    You yourself said its important to share those values with your partner, as per my first point, thus I disagree with you and find most Liberal voters to hold values that are not congruent to living in a healthy inclusive society. IMO
    Thanks for clarifying.

    While my DH shares my political views, my friendship group includes people who vote for all parties. I couldn't imagine only being friends with those who voted the same as me, or viewing people who voted differently as people not worthy of my friendship.

    Yep I agree. I foresee I may move to the right with DH over time and that is fine. But this is why I avoid talking about politics with people unless it's with close friends or family who I've known for years and we are on the same page. I don't know a number of my friends political leanings, if some of them vote differently from me i would actually see that as a good thing, sonething to learn from. but I find my closest friends naturally have similar views to me anyway.

    I agree.

    I differ to many here in that I don't feel that I need to share the same views as my DH. We have both voted very differently in the past and will probably continue to do so at times. I don't feel that how we vote defines us or our relationship. I've also had long terms relationships with people who vote the same as me and none of these worked out.

    Note I said More friends.I have a all kinds of friends, some are Liberal voters however, I tend to gravitate towards people who vote to the left. I have a lot of dear friends who hold the same values as me. I just haven't gelled well with Liberal voters. It's not that they aren't worthy of my friendship, however I can see on the flip side if I was a Liberal voter, that I might love to have lefty friends, as they tend to be generous and warm hearted and caring. Less individualistic, more inclusive.
    If people vote Liberal, I'd love to know what policies attract them to the party. Because from a human rights and equal opportunity stand point I just don't see why any one would want to go down that road.

    Yes I know who i will be voting for.

    Dh and have rarely voted for same candidate. We respect each other enough to know that we can believe different things. We know we both want what is best for the country even if we disagree who/what that is.

    I could never vote for a party who thinks it's acceptable to keep a mother away from her sick baby and then lies about it to cover it up.

    I really like our local liberal member but I think I personally, would have to be in the midst of a psychotic episode to place a vote that would put Abbott in power.

    As an advocate for quality early childhood education and care and children's rights I am also very impressed with Labors committment to early childhood through the NQF, increased funding and the creation of the positions of National Childrens Commissioner and Minister for Early Childhood and Childcare. The liberal party pales in comparison, my hubby feels the same way.

    I'm a dyed in the wool Labour voter, but I have to say you can't seriously believe that the Labour party would be any different. Politics is still an old school men's club, the vast majority of them would probably be of the opinion that you suck it up and let the partner at home deal with it.

    I agree. I asked DH tonight how he will vote and he doesn't know. But he said after today and that story he said he just can't trust men like tony Abbott and Christopher pine. He finds them just so anti-women he could never bring himself to vote liberal. Hove if Malcolm turnbull was leader he might consider it.

    I think this election is really tough. Labor has to go but I feel sick thinking about the current line up in the liberal party.

    I actually think labor would be very different in how they deal with this.
