It looks like we have a winner in the White House, Joe Biden!
And the biggest loser? No, it's not Donald Trump; it's not even Nancy Pelosi; in fact, no matter what happened to the U.S. election, Americans have always won and are still winners of the world.
The losers are us, people in Taiwan, Hong Kong, who cheered for the Western democracy, freedom to choose, and believed in the Western value of justice, human rights, and love, only to be dumped from the bus and left to die at the end!
The West has become soft, weak, and collide in their delusions.
The Western value triumphed in the past hundred years, not because of its belief, but because of its strength.
They did not win the wars through diplomatic efforts. It's the blood of millions of allies soldiers that defeated Hitler and Nazi German.
Japan did not negotiate a peaceful deal; instead, they surrendered after two atomic bombs.
And now, liberalism has completed consumed Western democracy and politics.
The dreamers in the left-wing parties, from Canada to the U.S., truly believed that they could change the world with love and peace!
Unfortunately, the reality is cruel, and freedom was never free.
Without the strong arms, the courageous soldiers, the bravery of millions of people who have served their countries, and to fight, the Western nations would never have this peace and freedom now.
The Western value and cultures that I have grown up with have now declined to a mere slogan!
Western men have become spineless and blind. They forgot the consequence that when you stop fighting, Vietnam became a communist hell, Russian continues to oppress LGBTQ and all human rights advocates, and China….
After the USA's fail diplomacy, to naively think they could "change" the Communist leaders with talks, with Hollywood movies and money….only to make China's Communist party even stronger!
And the consequence? China has signally controlled the so-called world organizations, from U.N. to WTO, to WHO…etc.
And the result? The global pandemic that could have been avoided if the world is willing to listen to a warning from a small island named Taiwan, but yet, the West chose to ignore.
This is not just a matter of other nations' issues.
When West still can stop the evil but choose to ignore,
they too will pay for the price, heavily!
And yet, that is what happened!
Young western people nowadays do not know anything about the world.
They chanted their slogans, "Black Lives Matter," while playing basketballs and wearing shoes made in China's sweat factories.
"Social Justice and Equal Pay" while using their favorite iPhone also cheaply made in China's same sweat factory conditions.
The truth is, China owns your coffee (Starbucks), your cultures (Disney, Netflix, and all Hollywood), your cars (GM, Ford, Tesla...etc.), your airplanes (Boeings), your medical supplies (remembered the panic from the shortage of masks & PPE?)
China owns your government (the biggest U.S Government debt holder).
Yes, it's already a fact that China owns the West, but now, China also owns your spirit!
Sometimes I wonder, if the liberalism in the West has gone too far, all the P.C. culture, all the inclusiveness, all the gender equality, to a result that men don't even know if they are men or women.
And the end?
My country, Canada, is governed by a drama teacher instead of a former airforce pilot.
The U.S. has elected a brittle older man, who couldn't even remember things, and now we suppose to count our faith in him as the Commander in Chief, for the potential war in the Far East?
"Yeah, but Trump is an asshole and a big bully!"
Yes, Donald Trump might be a bully, and?
China is a bigger bully, and when a bully beat you, there is no mommy, daddy, or teacher to cry to. This is the real world.
This is war.
Sometimes, you have to fight a bully by becoming a bigger bully!
The election has consequences and the will of the majority triumphs.
After all, this is the result!
I despair about the future now.
My hometown, my parents, my siblings, and all the loved ones still live in Taiwan.
The countdown has started, the war is very much likely to happen in the next four years, now that we do not have Trump in the office to fight.
After all, it's our Taiwanese people's war to fight.
The U.S has no obligation to join, and now with Biden, they would certainly go back to a comfortable position of doing nothing!
When the time comes, I will remember the beautiful life experience that Canada has given me throughout my youth; the value of freedom, democracy, and belief.
Now I'm a grown man, and I must protect, serve, and die for what I have believed.
Thank you, Mr. Trump, for what you have stood for and your support for us Taiwanese people.
Thank you, Senator Ted Cruz, Tim Cotton, and the Republican party, who have always fought for human rights, from Lincoln to Trump.
Let's keep up the spirit!
