3. NO it is not!

Congressman Cole is repeating REPUBLICAN talking points, point by point.

Let us start here: WHO SUPPORTS THE EMPLOYEE FREE CHOICE ACT?

http://www.aflcio.org/joinaunion/voiceatwork/efca/allie...

Read the text of the Employee Free Choice Act: http://thomas.loc.gov/cgi-bin/query/z?c110:H.R.800 :

Here is enough to keep you busy for a few days: http://www.aflcio.org/joinaunion/voiceatwork/efca/whati...

I am 1/4 Cherokee. I have never lived on a reservation. I do feel for all Native Americans. Notice my sig photo. I doubt the good Congressman has ever read the proposed act. He is misleading his constituents. This digs deep. Natives tend to be unemployed, underemployed, lower educated, etc... While most on reservation natives live below the poverty line without basics promised by the white man many generations ago, he spreads this trash. I can see no way this will worsen the tribal sovereignty in any way, shape, or form. Notice the replies at the original link since this was posted. IF the individual wants a secret ballot, they can check that on the card. Simple. I will be donating $10 to Congressman Cole's opponent tonight.

This says it all!

Navajo Nation President Joe Shirley, Jr. and More Than 100 Tribal Leaders Endorse Barack Obama
By Nicole - Sep 20th, 2008 at 3:48 pm EDT


Chicago, IL Today, the Obama campaign announced that Navajo Nation President Joe Shirley, Jr., and more than 100 Tribal Leaders have endorsed Barack Obama for President. These endorsements come from tribes across the political spectrum and from all corners of the country. The Navajo Nation is the largest North American Indian Tribe, comprised of approximately 300,000 members located around Southeastern Utah, Northeastern Arizona and Northwestern New Mexico.

Senator Obama said, I am honored to have the support of President Shirley and so many of our tribal leaders. Their commitment to public service is something that every American should be proud of. Indian tribes in our country face a special set of challenges from issues of sovereignty to access to affordable healthcare. I look forward to working with Joe and all of our Tribal Leaders to ensure that we meet these challenges in an Obama-Biden administration.

For eight years, we have lived with Federal policies that erode our culture and language and, therefore, attack our very identity as Native people, said President Shirley. It is time for change: a real change! It is time for the United States of America to truly honor its obligations to its Native peoples. Senator Obama understands the uniqueness of Native nations and Native peoples that is why I support Barack Obama to be the next president of the United States.

In addition to the individual tribal leaders, Senator Obama has received the endorsement of at least seven tribal councils, including the Crow, Rocky Boy and Fort Peck nations and the All Indian Pueblo Council. He has also been endorsed by the Great Plains Tribal Chairmans Association. Earlier this year, Senator Obama became an honorary member of the Crow Nation.
