I thought it would be about time we got a topic of politics so that everyone besides Americans could be interested.
Some basic rules, just give a general idea of the parties in your country, and which one(s) you support. First give their names in your own tongue, and then translate them to English, and try to put them on an ideological scale. (Communist, liberal (in the classical free market sense of the word), conservative, nationalist) etc.
So for Denmark
Socialdemokratiet (the Social Democrats), suppose the name kinda gives it away. I see them as more neo-liberal now that they are often pushing for privitization etc. much like their counterparts in Germany.
Venstre (Left) this is actually a very right wing party. They are called left only because they are on the left side of the parliament. They are a liberal party that believes in small government and little government influence in the market etc.
Konservative (Conservative), they are obviously conservative. But to the left of the liberals.
Dansk Folkeparti (Danish People's Party) a disgusting nationalist party, they are the Danish equivalent of Le Front. Very much anti-foreigners pro-Danes etc. Awful stuff.
Fremskridtspartiet (The Progress Party) They are like the Danish People's Party except even more right wing.
Centrum Demokratiet (The Center Democrats) They are to the right of the Social Democrats, but only just a little bit
Kristendemokraterne (The Christian Democrats) They are anti EU that's good. They are also pro-life that's bad. They are a religious party, I'm generally distasteful of that idea.
Radikale Venstre (The Radical Left) Denmark's most center party. They are really pro-EU. I don't like them.
Socialistiske Folkeparti (The Socialist People's Party) They are what the social democrats should be. However they are hardly a socialist party anymore.
Enhedslisten (Unity List) A group of socialist and communist powers that went together to get representation in Parliament. My party supports them but is not a part of them.
Danmarks Kommunistiske Parti (ML) (Denmark's Communist Party ML) My party. They are former Hoxhaites, and the largest communist party in Denmark. They are working on a merger with KPiD, and things are looking up. So perhaps in the next election they will try and get elected into parliament.
And that's the Danish one as it is. And I am actually an active member of DKP-ML. So how is it for y'all out there?
