Slavery Apology The liberals and gays from California to Florida are crowing about the recent Congressional resolution on Slavery Apology. Should we really apologize for something that we didn't do? The logic follows were they better off when brought to America, and if not should we pay to send them back? How evil was antebellum slavery? What determines that slavery in America was evil? If the Bible indeed is the final authority on right and wrong, then what does the Bible say about the institution of slavery?
American Samoa History. What every American Samoa Candidate should know:
American Samoa has been a territory of the United States since the signing of the April 17, 1900 Deed of Cession. The Pago Pago Harbor area was the site of the coaling station and a naval base. During the late 1930's, the strategic importance of American Samoa proved valuable in its aggressive retaliation with the Japanese Empire. In 1940, the Port of Pago Pago became a training and staging area for the U.S. Marine Corps. During the War Years, the United States built roads, airstrips, docks and medical facilities exposing island residents to the American way of life. It was also then that American Samoans enlisted in the U.S. Marine Corps, thereby establishing a home guard unit. In 1945, the Marines left the island territory to resume its peaceful lifestyle.
Since World War II, American Samoa has developed into a modern, self-governing political system. The government is divided into three branches, similar to the United States. The Executive Branch is led by the Governor and Lieutenant Governor, the Legislative Branch is led by the local legislature, consisting of the House of Representatives, who are elected by popular vote and the Senate, who are represented by the village matai. The judicial branch is part of the U.S. judicial system, and American Samoa has a non-voting representative elected to the U.S. Congress.
