True Libertarians hate the wrongs done to American Indians

Indian Removal was a pillar of Jacksonian Democracy, a plank that he actually ran on in the first election open to popular vote. Other presidents before might have pondered what to do with the recognition of tribal rights, but Andrew Jackson was the first to actually, openly practice genocide and ethnic cleansing against races and nations that were, for the most part, peacefully dwelling among them. His "final solution" was only different than Hitler's because Jackson didn't have trains to carry it out. Van Buren, Jackson's VP, and chosen successor, carried out the policy; but even without the internet, the odor of this travesty was smelled around the world.

I believe that because We, as a nation, have never fully judged and repented of the evils that were done against American Indians by the highest office in the land, that that office has been corrupted to do more evil against all races and nations to this day.

Check out these, and other short history videos done by Dr. Amy Sturgis, for a much more informed view of some key parts of American Indian history, and how it affects our liberty today.
