newsflash, the “native americans” had no sense of property or territory. They thought they were cheating the dutch by selling a “brooklyn bridge”.

you can’t own what you never claimed. This claim BS is just a hippie 60’s revision.

You are correct only in the sense that there were no formal documents or property records kept by the Indians when Columbus arrived.

That hardly translates into the Indians not being the occupiers and defacto owners of North America.

But so what if the Europeans were the original illegals!
They came, they massacred the Indians and they conquered.
Like it has happened umpteenth time in human history, the
conquerers become the next legitimate owners. No one guarantees justice. The sword is the mightiest weapon.

And now it is up to the current occupiers/owners of North America to repel the hordes coming illegally over southern border.

I stand by my original POV that white Europeans were the
original illegals. But so what!

It is no different than creation of Israel in 1948 by kicking
out the resident Arabs. Now the jews in Israel are the legitimate occupiers of Palestinian lands.
