This is not our photoshop. This is the picture he actually uses on his Facebook campaign site.

Meet Craig Brittain! He is hoping to replace Jeff Flake and be the next senator from Arizona. He is also, if not the actual worst human being on the planet, a strong competitor for the title.

From 2011 until 2013, Brittain operated the revenge porn website “Is Anybody Down?” — a blatant copy of fellow revenge porn douchebro Hunter Moore’s site “Is Anyone Up?” — where men could post nude pictures of their ex-girlfriends, along with their names, addresses and phone numbers. It was shut down by the FTC, but not because of the revenge porn — rather because Brittain also put up fake lawyer ads on the site from a guy named “David Blade III, The Takedown Lawyer” who claimed he would be able to help women get their pictures taken down for $250 a pop.

In emails to attorney Marc Randazza, “David Blade III” claimed to be a college friend of Brittain and a New York-based public defender (although in an interview with CBS, Brittain claimed to not actually know who the mystery lawyer even was).

He also claimed that his revenge porn site was actually doing all these women and society a mitzvah:

“We actually think the fact they’re taking these pictures is a good thing, and an acceptable thing. We’re not trying to shame them or scrutinize them. We’re trying to entertain the world. And also to take away a lot of the stigma that’s associated with this, because we don’t believe these people should be shamed. It may be tough for some of the first people that have been posted. But as time goes on and this gets bigger, this will become more and more of an acceptable thing in society.”

Surprise, all of the emails sent by “David Blade III” were sent from the same IP address as Brittain’s Colorado Springs home. Whoops! So yes, it was a big extortion scheme, and not a plan to make the world a better and less shameful place by posting nude pictures of women without their consent.

In 2015, in hopes of repairing his image, Brittain sent a notice to Google demanding that they scrub the internet of all information related to him and his revenge porn site and the FTC’s actions against him. That did not work out so well!

You may not think it is possible for Craig Brittain to be worse than that, but you would be mistaken! In March of 2017, Mic reported that Craig had flown into a racist rage against a New York-based venture capitalist who had reached out to him in order to ask why Craig had been sending so many requests to his female friends on Facebook.

“Anyone who’s butthurt by a friend request is a loser anyway,” Brittain responded. He said they should “find a safe space,” and that “they should be honored to even be in my presence. … I’m a fucking genius and a legend.”

He also said:

If [these women] have problems, they can message their problems to me and I’ll tell them where they can shove their problems. :)

Otherwise, talking in circles, it’s really cowardly and unprofessional, so fuck their opinions.

Women in general should be grateful that men are now allowing them to have opinions.

Yay for progress and diversity, allowing less qualified women to participate in what is traditionally a qualified men’s world.

And:

“You’ll have to deal with guys like me soon. Middle America will take over California. And we don’t do the PC bullshit. You’ll have to fucking include us one way or another. So you better get over your fucking feelings. We’re fine with your progressive bullshit in our space, but you’re not going to cast out our views. Free speech is our right.”

Oh my, what a pleasant human being!

As reported by Dean Sterling Jones at Shooting The Messenger, following Brittain’s announcement that he would be running for Jeff Flake’s Arizona seat, social media expert Michael Palladino shared threatening messages that Brittain had sent a year ago to a woman he had seen on Tinder.

In response, Brittain claimed that the messages from “Craig R. Brittain” were not really from him and that someone was pretending to be him in order to ruin his sterling reputation.

He then reported the profile to Facebook.

This would all be very believable, of course, if the alleged impostor had not been the Facebook admin for Brittain’s failed ridesharing service, Dryvver.

Whoops, AGAIN.

But hey. Let’s give Craig the benefit of the doubt for a moment. Maybe, despite being a terrible person otherwise, he has really awesome political views and ideas that would make him a great senator.

Ha! Just kidding, he does not. Keeping with his theme of “everything that sucks about the internet,” Craig Brittain is an anarcho-capitalist running on a platform of “taxation is theft.”

For those of you unfamiliar with this particular brand of stupid, let me break it down for you. Over the past several years, sociopathic internet assholes have fallen madly in love with the economic and social policies of political theorist Murray Rothbard. What they want is for literally everything in society to be privatized — and yes, this includes fire departments and the police. They want all social safety nets abolished, and they want to not ever have to pay taxes for anything, because “taxation is THEFT.”

Here is a thing Rothbard wrote about how parents should be allowed to starve their children to death, and also sell their children in a “free baby market.” What could possibly go wrong!

Applying our theory to parents and children, this means that a parent does not have the right to aggress against his children, but also that the parent should not have a legal obligation to feed, clothe, or educate his children, since such obligations would entail positive acts coerced upon the parent and depriving the parent of his rights. The parent therefore may not murder or mutilate his child, and the law properly outlaws a parent from doing so. But the parent should have the legal right not to feed the child, i.e., to allow it to die. The law, therefore, may not properly compel the parent to feed a child or to keep it alive. (Again, whether or not a parent has a moral rather than a legally enforceable obligation to keep his child alive is a completely separate question.) This rule allows us to solve such vexing questions as: should a parent have the right to allow a deformed baby to die (e.g., by not feeding it)? The answer is of course yes, following a fortiori from the larger right to allow any baby, whether deformed or not, to die. (Though, as we shall see below, in a libertarian society the existence of a free baby market will bring such “neglect” down to a minimum.)

He was also an advocate of historical revisionism who palled around with Holocaust deniers. Internet trolls LOVE him.

Here is the part where Craig gets rid of taxation, and yet somehow still has a budget to balance:

Ending Taxation and the Federal Reserve. Protecting Speech.
Craig will work to repeal the 16th Amendment and the Federal Reserve Act. He will also push for a revolutionary but economically sound balanced budget via a Debt Brake.

The Federal Government, like the citizens it governs, cannot be allowed to spend money that it does not have and “pass the buck” to the working and middle class who are already stretched thin.

Craig believes the First Amendment protects all speech without limits. He will repeal many unconstitutional regulations on speech.

And here is the part where he replaces the VA by “allowing” veterans “immediate access to private healthcare,” and also build the wall, with no tax money:

Immediate Care for Veterans. Peace and Security for Citizens.
No more waiting for the VA for care. Craig’s platform includes a bill that will give veterans immediate access to private healthcare.

Craig will work directly with President Trump, Vice President Pence and others to make sure No Veteran is Left Behind.

Craig also strongly believes in the US military as a defensive force and not the world’s police. We will bring the troops home and stop fighting Endless Wars.

He will also author a bill allowing citizens to defend their borders according to Trump’s “Build The Wall” plan.

Or maybe there will be tax money to pay for these things, but only for things people choose to pay taxes for.

Craig will author a Constitutional Amendment which allows individuals to opt out of any government program that they do not wish to participate in or give money to, including Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security, and guarantee full immediate refunds to citizens who paid into government programs.

What if people don’t want to pay for the wall though? What if they don’t want to pay for private healthcare for veterans? Or are the veterans supposed to pay for the private healthcare themselves? I mean, if we’re going with a totally free market here, where no one has to pay taxes, that’s what should happen, right? Also, if all taxation is voluntary, what if no one wants to pay for Craig Brittain to be a senator?

They never really figure out the details of this stuff on 4chan and Reddit for some reason! Mostly just the parts where they don’t have to pay taxes and get to smugly watch poor people die from lack of “personal responsibility.” But still, they want it desperately — and I’m convinced there are enough of them that they are going to be a problem in the future.

Craig Brittain is an astoundingly bad human being, in nearly every way it is possible to be a bad human being. Before Donald Trump was elected, I’d say he had no shot at becoming a senator; these days I’m not so sure. There are more of him than anyone realizes, their numbers are increasing, and sometimes I worry that the only thing that’s going to stop them from wanting horrible things is when they finally get them. And that’s not going to be a very good time for the rest of us, either.

    Since Trump decided to run more and more garbage men are coming out and being public about their shitty views.

          I don’t think it’s wise to rule any option out.

      • jesterpunk

        I thought the MRA/ Sovereign Citizen/ garbage men wanted their own shitty country somewhere that they could be shitty all the time with no taxes or rules?

          I would support them in that aim. Maybe somewhere really inhospitable? One of those islands of floating plastic?

        • Natalie Au Natural Hedonist

          Yes, let’s gather them and all the forced birther crowd and ship them to the tip of Texas (Bordering Mexico natch), and put a large wall around them. It would solve so many problems.

            Can we ship them all to Mar-A-Lago instead? It already has a fence to mark the borders.

      I’ve used a range of responses over the years, from ‘you kiss your mum with that mouth?’ to ‘oh piss off boy, I’d break you and you know it’ but my most recently used was a yelled ‘fucking hell mate, why are boys so fucking emotional? Make your mind up, you’re getting testerical!’ to a guy in a van with his company name on it. So I followed up with a phone call and a complaint to the business, plus a comment on their Facebook page.

      I don’t have to deal with it out here, but despite being a middle aged woman, I still get it when I’m home in the summer.

            I believe this came from a Churchill & Roosevelt conversation …
            “Suppose my neighbor’s home catches fire, and I have a length of garden hose four or five hundred feet away. If he can take my garden hose and connect it up with his hydrant, I may help him to put out his fire…I don’t say to him before that operation, “Neighbor, my garden hose cost me $15; you have to pay me $15 for it.”… I don’t want $15–I want my garden hose back after the fire is over. “

        Yeah, same with my younger cousin, who is now 32 and hsould know better. It’s always fun asking him what he did when he was unemployed for nine months. That’s when he uses the old “I paid into it!” thingy. Not all of it, ya didn’t you little shit.

  • Michael Smith

    The other day, I saw someone saying that candidates like Trump won’t succeed in the future because millennials aren’t as bigoted and ignorant as the old white men that voted Trump in. I don’t think that’s correct.

    In reality, there are plenty of bigoted and ignorant millennials, but they have beards and flannels like many of their liberal contemporaries, and so aren’t necessarily as easy to spot as old white guy in MAGA hats.

    I went to a small Catholic college. There was a movement among a decent chunk of young men there, led by a charismatic group of professors and some books, who sought to return “Men of God” to America. They droned on about how liberals had feminized American men because they want to infantilize the entire society, thus creating government dependence and, therefore, more power for the liberals. This was preached and pursued in absolute earnest. These young men, feeling deep in their souls that some birthright had been taken from them, bought it gleefully.

    It has only gotten worse.

    • Duke

      So, ratty beards aren’t enough?

      • JMP

        Never trust anyone who is too lazy to shave. Fucking Millenials. When I was young, the only people with beards were hopeless antisocial nerds who had just given up on life.

          Tch. When I was young, a beard meant you were seriously countercultural, and somewhat suspect. Mine’s been part of my look since 1979, and the few times it’s had to come off I look wrong, somehow.

          • Old town Urbandale

            ’79? Pffft. Last time I shaved was high school graduation day, in May ’75.

            I had kind of a military thing going on at the time. I looked like a narc.

          • Meccalopolis

            No doubt . I’ve been sporting a beard since long before it became fashionable.

        • Bill Diaz

          Bite me, I had to shave when I was in the Army and I will be dipped in shit and rolled in rice crispies before I work another job where there is any requirement for shaving over and above when I feel like it.

    • Everrett Fanuelli

      Agreed. The only time I heard someone say “Why are they taking over all our sports” was from a 13 year old.

    • rosenbomb

      Yup. That’s why people who say “once all the really old republicans die off, things will be fine” are completely wrong. Trump garnered plenty of white millennial votes. This is why I (as a millennial) will never be complacent again. I might live 70 more years on this earth, and I’m willing to bet we will be dealing with consequences of Trumpism for longer than that.

      • Michael Smith

        Totally.

      • goCatgo

        I believe you are right. White supremacy, isolationism, nativism, protectionism, and nationalism go way back for us. Too many people are lazy, don’t want to compete with every one in this county. But that’s not the problem going forward. Its competing with the rest of the world.

      • SecludedCompound

        This is true. I do think that the size of that group in totum is diminished in the younger generation, and the ones openly espousing it has certainly diminished. Maybe the fear of saying these things openly will become a habit, who knows. A lot of them are complete fucking idiots on everything from economics to how to treat people decently, for sure.

        But if we act like “oh well, once the olds go, everything is cake” we’re asking for trouble. Your 4chan generation has showed that well enough, even though they are a small population.

    • goCatgo

      Their ” birthright” of male white privilege is worth less and less everyday. In their lifetime, if it hasn’t happened already, they will have to COMPETE in the real world, with fewer and fewer people like themselves. In situations where only the best, brightest, and hardest working succeed, it just might not be them.

      • Michael Smith

        And that is the basis of their beef. They believe that their superior position in life was ordained by God and attempts to place them on the same level as others is a secularist attempt to remake the world. Other variants of the Men of God people exist without the religious overtones. Many people just replace God with genetics or nature.

  • Spotts1701, Porg Wrangler

    What they want is for literally everything in society to be privatized — and yes, this includes fire departments and the police.

    We tried this once, back in the Gilded Age. Fire Departments would only put out fires at buildings or houses that were insured. If the building wasn’t insured, they let it burn to the ground. And even as recently as about 10 years ago, there were still some rural fire departments who would only fight a fire if the property owner had paid their fire department fee as part of their property taxes.

    • Unmutual Tetsu Kaba

      More recently than that. There was a story in the last couple of years in Tennessee or Kentucky about that.

      • Unmutual Tetsu Kaba

        Found it 9/29/2010 in Obion county, TN Gene Cranick lost his house with 3 dogs, a cat and all their possessions over a $75 fee. But you’re right that was 11 years ago. Time flies.

    • brucej

      What they want is a brutal rule by the strongest, what they don’t realize is that they’d still end up serfs.

      • JMP

        Yeah, “libertarianism” is just feudal authoritarianism justified by a bunch of pseudo-intellectual big words that no actual philosophers take seriously.

        • I had this discussion with co worker millenial. In her head, libertarian means between conservative and liberal.
          I asked her how she was going to like every road being a toll road, what without taxes, and oh yeah, you can kiss our jobs goodby since they are based on the government

      • Unmutual Tetsu Kaba

        Yeah, they think they’d all be the lords and not the peasants.

        • JMP

      And there were fist fights between rival fire departments over whose fire it was, while it burned to the ground. Not to mention cop vs firefighter fights.

  • Michael Smith

    A Facebook friend of mine is a huge libertarian (he’s very unintelligent, he used to get drunk and smash bottles over his head in college) and he posts “taxation is theft” memes daily. He also claims to be above American politics and talks about how “cute” it is that people think there’s a difference between Republicans and Democrats.

    a) are his supporters supposed to clap if they really believe in him so he doesn’t evaporate entirely?

    b) should have posted David Komie ads.

    c) so he supports forcing women to expose themselves to the public because they should not be ashamed of being exposed to the public? sounds legit! wonder where he stands on abortion, sexual assault and domestic violence…

    d) aren’t all revenge porn sites extortion schemes? I thought it was like, “whoops, I did not know that girl whose photos of trying on bras to get approval from mom before charging them to the family credit card was 14. I just knew that she would pay to have me take them down and pass them onto another friend who she would have to pay and so on and so forth! I am innocent of your child porn charges! and she was wearing a training bra anyway! which she should not be at all ashamed of is what I was trying to show!”

    e) he’s a PROFESSIONAL lady harasser who is a genius for harassing women and also too a legend in women harassers circles. GOT IT! sounds like SENATE MATERIAL!

    f) is he referring to himself using the royal “we” or does he let his campaign interns troll Tinder and harass women on his behalf? I AM JUST ASKING QUESTIONS! I support delegation!

    g) this genius and legend couldn’t even come up with his own platform? that is every Libertarian candidate’s first plank.

    h) I didn’t read his platform on the wall as funding it. I read it as “MAKE VIGILANTES BORDER PATROL AGAIN! MINUTE MEN!”

  • Angela Ruzzo

    I watched a documentary last night called “The Story of Women and Power” in which British historian Amanda Vickery profiles the 300 year-long campaign by women for political and sex equality in Britain. In Episode 3, British women over age 30 finally got the right to vote in 1918, but almost immediately there was a huge misogynistic backlash against women. Novelist Gilbert Frankau wrote in a magazine article in 1924 “She is an idiot, our girl of 1924. Why not let her have her own way, as you let puppies have their own way, until she commits some activity so ghastly, that even the kindest owner must have recourse to the chain in the back yard, and the stick behind the hat stand. That chain and stick are still the prerogative of us mere males, whom your modern girl affects to treat so lightly.” This all sounds very familiar, doesn’t it?

    • Canned Covfefe

      Can one still watch?

      • Natalie Au Natural Hedonist

        plus c’est la même chose.

    • Teecha

      *Every* step forward is met with misogynistic backlash. I recall reading Susan Faludi’s book and not really wanting to believe what she was saying – but I was a young teenager then.
      I heard a lecture by Natasha Walters and then read her book ‘living dolls’ which really affected me and made me consider my interactions with young women and how I can best support them in negotiating their way in a world which often really and actively hates them.

      • Roadstergal

        I still have that Faludi book on my shelf in the living room. It never ceases to have relevance.

          You should try the Walters one, if you feel like a depressing afternoon.

      • Lord Jim
      • Angela Ruzzo

        The last bit of Episode 3 is all about how women are not continuing to make the progress they should be making, because we still have a long way to go.

        I get sick every time I visit my nieces – both in their 30’s – because they bought into the “living doll” philosophy their mother taught them. They are both gorgeous, but they both hate their bodies, their noses, their hair, they won’t leave the house without full makeup and the latest fashions. They don’t love themselves for themselves, and then they get upset when other people don’t love them for themselves. It’s a vicious Catch-22.

      • Carole

        I feel like the Laffer Curve describes womenz liberation over time instead

      • Angela Ruzzo

        I remember that too. I remember being sexually harassed at my very first full-time job in 1978, and being asked to train a male intern in 1980 and then watching him get promoted over me and be paid more. What I remember most from the 80’s is the Big Hair. Many of my friends got married in the early 80’s, and when I look at the wedding reception photos, I cringe at all the Farrah Fawcett hairdos. One of my friends had a Pastel Rainbow wedding – the 6 bridesmaids were each in a different pastel color and made up a pale rainbow. (I thought it was ghastly even then).

    • Natalie Au Natural Hedonist

      That is where those nasty swine, the evangelists want to take us. We really must slap them down again, with votes.

      The average libertarian usually falls under the “5-minute” rule. When they start talking, for the first 5 minutes you find yourself nodding along in agreement (often topics like ending the drug war, and maybe avoiding some of our international “adventures”). Then at EXACTLY 5:00:01, they say something so soul-shatteringly stupid that all you can do is cock your head sideways like a Labrador retriever who heard a strange noise in the background.

    Let’s get back to modern monetary theory, Robyn. One of the first principles is that taxes don’t pay for spending. This is in a sovereign country which issues its own currency and its debt is in its own currency.
    A sovereign country like this can buy anything for sale in its own currency.

    • You can’t tax and spend your way into prosperity, no matter how hard both parties try.

    • Illuminotquite

      I lived in AZ for 17 years, from July 2000-August 2017. The whole state isn’t overrun with morons like this, but there are some areas that absolutely are, being filled with Rednecks and Retirees, the voting blocks that are TRULY represented by the (R) these days. The Phoenix metro area (Maricopa County), with around 4 million people and the vast majority of the population of the state, is pretty purple, with Trump barely pulling it out in 2016 but most people staying home. I think a LOT more Maricopa County voters would vote for Kyrsten Sinema, based on what I saw when I was there. She’s a Democrat, but she’s unafraid to vote across the aisle, which helps with Red-leaning voters. She’s also openly bisexual, which helps with Blue-leaning voters. Obviously not the only issues, just the first to pop into my head. She pushes the right voter buttons for that race, IMO, not Chemtrail Kelli Ward or this douchebag here.

    ‘Taxation is theft.’
    It would be more accurate to say ‘Taxation is extortion.’
    I agree, but that does not mean we have to stop doing it. Sometimes a really bad thing is acceptable because there is no better thing. How are you going to pay for stuff like roads if you won’t use the threat of violence (or threat of removal of privileges)?
    Numpty, you have to offer a better alternative. Your plan won’t work.
    You want an idea for a better world? Read the Utopias and Dystopias, they will give you plenty of food for thought.
    I propose you read B.F. Skinner’s Walden Two, it has the closest thing to a blueprint for a viable non-violent form of society. If it will work is debatable, it has been tried and the attempt are very hit and miss, with not a lot of long-term hits.

    • MC Planck

      Taxes are not extortion. They are royalty payments for the use of intellectual property. If you don’t want to pay society’s price for society’s intellectual property, you don’t have to! But then you do have to invent your own fire, literacy, and wheel.

      As long as someone uses language, they are using common property. And they can bloody well pay the going rate for it.

      • ((( Augustus )))

        it’s not intellectual property, it’s actual property — roads, water, sewer, schools, police and fire, trillions of dollars worth of military equipment, etc.

        I’m not sure how you got to the point of intellectual property being what taxes pay for

        • MC Planck

          Because they pay for that, too. The physical property could (theoretically) be provided by some Libertarian privatization scheme. But the intellectual property that we inherited from our parents and pass on to our children cannot be replaced, developed, or sustained by a Libertarian model; thus showing that Libertarianism is a dead-end. It literally feeds off the corpse of the society it kills, and when that’s gone, it dies.

      • Intellectual property doesn’t exist either, the supposed ownership of an idea is a form of censorship

        • phoenix00

          Concrete isn’t very intellectual, brah.

          • Only a fool or a tyrant would presume to own an idea.

          • phoenix00

            Only a fool thinks an item that exists in matter is “an idea”

        • MC Planck

          Only a man who has never produced intellectual property could say that.

          It’s actually hard to make intellectual property. It takes work. Other people’s lives are genuinely improved by it. That makes it worth getting paid for.

          If nobody got paid for intellectual property, you wouldn’t have any video games, movies, or comic books. How would the people who make those things eat?

          (Also, no one owns an idea; they own their expression of it.)

        • MC Planck

          Spoken by a person who has obviously never produced intellectual property.

          IP is hard work. It takes effort. It makes people’s lives better. It costs time and energy to produce. If no one got paid for it, we wouldn’t have science, literature, or technology. There would be no video games, movies, or comic books.

He’s got some terrible pro-life views, but he’s also a legitimately nice, non-confrontational way. In all the arguments I’ve seen him get into, he’s always the one trying to deescalate and reconcile things.

    So how does he get something like that anarcho-capitalist crap in his head? From what I gather, it’s a terribly self-centered and short-sighted philosophy for a follower of the Prince of Peace. How do you square all the altruism and charity of Christianity with an outlook that would replace everything with for-profit sharks? It really bothers me some nights.

    This asshole sounds sort of like my Son in Law. We no longer speak.

    • Natalie Au Natural Hedonist

      Wise decision, my sympathy for your daughter. (or son, as the case may be.)

  • I wasn’t contacted before this was published for comment (I mean, no surprise, this is the era where the press doesn’t ask for comments) so I came here to respond to some of the things posted here (not the fake news. I’ll skip past all of that.)

    Let’s start with Rothbard proposing a baby market, which is commonly misinterpreted (and has been debunked before many times.) He’s talking about a private adoption market, not a market for prostitution. He also points out that while the parent has the right to free will, if they choose to be abusive they can be punished for being abusive. (This is how the Constitution works, we punish AFTER guilt, not before.)

    It’s an argument for the government not watching over the shoulder of parents and punishing only in the case of direct harm, rather than the current system that attempts to preemptively decide the fitness of parents. Who does the preemptive label of ‘unfit parent’ hurt? Single parents and especially LGBT parents – who don’t fit the traditional model of parenting and thus are deemed unfit by the government, regularly, even though they’re perfectly fit to be parents.

    This is the only Rothbard argument that ever gets brought up because it’s a lazy cut-and-paste talking point. If you cut-and-paste talking points for your articles (plagiarism) instead of making your own unique arguments, you should feel bad (but this is Wonkette, there are no ethics here).

    If you’re against this, it’s because you’re blissfully ignorant of just how bad government childcare is.

    Adoption should be deregulated because right now it prevents people (especially LGBT people, who are just as capable of being good parents) from adopting. If you have any experience with our current child care system – it’s awful. Many kids who should have been adopted years ago wind up in group homes rife with abuse and neglect. The government should not decide who can marry, or who can adopt.

    Historically, marriage and adoption licenses were enacted to promote bigotry.
    I’d overturn both of them.

    Let’s talk about the math in the budget.

    The average taxpayer in Switzerland pays 0.74%-1% annually in Federal tax, with most taxes paid for at the Cantonal (local) level. They have full national (some say ‘universal’) health care, a completely balanced budget, and the mechanism scales. They enacted the Debt Brake in 2003 and cut their percentage of public debt from above 70% to below 23% of their GDP.

    Before someone jumps in and says “Switzerland is small!” math is scalable. The same math that works at 5 people will work at 5 million or 5 billion. Math doesn’t change based on population. Financial math either works or it doesn’t – and Switzerland’s math works.

    The cost of health care pays for itself, so I support full individualized health care for every US citizen, with full access to grandfathered plans. The cost of building the border wall is $8 billion, a drop in the bucket when the Debt Brake cuts the current $4.1T annual budget to about $1.4T over 5 years, while also cutting the costs of goods and services. That $2.7T margin is where the money is coming from.

    Those who do not need health care can opt out, allowing those with the immediate need for care to be prioritized. This, again, is what Switzerland already does, successfully – as do many other countries which have private supplemental healthcare under the European Model. I hear a lot of Democrats talk about the European Model, but then when I show them the guts of the model, they question it. It’s really odd considering that I have a great understanding of the intricacies of the European Model (which is CAPITALIST, not SOCIALIST).

    This also ends coverage windows. If you need health care, you can get it 24/7/365 under my plan. Read: No one will die.

    I’m not going to change the VA itself – it’ll still be there – I’m simply going to make sure that it is AN option rather than THE option.

    You clipped like twenty of my other positions out. You know, like the part where I end the Drug War, Constitutionally decriminalize marijuana, reform Criminal Justice, End the Federal Reserve, get us out of wars and away from Fentanyl.

    You don’t have to like me, but let’s look at my opponents for a second:

    1. Kyrsten Sinema, who is sponsored by the pharma lobbies that want to keep marijuana illegal and funded and supported by people including John Kapoor who bribed physicians to prescribe Fentanyl, which kills 15,000-20,000 people per year. Oh, and she’s for the Wall and basically a Republican, but she’s bisexual and so the intolerant old boys have chased her out of the GOP – she votes with Trump over half of the time, basically a Republican running as a Democrat.

    So there’s no Blue Wave, you’re getting a Republican one way or another.

    I recommend Antonia Farzan’s great article in the New Times about Sinema’s voting record.

    2. Kelli Ward, who I worked as part of the campaign of between July 2015 and January 2016, who is Steve Bannon’s puppet candidate, and also the recipient of pharma money, who raised State Taxes on the working class in Arizona as a State Senator and wrote a grand total of 6 bills in 2 years (that’s one every 4 months).

    She wrote an anti-abortion bill that didn’t prevent a single abortion. It cost local hospitals millions of dollars to prevent phantom abortions that weren’t happening in the first place. She’s never written an actual bill regarding health care, the military, taxes, immigration, or anything of relevance.

    Did I mention she treats her campaign staff like crap? Ask Dustin Stockton, Jen Lawrence, or anyone who worked on her 2016 campaign. Don’t vote for a bad boss. Just don’t do it. If you abuse your campaign volunteers you don’t deserve to win.

    Anyways, voters – overlook the fake news hype and the personal attacks and come talk to me. If you do, you’ll find I have great plans for how to fix a lot of these things, and I’m willing to listen – unlike our current Senators John McCain and Jeff Flake – did I mention John McCain had peaceful protestors who visited his office arrested in December, and Flake did the same thing in 2016?

    I’ll never do that to people who disagree with me when I win.

    If your one issue is Trump, we may not get along – but if you want to discuss any/every other policy issue, I will address all of them and I won’t run away. We’ll have a civil discussion. That goes for you too Wonkette – next time contact me for comment!

    Regards,

    Future Senator Craig R. Brittain, a Senator for ALL AMERICANS.

            I’ll do you one better: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Science_and_inventions_of_Leonardo_da_Vinci

            Emphasis mine.

            As an engineer, Leonardo conceived ideas vastly ahead of his own time, conceptually inventing an improved version of the helicopter

            The desire to fly is expressed in the many studies and drawings.
            One design that he produced shows a flying machine to be lifted by a man-powered rotor.[23] It would not have worked since the body of the craft itself would have rotated in the opposite direction to the rotor.

            and ironically in age with plenty of private and religious patronage, no one invested in his idea, perhaps cause:

            “Many of his designs, such as the movable dikes to protect Venice from invasion, proved too costly or impractical.”

            It’s weird that human knowledge and technology advanced constantly under the strong government of Rome, yet after it fell and was replaced by scattered weak governments in the Middle Ages a lot of it was lost and European science and technology stagnated until the Renaissance; luckily human knowledge was preserved and advanced under the strong government of the Ottoman Empire which Europeans were able to relearn must of the old Roman science from.

          • It’s a lot easier to believe that the great ideas came from government – because that justifies the existence of government – and a lot harder to accept that historically they came from a small few very talented individuals, like Leonardo da Vinci, Gottfried Liebniz, Nikolai Tesla and Dennis Ritchie

          • Dept. of Space Tacos

            great ideas coming from government is not what ANYONE is saying…the funding for the great ideas on the other hand.

            Also, see: vaccines.

            This is a really terrible line of argument, we could probably go all day.

          • The funding for the great ideas comes from the taxpayers, who funded the same great ideas before Income Tax was enacted in 1913

            so that’s why clean, renewable and cheap solar and wind farms blanket the land? The reason the tax payers are no longer propping up the oil industry with billions in tax write offs and incentives?

            We’re not trying to artificially prop up the coal industry, which TRUE free market and innovation would have crushed to powder by now?

            Okie dokie smokie.

          • Yes and no. The problem is that we’ve actually regulated clean energy out – progressives who claimed to be in favor of clean energy, like President Barack Obama, cut funding for it and increased regulations on clean/green energy 8 years in a row. If you’re interested in renewables – watch the fake progressives, they’re the biggest culprits. I drive a low emission vehicle, use green energy myself regularly and support conservation efforts.

It’s that sort of relationship – where apologies are regularly made for government – “without it we wouldn’t have roads or technology, so we can justify robbing and beating the populace and endless wars and prisons, and anyone who dares point this out is a lunatic” – if you’re against husbands who beat their wives, you should also be against governments that beat and rob their own citizens

            “Binary” is “the internet”? Binary only matters because current computers are based on the transistor which is bi-state. There’s nothing written in stone that says computers must only be bi-state, perhaps a future technology will involve something that can take more than two states. Binary is just a numbering system, we use base 10, it’s base 2, we could use base 7 if we found something meaningful that took 7 different states.

            Nope; Libertarianism is a semi-religious cult built around an incoherent pseudo-philosophy which actual reality have proven time and time again does not work at all, which is opposed by everyone with even an ounce of sense and capable of logical thought. Fuck, they believe in returning us to the laissez faire capitalism that always results in economic disaster, and caused the Great Depression, and oppose the government regulation that ended the Depression and prevented another serious meltdown until most of those regulations were dismantled during the disastrous Presidencies of Ronald Reagan and George W. Bush.

            It’s also a horrid authoritarian ideology which wants to give wealthy corporations the power to control the lives of everyone else, and is followed by idiots who believe they’re super-smart without any evidence and think they end up in charge based on their imagined superiority. There’s also a large overlap with that brand of racist and misogynists who use the pseudo-science of eugenics to justify their bigotry instead of religion. There’s a reason why no actual intellectuals take Libertarianism seriously, and why anyone who admits to being a Libertarian is telling you their opinions are worthless.

          • According to UCLA, FDR caused and extended the Great Depression by 7 years by enacting Military Keynesianism, the false belief that war is a profitable practice.

            No economics board has ever alleged that libertarianism caused the Great Depression (because that’s economically impossible given the financial climate of the 20’s and 30’s.)

            The sole libertarian President of the times – Calvin Coolidge – has stellar ratings amongst economists across the spectrum and is widely regarded as one of the best financial Presidents. The interventionist/protectionist Woodrow Wilson, on the other hand, who created the Federal Reserve, does not.

          • JMP

            Nope! Calvin Coolidge was a disastrous President who caused the Great Depression with his horrible libertarian economic policies, and any serious economist – in other words those who don’t follow the discredited idiocy of Hayek – will tell you so. The unregulated free market caused the Great Depression, just as deregulation allowed history to repeat itself when the free market caused the Bush Recession. Free markets are the problem, they don’t work without regulation.

            As a U of C grad, I have to point out that it only the economics department that’s a hideous spawning pool for economically illiterate right wing morons, the rest of the college is great, or at least was back in the 90s before they changed their admittance policies that prioritized offbeat intellectuals for ones that mimicked the Ivy League’s for a body of the spoiled children of privilege. Remember, their law school faculty provided us with America’s best President since LBJ.

          • Bill Diaz

            The best President since LBJ didnt go to law school (Carter) and Obama never went there, but was ‘Adjunct Faculty’ (the academic equivalent of migrant labor).

            While I am an Obama supporter, it is my belief that Carter was the most moral and least hypocritical President we have had for 100 years. Can you imagine how much further we would be towards things like renewable energy, marijuana legalization and criminal justice reform if Carter had 8 years and we never suffered under Reagan?

            I like Obama, but often dream of what might have been if Carter wouldnt have been subject to the brutal character assassination by right wing lunatics of the time?

            Have a great day!

            I love Carter. You are right, Obama went to Harvard Law School.

            There is at least one right-wing nut job in U of C’s History Department, who teaches a course on Tolkien as Medieval history, writes articles called “Three Cheers for White Men!” and is obsessed with Milo Yiannopoulos, and not in an entirely platonic way.

          • Left Coast Tom

            “Black Tuesday” was October 29, 1929. Your hero, Calvin Coolidge, left office March 4, 1929 (inaugurations were in March until 1937). Your assertion is that the most bestest of “financial Presidents” built such a weak economic system that it was entirely undone in 7.5 months.

          • Coolidge couldn’t undo the protectionist failings of Woodrow Wilson, but he did limit the damage he caused.
            The sign of a great leader is not what they do in good times – it’s what they do in bad times – Coolidge did a great job in an awful time. That’s why he was a great President.

          • Left Coast Tom

            Ha! Coolidge presided over an economic boom! He left his successor, Herbert Hoover, with the mess.

            And it was FDR who signed the Reciprocal Tariff Act in 1934, under which he negotiated bilateral trade liberalization agreements.

          • Wilson had already doomed the US with the creation of the Federal Reserve – we didn’t find out just how bad the Fed was until the FDR years.

          • Left Coast Tom

            You said Wilson doomed us with protectionism which Coolidge, somehow, couldn’t undo even though FDR, somehow, could. Now you’re shifting the goal post.

            Now you’re going on about the Federal Reserve – somehow we never “found out” “just how bad the Fed was” until 3.5 years after Black Tuesday?

          • JMP

            Coolidge did an awful job in good times, and caused the Great Depression. The disastrous Harding-Coolidge-Hoover trifecta were the worst President America had between James Buchanan and W. Bush, though of course the fascist monster Trump has managed to be even worse than any of them.

          • Red Richmond

            What in the actual living fuck are you babbling about? He got out before the crash, hardly “awful” times. Left everyone else a big flaming shitheap to clean up after him.

            Also your thesis is government is bad but you cite a 2004 paper from 2 economists from a government funded school. Couldn’t you find anything from a libertarian school to quote instead?

            It’s just warmed over Republicanism for pot smokers.

          • Furthermore, libertarianism is working right now in Switzerland. They have full employment, the highest GDP per capita in the world, complete access to health care and extremely limited taxation checked by requiring government to hold a zero balance (turn a profit). They have the least financial regulations of any first world country, yet they’re light years ahead of the USA.

          • phoenix00

            They also have heavy fines for minor violations like speeding and jaywalking. Also motor racing is outlawed. Not Libertarian.

            Taxes in Switzerland take up 27.8% of GDP, compared to 26.0% in the US. OCED Linky. You don’t get to arbitrarily exclude Swiss Canton or US State taxation from your calculation.

          • It’s a very coherent philosophy that always ends in the person being shown clear facts and studies covering their eyes and ears and looking like an infant to those witnessing the discussion from an intellectual perspective. Most of the detractors of libertarianism are ironically owned by corporate interests – which just makes it more funny that the benefactors of capitalism would attempt to burn the ladders they climbed up so they don’t look fragile by comparison to a new and rising class of small business owners. That’s the only reason corporate-types oppose libertarianism – because they don’t want to compete, it exposes them as fragile, it exposes people like Gates, Jobs, Buffett and Zuckerberg as being nothing special – anyone could do what they did given the opportunity.

          • JMP

            Yes, Libertarians always cover their eyes and ears whenever reasonable people show clear facts and studies that prove how wrong their garbage ideology is, just like all religious fundamentalists do.

          • jesterpunk
          • Pretty much the only viable plank of libertarianism is the legalization of weed. Other than that, it’s hacky economics and wishful thinking for the very, very greedy.

      The average taxpayer in Switzerland pays 0.74%-1% annually in Federal tax

      So you would advocate that the US cut back its defense spending to 0.7% of GDP like Switzerland? Math scales, right?

      • Yes. Close down all the foreign bases and it’ll actually be more like 0.3%

        • phoenix00

          False.

          https://www.factcheck.org/2016/04/u-s-foreign-military-support/

          Total U.S. 2014 spending was about $3.8 trillion, making foreign aid 0.9 percent of federal spending, and foreign military aid plus the military training aid 0.16 percent.

          Trump is entitled to his opinion that the U.S. “can’t afford” military spending in Saudi Arabia, Japan, Germany and South Korea. But the facts are that military spending in these countries is a relatively small percentage of total U.S. military spending and provides strategic benefits that cannot be quantified.

      • goldie

        He’s wrong. The average Federal tax in Switzerland is about 11%. In the most expensive Cantons that brings total tax burden to an average of 23%. Also, Switzerland has an individual mandate for health insurance. All persons in the country for more than 90 days are automatically enrolled in a basic plan – although they can opt for additional coverage or get subsidies if they can’t afford the basic package – about $250 per month per person. They also have price controls on health care services. If he’s for the Swiss model then he’s for Obamacare.

    • SayItWithWookies

      The cost of building the border wall is $8 billion, a drop in the bucket when the Debt Brake cuts the current $4.1T annual budget to about $1.4T over 5 years, while also cutting the costs of goods and services. That $2.7T margin is where the money is coming from.

      A debt brake does not mean that you have more money to spend. In fact, that’s the exact opposite of what a debt brake does. BRB – aspirin.

      • Yes, it does. By reducing the Federal Budget and percentage of debt, you increase the purchasing power/parity of citizens by the minimum of the resolved margin, which is why Switzerland’s GDP per capita grew from about 48k to the current 75k in a span of 12 years after implementing the Debt Brake

      • Zippy W Pinhead

        Besides, 8 billion would barely cover one sector, not the whole wall. You’ll spend at least that much in annual maintenance, something this nitwit forgot to take into account. Anyone who actually lived here for any time and isn’t some goofy carpetbagger knows the 8-12 billion numbers are a pipedream

      okay, now I’m hooked:

      “He’s talking about a private adoption market, not a market for prostitution.”
      Pretty sure private individuals can adopt whom they choose.

      “It’s an argument for the government not watching over the shoulder of parents and punishing only in the case of direct harm, rather than the current system that attempts to preemptively decide the fitness of parents.”
      Untrue – CPS comes in when your prior actions suggest you’ve created an unsafe or neglectful home. Those prior actions are called evidence.

      • Jezzam

        He’s just salty ’cause the tinder-chicks deem him unfuckable, preemptively determining his fitness to anything

        • Carla Vandermeer

          Guys like this should come with a warning label.

      • CPS is a tyrannical entity that regularly places vulnerable children who could otherwise be in perfectly safe homes into group homes that are catastrophic and dangerous, also one of their conditions for supposed ‘unsafe’ or ‘neglectful’ homes is being single or LGBT, also CPS regularly lists safe minority homes as unsafe and has a legacy of bigotry as well

        • phoenix00

          If they were in safe homes then those kids aren’t exactly vulnerable then…..

        • Dept. of Space Tacos

          and your years of experience as a social worker or cop have confirmed this?

      You ran a revenge porn site! You tried to make money off of people’s personal pain, FFS.

      The fact you try and gloss over that with any other subject already makes you unfit for any office. As a fan of puss grab, you probably don’t get that at all do you?

          You find a lot of cowardice on the right.

    • JMP

      Oh, here’s a shocker: before trolling here, this guy’s most frequent community has been the white supremacist hate site Breitbart, and he’s been defending Donald fucking Trump, so he’s anti-American.

      • Untrue, I comment on many communities that don’t use Disqus – Breitbart is simply the one that uses Disqus.

        • phoenix00

          It deals in alternate facts!

        • JMP

          “Untrue” doesn’t mean what you seem to think it means; that’s the top site on your Disqus profile. I”m pointing out that you like to hang out at a white supremacist hate site, and defend the most racist man in the world, Donald Trump.

          • Just because I comment there doesn’t mean I endorse it. Quite the opposite, if you read most of my comments they’re critical of the things posted on Breitbart. I comment on all news-related websites when I see something that interests me. I comment on CNN, Time, NYT, HuffPo, BuzzFeed, every news website. Comments aren’t endorsements.

          • JMP

            And yet there are lots of endorsement of Donald Trump, an anti-American fascist and white supremacist who is right in line with the thinking at the hate site Breitbart. You ain’t fooling anybody.

          • sarafina

            JMP, you know The Dotard may not be “the most racist man in the world” although he is in the top 5.

      I really dont understand willfully ignorant sociopaths such as yourself, but that is mostly due to the fact that you and yours are PAINFULLY stupid and the only benefit of your existence to the majority of this country is to gawp at you.

      Have a great day!

      Gee, I wonder why Robyn might not want to communicate with someone who runs a revenge porn site FFS?

      Oh, and she’s for the Wall and basically a Republican, but she’s bisexual and so the intolerant old boys have chased her out of the GOP – she votes with Trump over half of the time, basically a Republican running as a Democrat.

      Considering that her stand on civil and women’s rights is progressive, this comment is laughable.

      if you want to discuss any/every other policy issue, I will address all of them and I won’t run away

      OK: why do you think it is acceptable to publish nude photos without consent? Why is it OK to dox the women in the photos?

      PS:

      That goes for you too Wonkette – next time contact me for comment!

      You’re in no position to tell Wonkette what to do FFS.

      • shivaskeeper

        He already dismisses the revenge porn thing as fake news, You didn;t get the memo that claiming a thing is “Fake News” means no one can ask you about a thing anymore.

        • Carole

          An FTC Order is fake news now?

          • shivaskeeper

            Apparently so. It is also fake news because Google told him to fuck off and woundn’t scrub the net of any reference to the bad shit he did.

            That’s how this works now. All you have to do is say “Fake News” and no one is allowed to talk about whatever you are calling fake news anymore.
