Is there anyone out there who feels orphaned politically? I don’t necessarily mean middle of the road folks, but those who feel passionate about issues on BOTH sides of the political divide and who therefore feel unable to truly support any of our mainstream political parties with clarity and abandon. It seems to me that if I were to spell out what I mean, there would be something for everyone to hate. Relatives would be shocked, colleagues would cross to the other side of the cafeteria, and I would be friendless.

One stipulation that I think is important to mention is that, in order to belong to the… oh, let’s call it the Green Tea Party, you must be the kind of person whose opinion CAN BE SWAYED by rational and intelligent arguments.
