Lew Rockwell: "The Republican Party Is Pure Evil"

"Now they are proposing quasi-Obamacare. But it only makes sense, since Obamacare itself is a version of the Gingrich-Heritage GOP plan proposed against Hillarycare. The Republicans never diminish government. Indeed, since Nixon, they are the most statist party, despite their lying rhetoric."

I don't know if they are PURE EVIL, strictly speaking, but...

... as for 99% ROTTEN or BRAIN DEAD...

(note the all caps)

... I guess that's by now quite... plausible.

Euphemism? Ah, here you are!

"Cyril" pronounced "see real". I code stuff.


"To study and not think is a waste. To think and not study is dangerous." -- Confucius

Republican party has been evil since

Lincoln. Democratic party has been evil since Woodrow Wilson.

It's just one statist party trying to pretend to give a choice when it is no more of a choice than Coke or Pepsi. They are both cola drinks, after all.

"Hence, naturally enough, my symbol for Hell is something like the bureaucracy of a police state or the office of a thoroughly nasty business concern." ~~C.S. Lewis
Love won! Deliverance from Tyranny is on the way! Col. 2:13-15

Democratic party and Republican party

have been evil long before lincoln and wilson. They both supported slavery at one point in time.

Even the "great emancipator" lincoln didn't want the black man to have equal status as the white man.

Yes, you are

correct about Lincoln. In his debates with Douglas, he stated "I will say then that I am not, nor ever have been, in favor of bringing about in any way the social and political equality of the white and black races--that I am not nor ever have been in favor of making voters or jurors of Negroes, nor of qualifying them to hold office, nor to intermarry with white people; and I will say in addition to this that there is a physical difference between the white and black races which I believe will forever forbid the two races living together on terms of social and political equality. And inasmuch as they cannot so live, while they do remain together there must be the position of superior and inferior, and I as much as any other man in favor of having the superior position assigned to the white race."
This isn't just some liberal fabricated quote, I saw this etched in stone on a huge monument in my birth town in Quincy, Illinois town square where a Lincoln-Douglas debate was held.

He's getting closer

Voting is even purer evil... thinking that if you have a large enough group gives you the right to force your rules on everyone else is evil.

What if all of your neighbors voted to take your car... would that make it morally right? And then they throw you in a cage when you try and stop them because they show you a piece of paper they scribbled on that says it is a "law" they made up.

You are the problem if you think voting is gives you the right to do anything, be it republican, democrat, libertarian, whatever group, doesn't matter:


Good points! It has been said that democracy is akin to two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for dinner. But a republic features a well-armed lamb contesting the election results!

Are you a POT or a PET - Person Embracing Tyranny?

hey, I like that.

voting is evil inherently due to the flaw that you are symbolically and literally giving permission for people to force rules on you and your neighbors.

Government is funded

By a private foreign counterfeiter. That counterfeiter digitizes American dollars (uses the counterfeit money) to buy and own everything that has anything to do with elections and sold out pollutions er politicians.

The Rothschild family has used counterfeiting and extortion by false national debt and extorted theft tax collections.

These parties are simply the most greedy immoral sold out puppet hogs wallowing at the trough to self enrich. These puppet pigs were hand picked for their lack of morality or concern for others.

Of course it is pure evil. Pure evil to use counterfeit money creation to create false national debt to enslave on the basis of collections to pay the fictitious debt.

Its the greedy self enriching pigs of the political party with their propaganda media liar polls and Rigged electronic voting that perpetuate the Rothschild lie.


Truth in your written word!

You have the root cause of our problem right here!


The solution

Do not attend debt slave areas, corporate owned is Rothschild owned. Buy from individuals.

Do not use Rothschild debt slave money. Trust me gold or silver will be accepted as payment by individuals.

Self reliant and self defense.

Do not use the corporate anything as much as possible.

Grow you own if you can its much heather and better use of you time and efforts.

Every moment make known you claim to be a free individual by words and actions.

PS my anti false debt slaver philosophy includes the golden rule and the rules of the jungle.

There is a consistent pattern to politics on both sides.

They say one thing and do the opposite.

Bush opposed socialist government and yet presided over the largest increase in government benefits (until ObamaCare, which was in fact a Republican plan) known as Medicare Part D. Obama claimed to want peace and end the wars and has increased the drone program and wars by 1000%.

Why is that? Simple. The strongest opponents to what these people say is in the opposite party. So, if Bush preaches less government, Republicans give him a pass because he is their guy, so can get away with more government/taxes. If Obama says less war, his own party will give him a pass for being their own guy when he murders US citizens openly and increases the wars. And the other parties can't object because it's the things their own party was preaching for.

In other words. Assume the opposite of any candidate because that is the politically expedient approach.

It's all a grand game. The only way to win is to not play.

The Philosophy Of Liberty -

Lew paints with too broad a brush.

Only some people in the party are evil, a great many more are simply stupid, and then there's the growing libertarian wing of the party, which is neither evil nor stupid, and which Lew should wish success if he wants a free society anytime this century.

"Alas! I believe in the virtue of birds. And it only takes a feather for me to die laughing."

I'm sorry

but they are all evil and/or stupid on foreign policy, including alsoRand. Who made him a god to say what another sovereign country can and can't do? We have been the largest agressor in the last 60+ years and the only country to 'ever' use nuclear weapons and still do so, by bombing with DU laced weapons. Rand's foreign policy is predicated on the pressure by AIPAC and the evangelicals, as proven by his letter to Obama on Iran negotiations. He needs to be a 'man' like his father, and stand behind his convictions, and quit bowing to those who put another nation before our Republic. Sorry, Randbots, but the facts are the facts! It won't be long before Dr Paul has to go against Rand on foreign policy, and check him on his Zionist pandering positions, or throw his lifelong platform out the window.

Rockwell has said

that trying to change the GOP is like trying to change the mob. Of course any success for liberty he applauds.

You might consider reading one of his books:
The Left, The Right, The State
Speaking Of Liberty
and the brand new: Fascism versus Capitalism.

And that's a nice slogan...

...but it ain't true. We have already changed the GOP, by direct political participation. And we'll continue to do so (unless everybody adopts Lew's attitude and gives up on politics). It's amusing to hear someone denying the usefulness of political action on the Daily Paul...considering this website would not even exist if it weren't for Ron Paul's campaigns for president. I might add, had it not been for those same political campaigns, hardly anyone would know who Lew Rockwell is outside a narrow circle of old guard libertarians.

"Alas! I believe in the virtue of birds. And it only takes a feather for me to die laughing."

nobody was a bigger supporter

of ron paul's campaigns than lew rockwell. his website was alive with ron paul news and lew was on every show he could get booked to sing his praises. and it continues, he was just a guest on ron's channel. both men realized the thrust of those runs, the real goal was to spread the libertarian message of a mind your own biz foreign policy, personal freedom and sound money backed by austrian economics. and they have been wildly successful. ron paul's reputation and message is being welcomed and spread all over the world. again. it's an intellectual revolution and everyone really interested will do their part to win it. i wish you luck with your takeover but allow me and others to be skeptical
of the controllers who will do everything and anything to have their way.

Which makes his anti-politics advice all the more puzzling...


"Alas! I believe in the virtue of birds. And it only takes a feather for me to die laughing."

i guess you find

In case you couldn't tell by the 3 goats-head pentagram stars...

...that are on the new GOP symbol...

Yes, the GOP at the top is run by Luciferians & Masons, like everything else.

Michael Nystrom's picture

It is weird...

That somewhere along the way, the stars on the GOP logo got turned upside down. I assume that is what you're talking about. One cannot deny that they used to be right side up.

And the inverted pentagon is a symbol of the occult

I can't say that I know what is going on there. Just making observations.

He's the man.

not exactly

The five points of the pentagram represent the four classical elements of earth, water, fire, and air, and the fifth point represents the element of spirit. Thus, a right side up pentagram represents the spirit above the four elements, or the spirit over matter. It also represents a man, with four limbs and a head. An upside down pentagram is then supposed to represent the four elements above spirit, or the triumph of matter over spirit. It also represents the horns of a goat, an ancient symbol of virility and desires of the flesh.

While the pentagram symbol is quite ancient, I believe this whole right side up vs. upside down thing is a pretty recent invention that was first promulgated by Eliphas Levi in the 1850's. He is the guy most famous for his Baphomet image that people have posted on the DP before. The upside down pentagram was later adapted by the Church of Satan as their symbol, because they are materialists and value the material world over the spiritual. They believe talks of spirit are used to confuse and oppress mankind.

What a trip

I only joined the pubs

to vote for my wife and daughter as Ron Paul delegates in Louisiana. I have used the same term.

Wouldn't say pure evil, but

Wouldn't say pure evil, but the sentiment is right on.

Happy to say that the Republican Party here in Cherokee County Georgia has made some strides towards Liberty. Ron Paul Republicans have almost eery seat on the committee.

That said, Rep Scot Turner mentioned that Obamacare needs to go so the Republicans can 'replace' it. http://www.cherokeetribune.com/view/full_story/24377193/arti... I suggested that we replace it with 'Nothing'. Gov't needs to get out of Health Care. If it isn't Destruction or Taxes, gov't does a bad job of implementing it.

Rep Michael Caldwell is a cosponsor. HB707 does what several other States are doing, it 'virtually' nullifies the ACA by not helping implement it. However, in lieu of Lew's article, I wonder if it helps bring in the RepubliCare Act which I imagine will be some sort of Single Payer Lite.

In other words...

different side of the same coin.

two parties...hardly.

The law cannot make a wicked person virtuous…God’s grace alone can accomplish such a thing.

There is no duration defined in the Oath

Lew Rockwell says:

A lot of people have asked me why I do not vote.

1) Voting is the sacrament of the civil religion. I’m a political atheist.
2) Not voting bugs the regime, and no wonder. Such abstinence, like not complying in other ways, weakens them. What if they held an election and nobody came?
3) It’s a pain in the neck.
4) Your vote doesn’t count, unless the election is decided by a single vote. You are far more likely to be killed on the way to the polls than to have that happen.
5) The candidates itch to rule others. There is no lesser evil.
6) Politics is not our salvation. Indeed, the whole system is corrupt from top to bottom.

I understand

why some people choose not to vote, and respect their decision.

For me, though, I believe not voting/remaining silent - implies consent. I'll continue to vote, but only for vetted Liberty Republicans and Libertarians.

The Republican Party won't receive one red cent from me. Any monetary support I choose to give will go directly to individual Liberty candidates.

When a true genius appears in the world, you may know him by this sign: that the dunces are all in confederacy against him. ~J. Swift

I have several objections

"Not voting bugs the regime, and no wonder. Such abstinence, like not complying in other ways, weakens them. What if they held an election and nobody came?"

If the masses stopped voting, that would bug the regime, that would undermine its legitimacy, sure. But if a handful of libertarians stop voting? That doesn't bug the regime at all. That delights them. That means they have no opposition.

And, by the way, if your strategy is to persuade the masses not to vote, thereby causing the regime to lose legitimacy and collapse...well that's an idea, but if it's possible to persuade people not to vote, then it's possible to persuade them to vote the right way too, as we're trying to do.

"Your vote doesn’t count, unless the election is decided by a single vote."

Strawman. Of course your own single vote won't affect anything, everyone knows that, and no one's claiming otherwise. But that's irrelevant. Political action is about trying to persuade other people to vote a certain way, and that can be effective. How do you think the establishment maintains its power? It uses media and other means of persuation to get people to vote the way it wants. We are trying to do the same thing. That's what politics is, Lew, so you're Capt. Obvious remark about a single vote being pointless is...pointless.

"There is no lesser evil"

O really? So, Ron Paul was no better than John McCain in 2008, or Mitt Romney in 2012? Rand Paul, Justin Amash, Mike Lee, Thomas Massie...they're no better than, say, Lindsey Graham or Peter King? Reeeeeally?

"Politics is not our salvation. Indeed, the whole system is corrupt from top to bottom."

And not voting and not participating will change that how?
