[quote=“ac_dropout”]That’s because the people of Taiwan have been duped by our own leadership. He promised not to change anything, but spent all his political capital trying to redefine Status Quo against people wishes. He single handedly brought Taiwan-USA and Taiwan-PRC relationship to the lowest point in decades.[/quote]So what did he do? Hardly anything has changed. Still called the ROC, same flag with the KMT mark on it and same national anthem singing about China. Nothing changed. The relationship with the USA is as good as it has ever been. Every few weeks the KMT likes to say, oh look at the relationship with the USA now it is so bad, in an attept to discredit President Chen. Everytime shortly after, the USA issues a statement that the relationship is unchanged. The relationship is the same or better, only that there is the KMT and Chinese Communist Party alliance trying to destabalize and discredit President Chen. The Taiwan PRC relationship is only bad because the CCP hates the DPP. I think that is a good thing. Any enemy of the PRC is a friend of democracy. By the way, the CCP loves Chairman Ma!
[quote=“ac_dropout”]The second part of the problem is that too many people from Taiwan are witnessing the economic rise of the PRC with a Communist system, and the economic decline of ROC with a Democratic system. Given the value system of the average person on Taiwan, it doesn’t take much for them to realise the political system is really just a shell game. You put shtty people in a Democratic system, you still get sht as a result.[/quote] Nobody is that stupid. Besides Taiwan’s economy is not that bad at all. Stop exaggerating to make the current administration look bad. By the way, anytime that the DPP wants to do anything good for Taiwan it is blocked by the Pan-Blue majority in the legislature. Nothing is getting done and there is chaos in this democracy because of the KMT not because of the DPP. The China Nationalist Party (KMT) is purposely trying to make Taiwan’s democracy look inept in an attempt to go back to the good old days of one party rule. The KMT does not like democracy.
[quote=“ac_dropout”]The question is really how can Taiwan get quality leadership from the democratic system it has? Because that is what the PRC has figured out in the top echelon of the CCP.[/quote]You are trying to sell Communism to Taiwan and the readers of this forum. That is a hard sale and it isn’t going to happen. Give it up, not even hard core KMT people want to live under Communism.
[quote=“ac_dropout”]I mean is this really the best Taiwan can do with a democracy, a lawyer that cannot speak the national dialect properly and plays legal games all the time.[/quote]The president went to the most elite university in the nation, National Taiwan University. He is brilliant and he is from the heart of Taiwan, Tainan, where they speak the language of the past 400 years. I think your mention of the legal games is the frustration of the KMT that Chen is so knowledgeable about the law that they cannot break the law and get rid of him. Hahaha, funny to see you Pro-Communist guys so frustrated. By the way, don’t be so racist about his accent. That is not cool at all. I would much rather have an Anti-Communist President loyal to Taiwan that speaks BeiJing Hua with a Southern Taiwan accent than a Pro-Communist Shanghai born politician with an impeccable accent. What you are saying is about as silly as electing a president just because he is handsome. Must look past the surface and stop being so superficial, are you sure you are from China and not from LA?
