Moderates versus Airheads. Like versus like?

Ten little nondescripts trawling for some votes. Nine didn’t make the grade then there was one. My federal electorate is North Sydney, where Trent Zimmerman is the sitting member. Yes, I know, I have your sympathies. There are ten candidates for the seat, including Trent.

I have seen Trent twice on the hustings. Once outside Woolworths supermarket, once outside Coles. He cuts a lonely figure, I think. No adoring crowds. He had a young Liberal Party wannabe with him the first time, two the second. I recall Zali Steggall flooding a shopping centre with twenty to thirty tee-shirted supporters in 2019. I haven’t seen Kylea Tink out and about but I imagine she comes replete with many useful tee-shirted idiots.

If I had to take a guess, I’d say Trent is in trouble. Warringah, were Zali did her thing against Tony Abbott, abuts North Sydney. Same kind of people. Same susceptibility to idiotic thinking. It’s hard to take in if you’re still in charge of your senses. But a great body of people in inner-city electorates think that bush fires and flooding would be quelled if only Australia did more to tackle climate change. Should such people get the vote? Obviously not. They are seriously delusional and need psychological treatment. It doesn’t matter, when so many are delusional, they don’t stand out; instead, they vote in delusional airheads.

Suffering under a delusion myself; that is, that my vote matters, I pour over the candidates. My strategy is to vote Lib Dems 1, One Nation 2, UAP 3, IMOP 4 (by the way that’s the anti-vax Informed Medical Options Party), Libs 5 with Labor, the Greens and other climate catastropharians trailing the field. Kylea’s number 10.

I figure my vote will eventually help Trent vis-a-vis Kylea. Though I’m not sure why I should care.

The poor conservative sods outside the polling booths looked from moderate to airhead, and from airhead to moderate, and from moderate to airhead again, but it was impossible to say which was which. Not quite true of course, but there’s no mistaking how far left and green the Libs have gone.

This then is the sad state of affairs. Thirteen female airhead candidates, supported by Climate 200. All contesting seats held by the Libs (9) or the Nats (3). The only exception, which isn’t an exception at all, is the seat of Hughes held by Craig Kelly (formerly a Lib now UAP). And the worst of it? This suggestion that those being challenged by the airheads are moderates. As though there is a whole other large cohort of hairy-chested Liberals standing up for freedom of speech, religious freedom, coal, truth, justice and the Australian way.

What is a moderate Liberal circa 2022? Answer, a Liberal.

  1. But a great body of people in inner-city electorates think that bush fires and flooding would be quelled if only Australia did more to tackle climate change. Should such people get the vote? Obviously not.

    When Campbell Newman won his thumping majority in QLD back in the day, something like 65% of women on the Gold Coast/Surfers between the ages of 18 and 25 nevertheless voted Labor/Greens. This is irrefutable evidence that women between the age of 18 and 25 should not have the vote. (Maybe if they’re married with children, OK.)

  2. If it antsy consolation Peter, many of face the same dilemma. Your proposed order of voting exactly mirrors mine here in Central Viktoriastan. Don’t forget to hold your nose when filling out the ballot paper.

  3. None of the politicians from the 2 majors deserve a look in.
    Both parties have swallowed the gerbil warming kool-aid.

    I’ve already voted (rural NSW), same thing only different order – UAP, ON, LDP then the majors fucking last. I’m a single issue voter this time around, I call it ‘Vaccine Induced Myocarditis’ – youngest daughter, 23 years old with 2 year old at foot. Coerced into an experimental mRNA vaccine under threat of loosing her job. Specifically, the TGA knew the life altering risks to our youth and the politicians pushed it, yet, either through illiteracy or ignorance, or maybe vanity, they knowingly chose to ignore the risks and stay silent. As a father and grandfather, I will neither forgive or forget.

    Apparently the precautionary principle does not apply to humans, only to fucking trees and lawn mowers.

  5. Took a stroll to early voting and more or less ended up following the LDP how to vote. The Liberal and Labor HTV people were busy chatting to each other, looked like they were the standard young party members starting their climb up the ladder.

    The Greens HTV thing was disgustingly fat, with tits bigger than lots of women, and pushy to boot.

    The UAP people seemed like ordinarily working Aussies.

  6. Unlike America’s founders, the idiots who founded the Liberal Party of Australia did not have the wisdom or foresight to see that radical anti-civilisationist liberals would try to take over the party.

    Liberalism is the antithesis of good economic management and is a lightning rod for society’s hare-brained fools. Since the demise of Sir Robert Menzies, the Liberal Party of Australia has been a virtually neverending succession of liberal fools and weaklings attempting to install collectivist conformity on the party through whom Menzies championed enterprise, intelligence and wit.

    To a man, every one of the liberal fools (with only one or two exceptions) is a quasi-communist party-wrecker milking the state for special favours — an exception being former prime minister Tony Abbott, a weakling deposed by the worst of the party wreckers, Malcolm Turnbull, who had been rejected as a conscript for the ALP.

    The fact that it has never expelled Turnbull because it owes him money tells you everything about a party that has no principles and stands for nothing.

    Same in the USA with the Democrats, despite the fire dumpster that is Biden, the approval rating woman of that age group and is the same or slightly increasing.

    Goes to show you that these women who continually tell us how brave and independent they are all want big daddy government to look after them and be absolved any responsibility.

    what?

    is that the reason, dear lord why on earth are they in debt to him?

    so he basically can say or do anything, he pretty well owns them?

    idiots!

    so, if all the Teal candidates get in, what is left of the LNC?

    almost tempted to wish for all the Teal candidates to get in then watch the shyttfight as they all struggle for relevance in the group, while the founder and funding agents, who I suspect one of is Turnbull himself, try to run the show with all the newly puffed up egos.

    saw the woman in Kooyong’s exhibition of her politics the other day .. there is someone with an angry god complex

    betcha they all want revenge on the Libs if they manage to toss them out, like Labor will vote for much $ spent on investigations and retribution, like a flock of Turnbulls

    to wit

    How hot will the world get under political parties’ climate plans?

    Somehow, this article claims that Teals and Greens will keep world temperature rise to 1.5C, while the libs will have it blowing out to 3C (ALP 2C).

    Who knew we had such power over the world’s climate?

  10. A few days ago I followed a bit of clickbait to an article on Mamamia, about the response to a survey on who readers would vote for. In order, the top four were: Mr Wong, St Jacinda, Plibbers and – wait for it – unTamed Graceless. Some readers expressed regret that they could not vote for the second and fourth of that bunch. I’m not sure that wimminzes should be allowed to vote.

    BTW: Mamamia is full of wokeness and wishful thinking.

  11. There is good medical evidence that due to brain immaturity, the voting age should be 25. “Although the human brain matures in size during adolescence, important developments within the prefrontal cortex and other regions still take place well into one’s 20s.” https://bigthink.com/neuropsych/adult-brain/

  12. Husband votes in rural electorate, I vote in North Sydney – so we have a bet each way, so to speak. North Sydney electorate is very depressing with Zimmerman a certainty in past elections. The lovey mummy woke types in the area may threaten him this year as they are backing a woman (of course) Independant who promises all the lame desires close to their heart – like action against climate change et al.

    Husband has more to hope for – as UAP has signs everywhere.

  13. I 5oo am unfortunate enough to live in North Sydney electorate and my voting intentions are much the same as yours. How is it that we are represented by a left wing fool who doesn’t care about us at all? He has repeatedly referred to his constituency as the guy community rather then the voters in his electorate.
    He must be disendorsed before the next election.
