  Personal Choice Party - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Personal Choice Party (PCP) is a United States political party whose presidential candidate for 2004 qualified for the ballot in the state of Utah.
Prior to forming the Personal Choice Party, Ken Larsen was well known as a political activist and frequent candidate for numerous political offices in Utah under the ballot lines of several minor parties including the Libertarian Party and the Reform Party.
Personal Choice expresses the philosophy of "live and let live." Personal Choice demands that, "as long as I am not hurting anyone else, only I have the right to choose how I spend my time, my wealth, my life, my honor." It could be considered a libertarian party.

 List of political parties in the United States - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Legally, the United States functions as a multi-party system – although political parties have no specific role under the U.S. Constitution, they are regulated by the constitutions of the individual states, which organize elections to both local and federal offices.
The second section is called “Current third parties” and it consists of those parties that have achieved (or, in the lead-up to an election, are reasonably expected to achieve) ballot status for their respective candidates for President of the United States in states with enough electoral votes to have a theoretical chance of winning.
Each of these non-major parties had ballot status for its presidential candidate in states with enough electoral votes to have had a theoretical chance of winning the 2004 presidential election.

 deseretnews.com | Personal Choice — not personal choice
Thousands of voters flocked to the Personal Choice party Tuesday, many of them unwittingly, apparently drawn in by the name and the smiley face used as the party's logo.
While the party and smiley face are genuine, many voters may have chosen the party because they thought it equated an option to choose their own candidate, election observers said.
Typically third parties receive 1 percent or less, which was the case for the other third parties on the ballot this election.

 Personal Choice Party - Third Party Encyclopedia   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-03)
The Personal Choice Party (PCP) was formed in Utah in 2003 with the intent to spread to eventually expand nationally.
The PCP can also be considered the more liberal libertarian-minded party, and the LP the more conservative one.
The PCP's candidates in 2004 were mostly pro-free speech, pro-choice, pro-gun, pro-gambling, pro-adult entertainment, pro-gay marriage, and pro-small government, but these positions can change with different candidates because the PCP does not have an official party platform.

 Personal Choice Party Founder Says 14% Vote Not a Mistake - KCPW
People were questioned about the Personal Choice selection as they were leaving polling locations, and it turns out, many people did, in fact, select it in error.
It is a bit misleading to see "Personal Choice" in a list of straight party vote options, and it's a simple mistake to make, regardless of how smart you are.

 The Collegian: Third- Party Politics
There are a variety of political parties to choose from, ranging from extreme right-wing to radical left-wing and everywhere in between.
For instance, one speaker for the party does not believe in abortion “for medical, emotional, and spiritual reasons,” but does not feel that he can force his party and this nation to share his moral beliefs.
That may be why the party feels it needs a clever marketing strategy to draw in supporters- the 2004 nominee for president chose an adult film star as his running mate in order to “close the publicity gap.” (http://www.politics1.com/personalchoice04.htm)

The Commonwealth Party is a party that favors limited government, regional/local autonomy and opposes government oppressions such as: over taxation, prohibition drug policy, overregulation in business, government waste and mismanagement, the policies of the welfare state and the over use of government.
