to change the county charter  and restore sovereignty to every citizen.

Recent quotes from three of our own county council members on their positions as elected officials are revealing as to how they view their proper roles : 

“it sometimes takes a law to change people's behavior”

 "Sometimes I have to be forced to do things that are right and I don't want to.”

 (I need) “to take charge, to lead our County, to define policy in the best interests of the people of our island. “

Frightening, isn't it !

Our county government lately has taken on 3 roles:

  • Administrative (such as determining how many police to hire, or where a road should go, or how to process garbage). This is an appropriate level of authority and responsibility for them to play.
  • Telling us what things we CAN NOT do i.e.:restricting our rights, more so every year
  • Taking our money: i.e.: taxes and fees

We the people have delegated out elected officials the power to be administrators, but we have NOT delegated them the power to restrict our lives and take our money without our permission.

The Consent of the Governed acts will restore forever this authority and sovereignty to the people of the Big Island.

Subject: Jones Act Reform video

Hello everybody,
   The video on the Jones Act at the Conservative Forum will be first aired on Tuesday, Nov. 12, at 3 pm, cable channel 54 on Hawai'i Island AND also streamed statewide/worldwide on the Internet on our website,

   This 70 minute program will be followed by a separate, but related, 20 minute program called Hawai'i Political Reporter that was done by Ross as an interview after the Forum concluded. So, together they run for 90 minutes.

   Both programs will next be shown on Friday, Nov. 15 at 7:30 am.

   Next week, I will email with future showing schedules throughout Nov.

   I hope the recording is ok. Spread the word.

   Thanks,  Ken
