Why Don’t Chinese-Americans Vote Republican?

By: Inoljt, http://mypolitikal.com/ 

The Democratic Party has always been the party of immigrants. Even as everything else about the party has changed, as it has turned from a party of Southern whites to the exact opposite, immigrants continue to vote Democratic. In the 1850s the immigrants were Irish-Americans. Today they are Mexican-Americans.

Of course, not all immigrants support the Democratic Party. Many immigrants, such as Cuban-Americans and Vietnamese-Americans, vote strongly Republican. There is a very simple explanation for why this is so, an explanation that requires merely one word:


Former Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger provides a story that resonates with many Republican-voting immigrants:

When I was a boy, the Soviets occupied part of Austria.

I saw their tanks in the streets. I saw Communism with my own eyes. I remember the fear we had when we had to cross into the Soviet sector…I remember how scared I was that the soldiers would pull my father or my uncle out of the car and I would never see them again. My family and so many others lived in fear of the Soviet boot…

I finally arrived here in 1968…The presidential campaign was in full swing. I remember watching the Nixon-Humphrey presidential race on TV…I heard Humphrey saying things that sounded like socialism, which I had just left.

But then I heard Nixon speak. He was talking about free enterprise, getting the government off your back, lowering the taxes and strengthening the military.

Listening to Nixon speak sounded more like a breath of fresh air.

I said to my friend, I said, “What party is he?”

My friend said, “He’s a Republican.”

I said, “Then I am a Republican.”

This is a common experience with immigrants from communist countries. Many Republican-voting immigrants are refugees of communism. In the Democratic Party’s economic program they hear echoes of the communist countries which they fled. They therefore turn to the Republican Party.

Which brings us to the biggest Communist country of them all: the People’s Republic of China.

There are a lot of Chinese-Americans in the United States. Many of them constitute immigrants who suffered tremendously under communism, through the Great Leap Forward and then the Cultural Revolution.

Yet Chinese-Americans are also a highly, highly Democratic constituency. One exit poll put 73% of Chinese-Americans as voting Democratic. Why does the Schwarzenegger experience not resonate with Chinese immigrants?

One reason might be that most Chinese immigrants are not communist refugees. Many anti-communist immigrants were persecuted as a specific class or individually by communist governments. They then fled to the United States. On the other hand, a lot of Chinese immigrants came to the United States as students, workers, or via family connections. Many of them represent people who benefited from the system in China. This is especially true for those who came as students or workers.

There is also the fact that China’s Communist Party is by far the most successful of all the communist parties out there. This dilutes the potential opposition against it. For instance, the Chinese community would probably not support an American embargo on China aimed at toppling the communist government there. This is quite different from the Cuban emigrant community.



China's current education system

      China's education system in the country at this stage is very successful, especially in compulsory education and university reform. University reform is a price segment power source of social progress. The basis of price segments in the Chinese construction period, focusing on infrastructure, expansion of urban functions, and allows the rapid expansion of urban functions is the soul of the forces participating in the real estate construction. And can support the rapid development of real estate is a national support policies and rigid to be seeking. Construction since the introduction of a private university education, university enrollment since the comprehensive (especially a large enrollment of 96 years), so high above the college into the university students wishing to dream, the process of rural areas into the city at this time Hou really start. In the country to the city's population of migrant workers in students, and really stay in the city is that these highly educated and highly influenced by the city's students, these students so that each of the rapid expansion of urban population, this is the Chinese from the countryside an important way to urban migration, and this means there are 15 years or so will be the process, ( From farmers in the late 60 children and 70 children in early and middle peasants in the late 70s to early 80s ---- rural students about 15 years or so), so the process of urban expansion in China there will be 15 years or so, but This expansion will slow down, and now is the rural students into the city's period of rapid, so the soul of the city --- the development of the rapid development of real estate would become, of course, thanks to the policy support. So China's education system is the shift from rural to urban areas the most successful means. He found the price required in paragraph development. So China's education system in the country at this stage is very successful.



Chinese Block YouTube Over Tibet !!

The Tibetan uprising in China continues to grow. At this writing over 100 are reported dead. Tibetan monks and nuns are facing Chinese tanks with Tibetan prayer flags.

Now the AP is reporting today that  

Internet users in China were blocked from seeing YouTube.com on Sunday after dozens of videos about protests in Tibet appeared on the popular U.S. video Web site.

The blocking added to the communist government's efforts to control what the public saw and heard about protests that erupted Friday in the Tibetan capital, Lhasa, against Chinese rule.

Access to YouTube.com, usually readily available in China, was blocked after videos appeared on the site Saturday showing foreign news reports about the Lhasa demonstrations, montages of photos and scenes from Tibet-related protests abroad.

The first blog about the Tibet UpRising appeared here on mydd late last week.

It is now at SavagePolitics.com and is cross-posted here with  links to the latest news reports of the mounting rebellion.

`Land of Snows' UpRising: Lhasa Burning, Power Lines Cut, Death Toll Rising

There is terror once more in the Land of Snows which has been under Chinese occupation by force of arms for close to 50 years.

New rioting by thousands of monks and angry crowds in Tibet has swept out of Lhasa across the nation and the region. Nepal has closed climbing on Mt. Everest.

The Real Threat

It's 11:45 Sunday night and the field can't sleep or concentrate on his work. Why? Well it seems the world is this close [that's my two fingers inches apart from each other] to becoming one large microwave oven. Yes folks, my man Kim Jong Crazy looks like he did test that nuke of his, and in essence, has shook his d&&k at the United States and the rest of the Western World. Now I see on CNN where some South Korean Ambassador is threatening economic sanctions against Kim Crazy and his crew. Like what good is that going to do? The people there are already starving, and unless you are a soldier in that country, you damn near only eat one meal a day anyway. I guess the Chinese stepping in to try to stop Kim Jong Crazy at the last minute didn't help either huh.

Folks, we all know what a mess frat boy made of the Middle East, but this will go down as the biggest foreign policy blunder of his reign, and probably of any President in American History. Yes even greater than LBJ and his failed effort in Vietnam. Because if this whack job in North Korea really has nuclear capabilities at his finger tips, there is no telling what type of damage he can do. I know hind site is 20/20, but Condi ,frat boy, and the crew should have joined those talks with Japan, South Korea, and North Korea. Or at the very least, unilaterally engaged them. Isn't it funny how we went after Saddam unilaterally, but we insist on a multilateral approach with North Korea? We should have shown some good faith, and let Kim Jong Crazy know that it's not personal, but the world just can't afford another nuclear power right now. I mean it's bad enough that we have India, Pakistan, and possibly Iran, packing the ultimate weapon. But to have North Korea join this little party...well let's just say the field doesn't sleep as well at nights knowing of those prospects.

I hate to beat a dead horse, well f%^k it, I am going to beat him anyway. If frat boy had not declared North Korea a part of the axis of evil, and damn near declared to the world that the North Koreans are our enemy, maybe we wouldn't be having to worry about Kim firing underground nukes with the capabilities of destroying 200,000 people. And if you are going to make those statements frat boy, you had better know how to back them up, and not commit our military and it's resources to the Middle East to take down mustache man. If we are going to accuse the North Koreans like we did in 2002 of violating their 1994 agreement with us by enriching uranium to weapons grade, then we had better be damn sure they did. Now, given the lies that we were told about Iraq, I am not even so sure that Pyongyang did violate the terms of that 1994 agreement between them and Washington. Yes, frat boy said they did, and we all know how reliable his administration has become. He said they had WMD's in Iraq too.

Now I am not totally absolving Bubba for this mess either. In 1991 North Korea set up an economic zone with the South, and wanted to move forward with more progressive economic policies. In my humble opinion, the Clinton administration did not do enough to facilitate this and were a little short sighted in how they handled North Korea. After the fall of the Soviet Union more should have been done to bring North Korea in line economically with other countries. Instead, we let China play the big benefactor, and they damn near controlled little brother North Korea, by being their sole supporter and provider of military equipment, and trade. But the real blame for the mess we are in lies with frat boy. I mean Stevie Wonder could see that Kim Crazy had his back to the wall. After the United States and her allies stopped sending him oil, and basically cut him off economically, just what did we expect him to do, but play the only trump card he has? Which is the threat of a nuclear weapon against mankind, and any nation that can supply him with food and energy.

Hey, it's been all down hill for our palls from the North ever since the division of the Korean Peninsula in 1945, and they look at their brothers to the South, and there is envy. I can't say that I blame them either. The South is booming, and the North is starving, and all that they-the North- has to maintain their pride is their military. A smart diplomat would have seen that, and a smart President would have recognized that the real threat to our security, is not the crazy man in Baghdad with the beard, but the short little man in Pyongyang with the f^&%d up haircut.

So here we are folks, on the verge of World War III. Serious this time; not some made up neo con war. This time, because the stakes are so high for the North Koreans, their people are starving, and their backs are to the wall, we could be in for some serious s#^*t. Let's hope the Chinese step in and talk some sense into that little mini me looking psycho. Because lord knows we can't depend on Condi and her crew to do it. She is too busy flying in and out Bushdad, and trying to make sure frat boy's faux war on terror remains front and center. This of course is essential to get the rethuglicans elected to the majority again in November.

Here is hoping that by the time I wake up tomorrow, the report on CNN will have been proven to be false, and Kim didn't test fire that nuclear missile after all. But somehow, the field doesn't have a good feeling about this. You know what, I think I will sleep in my basement tonight. I wonder where Condi is sleeping right about now? Wherever it is, I hope her phone works.
