In fact, I challenge any of the BFO that take issue with CU to take a ride up to Bruce and debate any member of the Muscogee Nation of Florida over the issue of CU and defend why they shouldn't have access to all of the beaches of Walton county.
The same reason the Muscogee Nation doesn't have access to your deeded property and you don't have access to theirs. This is the United States of America, a civil nation with a constitution. We uphold and support private property ownership. Check out the 5th amendment.
The Ancient Muscogee tribes did not originally have written laws, and they were not even nation. In fact they didn't have anything written.
Also, native Americans lived by necessity near sources of freshwater. They primarily fished rivers and bays due to the relative and practical ease and abundance compared to fighting the waves. They were not maritime-oriented. Their crude water going vessels were not very suitable for the gulf. They did not build sail boats.They did not sunbathe. My ancestors are native American and I am extremely proud of many aspects of their culture and history. But let's not try to rewrite it.
Their ancient culture didn't have written language and they did not have deeds to property ownership. You and I are citizens of the United States. We do have deeds and recognize the rights of property ownership. In fact it's one of the cornerstones of the TRUE "customary use" of lands of our nation.
The native Americans did not build a string of micro hotel/homes behind private property and attempt to conduct commerce sending hordes of their customers to enjoy someone else's private property. The native Americans didn't build restaurants and conduct commerce on the beaches. Ancient Native Americans were not commercially oriented at all.
In America, private citizens should have the right to own private property, and be protected from the tyranny of majority rule, fueled by a propaganda machine instigated by greedy developers and realtors who wish to make billions of dollars by conducting commerce using the real estate deeded to those private citizens. THAT IS SO VERY FAR FROM NATIVE AMERICAN CULTURE I cannot believe we are still even discussing this. Utterly preposterous.
Our constitutional "CUSTOM" of recognizing deeds so trumps any fabricated hollywood "custom" of ancient Indians "recreating" on a beach.
The problem with socialistic customary use is eventually you run out of other people's private beaches.
I am against forced occupation of deeded private property, both yours and mine. And you should be too, if you stop and really think about it.
