Well clearly you only read PART of what was written. What did your parents tell you your heritage is? Have you proved it? DNA? Professional
Why yes I have. 50% Norwegian and traced back to Norway. 25% Swedish, recently connected with that side of the family and filled in gaps. Son's of
the Mayflower registered, Son's of the Revolution registered. So yes, I have. The last two go under scrutiny by those organizations and they examine
the family line.
Here is the kicker. There is a family story that some of my forefathers were aided by Sacajawea and that we might have intermingled with the
Shoshone, but since it is only conjecture and speculation, I don't make any claims. To me, its a family story.
This is a Republican manufactured non-issue. The vast majority of us repeat what we have been told by our parents throughout our lives
regarding our heritage and never feel the need to vet it. It has nothing whatsoever to do with character.
I can care less if democrat or republican, you obviously too the knee-jerk reactionary path. The vast majority of people can care less about heritage
in a candidate but it was brought up as an issue; petty maybe, but it was there with no documentation to back it up. I would be just as critical if
it were on the other side of the aisle. Party politics only corrupts the stupid.
