    Correct
    Incorrect
    I will keep the status quo, giving the federal government authority to prosecute these criminals.
  2. Native American reservations have some of the highest crime rates in the country. How will you reduce criminality among American Indians?

    I will extend the right to prosecute criminals to the tribes and prevent common causes of crime.

    I will allow these tribes to use their natural resources and give them the ability to expand their economies free of unnecessary restrictions and regulations.

    I will promote the usage of natural resources, but I will put strict regulations in place to slow their economic development.
  4. Native Americans are currently not allowed to levy property taxes. Will you give them the right to do so?

    Correct
    Incorrect
    No. As part of the trustee system, Native Americans should not be able to levy property taxes.

    Incorrect
    Yes. As Americans, these tribes should be given the right to levy taxes, allowing them to expand their economies.
  5. Will your administration increase their intervention in Native American affairs or will you give them more sovereignty in handling their problems?

    Correct
    Incorrect
    The government will continue to interfere in Native American affairs. It is the only way to alleviate the problems currently impacting these reservations.
    Correct
    Incorrect
    The government will increase their intervention in Native American affairs. We must establish our power over reservations and control their economic progress and social issues.
    Correct
    Incorrect
    The government will decrease their presence in Native American affairs. This will allow tribes to handle their problems more independently, free of unnecessary regulations and restrictions on their economic growth and social advancement.
