Partei Bibeltreuer Christen

I often chat about the wide variety of German politics.  One example of that is the vast multi-party system that exists today in Germany.  One example of this?  The PBS group.....the Party of Bible-Abiding Christians.

In the 2013 national election in Germany....the PBS group had roughly 2,000 votes.  Not enough to really say much....just a simple statistic at the end of the day.

It's been around for almost thirty years now.  Base of operations?  Mostly around Wurttemberg.

Chief theme?  While it might be comes down to two chief themes....against abortion and against gay-marriage.  Oh, they will say they are pro-Bible as well, but that typically doesn't get people all hyped up on their political party.

The odds of ever expanding and getting 100,000 votes?  One in a million is the number that I'd give them.

The thing about these oddball minor parties in Germany is that you are talking about two to three million votes in each election out of the 44-million typically cast....that will go to zero-chance political parties.  Most rarely even make a dent in state politics....let alone local city politics.  Yet they continue to survive.
