Special thanks to DoDo and Ritter for their informative insights into German political parties in the twilight of the gods diary. I took the advice to heart and after reading more information I've sent for a membership packet from the Linkspartei.
Since I am a new immigrant from the US to Germany, I decided to get involved in the political process of my new country. Not only country however, but also continent. Metatone's diary today of a pan-European party struck my interest and if I'm going to be a European in two years, then working toward a pan-Euro Left seems like a worthy goal. Nevertheless it starts at home and that's why I am getting involved at the local level ... now if I can just find that L'Internationale ringtone for my cell phone!
So this quick diary is just a personal one of one person rolling up the sleeves in their new country to fight for a better future. I will be proud the day I become an EU citizen.
Oh, and Ritter, you're on for X-mas, thanks for the invite.
