“The Real War On Science” by John Tierney; we are not sure of who he really is! extracted from http://www.onepoliticalplaza.com/t-88477-1.html by Voice of Reason:“This is an excellent (if somewhat long) read. I particularly liked the part showing how leftist psychological studies are carried out in order to perpetuate the myth that conservatives are evil… Another […]
Politics and religion are highly interesting topics; but unlike other interesting topics, such as science, we don’t need to appeal to authorities when defending our basic beliefs in these fields. We can think for ourselves from the ground up in politics and religion, and when we do—when we actually take the time and effort needed to arrive at reasonable beliefs in politics and religion—the results may qualify as legitimate accomplishments in which we should take pride.

This morning I’ll be heading for my designated polling place. Only one person gets my vote, while all the rest will get “None of the Above”. There is NOBODY in America who can (and WILL) fix the mess which our Rulers have burdened we Humans with, which makes “voting” a useless waste of time.
There will be no vote available for Dissolution, but I’ll work that onto my ballot anyway. For human beings to be truly Free, Dissolution must apply to every GOVERNment at every level!
The rest of this page is devoted to some good links of the day.
Politics is the theory and practice of government. It concerns itself with how force should be applied in controlling people, which is to say, in restricting their freedom. It should be analyzed on that basis. Since freedom is indivisible, it makes little sense to compartmentalize it; but there are two basic types of freedom: social and economic.
According to the current usage, liberals tend to allow social freedom, but restrict economic freedom, while conservatives tend to restrict social freedom and allow economic freedom. An authoritarian (they now sometimes class themselves as “middle-of-the-roaders”) is one who believes both types of freedom should be restricted.
But what do you call someone who believes in both types of freedom? Unfortunately, something without a name may get overlooked or, if the name is only known to a few, it may be ignored as unimportant. That may explain why so few people know they are libertarians.
From the Burning Platform: We all know the BLS artificially suppresses the CPI through bullshit substitution adjustments, quality adjustments, and various other incomprehensible hedonic adjustments made by government apparatchiks at the behest of their politician bosses. Some obscure theoretical academic calculation called owners equivalent rent accounts for almost a quarter of the CPI weighting.
Brandon Smith: Most of my readers are well aware of my position on election 2016 and U.S. elections in general – they are an eternal farce meant to give false hope to the masses. They are designed to make the public feel as if we are participating in our own governance, when in reality, we are only ever allowed to choose from a list of candidates that the elites pre-select. This does not mean that all politicians are corrupted or controlled, but according to the evidence I have seen, the majority of government represents the desires of a select few, and not the majority of the citizenry.
Having been a registered and somewhat active Libertarian for over 40 years now, that has been increasingly disappointing. Gary Johnson sounded better 4 years ago, but garnered only 1% of the vote. Today he’s polling much better, but has obviously lost his way, leaving us with nobody worth voting for… that’s right, NOBODY!
There was a time when the LP was based on Principle, but those days are long gone. Today’s Libertarians are scattered all over the philosophical map. Very recently I read the Arizona’s Libertarian Platform, https://www.azlp.org/platform.php — reading that was a SHOCK! Nothing within that suggests that Mises and Rothbard might survive. That platform seems both obsolete and awful,.
All that leaves me feeling both “homeless” and hopeless. The problems, which run throughout this platform is that, rather than addressing the problem by using the Libertarian ways of free enterprise and free markets, a myriad of solutions are proposed, almost always having GOVERNment do things in different ways, which always demand more “laws” and “better” punishment.
