German Federal Election Biography - Die Linke: For the upcoming German Federal Election on September 24, 2017, one of the major political parties we will be looking at is the leftist Die Linke (German for "The Left") party. Die Linke's policies are liberal oriented, based on democratic socialism, and the party is led by Sahra Wagenknecht and Dietmar Bartsch. Last election, Die Linke secured about 8.6% of votes, winning them 64 seats in the German Bundestag, and to this day remain is the fourth largest political party in Germany, with about 63,784 registered associates. Some of Die Linke's major policies include: Fiscal: The goal for democratic socialism to overtake capitalism. The expansion of government funding in education, culture and the arts, infrastructure, and other public investments. Increased taxation for extensive corporations. Stronger anti-trust laws. Foreign Policy: The goal for international disarmament. Forming a NATO replacement including Russia as an associate. The preference of diplomatic solutions over confrontations and or conflict. The goal of removing all United States military bases in Europe. Increased foreign aid to developing countries. Desires for a stronger role in the United Nations. Immigration: Wants to integrate immigrants into European society. Believes they should be able to choose where to seek refuge in Europe Despite the large following, many critics call Die Linke a "far-left" group, as some leaders have quoted Karl Marx in their speeches to promote their ideas, and many supporters are described as communists for their beliefs. However, the German government does not recognize them as a threat to German stability and democracy. What do you think about the Die Linke?
