    Didn't you get the memo? We achieved thread singularity. Every topic is about everything.

    This topic is now about superiority of the German voting system: we have a mixed voting system, you get two votes, one to determine the proportional makeup of the parliament, one to vote for your local MP in a fptp election mode. If the proportional makeup and the number of directly elected MPs differ, then seats are added to keep all directly elected MPs and the proportional makeup.

    Fuck off you pony cunt if i want to expand the discussion in a relevant way to the topic at hand then i fucking will. If you dont want to read it, hold your fucking "waa wrong thread according to me" posting, log the fuck off and go take a looooooong trip to somewhere where i do modify my posting because of your personal regulations. Probably a place that doesnt exist, and the only way to get there is to be dead though.

    Nordstern is an absolute nothing poster. A poster child for Generation-Retard . A generation that will be the first to die younger than its forefathers due to all being disgustingly obese autistic pony faggots. Some things were a mistake. Nordstern certainly is one of those things.

    Now that was a post going too far off topic you fucking belm

    Well yeah, but in an ironic/paradox twist of events (more parties making it into the parliament), due to the stereotypical German longing for safety/continuity, we've reached a point where lessfewer different coalitions form the government. Especially with the rise of the AfD (and the SPD's stubborness in regards forming coalitions with Die Linke), it seems that it doesn't matter what the election's outcome is - we will end up with a Union/SPD coalition regardless.

    Yeah they'll do that. They have brought us together.

    Crazy world some days.

    Although in fairness to them, I devil's advocate for the right (or at the least try to explain them to the best of my limited ability) quite a bit. And while I am exceedingly socially liberal, I do lean fiscally and legally conservative (although some of that is, in fact, changing over time).

    I imagine for our many Euros, from a Euro-poli-sci perspective, that combo can look Right-wing by their standards.

    I married a Grateful Dead loving, pot-smoking PETA-member Animal Right Activist. I'm a lifelong outdoorsperson, an environmentalist, with a material distrust of corporations AND government generally, and a huge supporter of liberal social policy (i.e. don't tell people what they have to do for their own good, free people are free to fuck up or make bad choices). When I've voted in my life, it been damn near exclusively third party (in fairness, mostly libertarian).

    I wish for a day where a party exists who will represent social libertarianism and a thoughtful fiscal conservativism (as I define it) supporting a strong, efficient and well-run social safety net of policy programs.

    I don't know what that makes me anymore tbqh. What label best fits....

    In any event, with the mid-terms looming, my vote this cycle will almost assuredly be going to the Democrats, despite my misgivings on a number of their ways of doing business (like the endless racism/sexism accusations aimed at near on anyone who disagrees on anything it seems some days).

    There is still no comparison today them vs. Trumpian Republicanism.

They'd never do that though. Imagine the reaction if they'd written that exact same piece about a shawarma place.
    Lol, that's rather funny as I spent a goodly portion of my early online life doing nothing but debating right-wing-religious types and driving them utterly nuts.

    It wasn't till I got here to FHC that I was labeled right-wing.

    I have much experience with the religious both due to family (the usual moderate but socially conservative'ish anti-abortion Catholic type on both sides of the family) and with a rather large population of "Christians" in my local area. You tend to interact with these folks rather often just living here, working here, having friends here, etc.

    When I discuss these folks, I generally draw on my own experiences and conversations with them.

    This is what happens when you spend your time ignoring anyone disagreeing with you and decry them as trolls.

    Whew lad. Saving for posterity.
