Letters: Suggestions please

Fighting in the legislature, permanently blocked bills, allegations of corruption at every turn, enough U-turns to leave us feeling dizzy, and now lawmakers resorting to hurling bags filled with human feces. The political situation in Taiwan is a mess. It might be funny, were it not for the fact that the country is being damaged by our politicians’ antics.

For as long as I’ve been in Taiwan, I’ve read editorials and letters either suggesting how politicians might do their jobs better, or angrily berating their seeming lack of responsibility. It would appear, however, that nothing is changing.

So my question is: What can we, the people of Taiwan, do to improve this country’s political climate?

I ask anyone to please write in and put forward their thoughts and ideas.
