Thankful it's over
Well thank goodness that's over and done with; the federal election that is. However, there were a few good things that came out of the election.
Firstly, a betting company paid out early on an ALP win and I always appreciate it when the bookies get it wrong; never seen a poor bookmaker though.
Secondly, we were saved from the ALP entering government and regurgitating the phrase used by all incoming new governments; "the finance books are not as good as we were told so we cannot initiate the programmes we promised".
Thirdly, we now have a Prime Minister who is an actual footy fan and does not just appear at games in order to garner votes a la Keating, Howard, Rudd and Turnbull.
Next, the ALP finally got the leader its rank and file voted for several years ago. Had 'Albo' been leading the ALP in 2016 I do not have any doubt that the past three years would have seen us, for better or worse, having an ALP government.
My favourite thing about the election though was the fact that so many people voted before the actual day of the vote count. This early voting allowed my wife and I to get the best of the cakes on sale at the Cootamundra High School polling station on the actual day of the election.

Feminists 'in full voice'
Richard Di Natale, on election eve, loudly proclaimed that the Greens would be given credit for Labor's expected gains in the ballot. Post-rout, do the Greens take any blame?
The Greens were backing, along with about 70 other pro-abortion groups, Labor's promises of terminations in public hospitals, a policy with no plans to help women with pregnancy problems to carry their babies to term.
Tanya Plibersek, the public face of Labor's abortion lobby, herself on Emily's List, along with many other Labor women MPs, has stood down, but Labor is far from a proposed move to centre.
Bill Shorten has been in Labor's right faction; he has been so far to the left - how can Labor find a middle position? The measures planned by Shorten and Plibersek were nothing short of indoctrination in education and totalitarianism in health.
Where is the social democratic legacy of Hawke and Keating? The electorate has shown some distrust of neo-Marxist and left Liberal agendas.
Without federal government backing, the activists now turn to the states, with Victoria already in tow.
Now the abortion war wages globally, mainly to USA with Roe vs Wade under scrutiny, based as it was, on a lie. Our feminists, recharged, are in full voice - where will it end?

Now we can move forward
There was only so far that the people could be pushed against their will and they let this be known on May 18, a day they could not be silenced.
The result was evidence of the need to restore the previous normality where commonsense prevailed.
Time for the left propaganda to butt out meddling into the privacy of the peoples lives. They neither asked for, wanted or needed it, the lectures from the left and its's mischievousness were non productive.
Too many were conveniently silenced to allow so few too rule the roost, they being hell bent on destroying this nation and its peoples and their long time traditional values that this nation was founded upon being our Constitution.
Time to silence those so keen to silence everyone else who doesn't agree with their green vision, alien to the true blue fair dinkum Aussie life style. Time to get back our Christian values and beliefs, our flags, our Anzac Day, our democracy of freedom to feel free in our own nation.
