Libertarian Vice Chair, Arvin Vohra, has found himself in hot water over his comments about the military. He went as far as to call black-pilled servicemen “moraless murderers.” He has created quite the controversy—especially in light of his superior, Nicholas Sarwark, ubiquitous syndication of excerpts from the Satanic bible via party social media. However, unlike Sarwark, a short time ago these statements may not even have been considered at all controversial. In fact, one could even argue that Arvin’s anti-military position is Libertarian dogma. So why the hoopla now?
In their quest for tangential growth, libertarians have simply become too scared to honestly state their beliefs. Make no mistake: while most Libertarians do not have an openly hostile relationship to the military (albeit few do), they do not necessarily feel “thankful” for them or feel a need to extol their arguably unnecessary service at sporting events—instead, we pity them. I quote a former naval officer friend of mine running in the Illinois LP for Lt. Gov., David Earl Williams III.
“We may have been exploited by government for our well intended voluntary service to defend our country while unknowingly appeasing corporate interest; but we’re not the enemy.”
While Arvin’s statements may have been insensitive, the reality is this “military skepticism” is something that we all share in the Liberty Movement, from soldier to civilian. For Libertarianism to recover from the death spiral foreseen here at Grand Inquirer, we must clearly state our views on the military, because foreign policy and military de-escalation has always been the primary marketing tool of the movement. There is a 15-year trend concurrent with the rise of defense spending and liberty movement growth. This topic has become far too muted over the last few years. We must break out of this spell of silence Nick Sarwark has cast on us and rediscover the ideological identity of Libertarianism.
Arvin’s comments broke a glass ceiling that needed to be broken. He should not be given the death penalty for that. In fact, he might be the only true libertarian in the entire LP Illuminati.
On that note :
“If you were tricked by military recruiters, help prevent the same thing from happening to others. Share your experiences, and speak out boldly,”
While previously praising Castle as more of a Libertarian than Gary Johnson, LH has appeared to have done a schizophrenic 180.
BUT NO, GARY JOHNSON IS NOT MORE LIBERTARIAN THAN DARRELL CASTLE
And this message from the Castle Campaign will make that ABUNDANTLY self-evident

I explain as objectively as I can the fallout between me and “Little Ceasar’s.”
LEARN TO WEAR A CONDOM!
Before Gary Johnson, this is what Libertarians used to be about and used to do. What will it take to bring it back?
As some presumably small portion of Americans sat through a dull debate between the Republican and Democratic vice-presidential nominees on Tuesday night, a far more interesting drama was unfolding within the Libertarian ticket. VP candidate Bill Weld told the Boston Globe that he plans to focus exclusively on attacking Donald Trump for the remainder of the campaign — essentially admitting that running mate Gary Johnson can not become president.
Trump has Weld’s “full attention,” he explained, because his agenda is so terrible it’s “in a class by itself.” “I think Mr. Trump’s proposals in the foreign policy area, including nuclear proliferation, tariffs, and free trade, would be so hurtful, domestically and in the world, that he has my full attention,” Weld said.
Apparently he avoided acknowledging that his new mission amounts to working to make Hillary Clinton president. He pointed out that he disagrees with Clinton on fiscal and military issues, though last week on MSNBC he said he’s “not sure anybody is more qualified than Hillary Clinton to be president of the United States.”
And now I will explain to you why with MINIMAL effort, because I am frankly tired of explaining this to people.
This is how Johnson looks to the general electorate (props to this montage by Bill Maher)
“He is just another one in my basket of total fucking idiots.” ~Bill Maher~
This is how Johnson looks to 50% of Libertarians.
It does’t matter ; behold my formula, and I have never got a POTUS election wrong in my life (except Gore, but he DID win lol).
1GaryJohnsonPollVote=2GiantMeteorPollVotes=.9 FUCK THESE CANDIDATES, I’M NOT VOTING…..poll votes.
He is likely to perform similarly to Ralph Nader (not Ross Perot). Meaning only .95 percent of the people who voted Johnson in those polls will actually wait in line on election day to vote for him. Although Ralph Nader may not have achieved 5%, at least he had principles like Jill Stein. Gary Johnson will be an sell out Ralph Nader and bring shame to House Libertarian for years to come.
And we SINCERELY hope Jill Stein outperforms him, and that you look at a Libertarian Alternative like Darrell Castle. He is FAR under-appreciated.
