    Looks like they will make an attempt to actually stick around after the Anderson campaign, there was alot of talk that they would largely dissipate after this years presidential election. It will be interesting to see how many local and state level candidates they run if any next year.

    Glad they’re continuing onward! The more third parties exist, the more choices voters have in November.

    I’m fairly certain the Democrats are pleased that yet another left wing party will be competing for the progressive vote. That just makes them all less viable.

    What distinguishes them from Green Party ideologically?

    Guarantee they still use every dirty trick in the book to keep the JP off the ballot.

    @4

    Not a great deal, really.

  6. El Chupacabra

    So why not unite?

    Such a waste of time. I hope the people involved with this at least learn a few things as this effort fails over the next few years.

    They should just join the Greens.

    Oh, I hope it’s livestreamed; A parade of articulate people.

    I believe they’re people who agree with the GP’s ideology in general, but don’t like the Green name. Also, their focus seems less focused on environmentalism and more broad-based progressive.

    It’s like the various socialist parties. Same general idea, just different visions.

    As far as whether or not they should unite, I’ll let smarter people figure that out. I will say as a Libertarian, I have no problem with the Objectivist Party, former Boston Tea Party, Twelve Visions Party, Country Party, etc. I welcome more voices being heard.

    It makes sense if there are meaningful differences. Libertarians, Greens, Socialists, Constitutionalists etc. If the differences can’t be clearly articulated and come down to emphasis, name choice or personalities, they would be best served by combining.

    Did libertarians lose anything of value when the Boston Tea Party went under? I can’t see how.

    I suppose the Justice Party folks have the same problems with the Greens that Nader had – in other words they are more exponents of social liberalism than the regulation of industry required for environmental protection in the Green view.

    That is a rather important difference.
