French Presidential Election Discussion Thread

A forum for the respectful exchange of views on thought-provoking topics, whether sexuality-related or otherwise; please read the guidelines prior to posting.

Forum rules

Welcome to the Intellectual Discussion subforum.

This forum is the place for intellectual discussions, such as philosophical or scientific debates. There are some guidelines that apply specifically to posts in this forum, of which you will be expected to have made yourself aware before participating. They are as follows:

  • Intellectually stimulating topics only. If you can't have a deep discussion about something, it does not belong here.
  • If you're going to post, have something to say. When you make a new thread, write the initial post in a way that provides an introduction to the topic and invites further discussion. You could tell us how you feel and why, but always aim for constructive responses that further a discussion about the ideas involved, rather than a simple list of people's views. (Instead of asking "Are you a vegetarian?", discuss some of the arguments involved.) This guideline likewise applies for responses to topics.
  • Write using good English. That means full sentences with proper capitalisation, punctuation, spelling and grammar. No one is perfect, though; this is not an invitation to criticise others for minor mistakes.
  • Be nice. This is a forum for rational discourse, not flame wars. No one is always right. Be respectful of other people's views and accept that we are all entitled to our own.

These guidelines will be enforced by the moderators based on their best judgement, and anyone who does not take them seriously will lose the privilege of posting here. Spammers will be banned from the entire forum.

Save yourself, France! Steer away from the corrupt, corporate leftists who want to see your culture and people crumble.

>implying Macron isn't regurgitating right-wing economic orthodoxies and going against everything left-wing politics stand for.

If you identify as a libertarian, Macron is the French presidential candidate who best represents your economic views. You can't use Macron to decry leftism, because he isn't really a leftist.

Yeah, Marine is more classically leftist. The kind of leftist that miners in Newcastle would've loved.

Let's all say a prayer and give a moment of silence for the French Republic.

If you call being complicit and even proactive in allowing the takeover of France by both the EU and third-worlders "nothing," then sure.

I hope this has been discussed.

Le Pen is only going to win 2 departments, Pas-de-Calais and Aisne in the North. We have a lot of votes out from the major cities (Paris, Toulouse, Toulon, Grenoble, Lyon, Strasborg. Macron's share of the vote should keep rising. Would not be surprised to see him closer to 70 than 65. Really a pathetic result for Panzergirl.

This is not magic people. In America and Britain, it was the incompetence of left parties that lead to Brexit and a Trump victory, not the other way around. Hillary Clinton and Remain campaign were terrible and failed to relay their message.

With a semi-decent opposition, far right lost three times in a row in Europe, with all three being landslides. Austria > Netherlands > France.

A lot of snowflake melting and racialist tears.

To be fair, he and other Nazis did run on a platform of wealth distribution and socialist ideas, at least at first...

The Le Pen family's defining moment is losing in an election landslide to a young candidate who formed his party just 13 months prior to said contest.

Ouch.

Her father's insults/criticisms and the inevitable clash between her and her niece is all just a wonderful bonus.

He is going to get help from both the socialists and the republicans, because his party doesn't have parliament presence.

While he was a socialist, he isn't one now. Its easy to prove this. Point out the tax cuts for the rich, deregulations, reducing worker rights etc... These are not socialists policies, on the contrary.
