How I came to find the Green Party is by my ceramic high school teacher. Since, my family rarely spoke about politics, I found conversations with my teacher intriguing when he talk about his view on the world and politics. While attending his class, introduce me to his political party, which is the Green Party. I found the platforms for the Green Party to be agreeable to most of my views,since I am moderately liberal and they are Hard-Core Liberal. Also, I disagreed with the two party system I found myself registering as a member of the Green Party.

Secondly, the Green Party feels that all people should have the rights and opportunity equally. Regardless of race, class, sex, and age. They believe that we should confront organization and society to remove these barriers. Barriers such as the male domination work force. In other words, they strongly believe that we should legally require hiring women and minorities. In addition, they view that health care is a human right and should be available to everyone.
