ARE POLITICIANS OUR ‘PROTECTORS’ OR ULTIMATE FREE RIDERS? TIME TO VOTE NOTA AND GET RID OF ALL BLOODSUCKING POLITICAL PARASITES?

TIME TO VOTE NOTA AND GET RID OF ALL BLOODSUCKING POLITICAL PARASITES?


Think about the percentage of GDP wasted to support parasitic political free riders of all stripes whose income at least partially depends directly or indirectly on the corrupt cronyism-riddled political process that produces absolutely nothing other than wars, economic dependency, elite authority versus free market producer societies, and a multitude of degrees of misery and slavery.

Yep, get elected, be part of the political process, delude yourself with artificial power peer approval, and reap the perks that go with power like hot dogs and beer go with baseball.

Do you think that is not a very thoughtful approach to achieving freedom? and freedom from what? Well, maybe freedom from the need to embrace the rigors of the free market while diluting freedoms for the rest of us?

Now, who is fooling whom? The political process and politicians are explicitly the problem, not the solution, which will come first and foremost from the free market.

Boy Did We Sell The Voters a Bill of Freedom Goods!

The sole redeeming values of the political process are education, planting seeds of freedom, and possibly a mop-up role to dismantle Big Brother, but only after the free market does the heavy lifting. Look to the free market for freedom from political parasites.

Is the LP well on its way to becoming the lesser of three evils third leg of a terrible triopoly? If so, what should we change to get the LP pointed back to the vision and mission of the healthy, growing, and maturing broader Libertarian movement: Freedom, Nothing More, Nothing Less, For All People IN OUR LIFETIMES?

Now, the burning question is: How will Libertarian politicians respond? Stay tuned and take notes before you decide whether to vote NOTA as a way to stop enabling cronyism-prone corruptible politicians.

Giddy About Freedom As We Do About Politics?

NEBREXIT, Secession-lite Movement To Establish Nebraska As A Legal Nullification Sanctuary From Big Brother

in Activism/Information/News/Opinion/Politics/Poor Pratt's Almanack
NEBR*EXIT secession-lite Nebraska legal nullification sanctuary to get Big Brother's attention.

Building on the success of BREXIT, Britain’s secession from the European Union, today a new movement is born in the ‘colonies’.

Welcome to NEBREXIT (pronounced Nee*BREXIT), or NEBR*EXIT (Nebraska Exit) to make the nomenclature more explicit.

Link to the brand-spanking new NebrExit Facebook page:

There is nothing like the threat of secession to get the attention of Big Brother.

The first step is to float the idea of creating a secession-lite legal sanctuary in the state of Nebraska where we decide which federal regulations we will honor and which we will nullify, similar to jury nullification.

Will this lead to a sovereign free state of Nebraska? Hard to say, but the more important issue is the need to reverse the accelerating growth trend of Big Brother.

Despite heroic efforts of freedom seekers in Nebraska and elsewhere, we are still hurtling out of control in the wrong direction toward mud-hut Socialism, poverty, misery and conformity.

A fresh localization effort is needed to point the needle back toward freedom.

Let’s think outside the box on how to leverage an NEBREXIT movement to put us back on the roads to freedom, nothing more, nothing less, for all people IN OUR LIFETIMES.

Is Dr. Fauci Right? Vaccine Panacea For Covid-19 Or Just Another Smoke And Mirrors Big Bucks Boondoggle For Big Pharma And Big Brother?

Vaccine Panacea For Covid-19 Or Big Pharma and Big Brother Boondoggle?

Will Covid-19 Coronavirus vaccines be any better than flu vaccines with their 10-20% efficacy and high death rates?

Why are there no vaccines for other Corona viruses like the common cold?

Vulnerable people die from Corona common cold-induced pneumonia all the time. Not enough bucks for Big Pharma to take the risk in light of flu vaccine death rate failures?

Who is Dr. Fauci fooling? Will Covid-19 vaccines be any better than flu vaccines or will the big beneficiary be Big Pharma?

You can bet there is some high-level big bucks skulduggery going on within the FDA and CDC as Big Pharma players, lobbyists, and bureaucrats with approval authority go for the spoils with little regard for protecting our health.

What if a Covid-19 vaccine is not the panacea? Perhaps a wiser strategy would focus on TREATMENT and PREVENTATIVE health care.

Facts:

Health care professionals will be heavily involved in developing treatments and thus will be an effective check and balance on government and Big Pharma in treatment research.

Preventive medicine is estimated at only 7% of very expensive ACA Obamacare insurance-based ALLOPATHIC health care.

Preventative medicine is estimated at 70% of cash-basis health care with better outcomes at a fraction of the cost.

Who would you rather have calling the shots on treatment development:

1. Health care professionals?

2. Big Pharma?

3. Big Brother?

Let’s say you are aware of a possible or likely pandemic frequency uptick in the future. You realize that you will have to take charge of your health, particularly if you are vulnerable with preventable underlying conditions.

What preventive health care choices will you have and which will you choose that will allow you to take charge of your health instead of relying on government, with all its corruption, cronyism, and health care mismanagement and disinformation, to cover for you on managing your health?

1. Cash-basis health care with 70% preventive medicine with better outcomes at a fraction of the cost?

2. ACA Obamacare insurance-based allopathic health care with only 7% preventive medicine at outrageous economy and budget-busting expense?

Doesn’t sound like rocket science to me. How about you?

Immediate Across The Board Free Agency For All Big Brother Agencies And Programs. Bench Them Today Or Cut Them Loose To Compete, Flounder, Sink, Or Swim As Free Agents In The Free Market.

Free agency - Cut 'em loose to compete, flounder, sink, or swim as free agents in the free market

Today’s tipping point of egregious Covid-19 pandemic mismanagement dictates the necessity of instituting immediate across the board FREE AGENCY status for all federal agencies and programs.

Consider the benefits of free agency in light of unmitigated failures of the FDA and CDC during the Covid-19 pandemic that dramatically illustrate the destructive unintended consequence of all federal agencies and programs that proliferate due to the inability, legal license, and lack of government will power to balance the budget.

First, bench the FDA and CDC today, not tomorrow, before they can do more damage as we cope with and recover from the Corona pandemic. But don’t stop there.

In preparation for future pandemics and life after coercive non-competitive tyranny of the majority, cut all federal agencies and programs loose before they drown us in a tsunami of bureaucratic corruption and cronyism leading to Socialist bankruptcy.

Do us and and government authorities, agencies, and programs a huge favor by setting them free so they can compete, flounder, sink, or swim as free agents in merit-based free markets, the only true direct democracy where there no need to elect authoritarian leaders

In free markets, we voluntarily vote individually with our wallets and personal decisions in countless trillions of win-win, mutually-beneficial agreements and transactions every day.

Free markets do not foster coercive leaders by authority, electioneering cronyism, or dishonest political correctness. Why? Because they are not competitive. Collaborative competition is the name of the game in the free market.

The best of non-competitive governments fail in less than two or three hundred years due to cronyism-induced bankruptcy if not overthrown before then.

Contrast the stark fact of predictable government failures with the overwhelming evidence that free markets have never failed since internal and external tribal barter economics human action and decision-making evolved at the dawn of mankind.

Oppressive governments can force free markets into grey or black markets but free markets always recover and survive in spite of coercive government failures.

The fact that the human species continues to survive and thrive, despite the worst that governments and other institutional authorities can throw at us, is eloquent testimony of the durability and benefits of free markets that lift people out of poverty, misery, and slavery.

It occurs to me that human gravitation toward free markets and Golden Rule ‘personal governments’, used to define limits for personal behavior and social/economic relationships, are indelibly etched in our human psyche and DNA.

Now there is a challenge and gauntlet thrown down to incentivize scientific research. Prove my hypothesis wrong and come up with a better theory. Have at it, but ‘ends justifies means’ political correctness will not cut the scientific ‘mustard’ and are out of bounds.

In conclusion, there is a lot to be said for free agency as a remedy for out-of-control Big Brother counter productive bureaucracy overhead.
