[LPNM] A Modest Proposal

Filed under: Politics — Tags: , , , , , — mikewb1971 @ 5:42 PM (17:42)

Now that the LPNM[1] has apparently attained “major party” status for the second time[2], the LPNM will most likely be awash in those of all stripes who expect the Party and its members to toss the Non-Aggression Principle in the trash because, well, how else can we support the legislation that they advocate?

Not only that, but many of these people will insist on being LPNM candidates, party officers, what have you, because after all, no one truly understands how trashing the NAP will bring us to liberty in our lifetimes like they do.

I propose that while they might be very willing to delegate that initiation of force to the public sector, they probably don’t have the stomach to do it personally.

Thus I suggest that we offer them knives, or clubs, or whatever, and let them demonstrate that they do indeed personally have what it takes.

This scene from Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight (2008) comes to mind —

I have no intention of starting a civil war in the LP’s ranks (one could argue that one has been going on since 2006[3]), but let’s head this off before we end up like the Reform Party of 2000, from which I had read accounts of actual physical fist-fights on the business floor of their national convention.

Especially when I keep seeing articles that the entire county may be headed for a civil war itself. NOT the sort of thing that happened between 1861 and 1865, but more like The Troubles in Northern Ireland, with a rural vs. urban component to it for kicks.

In either case, we of principle aren’t going away. Nor will we voluntarily disarm ourselves.[4]


NOTES

  1. If there are any other state affiliates of the LPUSA facing similar circumstances, I have no problems with them adapting this proposal to their purposes.
  2. The LPNM briefly attained “major party status from 1999 to 2001 after Maurice McDonald ran for State Land Commissioner in 1998 and recieved about 9% of the total votes cast, which was equivalent to 5% of the votes cast in that year’s gubernatorial election.

Friday’s Bizarre Phone Call

Filed under: Fun, Humor, Life, Politics — Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , — mikewb1971 @ 7:02 PM (19:02)

Friday afternoon (4 November 2016), I received a call from a Hillary Clinton supporter (calling from a private number) who complained about a robocall from the Gary Johnson campaign. The caller then proceeded to ramble on for 57 minutes about Gary being too stoned and narcissistic to be a good little Buddhist Democrat, that Gary was “stealing votes” from Hillzilla, along with side rants about Susana Martinez, Trump, the GOP in general, the Albuquerque Journal, and Ralph Nader (for “stealing votes” from Gore in 2000).

The caller also stated that Gary didn’t climb Mt. Everest as he said he did (and took pictures from the summit), that he was a lousy governor of New Mexico, didn’t do anything but say “no” to well-meaning “progressive” legislation that was “for the children,” that no one pays any attention to her “because I’m white,” that Susana Martinez was elected as Governor in 2010 solely on the strength of her last name, among other things.

I have the app “Automatic Call Recorder” installed on my LG K7, but it turns out that the app is the app equivalent of dogshit, as I discovered when I tried to copy the saved call from my phone to Facebook, WordPress or my laptop’s hard drive.

Idiot of the Day for Wednesday, 2 November 2016

Filed under: Networking, Organizing, Politics — Tags: , , , , , , — mikewb1971 @ 10:39 PM (22:39)

The Idiot of the Day is one Bill Tallman.

While browsing Facebook, I received a notification that a picture had been posted —


I dunno about you guys, but this is probably the most compelling ad I’ve ever gotten in the mail during election season.. Only problem for the sender is that it makes me want to vote for the person they are attempting a hit piece on, lol.. Doesn’t it make her actually sound really great?! Might make Hannah register and vote for her.. Thought and opinions very welcome!

When I asked the guy who posted the picture (an an-cap sort) who sent it to him, he replied —

Bill Tallman, the Democrat opponent, strangely enough, clearly a confusion campaign aimed at confused Republicans

The he followed up with this —

He knocked on our door about a month ago, and I chatted him up for about 30 or 40 minutes. He’s completely oblivious about libertarian perspectives on issues. I gave him a copy of Bastiat’s The Law.

Furthermore, I as a partisan Libertarian have no problems endorsing Lisa Torraco for re-election to her State Senate seat (District 18 [1]).


NOTES

  1. I’m in District 26, a Democrat safe seat.

What would a Libertarian Administration look like?

Filed under: Economics, Media, Politics, Principles — Tags: , , , , — mikewb1971 @ 1:06 PM (13:06)

The Gary Johnson presidential campaign seems to be the Libertarian Party’s best chance at winning the White House to date. That possibility seems to have lots of people scared out of their minds.

So let’s take a look at some ways that a Libertarian Administration would conduct business.

First, we need to understand that libertarianism is all about the Non-Aggression Principle: No one has the right to initiate force or fraud against anyone else, nor to threaten or delegate that initiation. No exceptions will be granted “under color of law.”

Also understand that we’re NOT looking to be Romney / Bush Republicans with “L” after our names. If we wanted that, we would simply cut to the chase and sign up as Democrats.

With that in mind, here are some examples of the policies that our prospective Libertarian Administration will undertake:

First, a Libertarian Administration will NOT seek to expand the size, intrusiveness or expense of government by one iota, on any issue. We’re not looking to grow the federal government — not by two percent, much less the ten or twenty percent that a Clinton or Trump Administration will attempt. At worst, we will FREEZE it where it’s at when we take the reins. The 2017 budget that we receive on January 21st will be the budget for 2018, 2019, 2020 and 2021.

No, we’re not looking to expand the welfare state one bit. Nor are we looking to create more regulations upon business or your personal life. Those regulations stifle creativity, growth and economic progress.

Second, the White House will become a pardon factory. All of the people in prison solely for federally-mandated victimless crimes — sawing off a shotgun barrel, having more than a certain amount of marijuana, draining a puddle on their own property — will be pardoned, because they didn’t really do anything wrong.

Third, we’re going to STOP putting people in prison in the first place for those victimless crimes — after Obama decided that he can pick and choose which parts of Obamacare he can enforce, we can choose not to enforce the victimless crime laws, as well — and we’re going to call for the repeal of those laws.

Fourth, we’re going to drastically reduce taxes, if we can’t wipe them out completely. This idea that we’re going to settle for a 25-30 percent national sales tax is nonsense. If we’re going to compromise on a tax rate, it will be more like five percent, and disregard that “revenue neutrality” hogwash — that’s just pundit-speak for “We don’t really have to cut spending.”

Fifth, we’re looking to fundamentally transform the welfare state from what it is now — a massive top-down, bureaucratic system for legalized vote-buying — into something that actually helps the people it’s supposed to help. We’ll turn the various agencies into 501-c-3 charities, and forbid them from taking tax money or lobbying governmental bodies in their charters. Then the people who support them will know that their donations will go a lot further.

Nor do we support any corporate welfare. No more bailouts, no more tax-funded football stadiums, movie subsidies, or contracts for white-elephant projects. The “Albuquerque Rapid Transit” inanity is a prime example of this.

Sixth, on foreign policy: for decades, libertarians have been defamed as “isolationists.” True isolationism was Japan between 1635 and 1853, or China between 1757 and 1839. We simply don’t want America to be micromanaging the affairs of the rest of the world.

Seventh, we will not support forced association under the rubric of “non-discrimination” or “public accommodation.” The slogan “NO means NO” used against rape apologists works just as well here. No Jew should have to bake a cake for a Nazi wedding. This concept should be applied consistently across the population.

To summarize, We The Libertarians simply want to live our own lives, and let everyone else live theirs.

Libertarian Solutions to Closed, Non-Competitive Elections

Filed under: Media, Politics — Tags: , , , , , — mikewb1971 @ 2:02 PM (14:02)

Over the decades, we’ve seen America’s elections become less and less competitive, and slanted towards incumbents more and more.

In just this year’s election, eight of the seventeen State Senate seats in Bernalillo County are uncontested, with only one person running for the office. Correspondingly, twelve of the twenty-four State Representative seats in Bernalillo County are uncontested.

Part of this is simply due to New Mexico’s mañana culture of “I’ll get around to it when I feel like it” – with the end result (someone stepping forward to run for office) never happens.

Another part of this is the way that districting has been done in New Mexico, which heavily favors incumbents. When was the last time that a Republican stood a real chance of winning Congressional District 3, or a Democrat of winning District 2? The State House and Senate is similarly afflicted.

Here’s fixes to the system that Libertarians can get behind:

Enact uniform signature requirements for all candidates, regardless of partisan affiliation, or lack thereof. Every candidate for a given office should have to get the same number of signatures, and any registered voter should be able to sign any candidate’s nominating petition. No more of this bit about having to get signatures from only people registered with one party. End the current rule that if you sign more than one candidate’s petition, all of your nominating signatures are invalidated.

End the practice of using tax dollars to fund the conventions and primaries of the “major party” organizations. Let them pay for it themselves – they’re perfectly able to afford it, what with all of the donations that they get from corporate special interests.

Leave the straight-party voting option off the ballot. If it does get put back on, then put straight “YES” and “NO” options for the bond issues and judicial retention spots on the ballot.

Explicitly allow ballot selfies – basically, repeal NMSA 3-8-50 (A)(1). It’s your vote, thus you should be able to tell people about it. Any statute outlawing such voluntary disclosures is a violation of the First Amendment and of Article II, Section 17 of the State Constitution.

Eliminate all forms of public campaign financing, as that forces people to support via taxation candidates that they wouldn’t otherwise touch with a ten-mile pole.

Why should black, Latino and Jewish voters be taxed to fund a candidate fronting for the KKK or Aryan Nations?

Why should LGBT voters be taxed to support someone who thinks that Westboro Baptist Church doesn’t go far enough?

As with the “bake a cake” question, it’s all about freedom of association, folks. Let people support candidates of their own free will, or not at all. Maybe they have something better to spend the money on, like food, utilities, car payments, whatever? It’s their money, not yours or mine.

If you really want a form of candidate subsidies in place, let the parties do it themselves. Again, as with conventions and primaries, they have plenty of cash. As long as there’s cash in the public till and the State has the power to regulate the private sector, the donors will be there, attempting to influence the system in their favor.

Or set up a domestic non-profit LLC (something like a 501-c-3 under the current federal tax code). Make sure that its charter forbids its officers from lobbying the Roundhouse or any other governmental body, or from accepting any money from the public treasury. While you’re at it, make sure its charter also forbids its officers from making statements on any other issue while representing the organization. You do want to keep it as non-partisan as possible, correct?

If you seriously want to give the candidates a hard time about campaign finance, don’t limit how much they can take from any one donor. Again, it’s not your money or mine, it’s the donor’s. Instead, ask the candidates about how much they received, and from whom. Use your rights under the First Amendment and Article II, Section 17 to tell your friends, family, whoever, about the candidates’ strengths and shortcomings. Especially if the candidates’ election year ad copy doesn’t match up with what they do while in office.

I’m sure that there are many more things that can be done to fix New Mexico’s broken election system without making government bigger, more intrusive or more expensive. Who has the courage to make them happen?

[LPNM] Allen Cogbill, In Memoriam

Filed under: Friends, Obituary — Tags: , , , — mikewb1971 @ 9:46 PM (21:46)

It is with a heavy heart that I must announce the passing of our beloved Treasurer, Allen Cogbill. Allen passed away unexpected on October 25 from a recently-contracted lung disease. Allen served the LPNM as Treasurer, doing a fabulously superb job of bookkeeping, for as long as I have been associated with the Party. He was a dedicated Libertarian who lived his principles, and was a good friend to us all.

Allen, thank you for having enriched our lives with your presence. We are going to miss you.

Marty Swinney
State Chair, Libertarian Party of New Mexico

    Except using the word “isolationist” in relation to libertarians is pure slander and libel. True isolationism is Japan between 1635 and 1853, or China between 1757 and 1839. Libertarians are simply opposed to foreign policies that micromanage the rest of the world.

    I don’t see Trump himself as a racist — he’ll use eminent domain to take a white guy’s house for his next parking lot or golf course just as quickly as he’ll take a black guy’s house — but he seems willing to play to that crowd if doing so gets him what he wants.

    And of course, most of what we see of him is filtered through the lamestream snoozemedia, which is 96% in the bag for Hillary.

    A 5% tax won’t fund the massive, bloated government that you insist is necessary. I never said that it would. Before 1913, America got by with just tariffs and excise duties, and still fielded a Navy, Army and Marine Corps.

    And it also means that others are freer to develop alternatives to the product that just jumped in price by a factor of nine.

    And don’t the oil and gas companies run pipelines from their offshore sites to onshore refineries? Gosh, they must be leaking all over, because we all know that their shareholders make more profit as more oil is spilled.

    As for healthcare, Medicare and Medicaid were started in 1965, and costs have continued to go up and up ever since. That’s what happens when you tell people “this won’t cost you anything.”

    If we change or dump the tax system first, then there might not be a tax code with a 501(c)(3) provision in it. Whatever — the welfare agencies should still be non-profit charities outside the government sector.

    As for the “smoke and mirrors,” we libertarians don’t see anything but that on the progressive side. Aesthetics are arbitrary.

    “I know. I wanted to point out the lie within the rosy article. It is quite simple really, ask a few questions and wait for answers that actually make sense. I never get any.”

    Funny — that’s what we think of progressives, too. What a coincidence!

    Costs also rise for those of us in the private sector who get stuck with the bill for the welfare state, too. The public sector can tighten its belt just like we poor suckers not on the public sector payroll or the dole just as much, if not more.

    If they’re Romney / Bush Republicans, hopefully AS MANY AS POSSIBLE.

    Basically, the proposed amendment gives more power to state and local government for a flimsy-at-best justification.

    Government’s only excuse to exist is to protect the lives and liberties of its constituents. Governments have a proven 5,000 year track record of doing a lousy job in that mission, and quite often, government officials deliberately act against that purpose.

    Libertarians have NO business advocating for making government bigger, more intrusive or more expensive. There are plenty of Democrats and Romney / Trump / Bush Republicans chomping at the bit to do exactly that.

    If there wasn’t a Libertarian running for Governor of New Hampshire, Weld’s donation(s) to Chris Sununu wouldn’t have been an issue at all. But since Max Abramson WAS nominated as the Libertarian candidate for the same office this year, those donations were an act of treason against the Libertarian Party.

  7. Posted to Facebook

    Most libertarians and a good bit of conservatives have the attitude of “what’s mine is mine, what’s yours is yours” where life, liberty, property, money, etc., are concerned.

    Most apologists for victim disarmament, on the other hand, have the attitude of “what’s mine is mine, what’s yours is negotiable (and ultimately mine)” towards everything.

    Hence the anti-gun-owner bigots’ playing fast and loose with facts where “debates” on gun rights are concerned.

    First, I agree about Johnson being more of a Democrat than a Libertarian. His running mate is even worse. I've been in the LP since 1994, and active in the LP of New Mexico since 1996. It looks even worse from the inside.

    Second, can't argue there, but that won't stop Hillary from trying to cheat her way to the White House. It doesn't help Trump that the lamestream snoozemedia is ninety-plus percent in the bag for her — like two ticks conspiring on finding the best hiding spot on your pet.

    Third, never underestimate the Democrats and Democrat-wannabes (some call the latter "Republicans") — very few contests have been lost by overestimating the opposition.
