Why I Joined the Hawaii GOP on Tax Day
By Panos D. Prevedouros, PhD, Candidate for Honolulu Mayor

I am pleased to announce that on Tax Day 2010 I joined the Republican Party of Hawaii.


As an engineer and individual I am fiscally conservative, so joining the GOP, the party that promotes transparency and accountability was a natural choice.

I identify with the GOPs values of Liberty, Limited Government, Individual Responsibility, Fiscal Accountability, and Equality of Opportunity.

Hawaii is going down with its one party politics. Hawaii needs more balanced political checks and balances. There are simply too many Democrats and too many Lawyers. There are too few Republicans and too few Engineers. I wish to tip the scales by one.

Tax and Spend does not work. Too many wrong projects are being done at huge cost to taxpayers. Hawaii's affordability is moving in the wrong direction. More taxes and poor policies lead to accelerated brain drain, labor losses and unemployment.

We need to bring more business sense to government. Government is supposed to take care of its people like a good business takes care of its employees. Yet Hawaii's government is focused on special interests, political paybacks and, of course, taxation and empire building.

We all know that major change is necessary. But the changes cannot come through the establishment, that is, the Democratic Party of Hawaii. Hawaii needs a strong GOP. I want to help Hawaii change and find a better political balance.

Do you agree with my thinking? Please take this very brief survey by clicking on the link
