Why Labor and Rudd will lose the 2013 election

Why Labor and Rudd will lose the 2013 election

At the risk of counting my chickens before they hatch, I will be making a startling prediction. Kevin Rudd will lose his Prime ministership by the end of today.

Before people start jumping up and down and saying that I would never have voted for him in the first place let me put my cards on the table. I did vote for Labor in 2007. This was to oppose the Work Choices policies that the then Howard Liberal government had introduced. Thus by rule of the ‘lesser of two evils’ I made my first voting mistake. After watching the disaster of the current Labor Government unfold I was hoping to correct that mistake at the next election.

Unfortunately the please I would have gained by sacking Kevin Rudd was robbed by an internal part coup that saw Julia Gillard in a Prime Minister. How did that turn out for everyone?

“There will be no Carbon Tax under a Government I lead”

Blue ties, Misogyny, The Greens, Abortion, Emily’s List?

Everyone knew by the end of her reign was doomed the moment she tried to play wounded feminist card. She kept lurching further and further into the ideology of radical feminism as a survival mechanism. Her instincts for survival may have suited a hard leftwing union or even law firm but they did not sit well with the general population who are not even close to her list of extreme ideologies. She was doomed from day one and should never have been given the role.

With return of Rudd there was an unreal jubilation of the faithful and unfaithful. Some people saw this spike of popularity as an indication of a possible Labor win. In short they thought that Rudd had saved the election. What few considered was the possibility that the popularity was a direct result of being rid of Julia Gillard. Perhaps it was little more than a metaphoric dancing in the streets at end of a terrible leader.

The jubilation did not last long.

The reality of Kevin Rudd Prime Minister (Kevin13) has been as big a disaster Julia Gillard and worse than Kevin Rudd (Kevin07).

Kevin Rudd was a hatchet man who undermined Julia Gillard. Then again Gillard was an opportunist who snatched away the Prime Ministership from Kevin Rudd. Both were as bad as each other.

When it came to the 2013 campaign Rudd was inept. He had no future plans, no financial credibility and his only argument was to accuse the other side of hiding something horrific. There was no evidence to support this accusation and only Kevin Rudd’s insistence that the Liberal Party prove him wrong. In terms of tactics this was one of the dumbest I have ever seen.

The other problem with Rudd is his moral relativism on deeply controversial subjects. One day he may be against something then the next he is in favour. This attitude was never more clear than his attitude toward ‘Same Sex Marriage’. Just a few months ago he was against it and then suddenly on Q&A he is chastising a Pastor for not agreeing with it. He went further, using perverted interpretation skills to make a banal and false point that the Bible endorses slavery. Despite getting a hooting endorsement from the crowd on Q&A he must have been fooling himself if he thinks this is reflective of the wider community let alone the Christian vote.

The campaign for Kevin Rudd made image over substance everything. He never correctly identified his enemy was the Liberal Party and its policies. Instead it was about Abbott. Abbott, Abbott, Abbott. The Labor had this false concept that because they hated Tony Abbott he would be universally hated by all. The Canberra Press gallery went along with this myth, so too did the Fairfax Media and the ABC. In fact the whole myth of the universally hated Tony Abbott myth was based upon their hatred of what the vast majority of Australians agree and disagree with. Hardcore feminism, Socialism, Open boarder policies, tree hugging and Gay Marriage are fashionably leftwing causes for the type of people who fill the audiences of Q&A. Cost of living and everyday survival are far more important. Somewhere on the road to government the Labor Party forgot that. In doing so they moved so far away from the middle that they cannot even recognize it.

By this time tomorrow I predict that the Liberal Party will win in expected landslide victory and as a result Tony Abbott will become Prime Minister. If my prediction proves true then the Australian Labor Party will be left destitute and looking hard to see what went wrong. If they are smart they will clean out all the extremists and media tarts. If they are not then they will continue to embrace more fashionably left wing causes.

    Someone just posted on Twitter: Can we have a hot lesbian Asian/Australian in charge of the ALP. Thank you in advance.

    Is Kevin Rudd’s concession speech over yet? I switched off after 2 hours.

        I’m no political animal, as you well know. Politics rarely raises my blood level above its normal rate (whatever that is).

        But Rudd and Gillard?

        Good riddance to both of them. What a pair of reprobates.

    Verbositybridged,
    I agree. But their party should shoulder most the blame for supporting these two.
