Aloha Friends. Welcome to part 2 of 2.
There are many strong and energy-filled conservatives and Republicans in Hawaii. Thank you.
Writing to conservatives and Republicans, mostly in Hawaii, I email rather than blog because this is a (quasi-) private discussion. These reports chronicle HRP’s story. My perspective is that of conservative, former State Party Chairman and RNC member. I am not here writing for any of my current conservative organizations, nationally or in Hawaii. Hawaii conservatives need to know that they are not alone. Please forward this to conservatives or let me know to be removed.

Readers’ Comments – Quick Hits – Presidential Campaigns
–I don’t necessarily agree with ALL our readers. “Thanks for the info on HRP. It’s not very encouraging, but it is interesting.“ “I cover my eyes in fear because the picture is so bad.“ “I am a district captain for Convention of States here on the Big Island.“ From a guy who has been in our party four months “You seem passionate. I recommend getting out there and pressing a little flesh. Getting to know your subject matter does wonders for your perspective.“ Big Island reader “In 2007-2008 I met Dylan Nonaka and volunteered to help him build a more or less conservative element on the Big Island. We had one small “caucus” that was supposed to have Honolulu HRP representatives give us advice. What arrived were clueless teenagers! What a fiasco – and things just got worse. My wife and I sent out hundreds of letters to the out-of-date list Dylan gave me.“ “What advice would you give to one who was interested in getting involved but not get wrapped up with these folks?“ Potential candidate “I’m really not sure how the party is going to keep the lights on down at the HQ. Thoughts like why anyone would want to be a republican in this state cross the mind. I’m frustrated.“ “The motions in the HRP is simply Rigor Mortis.“ “The HRP is just a Club and not a political party.“ “The party is rotting from the head and desperately needs reform“ “Rolfing is slippery. My senses tingled and not in a good way when I first saw him.“ “I was shocked when only 15,000 Republicans voted in the caucus, and that was a 50% increase over 2012. What!? In a state of 1.4 million people?“ “I agree that the HI GOP is weak.“ To HIRA “So how can we get rid of this slimy bit*h and the rest of her ilk and get real conservatives in office? Can’t the republican party just throw her out along with her counterparts since they are and want to be dems? This is frigging disgusting.“ “problem is current regime has very few that know how to run much of anything,“ “Fritz has nothing to offer but a fake smile. Never saw him do anything at Party in all my years of volunteer work.“
