Chinese American Understands What It Means To Live Free

Two bus loads of Kansas deployed yesterday morning to help turn Iowa red.  It was an exciting day from early morning coffee, donuts and the pledge of allegiance to hearing the news that the Des Moines Register had endorsed Romney on our return trip.  (First Republican endorsement since 1972)

There were many great moments during the day.  We were dropped in teams of 2 or 3 in precincts around Des Moines and knocked doors asking residence who they would vote for in the presidential race.  The response was overwhelmingly Romney.  After returning to Romney headquarters we were treated to meeting Texas governor Rick Perry.

To me, the most touching moment of the day occurred on the bus ride home. We had open mic so anyone on the bus could share their experiences of the day. Jane was an older lady who came on our adventure.  She was quiet and sat alone.  Jane was one of the first who made her way to the front of the bus to share her story.  She shared how important she felt this presidential race is.  She talked about how she and her husband had discussed coming on the trip, but since he was unable to travel had encouraged her to come.  Jane wasn’t able to walk door-to-door, so she made the 6 hour round trip to Iowa and made phone calls from their phone bank.  She didn’t go because she wanted to have a fun day, or had a friend to visit with or because she enjoys road trips.  She made the trip because she sees the trouble our country is in and wanted to do what she could do to make a difference.  Jane was born into communism.  She understand what it is and how it affects your life.  She told the story of how her father moved the family to Taiwan and eventually to the United States so they could have a FREE life.  She and her husband became American citizens and raised their family in America where they have lived free.  Jane loves freedom more than the rest of us because she understand what it is like to NOT be free.  She spoke of how concerned she is because she sees the policies of Barack Obama as communistic.   Jane has experienced both and she chooses freedom.

Let the story of this sweet lady inspire and encourage us all. If she can do what she did to make a difference in this election, there is no excuse for any of us to not do everything in our power to keep America free.   

 

Thank you, Jane, for inspiring me.

I was so moved after Mrs. Jane's speech, on her second time she put tears in my eyes when she start telling people about the blessings of our country and the importance to keep ur country FREE, "keep this country Free, freedom is good, communist are bad". Her request was lovely and strong at the same time. 

My brothers and sisters please let's follow Mrs. Jane's advise and request!

God bless you Mrs. Jane!  and Good bless your FREE United States!

I too was inspired by Jane's words. It seems that any naturalized citizen of the United States, particularly those from Communist nations, appreciate the US more than those of us blessed to have been born here (which Angelo also stated on the bus ride).
Several years ago our family hosted a high school student from Hong Kong, which is now under Communist Chinese control, but seems to enjoy more freedoms due to the great wealth it amassed while under British control. Still, she was amazed when we told her that we could travel to other countries without obtaining permission from the government.
"No papers?"
"Nope. We don't need to have permits to leave the country. Just a passport."
She was also amazed that my husband owned a handgun.
I'd like to recommend a book. It's entitled "A Heart for Freedom," and it was written by a woman named Chai Ling. Chai Ling was one of the student leaders of the student revolt and subsequent massacre at Tiananmen Square in 1989. She writes about her involvement in the protests, her months hiding from the Communist leaders, her asylum in the United States, and eventual success as a software business founder. She has become a Christian and focuses much of her efforts upon a charity called "All Girls Allowed," which seeks to support Chinese mothers who are pressured by family to rid themselves -- through abortion, abandonment, or even murder -- of their girl babies.

Thank you for your support!
