please cole....with your lack of historical depth, explain to me how states rights tea partiers are good for Indian Country... they hate the federal government which protects the rights of Indians against states rights advocates like Noem and Bono amongst others. Without the federal trust and treaty relationship these states would do what Georgia did to the Cherokees in the 1830's... what Indiana did to the Indiana Miami Tribe for most of the 19th and 20th century....what Kansas did to the Wyandotte, Munsee, and Peoria and Miami Tribes...What Rhode Island did to the Narragansett Tribe in 1880 or what New York State did to the Haudenosaunee Confederacy in the early 19th century. Why must people like you require so much education about history to make realize how historically inept you sound. Maybe people sound condescending because they can't believe the words and ideas in print out of some people's mouths. State's rights people try to emasculate the federal government to go after Indian Tribes and minorities. That's what the Tea Party is about in Indian Country. They use the same language as the politicians who advocated congressional termination in HR 108 in the 1950's. When they say they want freedom for you or less regulation it's because they want these regulations out of their way to steal tribal lands and mineral and resource assets. Are you really that clueless to this???
