Most Nago locals oppose relocation plan for base - The Japan News

Most local people are opposed to hosting a U.S. marine base, the mayor of Nago, Okinawa Prefecture, said Thursday.

Only a dozen of about 2,500 opinions submitted by local residents approved the national government’s plan to relocate Futenma Air Station from Ginowan in the prefecture to the Henoko district of Nago, Mayor Susumu Inamine said at a press conference. The Nago city government collected public opinions on the relocation plan, which is based on an agreement between Japan and the United States, from Aug. 1 to the end of October.

Comment: Sounds to me like the Mayor is borrowing a tactic from Ed Schultz. Just in case you don't know who Ed Schultz is, fear not, your not alone. Anyway, he's the left-wing nut-job nimrod MS-LSD Radio and TV host who says a majority of American's support Obamacare as if it was the gospel even though there is no way to substantiate the claim. Sort like how Joseph Goebbels developed his "big lie" tactics for disseminating propaganda. 

So back to the question, do a majority of Nago residents support the move or not? A single poll that may have had questions posed in such a way so as to "push" an opinion can only mean one thing, we' just don't know! What we do know is that there's a Mayoral election for the city of Nago coming up soon. There are two pro-base candidates currently going up against the anti-base incumbent. Even if the incumbent wins, the total vote count for the two pro-base candidates might give us a better indication of what the truth really is!
