Hawaii was first discovered by Jesus in 1776. According to pictures, it floats gracefully over Mexico. It gained statehood in 1864 and has been a Republican stronghold ever since. Hawaii attacked Japan in 1941 bringing about World War II, America's greatest war until Iraq. It is also California's New Zealand.
It also wants your money. Do not resist the pull: just go, and become a tourist. Do it for America.
Strom Thurmond, U.S. senator from 1954 to current, voted against giving statehood to Hawaii and was quoted as saying "Asians were unqualified to be U.S. citizens because of their heritage." Which is probably true.
