After all them, then came your boy so called George Washington in the recent constitution. There was 4 constitutions.
On the books it is recorded that John Hanson or John Hanson Bey was the first president. there is a picture of him in the public, whether that is him, or if it was taken when he is was in office, after is not the issue in this post. Just on the books, he was the first president.
Now for some refine info, thanks to lights from Aseer the Duke of Tiers and others. You may have heard of the Iroquois Tribe, nation or republic. Well The Iroquois was not one big tribe, it was a collective of parties or collective or individual groups, actually Moors. The Iroquois and the Continental Congress was one in the same. Yes, the Pyramid side of the government of the dollar bill. Which is also known as the National government. Later on lost power, went to sleep and the Federal government or eagle, better yet phoenix side took over which is now ran by the pale nation and pale tribes. However in early government history, the federal side was dark, mixed and mulatto men. If you research in the black law dictionary, the National Government is higher than the Federal government. Hence the reason why NATIONALITY is important. Understanding history and the screwed up so called slavery is important. So since the pyramid side, the Moors, the so called 5 civilized tribes, the Alis, Als, Beys, Deys, Dans, Els, Parshas, ect later on known as blackamoors, negros, blacks, colored, west indians, Africans, Afro American, African Americans, Mexicans, ect went to sleep, forgot who there were, took on wrong labels, titles, fake history, misplaced heritage and linage and became 3/5 of a man, prisoners or war called slaves and second class citizens.
So the republic became now incorporated in the 1930's (Goggle - USA vs US), democracy and democrats came into forefront play, birth certificates help staple the masses to the debt as collateral and the brainwashing continues.
So before you talk about voting, try and research history, the constitution, your state constitution, a black law dictionary and the other books on the book list on my pages. what color was the ties that Barack Obama and his running mate wearing the past few days and why? Those of you who were watching it on Tuesday, didn't you notice many women who was speaking wearing red dresses? What planet rules Tuesday? Hillary Clinton use to wear red dress on the most important Tuesdays when she was running also. You are participating in a ritual and don't even know it because of a man who can speak well, captivate your attention and look like you.
The constitution has over 4, 400 words, show me where in there it mentions a democrat or democracy. SEMANTICS is at play, look up the word. What does the pledge of allegiance say?
your vote don't count, if they do what are delegates, super delegates which is new and the electoral college then?
What is the difference between VOTING and PLEBISCITE?
whats the difference between rights and privilege?
So bring back the republic form of government, the national government, the pyramid side of government, awaken the sleeping Moors who ruled the entire globe, had a government here before our pale slaves, experiment and gate keeper, took over. We made them shriners and masons for a reason. Sorry, no time for the baby story.
why the heck is all this important? It is tied to our history, which is tied to your status in government, which is tied to jurisdictions which are injuring your life, liberty and property that's why. The mess we are in, help create that need cleaning up.
