Liberal party beliefs
* an equal opportunity for all Australians (they forget to add except if you're Aboriginal, disabled, mentally unwell, if you're poor. They won't fund last 2 years of gonski!)
* preserving Australia's natural beauty (is that a joke?)
* maintaining world peace (spent $400 million last year bombing the Middle East then only wanting to help Christian who need a new home)

I also think it is ok to vote because of a candidate not considering party "beliefs" because I don't know how anyone in SA can physically vote for Libs in the senate when Cory Bernadi is their number 1 there.

They are also pushing a university degree further out of the reach of Australians:
How are they preparing our children for STEM jobs if a university degree is pushed further out of the reach of the average Australian??
I have a DS currently mid way through an Engineering degree. He is looking at moving overseas when he finishes because the jobs just aren't here in the area he wants to specialise in.
I work for a NFP that administers government programs in the health sector. We obtain our funding from a combination of private sources and government contracts. Our biggest programs have been running 10/15 years. Knowing the demographic of a large number of hubbers, I know they are personally benefiting from the programs we administer.
Let me put it this way - the Liberal government have slashed funding for new work and the future of our biggest contract is now in doubt.
Where is the total Lib spend going? They certainly are NOT delivering Gonski promises.
On tax cuts:
Did you see this article I posted last night?

I agree ^^ I was a kid in the 80's and remember them well. They of course still believed in economic rationalism, open markets etc. But they were far less conservative on social issues. They were like today's labor party but they believed the way to provide for the poor, to provide quality public education and health was to also spend on business and concentrate on the markets, trade etc.
Now they are a bunch of right wing wowsers who are part of the 'boys club'. I may have actually considered voting for a Malcolm Fraser.
sighs free markets not open. Too little sleep last night :/

The biggest benefit of the company tax cut is that it will make Australian companies more competitive with international companies, it will give business owners more money to reinvest their profits in capital expenditure or new ventures, or increase wages, or take on more workers etc .. So many opportunities which are not able to be quantified so they are not highlighted in biased media publications.
ETA - the article you posted makes no mention of what companies would do with the extra $ other than paying out dividends which most companies don't actually do! Only the very large multinationals which will not be eligible to the tax cuts anyway!

I dislike plebiscite/referendums so much.
IMO we are electing people to run the country and take the tough decisions.
So go do your job already instead of wasting money in polling people...
Especially on issues like equal rights for all - can't call that a tough decision so go and rule for same sex marriage already.
