    Default If you were french , who would be your best party/candidate?

    Here is the test, I'm curious about your results:http://www.politest.fr/questionnaire/page1.php


    I translate.


    1/12 Taxes

    -We must lower taxes for everybody when the State can afford it, and raise them for everybody when it's necessary.

    -We need a general lowering of taxes, to allows private companies and private peoples to invest more in the economy, in order to create more jobs.

    -We must lower taxes on the less rich people, and raise it on the more rich people to favor solidarity, and empower the state to finance the public services.

    2/12 Globalizaton

    -Globalization must be controlled: global institutions (or even states) must impose rules to protect the rights of employess, the environment, and the critical sectors of the economy of each country (such as agriculture or culture).

    -We must supress every trade barriers, and at the same time every subventions and national reglementations which distort concurence, to let the concurence work between the companies of the entire world without limits: it's in that way that we'll obtain the most of economic efficiency, in the interest of everybody.

    -Globalization can be a chance, it allows companies to find new markets, and the jobs lost because of offshoring are usually compensated by the creation of a more qualified employement and then an improvement of the standard of living. But it's also necessary that governments help peoples when they don't find their place in globalization.

    -Economic globalization worsens exploitaton and polluton in poor countries, and provoke offshoring which destroy jobs in rich countries. It's necessary that truly democratic institutions protect people's right (an not thoses of the internatonal corporations) and we must tax the profits of globalization to help poor countries in their developments.

    -Globalization is a chance, because free-trade allow the access to new markets, which empower companies to create jobs: we must then break down theses "barriers" which prevent products and services to freely move; but to make national companies take advantage of this, we must as much as possible free the companies of every constraints which wheigh on them and disavantage them compared with their foreign concurents.

    3/12 Poverty and social exclusion

    -Instead of assist people to much (and encourage them to take advantage of the system) we must responsabilize them so that they count more on themselves and less on the State to get by.

    -The State must helm the most poors, but we must not expect everything from the State.

    -The State must ensure that everybody receive enough to live decently.


    4/12 Public services and importance of the State


    -The state must focus on his main missions and share his others missions with the private sector (for social security, postal service, universities...) to lower their costs of functioning and gain in efficiency.

    -We ought to raise the numbre of public jobs and devote much more money to public service so that each users, whatever his means are, have an access to high-standared public services (for health, education, culture, water, energy, communications, collectives transports...); public services have a social mission, they must not seek rentability.

    -Every public services have a social mission - to leave no one away - that private companies could not assume; they must have sufficients means to serve the collectivity, but the sate must also seek to make them more rentable.

    -To fulfill thier mission without represent a too much high charge for the state, public services must becom at the same time more efficient and less expensive; some of them (as, for examples, postal servie or rail) can be opened to concurence and even privatized in part - as long as the State keep control on them - which will encourage them to improve.

    -The State must focus on its 3 actual mission that are police, justice and national defense; everything else can be entrusted to the private sector, which management practices are far more efficients.

    5/12 Companies

    -We must impose the social progress in companies; and raise the cost of termination for companies which makes profits.

    -The State must restore all their freedoms to companies, supressing taxes and regulations which are imposed to them and handicap them in their growth.

    -We must help in priority the small and medium sized companies lowering their taxes and administratives constraints, and let boss and syndicates negotiate the most of operation the more adapted to each sector of activity.

    -The profits of compagnies must be gave in priority to the salary workers, and not to the shareholders anymore and we must forbid the collective terminatory to companies which makes profits otherwise that they are requisitioned to the benefit of the employees.

    -Compagnies must stand less social charges and less regulations, so that they hesitate less to hire and can be more competitive.

    6/12 Religion

    -Wether we are believer or not, we must not neglect the moral values embodied by religion.

    -We must accept every sort of religious practice, as long as they are freely consented, even if they can appear shocking in view of some.

    -We must fight the religious moral, because it prevents peoples to live and think freely.

    -Religion can sometimes be an obstacle to individuals freedoms, but also bring answers to the big questions of life.

    -The religious message is primordial, because it guides us in life helping us to distinguish the good from the evil.


    6/12 Homosexuality

    -We must recognize homoparentality and lean to equality of rights for gay couples, which must be allowed to live showing their homosexuality if they want to.

    -Homosexuality is dangerous for society; we must raise against everything which could encourage it.

    -The view of society on gays must change so that we end discriminations that they may be victims. But it's not desirable to allow marriage and adoptions for gay couples.

    -We ought a total equality of rights for gays who must be allow to live normally, be married, and rise and adopt childeren if they want to.

    -If homosexuality itself is not a problem, it is annoying when it is showed; and we must defend the traditional model of couple, with a father and a mother, to raise children.

    8/12 abortion

    -If we must guarantee abortion access, we must sensibilize women to the fact that abortion is not a trivial matter.

    -Women must have access to abortion, but in some specific cases only, when their health is in danger, or in the case of pregnancy due to a rape.

    -We must defend the women's right to abort freely and free of charge.

    -We must forbid abortion, to abort is always a crime.


    9/12 Drugs

    -Legalization of cannabis would be a serious mistake, we must rather fight against the use of every drugs.

    -We must legalize soft drugs, and decriminalize the use of hard drugs.

    -We must legalize cannabis, proning a moderate use, as for alcoohol.

    -The issue of drugs is complex: we must above all take in account the opinion of the specialists.


    10/12 fight against criminality

    -Everyone is responsible for his actions: we can always decide to not fall into criminality; so, to dissuade criminals to proceed to act, it's necessary that the incurred sanctions be truly deterrents.

    -It's often in difficults contexts that rises criminality (unemployment, ghetto, family problems, difficulty of integration..), but the context doesn't explain everything; it's a just balance between prevention and deterrents penalties that we must find to lust with efficiency against criminality.

    -Criminality is above all the result of a difficult context (unemployment, ghetto, family problems, difficulty of integration..) then to obtain lasting results in term of fighting against criminality it's theses contexts that we must attack in priority.

    11/12 Right to vote and nationality

    -Every foreign, wherever they are from, and installed in france since a long time, must be allowed to vote at least to the local elections, and we must facilitate their access to french nationality.

    -Only the french must have the right to vote; and, exept exeption, we can't be franch without having french parents: we must applies the jus sangunis and not jus solis.

    -Only the french must have the righ to vote; and every peoples who are born and live in France, whatever their origin is, must have the french nationality.

    -Every foreign linving in France must have the right to vote, whatever their nationality is.

    -Only the french must have the right to vote; and should be allowed to becom french only the immigrants who show their attachment to France, doing efforts to be integrated, and doing a volontary step to obtain te nationality.

    Immigration

    -Integration works when immigrants feel that they have right but also duties; and it's important to fight against illegal immigration.

    -Promblems related to immigration don't come from the immigrants but from the context (economic, social, historic...) where immigration happens, and the first urgency is to make respect the rights of the immigrants, wether they are in regulary situation or not.

    -To facilitate the integration of the immigrants, we must fight unemployment, which encourage withdrawal, and make respect the rights of immigrants fighting against discriminations that they may be victims.

    -To make integration succesful, it's necessary, at the same time, that immigrants be less discriminated , and that they respect the values of the host country.

    -Some immigrants will always be foreing: their place would rather be in their country, for their goods and for the ours.

    For you, it is more important to share the beliefs of a politcval personality about

    -the way they envisage the economical and social problems
    -the issues about society, the changing mores.
    -his conception of France, Europe, the world
    -none of theses points especially

    possible other priority issue non mentioned previously

    -the defense of the environment, in particulary by the stop of nuclear power
    -the defense of the rural lifestyle
    -the defense of the republican equality (the rejection of differents rules based on regional or individual specificity: Corse, gays, praticioners of a religion etc.)
    -none of theses points especially

    Check the option which seems the closest to you.

    You take the left.

    No party is exactly what you think.
    However, parties whom you are closest (in order):

    1. Cap 21
    but still you do not share the same views on the importance of personal responsibility of people, nor on the evolution of customs.

    2. the Left Radical Party (PRG)
    but, in general, you give more importance to the context in which people operate (or less emphasis on personal responsibility).
    The PRG supports the candidacy of Francois Hollande.

    3. the Socialist Party (right wing of the Socialist Party)
    Francois Hollande is the candidate of the Socialist Party.

    4. Europe Ecology - Greens
    but you are giving less importance to the role of government in economic and social development.
    The LV-EE candidate for president is the former judge Eva Joly.


    I'm an American, what does the CAP 21 party stand for? And how many active political parties currently exist in France?

    CAP 21 is an ecologist and centrist party, while Europe Ecologie is an ecologist and leftist party. They associate you with the PRG and the right wing of the Socialist Party, wich means taht you are moderately on the left. Theses two parties support François Hollande.

    They say you are ecologist but more on the left than Cap 21 and less on the left than Europe Ecologie even if you till closer with CAP 21. They basically advise you to either vote for François Hollande either for Eva Joly if ecologic issues are really too much important for you.

    There's 10 candidates in competition for the current election, but if we take every political parties in France, we can easily multiply that number by two.

    You lean left.

    No party corresponds exactly to your opinions.
    However, the parties to which you most closely align are (in order):

    1. The Socialist party
    François Hollande is the Socialist Party candidate

    And, to a lesser extent,

    2. The Communist party (PCF)
    But you don't share all of the same opinions on the role of the state in the economic or social domain.
    The PCF supports the candidacy of Jean-Luc Mélenchon, the candidate of the Leftist Front, under which are grouped the PCF, the Left Party, and the United Leftist Party

    3. The Left Party (PG), Jean-Luc Mélenchon
    But you don't share all of the same opinions on the role of the state in the economic or social domain.
    Jean-Luc Mélenchon is the candidate of the Leftist Front, under which are grouped the PCF, the Left Party, and the United Leftist Party

    4. Radical Party of the Left (PRG)
    But in general, you place more importance on the context in which people evolve (or less importance on their personal responsibility)
    The PRG supports the candidacy of François Hollande.

    The Communists, all the way.

    The national front in France always sounds freakishly reasonable these days too, I hate that because while they can talk like uncapitalist or anti-capitalist cultural traditionalists they're all closet goose stepping morons dreaming about killing children like in Norway.

    My manifesto would be stupidly simple.

    Taxes, they arent ever getting lower, some people got to get used to that, other people need to start paying them.

    The mixed economy, its here to stay, capitalism and socialism are perfectionist visions and no economy really conforms to either, or can, while an economy may have characteristics of either, as defined by capitalist and conservative ideology, its unlikely to be able to function beyond a certain point with too much of them.

    Sexuality, the majority of people exhibit one sexuality, minorities make different choices, the majority doesnt have to approve of those choices, doesnt even have to be interested and can even be disgusted. The same holds true for the minority too. If your sexuality IS what defines you, you've got a pretty one dimensional personality and dont expect anyone to subsidise, support you or bail you out.

    Race, ethnicity and immigration, no one wants a single flavour of ice cream for the rest of their lives, although diversity being good in either ice cream or culture does not mean there isnt any distinctiveness, nor that people wont have preferences or favourites. Anyone whose culture is threatened by cultural diversity and disparity has a weak ass culture.

    Social conscience, there's a straight dope choice here, you dont like state paternalism well then you're your neighbours keeper. If you cant or wont do a better job then keep out of the way while others perform that role dutifully. And pick up the damn tab you lazy, selfish smuck.

    Criminal justice, very simple, consistent messages, no excuses, no hard luck stories, no technicalities. Wrong doing is going to be made unpopular, come hell or high water. Very clear boundaries between care and correction established, people will choose which they want to fit into, either on the providing or receiving end of it and take the consequences associated with that.

    The aim of all public policy and politics will be congruence, not simply consensus or shared perspectives but proper congruence, and the management and/or resolution of what conflict and sincere differences remain after that will occupy future generations.

    Ayn Rand is no longer going to be for sale any place in this country. Although there's going to be a publishing drive on Erich Fromm and Abraham Maslow.

    It's a problem of translation. Libéral =/= Liberal in the anglo-american sense, which equal a social-democrat or a socialist. Libéral = classical liberal, or or pro-market libertarian, just like Hayak, Bastiat, Friedman, etc.

    I got the Parti Libéral Démocrate too.
