Taiwan is already free, but this definitely a nice thumb in China's eye.

I just wonder what the worlds favorite President for Life will do to show his displeasure at people being allowed to democratically elect their own leaders. :P

"It was the emergence of Taiwan's relationship with China as the central issue in this campaign that allowed her to revive her flagging fortunes.

And in her victory there is a certain political irony.

Beijing's rigid, authoritarian vision of a Greater China, united on its terms, has been wholeheartedly rejected in the one place actually given the opportunity to vote on the concept.

And had the Communist Party not turned up the pressure on Taiwan, had its approach to the crisis in Hong Kong been subtler, the path to victory for a candidate it wanted so much to thwart may have been much less certain.

After the result was announced I asked Tsai Ing-wen whether she had the Chinese President Xi Jinping to thank for her victory.

She smiled."

Han Kuo-yo had favoured closer ties with China


The Taiwanese could have given their freedom up this election. They chose not to.

Yes, She definitely owes the Chinese President a dinner or at least a drink.

In her victory speech, Ms Tsai told China to abandon its threat to take back the island by force.
TRANSLATION: Ms Tsai told the Taiwanese that she is selling them back to the Chinese. No need to fire a single shot!!!

The Taiwanese looked at Hong Kong and they realized the minute the Hong Kong flag was hauled down in 1997 and the red banner was raised in spite of all the promises it was only going to be a matter of time before the full repression that goes on in the mainland will become their daily life.

The Taiwanese realize that if the day comes they haul down the flag of the Chinese Republic and raise the red banner exactly the same thing will happen to them.

As Pope John Paul II put it in Poland, you can't compromise with Communism, your only option is to oppose it or it will swallow you whole.
