    Maybe. We'll see what direction these parties take in the coming months or year(s), but they both claim to not have a political leaning.

    I consider myself to be moderate, and though I agree with the Tea Party in reducing our debt and reducing our deficit, I still believe that big government is not the issue... government that doesn't work is the issue.

    It seems to me that the more money you pour into something the better that thing will be... but clearly that is not the case for our government.

    Of course we need to get rid of government programs that do not work, but I am against deregulation of the capitalist system. Deregulation allows more companies to make unethical decisions, all the while their customers do not know what they are doing behind closed doors... so how exactly is the market supposed to regulate itself? Only regulations can give consumers protection from unethical choices by businesses.

    Do the coffee cats also have racism as a central pillar of their politics or is that just the tea party folks?

    Re: Tea Party or Coffee Party?

    As a political party I don't think I'd follow either. As redress said, there's not a TON of substance there.

    That said, while not detailed, the Tea Party does have actual stated policy goals through their recent "Contract from America" voting. While not amazingly detailed it allows me to see more specifically the type of policy and legislation this movement would wish to see.

    So far I have no seen such from the Coffee party, but would be willing to see it if I'm wrong. Their group has been even more rhetoric filled than the tea parties. Just on their basic stand point I find myself disinterested in them but would be willing to see something a bit more specific.

    As of now I'd identify far more strongly with the Tea Party.

    Apparently according to faminedynasty that must mean I hate black people. But you know, naturally its not people that make such ignorant and broadly idiotic assertions about large groups of people as he does that are problems in this country but people that dare to speak their mind.

    yeah, slander your opposition. That should work.



    BTW, I am hoping to see hazlnut, ADK, DD, and the whole slew of left wingers who harped on for months about how (falsley) the tea party was illegitimate because it was supposedly started by FOX NEWS, come in here and not look like raging hypocrites

    Re: Tea Party or Coffee Party?

    I am looking at their website and reading an interview with their founder and these coffee guys look amazing. One of my biggest problems with the tea party is that it looks like they want to fundamentally reshape the country to be something that it isn't and has never been. Our history is one of multiple cultures and backgrounds finding ways to move forward despite our differences, not a perfect ideal that we have continually deviated from since our founding.

    The coffee party appears to try and be inclusive and sensitive to multiple viewpoints in an effort to reach consensus. At least that's what I am getting from this interview. This movement seems to recognize what the US is actually about and what makes it a good country. I cannot see why anyone could be against that.

    My hope is that this movement grows and achieves the needed changes that will bring government back to the people that Obama seems unable to do. Time will tell.

    Please be specific.
