** Who is Rhoads trying to keep off the ballot?

** Don’t cross this “Rhoads”.

** NO to bill SB2392

This is not in the best interest of all voters nor all candidates.

Honolulu, HI - January 22, 2024

In response to recent submission of bill SB2392, the Hawaii Republican Party, under the guidance of State Chair Tamara McKay, would like to respond to the bill SB2392, Elections;Candidates; Ballots; Electors; Disqualification

Today, we raise our voice against a disturbing proposal that threatens the very essence of democratic principles and the constitutional rights of the people.

Just receiving the notice that “Karl Rhoads” submitted bill SB2392, is disturbing and alludes to the trend that may have to do with President Donald Trump, whom has not been convicted of insurrection.

The proposal, which dictates the exclusion of candidates based on constitutional or statutory provisions, is a direct offense to the fundamental rights of citizens. In a democracy, individuals should have the right to vote for whomever they believe best represents their values, interests, and well being of this country.

By excluding candidates based on predetermined provisions, this proposal undermines the core democratic principle of allowing the people to make informed and independent choices. Every citizen deserves the right to express their political will without unnecessary constraints.

The provision for challenging the inclusion or exclusion of a candidate, while present, may not provide sufficient safeguards. The potential for arbitrary decisions will be casting a shadow over the fairness of the electoral process. A robust democratic system should prioritize inclusivity, ensuring that citizens are not denied their right to vote for candidates of their choosing. It is not the business of Hawaii elected officials or government to chose whom we the people can nor can’t vote for period! Our voices will determine who is to be elected at the polls, and…

to prevent our choices is to silent our voices.

Furthermore, the restriction on electors of presidential and vice-presidential candidates, prohibiting them from voting for disqualified nominees under Section 3 of the Fourteenth Amendment, raises additional concerns. This limitation jeopardizes the democratic principle of representative electoral processes.

In the spirit of democracy, it is imperative to re evaluate this proposal, considering its implications on the constitutional rights of the people. Our nation's strength lies in the ability of its citizens to freely exercise their right to vote for candidates whom they feel has the strength to lead this country, and any measure hindering this freedom should be scrutinized to preserve the integrity of our democratic process. Whether Democrats or Republican, this bill needs to be voted down and consider the precedence it may set for the future.
