What happens when the rule makers are the rule breakers?

Posted by mrfixit on October 14, 2010

What happens when the rule makers are the rule breakers?

Well then you have rules that are really only made to keep the rule breakers in the position of power to make rules that restrict the rule followers and keep them from rising to a position of power.

Think about it, in this story you can see that the rule makers are violating the rules, again, working to get votes by any means, even if not legal.

I must have missed the amendment to the US Constitution, but can someone tell me when and how we extended representation without taxation to “Indians not taxed”? Did we not set them up as “sovereign nations” and if so, how and why can they now vote but be exempt from taxation? What is going on here?

Call me crazy, but it seems only fair that those who vote on taxes ought to be those that pay them, otherwise once there is a majority of non-taxpayers voting, they will vote ever increasing taxes on the ever smaller number of taxpayers, until there are no more payers and only takers, making us all poor. That is exactly the agenda of the elite progressive lefties. This makes it more fair internationally, so it is not by accident.

    Absolutely right on. It is not only voting rights the Indians have, it is also the amount of taxpayer dollars that fund the tribes and their lawsuits against us taxpayers.

    After a careful examination history, there is no doubt that there were atrocities committed against the Native American Indians during this nation’s past. And let’s not forget those did in fact go both ways in many cases, and some tribes fought other tribes, even making slaves of the losing tribe. There was plenty of wrong to spread all around.

    With that said, today very few if any remaining Indians were directly affected by these injustices, and it is time to move on. We cannot change the past, and no one alive today made any of the decisions that led to those horrible injustices.

    Today we are faced with some who think it is now time to create a new atrocity by imposing a “reverse” bias and special status based on the lineage of birth. To this I say two wrongs do not make a right. It is wrong for one to assume a special super privileged status over others, and that is true for anyone, from any race, tribe, etc.
