Guam PDN: Ron McNish on Political Status Questions

Link:

If elected leaders here in Guam wanted to really get a better deal for our citizens from the federal government, a strong domestic or internal process would be used. In all of the years I have looked at this, no leader has ever really taken this approach. Instead, everyone seems addicted to playing dress up with the United Nations and talking in a nonsense stilted language they feel the United Nations uses. The reality is that the game is with the federal government, not the United Nations.

There is a good chance that the Ninth Circuit Court will issue a ruling in the Davis case before the November elections. Will our elected leaders still try to keep the 5 percent happy or are they going to worry more about those in the 95-percent zone? Luckily, you can vote on what they say.
