No. Absolutely silly premise. They have nothing to gain, nothing.

I may agree with you connery ,I just start such threads to see how some others view these kind of issues from an objective perspective

The US should be broken up into 1000+ city states

I may be wrong, but I think being part of the USA is a great benefit to them. USA citizenship is a pretty nice thing to have..

You should punctuate your own words I think.

The original government of Hawaii was overthrown and they were annexed by us against their will.
They should definitely have the option, although I don't think it would be good for them at this point.

Who is "them" anyway? Native Hawaiians make up less than 10% of the population at this point.

Yea but based on historical precedence, they (Hawaiians) should probably have the choice.
Again though, I don't think it would work out well for them at this point.

Greetings, foadi. :2wave:

Since they are State of the US now, wouldn't they be seceding if they left, like any other State?

Re: USA should gain independence from USA ?

It's a state, there is no right to secession.

Absurd question.

I mean, what about Kansas' independence? Since we're at this......smh.

Yes and history is a lesson to what happens to secessionists.

Defend themselves from whom? The world is not full of rapacious predators, especially not those who covet a deep-water port 2,000 miles away from the US and 3,000 miles from Japan. You paranoid, brah?
