不折腾,中国北方广大地区一个城乡老少皆知的一个民间用语。折腾原来有三层涵义:翻过来倒过去,反复做某事,折磨。而不折腾,顾名思义,则是拒绝反复,拒绝翻转,拒绝折磨。这是一种对人、事、信仰的坚持,是一种坚定不移的精神。胡锦涛主席在纪念中国共产党的十一届三中全会召开30周年大会上,用北方方言 “不折腾”来表明中国坚持“社会主义”的决心。在国家语言层面上出现“不折腾”,体现了中国共产党亲民心的态度,近年来随着网络语言的不断崛起,国家语言也开始了质的飞跃,不再紧扣政治主题,而是在政治性语言中体现民本化。 (From [http://www.hudong.com/wiki/%E4%B8%8D%E6%8A%98%E8%85%BE Baidu])
