German classical liberals do well

I’m told the T-Shirt slogan means “make love, not tax forms.” 
The Free Democrats, Germany’s classical liberal party, has had its best election result ever, increasing its vote to 14.5%.:

Given these unsolved problems, economic reform could hardly be more urgent. This is why Sunday’s election is such a significant event because the big winners of the election were the Free Democrats. In Germany’s political landscape, they were the only party to resist the general shift to the Left. They stood by their earlier commitment to economic modernisation, which made them attractive to everyone who opposed the standstill of the Grand Coalition years. Their reward was the best election result in the Free Democrats’ history.

Sticking to your principles and can lead to political rewards. there’s a lesson there for someone.
