> LASA 1 Create Your Own Political Party
> Scenario:
> Your family has always been very politically active.  From a young age, you
> have been politically aware.  When you were young, you worked with your
> parents as they supported their political party and you even helped during
> campaigns for the candidates your parents supported.  In college, you were
> a leader of the organization on campus that was part of the political party
> you supported.  This could have been the Young Democrats or the Young
> Republicans or any college group that supported the political party of your
> choice.  Until your exposure at college, you always supported the same
> political party as your parents, but then your views began to change and
> you developed your own  ideas, ideals and expectations.  While you
> continued to remain politically active, you have become more and more
> disillusioned with the current major and third parties and movements on the
> political scene, having studied all thoroughly.  You have come to be
> completely discouraged by the state of the political process as it pertains
> to political parties.  In your opinion,  none of the major or third parties
> truly represents the best interests of the citizens, and you have decided
> to create your own political party.
> Directions. In a 4-5 page Microsoft Word document, include the following:
>    1. Name your political party and evaluate why you have chosen that name.
>    2. Create a symbol for your political party and explain why you have

>    regular broad based political party.  Your platform must have at least
