George Santos for House Speaker — And the Reality of Elections in America

By Scott Lazarowitz

George Santos is the New York Congressman-elect who has been caught lying about his work and educational background, as well as his religion. He is a laughing stock, yet the House Republicans will probably just look the other way as he gets sworn in as a new Congressman.

“How can you tell that a politician is lying? When his lips are moving.”

I know, it’s an old joke, but true.

Meanwhile, the new Republican House is looking for a Speaker to begin the new term, and Republican leader Kevin McCarthy is short on votes.

So, given that just about everything from these Congresspeople is one lie after another, they might as well make Santos the new Speaker. The Liar of the House would represent the other 434.

For example, Congress has been lying about their multi-trillion-dollar spending bills, the Omnibus bill, the “infrastructure” bill, the “inflation reduction” bill, all being nothing but more heists to steal more from the people so bureaucrats can live high off the hog even more.

In fact, it’s lie after lie from the whole federal government in Washington.

The CDC has been lying about Covid for 3 years, redefining a “Covid death” as being anyone who tested positive for Covid, even though the deceased actually died of what he was already dying of, such as heart disease, kidney disease, cancer, etc.

And such guidelines were based on a thoroughly dishonest testing regime, with medical officials testing people at high cycle thresholds to guarantee false positives.

Another Covid lie was that people who carried the virus but had no symptoms were still contagious. Nope. That was the basis for locking down entire cities and countries and forcing healthy, asymptomatic people to stay inside to compromise their health.

And bureaucrats and “doctors” have been lying and continue to lie about the mRNA “vaccine” that’s not a vaccine, asserting that taking the drug injection will protect you from Covid and will prevent the spread, when it does none of those things.

Government bureaucrats and their media stenographers were lying about “Trump-Russia collusions,” and they’ve been lying about January 6th, calling the trespassing and riotous events of that day an “insurrection,” when it was no such thing. Congressional apparatchiks such as Adam Schiff had asserted that Trump incited an insurrection or even a riot, based on Trump’s urging people to walk “peacefully and patriotically” to the Capitol.

The Reality of Elections

In fact, the centralized regime in Washington is a lie, and it is impossible to reform such a regime or make it more limited, regardless of what a subsequent election or change in leadership can accomplish.

Many people, especially conservatives and Republicans, seem to be in denial that elections will not resolve the problems of society.

Listening to “Clay and Buck” recently I see that they are already obsessed with 2024, “Trump vs. DeSantis, DeSantis vs. Trump, who will be our nominee, our savior, etc., etc.”

We just HAD elections, can’t you guys take a break from all that?

Well, if the problems of 2020 were not resolved by 2022 — and they weren’t — and we have more shenanigans and “faulty” i.e. rigged machines and tabulators, mail-in cheating, early cheating and ranked-choice cheating, then the criminals in charge will continue their election criminality.

The election frauds and coups are getting worse and worse now, despite whatever “reforms” have taken place in the various states.

So now other talk radio personalities, conservatives and Republicans are saying that we’re just going to have to go along to get along, and play the games of mail-in and early voting.

And I can see what will thus be coming in the future: more of them doing their cheating, and organizing their vote fraud schemes just like the Democrats. That is what they sound like now.

In fact, we continue to see the worst of the worst getting elected and ruling over us, such as the 18 Senate Republicans who voted for the $1.7 trillion Omnibus heist.

“But I thought that Republicans were for fiscal responsibility. Or is that just a myth?”

Yes, that’s a myth. Additionally, the Republicans continue to vote for huge tax-theft extravagances for the military contractors and the hundreds and hundreds of useless U.S. military bases that continue to occupy foreign territories, for no good reason.

So what government reforms have really happened since, for example, the the 1980, 1994, and 2010 Republican takeovers in Washington, in the long term?

Absolutely nothing.

And Trump was only able to achieve short-term progress with the economy and energy independence. Just look at how all that crashed and burned immediately, starting on January 20, 2021 with the Biden inauguration.

So this hysteria and anxiety over the next election, and the next election after that, and worrying about whether our freedom and property will continue to be violated and terrorized by the next government office holders, is not the way to live. Not in what is supposed to be a free society, anyway.

In a free society, you own your life and your labor and your justly acquired property. You live your life as you see fit, as long as you don’t violate the persons or property of others. No permission from a bureaucrat.

The Future of Freedom Foundation’s Jacob Hornberger recently wrote about the period of 1870 to 1915 in American history, and why such circumstances then should be desirable now:

No income taxation or IRS. People were free to keep everything they earned.

No welfare, including Social Security and Medicare. Charity was entirely voluntary.

No drug laws. People were free to consume, possess, or distribute whatever they wanted.

No immigration controls. Everyone was free to come to the United States.

No minimum-wage laws.

Very few economic regulations. Economic enterprise was free of governmental control.

No foreign wars, interventions, wars of aggression, coups, state-sponsored assassinations, torture, or indefinite detention.

No passports.

No Pentagon.

No enormous standing military establishment or military-industrial complex. Instead, simply a basic military force.




No foreign aid.

No foreign military bases.

No departments of education, labor, commerce, and others.

No regulatory departments or agencies.

No compulsory school-attendance laws or public-school systems (except in Massachusetts).

No Federal Reserve System.

No paper money.

No gun control.

But do today’s conservatives and talk radio personalities ever directly demand the abolishing of all those horrible government schemes and policies? No, of course not!

They are such gutless wonders that they would never utter what really needs to be done. After all, their next election is all they think or care about.

Republicans and Democrats especially in Washington only care about power and control. And money — enriching themselves at your expense. Do you think they actually care about what you think? As Larken Rose pointed out, no they don’t care about you, they don’t care what you think.

The Most Dangerous Superstition by Larken Rose

Do we really want, or need, such liars and crooks ruling over our lives?

The real solutions involve policies of decentralization and nullification. Getting rid of the Washington regime root and branch is what would genuinely save the society.

But searching for whichever Congress liar should be the next House speaker is a total waste of time.

And the talk radio personalities and other conservatives idealistically being obsessed with 2024 as though a new Republican CONgress or president will make things better, are just not dealing with reality.
