    Taiwan is an independent country. China has no right legally, or morally, to Taiwan. The people of Taiwan want no part of China. (if you allowed a free vote with no Chinese intimidation tactics)

    Interestingly letting Taiwanese go to the Mainland in the late 1980's resulted in an increase in support for independence as people saw for themselves that the KMT propaganda of the time was BS, and that Taiwan society was actually quite different. Now Chinese visiting Taiwan are seeing the same thing.

    China is only using a racist view of "Chineseness" to make its claim, something that we should abhor ... It would be like arguing that Canada and the US should be one country because they both have lots of white people.

    Taiwanese society has made remarkable progress since the KMT dictatorship finally ended. Unfortunately Chinese society has yet to make similar advances.

    There's room at the top they're telling you still But first you must learn how to smile as you kill If you want to be like the folks on the hill
