion. That is the non-slavery way of life.

But in socialism/communism, the government tells you what you may or may not do with your own life, your labor and property. That is because under such a system the bureaucrats are the ultimate owners of everything and everyone. Your movements, associations, trades and transactions are not voluntary, they are involuntary. Much if not all of life’s activities are under the control of bureaucrat-parasites. They are the owners, you are the slaves. And that is what the people on the left want, with them being in control of everything and being the ultimate owners of everything and everyone.

Over the many decades we have already seen many examples of how government bureaucrats are our ultimate owners, and there’s nothing we can do about it. Their diktats, regulations and controls, orders, thefts and enslavements are enforced by the “law enforcement” branch of the bureaucracy.
