The Taiwan Government asks for the support and
collaboration of the United States government in
creating a Constitutional government built upon
its historical relationship with the people of Taiwan:
1. Based on Article 2 of the Treaty of Peace with Japan, signed at the city of San Francisco in the United States of America on September 8, 1951, Japan has renounced all right, title and claim to Taiwan (Formosa) and Penghu (the Pescadores) Islands. The treaty between Japan and the Allied powers, allowed for the United States to create a new and independent government in Taiwan.
2. According to Chapter 7, Article 23, Section A of the Treaty of Peace with Japan, the United States, as the principal occupying power, is the official legal guardian of Taiwan. The United States government has allowed the current government in Taiwan, the ROC (Republic of China) to rule based upon the ROC Constitution which was established in 1946 in Nanjing China without the consultation of the Taiwanese people. Under the right of self-determination, as established in the Mayflower Compact, the Taiwan Government believes that the people of Taiwan have the right to establish a Constitution under the supervision of the United States which will be approved by a free and fair vote of the people of Taiwan.
3. The Taiwan Relation Act, January 1, 1979 was implemented by the United States Congress in order to help maintain peace, security, and stability in the Western Pacific; and to promote the foreign policy of the United States by authorizing the continuation of commercial, cultural, and other relations between the people of the United States and the people on Taiwan. Among the Acts objectives was the preservation and enhancement of the human rights of all the people on Taiwan.
4. After World War II, the United States government was instrumental in creating a new Constitutional government for the people of Japan.
The current administrative government of the ROC has not fulfilled the ideals of The Taiwan Relations Act. The ROC Constitution has created an environment where the President of the ROC enjoys excessive power over both the Legislature and Judiciary branches of government. This has resulted in Human Rights violations and an increased connectedness to the PRC (People’s Republic of China), both of which are jeopardizing the security of East Asia. It is for these reasons that The Taiwan Government asks for the support of the United States of America in creating a new Taiwan Government Constitution in order to protect the people of Taiwan and maintain the security of East Asia.
