These last two paragraphs in this Breitbart article reporting a poll that surely ruined Chancellor Merkel’s bratwurst lunch (because AfD – the UKIP/Tea Party of Germany is now Deutschland’s THIRD largest party at ZEHN [that’s TEN in German] PERCENT!):

Yet For the AfD, standing up for Germany means “an EU of sovereign states supporting human rights, democracy and the values of the Christian West; [a stop to] excessive EU centralism, bureaucracy, and a common currency that leads to rescuing incompetent banks, to frustrated jobless young people and to minimal pensions.”

Earlier this month on a trip to the US, Ukip leader Nigel Farage told Breitbart News that in England, “we believe in democracy, we believe in the rule of law, we created the Magna Carta, these are what it means to be British.”


PS:  This is in contrast to the standard Tweedledee-Tweedledum position:

The [AfD] party’s slogan at the European elections was “Mut zu Deutschland!”: ‘Courage to stand up for Germany!’ In the European Institutions, such sentiments are frowned upon. Merkel herself has said that they go entirely against “the European spirit” of compromise, consensus, and “solidarity” across the EU.

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