17. I must live where those 27% Asians voted

Here in Texas... I am one of the very few Asians -- and there's several diverse types here including Chinese, Vietnamese, Indian, Phillipinos, Japanese, etc... -- that's liberal. What's worse is that these Asians are the type to plaster their cars with Right Wing propaganda. They even run for office as Republicans! It kills me. It's been already pointed out that they tend to vomit pro-business, anti-commie stuff... but a lot of the younger Asians are converted Catholics and Baptists and will vote on religious, anti-abortion matters. Also, the typical Asian sense of community gets trampled out of you in this state. I have seen relatives who lived nice, humble decent lives in their home country come over to Texas and go bat sh*t crazy about making money. They get high paying high level jobs and it's all about money. And it seems like it's never enough. There's a lot of keeping up with the Changs, the Nguyens, etc.They forget real quick about their humble origins. I have never forgotten. When I came here 25 years ago, we had to be on welfare for two months and it was instrumental in our survival. I have never forgotten that and will never deny that to others, no matter how successful I or my kids become. The only hope I hang onto is these Asians always aspire their kids to go to Ivy League schools and the such. Exposure to blue states can be a cure
