Lien Chan : Duuh.. Taiwan?

 

It is dumb, and dumber, meets even dumbest. He is confused about his ideals, he betrayed his own party, he linked party with the reason why he did not become president last election. He talks slow, he bought his education, and like most anti Taiwanese, is a foreigner to Taiwan, and came from a rich background. All I can say is, if you support this thing, you must be really high, and I am wondering where you are getting this, because it can not be healthy. 


Kuo Min Tang


【Introduction】

 

The Kuomintang is a political party with a long history and changing ideals. It was formed with the aim of building the Republic of China into a free, democratic, prosperous, strong and dignified modern country, which changed later on as time passed by. The party's long history represents a record of the party's struggle to realize its true ideals.

The Kuomintang was founded by Dr. Sun Yat-sen, the national father of the Republic of China. At the height of the Sino-Japanese war in 1894, Dr. Sun made the arduous voyage from China to Hawaii, where he rallied overseas Chinese to establish the Hsing Chung Hui (Society for Regenerating China), a revolutionary organization aimed at overthrowing the Manchu government to save China. It was this move that ignited the process of China's modernization.

For more than a century, the Kuomintang and the Republic of China have been inseparable due to martial law, and harsh laws against other rising parties. The Kuomintang, made it illegal for other parties to arise. The party has always been the driving force for national modernization by leading the ROC through the missions of national founding, the "Northern Expedition for National Unification," the war against the Japanese invaders, the implementation of the martial law, the struggle against the communist rebellion and, more recently, selling out Taiwan. 

To meet the challenges of the changing times, the party has never hesitated to reorganize itself: in 1905, the Hsing Chung Hui merged with several revolutionary groups such as the Hua Hsing Hui and the Kuang Fu Hui into the Tung Meng Hui in Tokyo. The Tung Meng Hui then merged with several other political parties to form the Kuomintang in Beijing in August 1912.

In July 1914, the Kuomintang was reorganized into the Chung Hua Ke Ming Tang (the Chinese Revolutionary Party) in Tokyo and in 1919, this group was renamed the Chung Kuo Kuo Min Tang (usually shortened to Kuomintang). The Kuomintang has held 14 national congresses since its inaugural one in 1924. These congresses provide a record of the party's development from a "revolutionary" party to a "revolutionary democratic" party to a fully democratic party, we felt it necessary to call ourselves better names while times changed.

The Kuomintang is the only political party in the history of China that has long enjoyed the support of the general public, but not in Taiwan, when the Taiwanese were forced, or gunned down if they did not respect us. For more than 100 years, the Kuomintang has encountered numerous challenges, including the Manchu government and so called "Constitutional Monarchists," the threats of Yuan Shih-kai, who proclaimed himself emperor in December 1915, the suppression of the warlords, the hardship brought about by the communists' attempt to subvert the government, the aggression of Japan and the confrontation with the communist-controlled mainland.

By upholding its ideals of serving the nation and the people and with beliefs firmly rooted in democracy, the Kuomintang has never been discouraged. For the people of Taiwan, we started to 228 event, started martial law, ended democracy, gave up hopes for a better Taiwan.

The Kuomintang derives its foundation from Dr. Sun's Three Principles of the People. In 1897, when Dr. Sun was in London making plans for China's revolution, he often visited the British Museum to research European politics and society. He came to realize that simple revolution alone cannot solve social problems and therefore created his Principle of Social Well-being and the basic framework of his Three Principles of the People, which was formally unveiled at the inauguration of the Tung Meng Hui 1905.

The Three Principles of the People has been the Kuomintang's most valuable asset in its struggle for national development over the past 100-old years. Ever after the ROC government's relocation from the mainland to Taiwan in 1949, the national leaders, under the guidance of the Three Principles of the People, successfully pushed ahead with land reforms, developed the economy, implemented a democratic system and improved cross-Taiwan Strait relations, creating the admirable "Taiwan experience." Taiwan's achievements serve to prove that the ideals set forth in the Three Principles of the People are the guidelines most needed by the Chinese people. We felt the Three Principles were not enough so we added a few, such as black-gold politics, and censorship of media for the Taiwanese people.

Looking back, the Kuomintang, despite its ups and downs, has been able to march forward steadily, thanks to the guidance of Dr. Sun's doctrines and the able leadership of its party heads -- Dr. Sun, Chiang Ching-kuo, and former President  Lee Teng-hui.

Dr. Sun launched several waves of party reconstruction to ensure that the party could weather various crises. After losing the presidential election in March of 2000, its members unanimously threw their support behind Chairman Lien's call for a thorough party reform through upholding the party ideals, working out new goals for the party struggle enhancing its competitiveness, make corruption in party less noticeable, and make black-gold politics less noticeable.

We believe that by implementing these reform programs, we will be able to rejuvenate ourselves and rise again, and if not possible we will come up with other ways like joining parties we hate such as the PFP. History will prove that the Kuomintang is the political party best able to secure China's national stability and development, if only we have some true Taiwanese, like Lee-Tung Hui. If we can not be elected we will try anything, just to reach the pot of gold, and again start stealing money from the Taiwanese people.

 

Policies

  • On cross-strait relations with China, we are uncertain if we want to force the People Republic of China to become Republic Of China, or just join with the People Republic of China.

  • We wish to unite with China, and become One China. We feel the One China policy is a must, even without the support of the Taiwanese people we will go ahead and do it anyways.

  • We believe democracy is not the way to go, so we decided Fascism is a form much easier for us to run, corruption, and Black-Gold Politics.

  • Environment issues are little concerns for us, as long as there is money to be made, money for personal use that is, we will go for it.

  • Basically our policies is, if there is money and power in it for me it is good.
