RESOLUTION IN OPPOSITION TO THE AKAKA BILL
Whereas the Akaka Bill violates the fundamental values inherent in the Hawai`i Republican party’s LLIFE Platform;
Whereas the Akaka Bill imposes an entirely new level of governance upon the Hawaiian people;
Whereas the Akaka Bill trades away individual Liberty in exchange for government grants and favors;
Whereas the Akaka Bill denigrates the principles of Individual Responsibility;
Whereas the Akaka Bill creates unequal opportunities, fiefdoms of favoritism, and artificial barriers to our citizens;
Therefore be it resolved, that the Hawai`i Republican Party in convention at Lihue, Hawai`i, May 14, 2011, hereby expresses its unalterable opposition to the Akaka Bill and to any iteration of it that robs Hawaiians of Liberty and Equal Opportunity or imposes more government and the fiscal and moral calamities such a course inevitably brings;
Therefore be it further resolved, that copies of this resolution be posted on the Hawaii Republican Party website, distributed to Hawai`i elected officials and media for public dissemination.
