What is Victory in Iraq?
This question seems to be a recurring theme in the national debate. Few of those criticizing involvement in Iraq actually define what victory would consist of, much less articulating a coherent way to get there. I suggest this is answered by simple saying “Victory = Ax - By + Cz +/- …”. This leaves the more complex question, however, of what are the elements of victory (x,y,z) and how relatively important are they (A,B,C).

Few Optimistic Outlooks for Hawaii Education
The debate Friday night between incumbent Governor Linda Lingle and former legislator Randy Iwase highlights the reality that neither candidate will do much to improve Hawaii public schools. According to the No Child Left Behind (NCLB) ratings, Hawaii was 47th in 2003, second worst in 2005, and has consistently been in the bottom five. According to SAT scores, Hawaii public schools were the worst in the nation in 2004.

Democrats Should Have Picked Case
In their September 23 celebration over Senator Daniel Akaka’s primary win, the Democrats in Hawaii miss that they made a significant mistake in selecting the weaker of two candidates. Few mainstream Hawaii Democrats, however, will admit to their mistake, because few are category three politicians.

The Constitutional Rights of the Unborn
A “pro-choice” activist once told me that he believed an unborn human being is a human being, but that the mother should be allowed to kill her baby simply because having the baby was inconvenient. Many think abortion is a taboo subject, because of the complexities of personal choice, medical counsel, or “religion.” If one is able to get past the emotions and misleading language, however, abortion really comes down to two simple issues: 1) Is an unborn human being a human being; and 2) Is it all right to kill one human being for the convenience of another human being?

The Missing Elements of the "Great Debates"
Many have voiced their opinion that Hawaii Congressman Ed Case did better in the two monologue exchanges than Hawaii Senator Daniel Akaka. Few have noticed some of the glaring failures by Case to include: 1) Defining how Case’s positions on multiple issues are superior to Akaka’s; and 2) Showing how Akaka’s age is bad.

Similarities of the Drug and Terror Wars
Dennis Kucinich thinks that the path to lowering use of controlled substances is to legalize them. He claims that the present drug war causes many evils such as: recruiting many distributors lured by high profits, extensive violence to protect this lucrative and competitive black market trade, racial profiling and erosion of privacy rights.

Union Monopolies and Voting
In Hawaii unions have monopolies in public education and the shipping industry thereby maintaining the status quo by stifling competition. While benefiting a few with steady well paying jobs, a far greater number are hurt by poor service and higher prices.

Education Connects Business and Drugs
Hawaii attracts many by her exotic beauty. Often such people are talented enough to compete at all levels of business from the local community to the international sphere. Hawaii also has some of the best private schools creating world class high school graduates. Into this mix add the public schools, rated near the bottom in the United States, usually coming in ahead of only Mississippi, New Mexico, Alabama, and the District of Columbia.

The Democratic Party’s Commitment to Low Performance
Jack Murtha argues a reason for withdrawing from Iraq is that the military is not prepared to fight an unconventional war. Howard Dean argues that we can never win in Iraq, and therefore should not try. This pessimism is another form of the Democratic Party’s desire for an oversized expensive unproductive government.
