I think you just twisted the basic fact. It is you want to betray Mainland and cause the hostility between mainland and taiwan. Before 1995, almost everything looks great. Since I was a kid, I was educated as “brothers and sisters in the island”, the island is “best island, or treasure island of Chinese”, since I was in mid school, I was educated as brothers and sister now come back to invest to help us. I was adimring and loving you people and most of us did. However, things become ugly, such ugly once you want to betray this country, most important, I think that is reason I hate you “son * of * bi*” too much is you guys keep trying to make connection with Japs, which rapped China so hard and so pain in not-long ago. Now you naively think once taian get independence, you will not become the “enemy”? The other thing, go to take look at the map, you will understand how important taiwan geograhically important to China or Chinese enemy. Onec Taiwan officially get independent, the door for China to revive basically closed forever, that alone can make you the enemy of China forever. So, please donot twist the basic reason and consequences.

This post makes it much easier to see. "Chicom CCP" under your strict definitions would mean "Chinese Communist Chinese Communist Party", which doesn't make sense. Taking in context, we realize that ChiCom is merely used as a derogatory term for ALL Chinese.
I think some words that start off unoffending,

Actually, there was the Communist party and the Nationalist Party, the Kuo Min Tang, or KMT. Ask anyone who lived through the fifties, sixties, seventies and eighties, the KMT weren't democratic at all. Just like the other rock (RoK) was never democratic. But it is now. As is South Korea.
Mainland China, on the other hand, has never been democratic. Not in the days of Sun Yat Sen and not now.
And Chicom is/was used to refer to all mainland Chinese to differentiate them from Taiwanese Chinese. Back in the days when US one-China policy recognised the KMT and the RoC, not the CCP and the PRC.
If China had a population of half a billion in 1949 why did it take until the eighties to pass a billion? If I remember the docos on the beginning of the one-child policy correctly the average family had six children. If every new generation was producing more than twice its own number...
Are these figures incorrect or are my maths and memory a little hazy? (I'll admit population growth ain't my thing!)

Personally, I think China has no right to "unite" with Taiwan; Taiwan was NOT part of China. There was the Communist Party and the Democratic Party. The Democratic Party lost and retreated to Taiwan. The Communists took over control of China. There is nothing that says the Taiwanese people or Taiwan belongs to China, except the Communist Party, which took over China.
But regardless, even if Taiwan WAS a part of China, the Taiwanese people have been governing themselves long enough and China has a gov't that drove over its own people in tanks and is very manipulative of its press and people; and lies, and jeez, talk about nationalism over there.
I hope Taiwan can fend off China (which right now they could invasion-wise, but not in about 5-10 years alone).
And yeah I made another account, no, not because people ignored me; I actually do not even know how many have or did. If they did though, they just got tired of the truth in a lot cases. I made another account because I had to restart my computer which logged me off of my other account. I tried to log back on, but something went wrong and it wouldn't let me. I decided to just make another account instead.
