          Why Libertarians Don't Win Elections      Cache   Translate Page      
Libertarians don't win elections

If you're unhappy with both Democrats and Republicans, you're not alone. Nearly everyone says they are disappointed with their own party and many long for an alternative on Election Day.

So it would seem that Libertarians, who embrace key policy positions of both major parties, and tend to be hardcore gun rights supporters, should be able to win a fair number of elections. But they don't. Why?

It's true that both major parties rig the system against third parties, such as creating laws that limit access to state ballots. It's also true that a winner-take-all system of elections favors a two-party system, where citizens are hesitant to "waste" their votes on third-party candidates with a low probability of winning.

However, these structural hurdles are not why Libertarians lose elections. The answer is much simpler, more obvious, and considerably more distressing.

Before I reveal the answer, let me explain that while I am a registered Republican, I am just as displeased with my party as anyone else. In fact, I consider my political outlook to be libertarian, favoring smaller government, lower taxes, and greater individual liberty on all fronts. So I have no beef with the Libertarian Party on many matters of policy.

I believe it would be healthy for Republicans and Democrats to be challenged by third parties to move beyond simple partisan warfare and seek something more than tribal conflict and greater consolidation of power.

Unfortunately, I doubt this challenge will come from Libertarians anytime soon because of the nature of the candidates themselves.

Why don't Libertarians win elections? Because they don't want to. Let that sink in. Then let me explain what I mean.

When you look at typical Republican or Democratic candidates, you see men and women who have a burning desire for public service. Most have a long history of public engagement, often going back to their school years. They attend city council meetings, serve on school boards, intern with legislators, run and win in hometown elections.

They enjoy the political process and take advantage of every civic opportunity available to them. When it comes time to run for higher office, they have a solid resume full of accomplishments and experience and a wide network of contacts and supporters enabling them to raise money and mount a campaign.

But when you look at the typical Libertarian candidate, you see something quite different. Most seem to hate politics and rant about the corrupt "system." They often show no interest in government or public service until they suddenly decide to run for office.

That means they have little or no political experience, few contacts, and no practical means of raising money. And what offices do they seek? President. Governor. U.S. Senate. Positions that are ridiculously out of reach.

To make matters worse, many Libertarian candidates lack the social skills necessary to garner support. They'll debate you all day long, but fail to recognize the difference between argument and persuasion, which is the key to winning any election. Voters cast their ballots for people they "like," not just for those they think are "right."

The old joke about Libertarians caring more about winning the argument than winning the election tends to be true. Far too many come across as somewhere between entitled and downright rude. And their supporters tend to relentlessly troll on social media, attacking anyone who doesn't support their candidate.

Every election season, Libertarian candidates or their supporters contact Buckeye Firearms Association. Do they ask for support? Do they suggest a meeting to discuss their campaign? Do they attend our events or spend time building relationships? Nope. Right out of the gate, they email, tweet, or troll on Facebook with confrontational messages: "You guys are idiots! You're establishment suck-ups! Why don't you support principled candidates?" Not exactly a great way to garner support.

And unlike major party candidates, who seek long-term relationships, and tend to stay in contact even when they're not running for office, Libertarians generally vanish after the election and are not heard from until they decide to run again.

Take for example this year's Libertarian candidate for Ohio Governor, Travis Irvine. According to his website bio, he's never held any public office. He says he interned in Washington D.C., though it's not clear if that was related to politics or something else. If it were for a Senator or Representative, you'd think he would specifically mention that.

His political accomplishments seem to be limited primarily to writing articles and making videos, and he appears to have no respect for "climbing the political ladder." Translation: I don't have public service experience and don't want to.

In addition, I looked at his financial filing with the Ohio Secretary of State before the 2018 general election, and his campaign had less than $2,000 on hand. Less than $2,000 for a gubernatorial campaign? I know Girl Scouts who raise more money selling Thin Mints.

Don't misunderstand. I'm not making fun of Irvine or any other Libertarian candidate. However, politics is serious business, and casting a vote is the most important civic act for any American citizen. 

It begs the question, does any of this sound like a serious candidate? Does it sound like someone who honestly wants to win an election or has the ability to run a state with 11.6 million residents and a budget of more than $70 billion?

Irvine got 1.8% of the vote for Governor (77,184) vs. 46.4% for Democrat Richard Cordray (2,005,627) and 50.7% for Republican Mike DeWine (2,187,619). That's about what you'd expect from a candidate with no political experience, few contacts, and no practical means of raising money.

But who do supporters blame for the loss? After pointing out that BFA could not waste an endorsement on someone with zero chance of winning, one Facebook troll echoed the earnest but unself-aware excuse I've heard election after election: "Well, if we had more people support us instead of establishment candidates, maybe we'd win elections."

Exactly. 

Libertarians tend to be highly intelligent people, so it can't be that they don't understand how elections work. It must be that they simply have no intention of winning.

Libertarian candidates seem content to play the role of contrarian, bash the political process, and wage verbal warfare from the safety of the sidelines. And that's the way it will remain until the party gets serious. They need candidates who embrace public service and commit to doing the work necessary to gain real-world experience, work their way up through the ranks, built broad support, persuade voters, and win elections.

After all, elections are tests of political viability. The skills necessary to win an election are largely the same skills necessary to govern. And if you can't win elections, you can't govern.

It's ironic that Libertarians so adamantly reject the idea of free riders and unearned handouts because that's exactly what they want from voters. Libertarians need to learn that they'll win only when they earn victories in the free market of politics.

“The Gig Is Up. Thrive in the Gig Economy, Where Old Jobs Are Obsolete and Freelancing Is the Future” by Olga Mizrahi (Greenleaf Book Group, 2018, 176 pages, ISBN: 9781626344938; $16.95

As the advantages of full-time employment diminish—with health insurance, pensions, and other benefits fading away—freelance work is an increasingly appealing alternative. Gig work can offer relative freedom and steady financial rewards. In this brief how-to, educator Olga Mizrahi shows how to utilize third-party apps such as Upwork or Guru to break into the freelance market and build a reputation. She describes how to move from apps to cultivating your personal client base and even hiring a staff. Mizrahi, an instructor at the University of California, Irvine’s Continuing Education program, offers a quick, peppy survey of the issues freelancers face—from acquiring insurance and planning for retirement to managing their time and contending with bad reviews. Her manual is an apt primer for newbies in the gig economy.

“Leveraged Learning. How the Disruption of Education Helps Lifelong Learners and Experts with Something to Teach” by Danny Iny (Ideapress Publishing, 2018, 250 pages, ISBN: 9781940858692; $24.95)

Business and employment are undergoing radical change, but higher education remains static, mired in the past. As such, says Danny Iny, the CEO of an online business education company, college may prove to be a losing wager for some young people. Many of them, he contends, would do much better pursuing nontraditional learning programs. And that is his line of work; he specializes in providing educational opportunities to people who want to gain useful knowledge and skills. Iny re-examines higher education and offers advice—some of it controversial—to learners, educators, and businesses. Executives and HR officials responsible for hiring new employees can benefit from discussing the pros and cons of his take on higher education. At the end of each chapter, Iny includes “learning self-assessment” exercises readers can use to test their understanding of the ideas he presents. This makes it a useful workbook for students and professionals. Lifelong learners, prospective college students, and Learning professionals will find food for thought in Iny’s contrarian overview.

“Finish. Give Yourself the Gift of Done” by Jon Acuff (Portfolio, 2017, 208 pages, ISBN: 9781591847625; $27)

Setting new goals is easy, but finishing them is hard. In this blockbuster bestseller, blogger and popular speaker Jon Acuff shares his plans to help you actually achieve your goals. Acuff explains that perfectionism, the main blockade to reaching your objectives, delivers a negative message: the lie that something isn’t worth doing unless it’s perfect. People also fail to reach their goals because they set targets that are too ambitious. Acuff advises cutting your goal in half, breaking it down into smaller, more achievable chunks. He also advocates doubling your timeline, choosing how you will fail and making your goals enjoyable. You’re more likely to finish tasks that are fun, exciting, and easy. Acuff goes off on long tangents, but his stories remain funny and relatable. getAbstract recommends his guidance as a helping hand for everyone who ever sought to complete a goal and just fell short.

          Why Libertarians Don't Win Elections      Cache   Translate Page      
Libertarians don't win elections

If you're unhappy with both Democrats and Republicans, you're not alone. Nearly everyone says they are disappointed with their own party and many long for an alternative on Election Day.

So it would seem that Libertarians, who embrace key policy positions of both major parties, and tend to be hardcore gun rights supporters, should be able to win a fair number of elections. But they don't. Why?

It's true that both major parties rig the system against third parties, such as creating laws that limit access to state ballots. It's also true that a winner-take-all system of elections favors a two-party system, where citizens are hesitant to "waste" their votes on third-party candidates with a low probability of winning.

However, these structural hurdles are not why Libertarians lose elections. The answer is much simpler, more obvious, and considerably more distressing.

Before I reveal the answer, let me explain that while I am a registered Republican, I am just as displeased with my party as anyone else. In fact, I consider my political outlook to be libertarian, favoring smaller government, lower taxes, and greater individual liberty on all fronts. So I have no beef with the Libertarian Party on many matters of policy.

I believe it would be healthy for Republicans and Democrats to be challenged by third parties to move beyond simple partisan warfare and seek something more than tribal conflict and greater consolidation of power.

Unfortunately, I doubt this challenge will come from Libertarians anytime soon because of the nature of the candidates themselves.

Why don't Libertarians win elections? Because they don't want to. Let that sink in. Then let me explain what I mean.

When you look at typical Republican or Democratic candidates, you see men and women who have a burning desire for public service. Most have a long history of public engagement, often going back to their school years. They attend city council meetings, serve on school boards, intern with legislators, run and win in hometown elections.

They enjoy the political process and take advantage of every civic opportunity available to them. When it comes time to run for higher office, they have a solid resume full of accomplishments and experience and a wide network of contacts and supporters enabling them to raise money and mount a campaign.

But when you look at the typical Libertarian candidate, you see something quite different. Most seem to hate politics and rant about the corrupt "system." They often show no interest in government or public service until they suddenly decide to run for office.

That means they have little or no political experience, few contacts, and no practical means of raising money. And what offices do they seek? President. Governor. U.S. Senate. Positions that are ridiculously out of reach.

To make matters worse, many Libertarian candidates lack the social skills necessary to garner support. They'll debate you all day long, but fail to recognize the difference between argument and persuasion, which is the key to winning any election. Voters cast their ballots for people they "like," not just for those they think are "right."

The old joke about Libertarians caring more about winning the argument than winning the election tends to be true. Far too many come across as somewhere between entitled and downright rude. And their supporters tend to relentlessly troll on social media, attacking anyone who doesn't support their candidate.

Every election season, Libertarian candidates or their supporters contact Buckeye Firearms Association. Do they ask for support? Do they suggest a meeting to discuss their campaign? Do they attend our events or spend time building relationships? Nope. Right out of the gate, they email, tweet, or troll on Facebook with confrontational messages: "You guys are idiots! You're establishment suck-ups! Why don't you support principled candidates?" Not exactly a great way to garner support.

And unlike major party candidates, who seek long-term relationships, and tend to stay in contact even when they're not running for office, Libertarians generally vanish after the election and are not heard from until they decide to run again.

Take for example this year's Libertarian candidate for Ohio Governor, Travis Irvine. According to his website bio, he's never held any public office. He says he interned in Washington D.C., though it's not clear if that was related to politics or something else. If it were for a Senator or Representative, you'd think he would specifically mention that.

His political accomplishments seem to be limited primarily to writing articles and making videos, and he appears to have no respect for "climbing the political ladder." Translation: I don't have public service experience and don't want to.

In addition, I looked at his financial filing with the Ohio Secretary of State before the 2018 general election, and his campaign had less than $2,000 on hand. Less than $2,000 for a gubernatorial campaign? I know Girl Scouts who raise more money selling Thin Mints.

Don't misunderstand. I'm not making fun of Irvine or any other Libertarian candidate. However, politics is serious business, and casting a vote is the most important civic act for any American citizen. 

It begs the question, does any of this sound like a serious candidate? Does it sound like someone who honestly wants to win an election or has the ability to run a state with 11.6 million residents and a budget of more than $70 billion?

Irvine got 1.8% of the vote for Governor (77,184) vs. 46.4% for Democrat Richard Cordray (2,005,627) and 50.7% for Republican Mike DeWine (2,187,619). That's about what you'd expect from a candidate with no political experience, few contacts, and no practical means of raising money.

But who do supporters blame for the loss? After pointing out that BFA could not waste an endorsement on someone with zero chance of winning, one Facebook troll echoed the earnest but unself-aware excuse I've heard election after election: "Well, if we had more people support us instead of establishment candidates, maybe we'd win elections."

Exactly. 

Libertarians tend to be highly intelligent people, so it can't be that they don't understand how elections work. It must be that they simply have no intention of winning.

Libertarian candidates seem content to play the role of contrarian, bash the political process, and wage verbal warfare from the safety of the sidelines. And that's the way it will remain until the party gets serious. They need candidates who embrace public service and commit to doing the work necessary to gain real-world experience, work their way up through the ranks, built broad support, persuade voters, and win elections.

After all, elections are tests of political viability. The skills necessary to win an election are largely the same skills necessary to govern. And if you can't win elections, you can't govern.

It's ironic that Libertarians so adamantly reject the idea of free riders and unearned handouts because that's exactly what they want from voters. Libertarians need to learn that they'll win only when they earn victories in the free market of politics.

          Shaffer: A Tragedy in the Making?: The Decline of Law and the Return of Power in International Trade Relations      Cache   Translate Page      
Gregory Shaffer (Univ. of California, Irvine - Law) has posted A Tragedy in the Making?: The Decline of Law and the Return of Power in International Trade Relations (Yale Journal of International Law, forthcoming). Here's the abstract:
It is the end of an era—potentially the close of a semblance of the rule of law in international trade relations. This article assesses the U.S. challenge to the Appellate Body and binding dispute settlement system of the World Trade Organization. Part I examines the decline of law and return of power in international trade relations. Part II explains the rationales behind the U.S. challenge to the WTO judiciary in terms of domestic politics, the rise of China, and concerns over a fundamental imbalance between WTO political and judicial processes. Part III analyzes the potential and most likely future of WTO dispute settlement—either (1) the replacement of the Appellate Body with member agreement to binding dispute settlement, potentially with ad hoc appeals, on only a reciprocity basis, thus potentially excluding the United States; or (2) reversion to the former GATT system where parties can effectively veto the adoption of a panel report. For over two decades, the Appellate Body operated as an authoritative, quasi-constitutional, international court to resolve conflicts and develop jurisprudence. In retrospect, it was a remarkable experiment in international relations. The United States and the world may soon regret its demise.

We find out Donna is no longer in the picture but no details or any mention of how she passed away is revealed. Through seamless flashbacks, a young Donna (Lily James) who just graduated from Oxford, discovers herself on the small Greek isle. Her aspirations, her romantic life dating three guys (one of whom is Sophie's biological father), her pregnancy then her decision to start a bed and breakfast to support herself. All of these situations are naturally filled with Abba songs.

The same cast (but some of them older) is present in full force, singing their hearts out, belting Abba tunes - some of them familiar songs while others are songs I've never heard before. The story shifts effortlessly between the young Donna and the present day with Sophie trying her best to keep the memory of her mother alive through the Hotel Bella Donna.

The plot is believable and works well with the songs they chose to represent each situation. Lily James is a refreshing presence as the young Donna, she does well to carry the entire movie on her shoulders and dare I mention, she sings way better than Meryl Street. 10 years is a long time difference for a sequel to come out, but the plot is simple enough, you can easily piece together the story. 

A couple of flaws - the casting of the younger men in Donna's life. They all look alike and I couldn't tell them apart and who they grow up to be. Maybe I wasn't paying too much attention in the first film so I didn't know the names of the characters Pierce Brosnan, Colin Firth and Stellan Skarsgard were portraying. I got a bit confused in the sequel. 

Now, Cher as Sophie's grandmother, What? Not credible at all, I don't how and where it is possible for Cher to be Meryl Streep's mother. Then Ruby (Cher) whole connection with the Andy Garcia character is just plain stupid. Probably just a silly excuse for Cher to sing "Fernando".  

I don't have an issue with characters bursting into song while acting. Clearly everyone knows this is a musical. I love most of the Abba songs and it was a good walk down memory lane hearing songs I grew up listening to during my childhood. It was also a good introduction to their songs which didn't fare well at the music charts.
