Each election I make my voting decision based on whose policy platform I believe will offer us, as a national and international society, the best future. If that's a different party from one election to the next then that doesn't worry me in the slightest.

dont get me wrong - I am not voting for them simply because my parents did, or because I always have. Its an active choice I am making.
my comment was more - I will still vote for them even though they have faults and some (quite a few) policies I disagree with.
I disagree more with the policies of the other parties though - so it is what I see as the 'Lesser of all evils" situation.

I find myself loyal to labor/greens not bc that's just how I've always voted but bc they fit with my ideology. I believe equality and in supporting the needy, not only bc it what should happen but from an economically rationalist POV we want to better educate and support these people to be happier, healthier and pay more tax.
If I'm not a fan of Labor policy or the leader like this election, I vote greens. If I am (I've always been a Rudd supporter) I will vote ALP. But I will never vote conservative bc they simply don't fit with my world view and never will.

I am fairly left on a lot of things. I did find myself in a major quandry last election as I detested Tony Abbott so much.
I agree with Labor's policies on social welfare much more than Liberals. But I also believe in small government, in promoting business and many of the economic polices of the Libs.
And I could not vote for Labor given the Union backing. The preselection, the union control, voting requirements and politicking within the party is a stumbling block I cannot get past.
As for the greens - I agree with many of their environmental and some social policies, but could never, ever vote for them based on their economic policies many of which are woeful indeed.

I was going through the senate list for QLD and came across the Australian Progressives. Not a bad bunch, I had never heard of them before
I am still not 100% sure how I'm going to vote in the senate.
