I’m posting this around noon, with no word on who the next puppet will be, Trump or Biden (i.e. Harris).
The final vote tally is not yet ready, but it looks like Libertarian Party presidential candidate Jo Jorgensen is getting roughly 1 to 2% of the vote. She might as well be Lyndon LaRouche. In 2016 Gary Johnson the pothead got roughly 3.27% of the vote which was the highest ever for the LP.
I think that, had the hacks and apparatchiks of the “Libertarian” Party gone with Jacob Hornberger as their presidential nominee (the one the actual voters in the state primaries overwhelmingly voted for), there would have been a lot more enthusiasm among many in the Liberty movement, probably better publicity and more support. I am not saying that Jacob could have taken that many votes away from Trump and Biden to get much more over 3 or 4%. But, he was the better, more consistently libertarian and principled candidate.
But nooo, the hacks and apparatchiks of the “Libertarian” Party snubbed the voters of the primaries and went with the “social justice” crap, this obsession with gender and race that “social justice warriors” seem to have.
I would definitely support a 2024 LP candidate Jacob Hornberger, who will be only 74 then. Hell, I’d support Ron Paul at age 89 in 2024 for President. But, it looks like we probably won’t have an America anymore by 2024, because the Democrats and Republicans have turned the country into Amerika, and getting worse.
My preference instead is to just get rid of Washington, D.C., because it has outlasted its usefulness, whatever usefulness it ever had (which is to say, none). Decentralization is the answer to all this.
I know, I know. It is unrealistic to hope that someday the libertarian message will get across to the masses, when the government controls the education system and the mass media. That was apparent way back in 1988 after I voted for Libertarian Party nominee Ron Paul and then saw that he received just a few hundred thousand votes. The “news” media didn’t really report on his candidacy. There was no change in the reporting from the “news” media in 1992 with that election’s terrible LP nominee, Andre Marrou.
Back then, the “news” media would declare: “There are only Republican and Democrat, and that’s it.” Anyone who had views that strayed from the beloved Establishment, views that challenged the statist quo, were “fringe” or “extremists,” and shouldn’t be taken seriously.
Had today’s “news” media morons been around during the time of the American Revolution, those who promoted property rights, the Bill of Rights and the Declaration of Independence would have been run out of town and dismissed as “fringe” and “extremists,” as today’s promoters of liberty still are. Nothing has changed in all these decades in which the government has controlled education and dumbed down generations of people.
The ignorant “news” media along with the dumb-dumbs of the Democrat Party went with a corrupt Alzheimer’s sufferer as their favored candidate for President. That tells us something, doesn’t it?
And you can see how the low-IQ “news” media and their social media compadres are now not only ignoring libertarians and otherwise anti-Establishment dissidents but outright smearing, blacklisting and censoring them.
So while we’re all waiting, waiting, waiting to get final results of the election, election officials are counting, counting, counting ballots, mail-in ballots, absentee, as well as making up and stuffing ballots, putting in names of dead people, finding “lost” ballots in their car trunks and refrigerators, and more. And it’s mostly Democrats doing those cheating things.
Yes, Republicans have cheated and stolen elections or nominations, such as the Romney people stealing the nomination away from Ron Paul in 2012, but mainly it’s Democrats doing most of the cheating. They are the ones who want to extend ballot deadlines well past the date of the election, so they have more time to throw out Republican ballots and make up new ballots. The Democrats are the party of “ranked choice,” which is used to intentionally confuse voters and so the third runner-up will be the winner and not the actual top vote-getter. And the Democrats are the party who don’t want ID requirements to verify a voter’s identity. It’s easier to cheat without being required to identify yourself. Duh.
And in this election specifically, the Democrat and leftist people have shown how unhinged they are in their hatred of Donald Trump. I’ve never seen anything like it in all my years.
First they make up a “Russia collusions, interfering in the election” scheme, along with a made-up Steele dossier that was used to present false information to the FISA court to illegally spy on the Trump campaign (a collusions accusation that was all debunked by the Mueller report). And then they have a CIA “whistleblower” use an everyday phone call between Trump and the Ukrainian president to try to impeach Trump, which didn’t succeed. And then the Covid scamdemic, whose main purpose was to terrorize the masses to fear voting in person on November 3rd so they would want to mail in ballots, so the mail-in balloting could be used for massive cheating and voter fraud (like they’re doing right now). The scamdemic terrorism and panic was also used to tank the economy, and tank they did, to try to undo Trump’s economic successes with the tax-cut-stimulated economic expansion and extremely low unemployment rate.
But despite the schemes and the cheating, by extremist, unhinged low-IQ psychopaths and loony-tunes Democrats and their “national security” partners, Trump will probably still win reelection. Nancy Lugosi will begin the first of many impeachment proceedings because she and the other wackos just don’t like him. But the House will stay under Democrat control for that wonderful gridlock. If you’re pro-liberty, should should appreciate gridlock. And if Biden still wins, the Senate looks like it will remain Republican controlled to slow down the Democrats in the Soviet-clone communist paradise they are drooling to inflict on the rest of us.
Ignorant, government-loving Trump still hasn’t drained the swamp, and it doesn’t seem he ever will. Not with Jeff Sessions, Bill Barr, Chris Wray and Gina Haspel, as well as the Goldman Sachs crowd including Steven Mnuchin. And all the military generals Trump has surrounded himself with, all those horrible interventionists, neocons, militarists, globalists, etc.
In 2012 there was a good chance that a Republican presidential nominee Ron Paul could have ousted Obama, because Dr. Paul was the only candidate who was beating Obama in the polls in head-to-head matches. Romney is…whatever.
But the truth is, the only way now to save our hanging-by-a-thread civilized society is to decentralize the society. That means getting rid of the government in Washington, even through secession if necessary. Such a notion bothers a lot of people who are long-time nationalists, like most conservatives especially. But that is what needs to be done. Otherwise, it is becoming Soviet Union 2.0 and that’s not good.
