Democracy Based off of the Laws, as Well as the People Too

The dissection of how people mistook DICTATORSHIP for DEMOCRACY here!  Commentaries off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

For these past few months, the politics from the other side of the Pacific developed like the reality shows of Hollywood.  Before January 6th, the most talented scriptwriters may not ever even be able to imagine the climax of how the people took over Capitol Hill.  And even as Biden took office, the sequel to “How American Fell”, the sequel may start filming soon.

In our memories, the American democracy had been a protocol of all democratic governments.  The American can hold their heads up high, tell the world, “Take from our example!”, and the Taiwanese politicians, scholars, or the talk show hosts, whenever they spoke on democracy, the answer is always: take after them!  Popular votes for the presidential elections, and the presidents can only serve two terms, with a bipartisanship legislative body, focusing on human rights.  In this standards, the previous heads of states, Chiang Kai-Shek and Chiang Ching-Kuo would receive “Fs”.

The U.S. is a first democracy that’s written its own constitution, for the over two hundred years since the beginning of the country, it had, continually, progressed!  And yet, there are, so many holes in the system.  First, the U.S. relied on the slaves of Africa, slain the natives (the war with the Indians lasted up to three hundred years on end), and, taking over Mexico, so the WHITES have everything they need.  Undeniable though, the leaderships from the elections, has its pros.  There were, surely, many outstanding heads of the states, even as the voters selected a mediocre president, the three branches were able to, even things out, so the president knew his, limits.

And yet, this system was based off of ruling by the people; with the prerequisite of the man in the seat willing to follow the rules.  But, Trump didn’t buy it, and that was when the world finally realized, that the American democracy WAS, a house of cards, with the rules set up, and those who are law-abiding, following them.  Like the inaugural address of Biden, which he’d stated, “the American democracy is something fragile AND precious!”

In fighting to gain power, the American court systems showed its independent from the legislative and the executive branches, with the mainstream media, all, keeping their guards up.  And yet, Trump was able to, split the States up just seventy-seven days after the election, holding the Republic legislators hostage, spreading the false news of how Biden had cheated in the elections.  He will continue to hold the Republican Party hostage.

The Yale History Professor, Schneider in his “American Abyss”, pointed out, that Trump had used many lies to sway the public, like how those who’d supported Hitler before he came to power.  And, after the truth was known, he worried, that American is on the verge of getting taken over by Fascism.  This sort of an end-of-the world belief, is prevalent, in the European and American media like CNN and the New York Times, a Pulitzer writer published the book, “The Sunset of Democracy” just last year.

Or maybe, a decade from now, we will find, that we’d bore witness to—the result that not everybody will feel glad over the decline of “Pax Americana”.  From how Athens was defeated by Sparta, how many democracies had been, laid, to rest, which showed, how democracy IS not the way to keep a nation going on forever, and so, how can the U.S. be the exception of that?

Looking at the U.S. now, think about Taiwan’s past, as well as its future too.  Thanks to the hard work of the DDP’s blackening, making Chiang Kai-Shek the most infamous evil in our history.  And yet, even the American democracy can become so damaged because of just one man, what reasons have we believe, that if Chiang took the gold after being defeated by China and ran off, or how the two former presidents decided to have the popular votes for presidents, the democracy of this island can continue to date?  Chiang’s rule may NOT be fitting to today’s standards, but, his ruling over the people, had made us into, who we currently, are.

He was the only one who can control the nationalist army, to fight against Mao, he’d also, put everything in education, as well as constructing the country too, based off of the book by the Harvard scholar, Tao’s “Chiang Kai-Shek’ and the Fight for Modern China”, Chiang WAS, the cornerstone of Taiwanese democracy.

“Everything has its time”.  That was, a famous line out of the Bible.  This is so with democracy too, and we can, only, follow this path onward.  The three-legged cat democracy is way more fragile compared to the American democracy, with the politicians, the talk show hosts spreading the wayward thoughts, there’s no balancing of power under Tsai’s rule.  Comparing us to Burma, we are, somehow, a richer society, that found its roots in the authoritarian eras, with the basis of implementing democracy.  Those who are singing those songs of reforms should think: how’s the outlook for the prematurely birthed, Taiwanese, democracy?

And so, this, is still how the government, ruled by Tsai (the president by the “majority”, because the majority of us who are against her rule, we don’t go to the polls?) is headed towards, and she’s still, wearing that HALO of DEMOCRACY (demoCRAZY is more like it!), and ruling this country like she OWNS it, and the people here, are just, way too, FUCKING (so???) blind to see it, and we have only ONE way to go in this country, D-O-W-N!

But hey, look on the bright SIDE, when this god DAMN country finally HIT the ROCK HARD bottom, it then has no other places to go, but U-P!  So yeah, how’s that for dissection…

Trump’s Legacy: Voters Who Reject Democracy & Any Politics But Their Own, by Trip Gabriel

From the New York Times that came with the papers today, on the civilian MOBS occupied the Capitol of the U.S….written by T. Gabriel

The sight of a violent mob inspired by President Donald Trump smashing its way into the Capitol was more than just a shocking spectacle.  It also highlighted one of the most dangerous parts of Trump’s legacy: the4 disbelief in democracy that has metastasized among many of his supporters.

While the turmoil has divided the Republican officials, there are few signs of division among these voters who fervently back Trump.  In interviews earlier this month, they expressed sympathy with what they said were the motives of the mob: to stop the4 counting of Electoral College results in Congress, under the false premise that widespread fraud had deprived the president of reelection.

and here’s a YouTube video on that…

Trump Mob Takes Over U.S. Capitol: Joe Biden, Cardi B. and More React – YouTube

(and yes, the link works!!!)

The adherence of Trump’s base to his groundless claims of a “sacred landslide’ victory and their rejection of a routine constitutional process——a position abetted by 147 congressional Republicans who objected to certifying President-elect Joe Biden’s election—suggest that a core part of the Republican Party is dead=set on rejecting the legitimacy of any politics or party but their own.

In the interviews, Trump supporters adamantly clung to what they called evidence of a fraudulent election, engaged in so-called whataboutism to play down the scenes of destruction in Washington and accused the news media of being overly melodramatic in describing events as a historical inflection.

Since Trump first ran for president, his critics have been predicting that one of his norm-shattering acts would send droves of his supporters fleeing.  It has never happened.

For these voters, the lack of allegiance to democratic values seemed to stem, in part, from the shift among many Republicans to imbibing information from sources that offer propaganda rather than news and facts.

Another likely factor that leads to delegitimizing political opponents among Trump supporters is the scorched-earth attacks on Democratic candidates during elections.

Some members of the president’s base said they would view Biden as illegitimately occupying the Oval Office, a further polarization of Americans after years when some Democrats questioned or denied Trump’s legitimacy.  In the view of many Trump supporters, the president was never given a chance to govern; he was besieged from day one by claims of Russian collusion, fierce obstruction of his priorities and, ultimately, an impeachment.

Wow, all those TRUMP supporters surely ARE, fanatics, like those who’d followed a CULT, following the LEADER, as s/he drive down that sharpened CLIFF somewhere, and that, is what was happening, with these supporters of Trump, still living in the MIRAGE of Trump’s claims of “MAKE AMERICA GREAT again!” well, you know what?  America is NOT great, nor had it, ever been, “great” and it’s because of people like YOU guys (angry MOBS!), who’d destroyed the DEMOCRATIC voting process of AMERICA there!  And that’s still???  Oh yeah my T-A-K-E, those of you won’t don’t like it, yeah like I give a SHIT!

This was what DEMOCRACY in AMERICA looked like, now, maybe???  How the hell should I know when the occupying of the Capitol started, and if it’d, ended yet???

Looking the Other Way, is What Got Us Where We Are Today

Observation of how Trump refused to turn over power, off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

A few years ago, a group of scholars including the Harvard Professor, Cass Sunstein warned, that there might be a fascist U.S. president, the Trump fans called them paranoid freedomists.

At the presidential election last year, the writer, Tony Schwartz who wrote Trump’s, “The Art of the Deal” prophesied, that if Trump lost the election, he will get his supporters and followers to violently turn over the results of the election, the Trump fans laughed and made fun of him for being paranoid freedomist too.

But, these two prophecies made by the “paranoid freedomists” both came true.  In the four year term that Trump’s had, he’d become like a dictator, he’d not drained the swamps of D.C., but the oxygen of the democracy of the U.S.; the Trump fans, in his directing them to, urging them to, took Capitol Hill, and it’d made the United State turned into a banana republic overnight.

Reasonably, the American democracy could NOT allow a FACIST take control of the country that long, nor would it allow for an uprising, a coup d’état of sorts; but, how could Trump do as he pleased for four whole years?  And, how come, the riots, the takeover over of governments of third-world nations is currently, happening, in U.S.?  The New York Times’ columnist, Cruman gave us the answer, “We’d indulged him too long!”

Indulging is the same as quietly consenting, and encouraging, it’s also, the politician’s dope.  In the past, the people put up with Trump’s bad ways: he’d shamed women constantly, the people looked the other way; discriminated against minorities and Muslims, people allowed for it; firing the members of his own cabinets, the people allowed for that too; used the attacks to defame the media press, the people looked the other way; not opening his assets to public records, evading taxes, people of the States had, looked, the other way; privately funding his own campaigns from Russia, people chose to ignore; lied habitually, people didn’t stop him from it; along with, an assortments of other bad behaviors that the American public chose NOT to acknowledge.

Letting Trump slide is equivalent to rationalizing all of his mistakes.  He is a pathological liar, while those who’d allowed him to lie constantly told, that he was telling, an alternative form of the truth; he’d taken the U.S. out of world organizations, those who supported him said it was “to make America great again!”; he’d fired the members of his own cabinet, and obstructed the justice systems, his supporter said he was “bringing the deepest conspiracies of the government out into the open.”

People kept allowing Trump to do what he wanted to, and he’d not gotten punished for it, and, for the followers who saw him as Messiah, they’d, naturally, followed his lead.  The white supremacy groups started, getting bigger locally, QAnon and other extreme right groups kept spreading the conspiracy theories without any solid proof, and, the militia groups that stemmed from these took guns into the state congress of Michigan to protest, even made plans to kidnap the Democratic governor; Krugman described these two incidents in Michigan as a rehearsal for Trump fans’ assault on the Capitol.

Of course, the members of the Republican congress also allowed Trump to become the “Almighty”.  The party system of congress of U.S. worked in the checks and balances, but of late, the Republican became Trump’s private machine for the past four years, at his, disposal; as the impeachment call of Trump was being discussed, all the Republicans voted against his impeachment, and even AS the Trump fans took down Capitol Hill, there were still eight members of the Senate, along with 139 representatives of the House who’d, voted against his impeachment.  As the Vice President, Pence and the majority leader, severed it off with Trump before the votes, but they’d, allowed Trump to do as he pleased for FOUR whole years, they’re, responsible for what is happening now; as for those White House staff members, and members of Trump’s cabinet who’d severed the ties by quitting, they were only, trying, to save themselves before the big ship sank, and, at that last moment, they’d, finally realized that they were on the wrong side, and it’s, already, too late.

Tolerating Trump is what led to this, it’s also what made the fascisms, take over the American democracy, “if you think after Biden took office at the White House, all those rioters would vanish, then, you must be, delusional!”, that, is what Krugman is most worried about, “Then, what can we do?  It’s time, to stop those, fascists, stop, tolerating them now!”, this was the summation of Krugman’s observation over the last four years as Trump acted as the president of the U.S.; and to the rest of the democracies in the world, the falling, the destruction of American democracy showed, “if this can happen in the U.S., it can happen, anywhere else too!”

And, absolute power equals absolute abuse, is what this showed, now that Trump’s been voted out of the office, he didn’t want to leave, and so, he’d, used the power of the masses, to do his bidding for him, and, as the rioters, take over Capitol Hill, the Congress too, U.S. is no longer, a democracy, because for the PAST four years, the people allowed a FACIST DICTATOR (like Mussolini, or Hirohito) to rule them, and now, this FACIST DICTATOR got a sweet taste of what power gave to him, of course he wasn’t, going to, let it go that easily…

Another Beast, Hungry for Power

Commentaries on how too much power given to the political party in power right now, the DDP, from the Front Page Sections, translated…

The Examination Department posted its “Human Rights Committee Advocates” legislation drafts, and the head recruit of DDP, Ke was angered by the draft of the legislature, believed that it’s the minority making a huge mess for the majority of the legislators.  Ke’s reason being: the ten members of the human rights committee are all members of the legislature, there’s no need to add a new amendment for these ten people, that their duties and rights should be written in the general legislations.

And, whether or not Ke has the right to object to this, he had a right reason, to go off.  The human rights committee is NOT some complex, or larger-scale system, it only consisted of just TEN members, who are a part of the examination committee, but they’d, decided, to give themselves a new set of rules to abide by, do they want to make more trouble for the legislature?

Yet, the examination department’s appetite was too huge, and, they’d asked the committee for the right to interpret the legislation as they wish to, and, expected the government facilities, the local branches to explain what they checked for everything that they’re, checking.  The former was criticized by the legislative department as “finding a way around the written law”; the latter, breaching of the five basic rights.  Including how this rule would allow the government sectors to “dip” their hands into the privately owned facilities, this left many doubts.

everyone who disagrees, gets the BARRELS! Clip Art found online

Simply stated, all of these committee members, used the claims of “human rights”, believed that they have the power to go and check any and everything, that nobody can object, can stop them from doing so.  The problem being, Taiwan is a country of law, and, we already, have separate laws for everything regarding the rights of the citizens already, do we, really, need another “emperor” unit to oversee the areas of human rights?  If this “emperor” unit believed itself to be the supreme law of the land, then, the human rights of the Taiwanese citizens may be damaged even more, instead of, being protected.

And now, the systems operating independently of party politics are reduced, and lacked the faith from the general public, we do NOT need one more beast of power, wearing the mask of “human rights”.

And so, this, is how the DDP is using ITS power now, to dip into everything, in the name of the citizens’ rights, they’re actually, enslaving the people here, there’s now, only the GREEN (DDP-supportive) T.V. stations on T.V., and the newspaper media would be next, and, all of those papers that don’t agree with the legislations passed by the DDP, will get, taken off the store shelves too I’m sure, and, this is WAY, WAY, WAY worse than COMMUNIST rule!  And the people can’t do ANYTHING about it…

Is Democracy Totally, on the, Collapse in the World?

Commentaries about how democracy is actually, demoCRAZY here, off of the Front Page Sections, translated…

The top two headlines; from a day ago, all the major newspapers are reporting on how the former president, Lee, “Mr. Democracy” passed; the following day, almost all the major papers are reporting on how the five former and current legislators had, taken the bribes.  Thirty years ago, the former president, Lee in order to let the more experienced representative to take his place, to reform the legislatures, he’d become noted as “Mr. Democracy”.  But, thirty years after the development of this democracy, the key lawmakers of the major parties were found to have taken the bribes from the enterprises, and this showed, how democracy doesn’t mean getting the citizens in directly voting for the president, it’d clearly, shown us, that it’s, too difficult a task, for the politics of democracy to head down the right tracks.

Four years ago, after Trump was elected as president, his methods of ruling the country, using his awful, wayward speeches and behaviors, tearing America apart, it’d made people started doubting democracy.  Taiwan followed closely behind too, these few elected representatives of the people, are a verification of, just that.

Actually, there’s, the corruptive characteristics of democracy.  Democracy is based off of majority ruling.  But, everybody neglected to note: all the major decisions, all involved the assignments of benefits; and, there is, a “cost of the deal” in every single decision.  What is meant by “cost of the deal” is how we needed to, compromise, in order, to reach an agreement; and the more people are involved, the bigger space we’ll need, and, as the number of participants increased to hundreds, thousands, even, millions, it would be next to impossible, to find a place to have all the people gather, let alone, having these participants find a time they’re all, available, and how they’re to, reach, an agreement on everything it’s even, harder still.  And the high price that we’re paying, is, the cost of a democratic, government.

And based off of this, democracy happens, at too high a cost, and yet, people are still pursuing it, blindly, thinking that if they cast a vote, then, their governments are, democratic, without realizing, those lawmakers are, manipulating the masses, by using the ambiguous wordings, to confuse the voters (like this last election I voted in, with the various issues of same-sex marriages, sex ed in the elementary years, etc., etc., etc.), and, this is, a test of the citizens ability to, think critically, but, mostly, when it comes to the votes, we let our emotions lead the way, instead of our heads, and that is precisely why, the world is, headed toward H-E-L-L!!!
