France's Political Parties[edit]

Curious about FN being the 3rd largest party. do you have a source (not for the page, for me). thanks...Sun mowse.pngEn attendant Godot 01:31, 20 June 2011 (UTC)

Here, and also in the WP article. Aboriginal Noise Oh, you want to hit people with garbage cans? 02:01, 20 June 2011 (UTC)
See, that's what I don't get. per wiki, their membership is in the 30K, and they claim 80K, but there are at least 5 other parties that have 50-100K members. which is why i was dubious of the claim "third largest." they got into the final in 2002, but there are other reasons for that then their size. Besides UMP and you have NC which boasts about 100K, MoDem boasts 50-60K. (I'm trying to get acquainted with french politcis so i can take the citizen ship test eventually.... but i'm not doing so well, so i was just curious)Sun mowse.pngEn attendant Godot 02:39, 20 June 2011 (UTC)
It was a question of who bothered to vote. Much of the left simply didn't show up to the polls until they realized they had to choose between Chirac and Lepen. Actually, the claim means little: if you look here, their first round 16% was very nearly matched by other parties, and the UMP only had 20%--"Shut up, Brx." 03:15, 20 June 2011 (UTC)
I come from a two party system. there are "other" parties but they are totally and completely irrelevant - so trying to understand parlament, a legislative body based on the winner of the national election, etc., is really quite confusing. It shouldn't be, i know that, but some times, on the right topics - i fell like Pooh - a bear of little brains. --Sun mowse.pngEn attendant Godot 03:19, 20 June 2011 (UTC)

Yes, the FN is the third largest. I linked to the Wikipedia page for the FN, but I forgot to login.

Re: Waldorf Education[edit]

Hello, fellow Waldorf alumnus here, from kindergarten to grade 10, with a mother who taught there as well. I was curious about your own length in Waldorf, and when/how you left them? I understand if that's too personal of course. Mcc1789 3:45, 9 June, 2012 (UTC)
