Labor’s commitment to fairness at work, access to quality education no matter what a person’s circumstances and a firm belief that we should all have the same opportunities in life underpin what we do.
Labor has always aimed to, in the words of former Prime Minister Gough Whitlam:
"Promote equality, to involve the people of Australia in the decision-making processes of our land, and to liberate the talents and uplift the horizons of the Australian people."
|Liberal Party||1||24||17||Liberal||Labor||Greens|| In the inalienable rights and freedoms of all peoples; and 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 incentive, rather than putting limits on people through the punishing disincentives 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 is maintained. In short, we simply believe in individual freedom and free enterprise; and if you share this belief, then ours is the Party for you.

Loss of jobs, business, industry and manufacturing closing down. Immigration and Multiculturalism - have we ever been asked? Foreign Investment, how much of Australia do we really own? Farming sector collapsing due to imports and regulations. Political Correctness. Carbon Tax.Illegal boat people, our border protection and national security.The cost of living.
