A Party Member for 41 Years: "I've Been So Badly Deceived"
(Clearwisdom.net) As my wife had been illegally arrested for practicing Falun Dafa, I often had fast food at the roadside stalls. I took these opportunities to clarify the truth about Falun Dafa to people.
One day in October, when I was having dinner, an old man sat beside me. After chatting with me for a while, he said, "Young man, in the past I believed firmly in the ruling party. I was a party member for forty-one years. Only now have I found out that I had been so badly deceived."
He said, "Firstly, the party had deceived the citizens of the whole country. There are a lot of corrupt officials. When the home of the Hainan Province Commerce Bureau Chief was searched and the government authorities confiscated his belongings, over 10,000,000 Yuan [500 Yuan is the average monthly income for an urban worker in China] in cash was found. Secretly hidden in the chief office of Haikou City Zhengdong District Court was 8,000,000 Yuan in cash and eight hundred grams of top grade drugs were.
"Secondly, the evil ruling regime headed by Jiang fully revealed its true face of fraud and wickedness. The positions in the party were all bought by money. The position of a police station chief in Haikou City was priced at 60,000 Yuan. If he was not greedy and did not take bribes, where did he get so much money? Last year the agricultural producers in Hainan Province suffered huge losses, yet the party still reported it as "rapid development." The police of Hainan Province ganged up with the criminals and ruffians to invest in opening casinos, operating pornographic salons and drug trading. Government officials having mistresses is also very common."
"Thirdly, they are not concerned about the fate of workers and farmers. My two sons and their wives were all laid off and had no jobs. The whole family is depending on my retirement pension to make a living. After my death, what will happen to them? The farmers still have to pay the special product tax and income tax after suffering losses. The types of taxes are many. Yet, the Haikou City government is planning to spend 1.5 billion Yuan on landscaping. They are even willing to spend a few thousand Yuan and over ten thousand Yuan to plant a tree."
After he finished talking, I added, "Jiang is also very violent. Towards Falun Gong practitioners who cultivate 'Truthfulness, Compassion, Tolerance' to be a good people, he carried out the policy of 'ruining them financially, ruining their reputation, destroying them physically.' It is said that over 500 people in the whole country have been persecuted to death." He immediately said, "You are not wrong in saying that Jiang is violent. Jiang is really fake, evil and violent. It is a sharp contrast with Falun Gong's 'Truthfulness, Compassion, Tolerance.' The Jiang's regime will end soon!"
