Until we get electoral reform, this may be the chosest thing we get to a multi-party system. Then again, it could also devolve into a situation in which the leaders of these Tea and Coffee Parties will become the heads of these voter blocs and then basically sell those votes to whichever politician gives them the money or the influence in the amount they demand. It's important to keep these Tea Parties and Coffee Parties from becoming just another cog of corruption in politics.
I have always been independent I lean toward the constitution party.
