Making It in the USA 

The difference between a GENERAL and a PRIMARY Election: The PRESIDENT is chosen by ALL voters in the GENERAL election. ONLY the party NOMINEEs are chosen in separate party PRIMARIES. In some states, only party members (those registered as Republicans or Democrats) may vote in respective party primaries. In other states, (California, New Hampshire, West Virginia, etc.) Independents may ALSO vote in a primary by simply asking for a ballot. (California refers to Independents as Declines.)

Why do Asian Americans (AsAms) have more voting clout in a primary?

Reasons are: a) in a primary election, there are many more candidates competing for our votes (11 Republicans and 8 Democrats so far); b), the number of voters is normally halved, because non-activists don't bother to vote in primaries; c), the number of AsAm voters will actually double, because in many states including California, at least the Democratic Party allows "Independents" to vote in its party primary. Another secret: while only 25% of the voters are Independents nationally, it is 43% for AsAms. We also register 33% as Democrat and 25% as Republican. The 80-20 will use its e-mails to drive all AsAms Independents to go vote for its endorsed candidate in states where Independents may vote in primaries, particularly in California

Summary: In a primary, the number of other voters will be halved and are spread among many candidates. Our number of voters will double and they will bloc vote for the candidate endorsed by the 80-20. With your help, we SHALL be the kingmakers in presidential PRIMARIES. If the 80-20 endorses one of the two top candidates in the Democratic primary in CA, that candidate will win! Stop. Period.

Do other minorities have this kind of voting clout in a primary?

No, even if the Hispanics have a larger population. The others don't have the e-mail list to reach and persuade their voters in primaries when the choice is large and the attention span of voters is short. The 80-20, using e-mails, can reach at least 50% of AsAm registered voters again and again.

Who will Benefit?

This power is NOT used for the 80-20. YOU and YOUR CHILDREN will benefit. America will be "a more perfect Union." We want only equal opportunity.

Help the 80-20:
   Was this column informative? Do you have questions? Post your feedback at http://www.80-20educationalfoundation.org/posterboard.html and pass this SECRET about our ability to become kingmakers in presidential PRIMARIES to your friends and relatives! Tell them that unity is power. Tell them to vote for the 80-20's endorsed candidate. Unite! A historic opportunity is at hand.

In Secrets III, we'll tell you how the 80-20 uses this voting clout to horse-trade with presidential candidates for equal opportunity for ALL Asian Americans. Please tell your friends of this column. Thank you.

S. B. Woo,
President
