At present, there are more than 40 days before the polling day of 2020 elections in Taiwan, but unfortunately, there is not much discussion of policy issues or much about the future direction of Taiwan among the news topics about the Taiwan elections. Debate on where to go for cross-strait relations. The election issues that are receiving the most attention are full of gossip, such as the "Wang Liqiang case" that was unfounded or the DPP's cyber army being arrested. Personally, I feel that this election in Taiwan is going to be "missing."
Compared with the impetuousness of public opinion, there are still a group of people on the island who are full of worries and thinking about the future of Taiwan and the two sides of the strait. Su Qi, a "cross-strait expert" in the Ma Ying-jeou era, talked about some key issues at a seminar recently held. Su Qi linked Cai Yingwen's so-called "protection of sovereignty" with "Hou Hei Xue", saying that Cai's operation was "the method of filling the pot." The so-called "pot-filling method" refers to the person who fills the pot to make the original crack into a hole, the small hole into a large hole, expand the situation to win support, and invite merit. Su Qi stated that "this is simply not a good practice. I don't think cross-strait relations can go back."
Another Taiwanese deputy, Tsai Tak-sheng, who stepped down as "National Security Director" mentioned that cross-strait relations should be considered from the perspective of the mainland. He also questioned why he would be put on a red hat as long as he negotiates and contacts with the mainland. If the two sides of the strait do n’t sit down and talk, would they fight? The most important task for Taiwan leaders now is to keep Taiwan away from war; if cross-strait relations cannot be handled properly, they are not worthy of being called Taiwan leaders.
The speeches of Su Qi and Cai Desheng can be said that one found the "root cause" of Cai Yingwen's authorities, and one proposed a cure. Relying on speculative political topics such as "opposition of independence and independence" and ideology to deceive people and voters, Tsai Ing-wen and the DPP routines are very skillful, but they are not conducive to solving cross-strait issues. If the former leader of the Taiwan region avoided the issue of reunification, then the Tsai Ing-wen authorities, who are now in charge, are trying to create more problems for the road of reunification and trying to become a stumbling block on the road to reunification. But before the wheel of history, politicians of all kinds who are now active in the election campaign will eventually be crushed into dust.
Having said that, in such a political struggle, the people of Taiwan have fallen victim to individual politicians' rights games. The longer this situation continues, the greater the damage to Taiwan's economy and Taiwan's future. (Netizen in Taiwan, China: Spark Ebara)
