Election 2013 Results

Commie pinko Bill de Blasio elected mayor of New York City, in landslide.

Judas Christie re-elected Governor of New Jersey, in landslide.

Bottom line: America is nowhere near ready to be libertarian.

Find your small libertarian groups, that is all you have.


  1. The Terry McAuliffe vote shows that even though Obama subsidizes the financial elite, lies to us, spies on us and is really good at killing people (which is now all out in the open), his base could not care less.

    Sarvis: I went to Mason mostly because they are nearby and have a strong free market bent to it. I’m not into the whole Austrian type, strongly libertarian economics, I like more mainstream economics and would have been happy to go elsewhere [as well]

    Did Sparvis get so many votes precisely because he was not a real libertarian?.

  2. I don't know about that. Just look at how few people voted. Seems more people voted for the NAP by not voting than gave their consent to be governed by voting. Sounds pretty libertarian to me.

  3. People like slavery to government.

  4. Although I agree that America is not ready for libertarianism, I would not use elections in NYC and NJ as a barometer for the libertarian state of the nation.

  5. I think you're kidding yourself if you really believe that a population's lack of education of the issues and apathy toward voting is any indication of the NAP in action. Put something on the ballot that actually directly would benefit them and I'm sure they'd show up in droves.

    Also, is going to the polls to vote against a tax increase that will be levied if the law passes really non-libertarian or a violation of the NAP? I don't think so. It seems to me like it would have been the first Non Aggressive action a person could take.

  6. So from now on,
    any lefty/statist affiliated group can donate to a Libertarian candidate and that Libertarian candidate will effectively be nuetralized.
    Sad but...............Brilliant.

  7. "Find your small libertarian groups, that is all you have."

    Just getting ready to post an ad for a "libertarian accountant" with responses directed to a PO Box & temp. e-mail.

  8. As a libertarian I know that you are well versed enough in history to understand that when empires near their final days, they don't all of a sudden recognize the importance of personal liberty. As I think Reagan said many years ago, "the more the plans fail, the more the planners plan". Anyone that does planning for a living knows that control over the variables is the key to successful planning. So I expect that as the plans fail, the desire to control the variables (you and me) will increase exponentially. All they need to do is follow the European model of making people dependent on government for their survival, and the people will accept just about anything since they see government's survival synonymous to their own.

  9. Well, you have pointed out what is seen. But what about what isn't seen?

    How many didn't vote in the elections you mentioned or do not care about the results? How many people willfully ignored laws and regs yesterday? How many people actually self directed their lives or made their own decisions contra the official organs that are supposed to dominate our lives? Or how many participated in the expanding black (free) market sector? Almost half of all eligible workers do not officially work perhaps some are involved in unofficial exchange of some sort?

    If you go by the established political narratives that everything revolves around elections, party politics and surveys, you going to think the glass is half empty. Look at the unseen, and perhaps its half full?

  10. "Democracy is the theory that the common people know what they want, and deserve to get it good and hard."
