The most powerful portion of the US Constitution with regards to The Kingdom of Hawai'i is the Supremacy Clause.
The Supremacy Clause is the common name given to Article VI, Clause 2 of the United States Constitution, which reads:This Constitution, and the Laws of the United States which shall be made in Pursuance thereof; and all Treaties made, or which shall be made, under the authority of the United States, shall be the supreme Law of the land;
As the SUPREME Law of the land, treaties must be upheld in order to render effect to any of the remaining lessor laws under the Constitution, the Federal or State Governments .
In 1850, the US Treaty with the Hawaiian Islands was enacted. Article One of this treaty provides for perpetual peace between the US and the Hawaiian Islands. Obviously, the invasion, annexation, and subsequent occupation of the Kingdom of Hawai'i by the United States, is a clear and direct violation of the supreme law of the land.
Moreover, it is pure folly to violate a law of the highest magnitude and to then proclaim adherence to the rule of law.
Violation of this provision of The US Constitution clearly, emphatically, and completely vanquishes the fundamental principles of the United States. Any alleged 'State' of such a union incorporated into the Nation in violation of the supreme law of the land cannot even remotely be proclaimed to be united.
Therefore, only by a complete restoration of the sovereignty of The Kingdom of Hawai'i, can the United States be free. You can only protect your own freedom if you protect the liberty of all other men. I can only be free if you are free.
This is the ha'ole version of malama kakou - we best care for ourselves by caring for others
Save the United States - Free Hawai'i !
We are the people we have been waiting for!
