Perhaps you didn't see the statistics on the polls. Even Maui and Kauai residents in majority supported the Superferry. Albeit the polls were close. I believe it was somewhere around 43% against and 52% for the Superferry with a undecided of 5%.<quoted text>
What the majority wants??? OK. Let's take a vote. All islands that vote for the ferry get it. Islands voting no, don't. Fair?
And while we're at it, let's vote on getting out of Iraq. And universal health care. And repealing tax cuts for the rich.
Majority rules? Sure.
I don't approve of the war in Iraq but I'm pretty sure I didn't hear much protest in the beginning when the Twin Towers went down. Didn't Congress unanimously agree on declaring war? As far as Universal Health, that is a mainland issue has Hawaii has the best healthcare coverage in the Nation. Tax cuts for the rich? I agree with you there, maybe you should get lower income people to go out there and vote.
But the topic here is the Superferry.
