Is Hawai`i Legally and Lawfully a State of the Union

Hawaii is not legally and lawfully a state of the union because Hawaii never wanted to be controlled by any one other than themselves. They all shared their crops their place and they all considered each other as a family. No one controlled them but they believed in their chiefs. Hawaii was taken away from the Hawaiians by the foreigners. They forced the Kings to do things they didn't want to, they planned behind their back and they even threatened them if they didn't comply. The Kings and Queen fought but ended up losing just so no Hawaiians get hurt or die. That is why Hawaii was not legally and lawfully a state of the Union because they never agreed in the first place.
