Chris C: Sorry you are wrong. Libertarians are very much pro choice: http://www.lp.org/yourturn/archives/000127.shtml. Basically, Libertarians believe the Constitution clearly states rights are guaranteed to Natural born and Naturalized Citizens, since a fetus has not been born; it has no rights. Libertarians are against government funded abortions, but they are against government funding of anything not defined in the Constitution.
Sorry I guess the Socialist Worker’s Party link got cut off. It is http://www.themilitant.com/index.shtml
I compiled this list based on parties that have a legitimate national standing or have won a major governmental seat in the last ten years. The Independence Party is not truly national, but won the Minnesota Governor’s race a few years back. The Green party is not on this list since it is more of a federation of local and state organizations, and declined significantly after the 2000 election.
I would have included the Communist Party USA and the Socialist Party USA, both have been around for over 100 years; but recently they have had almost no support. It’s funny, I thought I picked two left of center, two right of center, and one moderate party; but I guess some people feel otherwise. I mean you have to admit the Labor party is left of center, right? They strongly advocate social programs and a dramatic increase in the minimum wage.
