DEMOCRAT INTERFERENCE IN FLORIDA ELECTION VOTE COUNT

JOSEPH STALIN – “IT’S NOT THE PEOPLE WHO VOTE THAT COUNT, IT’S THE PEOPLE WHO COUNT THE VOTES.”

Russian influence vs. Democrat Party corruption. What is happening in Florida is not an attempt to “influence” how people will vote. It is interference after the votes have been cast. Politicians, main stream media, political action committees, you and me try to influence people’s votes. It is part of the political process. Tampering with votes after the fact is illegal.

In Palm Beach County, Democrats Argue To Count Votes Case By Non-Citizens, by D.D. McAllister, at thefederalist.com. If you follow the rule of law, this is simple. Someone who is not a citizen, is not allowed to vote. If they do vote, their vote doesn’t count.

OTHER ELECTION THOUGHTS

The Midterm Election Showed Why We Need More States, by Tho Bishop, at mises.org. Excerpt from the article: “….there is one election night conclusion we can be certain about: America needs more states……While the idea may seem racical, smaller political units are the best way of addressing some of the growing cultural divides that thee media loves to talk about.”

“Of course none of these structural changes will help solve the issues America faces without an ideological change in favor of free markets and individual liberty. Still….it is worthwhile to question the physical size of political units in the US.

Three Reasons Why Elections Don’t Matter, at theburningplatform.com. This is a great summation of what happened in the mid-term election. The three reasons listed why elections don’t matter are: 1) The swamp will never be drained. 2) The inflating debt bubble. 3) Technocracy rises: Big brother cometh.  Although I agree the three reasons are difficult obstacles to overcome, elections do matter. But as the article above states: “Nothing will help solve the issues America faces without an ideological change in favor of free markets and individual liberty.” It takes time to change individuals minds about how the world really works. Especially when the the education system, the main stream media, and our cultural and Hollywood elites have been pushing socialist central planning and political correctness for decades. Change will come one of two ways. Ballots or bullets. Change by ballots has a much lower cost but it takes time. Remember where we were in 2009? Nobody thought then that we would be where we are today. And it has been just 10 years later. Change happens one step at a time.

Nine Years Into Common Core, Test Scores Are Down, indoctrination Up, by Joy Pullmann, at thefederalist.com. The sad thing about this is that it will take a lot of effort by parents to get rid of Common Core. Why? Because teaching our kids is purely political and has been for over 50 years.

Must Reads For The Week 10/7/18

ECONOMICS

Fed Chair Powell Hints He May Soon Crash The Market, at zerohedge.com. The Fed created the housing bubble with its printed money and below market interest rates. When their bubble crashed, their cure was the same medicine that caused the problem in the first place (pump more money into the system and zero percent interest rates).  The cure for a crash is to allow interest rates to be set by the market and quit printing money. Let the correction (recession) take place. Their policies didn’t allow the liquidation of the bubble activities to take place. Now they are attempting to slowly get rid of the accumulated bubble activities through incremental interest rate increases. They are walking a high wire and their safety net is to blame Trump for any crash. Read here: The Fed’s QE Unwind Reaches $285 Billion, at zerohedge.com.

US Gross National Debt Soars $1.27 Trillion In Fiscal 2018 hits $21.5 Trillion, at zerohedge.com. It doesn’t matter if the D’s or the R’s have control of the purse strings. The debt keeps going up. But the Federal Government couldn’t accumulate this amount of debt unless The Federal Reserve printed money to purchase US bonds. How can this possibly be paid back?

Mall Vacancies Hit 7 Year High As Rents Plunge, at zerohedge.com. Using printed money and low-interest rates caused too many Malls to be built. This is an example of a bubble activity. The laws of economics are trying to liquidate the malls which are not profitable. Will the Fed allow it to happen?

Austrians vs. Market Monetarists On The Housing Bubble, by Robert Murphy, at mises.org. Great article explaining how monetary pumping through artificially low-interest rates creates unsustainable bubbles that ultimately crash.

Silicon Valley Socialism, by Peter Klein, at mises.org.  Excerpt from the article: “Libertarians oppose regulation, but also oppose censorship and politically correct culling of opinion. Silicon Valley used to be a hotbed of libertarian thought, a place where innovation mattered more than government. Today, companies like Twitter and Facebook serve as de facto editors, banning users like Alex Jones for “wrong-think.” Google dominates search, but may steer search results. And Amazon serves nefarious clients like the NSA with its cloud infrastructure. And all of them employ plenty of lobbyists to avoid the kind of government anti-trust suit Microsoft faced nearly 20 years ago.

Surge In New York City Taxi Driver Suicides Has The City Talking, at zerohedge.com. Taxi driver suicides are up because the drivers purchase price of their taxi medallions has collapsed. Uber and Lyft are getting blamed for driving down the value of these medallions. But the reason the price of the medallions were so high in the first place is because NYC government put a limit on the number of medallions. Limiting the supply drove up the price of these medallions. The Government created a medallion bubble. If the free market would have been allowed to coordinate the supply of cabs with the demand of the riders there would be no suicide problem for taxi drivers. There would be no such thing as taxi medallions in the first place. Now Government wants to step in and help. How do you think that will work out?

Economics Everywhere, Politics Nowhere: Switzerland’s Six Pointers Towards Hope For Western Civilization, by Hunter Hastings, at centerforindividualism.org. Maybe we should look at Switzerland’s success as an example of what individual freedom, decentralized government, and free markets produce. Instead of looking at countries like Venezuela to see what socialism produces.
