I was recently watching an HBO presentation called “The Latin Explosion: A New America” and one part of the program delved into the political realm pointing out how desperate politicians are to get the “Latino vote” and how that gives latinos power and influence. Entertainers like Pitbull and other latino performers have ads encouraging their fellow Latino Americans to vote because that’s “power”.
Unfortunately, they, just as many other americans of any other ethnicity, have been fooled into believing that their vote counts, not realizing that what it counts for is not what they think it counts for. They are but pawns voting for their overlords just like all the other citizens of the Realm and they are simply being used by the political elite as a resource; another spigot of revenue pouring into the government coffers to feed to insatiable hunger of an ever growing and all powerful Leviathan that wants complete control over all its subjects within the Realm. (and outside the Realm as well)
So I would like only to say this to my fellow latino Americans; voting for others to rule over you will likely not turn out to be “power” for you but it will be for your overlords. But as long as you keep voting for the establishment candidate, whether Democrat or Republican (or other) and wave your Star Spangled Banner wildly overhead; cheer for the soldiers and above all be a good citizen by paying your taxes you should be just fine…. for a while anyway.
On the other hand, should you ever cross your overlords by standing up for your right to not be groped just because you want to travel by airliner; or your right to do with your own body what you want – drinking what you want, smoking what you want or even drinking RAW MILK if you want; or your right to raise your children and educate them how you think best; or your right to do as you wish with your own property; or your right to marry without getting permission from the government; or your right to keep what your earn and not have it stolen by the government under threat of violence; or your right to pass on your property to your posterity without being taxed out of it; or your right to not be conscripted or have your children conscripted to fight immoral wars for the government and kill people who have not attacked you; or your right to keep and bear arms to protect yourself and your family; or your right to keep your property and not have it stolen by thugs using “imminent domain” laws; or the right to not have your privacy invaded without justification or warrant; or the right to….. I could go on and on of course but anyway, things might not go so well for you then.
Is the right to vote really a power or is it the relinquishment of power? Something to ponder I think.
