The Natural Law Party: this year with the second presidential candidacy of Ross Perot. And the first Green Party presidential nomination of Ralph Nader, more attention than ever has been focussed on alternative party candidates. Depending on what state you live in, you may in fact, face a choice among six presidential candidates if you vote in november. One candidate who’s been flying almost unperceived beneath the mass media radar screen is Dr. John Hagelin, a physicist running on the Natural Law Party ticket. The Natural Law Party is running more than a thousand candidates for federal and local offices this fall and is holding its annual convention here in Washington this week. Pacifica’s National Affairs Correspondent Larry Bensky spoke with Dr. Hagelin yesterday at that convention which drew about one hundred delegates.
