Here's a link for the info on Native Americans, APPALLING....

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Modern_soc ... _Americans

Economy and social statusThe United States is home to 2.4 million Native Americans. In comparison to the rest of the population, this number is a very small amount (only .9%).[11] American Indians have historically lived in extreme poverty. With the rise of Indian gaming enterprises, the problem of poverty seems to have disappeared. However, upon closer examination, we have found that this is not the case. While Native Americans have begun to take more control of their tribal economies and have begun to improve situations, poverty on Indian Reservations is still a major issue. The U.S. Census in both 1990 and 2000 indicates that poverty has prevailed on reservations: to this day, Native Americans have the highest poverty and unemployment rates in the United States of America. The poverty rate of Native Americans is 25%.[12]

Incomes of Native Americans tend to be low, and unemployment rates are usually high. For example, the unemployment rate today on the Blackfoot Reservation in Montana is 69%. This is a shocking comparison to the national unemployment rate today, 9.8% (US Bureau of Labor) or even during the worst part of the Great Depression, 25%.[13] According to the 2000 Census, Indians living in Indian country have incomes that are less than half of the general U.S. population.[14] The US Census reports that the median income of households based on a three year average from 2003-2005 was $33,627.[15]
In 1989, the median income of Native American households was $19,900. Average income varies by tribe and can range from $29,211 (Osage) to a mere $11,402 (Tohono O’Odham).[16] Over 20% of Native American reservation households make less than $5,000 annually while only 6% of the overall US population has an annual income of less than $5,000.[17] The average Native American family (3.41) is larger than the national average,[18] yet only 30% have health insurance.[19]

However, Indian tribes are becoming more economically independent in recent years. [The impact of Indian gaming] has been monumental, but non-gaming tribes have growing economies as well. For example, the Mississippi Choctaw Indians have incorporated industry into their economy. Automobile subassembly and plastic manufacturing are only two of the sectors in which the tribe is involved. Factories seem to contradict Indian culture, but ironically, industry helps culture thrive. By embracing industry, the Choctaw have been able to build a stable enough economy to prevent people from leaving the reservation and encourage people to come back, according to Chief Phillip Martin. Life on the tribe is more appealing because it is more secure. Jobs are readily available, and the tribe has revitalized public health, housing, and education.[20] Past federal policies have continually been detrimental to tribal economies,[21] but self-determination has provided tribes with the independence and sovereignty to combat a history of poverty.[20]

According to the US Census, real per capita income has grown substantially in past decades. In 1970, the average real per capita income among Reservation Indians was $4,347. This figure grew to $6,510 in 1980, dipped to $5,959 in 1990, and grew again to $7,942 in 2000. However, the overall statistic for the United States has also steadily grown over this span of time. The total US real per capita was $13,188 in 1970 and $21,587. While economy on Reservations has improved, it is still significantly lower than that of the United States.[20]

The tribe with the lowest per capita income on a non-gaming Reservation is the Crow Creek Reservation in South Dakota with $4,043, but it also has a very low population (1,846). The tribe with the highest per capita income on a non-gaming Reservation is the St. Regis Mohawk Reservation in New York. With a population of 2,581, it averages $12,016 per year.[20] The least successful gaming Reservation has a higher per capita income than the Crow Creek Reservation: The Texas Kickapoo Reservation, population of 423, has an average of $3,398. The most successful gaming tribe is the Viejas Reservation in California; its population is 232 and averages $28,128 per capita income.[20] Therefore, population is insignificant when determining economic success. A better measure is geographic location.

Further breakdown of poverty rates show that Native Americans are consistently the highest among each race. Reservation Indians have a 39% poverty rate; Non-Reservations, 26%; Black, 25%, Hispanic/Latino, 23%, Pacific Islander, 18%, Asian, 13%; and White, 9%.[20]

Here's another link from the Cheyenne Indians:

Here is my point again: The Big Government that wants us all depending upon them for care, food, housing, medical, utility, health, jobs, and well being, WILL NOT do it. We have a segment of our population that has a 100 + year history of not being provided for to prove the case!

I for one do not want to be calling anyone camrade, nor do I want Big Government telling me what to do.

No, there isn't. And there won't be until people really get fed up with the current system. By continuing to buy into the crap, you're just preventing that from occurring.

Quote:
Obama has been pushing the Big government, European system that is a failed system.


He pulls out the left wing rhetoric from time to time to fire up the base. What has he actually done that's so left wing? Nothing.

Quote:
But Romney, I'm not to keen on him but he's the safest of the 3. Conservative (I hope) and the only one pushing to get rid of Criminal Legislation, secure the borders, and cut regulations.


Romney is a liberal, east-coast Republican. He implemented Obamacare before it was Obamacare. He'll never get elected anyway, but even if he did, he would govern largely the same as Obama.

And so the only viable option is revolution? America doesn't have the heart for it, and there are too many splinter, or off shoot groups that would use that chaos for their own gain, thus destroying this country altogether.

No thanks!!! I'd rather have Romney than the current enemy of the state.

I'll get back to you on the leftist stuff.

Blue,

One of your own countrymen, a member of Parliment was speaking at CPAC, talking about how the US is now on the fast track that Europe has been on for years. Europe is trying to go in reverse and in the last 3 years we have sped up.

Socialized Government enslaves the people to big government. Socialism being a form of communism gives power to the elite, and the rest of us are dispensed what those in power wish us to have. I work in inner-city housing, and I see on a daily basis what government dependence breeds. Laziness, despair, alcoholism, drugs, crime, lack of independence, lack of self esteem, dependence, and much more. The programs brought about by this administration have begun to force anyone not in power into their system.

Congress, and the President are not required to use the same healthcare that we will get, why is that? I thought it was supposed to be for all?

At present the government pays for housing, medical, food, utilities, and tax incentives for those in government housing, but what if the government suddenly shuts that off unless you do a certain task? If you have become dependent upon the government for existence, what choice do you have? Now introduce the national id system with it's microchip where you will not be allowed to buy, sell, travel, work, live without it. Hmmm, sounds like it runs pretty close to Scripture on that, but I'm not gonna go there with this thread.

For a long time we have been a nation separated by color, but we were all knit on the same cloth. Red, White, Blue, all separate, but of the same flag. Now we have a leader who is ripping that flag apart, and empowering the fanatics within Congress to call for Planetary Citizenship instead of Country. Again, NO THANKS! Keep the change!
