    European Free Alliance. Europe as a whole is about to fold/close up shop/weave into irrelevance/whatever. With a few exceptions. Germany seems to be headed in the right direction. Poland, Czech republic, Slovakia, along with some small autonomous regions, are thriving. They seem to also have the best understanding of what happens to individual lifestyle and freedom when a gov't has to much control. The rest of europe is waking up to this...maybe Go ahead, check on all these countries economies at the present. And what's up with the Swiss anyway?

    What will happen to America?
    everyone uses every function about evenly. take NE for example. if there are those who don't use it much, then why are there such massive amounts of people constantly flowing through Wallmart with 20 items or less?

    Falcarius voted the Green Party, partly because they are the party he seems to have most in common these days and partly for tactical voting reasons.

    The party he considers himself a traditional supporter of has betrayed the very objective it was founded to do, not since Ramsay MacDonald has the Labour Party been betrayed as it has done so under the leadership of Blair and Brown.

    Ever since he has been able to vote, Falcarius has gone to his old primary school, gritted his teeth and voted for the most left wing party that has a chance of being elected. Hence, he votes for different people depending what election it is, and thus a swing voter. Falcarius hopes one day the Labour Party will be run by people who don't prostitute the party, so he may be able to join it as well as vote for it.





    Results for Britian was the following:

    Party ---------------------Total --------------- % -------------+/- ------ Number of MEPs


    Conservative ------------ 4,198,394 ----------- 27.7 % --------(+1.0) ------25

    UK Independence Party ---2,498,226 -----------16.5 % ---------(+0.3) -----13

    Labour -------------------2,381,760 ------------ 15.7 % --------(-6.9) ----13

    Liberal Democrats --------2,080,613 ----------- 13.7 % ------- (-1.2) ------11

    Green Party --------------1,303,745 --------- 8.6% ------------(+2.4) ------2

    British National Party ----- 943,598 ---------- 6.2% ----------- (+1.3) ------2

    Scottish National Party --- 321,007 ----------- 2.1% ---------- (+0.7)--------2

    Plaid Cymru ---------------126,702 ---------- 0.8% ---------- (-0.1)--------1


    The others got 8.5 % of the vote with no MEP elected. Turnout across Great Britain was 15,136,932, or 34% of the electorate.

    If I were old enough to vote I would have elected the German Social Democrats (or the Pirate Party, but they're too small)

    I'm actually closer to the Greens but I'm not an environmentalist. And every political party includes green politics.

    Unfortunately, I cannot vote in Europe (yet), but if/when I get the chance, I will totally vote for the Bavarian Party, which is part of the European Free Alliance. Here is the basic platform, which I agree with to a great extent:

    A. Democratic and transparent Europe

    1. Transparency and accountability of EU institutions

    2. More direct democracy

    3. Treaty of Lisbon must be ratified by the people

    B. Regional Protectionism

    1. Use the opportunities provided by globalization without just being a means in itself

    2. Maintain regional identity

    3. Affordability of domestic property values

    4. No centralism in Germany and Europe

    C. Environmentally-friendly Europe

    1. Prohibition of genetic manipulation

    2. Financial support for organic farms

    3. Financial support for renewable energy

    4. Prohibition of large corporations purchasing and 'sitting on' patents that are promising regarding renewable energy and related matters.

    5. Moving away from nuclear energy in the long run

    D. Support for agrarian culture and tradition in Europe

    1. Rural agriculture is essential (especially small-scale and family-run farms)

    2. Stop large amounts of agricultural subsidies

    3. Fair prices

    E. Consumer Policies

    1. Food labels for transparent information about the contents of all food

    2. Meat and bone meal/carcass meal must be prohibited.

    3. Stricter controls/inspections on food products imported from other non-EU countries

    4. Genetically modified food for animals and people must be prohibited

    F. Animal protection

    1. Animals are living things not products

    2. Animals should be brought to the nearest slaughterhouse to be slaughtered

    3. Fair handling of animals and plants - no exotic animals or plants in areas where it is not comfortable for them.

    4. No animal testing for cosmetic purposes.

    G. Secure Europe (Foreign policy)

    1. Leave Afghanistan.

    2. No troops should be on foreign soil. The military is there to protect your own nation - not to be deployed to foreign countries.

    3. Better cooperation among the police throughout Europe

    4. Fight organized crime.

    5. Prevent/prohibit a surveillance-based society

    H. Social Europe (economic policy)

    1. Social market economy (free market capitalism combined with welfare)

    2. Prevent cartels

    3. Temporary work is not social and should be avoided

    4. Support co-determination

    I. Prosperous Europe

    1. Clear regulations for banks and insurance companies

    2. No subsidies/federal financial support for companies who outsource/move to foreign companies and endanger local jobs

    3. Protect doctors' wages (in Germany, they are REALLY LOW as compared with other countries)

    4. Protect the middle class

    5. Reduce and streamline subsidies

    J. Consistent EU foreign policy

    1. Foreign policy based on principles - sovereignty has the utmost priority, human rights, no unilateralism

    2. Self help only as a means towards independence

    3. Fight illegal immigration

    K. Regional Europe

    1. Solidify regions

    2. Support federalism

    3. EU expansion should not exist for its own sake; rather, it should be in the the best interest of the majority of regions or avoided.

    4. Bavaria should become a sovereign nation state.

    (This has been quoted from the political platform of the Bavarian Party, which can be found here: Bayernpartei )

    Hmmm, sounds good to me. I'm voting for the Bavarian party when my time comes.

    I was choosing between the socialists and the pirates, but in the end chose the reds for broader correlation with my views.

    It's a perfectly decent compromise for all the rest of the matters....

    If Bavaria secedes, then Munich will secede too and join Germany. It won't be the first time Germany will have separate islets outside its main territory.
