Here’s the latest reader question – which is more in the way of commentary – along with my reply!
David writes: Regardless of where one falls politically, the sanctity of the vote is a bedrock of a functioning representative democracy. Voters have to believe their vote matters. And that the vote is free, fair, and accurate. I wanted to reach out today because I saw you mentioned election fraud (here) and I wanted to send you a piece we have written on the topic.
With so many voices out there it is hard to to actually sift through the mainstream media to find actual facts and sources to back them up. That is why to combat this misinformation and to spread factual information, we have recently launched a blog. This is a brand new venture for us and we just started publishing articles. One of our main goals is to backup our claims with actual facts and proven statistics so we include a ton of links to sources within the articles. Here is the full article. No worries if this isn’t something you are interested in; I know we’re a new player in the game. Regardless I would still love to hear your thoughts on the piece, agree or disagree.
My reply: I am happy to refer EPautos readers to your site, though as I mentioned in my private email to you, I have not included any reference to Facebook/your group there because I hold that it is contrary to our love of liberty and honesty to “like” or have anything to do with the Big Tech “social media” organs, except to use them as it furthers our purpose.
What I mean by that is what I practice myself, which is to drop links to material of mine published here and elsewhere but to never waste a moment engaging in back-and-forth with others on these platforms. Save that for publishers such as Parler, which don’t suppress/censor and so support liberty and honesty.
No person who objects to the grotesque we-know-best hall-monitoring of allowable speech that is now brazenly performed by FB, Google and Twitter should be using them except in the manner that one might use a $10 hooker.
Support venues – and people – who support liberty.
To Hell with the rest.

I was surprised when I scanned the website to find quotes from Mises, Rothbard, etc. However, what shocked me most was the inclusion of Teddy Roosevelt. Roosevelt, perhaps more than any other president before him, started the U.S. on the Road to Serfdom, that is Socialism. He signed the Pure Food and Drug Act of 1906 the day it was passed by congress. It was, to quote Wikipedia, “a key peace of Progressive Era legislation”. Not only did it federalize the meat packing industry but, began the federal War on Drugs.
To get a sense of what Ol’ TR was about, read his speech The New Nationalism, it lays out his concept for federal rule of the economy and reveals his Labor Theory of Value beliefs which are at the core of Marxism.

I’m right there with you eric. The first e in my mail today was a Zoosk. I opened it not having a clue as to what it was. I found out really quickly, closed it and deleted it. And now the BATF is on a bend(surely hiring many more commies)and is going around checking people’s “stuff”.
I was about to order 2 80% lowers yesterday and meant to. Now I just look for someone to order a CNC which they will promptly sell to an unknown because they’re just an old woman and don’t know how it got on their account. At least I have a tankful220 gallons) of propane and half a ton of cans. FEFEFH’s. BTW, I asked yesterday if you know why I have to sign in like I’m registering every time. Never had it happen before. Different computer, same email and same mifi. I’m stumped.
Interesting but the linked article is a little dated. To decline the pop up for their newsletter you have to click text that says, “no thanks, I support socialism.” Funny, but a little too cute by half.
