US Congressional District 2 Candidate Questionnaire:
1. What is the number one issue facing Hawaiʻi, and why do you feel it warrants special attention? How do you plan to resolve this issue? If you have more than one item, please elaborate.
Answer: First off let’s resolve a matter that the media has been having orgasms with since the last election…”the Homeless Candidate”. I am not homeless and never have been! I love my home on wheels!!! Yeah, it can be a challenge, but i’m probably better off than most folks…I DON’T HAVE A $2,000 MORTGAGE HANGING OVER MY HEAD EVERY MONTH!!! Why do I do it? Simple…I’m saving up funds to go back home to Hilo, buy a nice modest home, grow some marijuana, and retire…ONLY KIDDING about the Paka…every one knows I don’t “burn”…BUT speaking of the “Paka”, LEGALIZE THE DAMN THING ALREADY!!! If liquor is legal, then Paka sure as hell should be. Classifying MJ as a category 2 substance along with heroin is purely Mento and without logic. Okay, as per “issues”…there are so many that affect us here locally as well as national, but one of the key issues I will be talking about is Hawaiian Sovereignty. Being one of the four writers of the Hawaiian classic “Hawaii 78” (Hawaii78.com), I have been a huge proponent of the Nation Within A Nation status, or what I term as The Restoration Hawaiian Nation Movement. Allow the process and progress of the present Kanaiolowalu Roll Call to continue. But the problem is, there is no Home base. If elected I will convince both Congress and the President to mandate 200,000 acres towards the new Hawaiian Nation, specifically the South Point region of Hawaiʻi (The South Point Solution). Hawaiʻi Island is made up of 2.5 million acres, much of it barren sitting unused,especially after the sugar downfall. In 10 to 20 years I see a vibrant nation with trade/financial treaties with dozens of nations across the world. Now THAT would be an explosion for the Hawaiʻi economy for years to come!!
2. What are your thoughts on health care reform and the Affordable Health Care Act? Explain.
Answer: Oooh, don’t get me started. First off I disdain the fact that our Fat (***) government has the right to FORCE me…I said FORCE me to buy health insurance or they will sick the IRS on me and send me to jail!!! WHAT THE HELL IS THIS, NAZI GERMANY???? Remember, this is the first time in US history that a piece of legislation of such significance was passed into law WITHOUT ONE vote from the opposing party (Republicans). THAT should tell you something as per the legitimacy of this law. Do you want to know what Obama Care will look like in just 4 to 5 years? Just look at the VA fiasco and disaster…THAT is a microcosm of what is to come with Obama Care. Just another disaster of Fat (***) Big Government trying to run something. REPEAL THE DAMN THING. Go back to what we had before and fix the tons of red-tape, crooked crap, beginning with solid Torte Reform.
