I don't have any problem with them celebrating their former way of life and their culture. The Irish do it on St. Pats day. The Amish and Mennonites do it all year long. But all of these groups pay their taxes and don't declare themselves to be sovereign nations!
LOL! Are your reeeeaaallly going to use Ireland as an example in this argument? grin
I don't see why not. They are loyal Americans but still proud of their heritage and pay all their taxes. I haven't heard any of them wanting to divide America up into a sovereign nation for themselves. And most big cities have a Chinatown section where the orientals tend to live but pay all their taxes and don't declare themselves sovereign.

Oh, c'mon, Kyle.

Read (in detail) the history between the Irish and the British. The parallels between the persecution of Ireland and those of the American Indian are in many, many ways, highly uncanny.
In the end, Ireland regained it's sovereignty and it's land.

And don't tell me that you won't read this one either. If you're at all serious about taking responsibility for your own knowledge and wisdom, you'll do whatever it takes to learn (just like everyone else).
