My Senate vote usually goes to a minor party, this time around it will be for the Liberty and Democracy Party. They support lower taxes, free markets, less government interference and personal responsibility. At first I was a bit uncertain as they have no foreign affairs or defense policy, something which is inexcusable for a party standing for federal office. Even more worrying some of them appear to be isolationist with a streak of anti-Americanism. However if by some fluke one of them actually gets elected I can’t see them do any real harm. I expect pro- ANZUS Rudd to win and with a similarly pro- American opposition there will be no opportunity for minor parties to damage national security.
