François Hollande and Jean-Luc Mélenchon won the forum's first round, so both have gone onto the second. Voting closes on May 6th.

Red - the beautiful color of blood
Flowing like a stream
White - the color of bleaching bone
Lovely and obscene
Blue - the bruising color of flesh
Battered, ripped and torn
The colors of the flag of hate
Of violence and porn
What you see is what you get
You haven't see the bloody trail yet
I'm no patriot, just a hate-triot

If I were European, I'd probably oppose the EU from the left. I like both, but I'd vote Melenchon in the first round and Hollande in the second.

I think he said something quite nutty about Cuba sometimes ago. He also often praises China for no precise reason except for not being the Evil Imperialiszt USA.

One of the reasons I'm for Hollande. Another is solidarity with a fellow party from the Socialist International.

would Melenchon win a majority of the Le Pen voters that turned out?

Well, since Le Pen is gone and there's no other options obviously Melenchon. In the real life I'm "rooting" for Hollande and hoping for FN gains at parliamentary level, for reasons that should be pretty obvious.

That has got to be one of the most retarded proposals I have read on this forum.

Don't worry, I'm sure more will crop up shortly.

I voted Melenchon on the basis of him not being Hollande, but I looked it him a bit more. Definitely Hollande.
