Jonathan is a Political Consultant, Lawyer and Economist, known for his Political work with the Tea Party and Rick Santorum's Presidential campaign in 2012. He was awarded for his poltical activism, as one of the top Conservatives on Campus by the Young America's Foundation (YAF), an organization dedicated to continuing the legacy of Ronald Reagan on College Campuses.
Upon completion of his college career, he achieved a Masters in Economics at George Mason University, in Fairfax, Virginia, learning Economics from Liberty-minded Mercatus Scholars & a law degree from the Antonin Scalia Law School at George Mason University in Arlington, Virginia. He has provided both Economic and Political insight on Fox New Radio, and television outlets such as One America News.
Jonathan was frequently ranked among the top juniors and often compared to one of his good freinds & Chess Olympiad Gold Medalist, Sam Shankland. In high school, Mr. Soo Hoo felt a calling toward public service, and community organizing, walking away from a potential career in chess and pursuing academics, with an eye toward helping his country.
Jonathan attended UC Davis, graduating with a Bachelor in Political Science, taking 25 and 27 units in 2 of his last 3 quarters to graduate early, so that he could help elect conservatives, and advance conservative values full-time.
Then, Jonathan graduated with a MA in Economics, and JD from George Mason University / the Antonin Scalia Law School at George mason
In College, Jonathan received his start in Political Activism when the College Republicans recruited him after watching him keep Liberal Professors at UC Davis honest all semester long at the front of the class room, while they sat at the back of the classroom. Beforelong, Jonathan resigned his position with the College Republicans to help Rick Santorum becom President, building the largest statewide student aparatus for any Presidential Candidate in 2012.
After leading the movement, the Young Tea Party Patriots, and Tea Party Students both asked Mr. Soo Hoo to unify their student activism movement, and lead them to new horizons. Under Jonathan's leadership, the Tea Party Youth Movement grew from 5 college chapters to 30 statewide leaders, and eventually merged with the Tea Party Patriots. Since his term with the Tea Party movement, Jonathan has consulted political candidates and organizations on outreaching to grassroots. This included Gubernatorial and Presidential Candidates, and Statewide parties.
On Campus, Jonathan's political activism awarded him Young America's Foundation's Club 100 award for the nations top Conservatie activists. Mr. Soo Hoo often credits his chess training and ability to see trends before they happen for his success building successful grassroots organizations.
Jonathan has frequently contributed his knowledge of economics, and incentives on Fox News Radio analyzing how current public policy or bills will impact the incentives of individuals and the potential economic consequences of the bill.
Jonathan's MA in Economics from George Mason emphasized training in Public Choice theory, development economics, and Adam Smith. He wrote his final paper at George Mason on Adam Smith's impact on the Framers (75 Pages), which he intends to turn into a book. Jonathan often quotes F.A. Hayek, saying,
"Nobody can be a great economist who is only an economist—and I am even tempted to add that the economist who is only an economist is likely to become a nuisance if not a positive danger."Jonathan believes the foundation of good policy is good economic theory: his analysis of Smith and Developing nations gave him a unique insight into what makes nations prosperous and what makes other nations remain in poverty. He applies this understanding and background in his political and economic commentary.
Growing up in one of the most liberal communities in America, Jonathan found himself the only conservative in the entire school. That experience prepared him to defend his conservative values. His Conservatie philosophy is grounded in liberty, which works concurrently with sound economics.
Conservatism, Jonathan often says, is this reverence to the original ideas of the Framers, and their understanding of human nature an incentives. It goes back to Federalist 51, when Madison wrote, "If Men were Angels, no government would be necessary; if angels were to govern men, neither internal nor external controls would be necessary."
