Though volumes could be written, its short, sweet, and to the point.


It takes more to tell a lie...

J Carlton, Calgary

The Government is Criminal. There, that was short and sweet. :)

We should hold the Native Americans in admiration for their understanding of life. I believe, had the Europeans dealt with them more charitably, this continent might be populated by people who respected treaties.

Has anyone ever seen the entire income tax code?

Long-winded arguments are a sign of BS.

But it can take a lifetime to get some to understand or believe it.

Truth is fluid through sincerity. Patient, being seasoned with salt. Some of us, are of mingled blood, like minded. Standing Rock comes to mind, natives wishing for respect of their sovereignty as a nation, yet siding with those who would destroy individual sovereignty. The native foot caught in the European snare of socialism.

Ron,  Most Native Nations were socialist, and largely continue that tradition today.  As a show of respect, the word Native should be capitalized as you managed to do with the word European.

Um, no, Indigenous Peoples were not socialist, they were tribal families.  They were communal, not communist.  The key difference between them and the rest of the 'civilized' world, was that they did not claim ownership of the land.  They were not wards of the state, that's what socialists are.  They were noble sovereigns over themselves β€” socialists are subservient and dependent.  They were warriors!  Had a belief in God and honor.  The Iroquois Confederacy was studied as an example by Thomas Jefferson, some of its salient points included in the foundational charters of USA.

Perhaps you are confusing the Native Americans with the slaves in the South.  True communism in practice.

Patrick Henry, Red Hill

It is less in our words than in our deeds that
our love for the Truth is revealed.
