Sick and tired of lo­cal gov­ern­ment al­ready

The Maui News - - OPINION -

Just by view­ing the news on tele­vi­sion and news­pa­pers, es­pe­cially let­ters to the edi­tor con­cern­ing lo­cal gov­ern­ment in Hawaii, there seem to be tons of cor­rup­tion and dis­sat­is­fac­tion on the vot­ers’ part go­ing on.

When a gov­ern­ment worker at the lo­cal level does some­thing dras­ti­cally satanic, he or she more than likely retires or gets as­signed to an­other po­si­tion. That is hardly just pun­ish­ment. Nev­er­the­less, these wrong­do­ers will stand the judg­ment of the great Lord who con­trols the en­tire uni­verse.

Pres­ti­gious Forbes mag­a­zine called Hawaii the Repub­lic of Hawaii many years ago and things haven’t got­ten bet­ter. In­creas­ing crime and rapidly grow­ing home­less­ness, just to name a few nu­ances, prove this given point. Talks about a “po­lit­i­cal ma­chine” in Hawaii was a hu­mon­gous is­sue decades ago and it, in my heart and soul, has got­ten im­mensely worse.

I know of win­ners and losers in cer­tain vot­ing dis­tricts on the Big Is­land, who I won’t men­tion, are more than likely get­ting a piece of the pie from var­i­ous projects in­stead of be­ing in op­po­si­tion. Gov­ern­ment in Hawaii is ba­si­cally Satan’s plat­form where elected of­fi­cials and losers laugh their way to the bank in the minds of many. Enough said!
