Which Swiss Party is Right for me?

Here are my requirements:

- Switzerland for Swiss people (primarily)
- Low immigration limits (incl. low asylum seeker immigration)
- Strong Military (incl. military personnel to keep weapons + ammo at home)
- Not increasing the welfare system
- Importance placed on the Family at home
- No Nanny State
- No to Euro
- No to EU
- No to NATO involvement

Probably more that I cannot think of now ...

If you think there are other issues that I should be thinking of besides the above issues, please do tell!

Re: Which Swiss Party is Right for me?

Don't look for a party, go find politicians that have the similar ideas:

Re: Which Swiss Party is Right for me?

Oh so people are taking my stance against immigration as being "racist"? Well I am not! In fact I always have fought very hard for the diversity of culture, peoples and societies. My simple view is that mixing the cultures, peoples and societies is what ultimately destroys diversity. Instead we should be placing our efforts in resolving the actual reason why people see asylum to begin with - mostly war, famine etc ...

I also don't see much good coming from the countries who have up until now accepted immigrants in vast numbers. So the model we have is not exactly inspiring!

But what's to say that the politician is seeing the same way as the party? I thought I would find a party and then seek out the politician in my area ... and only is both are to my liking I would vote for them.

Keeping in mind that Wiki is not exactly as researched as the stack of encyclopedias at the local library...

The graph is kind of handy. HTH

Outstanding. And you're a fully-integrated resident with a Swiss passport, I take it?

Is your IT job starting to look a little rocky?
