It is about two years, unless you have a medical emergency, need a car tag or some other situation where your tribal enrollment would help to resolve it.
I think you might need to read my writings a little more closely. Something can be bogus for one purpose, but totally legitimate for another. That is the nature of the CNO.
It is not my goal to convince you to enroll and vote. That is a personal choice you must make brought on by the creation of the state of Oklahoma. If this were 1899, living in California, you would be an alien to our Nation and I would not be having this conversation with you.
If participation were as it should be, where those of us who live under the governance of the CNO and must tolerate the corruption and abuse, we would be out-voting the Cherokees who live far beyond our borders and reach of these crimes. Again, I would not be having this conversation with you.
However, outlanders tend to vote in greater numbers and in greater ignorance of the plight of we who live under the governance of corrupt leadership. They, joining with the disconnected residents here and the hangers-on who benefit from the corruption, those Cherokees who bear the burden are grossly outnumbered to point where they continue to vote in fewer and fewer numbers.
As an outlander, you are only important to the Cherokee people within the Nation if you are educated to the plight of those who bear the burden of governance. If you vote out of ignorance or the deception pepetrated by the Chief's propoganda machine, then your vote means nothing to us, except that it might be the vote that continues the harm or puts an end to it.
No Fred, I'm not trying to get you to register and vote for your own sake, because you don't live under the burden of our governance. I am asking you to register and vote with the knowledge that your vote means more to us than it ever will to you.
