The day after

Well, what to say. My bet was erroneous in the way that I didn't expect the dramatic loss of the SPD. Thought it would be close to a stalemate. Now CDU and FDP will reign.

Hard times for everyone who does not earn at least 3000 Euros a month will come. As Sefarina said in her last comment, people often are not really aware of WHAT they vote. They hear "tax lowering" and think "cool, I will have to pay less taxes" and don't make further resarches.

Let's just say I am happy that I don't live in Germany anymore. Not that French Government is any better but its harder to tear down the socialist heritage of the country and its welfare structures without risking massive protests by the people.
Guess I will go back to drawing.

I'd rather be broke than socialist any day of the week, personally.

*Seufz* - ich finde es auch schwer zu verstehen. Mein Wildehemann hat es als typischen Watzlawickschen Fehlschluss des "mehr desselben" bezeichnet - Neoliberalismus macht uns kaputt? Super, wählen wir mehr FDP!
