Vote . Store. Bigotry is an accusation, which is often used by liberal and marxist types to condemn those people who are not of the same "tolerant" or "open minded" attitude as themselves. In other words, a bigot is someone who's intolerant and prejudice, whether it be to another person's quality

On Sunday morning, many Australians found themselves staring into their morning coffee wondering at what point the Labor Party lost the unlosable election. Betting agencies had paid in favour of a Labor win days in advance; even the Liberal leader called the election win a miracle.

I am a young, female, Victorian, inner city dweller, but I made the decision to give my vote to the Liberal Party, as I have since the 2013 election, the first time I voted. However, the elation I experienced on Sunday morning over the Liberal win was short-lived.

According to social media, I: am scared, uneducated, a bigot, should be ashamed, have condemned this planet to burn, pathetic, not a feminist, probably hate gays, hate minorities, and probably want to stop women having access to abortions.

Comment: I'm young, I voted Liberal and I am not a bigot © Supplied AC Griffiths voted for the Liberal Party and has no regrets. Wandering around the streets of Melbourne on this unseasonably warm Sunday, I felt many negative emotions but no regret about the ballot I cast. Instead, I was sad that many people saw Liberal voters as a negative influence on this country.

I would like our nation to take a collective deep breath and hear me out, please. I would like to remind Australians of policies and laws that the "right" have enacted. In hope it might quell the fear experienced in the present.

Federal election 2019: Labor accuses Liberals of creating misleading Chinese-language posters

Federal election 2019: Labor accuses Liberals of creating misleading Chinese-language posters Accusations of dirty tactics break out in Melbourne, where Labor accuses the Liberal Party of deliberately using official AEC colours to mislead Chinese-speaking voters in the marginal seat of Chisholm.

The "racists," " bigots ," and "the heartless." I am everything the liberals absolutely despise. Here was a young woman in my generation (or just outside of it) running for Congress because she knew This isn't even because of her understanding that literacy affects voting --in the original video I saw of

I know many liberals , and two of them really are my best friends. Liberals make good movies and television shows. Their idealism has been an inspiration for me and many others. Many liberals are very smart. But they are not as smart, or as persuasive, as they think.

The political triumphs listed below are not in order of importance or year, but rather a reflection of how progressive the Australian conservative political party has been and can be.

The United Australia Party under Herbert Payne made voting compulsory; Australia is among only a handful of nations where voting is mandatory.

Comment: I'm young, I voted Liberal and I am not a bigot © George Lipman Aboriginal activist Faith Bandler at Town Hall during the 1967 referendum, held by Harold Holt's government. Under the Menzies administration in 1962, voting rights were extended to Indigenous Australians. Granted this was horribly late, but that was an indictment on the nation not the conservative party.

Harold Holt deserves a notable mention; in 1967 he held a referendum on the right for Indigenous Australians to be counted in the census. The Liberal Party was also the first political party to have an Indigenous person in Parliament. Neville Bonner joined the Senate and served in the Liberal Party for 12 years.

Young voters swayed by social media scandals

Young voters swayed by social media scandals Two first-time voters shared their thoughts on the election campaign with nine.com.au.

Religious people = bigots and child abusers. That comfortable formula is safe once again. I ' m a communitarian. Blue labour, if you like. But certainly not a liberal . What I take to be the essence of liberalism is a belief that individual freedom and personal autonomy are the fundamental moral goods.

Update: But I ' m not a racist nor a bigot . That apparent if you look at any voting map and has nothing to do with race. But he thinks it does. Why is it that every time I disagree with a conservative I am an authoritarian statist who jerks off to pictures of Obama while burning Bibles I bought with my

Malcolm Fraser established SBS, accepted Vietnamese refugees after the war and strongly apposed apartheid.

This may be a little known fact but John Gorton introduced a parliamentary motion from the Opposition supporting the legalisation of same-gender sexual relations. John Howard enacted reform on guns.

Malcolm Turnbull as leader of the Liberal Party passed laws legalising gay marriage. Many will say there was an issue with the process but, as it stands, the "right" side of government passed the bill on same-sex marriage not the "left".

Comment: I'm young, I voted Liberal and I am not a bigot © The Age Liberal prime minister Malcolm Fraser welcomed Vietnamese refugees into Australia. The Australian "right" has passed nation-changing laws that were not part of its mandate as a conservative party. It did so because the Liberal and Nationals coalition understands what is right for Australia. On countless occasions the "right" of Australia has followed a moral compass and passed legislation more progressive then the "left" in many other countries.

To every Greens or Labor or other minor party supporter who feels saddened or disenfranchised by the Saturday election, these facts are for you. We who voted for the Coalition did not vote out of fear, nor naivety, bigotry or anger. Rather, we voted with our hearts for a party that will do the right thing on social issues, but which can also lead a country through a challenging time economically.

Liberal diehards toast election in Sydney

Liberal diehards toast election in Sydney Liberal faithful are arriving at the Sofitel Hotel in Sydney for the party's election night party, with Scott Morrison due to address them later in the night.

Nigel Farage’s comments this morning were insensitive and cruel. I hold strong opinions, but I ’ m not a typical journalist, I have friends in I ’ll post some photos from my trip to Switzerland next week to show just how one country handles being out of the EU. I ’ m not a racist bigot but I am voting out and I ’ m

Labor supporters, I am sorry you were left blindsided and heartbroken. In time you will heal and I am sure rally around your new leader. But, for now, gain heart from these facts because the members of the Coalition are not monsters, rather they are Australia's preference for a third term.

Democracy 'not a spectator sport': Why aren't we making our votes count?.
A simple mathematical calculation tells us 5,223,699 electors either did not vote or voted informally. That is a huge number of voters and to put it in some perspective, their combined electoral impact exceeds the current vote tallies of either of the Liberal Party (3.5 million) and the ALP (4.2 million). It dwarfs the output of the Greens (1.2 million), Liberal National Party (1 million) and Nationals (602,286) and destroys Palmer’s United Australia (423,762) and Hanson’s One Nation (376,806) claims they have any meaningful level of public support.
