Attribute to L. Neil Smith’s The Libertarian Enterprise

I have written about this subject several times before, starting ’way back in the Dolly Dumbass days of the Million Moron March. It has become clear by now that disgusting vermin of the same political stripe as Bolshevik Biden and Communist Kamala are scheming with their Marxist-Leninist accomplices in BLM, Anti-fa, By Any Means Necessary, and other squiggly multi-legged things you find under a damp log, to deprive the American Productive Class of everything they have striven so hard to achieve to make life livable and decent and rewarding.

Their plan is to (1) stop enforcing the law, allowing every foul, obscene, repulsive, destructive, and murderous act to go unpunished and, effectively, encouraged.

(2) They want to abolish the police and to cut enormous swatches out of peacekeeping budgets and resources in every part of the country to destroy peace and civil order.

(3) They seek to release violent criminals back into the streets without bail, to threaten domestic tranquility.

(4) Most significant and telling is that they are absolutely gagging (as they have been since the 1960s) to seize the real Machinery of Freedom (sorry, Dave), the physical means of self-preservation that is guaranteed to you by your United States Constitution.

And (5) they want to prosecute you for being prepared to protect your life, liberty, and property with it.

In sum, these enemies of the American people want to leave you bound and helpless, completely defenseless before their puppet killer-mobs.

I recognize what this crap is when it’s rubbed in my face, and so do you. This is Mao Zedong’s “Massacre of the Landlords”, American-style. When individuals who work for a living, who own homes and businesses, and who raise families, are systematically denied every possible means of self-defense, history shows that they will inevitably be slaughtered. And that’s exactly what the Democrats want most.

Those Stalinist mouthpieces love denouncing the personal arms that they hate and loathe and despise and fear so much —and that promise to utterly wreck their evil plans—as “Weapons of War”. And they are absolutely correct. War it is. It was the left who decided to declare war against the United States Constitution, war against capitalism, war against history, war against free speech, war against individual liberty, and war against the American people themselves.

Today’s “Democratic Communists”, to correct Sandy Cortez’s comical eumphemism, are cut from exactly the same rotting cloth as the mindless hordes who charged American forces defending Korean freedom. They are, for all practical purposes, the North Vietnamese Army. They are no different from their ethical cousins, the Nazis, whom my Dad helped to bomb into well-deserved oblivion.

They are the mortal enemies of everything that decent Americans cherish, have killed for, died for, and paid for. Against them “Weapons of War” are entirely appropriate, exactly as the Founding Fathers foresaw. Tell me, would you take advice about “sensible gun control” from the North Koreans, from the communist Vietnamese, or from Hitler’s Nazis, all of whom would benefit from seeing Americans disarmed and helpless? Then why take advice from their intellectual and moral siblings, Kamala Harris, Joseph Biden, Robert Francis “Cultural Appropriation” O’Rourke, Nancy Pelosi, Charles Schumer, Adam Schiff, Eric Swalwell, the despicable George Soros, or any of their numberless, traitorous, nauseating ilk?

Make no mistake. I know many decent people who, for one reason another, consider themselves Democrats. Some of them are good friends of mine, of long standing. Why the hell are they Democrats? Statistics tell us that it’s usually because their parents were Democrats. But this is not your parents’ Democrat Party, my friends, and, just because my father used to put ketchup on his macaroni and cheese doesn’t mean that I have to do it (although it took me thirty-five years to learn that lesson).

Democrat leaders believe in nothing. All they do is steal and destroy. More importantly, none of my friends who are rank-and-file Democrats would send murderous armed thugs to my door to ransack my home and confiscate everything their masters don’t approve of (like the T-bone steaks in my freezer or my collection of Bettie Page photographs.

Understand me: I don’t give a flaming fuck what you call yourself, Democrat, Republican, Libertarian, Flat-Earthian. I don’t give a flaming fuck what color your skin is. I don’t give a flaming fuck where you or your ancestors are originally from. I don’t give a flaming fuck what religion—if any—you practice. I don’t give a flaming fuck what gender you claim to be. All I really care about is how you think and how you feel about the Bill of Rights which every American ought to venerate, and the Zero Aggression Principle, which is the very heart and soul of the libertariann philosophy.

I do care about the utter necessity to save Western Civilization by purging our culture of Chinese Communist surrogates, cleaning Mugwumps like Willard the Rat Romney out of the GOP, scourging the collectivist slime from the Democrat and Libertarian Parties. Vote only for true individualists who respect the Constitution.

Prepare yourself now by reading Ayn Rand’s Anthem to see the world they want to impose on us. Read Sun Tzu’s The Art of War, Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals, and Donald Trump’s The Art of the Deal. Then read my 1980 novel The Probability Broach for a glimpse of a society and a future worth fighting for—they don’t want you to, and they’ve made it as difficult as possible.

As my daughter puts it, “Where We Go 1 We Go All.”
