Hawai`i is not, and has never been in or a part of the United States.
So you cannot secede from something you've never been legally part of.
You cannot quit something you didn’t join. You cannot resign from something to which you don’t belong. You cannot divorce from someone to whom you were never married.
Hawai`i regaining its independent status is a matter of reinstatement; of putting something back into its rightful place.
Since Hawai`i was never lawfully made a part of the United States, its rightful place is still that of a sovereign, independent nation.
The current status of Hawai`i is that it’s people, lands and government are being held captive by the US.
The Free Hawai`i movement is not seeking to secede from a bad union, it is seeking freedom from captivity, and the freedom to resume Hawaii’s status as a sovereign and independent nation.
