CONSENT of the GOVERNED PROJECT

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.

Terrorism? Sovereignty activists prove UHH Professor's unspoken point

Dr Thom Curtis gave the August address to the Conservative Forum for Hawaii on the topic of “Home-Grown Terrorism” on Sunday, 22 August.

(Curtis is the Chair of the UH Hilo Sociology Department, he also led a student-run study of Native Hawaiian attitudes towards the Sovereignty movement.  The 2006 study, which was published in the print edition of Hawai`i Free Press, showed that many Native Hawaiians felt intimidated into silence by thuggish sovereignty activists.  Hawai`i Free Press will shortly re-publish our 2006 article on Dr Curtis’ study.  His speech at the Conservative Forum of Hawaii dealt exclusively with Islamist terrorism, but….)

After his speech, the meeting was disrupted by many Hawaiian Sovereignty proponents who dominated the session with loud and acrimonious statements and prevented the usual civil discussion expected of the topic.

President Walter Moe began the meeting by greeting the 100 or so in attendance..........(see link)

AUGUST MEETING WITH DR. THOM CURTIS: HOME-GROWN TERRORISM

Dr Thom Curtis gave the August address to the Conservative Forum for Hawaii on the topic of “Home-Grown Terrorism” on Sunday, 22 August. After his speech, the meeting was disrupted by many Hawaiian Sovereignty proponents who dominated the session with loud and acrimonious statements and prevented the usual civil discussion expected of the topic. President Walter Moe began the meeting by greeting the 100 or so in attendance, and declared the objective of the Forum was to present conservative ideas and bring people together for discussion and exchange of ideas. Following the Pledge of Allegiance to the flag, this opening tone was disrupted even at the beginning,

Effort to shackle county delayed until next election cycle

Effort to shackle county delayed Proposal would make it harder for council to raise taxes, take away rights by Peter Sur Tribune-Herald Staff Writer Published: Monday, August 16, 2010 9:40 AM HST A conservative group that wants to put the shackles on government overreaching has abandoned its effort to change the Hawaii County Charter in November. Facing looming deadlines to turn in some 13,500 signatures so the questions could be on the ballot, the Conservative Forum for Hawaii has shifted its focus to the 2012 election. Members hope a two-year window and perhaps a lower turnout in the upcoming midterm elections will translate to an easier path to getting their novel proposal onto ballots. The Big Island-based group unveiled its proposal in March, launching an effort that would make it harder for the county government to take away their rights or to raise taxes. One proposed amendment states that "any law passed by the Hawaii County Council" that removes a right or liberty currently enjoyed by the people can only become effective after it is approved by a two-thirds vote of the people in a referendum.
