The Sacred Pig was on the news today showing off his "street dancing" moves. Yes, popping and locking for the cameras! I almost choked on my oatmeal. Fresh and funky! How is 柯P gonna respond to that? Better start working on his robot....

Many politicians who went through an assassination attempt and survived believe that the higher power wants them to live on to do something great, and they adopt a hard line approach to achieve their goals. Maybe that's what prompted him to run in the first place.


A KMT leader with a self of mission and destiny and a belief in himself as a demi-god to the people. Nothing could go wrong there for Taiwan, could it?
“Everywhere else in the world is also really old” said Prof. Liu, a renowned historian at Beijing University. “We always learn that China has 5000 years of cultural heritage, and that therefore we are very special. It appears that other places also have some of this heritage stuff. And are also old. Like, really old.”

The higher power mentioned by hansioux is Lien's Dad. Enough said.

I think Chu will run in 2016,and yes I'm aware of the fact that he's gonna run for the mayor this year,but this kind of shit happens all the time in Taiwan.The politicians promised something(that they'd stay in office for 4 years in this case),and never meant it.

Btw you guys are pretty optimistic.I'm a native Taiwanese and at this rate,considering how PRC-butt-licking this administration has been,I'm not even 100% sure that there'd be a president election in 2016,let alone 2020.

See... This is nuts. There will be free and fair elections in 2016, 2020, 2024, and on. I am completely and absolutely confident in that.

Most of the world doesn't care or know about Taiwan or thinks it's part of China already.

Also to say China is worried aboutits international rep was valid 10 years ago but is increasingly hard to argue. Combine the aggression toward Japan and ASEAN countries wih a massive state directed drive to buying influence with western media (I have seen this up.close) and the weird purging going on right now withim China and the relevant change in the international order to consider is China's. If Taiwan is a different place from 1949 then you can't ignore that China is a diferent place from even 2005.


I guess I'll reply in the thread GingerMan referred to.

Is there a comprehensive list of policies?
I'd support anyone who would take care of that third world sewage system in Taipei.
However all i heard is Lien's plan to relocate City Hall and Ko's great idea to subsidies
elevator construction to help the elderly living in (typically) shit buildings. :ohreally:

Both Taipei and New Taipei have 100% sewage connection rates. What is third world about it?

Lien's policies are here: http://taipeihope.tw/issue/issue-list.html
