50. If you're alluding to Jean-Marie LePen

he has no credibility in France. He is considered to be a lunatic and an embarrassment by 99.5% of the French population. Yes he made the second tour in the presidential elections against Chirac, BUT France has a multi-party system of elections, so you can become a Presidential contender because the vote has been divided into 4 or 5 Presidential candidates.

The horrified reaction of the French press to this event should be evidence that JM LePen's popularity is not a feature which can be used to judge French society. People took concrete steps to combat the ignorance which led to this result of JM LePen.

Marine LePen, though I deeply mistrust her, has publicly broken with her father. Her popularity in France s not based on racism, though many try to say it is. She is "Laic" (secular). I have never heard any hatred of Jews in her speeches. (This cannot be said for her father - he is antisemitic and continues to spew out antisemitic statements)

I take care to actually listen to my political opponents, unless they are completely insane. Marinne LePen in not insane and I agree with her about the problems in the Euro zone and Europe, as do many French. I really hesitate to try and explain these issues to Americans because I can't sum up the economic and social issues facing France, especially in regards to its place in the EU, in a DU post.

God, I hope I don't regret posting this.

Peace
