Lange was a charismatic public speaker and very much a political rebel known for his loud objections against high taxes, state-regulations and public bureaucracy. In 1973 he founded his own party with the long but telling name Anders Lange's Party for strong reductions of taxes, charges and government intervention. The protest movement was an immediate success, capturing 5% of the votes in the parliament election the same year. By that Lange secured himself a seat in the Norwegian parliament where he served until he died of heart failure the next year.
