As a native Hawaiian who has not been represented by the Senators who are trying to pass the Akaka Bill, (S.1011,) my immediate family and I urge you to vote NO to that insidious bill.

When the bill was first proposed, a hearing was held in Honolulu and the testimony was overwhelming against it for a variety of reasons. Because of that, hearings on the neighbor islands were cancelled.

We want to ratify or reject that bill before it is taken to your committee.

Our voices have been purposely shunned by these snollygosters who prefer to dictate to us rather than represent us. These small interest elites are an abhorrence to the democratic system and might be in it for personal pecuniary interests rather than defend the concerns of those most affected by it.

There are issues to be resolved even before considering the actions they are proposing. We vehemently reject this bill and conditions it wants to set up for us. Our concerns, circumstances, the situation that confronts it, need to be addressed first.

There are legal international ramifications that must be settled and abided by; such as violations of the laws of occupation, neutrality, and the lack of a lawful treaty of annexation/cession which the US is unable to present. The multi-ethnic Hawai`i nationals overwhelmingly voted against cession to the USA in 1897 and we support their choice.

We love our country as much as the US Americans love theirs.

There is a political and moral thing to do and that is vote NO on S.1011.
