Cherokee Vote

I have to suggest that it is important for those who were victimized by this vote to not allow themselves to degenerate to the same racist level as the victimizers. Reactionary almost always fails when reason and logic are guaranteed to prevail. There are probably a great proportion of Cherokee who didn't show up at the polls and are saying " What have these fools done now?" Do not lose sight of allies who still exist in the Nation and as well as outside of it.
The primary issue is still a procedural one of unchecked majority rule violating the rights of a minority population by way of a consensus. Under no definition does this represent an appropriate function of democracy. Sovereign nations do not have members, they have citizens, and there are national and international guidelines to protect the rights of citizens in sovereign nations.
Allen.
