Currently it is the organized political liberalism in Germany could be better. The polls say it: The FDP CANCER currently between two and four percent around, too little to come back at least to the parliament, much less in demand as a coalition partner in the future to be. The federal government seems to be a kompaßlose CDU, FDP, a disoriented dilute the air almost without resistance.And so with well-calculus, because the next coalition partner the Christian Democrats, if they did because could choose on their way to the visible content open left-green colored arbitrariness, is probably not re-FDP is apparently from the longed-for dream partner is a clingy, annoying nuisance has become.
Spirits, if they resist the politically correct policy direction are often the paradigmatic political pike in the carp pond. Because political correctness is the incarnation of liberty, freedom of thought and circumcision of political action. Down political correctness is the cause of the powerful and paternalists the contrary, the counterpoint, the idea of competition as fear of the plague. Voluntarily accepted political correctness is the home of the timid, the idea of lots and ideologues, the career-minded conformists and copiers, but not of free citizens and statesmen, but the subservient subjects and then either greedy politicians. Political correctness is therefore the enemy of liberals. Thus does a perfectly identifiable amount of voting citizens, although certainly not the majority.
And where there is
The FDP? At a time when courting in the major political parties in Germany to “the middle” of the median voter as the majority fundraiser for the supposedly politically correct want to have in view, it obviously lacks the courage to depart from that visible. Their political product portfolio appears to be hardly distinguishable appendages to their larger coalition partner. And even if some political products of the FDP in content actually deduct from those of the CDU, it notices the little public – not particularly well because the Liberals take the coalition counterpoint is not enough, probably for fear of his own courage, the putative median voter of to lose so-called political center, and thus the present toleration as a coalition partner or even the re-election as coalition partners. Or because it is the political party for the marketing craft public policy offering to their potential voters are not sufficiently effective control.
Liberals in Germany has traditionally had a limited soundboard. Wahlarithmetisch he moves in the long corridor, probably between six to nine percent. Everything else about it has something to do with temporary electoral overshooting. The median voter than majority buyer is a liberal party in Germany, therefore, not strategically relevant. For this reason the smaller coalition partner, the FDP, to survive, voters do not follow the media-oriented policy direction of the great party CDU unconditionally and not copy other parties in the green and social terrain want.
Successful course of the FDP times to reach more than 14 percent, but that was only a short-term overshooting, which at that time due to federal elections is well known, especially the drift of the CDU-programmatic from the acceptance of parts of their very liberal-oriented core constituency was that the then opposition party FDP with traceable catch-regarded as a liberal entitlement. Since the liberal opposition party programmatically obviously done everything right. The present coalition party FDP, this function is as a refuge for liberal partisans usually competing, but also as a reliable home for traditionally liberal choosers because now own programmatic Kompaßlosigkeit got thoroughly lost. Although it is clear that his opposition to government action program and no compromise in coalition wholly-owned intersections, should the programmatic position of the FDP are not defaced to such an extent that its liberal label has to be searched with a magnifying glass. That this is the case now, the current polls show unambiguously.
