THE PLAY'S THE THING: Presidential Elections by Steve Savage "King of the Beasts"


Nothing is as it seems. All political candidates exist in the realm of virtual reality. They are mindless, walking, talking personifications of some nebulous collective that writes their speeches, applies their makeup, and directs their mannerisms that are to be seen by observers. Family members and carefully placed onlookers are coached into providing appropriate timed responses and facial expressions that are to be seen by the duped voting public audience, if they're really voting at all. Remember the Russian elections of the 1950s?

What we're all looking at is a play, titled False Dialectic, adapted from the original Fleece the Sheep where all the lines are scripted; all the actors pre-selected by a casting director, with trailers leaked to the media.

The financial backers of the show are mostly unknown to the audience and they choose to remain that way. (I find it interesting that financial backers are known in the entertainment industry as "Angels.") Their main objective is to divide the audience by making them think they are choosing a side, while in actuality, all the actors in the play belong to the same actors guild, the Council on Foreign Relations.

Even the polls are rigged to appear as though elections could go one way or the other. It's always a "Close Race," roughly 45% to 45% with 10% Undecided. The 10% is known as the vigorish, the cut that guarantees that the House always wins.

There are great leaders among us; however, we will never get to know who they are.

There will be no "Marc Antony" (leader) to descend from the pulpit to read Caesar's Will (America's Promise) to us as we stand around Caesar’s (America's) corpse.

As we look at the body that was once the America our forefathers established for us, where is the Antony to point out the wounds that "Brutus" and "Cassius" (Corporate Business and Traitors) inflicted? Where is the Antony to remind us how "Caesar" (America) loved even Brutus, and yet Brutus stabbed him viciously?

"For Brutus, as you know, was Caesar's angel.
Judge, O you gods, how dearly Caesar lov'd him!
This was the most unkindest cut of all;"
