Taiwanese impressions of China

Survey says...

This is the Taiwan Republic

A DPP survey released December 25, 2008 presents a picture of Taiwan that differs greatly from the one painted by the memes that pro-China media and other journos often present. Below is a CNA article on the subject [translations mine]:
綠營:五成六民眾認為兩岸不宜黨對黨協商

Green camp: 56% of the public think cross-strait talks should not be conducted on a "party-to-party" basis


民主進步黨民調中心主任陳俊麟今天指出,民進黨最新民調顯示,65.8%民眾認為政府尚未做好開放兩岸政策的配套措施;55.8%的民眾認為兩岸政策由黨對黨方式共同協商並不適當。

Chen Chun-lin (陳俊麟), director of the DPP's Public Opinion Survey Center, says today that a poll shows that 65.8% of respondents feel that the government has not done a good job with cross-strait policy so far. 55.8% feel that conducting cross-strait negotiations on a party-to-party basis is inappropriate.

民進黨中央公布「台灣民眾的中國印象」民調,陳俊麟做以上表示。

Announcing the results of a poll titled "The Taiwanese public's impressions of China," Chen Chun-lin had this to say.

民調顯示,民眾對於台灣與中國的關係,認為是「同一個國家」的比例只有2.7%,「同一個民族」為36.4%,「同一個文化」為28.1%,「完全沒關係」為28.4%。

On the question of the relationship between Taiwan and China, only 2.7% consider the two territories to be "one country." 36.4% feel that the people of Taiwan and China are the "same ethnicity." 28.1% believe the people on the two sides of the Taiwan Strait share a "common culture." 28.4% say "there is no relationship whatsoever."

此外,民眾對於中國的印象,認為「友善的」比例為32.2%,「敵意的」為56.8%;「民主的」比例為8.9%,「專制的」比例為85.1%。

Furthermore, 32.2% consider China to be "friendly," while 56.8% feel that it is "hostile" towards Taiwan. 8.9% consider China to be a "democracy" while 85.1% think of China as a "dictatorship."

這份民調調查日期為12月23日至24日,完成數為1105人,抽樣誤差約為正負3.0%;主要針對20歲以上具有投票權的公民,以電話號碼隨機抽樣。

The poll was conducted on December 23 - 24 with a total of 1,105 respondents. The margin of error is plus or minus about 3.0%. The polling sample was gathered using random phone numbers and targeted citizens over the age of 20 who have the right to vote.
To summarize, a majority of Taiwanese people see Taiwan and China as two separate countries and consider themselves as having a different culture and ethnicity from the people across the Strait. If you, too, want to be able to see through the bullshit about China's "goodwill" or the so-called "panda-mania," just remember the missiles.

1,400 missiles plus 2 pandas still equals hatred!
1,400 missiles... plus 2 pandas... equals... "goodwill"?

Something that is known by the great majority of Taiwanese

Serious power struggle among KMT elite has been going on for a long time, and now KMT can no longer conceal it. In this report, Ma has sent people to ask Lien (the former KTM president) NOT to get involved in the decision making of cross-straight negotiations:

兩岸事務 馬營盼連勿再插手


This request is totally ignored by Lien. His people responded with:

「這麼重要的事情,我不敢向連戰報告」
"It is too critical, I dare not to report that to Lien."


No, I don't think I translate it wrong. That's what it says.

Ma Ying-jeou is losing the grip and becoming an empty shell when both Lian and the current KMT President Wu are trying to grab power.

It seems that in the matter of critical cross-straight issues, KMT's decision making circle has already split into pieces.

Isn't that what the Communist China is aiming for ?
