Good observations Richard. Thanks.
Copperwire9, fully agree with your post. Richard’s observation is spot on and accurate. With Mr. Trump elected President, there will be major political changes within the entire Country, and if the changes conform to the Original intent of the U.S. Constitution, we all win. Maybe, it is time for such a change for the United States.
In true doublespeak, regressive = progressive.

Kudos to Charles Djou for speaking out. He would always be a welcomed addition to the Democratic Party! He would probably win more elections as a Democrat!

Another option is for all the representatives from Oahu to caucus as a group, vote on the leadership the House positions. This will ensure that the outer islands stop running things and using Oahu as their cash cow. Those from Honolulu county districts who fail to cooperate, should be called out on this, and other consequences.
The same for the state Senate.
Opposition to TMT has nothing to do with being progressive – I’m not sure where this falsehood gained traction but for some reason media keeps repeating it. It is the opposite of progress to prevent one of the greatest scientific instruments humanity has ever had from being built. That is not progressive – its NIMBYism.
Being an Independent I’m so sick of all the B$ the Dems have done to DESTROY this state. Its time to hit the beach and surf !
“quoted Djou in one ad as saying, “I certainly do not support Donald Trump and I do not want him to be our next president. Although Hillary will likely be nothing more than the same failed status quo in government, I stand with #NeverTrump.”
Wow! Another principled politician willing to the right thing!! People like Charles Djou and Tulsi Gabbard give me hope for the future!
HIRA as disintegrated and has been commandeered by a well-known internet troll and malcontent. Please don’t feed the troll.
So just who are these incredible progressive Luddite’s that we should vote for? Just cause people don’t listen to Gary Hoser does not mean they are not listening to a majority of their constituents.
Progressives are nothing more than elitists. The progressive concept of government closely matches with the socialist concept, both champion the rights of the state over the rights of the individual. Progressives want to abolish the Constitution in order to enlarge the scope of government. Progressives believe that the role of government should be determined not by our Constitution, but by whatever the needs (feelings) of the day happened to be. Simply put, Progressives hate our core principles of American government. They hate the Declaration of Independence, which protects the individual; and they hate the Constitution, which places permanent limits on government power. Progressivism is all about moving beyond the principles of our Founding Fathers.
