One Reason I Despise The GOP

July 2014 – Springfield Illinois Board of Elections. Battle-hardened Libertarians on one side, and paid Republican interns on the other

 

Reasons I despise the GOP stroll down memory lane…

Spent 5 days defending Libertarian signatures from Republicans trying to disenfranchise the will of over 40,000 Illinois voters who signed our ballot petitions.

To add insult to injury, the GOP falsely accused me of two felonies, forgery and perjury.

The GOP sent private investigators openly carrying firearms to the residences of people who signed our petitions and tried to intimidate them into testifying that our circulators used fraud to obtain their signatures.

This tactic made national news. You can read one account from the link below…

Did Armed GOP Thugs Try To Keep Libertarian Party off Illinois Ballot?

That is some Soviet-style gangsta shizzle for sure.
Freedom can never fully live until both major parties die.

 

That is Government

“To be GOVERNED is to be watched, inspected, spied upon, directed, law-driven, numbered, regulated, enrolled, indoctrinated, preached at, controlled, checked, estimated, valued, censured, commanded, by creatures who have neither the right nor the wisdom nor the virtue to do so.

To be GOVERNED is to be at every operation, at every transaction noted, registered, counted, taxed, stamped, measured, numbered, assessed, licensed, authorized, admonished, prevented, forbidden, reformed, corrected, punished. It is, under the pretext of public utility, and in the name of the general interest, to be placed under contribution, drilled, fleeced, exploited, monopolized, extorted from, squeezed, hoaxed, robbed; then, at the slightest resistance, the first word of complaint, to be repressed, fined, vilified, harassed, hunted down, abused, clubbed, disarmed, bound, choked, imprisoned, judged, condemned, shot, deported, sacrificed, sold, betrayed; and to crown all, mocked, ridiculed, derided, outraged, dishonored.

That is government; that is its justice; that is its morality.”
