2012 Candidate for U.S. Senate
CHARLES AUGUSTINE COLLINS
1. Do you believe that the United States government should formally acknowledge the special legal and political status of Native Hawaiians, as it has done for Native American and Alaska Native Groups? If so, what would you do to secure such ackowledgment for Native Hawaiians? If not, why not?
I would introduce legislation to reinstate the government similar to the Vatican. Asking that the former Navy bombing range island be recognized as a state within a state. Build a Hawaiian ecocino there at the lower end and a Hawaiian cultural center on the other with an administrative arm.
2. What are some examples of actions that you have personally taken to better the conditions of Native Hawaiians?
Purchased bonds of the Reinstated Government. Attended 24-hour vigils and other events. Volunteered time to organize airmobile elements for the reinstated government. Taught Hawaiian language and history. The strongest advocate of taking care of the ‘äina, visit web http://charlescollinsussenatehi.yola site.com.
3. How would you address the challenges of the Native Hawaiian Health Care Act and the Native Hawaiian Education Act?
Form fact finding committees, try and develop evidence that these programs are the most beneficial ways to deliver health care and education, and if not seek other reasonable solutions that would be supported with the help of others and God’s help. Save the oceans!
