An interesting read to the article considering the writer attempts to shown no biased, but closes in how he admires Barack Obama and gives website links. The responsibilities as US Citizen lie with YOU. The responsiblities as a Tribal Citizen lie with YOU. The Federal Government isn't in charge of the YOUR life, you can pick and choose what YOU like. You don't somebody like Barack Obama telling you who to dis-like based on color, accomplishments, or purpose. If anything, you will have to take on YOUR role as a Tribal citizen in holding YOUR Tribal Government accountable and responsibe. The tribal government lie of 'no more money/funding' is a poor excuse of putting to the blame somewhere else. Where is the federal allocations going? How is it being managed? Why are Tribally-runned, PL 638, being shut down, falling short of money? Where are Tribally-sponsored services going? YOU CAN'T continue to expect the Federal Government to hand you money anymore as Barack Obama has promised his special interests money. I don't want a hand-out from what Barack Obama represents. I want a hand-up from what NON-DEMOCRATS represent and have provided to Indian Tribes. Where was YOUR TRIBAL GOVERNMENT then and what where THEY doing during those times?
