Labor vote: Marine Le Pen in the lead

http://www.journaldunet.com/magazine/vote-ouvrier-marine-le-pen-0412.shtml

The worker vote was won by Le Pen. In her own twisted way, she was the most "radical" and even "anti-capitalist" candidate. Of course, it is the foul, fascist, "national-conservative" radicalism best exemplified by national traitor Petain; nonetheless, it appeals to workers seeking an alternative to neoliberalism.

The Socialists represent much of the same, in that it won't fundamentally challenge the neoliberal, anti-sovereignty project. And even the Leftist Front, for all it promise, made a fatal error by immediately falling in with the Socialists without so much as issuing a single demand in exchange for their support.

I will be glad when Sarkozy, the evil blowhard, is defeated. But the left better get its act together, or the fascist will occupy even more of the traditional ground of working class, socialist politics.
