Libertarian Party

The Libertarian Party is an American national political party that reflects, represents and promotes the ideas and philosophies of libertarianism and free-market, laissez-faire capitalism. The Libertarian Party was conceived at meetings in the home ... of David F. Nolan in Westminster, Colorado in 1971. The official formation of the Libertarian Party occurred on December 11, 1971 in Colorado Springs, Colorado. The founding of the party was prompted in part due to concerns about the Vietnam War, conscription, and the end of the gold standard.Although there is not an explicitly-labeled "left" or "right" designation of the party, many members, such as 2012 presidential nominee Gary Johnson, state that they are more socially liberal than the Democrats, but more fiscally conservative than the Republicans. The party has generally promoted a classical liberal platform, in contrast to the social liberal and progressive platform of the Democrats and the more conservative platform of the Republicans. Current policy positions include lowering taxes, allowing people to opt-out of Social Security, abolishing welfare, ending the prohibition of illegal drugs, and supporting gun ownership rights   more

Green Party

The Green Party of the United States is a national political party in the United States founded in 1984 as a federation of state green parties. With its founding, the Green Party of the United States became the primary national Green organization in...  that country, eclipsing the Greens/Green Party USA, which emphasized non-electoral movement building. The Association of State Green Parties, a forerunner organization, first gained widespread public attention during Ralph Nader's United States presidential campaigns in 1996 and 2000. The party has no current representation in the U.S. House of Representatives nor the Senate and controls no governorships nor other state-wide elected positions. At the state legislature level, until 2014 the party controlled one seat in the Arkansas House of Representatives. A number of Greens around the United States hold positions as city and town council members and mayors   more

Constitution Party

The Constitution Party is a right-wing nationalist political party in the United States.The party believes that the United States is a Christian nation founded on the basis of the Bible and that jurisprudence should be restored to what the party cla... ims is its "Biblical foundations". It has been described by its critics as a theocratic party, as with its predecessor, the U.S. Taxpayers Party. The Constitution Party advocates a platform which reflects the Party's understanding of the principles set forth in the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution of the United States, the Bible, and the Bill of Rights.The party was founded as the "U.S. Taxpayers' Party" by Howard Philips in 1991. Phillips was also the party's candidate in the 1992, 1996 and 2000 presidential elections. The party's name was changed to the Constitution Party in 1999; however, some state affiliate parties are known under different names. The party's platform is predicated on the party's understanding of the original intent of the nation's founding documents. The party absorbed the American Independent Party, which was founded for George Wallace's 1968 presidential campaign   more

Gotta wonder how many Green Party advocates aren't just urban hippies but actually live in the great outdoors. Most of them couldn't hack the rugged individualist lifestyle if they wanted to. They still think nature is full of rainbows and sunshine while forgetting it's really a nasty, brutish, and rough and tumble place.

The constitution party is a somewhat racist and theocratic party. In no way should one support that party.
Pythasis says2015-05-11T18:46:23.1251584-05:00
@Daktoria You don't necessarily have to live outdoors constantly to want to preserve nature.
Pythasis says2015-05-11T19:06:55.4897188-05:00
I took it again and got 95% this time.

I agree with Libertarians, but sometimes they take their freedom overboard.
triangle.128k says2015-05-12T14:14:44.0723071-05:00
@tajshar2k How so?
Varrack says2015-05-12T14:19:32.0690936-05:00
I don't get libertarians. "Let's legalize drugs despite the fact that they lead to worse public health and more crashes because it means more FREEDOM!"
tajshar2k says2015-05-12T14:20:46.6148055-05:00
@triangle.128k They want to stop making seat-belts mandatory, because its the persons choice to be safe or not. Somethings like this shouldn't be given choices.
GarlicBred24 says2015-05-12T14:23:29.1307085-05:00
I don't get Republicans. "They are against killing fetuses, but are okay with murdering thousands of innocent people in some country.!"
tajshar2k says2015-05-12T14:31:30.3032773-05:00
*wearing seatbelts
triangle.128k says2015-05-12T14:49:09.5943320-05:00
@Varrack The idea of legalizing or decriminalizing some of the more dangerous drugs is to help people stop using them over punishing them. Through education and rehab for example.
triangle.128k says2015-05-12T14:51:01.1782708-05:00
@tajshar2k I think you're confusing minarchists for libertarians. I definitely don't support letting people drive without a seat belt.
triangle.128k says2015-05-12T14:51:29.0391564-05:00
Not all libertarians are minarchists, but minarchists are libertarians.
