I love this country because I love the people here, and this has got nothing to do with the land or the government of the day. Any government that wants to gain the love and respect of the people living here must first not build its own offices more luxuriously than it builds schools. Secondly, it must not let the cars carrying its officials affect public transportation. Thirdly, it must not let fleeing corrupt officials take cash out of this country that amounts to over 600RMB per resident. Lastly, common folk shouldn’t be asked to donate money when they see the doctors while they themselves have virtually limitless medical expenses.
