Dick Smith: "Indian sovereignty is divisive, detrimental to society and the economy and should be relegated to the past. I see no justification for its continuance. Did I mention that my birth father was 1/8th Indian? He was also 7/8th American."

Benjamin Jones: "Perhaps if [State Rep. Wayne] Pettigrew researched this subject, he would know that although tribes aren't forced to pay taxes to the state on sales, they often do anyway. Tribes build schools, hospitals and roads that everybody in the community uses while providing jobs as well."
