Third Party & Independents Archives


There are alternatives to the two corporate parties. There are the obvious ones, like the Greens, the Libertarians, Peace and Freedom, and American Taxpayer. However, there is a fairly broad spectrum of woefully under-recognized parties to consider. Project Vote Smart lists the ones that are offering Presidential candidates for 2004.

Who knew the Federalists were still around? And the National Barking Spider Resurgence Party reminds me of discovering in the early 90’s that California had something like 1500 active political parties. Now THAT is democracy. How could you not be in favor of the Anti-Hypocrisy Party? Or if you’re completely undecided, you could go with the Independent Democratic Republicans. Sometimes we need to take a step back and see the humor in the world.
