RENUA's approach is based on common sense politics that respects free speech, free enterprise, conservative and patriotic values. Theses are the values of our parents and grandparents and have enduring and widespread appeal and support internationally. However they are currently under-represented in Ireland due to the influence of a mainstream media that has become dominated by intolerant liberal and left-wing 'progressive' values that denigrate the family, community cohesion, patriotic nationalism and independence.

RENUA believes in the value of the Nation State and having an independent Ireland. Yoram Hazony is the author of an important book called 'The Virtue of Nationalism' that shows why nation states are the true drivers of economic innovation, security and cultural development.
PROTECTING FAMILIES & CHILDHOOD
RENUA places family and protection of children at the centre of its policies. We are totally opposed to the push to introduce the UN's 'Comprehensive Sexuality Education Agenda' by the Fine Gael government into Irish schools. This push involves imposing compulsory and extreme ideology-based sex education on children in all primary and secondary schools including teaching 4 year-olds about masturbation, 9 year-olds about making "conscious decisions about whether to have sex or not”, about abortion as birth control and being made ‘porn literate’.
