Dear Governor Henry, Oklahoma Legislature, Elected Officials and 2006 Candidates for Public Office:Sign PetitionSign Petition
One Nation United is an anti-sovereignty "front group" sponsored by businesses and industry in Oklahoma which seeks to abrogate legally-binding intergovernmental agreements, so these businesses can make profits at the expense of Oklahoma's 39 Indian Tribes and Nations.
One Nation United uses scare tactics and bullying against elected public officials in the media to harm elected public servants, and to harm candidates for public office who do not push their racist agenda.
This Petition is to request that Oklahoma's elected officials and candidates for office please say NO to One Nation United's lobbying, media, and campaign finance funding offers.
It is also to request that you reject One Nation United's demand for the use of state resources for anti-Indian legislation, anti-Indian campaigns, so-called "enforcements" against Indian Nations and their businesses and citizen smoke shops for PILT not owed, renegotiations of valid compacts, and other efforts to take away or diminish rights which have been given by Treaties, or compacted-for in intergovernmental agreements, to the Indian Nations within Oklahoma.
Please say no to One Nation, and in return, we the undersigned will not permit ourselves to be swayed by One Nation's press releases, criticisms, advertisements, and attempts to influence the public with their racist agenda.
