Qui a votre vote?

Voting closes here on the April 22nd. I'll do a run-off for whoever comes first and second here on Atlas (if we need one, naturally).

Francois Hollande -whatever else I may disagree with him on, I agree with him on this one important issue: that to strengthen the euro (and the European Union as a whole), they are going to have to move beyond austerity-only and instead move on to more growth-promoting measures.

Dupont-Aignan, I guess. I haven't studied him much, but he seems like the most Libertarian-type candidate.

Is it excessive to hold a politician's feet to the fire for giving his base the run around at every turn?

If you want to push the joke to its logical conclusions, you should go for Cheminade. Grin

Mélenchon, I suppose. I'd rather not vote for the EU candidate.

Update reading list

The idea of parodying the preceding Atlasian's postings is laughable, of course, but not for reasons one might expect.

Dupont-Aignan is the closest pick, as Mélenchon is less anti-EU than him, in fact (and contrary to what many people think).

Atlas is as leftist as ever, eh ? Grin

Well, as Boutin isn't here anymore, as Morin (oh, I hate him, but, well... he is close to my views) isn't here either, then Sarkozy has, of course, my vote.

Well yeah Dupont-Aignan is who I went for here, though admittedly, I didnt know what his EU postion was when I voted.
As for commies I was thinking of some of the trot/other non important commies more than Mélenchon when I said that, though I have no idea on their EU views either.

At this point, I'm probably going to vote for Mélenchon as a half-joke, half-serious vote in the first round and, at the rate things are going with dumb and dumber, probably 'be creative' with the ballots in the runoff.

The 'half-serious' part of the vote being a sincere tribute to Georges Marchais?

I don't understand all this love for Georges Marchais. Sure, he was a pretty good speaker and a mostly honest person, but he was also a stubborn party hack who maintained an outdated party line despite its becoming sillier and sillier every day, a quite petty politician in his relationships with other parties (yes, Mitterrand screwed him, but Marchais would have done the same had he been more clever) and whose attitude has harmed the left plenty of times.

Compare with a man like Berlinguer, who was charismatic but also intelligent, had a forceful, original, principled but not dogmatic vision of communism, a project for the future and had distanced from the soviet failure even before it had been exposed as such. It explains why the PCF became such a joke and why the PCI remained so powerful (until, of course, it committed hara-kiri).
