Abstract or Introduction
You can stand in front of a McDonald’s restaurant and see a variety of burgers, ice cream, French fries, nuggets, coffee, milk shakes, soft drinks and so on. With all of this food, you can create a very tasty meal. For example, if you are dissatisfied with the cheeseburger, you can ask for a cheeseburger without pickles, or perhaps add a side of fries or nuggets to compliment your burger. These meals have hundreds of variations and the same counts for the political spectrum in Germany. You choose meal No. 1 “CDU” and you can differentiate between a conservative, liberal, or social burger. You can take a religious or atheistic milk shake, and authoritarian or libertarian French fries. In short, concerning German political parties which do not stand for extremist programs, you can find each coloration in nearly every party.
