Katter is known as an unabashed social conservative. On economic issues, like his father, Katter retains elements of 1950s Labor policy, including opposition to privatisation and economic deregulation. Katter is firmly in support of indigenous labour being used to build indigenous housing.
In 1997, Katter advocated changing the Child Support Scheme to lessen the financial maintenance obligations for non-custodial parents.

He presented a document titled 20 points and asked the major parties to respond before deciding which party he would support.

He does not support same-sex marriage. His response to the Australian Marriage Law Postal Survey result went viral, as Katter found the issue of crocodiles killing people in North Queensland more pressing.
[Quote by Katter in the Chamber 25 October 2017, Katter Told Burke] If I’m called left wing outside this chamber, I’ll take defamation action I can assure you! There have been very few times in this place I’ve seen a person who can get such unanimity between the left and right so effectively. I would not like to be a country member of parliament running in the forthcoming federal elections. Everyone regularly goes overseas these days—I’m one of the few who doesn’t—and people from the country, by their very nature, have firearms. I mean, it is an absolute necessity. It’s not what you like to do; it’s what you have to do. When you have guns around all the time, you forget when you put some brass in your pocket.
