If you already knew I was going to bring up both the Coffee and tea party then you can have a cookie. We have numerous members on ATS who are full pledge members of these groups or support their cause. I'm curious as to what my fellow ATS members views are on these two groups. I'll post the political ideologies that the groups believe in and start off the thread with my views of the two movements. Please keep this thread civil and respect other people's opinions.

Tea Party: The Tea Party movement is a United States movement that emerged in 2009 through a series of locally and nationally coordinated protests. The protests are partially in response to several Federal laws: the Emergency Economic Stabilization Act of 2008 ("bailout"), the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 ("stimulus package"), and the 2009–2010 health care reform bills. The name "Tea Party" is a reference to the Boston Tea Party of 1773—a protest by American colonists against taxes imposed on them by the British government, and against the colonists' lack of direct representation in the British Parliament. Tea Party protests have invoked themes, images and slogans similar to those used during the pre-revolutionary period in American history. "Fun fact from history" Before the Boston Tea Party, the British actually lowered tea taxes, not raised them.


Coffee Party: The Coffee Party USA is a political movement that developed as an alternative to the Tea Party movement. Its mission states that it is based on the underlying principle that the 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 we face as Americans." Its slogan is "Wake Up and Stand Up". Its stated goals include getting cooperation in government and removing corporate influence from politics.


Both parties to make big causes to get members wild up. I do side with the Tea Party on protesting the bailouts. They simply don't work. The coffee Party has a great ideology. We need to work with government and get America moving again.
Remember keep this thread civil and respect everyone else views on politics.

Well there is a Pirate party (Yes there is a political party named after pirates) There were parties from vegetarianism as well. So if you loved your broccoli more then steak that was the party for you to join.

I recall the POTUS already had a "beer" party with a professor and a policeman. What a lousy party. Traveled all that way and got, what? A bottle of light beer? sheesh. No substance to it all.

Maybe I'm just ignorant, but doesn't the Tea Party also want to work through our government institutions to create a better government that works for the people, just like the Coffee Party?

No matter. Neither party is real. It's all made up stuff to keep the masses occupied, and divided. This is merely my own opinion, of course.

I am not a hippy or a stoner, however I fully think that they should make drugs legal, tax it(which would help our ecoomy), it would put cartels out of business, but the true natural selection could be set free and loose because when it becomes legal no doubt a good many people will go hogwild and OD, which would take care of the population problem, as well. But most of all, they'd have the freedom to be themselves, which is what is truly freedom.

So the POTUS co-operates with the ATF while having a beer party? Was he monitoring the ATF while he was having the beer party mocking the tea party?
