German Federal Elections 2017
Above you can see my local ballot paper that I got yesterday in the morning. German federal elections took place and I always do go to polls. As always I was the first person in my electoral district to give a vote. No joke, I find elections so important that it’s basically my ritual to be the first person in the building. It’s simply that important to me, and by going early I make sure that no other things get into my way. If my ballot paper is in the box, I am happy and can do plan other things for the day. Now that the season changed, as same as the daytime light, I fight a bit with sleep problems again. However, the sleep problems clearly helped me, because I woke up several hours before the polling location opened. Other people sleep off on a Sunday, and it’s not an issue because they can vote in the afternoon too. But for me that meant that I could casually walk into the building to ballot for my party, and walk out of the building in under 5 minutes.
I never made a secret out of if on my blog and often wrote about my political opinions. I voted for the controversial party called “Alternative für Deutschland” (short: AfD). Translated the party would be called “Alternative for Germany”. And they really are an alternative in my opinion. I am really unhappy with the establishment, in fact I don’t see how all those established parties differ. They all have something in common in my opinion, they all are responsible for the clearance sale going on in Germany. They try to help this world on a way that they literally forgot the fears and wishes of their own citizens. I can’t vote for any party that doesn’t listen to my fears or wishes. I want to save the world too, and yes even refugees, but I don’t want to do it on a way that I myself, my friends or my family has to suffer. Helping doesn’t work on an unconditional way, I really don’t want that offering help is an unconditional action.
The “Alternative für Deutschland” is the only party that I could vote for since they are against everything (internal) that lead to the refugee crisis in Germany. I have an interest to live in peace too, it’s just not only about helping others. I don’t want more criminals in Germany, I don’t want more violence, I don’t want the insanity happening around me locally. I want that my grandma can go through the park on her way to the stores without being afraid. I don’t want to hear again that females I know have been sexually assaulted in the public. I don’t want to see again that a single person gets attacked by a crowd of bandits. I don’t want to help if those that come here threat us like shit. I don’t want to think about carrying a weapon to defend someone else or myself. I don’t want to see, read or hear every single day that a certain group of people did something bad again in our district. I want that someone makes sure that we don’t have to deal with this.
I did read every single election manifesto of all parties, and there is just one party that shares a consensus with me. It was the AfD and I am glad that I could help them to get into the Bundestag. It was totally expected that they would make it, it’s a quite new party but finally one that is listening to me. For now they will be just the opposition, but that alone is already great because now I feel like my voice is represented in the Bundestag of Germany. Earlier you had a bunch of established parties there, all speaking with the same voice, but now with a new voice in the room it will be more healthy. Also it is massive promotion for the party, now the voice will be heard. The fact that they made it into the Bundestag, that’s quite disruptive for the established parties. The voters of the old parties are dying, I knew a change would be coming but I think this is just the beginning. I wouldn’t be surprised if the AfD will get more votes than the CDU and SPD in four or eight years.
The CDU and Angela Merkel’s with her caused refugee crisis made the AfD basically popular. Listening to the TV interviews in the background right now, Martin Schulz from the SPD is butthurt and calls all AfD voters nationalists (laugh). The party “Die Grünen” talk the usual radical left-wing nonsense and as always they don’t refrain from insults against us citizens. At least the party “Die Linke” is a bit self-critical, but I often like how they do media interviews. And to be honest, Angela Merkel was kinda cute in the interviews, she admitted mistakes, especially related to the refugee crisis. She said they will now listen more to those that are affected by the refugee crisis. It’s really good when someone can admit mistakes, but reality is sometimes brutal, which means “A liar will not be believed even when he speaks the truth”. No, unless they really throw out the majority of barbarians they invited into our country, I will continue to vote for a party that they call right-wing populists.
I am totally happy with my vote, and I am happy a party that is listening to me could make it into the Bundestag. The other starry-eyed idealists got a lesson. They thought they would save people in the world by living in their closed luxury districts with security firms and exactly zero crime, while our districts were slowly converting to rat holes. No, I don’t like many of the things that I see outside, and if they call me nationalist or right-wing populist for pointing on every day issues, I don’t care anymore. No, the established or traditional parties are already done, I am monitoring the election trends since quite a while and I see where this is going in the future. What we see here is the slow death of the establishment, it takes time but we get there. In four years again, in eight years, it’ll be a piece less each elections. The more they deny our problems, the more they fight us by doing so, the faster they will face the end results.
