Lesson for Liberals

This is a fairly unexciting article in the US Federalist magazine.  It is about the US Government enforcing the Civil Rights Act to relevel the playground away from much of the race based nonsense that has metastasized through the US public sector.

The DOJ’s Lawsuit Against Yale Is How To Win The Culture War

But there was a particular paragraph that caught TAFKAS’ eye:

Politics is about using power to enforce policy after winning an election, a lesson that conservatives across the Anglosphere forgot, and are now slowly relearning.

How clear and articulate is that.  Perhaps this is a lesson for the Liberal Party of Australia in what they should be doing.  Or perhaps this is a lesson for those who vote for the Liberal Party of Australia in who they should vote for given the policies Liberal Party choses to enforce.

Black hands all round.

    Are you kidding? The Stupid.Fucking.Liberals now believe in nothing but the perks of power as Abbott demonstrated with his moral cowardice after his election at prime minister in 2013.

    All the old stuff about low taxes and small government was just bait to sucker gullible conservatives.

    How about the $1 trillion in debt they have now saddled future generations with? Peter Costello must be ashamed.

    It’s an old comment, but it’s so true of the Australian Libs:

    When the right win an election, they take office; when the left win, they take power.

    The Liberals have policies? Yeh nah

    US has had 33% increase in GDP in the last quarter…. message for liberals there – go trump or be scared of the ABC.

    Until the Australian Liberals do something about the ABC they’ll remain a laughing stock.

    ‘The Liberals have policies?’
    Yes, of course. Here you go: Liberal Party Policy

    One of the most alarming things about the Gillard government was their boast of passing a record amount of legislation (which was touted by them and the press as a ‘productivity measure’).
    One of the most disappointing things about the Abbott government was that, apart from the carbon tax, they repealed none of it. The concept of actually ‘repealing’ is treated with disdain, a favoured notion of rubes who don’t understand the real (political) world.

    They don’t seem to comprehend that, beyond the merits of any specific law, the total mass of regulation has a detrimental impact on public and private life. The more regulation there is, the more the activities of people and businesses are controlled, restricted, and monitored by the government. There are, of course, reasons for laws and regulations, but we currently have more than at any time in history, and far more than is good for us.

    Ridiculous. It should be much further down the list of priorities than it is.

    What do you expect when the majority of politicians are qualified as lawyers, even though most haven’t practiced? The collective noun for a bunch of law trained parliamentary members should be a shitstain.

    Quite right, we are governed by certified idiots.

    Amend the Constitution to cap government spending at 20pc and hamstring every future wannabe socialist government.

    The way Tony Abbott campaigned plus the reputation he had as someone who can go after the party’s enemies made me think that he would govern that way as well. Then he went all wimpy and, even worse, gave the spoils of office to the enemy when he appointed Natasha Stott Despoja as ambassador for women and girls.

    ScoMo continued the losing tradition when he made Ita the head of the ABC. How many women, or even men, worked hard to get him elected would have done a much better job than the arrogant Ita?

    All of them have children or grandchildren who grew up or currently enjoy the ABC’ children programs which will be used to shame them as has been done before.

    I sometimes wonder why the Lieborals even bother forming government? Perhaps the group photo with the Governor-General?

    Exactly, those seem to be the high point of each recent coalition government.

    I will never forget that — in fact Crossie I asked Tony Abbott about that when I met him at a book launch – he said that he did it at the insistence of that skinned-rabbit armed bag of bones, Julie Bitchup

    The first thing that the libs do after winning an election is to surrender to the left. At this point their is no reason for me to vote for them. They aren’t even bothering to pretend that they are financially responsible any more. Which was the last and only difference between the 2 parties.

    I think it was Dr H V Evatt who said, or words to effect, “the elected Government is for the time being only and cannot bind any future governments”. So why don’t elected conservative (?) governments repeal the edicts of their predecessors after they are elected? The ugly answer is because they are of the same ilk as the replaced government! Here is proof they are all of the same philosophy and happy not to rock the boat too hard as they take their turn in the ‘trough’.
