" There were many large tribal nations, before the age of exploration. Probably the best example of a large tribal nation that was prosperous and well organized is the Cherokee Confederacy. " WOW, the Cherokee Confederacy was such a vast nation that it ruled over a whole 50,000 populace and today's estimates are about 370,000. Amazing. I think we should follow that example immediately. 400,000 is close enough to 300,000,000. " And the US is a democratic republic, btw." My personal belief is the "democratic" was added by arrogant Americans that wanted to brag about our "new" form of government. In other words, bullshit. " Also, I don't share the belief that land can be owned. It is a foreign concept to me. So "leaving" the US is a simple process, and I plan on doing it on my 18th birthday. " Where are you going to go where land is not owned? Also where are you going to go where tribal government rules? Are you going to live with the Cherokee?
