History

A 1997 faction from the larger Reform Party of the United States, started by Ross Perot in 1995. Perot had all but nominated himself for the 1996 run after enjoying a third party record breaker showing in the 1992 election, where he participated in all three presidential debates and at one point enjoyed a lead according to polls, withdrew from the election when bad press came and re-entered to garner 14% of the actual vote. Emphasis is on balancing the budget while maintaining a strong defense and some protectionism (Anti-NAFTA).

MERITS

DRAWBACKS

The word “Reform” is now associated with the Reform party and its factions, with its ideology. And besides the name is taken.
