The Natural Law Party

        America the land of the "Greatest" democracy has known to man. The land of equal opportunity, constitutions built on debate, and were a three party system can in fact consist of over ten different political groups. There are the Democrats in party one, Republicans in party two, and any and everyone else who do not consider themselves apart of parties one and two. The third party I chose to explore and bring to the forefront is the "Natural Law Party".

        The Natural Law Party was formed in Great Britain on March 15th 1992, in response to widespread dissatisfaction with the existing political parties and to bring innovative, scientifically proven solutions to the nation's problems.
