3. Where is Obama?

The governor and his cavalier team all the way down to the U.S Senator and the congressional "representatives of this corporate oligarchy and the sheriff up there in ND have decided all by themselves to not plow the road going into the Standing Rock protest camp, and to FINE people for bringing in food and other things with a threat of jail.

The last time I looked there was a Constitution and there were TREATIES and ACTS that this government signed with the Indigenous People, or is the lie just that one big lie, and where does it say that you can be treated like some terrorists when you protest your government or what a corporation is doing to your life to live. Did someone forget the Pre-Amble to the Constitution?

Obama has the power to stop this thing in its tracks, the Army Corp of Engineers is nothing more than a tool of Manifest Destiny and Doctrine of Discovery for some corporate interest that is not there function


Where is Obama?

We will not go away

9. SUPPORT

President Obama actually supports the pipe line, don't forget (http://www.nytimes.com/2016/11/03/us/president-obama-says-engineers-considering-alternate-route-for-dakota-pipeline.html?_r=0) he didn't talk about shutting down construction "Obama Says Alternate Routes Are Being Reviewed for Dakota Pipeline" that's the New York Times headlines.
