Freedom is a precious gift. I was born in a land where striving to be free could cost your life… I learned at a young age that freedom is not “free.” It’s something that’s near and dear to me, something that I don’t take lightly or for granted. It’s not just freedom from an oppressive government; individual and economic freedom is also essential for a truly free society. I also believe that limited government, the free market system, religious freedom, self reliance, strong national defense and sovereignty are some of the things that help maintain America’s greatness. Along with these rights, that Americans have died to preserve, comes individual responsibilities. These are some core values of the Republican party, the same values instilled within me at a young age. That’s why I’m a Republican.
I believe that growth for the Republican Party comprises of two things: first, the invaluable message of small government, liberty, freedom, and the preservation of the American Dream that resonates with the masses; and second, the engagement of individuals outside the party to build relationships that brings that message to life. That is why groups like the Texas Asian Republican Assembly are so important. We are right on the messaging, now it is time to build relationships and bring that message to life.
