Minor parties - Christian heritage party

the CHP is one of the most well thought out of the small parties probably because it has been around for a while and has been close to gaining seats in parliment. they follow standard conservative theory combined with conservative moral positions. This means that if you are a economic conservative and a social liberal you can vote ACT but a social conservative and a economic conservative you could vote for someone like CHNZ (with national in the middle). Of course this is a very specific kind of moral conservatism in that is it Christian.

CHNZ wants to cut taxes, reduce debt, trade freely, user pays basically a national act platform with some aditional policies thrown in in orer to make the family unit more important and to support generally christian morals.

Overall - I wouldnt vote for them - but their policies are generally sensible nothing that I wont end up critiquing in other posts.
