Native Madness

By Senator Lamar Alexander
Posted at Redstate.org

“Becoming an American has always meant giving up allegiance to your previous country and pledging allegiance to your new country, the United States of America.”

Wednesday the House of Representatives passed H.R. 505, the Native Hawaiian Reorganization Act, a bill that would create a new, race-based government within the borders of the United States.

This legislation may seem insignificant, but embedded in this bill is an assault on the original national motto of this country which is inscribed on the wall above the desk of the President of the Senate and on every quarter, dime, nickel and penny: E Pluribus Unum, one from many.

H.R. 505 would, for the first time in American history, create a new, separate sovereign government within our country based on race, putting us on the path to becoming the United Nations instead of the United States. This bill will set a precedent for the breakup of our country along racial lines, and it ought to be soundly defeated.

I’m sorry to report that this legislation is also advancing in the Senate, where it is known as S. 310. It was passed by the Indian Affairs Committee in May. While it was considered and rejected by the Senate last year, it was a close call and the outcome this time around is far from certain. 56 Senators – just four short of the requisite 60 – voted in favor of considering this bill in June of 2006.

This bill would undermine our history of being a nation based not on race, but upon common values of liberty, equal opportunity, and democracy.

  • Not once in all these years did the Akaka Bill come on the Ballot at election time for ALL the people of Hawaii to vote on.
    It is being advanced by political powers, who by appealing to the Hawaiian vote are purely and only interested in advancing their own status to the detriment of the rest of the people.
