Low Taxes. Small Government. Individual Responsibility.

Fighting for less government and more freedom

The Government is comprised of politicians and public servants with no special insight or wisdom. Despite that, it constantly tells us what is best for us and how to run our lives. It ties up businesses in red tape - preventing them from investing, expanding and employing.

The Liberal Democrats believe government have neither the expertise, nor the rights to tell people how to run their lives. People should be free to make their own choices and accept responsibility for the consequences, so long as nobody else is harmed.

The Liberal Democrats are, first and foremost, a party for people. We hold as our highest aim the creation of a society that is concerned with the advancement of human flourishing. Any course of action that inhibits or constrains human flourishing must be held as antithetical to our cause. The snake-oil salesmen who talk of freedom but seek only to advance their own power must be exposed for the frauds they are. It is liberty, the freedom to follow one’s own natural inclinations, that provides for the greatest degree of human flourishing.

An extract from the manifesto by former National President Gabriel Buckley.
