No doubt most mature American indian tribal members (conventional) are fully aware of their tribal histories and their own reliences . Democratic politics is quietly rewriting to correlate with Democratic national political scene. Most Indians know all too well loss of land and water rights to feds and state. But to blame to one arena is a half-truth. Federal govt. isn’t responsible WITH indian affairs as we witnessed how inept AZ Gov. BBabbitt was under Billy Jeff. Didn’t Cobbell originate under Billy Jeff? He ended up KICKING THE CAN. Kicking the can is popular w/Democratic public policies today. If average American Joe/Jane “is supposed” to speak through their Rep., it stands MORE and MORE dual citizen indians should be voting in the tribal polls and HOLDING THEIR Tribal Govts. Accountable! For elected tribal officials to say ‘we have no tribal money’ is a poor excuse considering how the FedGovt notably in the mid-70s gave tribes more self-reliance. But considering federal environmental policy requirements and tribal costs (probably) being given to Democratic-sponsored consultants, it is not wonder tribal govts are caught in this tangle of lies, half-truths of Socialistic Democratic Party and Obama Whitehouse. Most tribes mistakenly are waiting for ‘promised’ federal relief while not acknowledging the White House has over-promised on federal allocations to illegitimate interests, i.e. illegal aliens/children, same-sex, green party, etc. It is apparent this White House has had no plans nor demonstrated leadership.This is what Warren represents – continued reliance and dependence on the FED GOVT – while Warren falsely assumes Indian people support her. Sorry I am not convinced on how – pure and wooley and white as snow a full-fledged card carrying Democratic member is. Though blame is falsely given to GWBush White House - WHO though was in charge of the budgetary process starting in January 2007? Who was in charge of the Banking and Financial services prior to the economic meltdown 15 months later? Who passed continuing resolutions until the Obama took office? Irresponsible leadership and failed national policies (bent on breaking the Federal govt) is what Warren represents under disguise as an “indian”. Because of Democratic policies, we have a spending (not budget) problem and unfortunately, indian affairs and collective programs are taking the hit.
