Oh, that's just mean... True, but meanEverything Deckard said
> and why not? you slaughtered the native people by the hundreds and have attitudes changed that much now a days? no they are shoved up in reservations where they live like homeless people
First of all, Dean, if you're going to accuse us of something, get it right. It was at least by the thousands - probably by the millions. I'll be the first to admit that the policies with regards to the Native Americans were terrible, to say the least. It's not a lot different than the way any other country that's colonized North and South America treated the natives, though, so it's hardly fair to specifically pick on us. And there's no law that says they have to live on reservations. Where someone chooses to live is their business.
> We were taxed just as much, no more, no less, than the people in Britain in the colonial period.
True, but there's a difference. The British people back in Britain actually got a say in it. Actually got to vote on how they were taxed. Actually got to have representatives. We didn't.
