:-o The Tide Is Turning

Several news and article on the 雲林 county legislator re-election and referendum of 澎湖 county gambling legalization.  The DPP candidate 劉建國 (nice name, by the way) won the 雲林 county election, and legalizing gambling referendum did not pass (and it did not pass despite the fact that it is a ‘fair’ vote, unlike the previous national referendum where you need more than 75% of the eligible voters to vote in order to pass anything).  This 2 incidents are big loses to the Ma’s KMT and an indication that the tide is turning, because DPP won one more seat in the legislature, and legalizing gambling in 澎湖 was one of Ma’s major policy that was greatly advocated during election.

Ma is no longer the political star, and KMT is losing ground big times.  However, could this be the turning point?  It is still a bit too early to tell.   I would opt to remain conservative in my expectation.  However, this is certainly a good sign that shows some Taiwanese finally starts to sense the deceitful nature of Ma.
