Who Should I Vote For?
I’m going to offer a guideline about how to vote, or not, that many of you are not going to like. And this is it: When deciding who should be President of the US, first ask the Natives: Who is best for the Natives? Who is best for *you*, if you are not Native, is a non-issue and coming from that place will only bring you misery on another’s land.
No matter how moral you will ever be in the US, you are a colonialist, an invader and interloper in the US; you always start your every day from that position. Nothing that you do is ever really blessed. No matter where you are in the US, you are standing on an unmarked grave. Your organic farm is planted on someone’s unmarked grave. Your recycling facility is situated on the grave of someone who loved that land more than you are even capable of loving it.
You are, every minute of your lives, living at the expense of another People. That is a very low moral starting point.
You, colonialist, invading, foreign “Americans”, have only two moral choices: The first, and best, is to go back to where you or your recent ancestors came from if that country is not a political shambles. The second alternative is to go humbly to the Natives and say: What can I do for *you*?
You feel that you don’t have a real or legitimate identity. Don’t you? You are right. In “America” you are ghosts and phantoms and shadows of your true selves.
The case, of course, is different for the Children of Slaves whose ancestors arrived in chains, not to feather their own nest at the expense of the Natives.
All of the big buildings in the background of your “moral” talking heads on TV and in universities are monuments to genocide, treachery and imperialism. They are in no position to take any moral high ground, as she pretends to do.
Either adopt Native morality and ways of life or go back to where you or your recent ancestors invaded from. You, in “America” are nothing but disembodies spirits who will find no rest there.
