Where is the outrage !?

Where is the outrage, condemnation and the will to rise against annexation?

Where is the DPP on this issue?

Why are they silent?

Is the DPP a sanitized version of the KMT?

Are Taiwanese resigned to this impending annexation?

Are Taiwanese only capable of rhetoric and armchair discussions?

Are Taiwanese so inferior that big decisions should be made only by the "superior" Chinese as history seems to continue to demonstrate?

Should Taiwanese always "raise hell" within this small "playpen" of a Constitution set up by the Chinese for incapable Taiwanese?

Are Taiwanese incapable of challenging the corrupt practices of the KMT/Chinese?

Are Taiwanese so resigned to the colonized mindset that this is "just the way it is"?

Answer the above questions and think about what we as Taiwanese Americans can do to assist a fumbling Taiwanese population which seems to day by day succumb to China/KMT's "soft approach" to annexation and don't even know it or are too complacent to recognize the seriousness of this impending loss of sovereignty and freedom which if once lost WILL BE GONE FOREVER. Then and only then will the Taiwanese people truly recognize what they have done. A tragic outcome which seems only to sink in when it happens and then it will be too late.

It seems likely that former Premier Su will be the next leader of the DPP. It is important to send a clear message to compel Premier Su to commit to follow the original guiding principle of the DPP which gradually has been eroded and in recent years, as the DPP leadership has been drifting towards the beacon set up by the KMT/China. Premier Su needs to know that there is strong support for Taiwan sovereignty and independence and despite the rumblings of "upsetting the status quo", our fundamentals must from time to time be asserted to our politicians lest they forget. The so called new generation of the DPP led by none other than former Chairman Hsu in key respects mirror the KMT in its China centric platform and its gradual loss of its Taiwan centric ideology. His lip service to Taiwan belies his main objective and that is to lead the younger China centric DPP members into the China fold. Again Taiwanese are doing what they do best and that is to follow, not to lead. How about serious constructive suggestions on how to send an effective message to Premier Su? Immediately, I suspect some of you may not agree with who the next DPP chairman will be much less the next presidential candidate in 2016 but that is not the main point. The message regarding Taiwan sovereignty and independence is the key.

蔣孝嚴:一國兩區 未來兩岸政治對話架構


世界日報特派記者羅印冲北京12日電

國民黨副主席蔣孝嚴昨天在北京表示,「兩岸同屬一中」沒有問題,根據「我們的憲法」及「兩岸有關的法規」,就是「台灣地區」與「大陸地區」。他說,自己並未使用「一國兩區」,但將來如果要推政治對話,會以這個架構往前推進。
蔣孝嚴是繼國民黨榮譽主席吳伯雄在北京提出「一國兩區」後,另一位在大陸提到兩岸定位的國民黨高層。相關論述在馬英九總統發表就職演說前夕,格外受到關注。

蔣孝嚴昨天出席中國大陸台聯舉辦的「台胞社團」論壇,大陸全國政協主席賈慶林與統戰部長杜青林也應邀出席。

蔣孝嚴致詞時表示,他出生在桂林,但在台灣新竹長大,不管被稱為大陸人還是台灣人,他都是永遠的中國人,不因歷史或政治操弄而被扭曲。話一說完,台下響起如雷掌聲。

但他在受訪時,絕口不提「一國兩區」,還強調自己沒有使用這個說法,只說他是根據中華民國憲法及有關法規,說明目前兩岸的現狀與雙方交流的基礎。

至於國民黨內是否曾討論以「一國兩區」作為兩岸政治定位的依據?他回答,「目前沒有提到這個,還沒多作探討」。他表示,「將來(兩岸)如果要推(政治對話),也會以這個架構往前推進。」

蔣孝嚴指出,據他了解,大陸將延續兩岸和平發展的政策,儘管下一個領導班子即將上台,但政策是持續的。兩岸在文化領域的交流需要去做,也可思考簽署文化協議。

他還說,兩岸關係是有史以來最好的時刻,但不能滿足於現狀;維持現狀並非一成不變,離目標還有一段路要走。台灣海峽不再是造成生離死別的黑水溝,要朝為人民謀福祉方向前進。
