The United States (kindly?) assisted in the abdication of the islands' Queen, and annexed the territory. Hawaii's two most important export crops are Sugar and pineapple. Obama was born here NOT Kenya.
Hawaii is the 50th and newest state, and is one of the most liberal states in the union. They have voted for the Democratic Party candidate in all but two elections (1972 and 1984) since they began participating in 1960.
On January 13 2018 an Emergency Alert message was sent to the citizens of Hawaii which said that a ballistic missile was due to strike the state and frightened a lot of people. Thankfully this was false & everything is okay.
