There were seven points that Mitt Romney made during the Oct. 3 presidential debate that would positively affect the people of Hawaii:
* No cuts in military spending, which is 18 percent of Hawaii's economy.
* Romney pledges to make North America energy independent. This will support Hawaii efforts to introduce natural gas and lower our outrageous electric rates.
* Put an end to President Barack Obama's $90 billion in support for wind and solar scammers. This will save the people of Lanai and Molokai, and will help plug the big hole in the general fund caused by alternative energy tax credits.
* Allow parents of autistic and learning disabled children to have vouchers so they no longer need to hassle with the Department of Education to get the education their children need. This way, the Department of Education will no longer feel obligated to spend $3 million of taxpayer money a year suing them.
* Keep federal pressure for reform on the Hawaii Department of Education and its huge bureaucracy. The money will finally go to the teachers and their classrooms.
* End Obamacare, saving Hawaii from the HMSA/Abercrombie Health Exchange and introducing competition into Hawaii's monopolized medical insurance market. This will help lower the cost of health care tremendously.
* Protect Medicare against the $716 billion in cuts enacted by Obama. This makes it easier for doctors to keep practicing medicine in Hawaii and will help keep hospitals solvent.
Sounds like a plan from an intelligent, true leader to me. Let's do it.
