Excerpt courtesy Conservative Firing Line via Liberty Alliance:
Lily Tang Williams is a Communist survivor…one who is running for the U.S. Senate in Colorado. What she sees happening to America has caused her to “get off the couch” and get involved in politics.
Born in Szechuan Province in Communist China, Lily grew up under dictator Mao Tse Tung. She was indoctrinated into Communist thinking at an early age. All of that changed when she came to America 27 years ago. With the help of her husband, she finally began to see the parallels with what happened in China to what is happening here.
One of her most powerful memories was when she was 7 years old and told her friend, ‘I bet I will be in the first batch to join the Young Pioneers.’ It showed that she was “too cocky, too confident.” Her friend told the teacher, and Lily was publicly ridiculed for not being “humble.” She didn’t conform, so her teacher held her back. The teacher purposely shamed and embarrassed her – the memory of that day is still vivid in her heart.
Those days of shame and humiliation are long gone, but Lily says it took her about “20” years to “wake up” to the actions of the US government.
“WHEN I WAS A CHILD, WE WERE ALWAYS AFRAID OF CRIMINALS COMING TO OUR HOME. WE HAD NO WAY TO DEFEND OURSELVES. THE ONLY WEAPON WE COULD HAVE WAS A KITCHEN KNIFE- NOTHING ELSE. WE WERE BANNED FROM OWNING GUNS…
GUN CONTROL IS THE ONE OF THE FIRST STEPS TO TYRANNY. MAO DISARMED THE PEOPLE. WE WERE DEFENSELESS. HITLER ALSO DID THE SAME. ANYONE WHO DISAGREED WAS CONSIDERED A ‘COUNTER-REVOLUTIONARY.’ MILLIONS DIED.”
When she reflects on the fear of the government that was rampant in her childhood, she worries about what America is becoming. She sees the continual attempts to ban high capacity magazines and weapons as steps to expand government control over the people of America.
Because of her passion to stop America from going down that same road, Lily is running as a Libertarian because she does not see any difference between the Republicans and the Democrats.
Read the rest about Lily’s comparison of the U.S. to China. It will frighten you! If it doesn’t, feel free to move to China. We don’t want that system here.

When you know how bad it can be (China), you’re willing to fight much harder for the freedoms so many Americans take for granted!
