Which Party in the United States would you vote for?





deanhills
Which Party in the United States would you vote for, if any? Discussion of choices is encouraged, obviously. Any party of the US you like. Forget tactical voting. If you're not American, vote anyway.

Here is a list:

Quote:
Democratic Party
Republican Party

Constitution Party
Green Party of the United States
Libertarian Party

America First Party
American Party
American Independent Party
America's Independent Party
American Nazi Party
American Report Party
Boston Tea Party
Communist Party of USA
Freedom Socialist Party/Radical Women
Indpendence Party
Independent American Party
Labor Party
Light Party
Modern Whig Party
National Socialist Movement
Objectivist Party
Party for Socialism and Liberation
Peace and Freedom Party
Prohibition Party
Reform Party
Social Democrats, USA
Socialist Party USA
Socialist Action
Socialist Equality Party
Socailist Labor Party
Socialist Workers' Party
US Marijuana Party
US Pacifist Party
Veterans Party of America
Workers World Party
Working Families Party

American Patriot Party
Democratic Socialists of America
Libertarian National Socialist Green Party
Pansexual Peace Party
Progressive Labor Party
Revolutionary Communist Party USA
The Third Party
Workers Party, USA
World Socialist Party of the USA

More info about the above parties can be found at: http://www.politics1.com/parties.htm

The Party I can best identify with is the Libertarian Party in the US. It favours minimally regulated, laissez-faire markets, strong civil liberties, minimally regulated migration across borders, and non-interventionism in foreign policy that respects freedom of trade and travel to all foreign countries. I don't know who its leaders are though except their names, and would probably need to learn more about them, but at a first glance, it is the closest I could get to any of the parties in the list that I had a brief look at.

I would vote for the social democrats, as that is the party that seems to stand for my ideals.

Libertarian, usually, though some individuals have views on particular issues that I disagree with. Even then, I'll usually vote for the party, and hope it gets the 5% of the vote that will get it government funding for the next election, even when I don't agree with the particular candidate.

What is the candidate like? I've never heard of Bill Redpath before? That is the current leader isn't it?

That's just it... it doesn't really matter, because there's no realistic chance of him getting elected without public funds. My hope is just that the party gets enough of a vote to get public funds next time around.

It's funny, I hear more and more people identifying their views with the Libertarian party.
I too like a LOT of what they support and dislike a few things they support. Guess
there is no perfect party.....

Within the next few decades, if things keep on going like they are, I expect the Libertarian party to largely replace the Republican party, while the Democratic party becomes even more socialist.

Would be a good start if the Libertarian Party could find a very charismatic leader that can catch the imagination of the people. Maybe they should headhunt someone, as who knows, maybe the time is ripe "now", who knows, maybe they are already working on that.

Libertarian, Constitution or Green Party (or whichever party Ron Paul decides to run for in 2012 if he runs for President again).

Not being an American, I don't really know what each of the parties offer, but here in Canada , I tend to go for the Conservatives, so if I had to vote in the states, I would probably go for the equivalent of that Razz . Pretty much every history course I've taken in high school, the teacher has told us about which American parties are equivalent to ours , but I always end up forgetting.

Although non-American, I would probably vote Democrat in any US elections.

Perhaps it is because I think that they are less hostile in their attitute to the outside world than the Republicans. However, that might be more to do with the personality of a particular President than the politics of a party.

I would vote based on the policies they promise to implement and the likelihood of the presidential candidate actually implemented those policies.

Democratic Party

Comparing the other parties in US, democratic party is more democratic. In the case of Foreign policy
democrats policy is better for world and US.
