1. Annual Fund-raising Season Kicks Off Free Five-Year Terms All Senator Sign Ups
http://www.international-parliament.org/senator-sign-up.html

Our team will be undergoing incredible changes like no one has seen before through August 5th 2022!

EVERYTHING IS CHANGING!

It's really hard to explain a lot of the details, but the changes involve a new Provincial Senate Chamber with thirty-six new Provincial Senators, who are automatically elected from marked paper ballots being distributed now.

We're electing 36 "Super-state Senators" to the PPR Electoral College.

There's more. The top three names from every country will be elected for free to the International Parliament's (IP) Senate Chamber:
http://www.international-parliament.org/senate.html

Senator terms will increase from one year to five year terms (2022 to 2027).

There are also State Senators who can be elected into the 6457-party/caucus system when the demand arises.

The optional dues-paying membership fee of $60. helps pay hosting and tax costs and is not required for the free five-year term 2022 to 2027.

Now it's the season when we must really try hard to increase dues-paying signups. We're making a special offer!

The offer is five year terms for all new IP Senator signups, that includes those who do pay the $60. processing fee, for the ID and certificate.

We'd like to elect your name into the Cabinet, Caucus Executive, the All Party System Co. (APS-IB) board of directors (BoDs) and/or any of the sixty Cabinet Ministries. All that and that's on one, or up to six, multiple geo-levels where we can move your name around as Senator.

Both of the two departments of the parliament store APS-IB, the Treasurer assistant and the Secretary, are competing on doing a better job on the membership signups. So if you just want to be a paying customer, contact the APS-IB Treasurer's assistant Marion, or the APS-IB Secretary James Ogle.

By using Western Union or PayPal now, that's how we increase the optional dues-paying Senator signups, and be sure to bring your own initiative to help us get that right. The dues-payers (IP Senators) get custom web page work. We'd love to update the Senator's name, on up six geo-levels simultaneously, and dues-payers get the highest priority.

Many new precedents and ideas can be brought along, with our Senate Chambers and to the Cabinet Ministries on multiple geo-levels; Treasuries, Foreign Affairs, contacts for US State Department and the military, Judicial Committees for vote counting, and more.

By becoming a five-year dues-paying member we hope you'll get the pleasure of helping the whole team improve. Please contact us now!
Solo = lose, team = win.

NOTE: New callers speak first, non-binary gender name #1, our opposite gender at #2 and then our like gender (hosts are male so that will be male) at #3. At the top of the hour the first speaker starts and the 1/2 hour is divided equally between all speakers attending conference call.

Our team the Republican Democratic 1Libertarian Caucus, is bringing good Independents and the Green, Libertarian, Christocrat, One, No Party Preference, New Humanism, Democratic and the Republican Parties, where everyone wins in the new United Coalition Earth!

Go to the Federal Archives (www.archives.gov) where all parties' Electors are published, find and rank the best name(s) for the top Senator-Elector in your own state. Then write a name #1 (your name?) into the Electoral College in 2024. In 2023 the new Electors start to sign up and our team will try to build itself to the 538-member level.

Our team seeks names of citizens who want to represent the team as a whole. No matter what party we register and/or proclaim, with 538 USA Electors from coast-to-coast, the first 538 voters on our paper ballots are guaranteed to elect one name.

We want twelve times the number needed, as many back-ups as possible, so please rank around twelve names. Mathematically, 12 x 538 = 6456, + 1 (Droop Quota) = the 6457-party/caucus system.

Anytime we mail in a new marked paper ballot, then our most recent rankings on that ballot, cancel the previous rankings on the same marked paper ballot by us. Then everyone' vote gets posted for transparency, validation and verification purposes.

2024 - The Eight Steps for the Libertarian National Committee (LNC) Budget Using the 1Ogle Method

1. All LNC Electors specify their proposed national total budget for the year.
2. All the submissions from the first step above are averaged to reach a total averaged sum of all LNC Electors' proposed totals.
3. All LNC Electors determine a suggested total for each and every one of their own personal proposed budget items.
4. All LNC Electors to have an equal free speech period, where all LNC Electors personally make a case for their items.
5. After the free speech period, all LNC Electors rank all the choices on one ballot, a ballot which includes all proposals.
6. All proposals which receive 50% (plus one vote) on each item in previous step are to be considered approved by simple majority.
7. Ties between approved items which are similar in nature are broken when higher ranking totals cancel similarly worded item(s) with lower ranking totals.
8. All items approved are then calibrated up or down simultaneously until the national total budget averaged sum in step 2 is reached.

What we learned from the California Recall Election
Commentary by James Ogle [One]

The incredible news is that the three paper ballots; one for the guidelines, a second for the Unity Platform, the third is for electing names. The paper ballot for the 6457-party/caucus system is for electing names on both the twelve USA Super-states, the twelve Republic of Earth Provinces, and all names on the paper ballots can be elected on all six geo-levels simultaneously although it's the first year we've applied this to both lower levels and the Earth at-large.

The standardization allows anyone to vote on any geo-level when they first sign up no matter where the voter currently resides.

Each paper ballot is ready to print as a PDF, is linked in the bottom navigation bar on each and every one of the twelve USA Super-states, and will also soon linked in navigation bar on all twelve International Parliament population-balanced Provinces.

Two paper ballots, the International Parliament and Unity Platform, are linked to the site www.1libertarian.com.

We brought the three paper ballots to the 46-candidate California Recall Election and we gained a lot of experience. Unfortunately the final versions of the three standardized paper ballots were only uploaded after the September 14th election so we had almost no success with getting the paper ballots to be marked by the Gubernatorial candidates.

Only candidates Heather Collins [Green] and Rhonda Furin [Republican] marked the Unity Platform paper ballots (e-aps-6), and the paper ballot for nominations (e-aps-13) and guidelines (8.5" x 14" PDF) (e-aps-1), didn't get any tics.

3. All Parties and Independents Working Together on One Electoral College
http://www.pprelectoralcollege.com

The party bosses said they didn't like hearing about asking everyone to write in twelve consecutively ranked names beginning with the number "1", i.e. 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12, etc. or more, so to grow the Electoral College by twelve. Twelve times 538 = 6456. Plus one vote (Droop Quota) = 6457 Electors.

In 2024, we're trying to bring in twelve US Presidential candidates as one big team. We rank them now, and then they may signup with their State Elections Department, that starts in 2023.

The two highest-ranked names may pick first, and they may pick two seats from all open seats, such as one of two Senators.

Two working as a team can also be Prez/Vice Prez, Chair/Vice Chair, and other crazy good ideas like you're reading about here.

Everyone needs to be signed up as one of two US Senator Electors or State Senator Electors, and then the two top-ranked names pick first. The first person can pick any open title, and can switch with lower-ranked names later for all seats, followed by the next highest ranked names who have similar benefits.

Under the US Constitution, voters of all parties and all independents are permitted to join behind the nomination of one US President and one Vice President, and we're opening that up to everyone now for both public and private elections of the Libertarian Party National Committee (LNC) and all parties and independents.

The United Coalition has been nominating Prez and VP for twenty-six consecutive years when we first nominated Honorable Harry Browne [Libertarian] for President and Honorable Colin Powell [Independent] for Vice President, along with 123 consecutively-ranked Presidential and Vice Presidentital candidates to follow, on April 1st 1995.

(Those records were deleted when the founders of Google launched off our team around October 1997 and the Usenet records of Deja View News were changed. They became "Google Groups".

Look into your state's records from the 2020 Electoral College names.

Help bring team players from all parties and independents under the marked paper ballots for the elections of names, guidelines and the Unity Platform!

There are three main paper ballots on which to vote; names, decision-items and unity platform.

The new "Republican Democratic 1Libertarian Caucus" is helping everyone learn how to work together and find solutions for the whole.

http://www.1libertarian.com

Voting is going on now through 2024 and everyone may vote. When a second vote is cast by anyone, it replaces their previous vote, and that way the results are dynamic and always improving. We use "concrete" votes on paper ballots kept as proof, resulting in very high validation and verification standards, and so all our mathematicians are united.

7. The Case Against Censorship, Systemic Racism, Communist-style Elections, Double Standards and Gerrymandering (LPLAC Regions 62,63,64,65)
http://www.allpartysystem.com/day-to-day.php

James Ogle [One] writes:

If a black candidate got 1/11ths of the votes should they win one of the 11 SF City Council seats?

If a white candidate got 1/11ths of the votes should they win one of the 11 SF City Council seats?

If Libertarians won 1/11th of the votes should the Libertarian get one of 11 SF City Council seats?

If women get 1/11th of the votes in SF should they get one of eleven SF City Council seats?

If Republicans win 1/11th (9%) of the city votes at-large should they win one of the eleven SF City Council seats

Yes.

And that's exactly what the new guidelines for the LNC being proposed now will do in any election;

Www.allpartysystem.com/e-aps-1.php

Unfortunately all eleven seats in SF are single-winner election districts under ranked choice voting (RCV) so that the threshold is 50% plus one vote, and the Ds win 100% of all the seats, just like the LNC bosses win 100% of all seats. That's where the biggest group always elects each seat one at a time or across the board under slate voting.

The LNC also uses slate voting so that the execs always win across the board by snuffing out competition.

The Ds in SF bring multiple players and the single transferable vote (STV), where the vote just single transfers to the Democratic winners, 100% of the time. That's exactly how the Libertarian Party dictatorship treats outsiders within the LNC. The bosses always pick who wins from the inside and wins 100% top down one at a time.

Nobody likes dictators.

The winning strategy is to be able to attract votes by working with others who aren't like you, while sitting at the same table as equals, and by using friendly civil converstation.

James, no one on this email recipient list is going to write bylaw amendments for you, and in looking at your starting document, it frankly has nothing to do with the LPCA or our Bylaws. If you would like to offer an amendment to change the LPCA convention voting systems you will need to start with the LPCA Bylaws (not your all party thingy) and write something up that can be presented to the delegates. But that means that you need to do the work because none of us are going to do the work for you.

My suggestion is if you have others you’re working with you, you have them help you do this, but PLEASE stop sending emails to the LPCA for help!

I don’t know how many different ways I need to say this. You are conflating several things here; you are lumping together platform planks, bylaws, and your organization.

To be clear, what you are proposing are NOT Bylaws amendments. The Libertarian Party of California IS NOT a part of your "Republican Green 1Libertarian Caucus."

Starchild [Libertarian] wrote:
Not sure what you mean by "one-party thresholds" in the context of internal party elections – of course they're about one party!

In the Libertarian Party, we go by ideas and their merits – we don't judge people based on their ethnic or gender status. It sounds like you want the LP to discriminate based on ethnicity, gender, and other non-chosen characteristics. That would be against libertarian philosophy which requires treating people as individuals.

I have no interest in trying to establish quotas or representation based on gender. I want people who are strongly pro-freedom to represent

If you want more proportional representation, or ranked-choice voting, those are goals many Libertarians can get behind. I would suggest focusing on something like that and leaving all the racist stuff out of it.

I wonder to what extent you really support what the party is about though. I don't hear you talking a lot about freedom, or the ideas in our platform. Are you in the Libertarian Party to support our goal of a world set free in our lifetimes, or just to promote your own ideas about voting?

James Ogle [One] repeats the question and answers for the Chair of California LP and Starchild:

If Libertarians won 1/11th of the votes should the Libertarian get one of 11 seats?

Unfortunately all eleven seats in SF are single-winner election districts under RCV so the threshold is 50% plus one vote and the Ds win 100% of all the seats just like the LNC.

The LNC also uses slate voting so that the execs always win across the board by snuffing out competition.

The Ds in SF bring multiple players and the single transferable vote just single transfers to the Democratic winner 100% of the time. That's exactly how the Libertarian Party dictatorship treats outsiders within the LNC and then nobody likes Libertarians because they're dictators.

Pure proportional representation will award any faction, one of eleven SF City Council seats, but the Chair and Starchild both insist that the current SF elections where Ds win 100% of all eleven sesats is fine and good. When I point out that only the biggest party wins the LP likes that fine.

The United Coalition says; No way. The one-party and two-party voting systems are unacceptable. America is a melting pot.

We will never settle for a one-party system like the LNC dictators protect.

We must remove all those who object to competitive elections on all six geo-levels for the leadership positions. The way we do this is with the competition of elections, three or more members of our team must vie for two or more seats on all the executive elections.

The Libertarian Party bosses are protecting their own status, by snuffing out new voices who might think, proclaim or register to vote differently from them.
The Libertarian Party boss message is; "we already know that no one wants to hear new ideas and we snuff out your rights to make sure."
Even when outsiders with new ideas and new friends try to come to support, be part of or try to join the LNC, they are snuffed out as threats.

8. Signup on Six Geo-levels Simultaneously, Four Geo-levels of Senators
https://international-parliament.org/senator-sign-up.html

Nominations for the team is going on now for our plans for US State Senators, US Senators, two "National Senators from all 200+ countries and twenty-four Provincial Senators including two from North America.

There will be two Provincial Senators from each of the twelve Provincial Republic of Earth Provincial Parliaments:

All six geo-levels are trying to set new precedents with Senator candidate nominees.

The two top-ranked names on each geo-level will be designated Senator.

A new 24-Member Earth Provincial Senator Chamber with two Senators from twelve population balanced regions of the Earth, world Senators are a new part of all this.

Plus a US Electoral College which is twelve times bigger, the numbers US "Senator Electors" grow from 100 US Senator Electors in the US Electoral College to 1200 Senators Electors. Instead of two per state, twelve US Senator Electors, and twelve times the number of all Electors to 6457 12 X 538 = 6456. Under the Droop Quota = 1/(6456[+1]) = 1/6457 (under .016 of 1%). Point zero one six percent (.016%) of the total votes cast elects each of 6457 Presidential Electors in consecutive order.

That's only the beginning because the very "Article the First", it's already ratified by eleven of the first 13 States, already approved by Congress, and that will expand the size of Congress by more than six times based on 50K caps on voters per Congressional District.

Two departments of the All Party System Co., the Treasurer assistant and Secretary, are competing on the signup page by using Western Union and PayPal now to increase the option dues-paying Senators. The dues-payers get custom web page work to update the name on six geo-levels simultaneously.

The War on Women
https://www.facebook.com/Sharon-Presley-Essays-103443684860539
by Sharon Presley
October 27, 2020

There is a war on women right now and it’s not in the Middle East. It’s right here in the US. Some might say there has been a war on women for centuries. True enough but this is a war new in its intensity and scope, an unrelenting attack on women and their bodily autonomy.

Let’s look at the evidence. For starters, here are six states that have already passed laws that ban abortion at six weeks, before most women even know they are pregnant. They know the federal courts will knock down the bans but they want it to go to the Supreme Court where they are hoping that the 6 conservatives (5 men and one woman) will uphold the bans and/or kick Roe v. Wade in the guts. More are on the way, according to the Guttmacher Institute: “Through April 11, 14 states have introduced, moved, or enacted 6-week bans this year, underscoring the extreme scope and unprecedented volume of these bills. Banning abortion at six weeks has emerged as a leading tactic for antiabortion politicians and activists, with the ultimate goal of challenging Roe v. Wade at the U.S. Supreme Court.”

But as the pro-choice Guttmacher Institute points out, it’s worse than that. “20 states have laws in effect that prohibit “partial-birth” abortion,” says Guttmacher. Another appalling example: “11 states restrict coverage of abortion in private insurance plans, most often limiting coverage only to when the woman’s life would be endangered if the pregnancy were carried to term.” Government telling private insurance companies what they may or may not cover!

Conservative religious groups are busy trying to prevent women from exercising bodily autonomy.
“Meanwhile, religious hospitals, especially Catholic ones, are gobbling up their secular counterparts and then imposing bishop-decreed restrictions on abortion care and birth control. Conservative, limited-government Republicans (particularly John Kasich, the alleged moderate) continue to enact Targeted Regulation of Abortion Providers (Trap laws), legislation cynically designed to be impossible with which to comply, so that clinics will be forced to close. And when none of those tactics work, there’s straightforward terrorism: Planned Parenthood clinics in Washington, California and elsewhere have been targeted by arson attacks.

Trump is part of this madness, doing everything he can to fight pro-choice people and positions and put anti-choice judges in positions of power. A Trump-appointed judge recently ruled, for example, that a procedure described as “nothing short of torture” is allowable.
“Before Donald Trump nominated him to the federal bench, John K. Bush was perhaps best known as an anti-gay blogger who spread birther conspiracies. Now he is a judge on the U.S. 6th Circuit Court of Appeals. Bush was selected, in part, because of his conservative views on reproductive rights, including a belief that abortion is a tragedy on par with slavery. On Thursday, he transformed those views into law, upholding Kentucky’s “informed consent” law in an opinion overflowing with charged anti-abortion rhetoric.

The Kentucky law at issue is extraordinarily invasive. It requires abortion providers to perform an ultrasound, generally using a transvaginal probe for pregnancies of less than nine weeks, on all patients seeking to terminate their pregnancies. The provider must then describe the fetus in detailed terms, pointing out its organs, and play the sound of its heartbeat.”
Another way women are hurt: harsher sentences for women than for men for essentially the same crimes.
“In 2006, Robert Braxton Jr. was sentenced to probation plus two years time served for severely beating two of his girlfriend Tondalo Hall’s three children, but Hall herself was sentenced to 30 years in prison under the “failure to protect” law for permitting the abuse. Hall testified that she was also a victim of Braxton’s abuse. Yet, on her attorney’s advice, she entered a “blind plea” in which she admitted guilt without a deal from the prosecutor. Her sentence, and its seemingly disproportionate severity compared to Braxton’s, brought national attention to the unfair application of such laws, which carry potential life sentences in six states, including Oklahoma. In September, Hall’s request to have her sentence commuted was denied; her next chance to argue for commutation will be in three years.”

The abuser got two years, the mom got 30 years. What sense does that make? None at all. Unless you hate women, want to control them, or think they are more to blame than the men who actually perpetrate the abuse.
Not surprisingly, researchers have found that opposition to abortion is associated with sexist attitudes toward women. “Further, the study found that these sexist attitudes were based on a person’s idealization of motherhood as an essential element of womanhood. “The idealization of women – and motherhood, in particular – comes at a substantial cost, namely, the restriction of women’s reproductive rights,” say the study’s authors. That is, restrict women’s choices and actions.
It’s not just sexism but outright misogyny that is associated with anti-women attitudes and anti-women legislation:
“Deciding whether and when to have a child and whether or when to consent to sexual activity are both fundamentally about asserting autonomy over our own bodies. And both restrictions on abortion and the dismissal of sexual assault are about people in power — predominantly men — trying to strip away our dignity and roll back our march toward equality. We’ve seen it across this country as state legislatures have introduced more than 250 laws restricting abortion access since January 2019.”

This is hardly surprising. Taking away women’s bodily autonomy is profoundly and on the deepest level anti-women. It says a women’s body belongs to legislators who get to decide what women may or may not do with their bodies. It’s hardly surprising that women dressed as characters from the very pro-woman “The Handmaid’s Tale” are showing up frequently at protests.
Also not surprisingly. there is also a war against sex workers as documented in the book, The War on Whores. Regardless of what one thinks of sex work, from a libertarian perspective, it’s nobody’s business what other people do with their lives as long as they are not using coercion against others.
Then, there’s the libertarians who are willing to sell women down the river for a “sexy” candidate, namely Justin Amash, who is anti-choice. And not just anti-choice/forced birther but he is on record as stating he believes that “life begins at conception” and “will fight to protect life at all stages.” At all stages? What about the “stage” that includes women trying to protect themselves and their lives? Or the 11-year-old girl who was raped? Don’t their lives matter? Some claim Amash is a libertarian but I remain unconvinced. Not only does he want abortion forbidden by law, he is weak on immigrants and LGBT people. What is libertarian about that? Answer? Nothing. That didn’t prevent a prominent libertarian who I will not name publicly from accusing Harriet Joy and me of conducting a “jihad.” I am not making this up. That is the word he used. Why? Because we were criticizing a friend of his for being pro-Amash even though the friend is pro-choice. The libertarian who accused us of a jihad is against abortion (though not by law). I do know that he called Amash a libertarian.
We don’t care whether Amash is libertarian or not, which we doubt anyway. He is anti-choice. That’s all we need to know. The officers of the Association of Libertarian Feminists will not support any candidate who is anti-choice. Ever. Women’s bodily autonomy is too important. It is not negotiable. It is not an extra. If there is any jihad going on, it is against women’s right to choose and against women as independent acting beings.
