Political Parties

The United States has a two-party system, with the Republicans and Democrats holding most of the elected offices in the government. Despite the historical dominance of these two parties, so-called third parties continue to surface to offer an alternative to voters.

  • Democratic Party
    The left-wing Democrats want to win back control of Congress and elect Al Gore this November.

  • Republican Party
    The conservative Republicans hope to regain the White House and maintain their majority status in Congress.

  • Green Party
    The Greens believe in the environmental protection, social justice and grassroots democracy.

  • Libertarian Party
    This party champions free trade and individual liberty.

  • The Constitution Party advocates a new interpretation of the Constitution that would change current policies on abortion, gun control and immigration.
Local Politics
  • The U.S. Peace Government has taken over the politics of the Natural Law Party. Its members advocate holistic and scientific remedies to the nation's problems. Former Natural Law presidential candidate, John Hagelin, has become president of the U.S. Peace Government, which is building its capital in Washington Township, Kansas.

  • Reform Party
    Founded by Ross Perot, the Reform Party wants to shake up the two-party system and restore faith in the American government.
