Up to now most New Zealanders have not thought too much about their freedom. We have taken for granted that we live in a democracy and our fundamental rights would always be protected. However, the past few months have been a big shakeup. We have come to realise how tenuous these rights are and how easily a Government can pull them out from under us if they so wish.
This has propelled freedom and democracy to the forefront of our campaign. The party has been working hard to create a Constitution that we could bring into Government with us. We need our basic rights such as freedom of speech, freedom of movement, freedom to choose medical treatment and freedom to choose with whom we associate enshrined in law and held above all other laws.
