2021 Election Roundup: Boston and New York Races for Mayor

I have been spending a lot of time here on the Covid/vaccine scam racket, so it’s time to return to politics. There are races for mayor in some cities and for governor in some states, you know. Let’s discuss.

I’ll address the races for mayor in Boston and New York here.

The race for mayor of Boston is down to two female candidates, both Democrats, with no third-party alternatives. Fascist city councilors Michelle Wu and Annissa Essaibi George. As usual, the people of Boston have a choice between Tweedledum and Tweedledee. Oh, well.

Like their Democrat President Joe Biden (D-Shady Pines), both Wu and George are Covid vaccine fascists, as both support government-imposed vaccine mandates. The mask crap is bad enough, you two. Wu wants to mandate vaccine “Your Papers Please” at all city restaurants, gyms and performance halls.

I can’t believe just how ignorant today’s politicians are now. There is no reason for any of these “vaccines” that are not vaccines, or lockdowns, mandates, or masks. Covid has a 99.9% survival rate, and asymptomatic carriers are not spreading the virus. So all those fascist policies have been based on a lie.

Anyway, both candidates, Michelle Wu and Annissa Essaibi George, are also climate crusader kooks. True believers in the climate stuff. Don’t they understand that the Earth’s climate has been changing ever since it began, like for hundreds of millions of years now. Climate change has been happening naturally, and not at all influenced by human industrial activity, or human-caused carbon emissions. And there’s nothing humans can do to “end climate change.” There is no actual science or evidence to back up the assertions that humans are causing “worse and more intense storms, worse hurricanes,” and so on. The True Believers only have computer models, that have been wrong. Oh, well.

Now, the “news”casters have been saying that with either fascist the people of Boston will be electing their first elected “person of color” as mayor. I don’t see why Asians or oriental Asian Americans are considered “people of color.” I guess because ethnically they are considered “non-white.” Michelle Wu is of Taiwanese heritage.

And Annissa Essaibi George says she identifies as a “woman of color,” even though when I search her name and click on images I see … a WHITE person! Shouldn’t you have some “color” if you are a “person of color”? I know, technically white is a color. But I think being “of color” supposedly means “non-white.”

But does it really matter what someone’s skin color or race is? A fascist is a fascist. Or communist, however you want to put it. They aren’t freedom advocates, that’s for sure.

Let’s get out of Boston, and move on to New York now. I mean that figuratively, of course. I would never actually move to New York. I am not a masochist.

In the current election for mayor of New York City, there are two major-party candidates, and several other candidates. The Democrat is former cop Eric Adams, who supports, you guessed it, Mayor Bill Duh Blasio’s government-imposed Covid vaccine mandates. The Republican is radio talk show personality and Guardian Angels founder Curtis Sliwa, who is against the mandates.

I had the unfortunate circumstance to be listening to Bloomberg Radio later yesterday and heard Joe Mathieu (pause much?) interviewing Sliwa and Adams.

Unfortunately, even though he is against the vaccine mandates, Sliwa is ignorant about the Covid and “vaccine” situation. And he said that he has three kids in “public” schools, a.k.a. government indoctrination prisons, and he says he wants his kids “vaccinated” (against Covid) and that the school kids “need to be protected,” by “vaccinating” them (with experimental drug injections that are already causing young people heart inflammation and other adverse reactions and death?).

And Adams told the pausing Mathieu that we should “follow the science,” which, unfortunately, to him means following the anti-science “advice” of the CDC and “public health” agencies, all those rubber-stampers for Pfizer and Moderna, Johnson & Johnson, Merck, Glaxo and all points between.

Oh, well. So much for these two clowns, Sliwa and Adams.

Anyway, Sliwa actually supports the unconstitutional “stop and frisk” policy of government police goons stopping mainly minority youths and searching them, without a reason to suspect them of an actual crime that may have been committed.

But like it or not, government goons have to obey the LAW, which is the Constitution they swore to obey, which includes the Fourth Amendment. So it sounds like Sliwa doesn’t want to do that.

If you want to reduce crime in the streets, then repeal all the drug laws. Drug prohibition causes a black market which raises the price of drugs which incentivizes low-lifes to want to be drug pushers in playgrounds to get youths addicted, and drug prohibition creates the drug traffickers, drug lords, cartels and so prohibition contributes to the increases in the actual crimes of robbery, assault and murder in society.

Additionally, repealing all minimum wage laws will bring back many entry-level jobs in the cities so that the youths can have that important first job and getting their foot in the door of opportunity that statists have taken away from them with their bad government-compelled minimum wage policies. When the youths have a part-time job (or full time), that keeps them busy and more responsible, so they won’t get involved in drugs or criminal activity. There would be much less of an opportunity for Curtis Sliwa and other police-state fascists to stop and harass youths just standing around being black or Latino.

But sadly, the two statist party candidates, TweedleRepublican and TweedleDemocrat Sliwa and Adams don’t mention those necessary things.

Adams was endorsed by the conservative New York Post, and Sliwa was endorsed by talk radio personalities Sean Hannity and Frank Morano.

But unlike in Boston, there actually are more candidates from which to choose for mayor of New York. According to Ballotpedia, those candidates are: William Pepitone (Conservative Party), Quanda Francis (Empowerment Party), Raja Flores (Humanity United Party), Stacey Prussman (Libertarian Party), Skiboky Stora (Out Lawbreaker Party), Catherine Rojas (Party for Socialism and Liberation [self-contradictory much?]), and Fernando Mateo (Save Our City Party).

Sadly, Ballotpedia is showing how statist it is by giving only the initial “L” in parentheses after Stacey Prussman’s name, but it spells out all the other candidates’ parties in parentheses. I put the full word “Libertarian” in there.

According to the Forward, Libertarian candidate for mayor of New York Stacey Prussman is the “art, culture and food” candidate, the one who wants to be “the Jewish mother of New York City.”

Prussman is a recovering eating disorder sufferer and a vegetarian who wants to open more vegan kosher delis in New York. She wants to fight hate among the youth by teaching young students to cook. Quoted in the article, she says, “And then when they get older, they know how to make their own food and be healthy and to enjoy a meal together with someone from a different culture and background.”

So let’s fight all those anti-carrot juice bigots out there.

Anyway, Prussman’s platform is not particularly “libertarian,” such as promoting a “Universal Tax Equity” and “Equitable Basic Income” plan, to “provide 2,000 full time New York City residents who filed taxes from 2014 to 2019 with $2,000 a month for 2 years….”

No, you see as Murray Rothbard would say, taxation is theft. Taxation is theft because it is involuntary, and not based on a voluntary contract which any legitimate transaction would be based on.

So, because taxation is theft, the real libertarian plan 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, and tell government thugs to stop stealing from the people!

And people have a right to their privacy and security, so no reporting anything to the government. If it is invasive to have to report your personal life matters to your neighbors then it is invasive (and thus criminal to coerce or compel) to have to report anything to the government.

However, Stacey Prussman does promote legalizing cannabis and decriminalizing sex work. Those are libertarian positions.

At least there are alternatives to the two statist party candidates, Tweedledum and Tweedledee. But at the end of the day, the city of New York needs to decentralize, as do all cities and towns, and the states of course, and especially, good ol’ United State of Amerika, USSA.

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.
