An Open Letter to Taiwanese Americans:
My Fellow Countrymen:
In the coming November election, I know many of you will be voting for President Donald Trump, because many of my relatives are doing exactly that, and I honestly cannot blame them, since I have toyed with such ideas myself.
President Donald Trump is the most anti-Communist China President (and by extention - Pro-Taiwan) POTUS in recent memory. He became the first POTUS to receive congratulatory phone calls from a sitting Taiwanese President in 40 years, under this administration, Taiwan had the opportunity to host several high ranking officials from the US, includes Health Secretary and State Under Secretary, and I also understand, under this administration Taiwan was able to get the much needed upgrades in her military arsenal, including F16 Viper, M1 Abram tank to say a few.
As a person of Taiwanese ancestry, I understand perfectly how much we live under constant nightmare of military and nationalistic bullying from the Communist China across the Taiwan strait, the fear and helplessness are all too real, especially when Taiwan is the only advanced sovereign state not recognized by the United Nation. Viewing in that light, the current administration feels like a friend beating up a high school bully for us. In short, in our electoral calculus, China looms large, and I understand that.
Before you cast your sacred vote, I’d like you to do an exercise, it will only take a few seconds, or maybe a few minutes. I’d like you to take a deep breath, sip on a cup of tea, and ask yourself one question: If it’s not for Taiwan, would you vote for President Donald Trump? And then, a follow up question, why?
If your answer is yes, then congratulations, your conscience is clear, you may stop reading as of this point, and live your lives, I’m sorry to have wasted your time. But if your answer is no, Taiwan is the only reason why you are voting Republican, then, we need to talk:
The reason we are voting in this election at all, is because we are an citizens of the United States of America, and if you are like me, you too, have sworn an oath allegiance to this country and uphold the United States Constitution when you received your naturalization certificate, so, shouldn’t we consider American’s interests before our birthplace or even our parents’ birthplace? Can the United States of America, with the current trajectory, survive another four years under the current administration? And what will this country become in four years under the current administration? I know we care about Taiwan, I know we hate the Communist China, but I am asking, what about America? Who should take political responsibility for the seven million confirmed cases and two hundred thousands of our fellow Americans already in their graves?
Of course, we should all vote our consciences, but I will not abandon Universal Healthcare, Competent leadership, fairness and social justice, just because this administration sold some weapons to Taiwan, because that would be betraying who I am, I am not going to do that, and I think neither should you.
