Aloha Friends. Welcome to part 2 of 2. Broken Party
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 – Campaigns
–I don’t necessarily agree with ALL our readers. “Hawaii gop is a joke. The only solution is to abandon Hawaii and move put pf state asap.“ “The first time you mention a name, could you put the first name as well?“ (YES) “HRP is tacitly providing you with the golden opportunity to constructively share your sentiments with us.“ Former candidate after reading last report of HRP corruption “Whew. Sure glad I answered you honestly before.“ “Interesting insight about the former Rs in office. Could have added those who ran as R but didn’t get elected until ran as D (former Rep Sonson, Sen Espero, etc — both are not local born so they didn’t know to run as D originally).“ “Your detailed descriptions of problems within the HRP reveal the pettiness which comes from folks who never experienced real fear and therefor concoct all sorts of irrelevant complications because they have lived in luxurious freedom and plenty so long they simply have no concept of what is truly important in this world and this country.“
Reader: Fukumoto’s “difficult to get a job”– she could have gotten work if she had been willing to apply for or take job that required hard work or didn’t have status. Moving here in 2002 from mainland without connections, I had to take jobs as transcriptionist and program coordinator to support my children, for example, because jobs I was trained for with a MS and doctorate weren’t available. My neighbor, an immigrant from Hungary, with a PhD in cellular biology, had to work selling Primerica and as security guard to support her son. We humbled ourselves to take jobs we were overqualified for but we did honest labor and are self-sufficient. Beth just didn’t want to really work?
Reader: My grandfather was a European champion in free pistol and an excellent shot in WWII. Mom as a kid made his bullets and he ordered some of his guns from Smith and Wesson….guns were his entire life; everyday! My mom and I just couldn’t stop laughing at the Mattis quotes.
Reader: Do you know why Gene Ward only served as a Trustee of the East West Center for a year rather than a full term? The President’s office had explained that he thought it was an honor (you know, his status obsession since he is a failure) and didn’t think he had to contribute to the center financially like all the other Trustees on the Board, so was given the boot.
Reader: The one toilet in HQ is not dirty! I clean it and the sink regularly. Please retract that remark! It reflects on me as several people know I clean it. My response: Thank you for helping at HQ, it is important. Seriously? Of all the issues for this corrupt HRP, this is what you choose to send me?
