I agree with the opinions, expressed by those wanting this subject matter, become inclusive..as a Referendum in November's election. Having a general consensus or soliciting the opinions and decisions of the general public/citizenship...should not be discounted or left to chance.

Aside from facilitating the travel expenses to Hawaii and mainland US to apply for US citizenship as Eni proposes, I don't really see that much (if any) life changing differences in benefits when an Am. Samoa national becomes a citizen!!!

We may have the right to vote and be involved in US politicking as a citizen, but we can never run for president unless you're born there(US)!!!:) If I'm not mistaken, Guamanians and Pueto Ricans are US citizens and the whole nine yards, but are not allowed to vote in a presidential election???!!! Why not??? I wonder!!!

There's hardly any restriction (if any) nowadays to pursue an education or seek a better job in the US as we have been doing all these years, and some of us that decided to become citizens, did so easily!

Hence, whether you become a citizen or stay an Am. Samoa national, you still have to bust your okole to make a decent living for yourself and your family.
