Third Party Political Groups

There are a few American political parties other than just Democrats and Republicans. Actually, there are around fifty; some of them are only statewide, while others were once pretty popular. Some even had federal representatives when they were founded. Here are a few of the more shocking groups, starting with my personal favorite: The World Union of Free Enterprise National Socialists. Sounds like a nice name right? It was founded in 1959 as the American Nazi Party. “Hey guys, what’s a nicer word for Nazi?” Here are some of the other parties to emerge in the U.S. that deserve to be filed securely in the trash compactor:

  • Marxist–Leninist Organization (The leftovers of Canada’s communism party split.)
  • Revolutionary Communist Party (AKA “Maoism”)
  • The Prohibition Party (Still nominating presidential candidates for every election.)
  • American Third Position Party (The name sounds innocuous, but it’s actually a party promoting white nationalism, anti-intervention foreign policy, and anti-immigration laws [there’s also a lot of negative emphasis on Jews for some reason; sound familiar?].)
  • Objectivist Party (Party made popular by Ayn Rand and founded in 2008, seeking to repeal income tax and the 16th Amendment.)

The other non-mainstream parties that deserve a second look, and even a successul presidential candidate at some point, are:

  • The Green Party (Supporting and promoting government leaders with focus on energy, ecological issues, and alternative sources of fuel)
  • The Pirate Party (Political movement against Internet censorship, and copyright infringement)
  • The Marijuana Party (Guess what they promote?)
  • The Modern Whig Party (Founded by verterans of the ongoing war in the Middle East, in 2009)

So if you’re struggling with your decision to vote in the next election, remember, there are plenty of choices. You could go in favor of the stoners and pot-heads, or vote for the renewal of Prohibitionism. On the other hand, there’s also the up and coming white nationalists of the American Nazi Party, –oh, I mean the “American Third Position Party”. Sorry, –hard to keep those two straight. Whatever you decide, please, vote for someone. We have the right to choose our nation’s leaders, and we should. And afterwards, we should stop bitching, because, after all, it was our choice.
