As the Federal Government does for the Indian tribes?
But, it is the exception – many tribes still lack access to even the most basic of human necessities. Some haven\’t the infrastructure to provide running water, let alone business opportunities. The federal government continues to breach its trust responsibility, evidenced by staggering statistics: Native Americans have the highest rates of poverty, unemployment and disease of any ethnic group in America. Upwards of 70,000 Navajos have no running water. Many must travel several miles to wells and are forced to haul water back to their homes for family and livestock, while neighbouring non-Indian communities spring up in the desert like oases, so proud are they of their green lawns and swimming pools.
Hmm, what? You mean having government run everything doesn\’t create a nirvana, is not the promised land flowing with milk and honey?
Well, bugger me then….
