The socialists and republicans were in power before Macron, and what have they done for the country ? Nothing anybody can remember. Macron is changing things. Plenty of people aren't happy about that, even though they wanted change, and still want change. Change that affects all other French people except them.
I wouldn't say that for the socialists:
- End of death penalty
- 5th week of paid vacation
- Reduced work hours
- Universal healthcare
- Minimum revenue (RMI)
People always forget the good and retain the bad.
Now saying that Macron reelection would be terrible is utterly ridiculous. He's got his own way (liberal) but fights unemployment, and that's what France really need right now.
And I don't care about a bunch of idiots wearing yellow vests. I've seen so many of them driving big SUVs and angry to pay too much taxes (F*** you !).
What would be terrible is the election of the (b/w)itch Lepen from the nazionalist party or the neo-marxist Melenchon.
BTW I didn't vote Macron yesterday.
