[quote=“dearpeter”]I’d like to see the DPP put forth a bill that would prevent convicted criminals from running for office. Then, when all the pan-blues vote against it (if they do), they would be giving themselves away.
The DPP should start doing things that really matter, such as:
[list]Start a national safety campaign urging people to drive better and put helmets on minors that ride motorbikes. This could be combined with ‘orders from the top’ for the police to crack down on bad driving and such things.
Get rid of Tongyong Pinyin since few Taiwanese can read any form of Pinyin anyway.
Pass laws to better regulate binlang farming to protect water resources.
Make sure high school students learn key geographic and scientific terminology in English.
And finally… how about building a display somewhere in Taipei to demonstrate visually how many missiles China has pointing at Taiwan? I can see a large hillside in Yangmingshan covered in 0.5 scale models of PRC missiles.

Wow, maybe you should run for politics.
In America if you’re a felon, you’re probably not running for office. You can’t even vote! It always amazes me how Soong can still run after stealing so much money. He should be in jail. All he got was a pat on the back.
I thought people were legally supposed to wear helmets, it just isn’t really enforced as much as it should…thats a problem none the less.
And we need to stop deporting fine English teachers. Sure they get away with taxes and what not, but think of the kids, THE KIDS!!!
