Here's a Liberal I can get behind.

Tony Abbott is the Prime Minister elect of Australia. He's the leader of the coalition Liberal-National.  It seems that after six years of failed leadership the country has turned to a "Liberal."

Sometimes it depends on where or when you live to decipher what is meant by certain terms.  I guess Liberal here in the states means something quite different then in Australia.

 Let's take a look at his platform.
The elimination of the Carbon Tax
A 'Stop the boats' immigration policy
Refugees already processed will be given temporary visas
Lower taxes

When in office he has consistently voted against relaxing laws on abortion, same-sex marriages and stem cell research.
 By defeating the Labor Party, Mr. Abbott has said "From today I declare Australia is under new management and Australia is now open for business".  

Sort of reminds me of what's going on here in Wisconsin.
