And If You Do Not Help... Then To Hell With You

“When [Ma] visited farming villages during his presidential campaign, he was given a warm welcome and he received farmers’ votes,” Taiwan Rural Front spokeswoman Tsai Pei-hui (蔡培慧) said. “Now that the farmers have come knocking on his door to voice their opposition to the government forcibly taking their land, the president refuses to see them.”
Naturally. The farmers are going about their protest in entirely the wrong way, on the misunderstanding that a democratically elected government exists to serve the people. Reality however, has that relationship arranged quite the other way around. Those farmers have no business at all appealing to the President to "care" about them - only contemptible serfs talk like that. They should take a leaf out of this guy's book.
