  1. Sonny Ramaswamy’s intimate relationship with Agribusiness, especially Monsanto, means that more GMOs, more RoundUp and other poisons, and more pollution will be brought to Hawai’i. Our land and water are already being poisoned by those chemicals, and Ramaswamy thinks that is just fine. I do not know how anyone who wants to cut back on the pollution of our aina can consider voting for him.

  2. Sonny Ramaswamy’s opponents’ intimate relationship with anti-GMO stupidity disqualifies their opinions from consideration except in as much as one should probably oppose whoever they support.
