Jaw-Dropping. 1980 Libertarian Platform

Holy sh:t.  See.  Here is easily verified, widely available information that backs up what I’ve been saying and will be saying about the Koch Brothers.  I believe don tRUMP is not an anomaly, but rather was a foreseeable outcome for the republiCon party. 

d. an end to tax-supported “mental health” propaganda campaigns and community “mental health” centers and programs; and

So, Charles Koch ran in 1980 for the White House as the Vice-Presidential Candidate for the LIEbertarian Party.  Read their holy fucking shit platform.  Then look around today.  After you finish puking, tell your friends.   

Read the whole awful thing here: https://lpedia.org/1984_National_Platform

And below are some selected quotes.  Not gonna add source link for each.  These are all from the above.

We support full restitution for all loss suffered by persons arrested, indicted, tried, imprisoned, or otherwise injured in the course of criminal proceedings against them that do not result in their conviction. When they are responsible, government police employees or agents should be liable for this restitution.

We accordingly oppose all “no-fault” insurance laws. which deprive the victim of the right to recover damages from those responsible in case of injury. We also support the right of the victim to pardon the criminal or wrongdoer, barring threats to the victim for this purpose. We applaud the growth of private adjudication of disputes by mutually acceptable judges.

Private Adjudication instead of trials.  Companies love that!

We support a change in rape laws so that cohabitation wwll no longer be a defense against a charge of rape.

Cohen used that defense for trump after a divorce.  you can’t rape your wife, he said.  I support this change.  That’s the big problem.  There are plenty of really cool things in here, like legalizing drugs.   But some, really, really dark shit, too.

We oppose the current practice of forced jury duty and favor all-volunteer juries. In addition, we urge the assertion of the common law right of juries to judge not only the facts of criminal cases but also the justice of the law. Juries may hold all criminal laws invalid that are, in their opinion, unjust or oppressive, and find all persons guiltless of violating such laws.

Jim Crow, anyone?

b. an immediate end to the spending of tax money for any program of psychiatric or psychological research or treatment;

Guess what, motherfuckers?  The government did what you wanted.  They cut back on mental health funding.  Guess what the result was?  I think a lot more prisoners for the private prisons you champion.  Asshats.

Screw it.  Made it about 25% of the way through reading it and I’m too disgusted to finish.   

I guess they missed the irony of it being the platform 4 years before 1984.  

Please share this.  This is not a conspiracy theory with threads and hints and shit pulled from everywhere.   Reading this fucking platform.  Look around you.  Puke.  Puke some more.  Then, Share with your friends and families.  

But, wait!  There is much more:

This is from Bernie Sanders!

Here are just a few excerpts of the Libertarian Party platform that David Koch ran on in 1980:

“We urge the repeal of federal campaign finance laws, and the immediate abolition of the despotic Federal Election Commission.”

“We favor the abolition of Medicare and Medicaid programs.”

“We oppose any compulsory insurance or tax-supported plan to provide health services, including those which finance abortion services.”

“We also favor the deregulation of the medical insurance industry.”

“We favor the repeal of the fraudulent, virtually bankrupt, and increasingly oppressive Social Security system. Pending that repeal, participation in Social Security should be made voluntary.”

“We propose the abolition of the governmental Postal Service. The present system, in addition to being inefficient, encourages governmental surveillance of private correspondence.  Pending abolition, we call for an end to the monopoly system and for allowing free competition in all aspects of postal service.”

“We oppose all personal and corporate income taxation, including capital gains taxes.”

“We support the eventual repeal of all taxation.”

“As an interim measure, all criminal and civil sanctions against tax evasion should be terminated immediately.”

“We support repeal of all law which impede the ability of any person to find employment, such as minimum wage laws.”

“We advocate the complete separation of education and State.  Government schools lead to the indoctrination of children and interfere with the free choice of individuals. Government ownership, operation, regulation, and subsidy of schools and colleges should be ended.”

“We condemn compulsory education laws … and we call for the immediate repeal of such laws.”

“We support the repeal of all taxes on the income or property of private schools, whether profit or non-profit.”

“We support the abolition of the Environmental Protection Agency.”

“We support abolition of the Department of Energy.”

“We call for the dissolution of all government agencies concerned with transportation, including the Department of Transportation.”

“We demand the return of America’s railroad system to private ownership. We call for the privatization of the public roads and national highway system.”

“We specifically oppose laws requiring an individual to buy or use so-called “self-protection” equipment such as safety belts, air bags, or crash helmets.”

“We advocate the abolition of the Federal Aviation Administration.”

“We advocate the abolition of the Food and Drug Administration.”

“We support an end to all subsidies for child-bearing built into our present laws, including all welfare plans and the provision of tax-supported services for children.”

We oppose all government welfare, relief projects, and ‘aid to the poor’ programs. All these government programs are privacy-invading, paternalistic, demeaning, and inefficient. The proper source of help for such persons is the voluntary efforts of private groups and individuals.”

“We call for the privatization of the inland waterways, and of the distribution system that brings water to industry, agriculture and households.”

“We call for the repeal of the Occupational Safety and Health Act.”

“We call for the abolition of the Consumer Product Safety Commission.”

“We support the repeal of all state usury laws.
