Clinton or Trump? Who Should Natives Support


As an American Indian citizen, who should one vote for: Clinton or Trump? Political parties in the United States reflect differing values about current and future U.S. well being. Both parties hold up the tradition of a democratic and market based U.S. state and society in somewhat different ways.

At its best America is about equal economic opportunity, human rights, civil rights, freedom of speech, gender rights, and freedom of religion. The fundamental values of the United States are based on a history of immigrants who have come to a new world to enjoy the advantages of market economy, individual accumulation, and equal rights. The mythology and vision of the United States focuses on amalgamating culturally different groups of immigrants and turning them into American citizens with American values and goals. Recently there has been more accommodation to differences in culture, race, and ethnicity.
