Is Taiwan a part of China today? No. Do the Taiwanese pay taxes to China? No.
They are seperate. Seperatists. Like England and the current U.S.
Like the Ukraine from the U.S.S.R.
Most people in Taiwan see themselves as Seperate from china and that has been increasing.
wikipedia taiwanese seperatism
[align=center]Taiwanese national identity is often posed as either an exclusive Taiwanese identity separate from Chinese national identity, or a
Taiwanese identity within a pan-Chinese national identity. Since democratization, there has been an increase in those identifying exclusively as
Taiwanese, with those identifying as Taiwanese and Chinese nationals have fallen and those exclusively identifying as Chinese nationals have almost
vanished. National Chengchi University has conducted annual polls on national identity since 1991. In 1991, 17.6% of respondents identified as
Taiwanese (臺灣人) only, 25.5% as Chinese (中國人) only, 46.4% as both, and 10.5% declining to state. In 2000, the numbers were 36.9% Taiwanese,
12.5% Chinese, 44.1% both and 6.5% declining. In 2008, 48.4% identified as Taiwanese, 4.0% as Chinese, 43.1% as both, and 4.5% declining. By 2016,
58.2% identified as Taiwanese, 3.4% as Chinese, 34.3% as both, and 4.1% declining. In 2020, 64.3% identified as Taiwanese, 2.6% as Chinese, 29.9% as
both, and 3.2% declining. Likewise, in a 2002 poll by the Democratic Progressive Party, over 50% of the respondents considered themselves
"Taiwanese" only, up from less than 20% in 1991 (Dreyer 2003). Polls conducted by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA) in 2001 found that 70% of
Taiwanese would support a name change of the country to Taiwan if the island could no longer be referred to as the Republic of China. The
discrepancy in identity becomes larger when polls only give the two options of "Taiwanese" versus "Chinese". In June 2008, a TVBS poll found that 68%
of the respondents identify themselves as "Taiwanese" while 18% would call themselves "Chinese". In 2015, a poll conducted by the Taiwan
Braintrust showed that about 90 percent of the population would identify themselves as Taiwanese rather than Chinese.[/align]
Also I want to apologise to you RussianTroll as I am currently drunk and perhaps not thinking as clearly as usual. Though I don’t think that my
points are invalid atm.
