In the upcoming pages, I have given at least a brief description of the Political

1. American Reform Party - free-standing, national group that formally split
from Ross Perot and his Dallas-based Reform Party.; On October 3 to 5,
1997, an historic convention of state Reform Pprinciples of reform espoused
by Ross Perot, the new party has formally split from Mr. Perot and his
Dallas-based Reform Party. arty officials was held in Schaumburg, IL. The

For some reason, I could not even be attentive to this info. I guess it is a
predjudice instilled in me since a child
3. Confederate Party of America - Now this caught my eye. I am a
member of the Confederate Sons of America (ggrandfather and ggrandfather
were Confederate Soldiers)so I thought this one would really be worth
looking into, but as it turnd out, I do not believe a lot of common sense is
used here. The Confederate Party believes in abolishing the IRS and
establishing a National Sales Tax (NST) and is supposed to be a party of
common sense. The Confederate Party believes in a government that our
founding fathers designed -- a government that serves us -- the people. The
citizens of the United States are not servants to the government. Americans
should not be enslaved nor dependent upon a government that consistently
violated the Constitution of the United States of America. Election after
election has given us Republican and Democratic administrations that are
incapable of managing the nation's affairs competently, justly, or lawfully.
The Confederate Party supports State's Rights and ensuring the unalienable
right of every American to Life, Liberty, Property, and the Pursuit of
Happiness by defending the Constitution of the United States of America. We
believe in abolishing the IRS and establishing a National Sales Tax
4. Constitutionalist Party - new political party dedicated to the
advancement of human liberty and adherence to the U.S. Constitution.
5. Democratic Party ∑Democratic Socialists of America ,
Democratic Party stands not only for working people, but for bringing people who are
poor and disenfranchised into the system to make us all a part of a better society.
Democrats often refer to themselves as the Part of Hope, and refer to their counterpart,
The Republicans, as The Party of Memory. Democrats believe in moving on. As Senator
Ted Kennedy once said, "...the fundamental appeal of the Democratic Party has always
been grounded in the principles of fairness,opportunity , equal justice for ail and a firm
belief that the mission of government is not to stand on the sidelines,but to be active in
pursuing these goals for the people." (4)
Our family has been democrats for generations but when I ask my dad for a
definition of a democrat. His reply was simply , " Hes a damn good man".
You don't even want to know his definition of a republican.
6. Green Party This Party's first priority is said to be value-based politics, in
contrast to a system extolling exploitation, consumption, and non-sustainable
competition.They believe in an alternative, independent politics and active,
responsible government. They believe in empowering citizens and
communities and offer hope and a call to action.
7. Labor Party , A dream it is, sounds good but would never work
1. Amend the Constitution to Guarantee Everyone a Job at a Living Wage
2. Pay Laid-off Workers Two Months Severance for Every Year of Service
3. Restore Workers Rights to Organize, Bargain and Strike
