It can't really be translated like that.
Policy wise they're generally in favour of minimising the state and privatising what they can. They're in favour generally as well of tax cuts for larger companies. However the situation in the UK is of course, very different to that of the US; for example we have a public health service (for the moment) where as the US currently doesn't have one [although I didn't keep up with US politics, did Obama get the health care insurance bill through?]
