Many people who do not know that there are many political parties in the USA. Majority of the folks around the world think that there are only the Democrats and Republicans, so far as the political outlook is concerned. When people come to know about the several political parties in USA with different set of agenda and points of view, they wonder why most of them can not come out as a major power on the political arena.
The major two political parties in USA are the republican and the Democrat. The Democrats are known as the oldest political party in USA. They are considered to be liberal, though lately, they have taken a progressive stand advocating social freedom. The Republicans are thought to be a conservative political party that likes to enforce the traditional values to keep the society on right track.
Then there is the Constitution Party. They too are thought to be a conservative party, favoring anti tax, anti gun control, anti immigration and pro-life policies. There is a party called the Green Party. Their view points are obvious from their name. ‘Save our Planet’ is their mission. There is the Libertarian Party advocating individual rights. Then there is the reformist party. They commit themselves to reform the political system. They work to re-establish trust of the public in the government by electing ethical officials.
Apart from these big ones, there are many smaller parties like the America First Party, American Nazi Party, Freedom Socialist Party, Labor Party, The Light Party, The Prohibition Party, Moderate Party, New Party for Socialism and Liberation (PSL) and Peace and Freedom Party, among others. The Peace and Freedom Party is dedicated to democracy, socialism, feminism, ecology, and racial equality. They stand for the lower or middle class working masses. Their motto is to replace competition with cooperation.
