Why not the others? (TK2017)

Might as well continue with a little series about what made me not want to choose one of the other parties here. This list will probably not entail all 28 parties running, because I either didn’t really look at their party platform, or have no past experience with them.

Well, here goes:

PVV:

I actually very briefly considered PVV (although I wouldn’t have voted for Wilders, but rather Fleur Agema). They are very supportive of personal freedoms, freedom of speech, cultural and national sovereignty and totally not politically correct (which are all pros in my opinion). I found them just a bit too polarizing. I do understand why people will vote for this party though, and unlike many people I know, I will not judge people because they did vote for these people.

VVD:

Yay, more status quo, and more dishonest politics. No. Not more four years of these jerks.

PvdA:

Same as above.

GroenLinks:

Too soft. Too regressive. Too much SJW. Too politically correct. Too green. Too expensive.

D66:

Pro-European Union, and therefore undemocratic. Even though they say they do, they really don’t like referendums.

Piratenpartij:

This was a pretty close one. I voted for these guys in the previous election in 2012. They were the ones that got me interested in the direct democracy concept, but they are still opting for the traditional format. If Geenpeil didn’t exist, I would have voted for them.

SP:

I used to vote for these guys as well. But they are vehemently anti-vaping. Because they are so against something that pretty much obliterated my tobacco dependence overnight, I just can’t vote for them. Anyone that’s against vaping, is pro-smoking, effectively.

CDA/CU/SGP/DENK/etc:

With the above I mean any party with a religious slant. I will never vote for a party with religion in it’s tenets, because I want separation of church and state. If I would vote for one of these, I would betray one of my ideals. Also, these parties are very patronizing.

Those sum up the parties I’ve looked at somewhat closely or closely. I might have offended some of you with this list. I don’t care.
