Self-Empowerment came from fighting for ourselves

      80-20 has NOT been completely transparent  about the battles we fought in order to achieve self-empowerment f or our community.  Now, however, that Pres. Obama has successfully completed his  2 terms, and Sec. Clinton is not likely to be our next president, 80-20 can tell  these war stories without unduly
offending these two former political leaders.   

                                        WAR STORY 1

      The 1st "War Story" tells how 80-20 struggled against and then worked with Obama, including how Pres. Obama fulfilled his promises to us and how we gratefully thanked him.  It is a near perfect example of self-empowerment 
through fighting for ourselves.

      Background Info:  The time was 2008, 8 of the 9 Democratic presidential 
candidates had already answered 80-20's questionnaire with 6 yeses to its 
6 questions.  But  candidate Obama had not.   Since he was the expected winner of the Dem.  primary, 80-20 was forced to begin a fierce struggle 
against him.

      The Battles:   See date & subject title of 80-20's e-newsletters when the                                   battles were raging:

      Empowerment Coming As a Result of the Battles:

Good News   

Click here   to see Obama's signed reply addressed  to S. B. Woo, President, 
80-20 Educational Foundation.  The first 3 questions were about removing the glassceilings, which he only partly honored.  The last 3 questions were about increasing the number of AsAm federal judges, which he completely fulfilled.
See the graph fellow: 

Tripling since 2006

    The total number of AsAm federal judges with life-tenure TRIPLED.   The
number of AsAm federal Appeals Court judges increased from 0 to 4.   Two
of 4 were mentioned as potential future Supreme Court Justices by the
nation's largest newspapers.

     Saying THANKS  to Obama with our Bloc Votes:

      80-20 PAC spent about $60,000 to lead the AsAm community to say "THANKS"  with our bloc votes.   In 2008, the bloc vote was +37  points in favor of Obama.  In 2012, seeing that Obama had honored about 75% of his promises to our community, the bloc vote was enlarged to   +47  pts!

      Next week, we'll publish "War Story 2".
