This 9-minute cartoon shows how fascism/socialism/communism destroys human happiness and prosperity -------- When anybody preaches disunity--tries to pit one of us against the other through class warfare, race hatred, or religious intolerance--you know that person seeks to rob us of our freedom and destroy our very lives. -------- --John Q.

Here is another example of American Exceptionalism (Resolution No. 6 of the 1840 Democrat Party Platform): -------- 6. Resolved, That congress has no power to charter a national bank; that we believe such an institution one of deadly hostility to the best interests of the country, dangerous to our republican institutions and the liberties of the people, and calculated to place the business of the country within the control of a concentrated money power, and above the laws and the will of the people. -------- What it means It is in America where the danger of central banking was included within a major political platform. It was a continuation of sentiment from the beginning. Judging from those who expressed opinion about it, most of America's Founders were against central banks. America was the one country which you could retreat to if you were libertarian. America isn't an origin of anti-individualist, statist-collectivism. The rest of the world is "at fault" for originating that (and bringing it over here). In a 1948 cartoon (Make Mine Freedom), they called it "imported double-talk." Why it matters If a person gets a communicable disease, you don't blame the person for their own ills--ie, blaming the victim--you blame the disease for their ills. Instead of blaming the victim, good medicine focuses on eradicating the disease (returning the patient to full health). As socialist big spenders represent a "disease"--it is only natural (and sly strategy) that they seek to blame America or the "free market" for the ills of society. It's no different when a virus or bacteria mutates to avoid detection by the immune system. It takes the spotlight off of you, so that you can work further harms. A key reason for a central bank is so that the government can run huge deficits while running lavish ("socialist") programs. If the government was limited to spending just the current tax revenue (the taxes earmarked to be spent that year), the size of the federal government would drop by 25-50%. A central bank, combined with fiat currency, is a means to pay for things through the back door, socializing the costs of programs citizens are unwilling to pay for (so that we end up paying either way). More "The 1840 convention is notable for being the first in which a party platform was adopted. The delegates clearly stated their belief that the Constitution represented the primary guide for political affairs in all of the states. ... Once again the Democrats opposed the establishment of a national bank. The platform said that such an institution would concentrate monetary power in Washington in such a way that would be harmful to the best interests of the people." #boogabego #economics #philosophy #politics

For 8 batches in a row in Wisconsin -- beginning at 2:23pm London Time on 4 Nov 2020 -- Republicans got 49.898% of the vote batch, and Dems got 50.102%. Batch sizes spanned from 700 up to 14,000. But the standard error of proportions on n=10,000 samples, when sampling from a population with overall percentage of 49.900% Republican, shows that 98.4% (984 out of every 1000) of the sampling batches will have proportions outside of the range of 49.890% to 49.910% Republican. There is only a 1.6% chance of obtaining a batch within 49.890% to 49.910% Republican -- such as the 49.898% observed 8 times in a row. That's about a 1 in 60 chance to see it happen once by chance alone. If each time there is only a 1.6% chance to see it -- and you see it 8 times in a row -- the probability of that is this: 4.29 x 10^-15 Written out with the zeroes, it is this: .000 000 000 000 004 29 That's not even a chance as high as "one-in-one-hundred-trillion." You are more likely to be struck by lightning TWICE than to see that happen! -------- The Z-score for being .0001 away from proportion of .4990 is 0.02 -- meaning that it is one-fiftieth of a standard error/deviation away. When sampling normally, you are only within one-fiftieth of a standard error 1.6% of the time (p = .984). In other words, 98.4% of the time, your sample proportions are farther away than a mere .0001 away from true population proportion. -------- Source: See last image at:

The Danger of Unilateral Respect Unilateral (non-mutual) respect is deference, and when it is freely given, that is idolatry. When it is demanded, that is tyranny. Approximately 20% of human beings will be willing to grant tyrants unilateral respect which is not reciprocated, but 80% of humans will not. In order for tyrants to hold power, they must figure out how to deal with the 80% of the population who will not ever be willing to go along with it. This makes a secret national police force (an "intelligency agency") into a requirement for ongoing tyranny.* No secret national police force is required for ongoing freedom, as only public police with only local authority are needed in any given nation in order to maintain nationwide peace. We should return to the situation where the only federal police in existence are the US Marshals -- so that we can keep tabs on federal policing in the US. Recent events in the US prove this beyond reasonable doubt. If there were only US Marshals, there'd be only one place to look when it is discovered that tyranny is being attempted. It'd be easy to uncover plots of tyrants, if there were only US Marshals. By allowing our federal government to have many different kinds of cops (Alphabet Soup cops), it creates a Whack-a-Mole situation where you never know where the next threat to our internal peace will arise. This extra danger is unnecessary. ----------- *Liberty-disrespecting Progressive leaders -- e.g., T. Roosevelt (FBI), H. Truman (CIA), GW Bush (DHS) -- are the only kinds of leaders which expand US intelligence agencies, agencies that "track and trace" innocent civilians, even without a warrant declaring a suspected crime. This is because they seek unchecked power, and a secret national police is required for that. By continuing to expand the kinds of federal police, they make it easy for tyrants to rise. -----------

1.4 million set up to die from the Response to COVID-19 A recent report shows that actions taken by state governors during the year of 2020 will lead to the premature death of 1.4 million Americans over the next 20 years. That loss of American lives will be equivalent to 24 Vietnam Wars worth of unnecessary loss of life -- a version of 'negligent killing' unheard of in free nations. It is an unprecedented amount of unnecessary death. That amount of negligent killing of citizens has only ever occurred before in unfree nations.* -------- *Genghis Khan is rumored to have killed about 1.4 million -- by hand, without modern weapons -- in order to stop an uprising in Afghanistan at the height of the Mongolian Empire. Rwandan genocide is also in this ballpark, and killings were also by hand (individual killings). But there was no instance of this kind of thing in free nations. -------- Source THE LONG-TERM IMPACT OF THE COVID-19 UNEMPLOYMENT SHOCK ONLIFE EXPECTANCY AND MORTALITY RATES. Available:

This piece is hiliarious!
**Oxford University researchers have discovered the densest element yet known to science** The new element, Governmentium (symbol=Gv), has one neutron, 25 assistant neutrons, 88 deputy neutrons and 198 assistant deputy neutrons, giving it an atomic mass of 312. These 312 particles are held together by forces called morons, which are surrounded by vast quantities of lepton-like particles called pillocks. Since Governmentium has no electrons, it is inert. However, it can be detected, because it impedes every reaction with which it comes into contact. A tiny amount of Governmentium can cause a reaction that would normally take less than a second, to take from 4 days to 4 years to complete. Governmentium has a normal half-life of 2 to 6 years. It does not decay, but instead undergoes a reorganization in which a portion of the assistant neutrons and deputy neutrons exchange places. In fact, Governmentium's mass will actually increase over time, since each reorganization will cause more morons to become neutrons, forming isodopes. This characteristic of moron promotion leads some scientists to believe that Governmentium is formed whenever morons reach a critical concentration. This hypothetical quantity is referred to as a critical morass. When catalyzed with money, Governmentium becomes Administratium (symbol=Ad), an element that radiates just as much energy as Governmentium, since it has half as many pillocks but twice as many morons.
