Fascist vs. Fascist vs. Gary Johnson

September 10, 2012

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.

Libertarianism: Individual vs. Corporate

June 22, 2012

Silverwolf believes there is a necessary distinction that needs to be made when one bandies about the term “Libertarian”; a distinction that is often blurred over. There are two views of Libertarianism: the Individual view and the corporate view. The Individual view is represented largely by the thought of Ron Paul, who has pointed out that Corporatism fundamentally runs the Federal Government and is the essence of Fascism according to its founder, War Criminal Mussolini, and the corporate view, which is largely represented by the remainder of the Republican Party, which is that Corporations are Individuals. It is the Mises Institute in contrast to the Cato Institute. It is a battle pitting the Individual against the Collective.

One of the necessities in our law that needs correcting, which Ron Paul has also pointed out, is the absurdity of the Supreme Court rulings that place the corporation on the same level as the Individual. This fabricated equality, nowhere present in our Constitution, which is a paean of praise to Individual Rights, must be overturned in Law even if it means impeaching Supreme Court Justices or Chief Justices. Mitt Romney says “Corporations are people.” Ron Paul says, “Individuals are people.”

Now lets examine the “corporation”. First of all, it is a notional concept, not a being in reality. A corporation is not an Individual; it is a Collectivist entity — basically a gang of Capitalists, with special legal advantages and usually lower-than-individual income tax rates, who are ganging up against Individual Capitalists. This Collectivist entity should have no special privileges; nay, on the contrary, it is the Individual who should always come before this Collectivist entity.

Silverwolf sees that the main body of the Republican Party is now, with the Romney nomination in the bag, shifting towards this Corporate Collectivism, and, unfortunately, Gary Johnson too has many Corporate ideas that should be anathema to Individualistic Libertarianism, like school vouchers that will subsidize private school profits, and privatizing prisons, which seems like a green light for prisoner abuse without legal recourse, justified by the usual cost-savings arguments of the Pragmatists, and even a zero income tax for corporations.  Now, Silverwolf opposes the Individual income tax and the Estate and inheritance taxes, both Federal and State, based on the Constitutionally guaranteed Rights, but he sees nothing in the Constitution that forbids the taxation of a Collectivist entity known as the Corporation. This income tax could be tailored to exclude small businesses and individuals who want to take advantage of the liability advantages of incorporating, perhaps starting at a $5 million AGI, so that only really large, affluent corporations would be subject to the income tax. Perhaps this tax, in combination with Constitutional limited government would be all that was necessary to fund the Federal Budget, and once the U.S. budget deficit and Federal debt have been erased and effaced from the surface of the earth, then the corporations can also have a zero tax rate, or near zero if there were no other tax sources such as, for example, an excise tax on products from Fascist dictatorships like Red China, Indonesia, and Iran.

Still, despite his shortcomings, Gary Johnson will be the necessary choice for Libertarians and Ron Paul Republicans because voting for Romney or Obama will leave blood on your hands. When voting for evil will mean someone innocent gets murdered, vote for the neutral but moral choice, even if you think it is a sure loser. At least you will not be directly complicit in Immorality. You won’t have blood on your hands, and perhaps that is the most important fact when you’re coming out of the voting booth.

Silverwolf believes that true Libertarianism should always stress the Individual, which is a Reality, and not the Corporation, which is a notional nothingness masquerading as an Individual Reality. The Republicans and Democrats will constantly try to blur this distinction, as will those “Cato” Libertarians who are gung-ho on the Corporations. Usually because they own lots of stock in them.

If we are to have collective security, we must defend the Rights of the Individual over and above those of the Collective. This is one of the cornerstones of Libertarianism, without which so-called Corporate Libertarianism would soon be indistinguishable from Fascism, as it is in America where Obama is letting the Corporate frackers destroy thousands of Individual’s properties by ruining their water supplies. This is the quality of Obama’s “environmentalism”, about equal to the quality of the homesteader’s polluted well. Environmentalism and Libertarianism share a common goal: defending the Individual against Property Rights Aggressions from other men or groups of men. The groups of men are often now called “Corporations”.

Face it, it has come down to the Individual and the Earth ranged against the Corporate might of the Democratic and Republican Parties. If Man and Life on Earth are not to perish, the Individual must win out.
