There are rumors that I do not intend to campaign against Eli Rivera. These rumors are not true, and I will be campaigning to win in November.
Hate mail is really coming in now, although most of it is just passive aggressive nonsense that says what it means to say without explicitly saying it. C’est la vie. I’m used to receptions that aren’t exactly warm. In fact, I’m used to quite a bit worse. Let’s face it: I do a nationally-syndicated radio show that streams to the Internet, where I have my own Youtube channel, and where I do my own gaming streams. Rarely does any stream go by without someone coming along just to talk about me being a freak. Again: c’est la vie. I’m quite happy with things.
As of late, I’ve been called a “wolf in sheepskin.” First of all, it’s worth pointing out that a libertarian anarchist who runs as a Republican isn’t a wolf in sheepskin; they’re a sheep in wolfskin. The Republicans and Democrats are the parties of hostility, aggression, taxation, military-style policing, unconstitutional mandates, states of emergencies, unending war, and murdering children around the globe. As of yet, no elected libertarian anarchist has done any of those things.
So you’re mad. I get it. I promise you: I get it. You feel betrayed. You may even be wondering how the party that you so believed in could do something like this. But, odds are, you’re blaming me. Most people are probably angry at me, and blaming me for all this. That’s silly. I was always upfront about who I am. The good man in Rindge who looked into me found out everything he needed to know with a simple Google search. There it was, plain as day:
Anarchist. Shemale. Tranny. Libertarian. “Fuck the police.” Free Talk Live. Bitcoin. Reformed Satanic Church. Black Lives Matter.
It’s all there. None of it is a secret. I couldn’t possibly have been more upfront about who I am, or my position on things. Did none of you pay attention to the election two years ago, when I criticized Eli Rivera for not going far enough with his sanctuary policy? Did none of you remember the six foot tall tranny who ran for sheriff and then city council?
You could have easily looked at a sample ballot prior to the election, and you could have simply looked up the candidates in a search engine. By doing so, you, like the good citizen in Rindge, would probably have been appalled, and probably wouldn’t have voted for me. I wouldn’t have begrudged you for that. I was, after all, rather upfront about it. I went into it expecting that I would lose the primary to a write-in candidate, because I didn’t think that so many voters were just… completely and totally oblivious about who they are voting for.
Because the fact is that you didn’t bother. You trusted the system. You trusted the establishment. You trusted the party. You felt safe. You were sure that there must be some mechanisms in place to prevent from occurring exactly what just occurred. Your anger is misplaced if you direct it at me. Please listen. Your anger is with the system that has lied to you. Your anger is with the system that convinced you to believe in it, trust in it, and have faith in it, when it is completely and utterly broken.
More than 4,000 people went into the voting booth on September 8 this week, and they all filled in the circle by my name despite knowing absolutely nothing about the person they were nominating to the most powerful law enforcement position in the county. That’s a level of recklessness of which any decent human being should be ashamed.
And I’m not the only one. A friend of mine–who I won’t name because I haven’t asked his permission to, even though I doubt he would care–had a similar result. He did absolutely no campaigning. I am his friend, and I was only barely aware that he was running. Yet this person who did no campaigning, has no political connections, and, to my knowledge, has never been to a single Republican meeting, and didn’t just win his race–he placed first in his race, where there were several other options. Maybe 20 Republican voters in all of Cheshire County knew who this guy was. Yet he won–and he won by taking first place in his race.
Really, whose fault is all this? You don’t know anything about the people you’re voting for. You’re just blindly voting for them because you trust in the party, you trust in the system. Well, the party is broken, and the system is broken. It’s all broken.
For those of you who actually did research, thank you. I’m not being snide. I’m glad that someone bothered to actually look at to whom they were handing power over theirs and other people’s lives. Sadly, you number in the minority. The write-in campaign in Rindge was exceedingly well done–a testament to the power of grassroots, decentralized communication–yet it saddens me that it was even necessary. One person did their research prior to the election, and he spread what he found everywhere. Good on him. That is a person I respect. But those people who learned of me because of this person should have already known. They didn’t, though. Because they trusted the party. They trusted the system. The system, they thought, surely would never let them down.
I’m running for sheriff because I oppose that very system, and the sheriff has the most hands-on ability in Cheshire County to oppose that system. The system that let you down by allowing me–the freaking transsexual Satanist anarchist–be your sheriff candidate is the same system I’m attacking. I’m sorry, and I know it hurts to hear, but that system is a lie. The entire thing is a lie. It’s broken from beginning to end, and my existence as your sheriff candidate is merely how this reality was thrown into your face.
May I suggest, however, that you place your anger where it belongs? The system failed you. The system gained your trust, leading you to believe that “something like this” was impossible. Well, “something like this” just happened. The system didn’t stop it. The system didn’t even try. The system established your trust based on one lie after the other. The system lied to you. I never did. I was always upfront about who I am. You could have seen me for who I am.
But the system convinced you it was safe to close your eyes.
It’s a good time to consider anarchy, I would suggest. The system you have? It’s clearly broken. For Lucifer’s sake, I’m your sheriff candidate. How much more evidence do you need that the system is utterly and hopelessly broken? Remember that I’m just the most drastic example. What of George W. Bush and Dick Cheney? Two mindless warhawks who exploded the national debt, inflated the currency, destroyed countless lives, and nuked a thriving economy? What of Donald Trump, a Democrat who won the Republican nomination for President for exactly the same reasons I just won the Republican nomination for Cheshire County Sheriff?
It’s all a lie. It’s all broken.
I hope that I’ve convinced you that your anger is misplaced if you are angry at me. I didn’t do this. I didn’t ask you to trust me. I didn’t ask you to “vote blue no matter who” or whatever equivalent slogan Republicans use. The system did. You should be angry. You should be practically foaming-at-the-mouth in rage, livid at what has happened.
The state failed you. Not me. The party, the Republicans, the State of New Hampshire, the United States. The entire apparatus that you believe in. That failed you. I was honest. They weren’t.
If you agree, know this: the first step to fixing this mess, where we have a system where more than 90% of “highly-connected” and “politically-aware” primary voters don’t actually have any idea who they are voting for, is to secede from the United States. LImit the damage that other ignorant people can do to you. Think about it. More than 4,000 people in Cheshire County alone voted completely in ignorance, with no awareness of the candidate they were voting for. Imagine that on a state-wide scale, or a nation-wide scale. Imagine a person in California, Mississipp, Colorado, Washington, or Oregon voting for who is going to decide what you can and can’t do, when they don’t know the very first thing about that person. Imagine the millions upon millions of votes being cast each year in abject, complete, and total ignorance of the people who are being voted for. I don’t know how you can see me become the Republican nominee for sheriff and not become an anarchist, to be honest. Look how clueless the average voter is!
And we’re not even dealing with the “average” voter, are we? No, the people who vote in the primaries are supposed to be “well-connected” and “politically aware.” This is what the “politically aware” and “well-connected” did: they made me their sheriff candidate. Imagine how much worse it would be when the “not connected” and “not politically aware” vote in November. They’re voting for the people who will rule you. They have no idea who they’re voting for! They’re completely blind to what they’re doing, and yet they trust the system so much that they will vote for Donald “Grab ’em by the pussy” Trump and Joe “I like to fondle and sniff children” Biden.
Sweet Satan, how can you not be an anarchist?! Between 75 and 80% of the primary voters–the ones alleged to be more politically aware than the average voter–were completely and totally ignorant of who they were voting for! What is the percentage with the average voter? 90%? 95%? These people are deciding who gets to rule you.
Stand with me. Say “screw that.” Secede from the United States. Don’t let the ignorant, uninformed voters in other states determine the people who rule over you.
I would go further and suggest that Cheshire County should secede from the United States and from New Hampshire. They failed you. It’s time to take a different approach.
Don’t be mad at me. Be mad at the system.
For those who agree and want to dismantle the system, you can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like signs. I still have plenty, with more being ordered tomorrow. Rather than “F the police,” a new batch of 50 will say “F the system.” There are two other designs that will be arriving, and then there are the generic, non-controversial signs, more of which are arriving next week. I do not accept donations.
