1. Julia was elected to her position in a completely legitimate way under the Australian system.
2. As was the Labor party, just in the form of a minority Government.
3. The Liberal party also needed the Greens and Independents on their side, but they chose to side with Labor instead! Doesn’t that tell you something!
4. Julia HAS volunteered her whole life in fact, just in a unionised capacity. Abbott only did those things for show any way. Who’s the better politician? One that volunteers just to be seen to volunteer or one who refuses to participate in such political theatre and would rather focus on running the country?
5. She’s a politician, not an economist. Why on earth would Gillard need an economics degree?
6. I don’t know why Gillard’s marital status, lack of children and religious faith is being used against her. Honestly, why don’t we vote for who is actually going to provide the best advancements for the next few years (of which the Liberal Party has scarcely provided) then squabbling over who conforms more readily to right wing’s strict, backward ideals.
7. This image is full of misunderstanding and misrepresentation of facts. Any document that compares ‘wife’ to ‘de-facto’ as if one is better than the other is not worthy of my full attention.
P.S. If all the Liberal Party can do is criticise Gillard for being unmarried, I think it should be obvious which party is the better candidate for office.

Check out these words from Robert Kelly.
Hi guys, my name’s Robert Kelly and I WAS running for the Vice President of the well known Pulse party. However, as many of you already know, we were disqualified from running under the name ‘Pulse’ as another party had already registered under this name. What you don’t know is that the President running for this fake Pulse party is Zac ‘Dexter’ Draheim – who is Colin Finke’s best friend from Cromwell College. Ben ‘Husky’ Durance is running as Secretary of the party, and is also a close friend of Colin’s, and the rest of the executive positions in this fake party are Cromwell College residents. No doubt Fresh will remove these boys from these positions after this post goes out and replace them with new ones, but please do not be fooled as they will only be replaced by other secret Fresh supporters. Party nominations have now closed, so when you see ‘Pulse’ on the ballot sheet, just know that it is a fake Pulse and if you tick that box, or any other box that appears on the ballot sheet, you are in reality, supporting Fresh.
Here is an image of the notice on the UQU Notice boards for evidence. Zach Daheim is actually listed under ‘Union Newspaper’ for PULSE, not President.
P.S. How confident are you in the competance of our Returning Officer that she misspells ‘candidate’ on this public document?
Here’s another document drawn from a good old Facebook stalk, if you can read it.
