Don’t Donate to Either Party Yet

Dear Fellow Asian Americans and other Friends,

Don't give $$$ to any presidential candidates yet. Wait till 80-20 has endorsed one of the two. When we act as a bloc, we'll have political clout, i.e. our voice listened to!

Jewish Americans are very effective because they can swing 8:2 bloc votes specific to candidates and issues.  Their population is only 40% of that of Asian Americans, or 2% of the general population. Result: Their voice is heard loud and clear. Why are we still a pile of sand?

80-20 will hold the politicians accountable through a written and enforceable pledge to our community (*More details below).

We multiplied our political clout through our Doubling Champaign last year. Will you help sustain the momentum by renewing or upgrading your 80-20 membership?

The 80-20 Collective Leadership

* For the candidates, the winning formula is to harvest what is in abundance (the Poor's votes and the Rich's money) and do so with the least liability (commitment). A core mission of 80-20 is to hold them accountable to our community through a carrot and stick approach. As early as a decade ago, 80-20 was rated as the 2nd most effective cyber organization by "Click on Democracy", a book written by three non-Asian Am authors

Here is how it worked in 2008: We asked each candidate to commit in writing to an enforceable list of Asian American concerns. Initially none responded. However, we induced Clinton to pledge ALL YES to our questionnaire when she is under pressure from Obama. We issued a call for action to defeat Obama which induced Obama to pledge his support to our community. We then campaigned for Obama to defect McCain who never answered seriously. Check out the approach and Obama's delivery records at

In the 2012, neither Romney nor Obama has answered our updated questionnaire, are you going to reward them with your donation or votes? Do you negotiate before shopping or after you have already paid?
