Reform Party

The Reform Party is the newest national political party whose birth was started in California in September of 1995. In just 18 days, the Reform Party qualified for the ballot, registering over 120,000 members statewide, the fastest qualification effort in California history!

The Reform Party is the new political party for the 21st century. We believe that every vote counts and seek to include all citizens in the political process. Supporters of the Reform Party are voters who no longer believe either political party is representing their concerns and that the parties are too indebted to narrow interests to change the course of politics today. Restoring America's confidence in her government, which is at an all time low, is our highest priority.

The Reform Party stands for:

American Independent Party

The American Independent Party, California affiliate of the U.S. Taxpayers Party, supports:

We oppose proposed revisions in the California Constitution which would limit your right to vote, impair the people's right of initiative, frustrate voter-adopted term limits, make it easier for government to tax and spend, and create non-responsive, bureaucrat dominated regional governments.

We oppose government speculation with Social Security trust funds, and affirmative action programs which substitute racial favoritism for ability.

Support these principles by voting American Independent. End ''politics as usual."

We need to cut government back--way back. Governments exist to protect our lives, liberty and property from criminals and foreign invaders.

Green Party

The Green Party is a new party that has arisen in response to the need for a new political vision free of the failed ideologies of both the right and the left.

The Green Party promotes an ecological vision which understands that all life on our planet is interconnected; that cooperation is more essential to our well-being than competition; and that all people are connected to and dependent upon one another and upon the natural systems of our world. Politics must come to reflect this understanding, and political structures and processes must be based upon it if humanity is to continue to develop and prosper.

The Green Party was founded upon ten key values: Ecological Wisdom, Grassroots Democracy, Social Justice, Nonviolence, Decentralization, Community-based Economics, Feminism, Respect for Diversity, Personal and Global Responsibility and Sustainable Future Focus.
