Omgosh! I was supposed to get thousands of Korean votes for santorum! I’m disapPointed in myself for not being Korean!! Maybe writer33 and I will both have to fake it!
Now I am the one who is embarrassed.
For some reason I thought you were an ethnic Korean, and have been thinking that for a long time on Free Republic, though I was aware of the religious difference.
My sincere apologies. (INSERT DEEP BOW HERE.)
Now back on track, if there are any Korean lurkers in California who support Santorum and are reading what I said, listen to what I said even though I made a mistake in who I said it to. It takes Koreans to effectively reach Koreans, and when Koreans vote, they often do so en masse.
I've seen just one or two Koreans work to turn out literally hundreds of votes for their candidate, and working in organized groups can result in thousands of votes. It reminds me of reading the stories of the ethnic neighborhoods and the political machines of the 1800s, except that Korean voting blocs rely on a strange mixture of very old-fashioned techniques for the older voters with the latest Twitter feeds, email blasts, and text messages for the high-tech second generation.
It works. I've seen it done, and in a state like California, the Korean churches and the Korean business community are perfect examples of people who should vote Republican but too often do not.
I hope somebody is listening and gets some good ideas to put to use.
