As the Federal Election approaches on 2 July 2016, many Australian conservative voters are planning to vote informal or not at all. This is not the time to spit the dummy: it is vital that conservatives unite. People power can counteract the damage being inflicted by the Left on our society.
This website lists political parties and independents with conservative values. Australian Conservatives are looking for alternatives on 2nd July to give them a voice in an increasingly Green/Left Parliament. If these parties and individuals can band together, and form a Conservative Coalition, their voting bloc will counteract the influence of the Left. There is no 'one size fits all' political party that will suit everyone, so it's up to you to read the policies and see which party most represents your values. More information will be added as it becomes available. We suggest voting below the line in the Senate - you can choose 12 Senators that suit you. Don't be dictated to by the major parites.
With the Turnbull Government's Senate voting rules changes, there could be unintended (or intended?) consequences. The changes were done to remove preference deals with micro or minor parties, yet as the Left lurches to ascendency in Parliament, we need these conservative micro or minor parties to stop the lurch. And the new Senate will last for 12 years.
A double dissolution election means candidates require a lower percentage to win a seat in the Senate - much lower than a half senate election. Australians now face the very real prospect of the Greens gaining more seats - and more power over the Labor and Liberal Parties.
Nick Xenophon largely voted with Labor to defeat bills in the Senate during the term of the Abbott/Turnbull Government. The new Xenophon Party is tipped to win several seats in the Senate.
If this happens, the Left will have a very powerful voting block, which will make it difficult or impossible for any conservative bills to pass through the Senate - even with a Conservative government in the lower house.
As the Left continues to gather momentum, more than ever it is imperative that conservatives are represented in Parliament. Listed below is a list conservative parties that you might like to consider. Some are running in the Senate and others are running candidates in the lower house. You will find more information under the CONSERVATIVE CHOICES tab:
One Nation - outstanding policies for climate realists, anti ETS and opposed to the UN-ification of Australia, including Agenda 21/30
Australian Liberty Alliance - individual liberty, small government, Western values, social fairness and an integrated multi-ethnic society
Christian Democrats - Christian values, opposing Safe Schools
Family First - family values, traditional marriage
Katter's Australia Party (QLD) - stop selling prime land, caring for farmers
Liberal Democrats - Libertarian, self responsibility, small government
The Mature Australia Party - proving you don't have to be old to be mature, focussing on superannuation
The Nationals - the Party representing our farmers
The Liberal Party (Conservatives only)
There are also some excellent conservative Senators in the Liberal Party, including
Senator Cory Bernardi from South Australia
Senator Eric Abetz from Tasmania
Senator Chris Back from Western Australia
It is important that Conservative Senators like these remain in Parliament as a steadying influence and a voice of reason. We have to be careful not to throw the baby out with the bathwater by rejecting conservative Liberals and allowing Labor to win the election. A full list of MPs is under the CONSERVATIVE CHOICES - Liberal Party Candidates tab.
