    Two Party Lock-in

    Freedom To Vote Act: "To expand Americans’ access to the ballot box and reduce the influence of big money in politics, and for other purposes"

    The "Freedom to Vote Act" is presented as a voting rights initiative to rollback evil state-level Republican voter discrimination laws, but in reality it's the other side of the two-pronged assault on third parties and diversity of candidate choice. The unspoken objective is to further duopoly lockdown using GOP gerrymandering and voter restrictions to escalate dozens of restrictions/stipulations on ballot access (candidate funding). The Act centralises campaign financing (including public funds) with big party committees, inevitably excluding challenges from within (e.g. Bernie Sanders).

    Under H.R. 1, wealthy donors can effectively circumvent the candidate contribution limit by giving to the party committees directly and have them funnel up to $300 million forwarded candidates, effectively raising the amount big donors can contribute to a candidate to more than $115,000 in a year. H.R. 1 program would replace the 1:1 match in public funding with a 6:1 match, but simultaneously increase the minimum amount of donations (to get matched) by 500% to a minimum of $25,000 in each of 20 states. It would also increase the minimum number of contributions to reach it by 625%.

  • Third Parties May Disappear From Ballot Under Freedom to Vote Act Provision (2-Oct-2021)
  • "Removing the general election public funding grant, H.R. 1 also eliminates the other existing opportunity for minor parties to benefit under the current public financing law, where any party that receives between 5% and 25% would get a pro-rated portion of the public funding in the next election that the major party candidates do. Greens and Libertarians have long argued that a vote for their candidates helps them to get to 5%. Raising the primary election matching funds threshold helps ensure only a limited number of anointed candidates qualify for it, to eliminate those pesky others who stay in primary race too long."

  • Ballot status and presidential primary matching funds (28-Jul-2021)
  • More on H.R.1/S.1: The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly (12-Mar-2021)
  • Duopoly angle: Annotated Guide to the For The People Act 2021 (20-Jan-2021)
  • "The Act removes voters’ ability to fund 100% clean money and grassroots campaigns via matching funds, while increasing the role of big money in elections, and limiting voter choice to vote for other than major party candidates — the latter which itself is a de facto form of voter suppression, by removing a positive incentive for many voters to vote. Masters of lesser-of-evilism, Democrats have set up the Devil’s bargain in H.R. 1 — accept a further entrenched duopoly in exchange for your right to vote.

  • Robert Michels: The Iron Law of Oligarchy
  • Jacob Weisberg: Cozy Relationships Between Press, Law, Academic and Government [Authority]
  • New Republic [Centre-Left Corporate Democrat Magazine; mouthpiece of Democratic Party credentialed professionals] fretted about the "increasingly cozy relationships between press, law, academia and government" that he saw there. "There’s rarely been a time when the governing elites in so many fields were made up of such a tight, hermetic and incestuous clique. The Clinton circle [and its successor like the Obamas on Martha's Vineyard] has a pronounced class consciousness that tells them they’re not just lucky to be here. They’re running things because they’re the best."
  • Migrant Economics
    Do immigrants reduces native born wages? Do migrants cost _us_ money?
  • "No. Immigrants almost never reduce native born wages, except sometimes briefly during the peak or trough of recession. In recessions the net fiscal impact moves back to an overall net positive soon after."
  • "No. Migrants don't tend to cost the country money, except at the very start (rescue and housing) and/or if the migrant is subsequently deported before becoming a taxpayer. Once paying taxes, migrants like immigrants are net positive. Benefit to national fiscal balance over a lifetime is very positive, in part because immigrants don't need public spending during childhood so spend much higher percentage of their lives as taxpayers."

    CORPORATE CAPITALISM

    “The corporate mantra is to avoid paying taxes, exploit consumers & workers at every opportunity; to squeeze the most profit from the least outlay possible. Corporate interests have pacified conservatives with money and liberals with meaningless woke jargon. Meanwhile, corporate capitalism does nothing to improve society in any form unless it profits, or costs nothing. By default this means a stratified society of winners and consumers and losers.”

    NEO-FEUDAL LINEAGE

    “It’s going to take something more than a profit motive to give the losers a humane future but we can’t look to business to show humanity when our politicians have been corrupted. The political class must be made accountable. The ruling elites must not be allowed to enrich themselves at the cost of a fair and just society; not if we want to build a world where ‘all men are created equal’ is more than an empty tagline for a neo-feudal lineage plutarchy.”
