  • Exempting Native Americans' casinos from taxes is actually racist.

    There are two types of racism: treating one race especially badly and treating one race especially well. So then would it be racist to exempt the Native Americans, as citizens of the Unites States of America, from taxes on their casinos just because of their skin? Yes, it would be racist! Furthermore, the government cannot justify its treatment of minority groups decades ago by treating today's white people poorly. I didn't enslave or kill or move any Native Americans, so why do I have to pay for my race's ancestors' crimes? Today, white people are constantly being shunned and pushed from success. For a white male, he can say almost nothing critical of anyone these days but somehow if those same words come from a minority than it's ok. What the heck? In my opinion, treating any group especially bad or good is racist, so Native American casinos should not be exempted from taxes.

  • no one likes taxes

    That is unless you are the goverment that gets to spend them on things like 5.000 dollar hair cut, and a bunch of other crap people could live with out. The point here though is not where the taxes we American pay is spent, but should the natives pay taxes. I say yes. If you leave here in america then you should pay taxes. Maybe not as much as we are paying now, but i think everyones taxes should go down. To many people think the world owes them something. And they should get over them selves and work for what they have. There great grandpartent deserved better then they got there is know dout about that.

  • What are taxes?

    I am a Libertarian and very against taxes, but what are taxes? Taxes go to the roads, to the bridges, to the schools, to our crappy welfare system, and our gross military complex. Do the Natives not benefit from any of these? Do they not use our roads, or schools, our welfare, and benefit from the military protecting them? They need to be treated as equals unless they are a completely sovereign nation that benefits 0% from our own tax dollars, otherwise they better start paying taxes.

  • Yes, Native American casinos need to be taxed because they need to help take care of this country.

    American Indian casinos are growing in numbers and the amount of money the casinos make needs to be taxed just like any other business. American Indians are running the casino's and all Americans are required to pay taxes. There casinos are not places of worship, which are exempt. The fact that history says we took their land cannot make them exempt. We took African Americans off their continent and they still pay taxes. That all happened a hundred years ago or more. None of us were alive stop what was happening. I have never cast disparaging thoughts at Native Americans; but, neither did I take their land. The past is over and what is left is today. Taxes for all; or, taxes for none.

  • Everyone pays taxes

    Wrongs done to the native americans in the past don't exempt them from paying their fair share of taxes on profits from casinos now. Keeping their lands is important, but profits from the 'public' in casinos should be required. Federal supervision & regulation is required. Cowboys & indians are all gone now.

  • Yes, tax all or none

    Either only allow Native Americans into the casinos to gamble or tax the revenue. As long as all races and creeds are entering the doors and spending non-taxed income, the revenue should be taxed. If the casinos would like to close their doors to all but Native Americans, then I could understand the Sovereign Nation argument.

  • Of course they should as they do have to follow other laws too.

    Isn't it true that Native Americans must follow speed limits? Not steal? Not murder? Paying taxes is the law it is not a characteristic of a nationality. Its time we end the charade that owning and running a casino is a trait of a heritage as it most certainly is not.

  • It's not racism

    They should not be taxed because not only did white immigrants destroy the lives of thousands of Native Americas, they also stole the land which they owned without any compensation. This is basically like compensation for all of the crap that white immigrants put the Native Americans through. And no we do not need more taxes, we need people who will monitor how our taxes are used properly. If we want our country to be better taken care of then we could use taxes for areas that actually need support and not the freaking military. People always point at the minorities when it comes to problems but really we should be taxing the upper class more, not Native Americans who came here first. What does the upper class even do with all of that money. They could definitely be taxed more without a significant change in their net worth. It would actually be racist to insist on taxing Native Americans but refuse to tax the white upper class more.

  • Tribes are Sovereign Nations.

    The fact that native tribe are sovereign nations and the
    U.S. Constitution › Article VI
    Article VI

    All debts contracted and engagements entered into, before the adoption of this Constitution, shall be as valid against the United States under this Constitution, as under the Confederation.

    This Constitution, and the laws of the United States which shall be made in pursuance thereof; and all treaties made, or which shall be made, under the authority of the United States, shall be the supreme law of the land; and the judges in every state shall be bound thereby, anything in the Constitution or laws of any State to the contrary notwithstanding. Read the treaties then debate.

  • No, haven't you taken enough from the Native Americans.

    As a native american I can say that we should not have to pay one penny of taxes on our casinos. The government just wants to get their hands on as much money as they can and it pisses them off that they can't have any of ours. You people took our land, homes, and slaughtered our people; so no, you can't have our money too.
