Senator Bernie Sanders has identified issues and his position on such issues (https://berniesanders.com/issues/; obtained 07-5-2016). This current presidential candidate has a relatively high level  intuition (see previous articles on the mainstream 2012 US Presidential Candidates for the methodology used here and previously to determine level of intuition) and likely the highest of any candidate currently running for US President in either the Democratic or Republican Party. Per his website (https://berniesanders.com/issues/; obtained on 07-5-2016) he identified issues and his position on such issues. Here is an excerpt from one issue he identified: ”Empowering Tribal Nations” (https://berniesanders.com/issues/empower-tribal-nations/; obtained on 7-5-16):

” ‘Time and time again, our Native American brothers and sisters have seen the federal government break solemn promises, and huge corporations put profits ahead of the sovereign rights of Native communities.  As President, I will stand with Native Americans in the struggle to protect their treaty and sovereign rights, advance traditional ways of life, and improve the quality of life for Native communities.’ – Bernie Sanders

Native Americans are the first Americans, yet they have for far too long been treated as third class citizens.  It is unconscionable that today, in 2016, Native Americans still do not always have the right to decide on important issues that affect their communities.  The United States must not just honor Native American treaty rights and tribal sovereignty, it must also move away from a relationship of paternalism and control and toward one of deference and support.  The United States has a duty to ensure equal opportunities and justice for all of its citizens, including the 2.5 million Native Americans that share this land.  It is no secret that this isn’t the case today.”
