Blue Hawaii?

Well, Hawaii has been a "blue" State for awhile; perhaps they're changing their demographic. It may have something to do with the "big tent" of the Democrats including some pretty "off the wall" special interest groups.

I've encountered a number of conservative types during my recent time here, and it seems to be more prevalent than I've noticed on previous visits.

I found this newspaper called the "Hawai'i Free Press", and their motto is "The untold story, the unspoken opinion, the other side".

They have a list of "Hawai'i Conservative Websites" listed, as follows:
http://www.hawaiireporter.com
http://www.smallbusinesshawaii.com
http://www.grassrootinstitute.org
http://gophawaii.com
http://www.honolulutraffic.com
http://www.educationbeathawaii.org
http://www.hawaiirifleassn.org
http://www.tfhawaii.org (Tax Foundation)

http://www.kalapanapundit.blogspot.com (Grant Jones)

Very interesting reading; we shall have to wait and see what happens...

camojack,

I checked out the Hawaii Free Press site and found it to be very interesting. the articles were informative and broad-ranging in conservative viewpoints.
Good stuff!

Now if we can only have something done about the weather over there, the place could be a...paradise!

Jack, I'm sure you're doing all you can to help change Hawaii to a red state. I'm hoping that any upcoming move I may be forced to make will NOT involve relocation to a "blue" region of the country! That would make the move even harder! :-(

I like the weather in Hawaii just the way it is; averaging in the 70's during the day, and the 60's at night...

When I had breakfast with my buddy the house builder in Hawaii yesterday, he told me he voted for Bush both times.

Small businessman...go figure, huh?

I have a cousin who lives on The Big Island...I assure you he and his household are a part of The Vast Rightwing Conspiricy...he's a Pastor.

Aloha, and welcome to my little corner o' da "blogosphere".

Come back I will, as I do every year.

My plan is to retire there eventually, and towards that end, I bought 3 acres of desert in Ocean View...Ka'u District, on the Big Island.
(But you prob'ly know where it is...)

Three acres that indicates you are in the Ranchos, makai of Highway 11. I lived in Ocean View for about three months, but couldn't find any work out there. So I moved to the east side. That was about thirteen years ago.

I found your weblog via my referrals from your entry "Blue Hawaii." Thanks.

Makai yes, "Ranchos" no. The subdivision is "Kula Kai View Estates", a gated community.
(None too far from Ranchos)

13 years later there may be more work available now, I do not know. I do know that there are a lot of houses going up in the area nowadays, and have been helping a friend build his. Also, another couple of my friends over there are in the construction trades.

Your referrals from my entry "Blue Hawaii"...as in people following the link I posted to your blog?

I've added you to my blogroll, too...

Building started booming all over the Island about four years ago. Although, I'm getting a little long in the tooth to be pounding nails. :-(

Grant:
"Long in the tooth", eh? I wasn't suggesting that you do heavy construction work, but there are always other occupations available when an area becomes more developed.

I'll have to check out that Sitemeter biz...mahalo to you, too.
