As far as I know the Lakota Nation did this in December, 2007. They also declared their sovereignty. Of course, the news wasn't filled with this too. And there are rumors that other Native American nations are also going to declare their sovereignty, just as the Lakota's did.
This might be way out there, but, if a state can do this, can an individual do this as well?
SANDPOINT -- It appears the Ron Paul wing of the Idaho Republican Party has scored its first victory at the party's state convention in this North Idaho resort town.
The state party's platform committee voted overwhelmingly Friday to add to state platform language supporting abolishing the Federal Reserve System and pegging the dollar to gold and silver.
The idea has been championed by Ron Paul, a libertarian-leaning Republican who recently gave up his run for the presidency.
Paul won 24 percent of the vote in Idaho's Republican primary and many of his backers are at the convention trying to pull the party to the right and get Paul delegates seated at the Republican National Convention.
