>> Wow...a state with worse ratios of Republicans than MA has. <<
That's 1 more than the Chicago City Council has. From 1993-2011 the chamber was 49 RATs, 1 Republican. Since last year, it's been 100% RAT.
One enormous reason why I favor granting HI independence. Make an arrangement for perpetual lease of the military bases and cut them loose. A Marxist state with a Marxist moonbat delegation, Marxist moonbat legislature, and a Stalinist hippie Governor has nothing to contribute to the rest of the country at large except to enhance our collective misery with leaders antithetical to responsibility, freedom and morality. Cut them loose and it may go a long way to helping them learn personal responsibility again.
Wow...reminds me of the Soviet Union or present day Cuba and China.
