Voting Rights to Not Vote

For Americans political elections bring a barrage of campaign literature, commercials, speeches that never end. For Black Americans political elections always bring besides the campaign materials and endless speeches, we also get disinformation, propaganda and a flurry of candidates seeking our vote but never our respect and long time concerns.





Black voters also get the usual crisis pleas and hysteria over our right to vote. Our ancestors deserve better than some obligatory compliance during elections. Voting is worthless without concrete outcomes.  Political posturing and slogans do not change the arc of life nor alter the outcomes of living . I have of late now opine that not voting is a good option and deserves as much attention and focus as voting. I have matured and evolved to now give credibility and argument to the position of not voting has deep merits and real time value and currency. The Black electorate has for decades and decades been hostage to the Democrats  and invisible to the Republicans. Instead of having these two parties compete for our votes and clout we surrender  and retreat and make our electoral clout worthless and impotent.




One can take a principled position by opting put of a flawed and corrupt political system. One can argue by voting they are contributing to a corrupt and immoral political system. The jury is in the acts of omission ( not voting) equals the acts of commission ( voting)





My advice for this mid- term election is simple BE YOU vote as if your vote reflects your value and concerns not the agenda of political parties and political candidates who only care about you when they want your vote.




The Black community is long over due for a radical change in how we live to  how we vote or not vote. Reality is the truth and right here and right now Voting has not created the outcomes we want in fact staying the course and voting for the DEMS and the lesser of two evils is a script to nowhere..

I "Feel Ya".
I "Respect" your sentiments.

However - if you don't mind - please allow me to smooth out the rough edges of your argument.

VOTING (the ballot) is an AMERICAN CURRENCY. Your choice to burn a dollar bill rather than play it in the market - is your choice but it also has consequences.

It is not rational to tell someone "DON'T VOTE".

CLEARLY the problem with the "Colonized Americanized Negro" is that he has been tricked into "HAVING LITTLE LEFT" of his EXISTENTIALISM that has not been put into play inside of "American Capitalistic Political Opportunism".

As such, sir, it is more important to establish:

1) WHAT IS POSSIBLE TO ACHIEVE THROUGH THE VOTING PROCESS
** When you hear a CONFIDENCE MAN sell you on the notion that you can 'VOTE FOR YOUR SALVATION' to obtain something that you have already established is not possible through POLITICS - but you fail to REBUKE HIM - then YOU ARE AT FAULT

2) WHAT PORTION OF YOUR "PERSONHOOD" AND "COMMUNITY CONSCIOUS" MUST YOU NEVER ALLOW TO ESCAPE FROM YOUR "INNER CIRCLE", ALLOWING IT TO BE OUTSOURCED INTO THE "POLITICS OF HOPE AND OFFENDEDNESS" (Disarmament and Revenge )

*** When the "Colonized Americanized Negro" is tricked into FIGHTING FOR "A TEAM" - because he agrees that at 13% of the population he must join a coalition - it is critical that you not look at the TEAM VICTORIES that he is made happy about but the DISARMAMENT that he must accept as his COMMUNITY INTERESTS don't have to be developed - because he is now conditioned to see HIS VICTORY as the fight against the "White Right Wing Enemy"
*** A Chicken Comes Home To Roost" scenario is had when the White Progressive Political Ally is seen moving into the Black community of fellow team members who conspired during the election - BUT once the Negro wakes up and sees what is going on he calls it GENTRIFICATION - but fails to see that it is really: THE COST OF A SUSTAINED "UNDER-DEVELOPED STATE" - after 50 years of INVESTING THE NEGROES VALUABLES INTO POLITICS - the most effective scheme by which the disarm the Negro from fighting for his PERMANENT INTERESTS.


This model of the TRUTH depicted above is a more accurate representation of what is going on.

The Corruption Of The "Black Community Institutions" by folding them into POLITICS is the major theme in 2014.
