    is a sensitive issue in a nation that includes the former East Germany. This hits really, really, really close to home.

        The Pirate Party, being the only party whose main focus is the Internet?

        Alliance '90 / the Greens, the civil liberties party after the Free Democrats* abandoned civil liberties to concentrate exclusively on neoliberal economics?

        The Left Party, which includes the ex-communists, just to poke U.S.-NATO Cold Warriors in the eye?

        Right-wing populist splinter parties? Their main draw in recent years has been linking social ills to immigration. Unlike right-wing populist parties in the Netherlands, Denmark, Austria, or France, they have never become major players, failing to clear the 5% cutoff on the federal level.

        * the party Sabine Leutheusser-Schnarrenberger belongs to, and junior partner to the Christian Democrats in the current German government

          ...but are they, or do they still have some steam?

          Dammed if I know, I'm still stuck in the 60's :>
