Jason Stapleton Program: Progressives Subsidizing America Into Mediocrity

A snippet from The Jason Stapleton Show

I’m not joking. If you’re looking for the “American Dream,” (the joy of owning your home and the idea that your children will do better than you) your odds are far better in Canada than they are here in America. According to a new study from the St. Louis Fed if you start in the bottom 1/5 of society you are twice as likely to end up in the top 1/5 if you live in Canada rather than the U.S. Many would say we have a wealth inequality problem, but that has nothing to do with it. It’s a question of focus. America chooses to focus on inequality rather than mobility and ends up with greater inequality and less mobility. It’s something that has to change if we want America to be the Land of Opportunity again. *** I’m also going to talk a little foreign policy. Secretary of State Tillerson has announced a much tougher line with North Korea as we move one step closer to war. In reading the article, it reminded me of an email I received from a 10th grader who listens to the show. He was asking me about World War II, and I think his question has parallels with our situation today. Lots of great stuff in today’s episode including a video of Nancy Pelosi making a fool of herself…again. Enjoy, and don’t forget to visit jasonstapleton.com for the full episode and more!

Congress (and Voters) should hold Trump to his Health Care Campaign Promises

Picture

Do you remember what Candidate Trump’s Healthcare Reform Plan looked like?  I’ll remind you that it was glorious.  It was as if his campaign consultants hand-selected numerous Libertarian, free-market policies and listed them out in bullet points. 

Anyone who has read Economics in One Lesson, or passed any Econ101 course cheered it. 

Unfortunately, it’s long been forgotten.  Of course it would necessarily be better than the current tripe which is funded by millions of dollars worth of insurance company lobbyists and currently debated on the Senate floor, but we won’t even hear its merits debated in a public forum.

Our legislation process has devolved intoyelling down one another with more and more politician’s talking points.  “Millions will Die” is obviously all that is needed to be said to defeat any change to the ObamaCare disaster.  Not worth mentioning is other politician talking points such as “The average American Family will save $2500 annually under ObamaCare” and, of course, “If you like your doctor or plan, you can keep your doctor or plan.”

Libertarian Shirts Libertarian Country Liberty
An overview:

1. Completely repeal Obamacare.
2. Modify existing law that inhibits the sale of health insurance across state lines.
3. Allow individuals to fully deduct health insurance premium payments from
their tax returns under the current tax system.
4. Allow individuals to use Health Savings Accounts (HSAs).
5. Require price transparency from all healthcare providers, especially doctors
and healthcare organizations like clinics and hospitals.
6. Block-grant Medicaid to the states.
7. Remove barriers to entry into free markets for drug providers that offer safe,
reliable and cheaper products.

Either way, if you want to read a quick 4-page primer on health care reform, here it is.  It’s appealing because it was designed to lure you into voting for Trump.  Unfortunately, once you’re in power, ceding that power to the free market is a tougher task than any president can accomplish.

President Trump should go back and demand legislators FULLY REPEAL ObamaCare and institute a concise version of this:

Jason Stapleton Program: Public Schools & Your Tax Dollars

A snippet from The Jason Stapleton Show

Whether we’re talking about second amendment rights or the right to keep what we earn, the natural rights provided by “our creator” as well as those protected by the Constitution are under constant assault. Today we’re going to look at several examples of the ways government lies to us, and why we must be ever vigilant when given, we hear these silver tongued foxes promise us the moon in exchange for our liberty. I have come to believe the greatest threat to our liberty is not a foreign government or invading army. It’s not even a terrorist attack. The greatest threat to our liberty comes from our own government, and it’s constant intrusion into every aspect of our lives. Jason Stapleton Program, episode #547.

Physical Removal – Separating the Facts from the Perversions

Hans-Hermann Hoppe, Augusto Pinochet, and the Alt-Right Trolls

By Jakob Hörngren


The meme warriors from 4chan have revolutionized the art of meme warfare, and in the process of doing so; prominent libertarian scholars have appeared frequently together with fascist leaning military dictators, in what I would call the “alt-right meme circus”.

Memeing Gone Rampant

The helicopter is warmed up, photoshoped into the image are the faces of Augusto Pinochet (the former Chilean dictator) and Hans-Hermann Hoppe (Austrian economist and libertarian theorist) replacing the original caricature faces. Loaded onto the helicopter are a few communists or antifa social justice activists. Pepe the frog furthermore drags the commies onto the helicopter, and the helicopter carries the flag of Kekistan (an invented kingdom).

The text on the meme reads, “Hoppe’s physical removal service”, or “The Hoppean helicopter ride”, or “Free Kekistan!” Does this scenario sound familiar to you?

If you identify yourself as an anarcho-capitalist libertarian then you have certainly been exposed to the literature of Hans-Hermann Hoppe, and you might laugh in amusement at this type of weaponized autism put forward by the alt-right internet trolls.

While the perversion of Hoppe’s argumentation ethics is entertaining in a warped sort of way, it is understandable that some people could be deceived by this distortion of Hoppe’s arguments, and as a consequence obtain a twisted interpretation of one of the greatest heroes for the cause of liberty.

Physical Removal

In order to clear up the confusion regarding the controversy around Hoppe, we need to look closer at his argumentation ethics, and frame the issue given the presumed conditions from which Hoppe derives his reasoning. In his masterpiece, Democracy – The God That Failed, Hoppe famously claims that:

“in a covenant…among proprietor and community tenants for the purpose of protecting their private property, no such thing as a right to free (unlimited) speech exists”

because some people might promote ideas that would disturb the naturally established covenant and destabilize the covenant’s asserted protection of private property, concepts such as “democracy and communism”.

Hoppe furthermore goes on to argue that “there can be no tolerance toward democrats and communists in a libertarian social order” and the conclusion is that the alleged enemies of private property preservation “will have to be physically separated and removed from society”, so to speak.

The idea of “physical removal” is coming from the aforementioned statements. These statements, when taken out of context can be widely misunderstood. Continue reading “Physical Removal – Separating the Facts from the Perversions”

What Better Way To Help People Pay Their Bills Than Unemployment!

By Steven Clyde


In the midst of the hearsay of the common babbler, we time and time again find instances of the Dunning-Kruger Effect. To the dismay of scholars and people of the like who have an unquenchable lust for the truth there is no shortage of deranged talking points which not only have zero basis in reality but also fails to recognize its abhorrent contradiction of itself.

In Plato’s provocative work Allegory of the Cave , he described a fictitious instance in which there were subject humans who spent their entire lives in a dark cave tied down while staring at a wall of the cave, and there was a fire behind them which cast shadows on the wall. All they ever saw their entire lives were shadow figures made from people behind them. When one of them is released in the the real world, they are in disbelief; there is a sun that casts bright light and things have texture, appearance, a feeling, there are many sounds, etc.

Plato describes that, its impossible for the other subjects back at the cave to understand what the subject who was freed was really saying to them, and furthermore described the freed subject as insane. Though controversial as a philosopher, Plato offered us a great insight that any of us can ponder on: its impossible to comprehend the unseen. And within the realm of logic and economics, its impossible to comprehend what you don’t know.

This situation I describe here is of that of someone who quite literally, cannot comprehend economic theory, and their argument fails from every angle. A friend online asked her for data showing that raising the minimum wage helps businesses and the local economy, and this was the response he was given:

Okay, so lets break that down. Continue reading “What Better Way To Help People Pay Their Bills Than Unemployment!”

The Society of the Golden Pacifier

leftism, pacifier, leftist, progressivism, intolerance, snowflake, SJW, social justice warrior, meme, graphic, cartoon

Galactic Imperium News Service (GINS): The Society of the Golden Pacifier is proud to announce that all major universities and urban areas now have groups meeting on a weekly basis. The group, which was started in 1989, promises a safe space for all leftists who pride themselves on their intolerance and strong commitment to throwing tantrums whenever they encounter something they don’t like. Carl A. Marcks, President of the Society stated that she/he/it was very proud of the work they had done in using childish views and a 4th grade public school understanding of history and social issues in order to force their beliefs in regards to the removal of controversial veterans monuments, free healthcare for the speckled dodo, radical feminist issues, sexism and the under representation of green pickles in the video game culture (as represented by gamergate), reproductive rights for starfish, bigotry and patriarchy in casket design, and racism as represented by cupcakes. “We are extremely pleased to have members who also sit in some very powerful positions in government, academia, the press and entertainment industries.” Marcks said in regards to the latest shocking revelations of the despicable qualities of white male lab mice – and the subsequent social media outcry from SJW types through Europe and the United States. “It’s great to think of how we’re able to use tax dollars and well-funded leftist / progressive special interest groups to actively oppress the things we don’t like.”

The group encourages the use of their attached seal to print off and hang up in windows in order to help spread the word.
