Did you feel impotent politically when a crisis fell upon the
Asian Am. community? Examples are (I) the Los Angeles riot of
1992, (II) the "Asiagate" -- campaign finance scandals of 1996 & (III)
the Vincent Chin murder in Detroit of 1982. With 80-20, you now
have the needed political CLOUT. We'll explain how in each case,
starting with (I).
(I) The Los Angeles Riot
Courageous Korean Am. were on the roofs with rifles defending
the lives and properties of their families. The police force
was protecting other areas of LA, but not Koreatown. The National
Guard was activated & ready to go. But politicians
ware hesitant about ordering the troops in. Another
terrifying day passed for Korean Ams., before the troops were finally
ordered in. Outrageous!
If, God forbid, a similar situation occurs, 80-20 will work with
Korean Am. leaders in LA to jointly place a phone call to the relevant
politician. We'll respectfully request that the troops be ordered in
IMMEDIATELY. But the underlying message is this:
"Order in the troops IMMEDIATELY, or you'll face an Asian
Am bloc vote organized by 80-20 to DEFEAT YOU in the next
election. 80-20 has an email list of 710,000 AsAm families,
80% of whom are registered voters and 40% of whom reside in
California. 80-20 has led two successful bloc votes in the
presidential elections of 2000 & 2004. For evidence go to our
website. In addition to using the emails AGAINST YOU, 80-20
will buy ads in Asian Am. media (radio, TV and newspaper) in
Los Angeles or California, to DEFEAT YOU in the next
election." See footnote 1.
Result? There is a 99% chance that the troops will be ordered in
IMMEDIATELY. Most politicians respond much more readily to the
fear of having some one gunning for them in the next election than
What if the 1% chance wins out??? In some ways, 80-20 loves the
challenge of being denied that rightful request. With 8% AsAm voters
in CA & an estimated 10% AsAm voters in LA, 80-20 is CONFIDENT to
DEFEAT THAT OFFICIAL IN THE NEXT ELECTION. See footnote
2 for why such a small % of voters can defeat that official.
FROM THAT "DEFEAT" ONWARD, the not-so-benign neglect of the
rightful interests of Asian Ams will be over. Your sense of political
impotency will vanish! Asian Ams become equal citizens of America!
That is how politics really works, although we should always try
win-win solutions first.
Join 80-20. That is how you & 80-20 mutually empower each
other. Next emails will show that you don't need to feel politically
impotent in cases (II) & (III) any more.

Footnote 1: If a readers hasn't seen the evidence of the two
successful bloc votes either, visit:

Footnote 2: To understand why a bloc vote by such a small % of voters
can determine the election outcome, see below.
Two candidates run against each other in a political division,
which for simplicity is assumed to have two constituent groups
only. One group has 1 million votes (8%) and the other has 11
million votes (92%). Candidate A, a novice, courts the larger group,
not being aware that the smaller constituent group has the internal
political cohesion to deliver a bloc vote in an 8 to 2 ratio while the
larger group does not. When the ballots are open, candidate A wins the
larger community by the ratio of 52/48. The margin of difference is
4%. Since the larger group has 11 millions votes, 4% of 11 million
votes provides a winning margin of 440,000 votes to candidate A. His
opponent, candidate B, is a seasoned politician. She courts the
smaller group and wins that community by a ratio of 80 to 20, which
is the voting pattern of the Jewish Americans and African Americans.
The difference between 80% and 20% is 60%. 60% of 1 million votes is
600,000 votes. As a result, candidate B wins the election by (600,000
440,000) or 160,000 votes.
