Basic Cherokee Government Lesson for Rep Watson

This is the way the Cherokee Nation Government Works:

1. A legislative branch which passes laws; the Cherokee Council;

2. A judicial branch; our court system - which by the way is very sophisticated for a Native American Court system;

3. A Chief - same as the US President, only he's called a Chief;

Hmmm, surprise, surprise, works just like the US Government; including trying to blame the Chief for that which the Cherokee People via a democratic vote asked for *that we be a Tribe of Cherokees who can trace our family back to a Cherokee Ancestor on the Cherokee Base Dawes Roll*

So quit vilifying our Chief, Chad Smith, he's done an excellent job in pursuing this matter, for something the Cherokee people VOTED for.

Hmmm, I guess there is one difference - our Government listens to it's people.
