" Shes up for a fourth term? That goes beyond carrier politician into the realm of Dynasty."
We had this one time, Helmut Kohl did it for 16 years. And he was her mentor, showed her to stay in power with only sitting on the fat a$$. And as i
know my fellow "educated" germans, they would vote for her again. Just because they did it everytime. And their parents did it. And maybe their
neighbours do it. But not because they took one second time to think about why she would be a good choice, or not.
IF, if one believes that western elections are more than a show to fool the people, and not rigged. Because, after her first four years, you could ask
everybody, nobody wanted to elect her again. She became elected. Then it became even worse for her reputation, she became elected again. Either the
german people are so dumb, either the german people are all rich or something is wrong with the election results.
The problem is, we have nobody that we would and could trust, that would be capable for the job. So many will think there is no better choice than
Merkel. And maybe they are even right. Reminds me of the US choice, between the lesser evils.
The AfD, this nazi party, is not an alternative. They would be even worse than Merkel and Kohl together, for the people, for the country. They are
even more neoconservative than the Bush administration was. They have, like Trump, not the foggiest idea of real politics, are just loudmouths that
fish the voices of the uneducated but "concerned and enraged" citizens. Which are angry about themselves, about being losers, but want to blame others
for their situation. Your life can´t become better if you hate yourself, everything and everybody around you, if you are drunk 24/7 and crying about
how bad everything is. But can´t present any better solutions than to become a Nazi.
What people need again is social politics, not national"socialsm", not "in line with the market democracy" politics. People need politics that are
made for the average citizens that keep our country running. For construction workers, for vendors, for cooks, for garbage collectors, for geriatric
nurses, for teachers, etc. Not for rich taxdodgers, not for corporations, not for economic lobbyists/hitmen, not politics to save the banksters and
serve the rich and wealthy!
But the problem is, it´s our system that is wrong, so all the people that serve this system, like politicians, are doing the wrong things. Our system
is made to make profits for the rich. If this doesn´t change, we can keep one Bundeskanzler for 50 years. It doesn´t matter if the puppet-faces
change when the system stays the same.
