So the election, as Silverwolf could see on May 17th, when he mailed in his re-registration going from a Republican (thankfully briefly) back to a Libertarian, — the election was going to come down to a contest between the two Fascists and Gary Johnson, and that is just what we have in September. Two milquetoast Fascist candidates, representing the two largest parties in America, and Gary Johnson, representing the Jeffersonian-Libertarian pro-Capitalist people in America, many of whom were formerly supporting Congressman Ron Paul’s candidacy.
Now, one may think Silverwolf exaggerateth when he calleth the brethren “two Fascists”, for Fascist conjures up the image of a jacketbooted thug dressed in State Black or Brown, laying into a protestor with his baton before having him sent to a concentration camp, or that strutting jackanapes Mussolini, who finally met a just end, giving one of his histrionic orations. But technically the term is accurate, because it’s founder, moosejaw Benito, defined Fascism as “corporatism”, or an alliance between the State and the major corporations (or all corporations) within the State. The bailouts of GM and AIG and the banks that were failing, and the Solyndra half-billion dollar rip-off, are textbook examples.
So calling Obama and Romney “Fascists” is accurate, although it may not involve the actual horrendous Civil Rights violations that were perpetraited under the European Fascists before and during World War II. Still, Obama is still arming the Indonesian Army Government Death Squads that murder, torture, and terrorize the populace of Papua. Radio Australia and the A.B.C. (Australian Broadcasting Corporation) have recently done some excellent documentaries on the murder of Papuan non-violent political activists, funded by that trio of moral bankrupts, President Obama, Julia Gillard, and former British PM Gordon Brown. These three were and are (we don’t know if PM David Cameron is continuing this vile policy) confiscating their taxpayer’s money to fund a reign of terror in Papua, in effect turning every taxpayer and every silent citizen in these countries into an accessory to murder. (And notice they are all “Liberals” in the current American sense of that word.)
You could have bet Obama would gang up on the defenseless peasants of Papua to curry favor with the immoral Indonesian Government. Anything for a buck over principles with that sort of politician, just as he’s done in Red China where the reign of terror and cultural genocide continues in Tibet, with the blessings and tolerance of the Prez and Ms. Rodham-Clinton. How can the American people vote in such enablers of terror?
With Romney, we already know that he is going to emulate the “Liberal Republican” views of his father as far as the Fascistic wedding between government and business. And on assaulting Civil Rights, Romney could well outdo the shameful Obama record. Either way it will be an Imperial Presidency and four more years of the Degeneration of America.
The one alternative for Libertarian-oriented Americans is former Govenor Gary Johnson of New Mexico. While no Ron Paul, he’s close and congruent to many and most of Ron Paul’s positions, and the experience of being Governor of a State for eight years means he could move into the White House with a certain ease. Americans like Governors who have governed well, and Johnson, a Libertarian-Republican or the other way around, was elected and reelected in a state that is heavily Democratic in registration.
An informal survey of 1,000 former Ron Paul supporters was very recently conducted by one of the Daily Paul’s fixture bloggers. (The Daily Paul is a website that has been running during Ron Paul’s campaign for several years. It is a locus point for news, clips, and views on the campaign which is now kaput.) This survey found that 66% of the thousand respondents were going to vote for Gary Johnson, as is Silverwolf, 16% were going to write in Ron Paul, even though they thought their vote would not be counted or attributed to Dr. Paul (i.e. “others” in the polling totals), and only 6% said they’d vote for Romney.
About a month back, a political observer for the Libertarian magazine, Reason, was predicting that a third of the Ron Paul vote would go to Johnson and the other two-thirds to Romney. We thought this was well off the mark, as we felt, from reading the mood, that Johnson would pick up two-thirds of Dr. Paul’s votes, since their policies were so similar at core, with one-third going to Romney in a “stop Obama” or “the lesser of two evils” justification. Looks like Silverwolf got the latter part of that call wrong. The 6% only going to Romney has nasty implications for his electoral chances. As we said in our last blog, dissing Ron Paul and his supporters at the convention, when they were treated like dirt, could well cost Romney the election. Romney blew his chance at winning outright two months in advance of the election when he dissed the Ron Paul movement. Some chess players like to turn won games into losses.
So that’s your choice. A Fascist versus another Fascist versus Governor Gary Johnson.
You pays your money, you takes your choice.
Hoooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooowwwwwwwwwww! — Silverwolf
