I support limited, constitutional government—limited in it's size and the scope of its powers, and would fight the tendency for it to grow beyond it's legitimate purpose.

She hates to see the country she loves, becoming more like the country she left. This week we are proud to feature 2016 Colorado Libertarian Nominee for U.S. Senate Lily Tang Williams! Lily comes on the show to discuss her experiences in China under Mao’s Regime, and how she found liberty in a little pocket sized constitution. Lily comes on the show to tell her story, and most importantly illustrates how communism and socialism cannot work. Let’s blast off- and rock some Liberty with Lily!
About The Guest
Lily Tang Williams is the Libertarian nominee for U.S. Senate in Colorado. The Libertarian Party of Colorado unanimously nominated Lily on March 12th 2016. Her name will be on the ballot this November.
Born before China’s Cultural Revolution in Sichuan province, the wild west of China, Lily was raised with her two brothers by illiterate working-class parents. She grew up under Mao’s regime, enduring poor living conditions; food rationing; Communist indoctrination; and political and social chaos. In this tumultuous environment, she quickly developed street smarts and compassion, as well as the values of perseverance and hard work.
Lily received her university law degree at Fudan University in Shanghai and was a faculty member of the law school for three years. She came to the U.S. in 1988 to earn a Master's degree at the University of Texas at Austin, School of Social Work.
Subsequently, Lily worked for corporations in Hong Kong and the U.S as a corporate executive. She then became a Colorado small business woman and entrepreneur in 2000.
Lily was nominated as a candidate by the Libertarian Party of Colorado in March of 2014 to run for the State of Representatives in District 44. She is the former state chair of the Libertarian Party of Colorado and currently State Director for Our America Initiative.
Lily is a grassroots activist and professional speaker. She has been outspoken promoting civil liberties, economic freedom, less intrusive government, and other policies that maximize personal freedom. She is an inspirational speaker to many people. Lily has been married to John Williams for 26 years. They have lived in Parker, Colorado for 17 years, with their children and German Shepherd Ajiao (which means 'cute and proud' in Mandarin). In addition to political activities, Lily takes care of family and business. She also enjoys traveling, cooking, music, soccer, poker and ping pong.
