AMEN! If the Native Americans wish to be responsible American citizens of the current
American Government, they must pay their fair share of taxes administered by the
state, which is an subsidiary of the American Government, in which they live and
do business. After all, they do not hesitate to charge any gamlbler from any
state that darkens their doors a hefty amount, regulated by the state, that
provides a great income for the tribal governments. I do not know about the
Pojoaque Pueblo, the Cities of Gold, and Buffalo Thunder Casinos, but the
casinos of the Choctaw tribal government in Mississippi and Oklahoma do know how
to pad their income regardless of where their patrons live. If they can not live
by the rules and regulations set by the state in which they live, then they can
rebel and continue their fight for independence from the American Government.
Many other states, namely many of those of the former Confederacy, may
eventually do much the
same but for a different reason. The American
government and the American Experiment in democracy will survive only for reason
of its ability to implement and establish principles, rules, and laws hammared
out by compromise in the midst of an honest, free debate in which all parties
participate.
