Most Americans are unaware that the African-American “right” to vote has to be ratified by Congress every 25 years. In an article published by the New York Times on July 21st 2006, we learn that the Senate Approved of a 25 Year Extension of the Voting Rights Act, which will end in the year 2035. Why the constant renewal? Why not turn the privilege of voting into a right for African-Americans? This major telltale sign of post-modern colonialism makes the struggle of America’s favorite minority sound like a parody of a woodchuck song. “How much power does the black vote have, if the black vote can’t get the right to vote made into a law?”
Where is the so-called Negro clergy in all of this? It’s 2016 and we’ve heard presidential candidates talk about everything from the legalization of marijuana to building a wall across the Mexican border, but none of them have shown concern for securing the voting rights of the African-American. Sure, they’ll visit black churches and socialize with Mississippi hunks of the sacred clothe, who talk with the “green-mile movie accent” then make a report to the Senate about the sweetness of the collard greens when the campaign trail is ripe. However, these handshakes behind close doors have nothing to do with the people, save the understanding of the pastor’s role in the state of colonialism. It’s as simple as saying “my kingdom is no part of this world, but we do believe in favors.” And so these politicians will keep visiting black churches, which are voluntarily segregated, near Labor Day weekend in hopes of convincing the so-called Negro that the powers of Christ lay in the hands of the President of the United States.
Yet in still, you will never see a presidential candidate announcing a visit to Chinatown. You know why? It’s because the Chinese people have their own community. When you have your own community you don’t need to vote. You don’t even have to speak English in America! The political parody of voting is not about an election. On a presidential level, the selection of the president and vice president respectfully, is based on electoral votes. This process is clearly described in a Wikipedia article entitled Electoral College:
“The United States Electoral College is the institution that elects the President and Vice President of the United States every four years. Citizens of the United States do not directly elect the president or the vice president; instead they elect representatives called “electors”, who usually pledge to vote for particular presidential and vice presidential candidates.”
So what is the purpose of gathering the population’s vote if it is not the ultimate deciding factor in the selection of the president and vice-president? It’s all based on an ancient Roman pagan festival that is now used to gather the appropriate amount of life-force energy to anoint the new commander-in-chief.
Ludi Plebeli was a Roman religious festival, which was held, coincidentally, on November 4th-17th, approximately the same time of year that as the United States’ Election Day. When we compare Ludi Plebeii with Election Day, the purpose of voting is easily understood.
Ludi Plebeii (The Plebian Games) was a religious festival, but focused on holding games, theatrical performances, and other forms of entertainment to satisfy the common people of Rome. These pagan festivals that were celebrated in sacred games in a manner similar to how Americans have parades for certain ethnic groups that have established a tradition for themselves within the United States. The Roman games known as Ludi, however, were celebrations held in the honor of a particular deity associated with group of people. In a Wikipedia article, under the topic Ludi, we read:
“Ludi (Latin plural) were public games held for the benefit and entertainment of the Roman people (populus Romanus). Ludi were held in conjunction with, or sometimes as the major feature of, Roman religious festivals, and were also presented as part of the cult of state……Originally, all ludi seem to have been votive offerings (ludi votivi), staged as the fulfillment of a vow to a deity whose favor had been sought and evidenced. In 366 BC, the Ludi Romani became the first games to be placed on the religious calendar as an annual event sponsored by the state as a whole. Games in the circus were preceded by a parade (pompa circensis) featuring the competitors, mounted youths of the Roman nobility, armed dancers, musicians, a satyr chorus, and images of the gods.”
In the case of Ludi Plebeii, of which Election Day was patterned after, it was held in honor of the Plebs. In ancient Rome, the plebs, or plebeians, were defined as any tribe without advisors to the King, or common-folk, people without a voice. Reflecting on America’s economic situation today, wherein one percent of the population is worth more than the remaining ninety-nine percent combined, and the disparity of the African-American voting privilege, the “plebs,” according to Livius.org, met with similar conditions in ancient Rome:
“The word plebs is said to be derived from plere, ‘to fill up’. Plebeians were, therefore, people who were considered to be an addition to the ‘real’ Roman population. It is likely that this unkind expression was first coined by the Roman aristocracy of the early republic, the patricians, who monopolized the magistracies and wanted to keep all others out of office. This caused tensions with two other groups:
- the poor, who had to appeal to a patrician judge against arbitrary decisions by patrician magistrates (e.g., consuls),
- and the rich non-patricians (often nouveaux riches), who could afford armor, were supposed to fight in battle and to pay taxes, but were not allowed a vote in the decision about war and peace or to oversee the spending of their money.
In c.490 BCE (or, to use the Varronian chronology, which is too often confused with our era, 494),these two groups united, organized themselves in a people’s assembly (consilium plebis), and demanded political rights. The unified opposition was known as plebs and seems to have used the nickname as honorific title.
Among the first representatives of the plebs were the officials known as aediles, who were responsible for the temple of the goddess Ceres, the cult of Liber and Libera, and the Plebeian games (ludi plebeii).”
Here we can see that the plebs were not allowed to vote when it came to decisions about war and peace despite their having to pay taxes and participate in war. The Romans were smart in giving the plebs a holiday, which worked to lessen the threat of revolt against their government. Election Day serves the same purpose. You can stop a revolution by giving people the right to vote. This will give them the idea that they are part of a political process that they really have nothing to do with.
Most scholars agree that the Plebeian Games were adapted from he Ludi Romani (“Roman Games”), This holiday, Ludi Romani, was based in part on honoring the deified Julius Caesar. Most people are unaware that Christianity is a political force, as much as it is a religion. Julius Caesar was the Christ in as much as the first President of the United States, George Washington, was said to be born in Virginia, which is next to Maryland, son of the Virgin Mary. Francesco Carotta, in the classic work, entitled, Jesus was Caesar: On Julian Origin of Christianity, states:
“There is similarity in structure as well as in place names. People in the stories of Caesar and of Jesus are structurally the same people, even by name and location.”
The political system of Christianity is the democracy you see before your eyes. In the reality of the symbolism that Christ’s life on earth was sacrificed for rulership in heaven, so too was the deified Julius Caesar noted for his instrumental role in the demise of the Roman Republic and the rise of the Roman Empire. From the political perspective, America is thought to be “God’s kingdom on Earth,” making it a Christian nation in the political sense. Each Election Day millions of Americans celebrate and worship the inauguration of the Roman Christ, Julius Caesar, symbolized by the oath and office of President of the United States.
