in the inalienable rights and freedoms of all people: we work towards a lean government that minimises interference in our daily lives and maximises individual and private-sector initiative;
in government that nurtures and encourages its citizens through initiative, rather than putting limits on people through the punishing disincentive of burdensome taxes and the stifling structures of Labor’s corporate state and bureaucratic red tape;
in those most basic freedoms of parliamentary democracy – the freedom of thought, worship, speech and association;
in a just and humane society in which the importance of the family and the role of law and justice are maintained;
in equal opportunity and tolerance for all Australians;
in the encouragement and the facilitation of wealth so that all may enjoy the highest possible standards of living, health, education and social justice;
that, wherever possible, government should not compete with an efficient private sector, and that businesses and individuals – not government – are the true creators of wealth and employment;
in the Australian Constitution;
in preserving Australia’s natural beauty and environment for future generations; and
that our nation has a constructive role to play in maintaining world peace and democracy through alliances with other free nations.
In short, we believe in individual freedom and free enterprise.
