I think the main thing that should be remembered is the honor of the government for its promise to the people. The government of the USA should be held to a high standard and honor all of its promises to the people. There are many broken promises to many people including the Native Americans. We need a web site to enter all broken promises on because I think there will be a lot over the country.

The government has been in the business of breaking promises for decades.

Even if the government decided to honor its agreement, a road will never be built. Enviromental groups that can't even find Chamber's Creek on a map have already decided that they know what is best for the people of Swain county. They have already vowed to sue and sue again until they get their way.

God knows that a two lane road along the North Shore to Fontana would destroy the global eco-system and bring on the collapse of Western Civilization as we know it.

My wife and I are at odds on this subject. I agree you can't trust your own government to keep their promises.

When policeman break the law you have no law. when governments break the law you have dictatorship.

The government is forcing a cash settlement over a moral issue which a price can not be put on, welcome to anarchy.
