I snap non-voters 100%.I myself also have the idea that I don’t belong to any party. The Forum and the PVV are far too conservative. Moreover, Wilders is somewhat too extreme, with that ‘ ‘ Islamization of the Netherlands ‘ ‘. In spite of the fact that they often draw up logical plans, the VVD has become unreliable by their lies. Then you have green Left, with a party leader that I can’t take seriously, and thinks we should live in a fairytale world. THINK there is only to represent the Turkish Dutchman.
Then there is the CDA, with Sybrand ‘ ‘ Octo ‘ ‘ Buma, whose views I often simply disagree with.I totally put D66 out of my head with the hiring of Jetten and the support of a progressive capital tax rate. The SP is far too left for me, despite the fact that I can do that party leader, Lilian Marijnissen. And the SGP and the Christian Union are far too orthodox to me (I am agnostic). And party for the animals is for me automatically a no-no. So then I keep 50Plus over (I’m now 17 years…).
Completing the dial is fun.
My preference in terms of themes is PVV, VVD and think according to the Chooser themes.SGP is also an option, but not on the total of themes. And also no option for me to vote on.
If you know where those parties are in the political spectrum, you know that think and VVD on the left-right axis are roughly opposed to Poland.VVD and FvD are roughly aligned.
The idea of PVV is a nation-state (FvD too), think and VVD are moderate in terms of globalization.
When I look at my own political preference I know that I am more right-oriented as left.I am in favour of market action, except if we find the community to have no or limited market force on a subject, but this choice is substantiated. In a matter of life or death-or with specific diseases that make life very difficult-I do not want market action because there is no market governed by supply and demand. Everyone wants to stay alive and certain diseases make life very difficult.
But in many other cases, market force should be an option, where we look at the total value offered and what people are talking about.My example is always that people like to want free luxury sandwiches, but if they have to pay they make other choices anyway.
With this I am the closest to the VVD, where FvD is also an option (because it strives for a small government).The VVD, however, is just not and FvD either. If I vote this is for a party that I have insufficient support, and then my vote becomes a voice to block others. A strategic voice, so to speak. And I don’t like that, because I want to give a party like FvD a chance, but not with an active voice.
There is nothing for me to vote for, and I am also not prepared to set up your own political party.
However, below is something else.I do not believe in national politics where people choose representatives. I believe in regional politics, where interests that transcend the region (think of the extension of the airport Lelystad) are assessed nationally. But not by people who have been elected by the entire Dutch population. Somebody in Limburg or Groningen has less to do with Lelystad airport, and if we feel that they should have a voice, then I wonder why my neighbour in the east, just across the border, should not. Because that is really closer.
I think we should stop thinking in politics and ask ourselves: Which model now helps the best work together, to achieve a goal?Where there are always people who are not happy with the solution.
In my opinion, this question is insufficient, which means that we continue to fall back on “We always do it”.In this sense, I can understand the FvD…
In the end, we will make the Netherlands all, whether we vote and not.And we do that every day.
People who do not vote give that little bit of power that they have to exert an influence on the policy, allowing them to depend the result on those who do vote.
De facto it doesn’t make them a ball, so you shouldn’t be in it.
(I assume that the votes obtained are based on all valid votes, not on the total number of voters).
In my opinion, people who are not going to vote should not be interested in politics or society.
People who have no opinion, do not have to give me that too.No, you cannot blame them, but they also have much less right to complain.
In Australia, a goldmine owner is by definition a liar who sits on the hole in the ground.
In Belgium, a cyclist is almost by definition a doping sinner that floats on a bicycle.
Still in Belgium, a more political one is almost by definition a liar on a plush chair that fills his pockets in an insolent way.Several scandals about whether or not unauthorized revenues have helped politicians declare that they should “control” themselves better. It has remained in the round of declarations.
The laws that the politics vote for themselves are always (almost without exception) just a little more advantageous than for ordinary citizens.One of the last examples of this in Belgium is to raise the pensionable age for ordinary citizens. The political mandatories “Jump” (again) the dance.
Europe is also such a ridiculous joke.The European Parliament seems to be a talk Barak for outranked top politicians, an excuse to give them a riant income. A European Commission composed as the politburo of the former Soviet Union, the so hated communist enemy from the east. The influence that the electoral citizen can perform on the process is zero comma zero.
In the Netherlands, the referendum has embarrassed the political elite a number of times.Solution is to abolish it. Too troublesome for politics, but the arguments that are pushed forward seem pretty much like the arguments of the 19th century to stop the general voting rights.
If those same politicians devotes the political situation to the electorate, think about what kind of man is speaking on a plush chair and get your shoulders up.
I think we owe the current complex political situation mainly to the growing complexity of politics.We are at a rapid pace reducing ourselves back to screaming monkeys, the monkey who calls the hardest then is right.
The non-voters also no longer know what to do, I don’t know as well.Quite plan and unnuanced you could divide it:
- You just really don’t know and throw the towel in the ring, don’t you vote,
- Do you want to throw the bat into the among pigeons because the current parties do some, you vote populist,
- Are you some idealistic voice you left,
- Are you what egoist voice you right,
- Are you very faithful you voice of course that,
- Do you have the idea that you are calling lonely in the desert in the hope that it will still come well you are central.
The current situation arose because we are dissatisfied and do not know so well what to do about it.I really do get the non-voters, as well as all others who vote in the other categories.
It is located there.People who deliberately do not vote because they are against a government (Liberarians, anarchists) have a point. People who do not vote out of indifference can make the difference. A recent example is the Brexit referendum, in which many young voters who did not want Brexit remained home.
The question is very subjective.After all, if you have formed an opinion about the ‘ political situation ‘ then this is relative to your own political conviction.
If, therefore, the outcome of the election is not in accordance with your own preference, it follows that the party or parties concerned have not made sufficiently clear what the meaning of their programme is.
Not to blame the voter.
Friends of mine are from D66 huize.See themselves and the party as for intelligent metropolitan people, hip and progressive.
As die-hard provincial, my response was that it had very scary elitist features, and that it was once again demonstrated that big cities are bad for your psyche, it turned out that we have a huge gap in our worldview.
It is also the reason for the evaporation of votes at the PVDA.That is not a people’s party, but the party of the Amsterdammers. So do not look at all if the rest of the people do not willingly connect. We from the province are a bit finished with the D茅dain.
So that.A party is not entitled to the voter. If the party can’t explain it correctly, they talk the wrong group to the mouth. The rest is then finished.
No voters or non-voters are responsible for the current political situation.Voters have only 1 day per 4 years of influence.
A good example of this is the Forum for democracy.During the second chamber elections, the FvD’s position was that we should invest in green energy. It is true of economic motives, but every tuner has its own motives. It is the point of view. People voted for FvD and therefore also on that point of view. This gave the FvD two seats, which led to the fact that they would also be relevant in the first chamber (VNL, pirate Party etc. Its all old news)
Two years later, at the first chamber elections, we must avoid green energy suddenly at all costs.FvD was reversed 180 degrees and thus had deceived his voters at the time of the second chamber elections. Then they get through an extremely effective campaign 13 of the 75 seats. Voting for the FvD in the second chamber if you were hoping for a green-right party so had a very counter-productive effect, because with those two seats you provided them the basis for those 13 seats. But they could not know his then voters.
So is it fair to hold (FvD’s) voters accountable for this?No.
Incidentally, I now only give an example of the FvD, but this applies to almost all political parties.From the PvdA to the SGP.
