The United States political system is made up of two major political parties. Everyone knows about the Democratic and Republican parties. However, there are also political parties that branch off of these parties and have their own beliefs and political agendas. One of those parties is known as the Green Party.
The Green Party to an outsider might appear to be a small branch of the Democratic Party but it really has some extremely different views. Here is a look at some of the views and political agendas of the Green Party.
The Iraq War. The Green Party believes that there should be an immediate withdrawal of the troops in Iraq. When the troops are gone there will be a oversight committee that is provided by the United Nations.
Privacy. The Green Party wants an immediate end to the Patriot Act and any other laws that invade the privacy of citizens. The Green Party sees these types of laws as extra ways for the government to invade the personal lives of its citizens.
Military Budgets. The Green Party would ideally want to take a majority of the money that goes to the military and send it over to environmental and social issues. This is because the party believes that there should be more support for living creatures than promoting the destruction of other societies.
Environmental Factors. The Green Party believes that the United States should be more involved with environmental concerns. They believe that there should be more restrictions on greenhouse gases and companies that are responsible for these gases.
Abortions. The Green Party would ideally want to provide all women with access to safe abortions.
