So, it is time to vote in the EP elections quite soon. In case that someone else is having the same problem I have had - finding out what the heck the parties actually think of the European Union - I'd like to bring this website to your attention: http://www.euprofiler.eu/
. It asks you some questions, and based on them shows you what kind of opinions the different parties have and which one is closest to those of yours.
Might help in the difficult task of choosing the right party
And the graphs you get to see in the end can be quite interesting, too. You can even compare your opinons to the opinons of for example the Bulgarian or Swiss parties and see, where the parties are most euro sceptic.
And what's most important: don't forget to vote, comrades!
I might also like to use the occassion to utter my annoyance on the election advertisements of different parties over here in Germany.
One party is only making advertisements of other parties' bad sides, saying nothing at all about what they are thinking theirselves - apparently because they are thinking nothing at all, just want to get the nice salary(?).
Another one is saying stuff likes "Away from Afganistan", which is a bit absurd from a party that apparently does /not/ want to move the power on military decisions from the countries to the European Parliament. Why do they vote for theirselves?
Then there are the clever lassies saying "We in Europe", with the German flag very visibly in the background of the word "We". At least to my eyes this only looks like "yes, we are in Europe, but the others should FROG OFF and let us get all the money. GRUAHAHAHA!" - thus not very productive.
Then there's the party that is just saying "save the world" in it's advertisements, not really defining any closer, how.
How on Earth would I be supposed to many any kind of decision based on signs without any content whatsoever?
After going through the "electoral machine" I linked above, I was really surprised of how a certain party actually had almost precisely the same opinions as I do - even though they had done their best to hide it from their advertisements.
How are your experiences?
DER Hasen! Doch.
