“Green Tea Party” – Who Wants To Join?


My friend Sophia is a wry soul. We often go back and forth. Agreement
is optional. Friendly disagreement is an absolute requirement.

Sophia recently mused that she used to dismiss Tea Partyers as
anti-government extremists of the ‘mad as hell’ variety. After
listening awhile, she has also run into a number of what she calls
‘thoughtful libertarian’ types. Rather than rants, she has discovered
that there are people interested in give-and-take discussion. Sophia
asks “Please, keep talking!”

Sophia even came up with a name for a new group: “Green Tea Party”.
The “Green Tea Party” would be home to home to thoughtful Libertarians
and kindred souls that are also environmentalist-friendly and perhaps
influenced even by a bit of Asian thought — as in taking the long
view of life and history and thought.

Wouldn’t that be the ‘Green Tea’ party?

  1. She’s correct; except it’s not just frustrated Libertarians. There is a huge movement of frustrated Americans, and voting out the incumbents in 3 weeks won’t solve anything if we put Repubs back in charge – in 2 more years we’ll be voting them out and replacing them with Dems – and we’ve wasted 2 more years.

    But who wants to attend a Green Tea party if Sharon Aingle or Christine O’Donnell are the hostesses ? You betcha!
