    Americans Taking Land from Native Americans

    Do you think it was right for Americans to do that?
    I know this is a 2,000 year-old topic, or older; but they really had no right.
    • They signed treaties and then broke them when they found something worth money.
    • They practically trapped Native Americans in reservations.
    • They hunted and killed Native American when they refused to give up their land.
    • If they left a reservation to hunt game for food, they were killed.

    Yes, but the Brits, Spaniards and French DELIBRATLY gave them diseases to take land.
    Americans wanted land for no good reason, besides money.

    Happens all the time, you can't expect the Indians to just get back the whole Northern American continent just because they were there first ... sheesh.

    True, but what I'm trying to say is, is that it's happening STILL; even though there are Amendments stating you can not take land by force.

    Do you see us using force...?
    And I haven't heard of anyone recently taking land that's part of a reservation.
    If it's happened, please enlighten me.

    By using force, I meant in the 1800s they pretty much said, "Give us what we want, or we kill you."
    I also meant "taking land" as in taking ANYONE'S land.
    Sorry for not clarifying, Ryan.

    I just got passed my 666 post!

    "“Religions are, by definition, metaphors, after all: God is a dream, a hope, a woman, an ironist, a father, a city, a house of many rooms, a watchmaker who left his prize chronometer in the desert, someone who loves you—even, perhaps, against all evidence, a celestial being whose only interest is to make sure your football team, army, business, or marriage thrives, prospers, and triumphs over all opposition. Religions are places to stand and look and act, vantage points from which to view the world. So none of this is happening. Such things could not occur. Never a word of it is literally true.” .”

    You can thank Manifest Destiny for the dead native americans.
