Hey there! Thanks for dropping by Native Americans Against Obama! Take a look around and grab the RSS feed to stay updated. See you around!
It’s just hard for me to understand how people can look at Mc Cain’s actions and compare them with Obama’s actions and still some how rationalize even supporting Obama for any length of time. The attempt to demolish Palin & family is inexcusible, just as it was inexcusible towards Hillary . What is our country coming to? Never in my long life time have I seen such scorch & burn tactics … just unbelievable. Keep making the wonderful vidoe’s … they are thought provoking and beautiful.
I thought you might like to see this article about McCain… apparently he is a big supporter of Native American causes…
Empathizing with the plight of the American Indian is an issue that McCain embraced early in his Congressional career. McCain called the treatment of Indians “one of the darker chapters of the American people.” He described a Sioux reservation in South Dakota “where people live in the worst conditions of grinding poverty.” McCain criticized some of the tribes for imposing their own rigid bureaucratic rules, “stifling free enterprise” on the reservations. In some cases, entrepreneurs are forced to wait 2 or 3 years to start businesses, he said.
When he arrived in Congress in 1983, McCain said, he was recruited for a slot on the Indian Affairs subcommittee by Mo Udall, a fellow Arizonan who made great strides to support Indian causes.
After taking the position, he won recognition for a tribe in Connecticut that was having trouble getting recognized. “Know which tribe?” McCain asked, then answered his own question. “The Pequot, now the proud owners of the largest casino in the world.”
