Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.
This is another example of the 'Cargo' phenomenon. They think by putting up a facade of what appear to be alternative ideas, they can actually launch a new movement that accomplishes something original.
This sort of liberal is simply a joke.
cpwill has said that liberals are 20% of the people. What he neglects to mention is that 40% identify themselves as conservatives, while the other 40% identify themselves as moderates.
I think the Coffee Party are made up of those moderates, or those who are center-left. Unlike the Tea Party, who are making demands on the government, the Coffee Party is trying to make a well-spoken consensus on the issues. Such a thing is hardly what extremists do.
I don't want to be part of either the Tea Party or the Coffee Party. I want to join the Cocoa Party.
The Cocoa Party Movement gives voice to Americans who want to see chocolate in government. We recognize that the federal government is not the enemy of chocolate, but the expression of our collective will to drink hot cocoa, and that we must participate in the democratic process in order to address the challenges that we face as cocoa-drinkers. As voters and caffeinated volunteers, we will support leaders who work toward the addition of those little marshmallows, and hold accountable those who want to ban hot beverages altogether.
We’re so grassroots, we’re weedroots.
We are diverse — whipped cream, cinnamon, mint-flavored, soy, or straight-up old-fashioned.
We are 100% weedroots. No astroturf Obama-campaigning former New York Times employees in the Cocoa Movement, no sirree! No grassroots racist fascist redneck Neanderthal Teabaggers either! And no hyper-partisan strategists calling the shots in this movement. We are a spontaneous and collective expression of our desire to forge a culture of ludicrous propaganda that is entirely blame-oriented.
We demand a government that responds to the needs of the majority of its hot beverage drinkers as expressed by our choice of mugs or cups; NOT corporate interests as expressed by misleading coffee advertisements posing as legitimate journalism!
We want a society in which hot cocoa is treated as sacrosanct and ordinary citizens drink it out of a sense of civic duty, civic pride, and a desire to taste something delicious. The Cocoa Party is a call to action. Our Founding Fathers and Mothers gave us an enduring gift — chocolate — and we must drink it to meet the challenges that we face as a nation.

The ghost of Jack Kevorkian for President's Physician: 2016
Wait a minute -- according to the Tea Party, the government has to do exactly what we want at moment's notice, even though we change our minds based on misinformation by TV pundits and/or don't really understand the complexity of the issue... I want my country back. Why do we have to wait 2 years for a national election-- can we have one every week??promote civility and inclusiveness in political discourse, engage the government not as an enemy but as the collective will of the people, push leaders to enact the progressive change for which 52.9 percent of the country voted in 2008.
I thought we lived in a direct democracy... Since when is this a Republic???
WikiAnswers - How many people are members of the Republican party
