Native Americans Against Obama For Good Reasons
Not only has Obama failed to support Native American Indian issues, Obama has not supported the Native Hawaiian Government Recognition Bill before the U.S. Senate during his first term in office as a U.S. Senator. Obama should be front-and-center of this issue as he proudly claims Hawaii as his home state.
S.310: U.S. Senate Native Hawaiian Government Recognition Bill:
Title: A bill to express the policy of the United States regarding the United States relationship with Native Hawaiians and to provide a process for the recognition by the United States of the Native Hawaiian governing entity.
Obama failed to address "Real" Native American issues during the Democratic Primaries.
Obama over all, did not win the Native American Vote in the primaries across the country.
NATIVE AMERICAN EDUCTION SYSTEM: A NATIONAL SICK JOKE!
NATIVE AMERICAN POVERTY RATE: A NATIONAL SICK JOKE!
OBAMA HAS NO PLAN FOR "CHANGE" FOR NATIVE AMERICANS
A VOTE FOR OBAMA IS A VOTE FOR NO REAL CHANGE!
NATIVE AMERICANS AGAINST OBAMA FOR GOOD REASONS
I trashed Graham's posting in Indianz.com's forum. Here's what I said:
Graham's posting consists mainly of a series of "Obama made no commitment" statements. My response:
1) Candidates are wise not to make too many commitments, especially when they haven't won the nomination or the election yet.
2) A lack of a formal "commitment" doesn't mean a lack of a policy on an issue.
3) McCain hasn't made a commitment on these issues either. He doesn't have sound policy proposals on most of them.
Obama on Hawaiian recognition
Graham is flatly wrong on the issue of Hawaiian recognition. Here are the facts:
Democratic convention plans Native Hawaiian recognition
As for this statement:
If Graham is implying that most Indians oppose Obama and the Democratic agenda and prefer McCain and the Bush agenda, he's wrong again.
Finally, some information for Mike Graham about where Obama stands on the issues:
