Natural Law Party
The Natural Law Party was a United States political party which existed from 1992 to 2004. The Natural Law Party was best known for their advocacy of transcendental meditation (TM) as a centerpiece of their party platform. They claimed TM naturally reduces stress, and would therefore cut crime and other social problems. In 1992 and 1996 they ran John Hagelin for President. In 2000 John Hagelin unsuccessfully sought the Reform Party nomination, which he lost to Pat Buchanan; Hagelin then ran again as the Natural Law Party candidate. In 2004 the Natural Law Party announced they were disbanding and endorsing Dennis Kucinich in the Democratic Party presidential primary.
