European Parliament Election, Part 2

Posted in Europe by Ulf on May 15, 2009

Yesterday I told you about my results with the Wahl-o-mat. Now I tried a different program, the “EU Profiler“. On a national scale their results a comparable to what the Wahl-o-mat told me, I’m somewhere between the FDP and the Green party:

It becomes more interesting when they consider parties from all over Europe. There are a lot of parties in Europe that agree with my political opinions much better than those annoying German parties. Here are my three favorites: Det Radikale Venstre from Denmark, the Sociaal-Liberale Partij from Belgium and Democrats 66 from the Netherlands. All these parties are very similar. They all are left-liberals, and they all are in their national parliaments. I wish the FDP would focus a little more on sustainability, then we might also get such a party in Germany. Or maybe I just have to move to one of our neighbor countries in Europe?

My answers to the “EU profiler”-questions were closer to the French socialists than to any German party! I wouldn’t have imagined that…

    Man gut, dass Du mt so vielen Parteien übereinstimmst, dann ist es ja nicht gar so schlimm, wenn das mit dem Briefwahlschein nicht rechtzeitig klappt…

    Andi: Yes, the Greens, the SPD and the PDS are all far too left. Unfortunately, the FDP isn’t proposing sustainable policies — not in their taxation plans, and not in their ecologic policies. I really don’t know what to do.

    Ich hab jetzt auch mal den EUprofiler gemacht. Erschreckend wie sich das Ergebnis gewandelt hat. Linke auf Platz 2 und auch die SPD hat sich vor Gruene und FDP geschoben. Ich denke das kommt vor allem durch die doch unterschiedlichen Fragen. Und was mir dann auch noch negativ aufgefallen ist. Wie oft die Parteien mit denen ich die groesste Uebereinstimmung habe “keine Meinung” angegeben haben. Hab die anderen jetzt zwar nicht ueberprueft, aber naja.
