1) "Stay out of politics!" my seniors warned. Why shouldn't I?
Circumstances have changed. Your seniors probably lived in the "old
Country," & were members of the majority race. They don't face
discrimination. YOU live in USA, and are a member of a very small
minority. You face discrimination, as historic and current record
clearly show. You need to rely on political clout to get the government
to protect your rights.
2) Will I get in trouble, if I join 80-20 PAC?
Are the founders of 80-20 in trouble? They are: Chang-Lin Tien
(late Chancellor of UC, Berkeley), Anna Chennault (a well known
AsAm GOP woman), Larry Ho (retired Harvard prof. of 2 endowed chairs),
Henry Tang (former Chair of Committee of 100), and S. B. Woo
(former Lt Governor of Delaware). Exercise your political rights!
3) Other AsAm orgs. sponsor candidate forums & lobbying activities, how
come 80-20 PAC only endorses candidates?
Endorsing candidates is politically more powerful than organizing
candidate forums & lobbying activities. Evidence? Do you see other orgs.
getting the results that 80-20 has gotten?
4) Why does 80-20 need money from me?
After 80-20 endorses a candidate, it buys media ads and sends direct
mails to deliver an Asian Am. bloc vote for the endorsed candidate. Why?
When elected, the candidate will help us back as president Obama is doing
now. Such activities require money. For example, 80-20 spent a lot of
money independently for Obama's campaign in the battleground states.
How 80-20 spent its money has a record. It must report to Federal Election
Commission website annually about income & expenditure. Visit:
5. Don't I get the same benefit, even when I don't join 80-20?
YES. Do you get the same sense of inner satisfaction & self-respect?
Practice enlightened self-interest!
