Proposal for a greater Switzerland by the Swiss People’s Party.

@laurentbelkacem

Ok… Switzerland could take over Savoie, I guess… but only if France takes the burden of Geneva and Jura.

Joke aside, it’s quite a stupid idea. Like several antinations (i.e. Belgium or Afghanistan), Switzerland is mostly defined by what it is not (or what is it against) – and that essence it’s mostly contained by the natural borders provided by Jura, Alps or Rhine.

The only thing in common with France, Germany or Italy is the languages of the three main Swiss linguistic areas. But culturally, the difference is overwhelming. Even with the Roestigraben, a Welsch and a Bourbine have more in common than they could ever have with a French or a German citizen, respectively.

UE could have worked if it has chosen to follow the Swiss confederation model, and Switzerland is failing because it’s following the UE model.

Since I don’t speak German, I seriously can’t tell if this is an elaborate joke or if this is really an ad for the right-wing  party UDC/SVP. I’m also missing some of the references since I live in the French-speaking part of Switzerland.

But in any case, even if I’ve got a lot of issues with hard-line conservatives, I can’t help to find the only way to made the part with Ueli Maurer (or a really convincing look-alike) even more kawai would have implied the use of a fluffy plane. Or a big Gripen mascot.

Le 18 octobre 2015 auront lieu les prochaines élections fédérales en Suisse. Voici la liste des candidats [PDF] qui sont contre le gun control en Suisse. N’hésitez pas à la partager. Un droit des armes libéral étant la base sine qua non du respect de la démocratie et des libertés individuelles, il est important de les soutenir (quoi que l’on pense de leurs autre prises de positions politiques et sociales…), et a minima punir ceux qui veulent flinguer nos libertés.

Next Federal elections will take place on October 18, 2015. Here is the list of candidates who are against gun control in Switzerland [PDF]. Gun freedom being the basis for democracy and individual freedom preservation, it is important to support those candidates (whatever one thinks of their other political and social positions …), or at least punish those that want to restrict our freedoms. H/t Gx for smartvote.ch data mining.
