Liberals Will Love This!

The Lakota Indians, who gave the world legendary warriors Sitting Bull and Crazy Horse, have withdrawn from treaties with the United States.

"We are no longer citizens of the United States of America and all those who live in the five-state area that encompasses our country are free to join us,'' long-time Indian rights activist Russell Means said.

Liberals, and unfortunately Libertarians, will eat this stuff up like a dog eating its own feces. Indigenous people fighting against the racist and evil United States of America. I don't think the United States government is going to put up with a country within a country.

I like this part: The Lakota relaunched their journey to freedom in 1974, when they drafted a declaration of continuing independence - an overt play on the title of the United States' Declaration of Independence from England.

Thirty-three years have elapsed since then because "it takes critical mass to combat colonialism and we wanted to make sure that all our ducks were in a row,'' Means said.

The US Congress moves faster than this group.


AND in a totally unrelated story, The Cleveland Indians have claimed Jacob's Field as its own country. Smoking can resume inside the open-air stadium once again. ;-)
