Overview

The Natural Law Party is America's fastest growing political party. Founded in 1992, the party ran more than four hundred candidates on the ballot in forty-eight states in 1996 and received several million votes. The Natural Law Party offers a comprehensive prevention-oriented platform that appeals to most Americans. The platform supports:

-Renewable energy production and energy conservation
-Sustainable agriculture practices to increase crop yields and profitability without hazardous chemical fertilizers and pesticides
-Field tested crime prevention and rehabilitation programs
-Educational reform that stimulates the creative genius of the student
-Lowered taxes through cost-effective solutions to problems, rather than by cutting essential services
-Election reform that stops special-interest control of our politics

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Roth, press secretary of the Natural Law Party, proposes giving the American voter an alternative to the two mainstream political parties: the Natural Law Party, founded in 1992 and now set to run hundreds of candidates in the 1998 elections. The book is divided into eight sections with headings like "The Battle," "The Principles," and "The Applications." Within each section are chapters such as "Does Politics Matter Anymore?" and "Media Tips from the Front Lines," to name just a couple. Roth states the party position across a broad spectrum of political and social issues, showing its emphasis on an "organic" approach to social issues. Solutions to national problems are described in some detail, and transcendental meditation is a major factor in many of them. As the author and many others have pointed out, the positions taken by third parties often become planks of major party platforms within a few years. If for no other reason, the Natural Law Party and other third parties deserve our scrutiny in the run-up to the 2000 elections. Recommended for large public libraries.--Joseph Toschik, Half Moon Bay P.L., CA

What People are Saying About This

Marianne Williamson
Third parties have contributed huge ideas to American politics, from the abolition of slavery, to child-labor laws. Their relatively recent exile to the margins of American political life is highly unfortunate. The Natural Law Party: A Reason To Vote gives us the information we need to bring third parties back to center stage.
