Welcome to THEJNSREPORT’S Post Election 2012 Thoughts
Taking a look back at this year’s election now that the final result is in and has been heard around the world, to the delight of many, I find myself contemplating what it means now that we all know Obama will serve a second term. On one hand minorities everywhere feel great pride and joy Obama is still in office and quite a lot of the majority if what the vote tally shows on all the major news networks is true, because we know that whites in America are the majority even with the growing minority population. No black President would have been elected at all without white people voting for him. A friend of mine once told me be careful of any leader be he white, black or any other nationality but especially if he is a minority and chosen by white people.
I asked my friend why he would say that. His response was well think back to slave times. He continued to say “When the master of a plantation wasn’t around he still had appointed and selected from within his slave population those who would control and tell the other slaves what to do and in effect keep them under control. They were the master’s puppets. These appointed “leaders” and/or “overseers”of the slaves ” (most were white) were not for their own people they were given privileges that the other slaves did not receive in order to distinguish them and give them incentives to feel like they were better than the other slaves they were put in charge of.”
I thought about The Field Negro v The House Negro remarks I had heard in a Malcolm X speech. It made sense to me even when I looked at the situation that unfolded in Rwanda and Burundi in Africa which was later turned into a movie called Hotel Rwanda. Genocide was a result of this favoritism when the Belgian Colonizers pulled out of Rwanda. The Hutu’s began to plot the destruction of their fellow people the Tutsi’s because of the favoritism shown to the Tutsi. The old divide and conquer technique.
Now getting back to my point. I never for one moment believed Romney a Mormon would win this election. He in my opinion was merely a good choice to offer the public in opposition to Obama in order for the election to be believable. The debates were scripted and chosen to play this out further for the people. We have to remember that these people are actors. Highly skilled and polished and they act out their scripts right before our eyes, where we as the audience suspend common sense in most cases and just go with the story being acted out in front of us. This part of the show is essential. However, I do believe that there are many people who are so convinced that everything they see is authentic and couldn’t possibly be a script I’d certain I’d be almost immediately labeled a conspiracy nut just for pointing this out.
Whether I am considered that or not is not my concern. What is my concern however, is provoking critical thinking or at the very least a dialogue on the subject. After the first debate the media and many who watched it called the debate Obama’s weakest moment. He was called “passive” and “off his game”. President Obama had to tread the line carefully in my opinion so as not t0 come across as “The Angry Black Man” as many whites like to readily label any black man who is assertive and speaks with authority on a subject. This is especially true when it comes to the subject of racism. Meanwhile, Romney gets the free pass to interrupt the President over talk him and that is seen as aggressive and assertive and leadership by his supporters. In the second presidential debate the president clearly won and in the final debate President Obama thoroughly whooped Mitt Romney’s ass like a red-headed step child, so bad at one point Romney actually began parroting the answers the President was giving to direct questions and then immediately switched the subject from its chosen topic the international policy (his weak suite) to domestic issues where he and his team believed his strength and advantage were verses President Obama.
The President won the popular vote and the electoral college handily. Where in the electoral tally President Obama had received 303 votes to 203 for Romney. 270 Electoral votes are all that is needed to win and win he did. So now that the election show is over are we to believe that things will go better because of his reelection? Are we as citizens of U.S.A truly expecting change in Congress in terms of getting things done right for the people? Should we place our faith in one man? Does the president in all honesty and seriousness have any control over the country’s economy? Was the choice presented to us between two Candidates a true choice?
Congress is supposed to reflect the views and opinions of the masses who “choose” or “elect” them as their representatives in government to address and fight for the people. Clearly when we look at the election 2012 show that was just concluded the people seemingly have spoken loud and clear. So what should the people expect from President Obama’s second term? I pray it’s far better than the two previous Bush terms. However, if one believes that Obama is merely a figure head and mouth piece for the elite’s agenda to tell the citizens what is going to be done during his term in office what should we expect in the future?
