I like the idea of protecting Taiwan in principle, but I really don't like Section 1, and to a lesser extent, Section 3.  Carrying out Section 1 could easily make China very nervous, and a nervous China is not an asset to global stability and to the movement to stop all possibility of nuclear war by any means.  Section 3 I could live with if I had to, but, again, I think that openly supporting people whose goal is, as far as I can tell, the overthrow of the current Chinese government, is not a good idea.

If that's not what the Pro-Democratic and Free China Operatives are for, please correct me.

(PS: You can change your title to simply "Senator" now. Wink )

I think that there seems to be a general consensus that we should amend this bill to strike Section 1, so I'd like to propose that amendment.

The rest of the bill I can live with, though I'm still not 100% comfortable with Section 3.

Are you guys allowed to vote on an amendment put out by someone not a Senator?

John F. Kennedy proposed the amendment right before calling a vote.

Regarding the amendment:

Yea.
