Defence:

The general purpose of the Defence Forces is to defend the national interests and it needs to be fully equipped with modern and effective equipment and operating systems. The Defence Force, as all other departments of government, must comply with the same laws of all Australians. The Defence Forces should not be used against Australian citizens (except in the case of internal terrorism or anti-democratic groups) as the primary function of Defence Forces is to protect the citizens of Australia. When necessary the Defence Forces may assist in national emergencies.

Economy:

The economic decisions made for a community determine the financial well-being of each person in that community and from our standpoint a community’s economy is in serious trouble if persons are unable to get a meaningful and sufficiently remunerated job that allows a balance between work and non-work times.

Education:

Quality education is fundamental to a prosperous and equal society. Education must be about inherent objectivity including life skills and training students towards life beyond the education system capable of diverse career choices. The so called 3R’s (Reading, Writing & Arithmetic) and parental rights to have a say in their children’s education must be foundational of the education system. CDP supports Special Religious Education (SRE) and Scripture classes as a mainstream option in our schools, and a basic right for children to explore the faith of their family.

We consider that the whole process of the production and the supply need to be the expression of best practiced policies in the electricity generation and supply of electricity in the world.

Electricity – Prices and Subsidies

Electricity Honesty in the Supply of Electricity

 

Employment:

CDP stands for jobs in all our communities. We support local industry, local jobs, and “build it here” principles. We believe a fair economy and a society is one where each person who wants a job can attain one at a fair remuneration. The CDP understands the importance of a strong and diverse economy that facilitates jobs for the people in all our communities. The CDP is proactively working to advocate for jobs growth for all our communities and will always vote according to this value.

Environment:

Human survival globally is dependent upon the natural world. Our living world is the environment in which we live and we must live with the consequences of how we manage it. Economic paradigm of maximising exploitation of the natural resources must be balanced with a care-taking and sustainability paradigm.The serious state of the situation is demonstrated when in 1988 the government was informed certain toxic firefighting foam is dangerous to the health of humans and only in 2018 is the government acting on that advice it is not good enough at all – see: TOXIN BAN – Newcastleherald Digital Editions, 1_5_2018

Foreign Affairs and Trade:

There is a delicate balance with trade and foreign affairs but the whims of nations must not prevent a pragmatic and considered approach to each nation. AS far as possible the Australian Embassies should be in the capital cities of the host nations or where the national parliament sits in another place as close to there as possible. The free trade agreements must be examined in detail and where there is an actual disadvantage for Australia and her workers then that deal needs amendments or to be overturned. No foreign power should reduce the sovereign nature of Australia, if it is found that agreements in place do reduce the sovereign nature of Australia those agreements must be amended or overturned.

Foreign Affairs – Israel and the Two State Solution 

Trade – Free Trade Agreements

 

Gambling:

Numerous studies have proven that Gambling has a negative social impact related to the associated addictions, financial deprivation of dependents and criminal aspects. Although recognising that is one of those things that can be a source of harmless entertainment for controlled individuals, the social and socio-economic downsides are significant enough that a robust examination of the gambling industry is warranted, considering; raising the age access limits, advertising restrictions in line with tobacco, and poker machine return %s to players.

Gambling – live betting and poker machines

Gambling – online and highroller gambling

Health:

Health Care should be available, accessible,timely, and affordable to all our communities.
The CDP is committed to ensuring we do everything within our power to ensure our Governments deliver a first-class health system for the broad population of residents in all our cities, urban areas, and regional areas.

Housing:

The development of housing affordability in Australia has historically been maintained by housing supplied through the government department – Housing Commission, which successfully housed the population over two generations in affordable adequate housing. The abandonment of this to economic rationalist market forces (private developers) has resulted in the housing affordability crisis. We believe a return to government housing department focusing on building (as opposed to it currently being a rental facility) is essential to first home affordability. A review of the government charges on land developments is urgently needed.

Housing – Affordability

Housing – Decentralization

Housing – Developer and Builder’s Warrantees

Housing – Foreign Ownership

Immigration:

Each nation needs to manage its immigration so that there is a balance of visitors and immigrants that will contribute positively to the nation. In the last several years we have seen a rise in immigration that has outpaced infrastructure and potentially affecting housing affordability, health affordability, employment declines, and a strain on the Social Security System resulting in community disquiet towards some new immigrants. This has the potential to change the character of the Australian society. Immigration needs to be carefully managed, taken on the advice of demographic experts and not growth economics.

Infrastructure:

There is real social and economic value to have strong infrastructure programs though this must be steady and affordable. It is pertinent to remember that projects should be planned to facilitate future generations, not just short term objectives. One of the huge imperatives must be that all infrastructures must become more accessible to the elderly and to those with disabilities. The urgent implementation of recommended infrastructure safety systems is a must as soon as possible after identification of access and safety concerns.
The urgent implementation of recomended rail safety systems is a must for all our rail services as soon as possible. We should never have this situation happen again on any of our rail networks throughout Australia.  Richmond Train accident

Law and Order:

Law and order is a foundation of society’s social order and business confidence. As such it needs to be balanced with a moral social code, an effective law enforcement, and an efficient judiciary and a wisely governed penal system that seeks to restore convicted persons where possible to become good contributors to society.

Marriage:

The traditional marriage between one man and one woman has held a special place in the life of our communities for centuries and it seems unwise to discard this unique definition of marriage. It is also notable that this traditional man/woman marriage is supported by non-religious groups, atheists, and throughout all faiths, and as it represents a broad section of the population, should be protected as a proven contribution to social and democratic stability. We do note the changes that have been made to the Marriage Act and we are carefully examining the full consequences of this decision.

Mining:

The Christian Democratic party supports responsible mining

Mining – Coal Seam Gas.

Mining -Coal

Small Business:

The small business is the engine room of the business world and employs many people and yet they suffer unnecessarily at the hands of Government  and big businesses and corporations. They do not always hold the clout to effectively maintain and uphold their rights, we are very concerned about this and we will push back against this for the small business person. 

Small Business – Financial Security

Social Security:

The responsibility of a civilized society is to care for the elderly, the disabled and the disadvantaged via a valid “safety net”. In Australia this has been managed through the Department of Social Security and policy needs to ensure a sustainable and fair safety net is available for those who genuinely need it.
