Other political parties
In your textbook, a good deal of information in given about the two major political parties, the Republicans and the Democrats. But little is said about the many other political parties found in the United States. These parties are often quite important on the regional, state and local level.

- what it stands for
- why it opposes belonging to either the Republican or Democratic party coalitions
- how many officials it has elected
What do you think the future holds for this party?
