The political right is a wide term which can refer to any politics from the centre-right to the far-right.

On the whole, those on the political right tend to favour a smaller state and lower taxes.

In some countries, it can also mean 'conservative' in terms of social freedom - this could mean promoting traditions such as marriage and family life, or opposing gay-marriage and abortion.

In historical terms, the right has also been associated with the military and various monarchies.
