Why are some of us so partisan?
Look at the Big Picture
When, God forbid, we are being sent to internment camps, &/OR
when our kids are being discriminated in college admissions , &/OR
when we face glass ceiling in workplace, &/OR
when we are demonized by the likes of Bob Beckel, &/OR
when we are beaten with a baseball club by rednecks for "losing" their jobs, &/OR
when we are "accused of spying until we are not " by FBI,
Are we asked whether we are Democrats or Republicans? Will either answer make a difference? So, why are we so partisan?
Look at 80-20
80-20 is NOT partisan. Our aim is to help all Asian Ams become equal citizens. Our methodology is to lead a swing bloc vote. Why? To induce both political parties to compete to serve our rightful interests by appealing to each party's own self-interest which is winning the next election.
Is 80-20 a Democratic Front? Here are the facts.
1. Democrats are for "race preference" in college admission. 80-20 has led the AsAm community to oppose race preference admissions since May, 2012.
2. CA Democratic leadership engineered the SCA-5 -- a CA constitutional amendment to permit "race preference" admissions. 80-20 helped stop it. See what Economist, a prestigious international weekly newspaper, has to say about 80-20's role in "STOP SCA-5."
"THE 80-20 initiative, an Asian-American lobby group, scored its first big success last October when it forced Jimmy Kimmel, a television host, to apologize (in writing) ... This week the group pulled off a more edifying win, defeating an attempt to allow Calif. universities to take account of race when deciding whom to admit."
3. When 2 Democratic politicians in CA betrayed the rightful interests of AsAms, 80-20 declared to drive them out of politics (Sen. Leland Yee and Assemblyman Paul Fong). 80-20 delivered.
Look into the background of those who have lied about 80-20. Do these liars' livelihood depend heavily on the fortune of the Republican Party? In contrast, 80-20's leadership has no position with the Democratic Party. Nor will they accept federal government appointments.
80-20 doesn't endorse candidates who are not willing to give written promises to help AsAms achieve equal opportunity
Not a single Republican presidential candidate has answered 80-20's questionnaires. So none was endorsed. In contrast, Obama, Biden and H. Clinton did. Indeed, which Republican candidate did answer our questionnaire while her Democratic opponent didn't, and was endorsed by 80-20? Who? Meg Whitman who ran against Jerry Brown for CA governor.
THINK. Would you want 80-20 to support politicians with our bloc vote, without a written promise? Is that politically wise?
Asian Am. Republicans:
