HOW ABOUT the 8.5% that the ANTI-EURO party got in the LOCAL BAVARIAN ELECTIONS? A HINT of what’s to come NEXT SUNDAY?

The Bavarian state parliament elections were today and the so-called conservatives of Chancellor Angela Merkel (They are conservatives like I am a communist! It’s really Tweedledee and the left is Tweedledum!) did win the election but I’d guess that this little tidbit might have caused some angst (That is German for fear actually!  Pun intended!) tonight for the Chancellor:

In Bavaria, the projections showed a center-right party that’s strong locally but not nationally, the Free Voters, taking about 8.5 percent of the vote. A new anti-euro party that’s running in the national election, Alternative for Germany, didn’t field candidates on Sunday.

The Free Voters are an anti-euro party.  Here is a blog post on them by yours truly.   Also this description is helpful:

Unlike the “Alternative for Germany”, the Free Voters do not advocate for abolishing the euro. They want to expel troubled southern countries temporarily from the euro, until they “recover”, Aiwanger explained. The party was founded in 2009 but has so far only made it into the Bavarian regional parliament.

Certainly anti-euro as it is presently constituted.  Really pro-German taxpayer.  Since the AfD did not run in Bavaria for the state elections, it is hard to say for sure.  But if I were Chancellor Merkel, I’d be just a little be worried by this development.

    I have a question for you Mr. Sanders.

    1) Who has the right to define Conservatism?

    2) Who gave them the right to define Conservatism?

    3) By what authority was the right given to them?

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