Libertarian Party FDP Hauls in Big Money for Election Campaign

Despite the fact that the German electorate is so shiftless that the pollsters yawn, major donors still have high hopes that a minor change may occur in the case that Merkel decides not to continue her coalition government with the left-wing party SPD, but rather with the libertarian FDP.

More than 1.9 billion Euro went directly to Merkel’s party CDU this year alone, while the much, much smaller FDP could cash in more than 1.5 billions.

Culturally dominant parties SPD and the Green Party could only rack up 100,000 Euro, which shows that nobody believes in effecting a change by funding them. Meanwhile, openly Socialist party DIE LINKE lives off state funding alone.

Five out of six major donors, large corporations or extremely wealthy individuals, put their money to the Libertarians.

Despite their libertarian rhetoric the FDP has a history of solely serving the needs of the rich. They embody the clichés the left has of the right.

The investment will go the way the Hillery Clinton funding went. After all German election results are VERY rigid.
