    idea Tea Party or Coffee Party?

    READ BELOW FOR MORE INFORMATION ON THE ORGANIZATIONS!

    Which "party" do you agree with more and why? And have you or are you willing to join these groups and march with them to fix this country?


    Tea Party:
    "An ongoing, nationwide effort by grassroots protesters, a collection of individuals and self-organizing groups, all united in accomplishing a single goal: returning fiscal responsibility and limited government to the United States through the exercise of political activism. The main focus of the TEA Party Movement is a rebuke of outrageous mandates, overreaching and out of control spending by an out of touch federal government.

    All of the rallies are in protest of the generational theft of public tax monies, the tremendous extensions of United States Federal debt and authority, the apparent restructuring of the Federal government with the intent to contravene the system of checks and balances for which the Constitution provides, and the attempt, which some movement leaders say has been in progress for several decades, to sacrifice liberty for permanent dependency"
    (Tea Party Movement - Conservapedia)

    ** Note: I use Conservapedia because I felt if explains well what the Tea Party movement is about. More below...

    Tea Party Core Values: (More info at: core values or Tea Party Patriots - Official Home of the American Tea Party Movement)
    - Fiscal Responsibility
    - Constitutionally Limited Government
    - Free Markets



    Coffee Party:
    "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." ([ame=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coffee_Party_USA]Coffee Party USA - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia[/ame])

    ** Note: Again, I felt wikipedia summed up the group well. More below...

    "Coffee Party USA aims to reinvigorate the public sphere, drawing from diverse backgrounds and diverse perspectives, with the goal of expanding the influence of the People in America's political arena. We do not require nor adhere to any preexisting ideology. We encourage deliberation guided by reason amongst the many viewpoints held by our members. We see our diversity as a strength, not a weakness, because we believe that faithful deliberation from multiple vantage points is the best way to achieve the common good. It is in the responsible and reasonable practice of deliberation that we hope to contribute to society.

    We want a society in which democracy is treated as sacrosanct and ordinary citizens participate out of a sense of civic duty, civic pride, and a desire to contribute to society. The Coffee Party is a call to action. Our Founding Fathers and Mothers gave us an enduring gift Democracy and we must use it to meet the challenges that we face as a nation." (Coffee Party | Wake Up and Stand Up)

    I recently discovered the Coffee Party. So far it sounds great and I like the message. As long as it stays grassroots... They can call me a supporter!

    Re: Tea Party or Coffee Party?

    I dunno.. The Coffee Party seems so copycat on the other level to me. Until I learn and hear more? I will not be jumping on any Coffee Bandwagon if they are some extreme people. What we need is a middle of the road thing and this is clearly not it.

    How about Middle Ground? Where is that Party? Now is the time for a strong 3rd party to emerge from being buried! RISE!!!!!!

    Re: Tea Party or Coffee Party?

    I had to go with neither. Until either one gets a platform beyond feelgood soundbites I don't see myself attaching myself to either. Both have some valid points, but are short on the details and the "hows" of what they want.

    I provided more information about the Coffee Party including some links to check out in my post. You can also find more on YouTube (YouTube - coffeepartyusa's Channel), facebook, twitter, and there are some videos and articles on CNN.com as well.

    I agree with you though... we do need a middle of the road approach to our governmental issues; however I personally believe that the Coffee Party is more middle of the road than the Tea Party. The Tea Party pushes smaller government, more market control and less taxes... all mostly conservative views. But if you agree with those viewpoints, more power to ya.

    i propose a bourbon party
    So follow me into the desert
    As desperate as you are
    Where the moon is glued to a picture of heaven
    And all the little pigs have God

    Re: Tea Party or Coffee Party?

    I would have liked the Coffee Party, but it seems like its just a response to something else. I think the Tea Party movement is ridiculous, but the one thing I will give it credit for is its grass-roots base.


    I would suggest a rum & coke party if possible ...

    This is about as complex and revealing as asking "liberal or conservative?"
