The Coffee Party

Tired of being teabagged by the Tea Party? Angry at grass roots movements that turn out to be corporate astroturf? Exasperated at what passes for political discourse in this country?

You’re not alone. Now there is an alternative to the Tea Party, and it is called the Coffee Party. Their mission?

The Coffee Party Movement gives voice to Americans who want to see cooperation in government. We recognize that the federal government is not the enemy of the people, but the expression of our collective will, and that we must participate in the democratic process in order to address the challenges that we face as Americans. As voters and grassroots volunteers, we will support leaders who work toward positive solutions, and hold accountable those who obstruct them.

They have a website. They have a FaceBook page. And there is an article about them in the Washington Post (what, were you expecting Fox News?).

UPDATE: And they have a video.

    Civil discourse and cooperation? Sound like pinko commie liberal progressivist socialism to me.

    Seriously though, I hope that these guys can address the “us vs. them” attitude in politics, both in Washington and at home. Our political system is more focused on winning and not on helping the people that elected them.

    Hello,

    I just came across your blog and it’s good to see something new. I have blogged about politics before and I know the challenge, so please keep it up. I really hope you work independently and have no corporate influence.

    Well, if you read the “About” page (http://politicalirony.com/about/), you can find out all my influences. I’ve worked as a CEO and been on the boards of corporations, so I can’t say I have no corporate influence, but that has mainly served to convince me that big business as practiced now has little to do with free markets or real capitalism any more.
