As you know, the United States political system is dominated by two political parties, the Republicans and the Democrats. Therefore, it is called a "two-party system." There are many smaller parties that are active and support their own candidates. They are called "third parties" or "minor parties."

Your assignment is to read about some of these "third parties" (click on an image to go to the party's home page) and explain which one you would choose to be a member of if you had to choose to be a member of a party other than the Republican or Democratic party. Put the party you chose as the subject of your post. Give your reasons why you would chose the party you chose. If you prefer a third party that is not linked on this page, you may still choose it. Remember, you are not allowed to choose Republican or Democrat.

Click on Discussion to give your answer. Make sure you reply to someone else's choice.
