John Carroll on Civil Rights

 

 


Inclusive legislation to banish racism and intolerance

Q: The country is torn apart. What would you do to rebuild bridges?

A: I don't think the bridge has ever been built. Since before the days of Dr. Martin Luther King, the "bridge" has been under constant construction, and it is far from nearing completion. As a U.S. Senator I will do everything possible to bring to Washington the values of aloha (love), laulima (cooperation), ho'ihi (respect), and kuleana (responsibility and accountability). Values that have guided my long career as an attorney, politician, pilot & businessman--values that got me re-elected to state office. As a US senator I would vote for and propose inclusive legislation that will ensure the evils of racism, intolerance and bigotry never have a place in America again. Most importantly, I would work every day to build that bridge between two parties who fundamentally want the same thing: A better America. Our country may be torn apart--often down party lines--but it is not too late to start working together.

Opposes same-sex marriage, but 14th Amendment trumps that

Q: Do you support same-sex marriage?

A: No. I think the 14th Amendment trumps whatever feelings I have on the subject. A number of states have passed same sex marriage laws including Hawaii.
