They all have differences in theology, structure, rules &&&. You might as well add in the Jews & Muslims & lump them all together as the "one God" worshippers?
That category would also have to include Apple.

You don't seem to deny it though.
And why would I have to?

Focused, as in: Monothematical.
While on the other hand the BDP was focused on trying to portray itself as SVP light...

If you look closer, you will find huge discrepancies such as: The BDP wants to have a clear and enforced policies regarding immigration which encompasses active integration. The SVP wants less foreigners.
Hmm... are the discrepancies and differences really that huge? The SVP wants clear and enforced policies regarding immigration and the foreigners should actively integrate themselves. Or in other terms: the BDP wants limited immigration, the SVP wants less immigration...

If they were totally different they wouldn't have co-existed in the same party for so long.

I still believe that in the long term the BDP is going to attach itself to another party or vanish.

Most of the centre and centre of right parties don't care much for Widmer-Schlumpf for example. The left wing loves here of course for having stared down Blocher. But what use are admirers who won't vote for you?

If you don't see that there is a difference between the two, you are still in denial. Accepting does take some time.

Depends on what you mean by totally different. Centre-right and and nationalist-conservative are certainly more similar than centre-right and communists. I'd agree, but whats the point.

Yup, my guess would be a unification with CVP within the next 6 years.
