Oh no, Joel Rosenberg is a literary genius who so far has convinced three
anti-semites to fear Jews with no more of a weapon than his incisive wit.
If you question him, then that means you are an anti-semite, dog-fucker.

!         Re: Ernst Zundel, Samisdat, "Friends of Freedom" and
!         ----------------------------------------------------
!         The Canadian Free Speech League
!         -------------------------------
! 
! It has become increasingly clear in the past few years that
! Ernst Zundel's Samisdat and your own Canadian Free Speech
! League are merely fronts for an antisemitic, pro-Nazi agenda.
! I have little doubt, in retrospect, that this has always been
! the case.
! 
! In 1985, on your urging, I testified as an expert witness at
! the trial of Ernst Zundel. At the time, Ernst Zundel was
! presented as a publisher who was being censured and censored
! for merely publishing a Canadian edition of someone else's
! book, a book that had been successfully published in England
! and America already.
! 
! As an author, professor and publisher, and as founding
! president of the Alberta Publishers Association, I was very
! concerned about censorship of this kind. As a former
! journalist and Jehovah's Witness, I was particularly concerned
! about the section of the Criminal Code under which Zundel had
! been charged: "Spreading false news", since "news" by
! definition is current, and the law had been used,
! inappropriately, as a second line of attack in the infamous
! Jehovah's Witness sedition cases of the 1940's and 50's (see
! R. v. Carrier (1951), 104 C.C.C. 75).
! 
! After I testified, Ernst Zundel taped me talking about
! "culture myth" and censorship. At the time of the taping, I
! had no idea that Mr. Zundel would use these tapes in an
! attempt to lend credibility to his anti-Semitic, pro-Nazi
! agenda.
! 
! His promotion of the interview under the rubric and logo of
! Samisdat amounts to misrepresentation, and infringes on my
! copyright. I therefore demand that Ernst Zundel and his
! organization immediately cease and desist distributing the
! tapes and promoting them on the Internet and elsewhere.
! Failure to do so will lead to litigation in the Federal Court
! of Canada.
!

! /signature

! 
! 
!      If you really want White Power, then you should stop surrendering

! Proxy Vote In Congress, where it counts.  
!      By dropping a signed ballot in a Polling box, you are NOT "voting".

! 
!      Is that what you really intend to do???
! 
!      If not, and you really want White Power, then White people must

!      This allotment of Citizen's Proxy Votes among sovereign citizens

! remain professionals who could cast their block of votes any way they so
! desired.  The only difference would be that they COULD accurately
! represent their sovereign electors whenever they so desired.  
!      Best of all, this simple reform could be promptly instituted next
! week after one voice vote.  This could occur not only in the national
! Congress but simultaneously in each and every state and local
! legislature.  And not only in America, but in Canada, Europe, Australia,
! New Zealand, South Africa, Israel, and every other nation were
! Proportional Representation is being promoted by the Green Party and its
! sympathizers.  
! 
!      This change in the internal legislative voting procedures should be
! welcomed by everyone:  by voters and congressmen; by ruling class
! progressives who want the power, benefits, and prestige of leading
! mature Citizens into an advanced modern age; and of course, by the Green
! Party and other supporters of Proportional Representation who seek voter
! enfranchisement worldwide.
! 
!                                   Voter Support
! 
!      Voters should support Voter Proxy Votes in Congress for obvious
! reasons: they would suddenly be enfranchised to vote on all those issues
! which so intimately affect their lives, fortunes, honor, morals, and the
! future of their families and humanity worldwide.   They should all be
! quite ready to trade in that silly little throwaway vote at a Popularity
! Polls for one good, solid, lifelong, powerful, daily Proxy Vote in their
! nation's legislatures.  
!      With a Proxy Vote available to them to decide the acceptance or
! rejection of major issues, voters would feel more socially responsible
! and inclined to study basic issues more thoroughly.  However, if they
! did not want to do so, they can remain politically inert and leave all
! decisions to whatever legislator was assigned to cast their proxy votes
! for them.  They could complete a one-time general questionnaire on their
! political interests, then sit back and relax and enjoy television with
! their families, confident that their legislators were casting their
! proxy votes the way they wanted.  
!      Of course, on those special issues which caught their attention,
! they could express a definite opinion.  Like the time when Amerca's
! military were dropping bombs on Southeast Asia for thirty years without
! being at war with anybody.  Or today when their Congressmen vote to
! award Fed bankers a scandalously monstrous 6% annual royalty simply for
! the use of their logo on every circulating dollar.  Or tomorrow when
! some special-interest group wants them to ....  You get the point.
! 
!                                    Legislator Support
! 
!      Congressmen also should favor Citizen Proxy Votes In Congress for
! several good reasons.  
!      (1)  ACCURATE REPRESENTATION.  For the first time, conscientious
! legislators would be able to represent accurately all of their
! constituents on All issues according to their general instructions.
!      Under the current archaic voting system, with only one indivisible
! vote to cast, accurate representation of many thousands of different
! sovereign voters is, quite literally, a mathematical impossibility.
!      (2)  VOTER LOYALTY.  Legislators could maintain elector support
! until the next election when they could expect to be reelected with
! minimal campaigning.  Through good service, legislators could assure
! themselves of lifelong careers as Professional Representatives.  Those
! with exceptional skills could even establish an enduring political
! dynasty through trained successors. This assurance should be especially
! appealing to those incumbent legislators who are doubtful of their
! chances of re-election.
!      Under the traditional one-legislator / one-vote voting system,
! after a few critical votes, legislators can, quite innocently, alienate
! ALL of their electors, and in the next election find themselves voted
! out of office - often to be replaced by inferiors.
!      (3)  COMPATIBLE CONSTITUENTS.  Legislators can agree to reassign
! constituents among themselves so that all electors can be represented by
! legislators with similar political philosophies regardless of where they
! maintained a residence.  This would render their jobs much more
! pleasant, productive, effective, and efficient.  This internal
! realignment of voters with compatible legislators would please both
! voters and legislators.
!      Under the current inflexible system of Indiscriminate Bulk District
! Representation, legislators must associate with political opponents
! while pretending unconvincingly to represent them.
!      (4)  INCREASED CIVILIAN POWER.  In addition to whatever Political
! Power they currently derive from the soldiers and tax collectors of the
! Executive Branch, Congressmen would wield an even greater Civilian Power
! derived from their millions of newly organized electors.  They could use
! this Civilian Power to achieve all those desirable social, economic, and
! civic objectives which they can envision but which are far beyond their
! current limited power to realize.  Their situation would overnight
! change from one of Perpetual Frustrated Impotence to one of Powerful
! Affluence.
!      They could then exercise this civilian power to counter the
! willfulness of the Executive Branch and hold them accountable for all
! their actions.  Sovereign Electors would stand squarely behind their
! compatible legislators to aid them in their common goals, effectively
! countering the government's Power Of The Sword with their newly acquired
! absolute Power Of The Purse.  Through this voter support, the
! Legislative Branch could establish their independence from the Executive
! Branch and cease acting as a rubber-stamp for the military.
!      Under the chaotic circumstances caused by traditional legislative
! voting practices, no worthwhile civic, economic, or political objectives
! can be achieved.  The glaring social stagnation of the last 2200 years
! is due in part to this ancient political custom which lumps incompatible
! defranchised voters under incompatible legislators with only one vote to
! represent them all.  
!      (5) CIVILIZATION and CITIZENS.   Congressmen would enjoy leading
! their country into an advanced modern era of Civilization while
! contributing to the maturation of ordinary voters into Sovereign
! Citizens.  Dealing with maturely organized Sovereign Citizens is much
! more pleasant than dealing with disorganized mobs of apathetic
! defranchised Subjects who must continually be herded about by the troops
! of the Executive branch. 
! 
!      The above presents a good case for supporting Voter Proxy Votes In
! Congress rather than Proportional Representation in the Surrender Of
! Sovereignty Popularity Polls.  
!      I can see little substantial opposition.  Surely 50,000,000
! American voters would have little difficulty persuading 300 Congressmen
! and a few thousand state legislators to change an old frontier voting
! custom, especially when legislators should favor the change themselves.
! A few voter letters and petitions may be all that they need to persuade
! them to institute the change in their next legislative session.
!      Of course, some people like the thought that the current
! legislative practice is a vestige of medieval English Nobility voting
! practices, and that this has its roots in Ancient Roman Senatorial
! voting practices.  The only objection I expect then is that this
! proposal is non-traditional.
!      I will leave to readers to decide whether this objection is worthy
! of consideration by a modern people.

!                                    Legislator Support
! 
!      Congressmen also should favor Citizen Proxy Votes In Congress for
! several good reasons.  
!      (1)  ACCURATE REPRESENTATION.  For the first time, conscientious
! legislators would be able to represent accurately all of their
! constituents on All issues according to their general instructions.
!      Under the current archaic voting system, with only one indivisible
! vote to cast, accurate representation of many thousands of different
! sovereign voters is, quite literally, a mathematical impossibility.
!      (2)  VOTER LOYALTY.  Legislators could maintain elector support
! until the next election when they could expect to be reelected with
! minimal campaigning.  Through good service, legislators could assure
! themselves of lifelong careers as Professional Representatives.  Those
! with exceptional skills could even establish an enduring political
! dynasty through trained successors. This assurance should be especially
! appealing to those incumbent legislators who are doubtful of their
! chances of re-election.
!      Under the traditional one-legislator / one-vote voting system,
! after a few critical votes, legislators can, quite innocently, alienate
! ALL of their electors, and in the next election find themselves voted
! out of office - often to be replaced by inferiors.
!      (3)  COMPATIBLE CONSTITUENTS.  Legislators can agree to reassign
! constituents among themselves so that all electors can be represented by
! legislators with similar political philosophies regardless of where they
! maintained a residence.  This would render their jobs much more
! pleasant, productive, effective, and efficient.  This internal
! realignment of voters with compatible legislators would please both
! voters and legislators.
!      Under the current inflexible system of Indiscriminate Bulk District
! Representation, legislators must associate with political opponents
! while pretending unconvincingly to represent them.
!      (4)  INCREASED CIVILIAN POWER.  In addition to whatever Political
! Power they currently derive from the soldiers and tax collectors of the
! Executive Branch, Congressmen would wield an even greater Civilian Power
! derived from their millions of newly organized electors.  They could use
! this Civilian Power to achieve all those desirable social, economic, and
! civic objectives which they can envision but which are far beyond their
! current limited power to realize.  Their situation would overnight
! change from one of Perpetual Frustrated Impotence to one of Powerful
! Affluence.
!      They could then exercise this civilian power to counter the
! willfulness of the Executive Branch and hold them accountable for all
! their actions.  Sovereign Electors would stand squarely behind their
! compatible legislators to aid them in their common goals, effectively
! countering the government's Power Of The Sword with their newly acquired
! absolute Power Of The Purse.  Through this voter support, the
! Legislative Branch could establish their independence from the Executive
! Branch and cease acting as a rubber-stamp for the military.
!      Under the chaotic circumstances caused by traditional legislative
! voting practices, no worthwhile civic, economic, or political objectives
! can be achieved.  The glaring social stagnation of the last 2200 years
! is due in part to this ancient political custom which lumps incompatible
! defranchised voters under incompatible legislators with only one vote to
! represent them all.  
!      (5) CIVILIZATION and CITIZENS.   Congressmen would enjoy leading
! their country into an advanced modern era of Civilization while
! contributing to the maturation of ordinary voters into Sovereign
! Citizens.  Dealing with maturely organized Sovereign Citizens is much
! more pleasant than dealing with disorganized mobs of apathetic
! defranchised Subjects who must continually be herded about by the troops
! of the Executive branch. 
! 
!      The above presents a good case for supporting Voter Proxy Votes In
! Congress rather than Proportional Representation in the Surrender Of
! Sovereignty Popularity Polls.  
!      I can see little substantial opposition.  Surely 50,000,000
! American voters would have little difficulty persuading 300 Congressmen
! and a few thousand state legislators to change an old frontier voting
! custom, especially when legislators should favor the change themselves.
! A few voter letters and petitions may be all that they need to persuade
! them to institute the change in their next legislative session.
!      Of course, some people like the thought that the current
! legislative practice is a vestige of medieval English Nobility voting
! practices, and that this has its roots in Ancient Roman Senatorial
! voting practices.  The only objection I expect then is that this
! proposal is non-traditional.
!      I will leave to readers to decide whether this objection is worthy
! of consideration by a modern people.
