I had an email conversation with an American who lives in China and I asked him about what the Chinese thought of our "Banned" Commercial: Ron Paul 2012. Here is his reply which is quite moving:
Well I showed it to my wife (who is Chinese). The translations don't match 100%, I saw the original afterwards and was like "okay that's better". But, I'll actually share something with you very true.
When I first came to China I lived in a place called XiaoShan( a rich district of Hangzhou) and made a few friends with business owners. Last month I met up with them at a convenient store and on the TV there was talk about U.S. politicians. XiaoCun (her name) was very excited talking about a politician that was really good, he was even in the newspaper (here in China) and that most Chinese people thought he'd be the one to beat Obama. I honestly thought it was Rick Perry but when I showed her a picture of him on my Laptop she said nope. I showed her Ron Paul and she knew exactly who he was.
The question that followed her face afterwards was priceless, she said "Why don't you Americans listen to him, the words he says are so good, we never get a chance to have something like that in China." Afterwards a huge debate arose about how sick they were about the Chinese government, how they wanted Ron Paul's idea of freedom in China but it'd never happen. And the obvious "you guys get a choice but don't take it, we get no choice and it's what we want."
It ended in a somebody else would win because Americans don't understand and care anymore. My wife constantly says when I'm watching Ron Paul videos on Youtube "He looks like such a good man, I wish I could vote to help you."
