Political Diversity

The political diversity of the American people is vast and colorful. Everyone is aware of the dominance of the Democrat and Republican parties, but many Americans don’t know what the fundamental differences are, and why there are several other parties scattered across the political spectrum.
Democrats have in recent history been primarily concerned with the causes of the common man. They usually support the side of labor, are strong on civil liberties, and generally promote a socially liberal platform. Democrats usually support moderate taxes to finance government services for those in need.
Republicans tend to support the interests of business owners (large and small), as well as the financial industry. They support socially conservative policies over civil liberties. Republicans usually support lower taxes and less government services for those in need.
Libertarians believe in only the most minimal involvement from the federal government. They believe in extremely low taxation, the abolition of most government services and agencies, and that the bulk of governing should fall on the shoulders of local and state governments. Libertarians also believe in government silence on most all social issues.
The Green Party tends to have the most liberal agenda of the largest parties. They are socially and fiscally liberal, and concentrate more efforts on environmental issues than any other major party.
The Constitution Party tends to mirror the Republican agenda on many issues, but is even more socially conservative in ways. They believe in pure Christian nationalism, which means they wish to exert religious influence to gain control over our secular government.
