An anti-tax, anti-government Tea Party has set up shop in Australia, inspired by the US-based movement that has turned the Republican Party upside down.
The Australian T.E.A. Party (an acronym for Taxed Enough Already) will be targeting pre-selections across the country and heavily promotes its links to "our friends" in the United States.
Reluctant spokesman David Goodridge - "just call me the website editor" - says the grassroots movement has no plans to register as a political party, won’t stand candidates and won’t accept politicians as members.
In his first post on the T.E.A. Party’s website, Mr Goodridge argues that between big business and unions there is "a distinction without a difference in that the average Aussie is getting done over it is just a different set or subset of rapists doing the screwing".

How can you call them a Party when the state in your OP that they will not elect candidates?
Its just a few people with an opinion,like the 1000's of such groups that pop up all around the world.
Hardly woth a thread on ATS and quite missleading in the Title.

TEA Party, Totally Exempt of Aptitude
The Tea Party have no idea what they're doing, they have some vague notion that the country is messed up, but have no idea how to fix it.

What's wrong with being a liberal democrat?
Are you people really that polarized by a label? What if I were a handsome, self-made liberal democrat?
