(realists) and Fundis (fundamentalists) waged a fierce, ongoing battle over political strategy, party structure and the question of entering coalitions with other parties.
Exiled poets and activists such the late Hilda Ferrer and Juanita Realos

Then there was a split between the so-called Fundies--the fundamentalists, who insisted on left-wing goals and slogans like socialism--and the Realos
, the realists, the pragmatic wing of the party.
The German Greens first elaborated this distinction as being between Realos
As the Party grew in strength, it was the realos
who proved stronger.
The writers suggest that ideally the realos
and fundis would provide the Green Party with an "optimum blend of realism and resolve.
This chain of events proves that there is no taboo on public criticism of a Green Party--the only taboo is on criticizing a Green Party which realos
think is big and powerful.
Not satisfied with this compromise, US realos
began laying the basis for a split.
That's why the ASGP realos
split in the first place.
without fundis will in time become Al Gore Democrats.
