    I added this to “Right-wing minor parties” category because of previous discussion. However, it should be noted that Hedges said in this interview that the Prohibition Party supports single-payer health care. Though Hedges’ progressive views have been documented previously, this is the first time I’ve heard about the party’s official view on the matter.

    It’s still a right-wing party because of the party’s signature issue. Hedges seemed to stumble over his words quite a bit, but overall an interesting and informative interview.
