Trail of Tears

May 19, 2014

How long does it take a tear to dry? I don’t know, but is a 184 years too long?

In 1830 the federal government used the Indian Removal Act to force-relocate Indian Nations from the South to Oklahoma (some bound in chains−a trail of tears) in order to transfer hundreds of thousands of acres of their land to white farmers.

Now Republican Governors in many of those southern states are inflicting pain on their citizens with the denial of Medicaid. Do they expect the poor to march west?

I don’t know, but our country has been down this trail and it didn’t work then either.
