Check out this quote from a source:

The latest ZDF poll shows that 65pc of Germans think the euro is damaging, and 49pc think Germany would be better outside the EU. This is no doubt “soft”, yet what is clear is that the all-party consensus on EMU gives voters nowhere to turn.

Germany?  Is that right, Sandy?  Die Bundesrepublik Deutschland?  The home of Chancellor Merkel?  Well, that is what the UK Telegraph (Thanks to Lew Rockwell blog for this news story!) says in this report!  And it looks like a new anti-euro party called the Alliance for Germany is about to shatter the Tweedledee/Tweedledum monopoly on power.  I am amazed but pleased at this development.

I do want to see the open borders and free trade zones remain from the EU but not the superemnpire!  A federation of liberty parties can pack the European Parliament and rein in the superempire!

Here are some highlights:

A new party led by economists, jurists, and Christian Democrat rebels will kick off this week, calling for the break-up of monetary union before it can do any more damage.

“An end to this euro,” is the first line on the webpage of Alternative für Deutschland (AfD). “The introduction of the euro has proved to be a fatal mistake, that threatens the welfare of us all. The old parties are used up. They stubbornly refuse to admit their mistakes.”

They propose German withdrawl from EMU and return to the D-Mark, or a breakaway currency with the Dutch, Austrians, Finns, and like-minded nations. The French are not among them. The borders run along the ancient line of cleavage dividing Latins from Germanic tribes.

I am pleased to see jurists, e.g., lawyers, involved with the fight for liberty.  I know I was treated at first warily at the Tea Party but after they discovered that, to paraphrase Shakespeare, that I do not have s single horn, they embraced me as a fellow fighter for liberty!  It is great to see liberty rising.  The EU elites tried to shut down all dissent to European unity and have Tweedledee and Tweedledum parties but the people are rising to say not so fast!  Their fight is our fight, too.  The German people had no effective say in what their currency was to be.  The Deutschmark was not the drachma.  It was a strong currency.  Maybe stronger in some ways that the dollar.  I agree the old Tweedledee and Tweedledum parties are indeed “used up.”  They do not represent the people.

Let’s hope this happens in Deutschland:

The rebels may struggle to cross the 5pc threshold for seats in the Bundestag, but they do not have to take seats to plague Angela Merkel over the next six months. She is already in trouble. Her Free Democrat (FDP) allies have crashed to 4pc in the polls.

Alternative für Deutschland threatens to take votes from the Right. On the other side, the Green resurgence to 16pc makes up for the sluggish Social Democrats. As things stand, the Left is slightly ahead. Angela Merkel is on course to lose office.

As long as AfD renounces racism and similar ills, they will have my support.  We’ll see in September, Lord willing!

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
