How many centrist parties does our country need? How many right-wing parties does our country need? We are confronted with a dangerous development. Politicians are leaving their parties to gain power, not for ideological reasons... When monkey Barak establishes his new party, does he really think that he will gain any share as a new centrist party? At the end we will have many centrist parties and nobody will know what the real difference is between them because each party was established by someone who was hungry for power... This is sad.
