WHY AUSTRALIA NEEDS TO PUT FAMILIES FIRST
We believe ordinary Australians are deeply concerned about the future for families and family values. That’s why Family First is working hard to help build strong families, strong values, and a strong Australia.
1. STRONG FAMILIES
We represent traditional conservative economic policies for a fairer and stronger Australia – a country where everyone has the opportunity to find a place to live, a job and a safe environment to raise a family.
2. STRONG VALUES
Family First believes in the importance of values like telling the truth, living within your means, hard work, respect, courtesy, compassion, courage, generosity. And we aim to live by these values in our personal and professional lives.
3. STRONG AUSTRALIA
Family First believes property rights, free markets, voluntary arrangements and effective safety nets provide the best opportunity for Australia and Australians to prosper. We understand business and how markets work; how and why investment decisions are made; how real jobs are created; and that ‘barriers to entry’ for getting a job cause unemployment.
A House of Review
"Tasmania needs Senators who aren't obliged to vote with either the Government or the Opposition, but will vote sensibly based on what's genuinely best for families and Tasmania. Family First senators support and improve good laws, and will block bad laws. There's no checks and balances if the government is reviewing itself."
