People's Party (United States)
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The People's Party, also known as the Populist Party or the Populists, was an agrarian-populist political party in the United States. For a few years, 1892–96, it played a major role as a left-wing force in American politics. It was merged into the Democratic Party in 1896; a small independent remnant survived until 1908. It drew support from angry farmers in the West and South and operated on the left-wing of American politics. It was highly critical of capitalism, especially banks and railroads, and allied itself with the labor movement.
Established in 1891, as a result of the Populist movement, the People's Party reached its zenith in the 1892 presidential election, when its ticket, composed of James B. Weaver and James G. Field, won 8.5% of the popular vote and carried five states (Colorado, Idaho, Kansas, Nevada and North Dakota), and the 1894 House of Representatives elections, when it took over 10% of the vote. Built on a coalition of poor, white cotton farmers in the South (especially North Carolina, Alabama and Texas) and hard-pressed wheat farmers in the Plains states (especially Kansas and Nebraska), the Populists represented a radical crusading form of agrarianism and hostility to elites, cities, banks, railroads, and gold.
The party sometimes allied with labor unions in the North and Republicans in the South. In the 1896 presidential elections the Populists endorsed the Democratic presidential nominee, William Jennings Bryan, adding their own vice presidential nominee. By joining with the Democrats, the People's Party lost its independent identity and rapidly withered away.
The terms "populism" and "populist" have been used in the 20th and 21st centuries to describe anti-elitist appeals against established interests or mainstream parties, referring to both the political left and right.
People's Party (United States, 1971)
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The People's Party was a political party in the United States, founded in 1971 by various individuals and state and local political parties, including the Peace and Freedom Party, Commongood People's Party, Country People's Caucus, Human Rights Party, Liberty Union, New American Party, New Party, and No Party. The party's goal was to present a united anti-war platform for the coming election.
The People's Party ran for the presidency two times, once in U.S. presidential election, 1972 with Dr. Benjamin Spock (an American pediatrician and author of parenting books) as their candidate and once in the U.S. presidential election, 1976 with Margaret Wright as their presidential candidate and Spock running for vice president.
After the election, the party moved to become a loose coalition, but was soon defunct, with most of its founding parties also dissolved.

How do we get rid of the Republicans and the Democrats? Or as I like to call them the crooks and the criminals. They are not about to just give up power, but we can make it hurt for them to hold onto power.
We need to offer a better alternative
What I'm suggesting is very simple. No protest or revolution or armed militias are needed. I believe we'd all like to see a viable alternative to the political fiasco masquerading as our leaders.
