… I should move to Italy. That was like the thought of the night. You might probably wonder why but the reason is kind of simple after the elections in Germany: Nobody there seems to take the politics serious. Since I’m starting to get tired of the politics in Germany, this might be another option… besides the fact that I don’t speak Italian. Well it is one of the few places the Germans invaded – besides Spain, especially Mallorca, Greece and the Turkey. I think even in Mallorca I could have more fun. At least they got some more sun then we got in Germany in every way. Or did anybody got another recommendation for me?
There’s been many thoughts about the German Elections 2005 within the German blogosphere. However, I noticed that many other blog authors had some thoughts about the political disaster in Germany. I’d like to list a few articles that caught my attention as a loose list:

Today is an important day for our country: Germany’s Election 2005 is taking place. While the younger generations preferably choose to vote for the left wing oriented parties like the SPD or the brand new splitt-off Die Linke, the CDU relies on elder people and seniors. With them, they plan to forge their irrational methods of doing nothing else but re-creating the former Kohl-Era under a new banner.
One more thing about the CDU/CSU coalition: Their email spam was a real spam. According to Lautgeben, a famous journalist from the German computer magazine c’t received exactly 120 emails in an email account which was solely set up to report about internet-casinos. That renders the CDU/CSU coalition for many internet users as useless as their political messages seem to be.
I will cast my ballot in about an hour after having the daily routine in the morning of showering and having a good cup of tea. I might take the camera with me and make a few shots of the ballot paper. ;)
The CSU, one of Germany’s major political parties, announced to use e-mail advertisement to gain more votes. I think that’s nothing else but spamming the people with political propaganda. Not only the idea is most stupid due to the advantages of technology to determine and detect spam, but the impersonal manner of connecting their major candidate, Edmund Stoiber, with the people is a sapping task.
According to Blog4Berlin, the CSU will not rely on the rather traditional methods of posting bills and holding enunciations. Instead, they prefer to use more modern advertisements in their canvassing for Germany’s election on next weekend. Approximately 300.000 e-mails and several thousand voice-mails will be sent throughout the country.
