Reader Opinion: It's my land, too

I have said it before and I am saying it again, You cannot have a "nation" within a nation. The antiquated treaties with the "Native American" tribes should be abolished and turned over to the individual states' control. It is not right for some citizens of this country to not obey the laws set forth by our government. These issues not only irritate law abiding citizens, like me, but slowly seem to make rifts within the structure of society. Let them keep their land they have been given, but in all aspects they should be subject to all laws and statutes in each state within this country. Why should I have to purchase a hunting or fishing license? They don't have to. This is my land also. I was born and raised here, so was my dad and mom and my grandparents and I think have just as much right to do as they do.
