Preferences and The Liberal Party

Many people have been asking me why my I recommended that my supporters give their preferences to the Liberal Party. After all, the Prime Minister, Scott Morrison, directed the Liberal Party to put my party and I last on its how-to-vote cards.

The short answer is that whatever the Prime Minister and his left-wing Liberal cronies think of me, my first concern is for our country.

As a conservative, I will always recommend my supporters give their preferences to the next most conservative candidate, whether or not that action is reciprocated.

This is why I will always recommend that voters put the Greens dead last and put the Liberals, whatever their failings, ahead of Labor.

Because we, as conservatives, must not be responsible for helping to elect a more left-wing government than would otherwise be the case.

Morrison Couldn’t Spell Reciprocity

However, the commitment of my party and I to the conservative cause is clearly not shared by a Morrison led Liberal Party.

Because in self-righteously directing that my party and I be placed last on Liberal how-to-vote cards, the Prime Minister is actually telling his supporters to put not only Labor, but also the crypto-Marxist Greens, above another conservative.

If you were looking for a single action that summed up the ideological bankruptcy of the Morrison government, then surely this is it.

Instead of trying to fight against the left – exchanging support with every possible conservative ally – the Morrison government have instead opted to virtue-signal to a left-wing constituency that will never vote for them, preferencing their enemies ahead of their friends.

Most absurdly of all, this preferencing by the Liberal government in fact, assists in their own demise, because it demonstrates to prospective conservative voters a lack of commitment on the part of the government to the broader conservative cause. 

Realigning the Overton Window

In an earlier article on the Liberal Party and the Overton window, I argued that while Labor may have been the instigator of every major left wing policy in Australian society, what has enabled the shift of the political centre of gravity and the Overton Window to the left over forty years has been the Liberal Party. 

Only the acquiescence of the Liberal Party to every radical socialist policy has transformed the prosperous and cohesive nation Menzies once bequeathed us, into the parlous and increasingly repressive socialist state we see today.

Today, under Prime Minister Morrison, like his predecessor, Mr Turnbull, that process continues at full speed. 

So, while I encourage my supporters not to help a Labor government come to power, I do so in the full knowledge that the difference between Morrison’s Liberals and Shorten’s Labor is not opposing ideological positions but more a difference of degree.

Cutting our Throats with a Blunter Knife

Prime Minister Morrison’s government does not disagree with Labor’s indiscriminate immigration program that will see Europeans become a minority in our own country. 

It doesn’t disagree with Labor’s high taxation and high welfare spending agenda. It doesn’t oppose the cultural Marxist subversion of the traditional family with same sex “marriage” and “gender fluidity” theory. 

It doesn’t disagree with Labor’s commitment to sacrifice free speech on the altar of political correctness. 

It doesn’t disagree with Labor’s belief in mythical climate change and the need to subsidise expensive and unreliable “renewables.” And it doesn’t oppose Labor’s progressive march to increasing United Nations control over our country. 

What does differentiate a Morrison Liberal government from Shorten’s Labor has lot to do with timing. The Liberals will stop illegal immigrants coming by boat and not take quite as many fake refugees.

The Morrison Liberals won’t penalise the hardworking and thifty quite as much as Labor with wealth redistributing taxes.

A Morrison Liberal government will set lower renewable targets and take longer to destroy our low-cost power suppliers.

A Morrison Liberal government won’t push gender diversity as far or as fast as Labor would. A Morrison Liberal government won’t muzzle the press and snuff out what remains of free speech quite as quickly as Labor.

And a Morrison Liberal government won’t give away national sovereignty to the UN as fast as Labor plans to do.

Morrison’s Gross Hypocrisy

However, to know what a re-elected Morrison government will be doing in five years’ time, you really only have to look at what Labor plans to do now.

And it has to be said that there is some virtue in the fact that under a Labor government, socialism will be taken pure and not alloyed with the base metal of hypocrisy, as it is under the current government. 

The problem is however, not so much to do with the Liberal Party as it is to do with Liberal leadership, because that is where the drive to create a Labor-lite Government is coming from.

Given that the only alternatives right now are Labor or Liberal government in some form, the best possible outcome for Australia would have been re-election of the Liberal Party but defeat of the pretend-Liberal Prime Minister Scott Morrison.

If that had happened, we could then at least have hoped that those Liberals who were returned would have chosen a new leader who more accurately reflected the views of a majority of Liberal supporters and maybe would have done some measure of what this country desperately needs.

We Helped Save the Country and That is What Matters

The irony of the situation is that there was not really a swing to the Liberals nationally. The major swing occurred in Queensland and it was not so much a swing to the Liberals.

It was instead, a swing to the minor Right parties. The Conservative Nationals were one of the largest of these and we preferenced the Liberals in every seat in a way to best keep Labor out of power.

Whether or not Morrison himself keeps his job however, if the Australian people one day see fit to give me and my party the balance of power in the senate, I can at least guarantee that I will be at the forefront of efforts to ratchet our society back from the crazy and destructive Marxists policies which are championed by Labor and tolerated by the Liberals.

I find it hilarious that Plibersek essentially ruined Labor’s chances in Qld by her idiotic statements about coal and mining. What on earth were Labor thinking? Did they somehow think that voters would agree to making themselves redundant? Were they all going to be re-skilled as basket weavers or unicorn farmers? Wind farm and solar panel maintenance men perhaps. Interesting to see her rapid withdrawal from the ALP leadership contest wasn’t it? In my view she was contacted by some of the ‘faceless men’ and told quite bluntly “You’ve cost us an election victory you stupid bitch so you’ll get… Read more »

Shortone’s Song:

Saturday
All my troubles seemed so far away
Now it looks as though they’re here to stay
Oh, I believe in Saturday

Suddenly
I’m not half the man I used to be
There’s a shadow hanging over me
Oh, Saturday came suddenly

Why I had to go, I don’t know
I couldn’t say
I said something wrong
Now I long for Saturday

Saturday
It was such an easy game to play
Now I need a place to hide away
Oh, I believe in Saturday.

One of the first things Scott Morrison should do is cut pumping millions into Education, instead reform our Education System. Australia has a very low rating in literacy and numeracy and no amout of money will change that. University degrees are handed out like confetti. Stop the waste. Implement and restructure our Education System, starting with Highly skilled Teachers that TEACH not indoctonate.

Tania Pliberchick : Dead set, she is just grandstanding and getting some limelight before it fades and the Labor team settles down to eating humble pie.She was never a chance for leader because she knows she is challenged when it comes to core basics on many subjects.

THE LIGHT. One good thing about Scott Morrison is he is, on a spiritual level (this is extremely important, in fact crucial) with the Light. Some politicians are with the dark side (one particular person who has been involved in politics .. often referred to on Pickering Post .. is very with the dark side). Light and darkness are realities, unseen but real. Scott Morrison is not a born leader, he is not especially strong, but he is on the side of Light. This, of itself, is a blessing. This means he is not allied to unseen evil forces as… Read more »

Until the day comes that convicted drug dealers are celebrated in the same way that members of the LBGT… (alphabet) and Muslim community are, Plebersuck won’ be able to run for leader of anything; unless of course she divorces him and turns alphabet too. To say her drug dealing husband is in the dog house tonight is probably a gross understatement!

FRASER ANNING. I have only just found the time to read Fraser Anning’s article fully, and I am so impressed by this man. He is such a straight shooter, so seeing, so clear thinking, so wise, so patriotic .. he is the one you would want in your trench in a battle, over any other person. If I try to imagine Scott Morrison in my trench in a battle, I immediately and strongly think : No !! Fraser Anning is the politician Australians needs but Australians don’t realise it .. Communist poison has been in Australia’s drinking water for so… Read more »

Warringah? A Phyrric “victory”? Won the battle but lost the war! Stiff luck.
Zali will join the Phelps clown, in due course. Enjoy the position, while it lasts.
Poor sick children, they destroy everything and put nothing in it’s place!
CC is a sick farce, even now the climate and the changes are nothing out of the ordinary and will continue along those lines for many centuries, as has happened in the past. Fools!

Story in the WallStreet journal headlines “A Cimate Change Drubbing in Australia” it goes on to say , if American democrats want a warning about the consequences of embracing the “Green New Deal “ look no further than Saturday’s election shocker in Australia . The opposition Center left labor party had led the polls for months but lost as voters rejected its move left on taxes , spending and above all on climate change.
