WHAT IS THE NON-AGGRESSION PRINCIPLE?

WHY DO GOVERNMENTS EXIST?

WHAT IS THE VOTE FOR NOBODY CAMPAIGN?

The Non-Aggression Principle is the standard by which most voluntaryists live their lives. It believes that all forms of human interaction should be voluntary, and that the initiation of violence is unjustified, regardless of who is initiating it. We believe that governments violate this principle, through the use of arrests and taxation. We state that governments are about threatening YOU with violence, either explicitly or implicitly, as a method of scaring you into consent. We state that no person should be able to claim ownership of you. For this reason, we are opposed to concepts of government. Not to say that we are against rules, because all societies need to establish social norms. We happen to believe that societies can be self-regulating and do not need the power of a centralized government to do the managing.

Governments operate on a theory known as the Social Contract. This is was originally formulated by the philosopher Thomas Hobbes (1588-1679). Social Contract theory states that individuals have consented, either explicitly or tacitly, to surrender some of their freedoms and submit to the authority of the ruler or magistrate (or to the decision of a majority), in exchange for protection of their rights. Voluntaryists disagree with this theory, because the contract was never explicitly agreed between both parties. It is one of the parties telling the other party the way things are going to be. We consider that immoral, and for that reason, we are opposed to governments. They are unethical, unjust, unfair, and dangerous institutions that treat their “citizens” as their slaves. If you disagree, look at how taxation policy is enforced by gunpoint. Look at how money is being spent without the input or consent of those who had their money stolen from them through taxes. Regardless of the supposed morality of the programs that are paid with stolen money, they are still paid with stolen money. Social contract? We didn’t sign ANYTHING!

The Vote For Nobody campaign is an election boycott group. Nobody is fit to rule over our lives, and nobody should be elected for ANY office. “We, the Anti-Electorate, do not believe there is a need for “strong leadership” in government. We are not drawn to “intellectual” authorities and political “heroes.” We are not impressed with titles, ranks, and pecking orders – politicians, celebrities, and gurus. We do not struggle for control of organizations, social circles, and government. We do not lobby the State for favors or permission to control those with whom we disagree. Rather, we advocate freedom. By its very nature, the State does not. Exercise your right to say “No” to the warfarewelfare system. Refuse to vote. Then tell your friends why.” — Wally Conger, The AntiElectorate Manifesto We’re building an organized political campaign to promote the idea of abolishing politics. Don’t JUST vote for Nobody. Get out there and ACTIVELY CAMPAIGN for Nobody.

Historical figures that have advocated the NonAggression Principle include Jesus Christ, Thomas Jefferson, and Ayn Rand.

We cannot destroy evil. We can only reveal evils that pretend to be good.

WHY NOT JUST VOTE FOR THE LESSER OF TWO EVILS? Voting for the lesser of two evils is still voting for evil. How has that been working out for us in the last 30 years? With each election, the power and scope of government has grown. The government now has the ability to do the following: -Monitor everybody’s phone calls without warrant. The NY Times has reported that the NSA (National Security Agency) is conducting wiretaps of everyday Americans that are not suspected of any terrorist links. -Monitor everybody’s e-mails without warrant -Monitor your social networking feeds without warrant -Take over the use of anybody’s iPhone camera and microphone through a program called “Geo Fence.” -Black out radio broadcasts. This has been done on at least one occasion during Mancow’s radio show. -Detain ANY American for ANY reason and hold them FOREVER without any criminal charges. This is a process that is known as “disappearing”. This was authorized by the National Defense Authorization Act of 2011 (NDAA). This has already been used in the case of Brandon Raub.
