    If there was an anarchist party, I'd be for it.

    Oh. Wait.

    Ooh! I like tea!

    What kind are we talking about here?

    I like sweet orange, myself.

    How about a party where people have to have PROVEN IQ's of over 120, can't have been the head of major corporations that destroyed thousands of peoples lives or get major funding from them, and actually care about trying to make things better instead of getting on tv with sound bites?

    I know. WAY too idealistic. Too many people can't listen beyond a sound bite.

    I want a party where if you get profits over a certain dollar amount from the oil or banking industries you are not allowed to talk to anyone in the government.

    That's OK. In the Toquedmustachioedpie-on-a-stick party, you will be free to make your own policy decisions based on what is right for YOU. It will even be acceptable to have CAKE pops if pie is not your bag.

    Never work...you'd be taking away a good 70% of the Democratic voter base.

    You mean I have to make decisions in this party?

    That doesn't sound like a very fun party.

    Can we all dress as pirates?

    How about we just LET them buy the election. He who raises the most money wins... the catch is all the money goes to paying down the deficit

    Hmmmm - I prefer a good Earl Grey myself, although English Breakfast Tea isn't a bad second.

    Sweetened with "home grown" honey, of course.

    Bluesy - care for a cuppa?
